How well does it work with EF lenses and the adaptor?

What would Y Maitani have made of this?

MacroDonata: Does this mean those those X-Ray glasses sold in the back of comic books I read as a kid really worked?

Damn it! ;~)

They did, I could see the bones in my hand

I remember if you pushed a 400 ISO film to 800 or so you had to tell the person who was developing your film that you pushed it.
Paper film envelopes had a blank space for instructions.
Some airlines used film mailers as air sickness bags, perhaps as a sponsorship deal. I would wonder if anyone had barfed all over their undeveloped films.

Yes I’ve failed to check if the film is on the take up spool, I get suspicious around the 37th exposure.
I got this habit of checking the tension of the rewind handle after loading new film.
The newest film cameras with motor drive did this automatically, just load the 135 film with a tongue and the camera went whirr-click and you’re done.

I thought the Lytro was an innovative design even if version 1.0 needed more work.
I understand the real downer was that you had to upload photos to a server to get the full focus benefit. And then the company folded.

Yes the Canon AE-1 was my first SLR.
It was shutter speed priority only when I never heard of it and the ordinary cameras were match the needle types.
Eventually I got the Canon A1 which was both shutter and aperture or both with the lovely red LED displays in the viewfinder.
Also I got for a 21st birthday present "The Joy of Photography" by Michael Hedgecoe, which explained everything.

Eugene A: As an Adobe customer my details might have been compromised. Shouldn't the customers be notified of this breach at the earliest? Do I have to learn it from DPR?

Then we only need to register once, other companies can datamine our details like anyone else.

IdM photography: Stalin's public relations staff could do the job long before this app...

I notice Stalin's face has changed slightly. I suspect the photographer took many photos and used one without Yezhov or removed him from another photo.

Wasn't there an Arnold Schwartzenegger movie about that?

cosinaphile: how perfect ... doesn't the iPhone practically remove the photographer from the picture taking process already? so this app does it from the other side of the lens ?

Mike FL: Much old windows phones have one very useful App which only remove moving objects.

In other words, it only keeps people stand still such as you, but removes walking people, moving cars, and anything moves.

Very useful.

some old photos had no people in the scenes because the photo was exposed for a few minutes and the people moved too quickly to be recorded in the film.
I think they were glass plates in those tripod view cameras.
Some portraits were stiff because the people had to stay still for a minute or so.

I looked at the app store. I was only worth one star.
One reviewer said it was as useful as a chocolate teapot.
mmm chocolate...

you can use it with an odb II device to provide an overlay of guages on your movie.

Daryl Cheshire: i once subscribed to an export facility from a PDF to Excel which was for work and did everything I wanted.
But it cost $28 per year.
I used it for 2 years then they bumped the subscription to $35 p/a.
Fortunately I don’t need it for work any more.
I don’t know what it costs now.

It was an example of Adobe jacking up prices

Jason: Well shoot. $10/month is below the threshold for me to think about it too hard. At $20, I'll have to really start to consider if it's worth it. I'll definitely look for an alternative if they raise the price on me.

$10 about the price for Netflix

Yes I replaced the bright Canon strap with a neoprene one to make me stand out less.
