Any change there'll be adapters for other lenses like mamiya 645?

I switched from Ektachrome to Velvia when I started scanning with a Flextight and having discovered the 'black dots' on the Kodak film. But man, Kodachrome sure brings back memories, shooting the temples of Kyoto in 1984!

Who cares about iso 25,600 and up, DR of 14 stops, phase detection, 150 AF points.....look at this:

munro harrap: My last work on Kodachrome was ruined by Kodak's processing of it. Completely. They refunded the cost of the film, but I lost five weeks work. It kind of put me off....

You fool ;-)
Even one day of work I would never send to develop in one go, just to avoid the risk.

Congrats, I've only been part of your history for the last 40 years, but hoping to be another 40.....

For the first time in more than 40 years (since I bought my first Nikon F2) I'd call a camera sexy!

I own 6 Nikkor 50mm lenses to match my timeline-setup, Nikon F, F2 F3 F4 en F5. I still like the Ais f2.0 best. My favorite lens for pack shots: Micro Nikkor 55 f2.8. Lately I use a Mamiya Sekor MF 45mm on my D800 with a shift adapter to stitch landscapes....beautiful quality! For my Fuji X-pro I recently bought a 50mm MD Rokkor f1.4..very hard to focus, but wonderful bokeh. King of the heap, Nikkor 85mm MF 1.4 together with the 105mm f1.8 Ais.

Lucky him....a good friend of mine was doin' some street photography in Rio. He saw a guy running on the other side of the street and tried to take a shot of him. In his viewfinder he could see the guy making a turn and before he knew it he was staring at the barrel of a gun! Bye bye Leica.......

I like the last sentence best:
Although lesser discussed, Gahan reportedly paid the men to repeatedly ride across the frame to get the photo he wanted.

I used to work nightshifts at a Philips plant, doing quality control on laser units for Matchline color teevees (remember those?)...... the 'best' ones were going out for export to European countries like Germany Sweden etc, 2nd level for domestic use (Holland) and the rest went to Asia, Americas and the rest of the world....I couldn't believe it at first but I guess all major industries work like this!

Dear Damien, who are you to judge if it's OK to buy and love a camera, based on the way it looks? If people want to spend money on a new racebike every year (and hardly ever cycle) I find them stupid, but hey, it's their life! I have the full Nikon F 'history' in black (F. F2. F3. F4 and F5) sitting on a shelf and I NEVER use them.....but just looking at them every now and them gives me a wonderful feeling!

Nice, maybe even good. Great? No, impressive? Hardly. Better pics than I took at that young age, but since they're published here I judge them not keeping his age in mind. Giving them a second glance they're already start to get boring. Sorry.
