  • Nobody "must" compare 60MP FF sensor and 4/3 sensor "at the same print size". That suggestion is just absurd. Presumably, the whole point of large sensors is to have more detail to print...

  • Replied in Send it back
    Whether it's worth saving or not is probably not the right question. Any repair attempt is similar to a surgery and carries a risk. Even if the lens can be saved, you should not be taking on that ...
  • Allow me to respectfully disagree. This will be a dumb product for Leica to launch. There are hordes of EVF cameras with IBIS that take M-lenses with a cheap adapter and those companies are miles ...
  • Replied in You are right
    Bingo! The RAW files look much better. In this case my criticism should be applied to in-camera JPEG engine. The difference is almost hilarious.
  • Sure. Here's a perfect example . Seemingly every edge is wrapped with a halo as if the 2px unsharp mask wrecked it, the brick wall looks unnatural (something happened to bricks texture) and the ...
  • Replied in Dpreview samples
    I also glanced at dpreview samples and they have the same issues. Images look over-processed at 100% and the detail is simply not there. Anyone can open dpreview full-sized samples from Sony A7r ...
  • Well I don't want to be the guy who ruins everyone's parade, but I wonder if I'm the only one who noticed that full-sized images tend to fall apart? This one: https://www.slack.co.uk/Mll_full_sized ...
  • Replied in Yes
    This is coming from the owner of two Leicas: they are 80% men jewelry and 20% cameras, and have been this way since Japanese SLRs stole photographers from them. How do I know? Because: (1) The best, ...
  • Replied in Why used?
    Why used? Old spot meters are huge & bulky. This little gem makes them all obsolete: https://www.reveni-labs.com/shop/p/reveni-labs-spot-meter-pre-order
  • Replied in Expectations
    Ulrik, I think the issue here is your expectations. Delta 3200 wasn't meant to deliver any detail in the shadows. It is not a linear (like HP5+) and not an S-shaped (like Tri-X) film. If you look ...
  • :-) Fair enough, but most of the tools you listed can work with either hardware. I think you're confusing personal preferences with the capabilities of software. A competent user could have ...
  • Replied in No to DarkTable
    I have not tried the RawTherapee module, but I disagree strongly with the DarkTable recommendation and I suggest you remove it from your list (which you share often here). DarkTable's inversion ...
  • Take a look at Eastman Kodak earnings statement. Their film and chemicals division posted $133MM revenue for 9 months of 2021, so lets round up to $180MM per year. Let's assume they take home ...
  • Replied in Nice
    Jim, Thank you for these. While I myself left the GFX system behind for film scanning purposes due to complete lack of native auto-focus 1:1 macro options, I am fascinated by what you're doing with ...
  • Replied in Nice image! (nt)
  • Replied in Ektar scanning
    Probably depends on the software one's using for the inversion. This equally applies to scanners and cameras. I only used Silverfast, but I hear that Epsn Scan is not good with color (regardless ...
  • Replied in Bronica GS-1
    The Bronica GS-1 is usually overshadowed by the Mamiya RB/RZ67, and that's why it's a bargain for anyone looking for a complete, modular 6x7 system. The reason I like it so much is because the GS-1 ...
  • Replied in Scanning Ektar
    The OP probably confused latitude (ability to tolerate exposure errors) with dynamic range (ability to capture wide range of EV values/zones). When exposed properly, all Kodak CN films have ...
  • Replied in Portra 800
    Yes, the 800 to be specific. It is the most saturated Portra. If you love Ektar you will not be disappointed by Portra 800.
  • Replied in Reasonable
    I used to shoot with Voigtlander Color Skopar 21mm on my Leica M6. This kit was incredibly compact and it was a lot of fun to use on the go. I was shooting it without a viewfinder with fairly ...
