  • Other - It's the tactile sense of connection to the photo that you can only get from a manual lens, and adapting old ones is really the only way to feel it.
  • I think you're right. FWIW, I have two Sony APS-C and one (soon to be two) Sony FF and enjoy using both formats. Thankfully, I've never witnessed any sensor format snobbery whatsoever here  :-)
  • Just up the road from Moffat, there's a landform that reminds me (on a small scale) of Highland Scotland's Rannoch Moor and which looks particularly stunning when the winter morning mists lie low ...
  • I agree with your second point and I'm always at pains to note whether an image was shot on APS-C or FF. I remember posting a specific lens thread here (the Vivitar 17 IIRC) showing examples of ...
  • Seen through a Minolta Rokkor 35mm f/2.8 on a full frame senor. Conditions here in Moffat a few hours ago were great for northern lights photography with a low half moon in the east painting the ...
  • As the Sigma Superwide II 24 f/2.8 fits your parameters, it might be worth a punt. It costs less than £50 and is certainly sharp enough in centre at bigger openings. My copy is a little astigmatic ...
  • I'm another one who's completely unconvinced whether any part of a filmic look can be conveyed on a screen on which its colour gamut and tonal density is going to appear differently and with a ...
  • Hi John, I've just replied to your email. No problem at all, and I look forward to hearing what you think when I've returned the prints. You may very well put me to shame by more exacting standards ...
  • OCP is a German manaufacturer. 8 x 100 ml bottles of pigment ink are listed on eBay by U.K. seller Intelliink for about £40 inc. post. Search for Epson R2400 ink. You'll obviously need a set of ...
  • If I see a reasonably priced 135/3.5, I'll look to buy it. I kinda wish I hadn't sold the one I owned but I had a purge of 135's after I bought the Zeiss Jena. There are certainly still some deals ...
  • A beaten up POS of an optically good lens will go places that one you're afraid of getting wet/dirty/stolen will. They're also less intimidating to have pointed at you. Arguably, lenses with good ...
  • Assuming you have a suitable camera & lens combination to do it with, you could just take a photograph of your photograph. A good camera and suitable lens used with a steady hand or tripod will ...
  • D'oh, my mistake. The good things about the 135 3.5 IIRC were its light weight, compact size and built-in hood. As you say, although that 135 2.8 sold at a daft price, an avid Rokkor fan might want ...
  • Don't give up on the Epson if it's still working. I have a 4800 too, use OCP ink and it's good enough for everything I print. A litre of pigment ink (spread across all 8 colours) works out at ...
  • But who are the mugs presently bidding on this Minolta Rokkor 135 f/3.5 ? It's an OK lens (I owned one) but it's no more remarkable than the majority of 135 f/3.5 lenses, and a lot less remarkable ...
  • Replied in TAP?
    I'm with you on what tap still means to me up here in bonny Scotland, but it's them there 'mericans who use faucets instead of taps that coined the TAP acronym for the Techart Pro (see OP first ...
  • I haven't attempted what you were doing with the TAP but I'm sure it would have bugged the hell out of me too if I had. But I just use the camera's IBIS focal length setting as if it had a totally ...
  • OK I get you ... You must have wanted to record EXIF info ? I'm not bothered about EXIF info (I've been without it for so long that it just doesn't matter to me any more) so I keep 'aperture' set ...
  • I didn't understand what you meant about TAP configuration as there's nothing much to configure. Anyway, I love my TAP. Pretty much everything here from the bus onwards is TAP-assisted. I also do ...
  • I bought a pre-owned TAP from a DPR forum user recently, I've been absolutely delighted with it and unless it breaks, I'd see no good reason to change it. But I was interested in these statements ...
