  • Replied in Rokkor 40mm f2
    The 40mm Rokkor was a great lens, small and capable. The fact they command the prices they do shows how well they are regarded; a few year ago £200 was a good price. You will find the “magenta ...
  • I do now.
  • Created discussion thread I like photographing this subject
    It has a lot of shadow and highlight areas that need controlling without ruining the middle tones. it also cheers me up on a dull day to see a photo of late summer. Tried out a Hasselblad 907 ...
  • I am finding the comments interesting. I tend to keep things pretty much as they were, or as I thought they were, but will enhance if it produces something enjoyable to me. It’s all practice. The ...
  • Created discussion thread It’s a miserable day
    but we wander out and take some photographs. When we arrive back home we dump them into the food photo processor and see we have detail in the sky, detail in the shadows, the colours are correct ...
  • It allows the camera to recognise the lens and make any corrections needed.  The frame is decided physically by the cam.
  • The only problem I foresee is, if you do move onto a Leica body, the lens lacks the id coding. Makes no difference when used with non-Leica.
  • 100mb monochrome 4x4 sensor and GPS. Inside knowledge….😄

    At under £2000.00

  • In this pandemic era, we are all having to cast out nets nearer to home when out photographing. I think there is a lot to be learnt from approaching a boring, bland and mundane subject and ...
  • Both lenses are fantastic but I would question whether buying a 35, if you already own a 50, is the right step. Might  be worth considering a 28 or 24 as the next purchase. Perhaps even the 21 SE, ...
  • Both the barriers and the experimental blue lights at railway station were introduced, in part, because of the increasing number of deaths by”diving in front of running trains”. The following is a ...
  • even the small local stations were being updated during my last visit in 2019. Takatsu in on the Den-en-Toshi line
  • which is, for the most part, devoid of maskless, non-social distancing tourists and visiters. The limiting of avaiable areas which can be attended safely is, in a way, a good thing because one is ...
  • Created discussion thread Japanese Railway Stations
    are now, have been for over 2 years, installing anti-suicide barriers to prevent deaths and delays across the railway system. SL601   'rit 28mm 800ISO 1/30 sec f3.5 Its a policy which seems to be ...
  • I can only speak of my lens (now sold but only to fuel the purchase of a SL lens), my lens was pin sharp at f1.4 and, at any smaller aperture, depth of field took care of any focus shift. I don’t ...
  • Created discussion thread Photograph of Tairajima
    Sitting in the Pacific Ocean just off Izu. SL601 50mm 'lux

  • useful links, thanks
  • Created discussion thread Getting to Grips with capture One
    It falls short of Lightroom in some ways but, results wise, it is very, very good. Have uploaded a few Japan shots; A wander from Tokyo station to the emperor's palace and a couple more. Have a ...
