  • "INCLUDING Canon cameras like the AE-1 that pros used to use!" Can't remember having ever seen a pro using an AE1. Maybe the  A1 but than invariably would have been with a motor drive attached :
  • Replied in Amazing!
    Seriously, many times I have pointed out that no matter how technically good a camera is ,if it does not fit well in your hands chances are you are not going to enjoy using it and therefore your ...
  • This is how the BBC commented on the debate : "It may be hard to remember, but before Mrs Clinton was a secretary of state, or a senator or a first lady, she was a lawyer - and, by all regards, a ...
  • Maybe Mr Trump should have used the "Pay no Taxes" slogan. "I paid no taxes for years and so can you. Let me show you how" (not paying taxes "makes me smart" Donald Trump *) For the ones that are ...
  • Gestalt is as important to me as bokeh and iconic. Give me those and Ansel Adams and I am happy to wax lyrical about film and its uniqueness.
  • "Had to laugh when Trump proclaimed his temperament was his strongest asset. Hillary laughed too, and the audience." No he did not say that. Simply because you saw that on live TV it does not mean ...
  • Hello, this is Earth. We are the third planet from a star we call the Sun years later... several years later : what ? another several years have passed silence....
  • yes sure... do you ever meet up with Mr Trump in your own version of reality  ?
  • This is the Trump we know : https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/mar/12/donald-trump-briarcliff-manor-golf-course-tax His golf club is worth , according to him, either 50 millions or just 1.4m ...
  • Well you are not going to get anywhere near a 21% profit margin selling photographic hardware.
  • Replied in Lens Color
    The Nikon Series E lenses used different glass and coating from the one used in the Nikkor lenses. Therefore the colour rendition is slightly different, so it happens even  within the same brand.
  • The problem is that most people outside the industry have little idea of how competitive photographic retail is. For example see the "we are ripped off here in the UK ' comment. Well not 100% sure ...
  • Replied in Exactly!
    What puzzles me is how these aliens travel light years to come and see us but once they are here they dart around a bit, maybe pick up someone in Alabama to anally probe and then disappear again. W ...
  • And how exactly is finding out if a film 9 years out of date works or not ? Is one going to place an ad to find more of them IF by any chance one is happy with the results ?
  • Those two lenses are not the same and appear to me too far apart to get 3D. However it is a movie so details like that are not visible to the typical viewer so not sure what they were trying to ...
  • So is it correct or not ?
  • "The fact that Gorge HW Bush has said he will vote for trump simply drives the point home The Dems and the Repubs are in bed together and all they care about is keeping their power" and if Al Gore ...
  • If you don't know for sure that you may have some emotionally important shots in the Yashica (people,pets...) don't bother. No I would not use that 2007 Velvia either. You might still get something ...
  • Replied in Dec 2003
    I used a different name then. Had to change when for some reason I could not log in any longer (no I was not banned...) possibly because I was using a work computer not registered to me.
  • Not 100% sure but you should be able to unscrew the head off your tripod. You then would have a 3/8" screw thread sticking out. To that you could attach the Manfrotto reproduction arm and then ...
