  • Shooting B&W won't make you a better photographer, but expanding your repertoire will. An interesting subject, leading lines, composition, basically the same as colour photographs, but instead of ...
  • The Nikonos has a registration distance of 28mm, if you have the proper adapter for M4/3, it will behave like normal. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flange_focal_distance
  • Focus peaking as implemented is at best a flawed tool that needs a revamp, we need more controls to adjust how it behaves, right now the results are too inconsistent. If I want accurate focus, I ...
  • While there are knowledgeable people here, it's not the best forum to find that info. Try http://www.photomacrography.net/forum/viewforum.php?f=25 These folks are serious about macro, I tossed this ...
  • If they are both accurate, you likely will not see a difference, you will have increased the odds of introducing geometry errors with each mount interface, and even compound the errors. ...

  • This is the EOS version, but the optics are the same as the FD L. https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/13870698
  • Thanks for the giggle. In my case I'd pick the FD 85/1.2 for the extra shutter speed. I don't know how the AF of the native lens will perform in a concert environment, I'd rent one to see if it's ...
  • Looks like a late MDII (line 30) http://minolta.eazypix.de/lenses/ " conical ring with DOF scale " serial 2212xxx serial 2215xxx These both look like early MDII (line 29) http://minolta.eazypix.de/ ...
  • This is a great Minolta lens resource, it explains the differences between MCI, MCII, MC-X, MD, MDII, etc.... at the bottom of the page and colour codes them for the spreadsheet. You'll see 6 ...
  • You can also upload your pics directly from the camera, which is what I typically do to avoid removing the card as much as possible.
  • Replied in Superb !!!
    Nice shots Magnar. I don't recall anyone(not trolling) saying that you couldn't take artistic astro photos, the issue comes from not being able to do real science with a great tool because the ...
  • Are you serious? Scanned pictures from Agfa APX 400, and downsized to 360pixels x 504pixels look better than the above which is @ 7952 x 5304.... I'm not sure the lens was even focused on a ...
  • Replied in Wide angle?

  • 6 bit isn't exactly EXIF, as it relies on the adapter or camera to be programed to know what the 6 bit code is telling it. Yeah, I have the Phigmenttech M adapter, I wish more adapters had an ...
  • The Adapters I would look for are like these: A threaded chromed brass insert that has set screws to hold it in, this gives you the freedom to shim or file the back so you can adjust infinity and ...
  • It's all about the image pipeline. (1) Faster readout of the sensor data. This includes bypassing a mechanical shutter, and a fast recycle time from readout, reset and the start of a new exposure. ...
  • M mount will be more universal than E, Z, R, L, or M4/3, but also has no possibility of EXIF in the future. That said, I don't think it's likely that Voigtlander will produce the 65/2 Macro APO or ...
  • Try Jim Buchanan, he used to do EF conversions of a number of lenses. His website seems to be gone http://ww38.jimbuchananspace.com/Home_Page.html I do know he's still active on FM. https://www.fre ...
  • Just look for a nice 44-2, they're nearly at the same level of a 58/2 Biotar but 1/3 the price. I have the 58/2 Biotar, Helios 44(f22), Helios 44 13blade, and Helios 44-2, I use the 44-2 the most. ...
