  • I took a F100 with the 50mm 1.8D lens to Vietnam and it was a brilliant kit. Small  light and sharp. The F100 meter is dead on accurate. Took this shot using Kodak TrI-X 400 film.
  • Replied in EM5 hands down
    My favorite which was stolen in 2014 was my original EM-5. It was my first MFT camera and I fell in love with it.  I have been shooting Olympus ever since. Replaced it with the PenF and then added ...
  • Replied in Crop ff to MFT
    Would be nice to keep my 300mm F4 if someday we are forced to buy into a new camera system
  • Replied in Might buy
    Looks fantastic and I am seriously looking to adding this lens to my kit.  I have the 300mm f4 but it is trouble sometimes when shooting the big animals and being too close and can’t get them all ...
  • Created discussion thread Crop ff to MFT
    What FF megapixel count would you need to equal a 20mp MFT sensor in resolution when cropping the file ? . No real point in the question really. I am a happy long time Oly shooter but just ...
  • Replied in 2 best films
    The two best black and white landscape films are Fuji Acros 100 especially for long exposures and Kodak Tmax 100. No need for the really slow films these two will look better. Invest in a orange ...
  • Here is an example I shot this morning. He yelps at me at 0:55 and it sounds great and also you can hear the other elk break a branch and it sounds good. However there is a lot of background noise ...
  • Great such good advice thank you. I will order a Rode mic  I do see Olympus has some Sound recorders and was wondering about those as well
  • Created discussion thread Mic for EM1.2 ?
    I need a good mic on my EM1.2 to record animals. I have zero experience with this so was hoping someone could point me to a good one. This elk was about 50 yards away this morning and bugling and ...
  • Set your flash to manual mode. Get your exposure nailed down including iso, shutter and aperture on the digital then mimic those settings on your film camera.
  • Can't go wrong with the film developers charts. I think some of the Massive developers numbers are from people who have tested the film and chemical developers and came up with what they think ...
  • Replied in This is one
    I just scanned this one hour ago. Scanned it with my Epson V850 Pro. I am really happy with the scan at 300dpi. The full size Tiff looks fantastic. It is a black and white Fiber print I made in ...
  • Thank you. I shoot a Nikon F3HP and a Hasselblad 503 CXI and a Chamonix 4x5. Mostly shooting the 4x5 right now for landscapes.
  • Created discussion thread some of my work.
    Some of my work on this wordpress blog below.I don't have web site so this is it. Almost all of it shot on film. Some tasteful female nudes so if that is trouble don't visit. I am working in the ...
  • I have seen his work hanging in the Gibson Gallery in Seattle. His print quality is perfect also I have spoken with him via email and he is super nice and helpful. I have one of his books and ...
  • Created discussion thread Protest photos Pen F
    Pen F using the Black and White front dial setting and the square frame. 25MM F1.8 I think I had it set at F4 if memory serves me correctly
  • Created discussion thread New print
    Camera is Chamonix F1 4x5 with Nikkor 210mm at F 22 and Tmax 100 film. Ilford Glossy Fiber paper. This is a photo from the iPhone of an 8x10 print in the Matt. I think I will make a 16x20 print ...
  • I forgot about the Sigma that is definitely a great choice.
  • Replied in Notice
    Notice I said if I didn't already own the 45 and 75mm lenses. However since I do own both lenses I am not buying the 45mm 1.2. As far as weight of the 1.2 how much does the weight of the 45 and 75 ...
  • I own both and love both. However if I didn't and wanted a new portriat lens I would spend just a tad more than this combined price and get the 45mm 1.2
