  • This.  Digital Rev touched upon film a few times, and it was always interesting.  I'd like to see more of that.  (The Holga review is classic.)
  • Uhh... Yes and no. When you release the soft press it re-enables peaking but not magnification. Which seems pretty sensible to me. To me a "perfect set of tools" would include a built-in EVF, a ...
  • Here's something that nags me about the Sony A7. On the Fujifilm X-T1 there is a button right next to the EVF that switches between LCD, EVF, or eye-sensing (automatic). That's sensible and highly ...
  • I've never used a GXR, so maybe I just don't know what I'm missing.  I've got to say, though, that I don't understand ragging on the A7 series. Mirrorless cameras I've owned include the. . .   ...
  • If I could only have one do-everything, best-compromise, all-around system camera, then it would probably be Micro Four Thirds.  It would definitely be good for the "hiking and traveling" needs ...
  • Replied in Ona Bowery
    I have the leather Bowery.  It looks great and it's convenient for carrying around a body with lens mounted, plus another lens -- or two, if they aren't too big.  It's well made, and I like it. How ...
  • uhh. . .   Correct me if I'm wrong here, but I think if you were shooting color film in the 1950s, you were pretty much shooting Kodachrome.  It may not have been the only possible option, but it ...
  • Yes, probably. That's the kind of thing I'd go for, but at the same time I do have some skepticism. . . I'm not sure that you can easily summon a much bigger-and-better EVF into existence. I think ...
  • Created discussion thread How about those Fujica-X lenses?
    I was just curious about these.  I'm referring to the bayonet-mount lenses that Fuji produced after M42 but before they went into autofocus.  I got the impression that these were only made for a ...
  • I got a couple of light meter apps for my iPhone 5s, which I thought would be very handy when I was using old film cameras.  However. . .  It was never accurate in comparison to other light meters ...
  • Replied in Q System?
    That's surprising to me.  I've found my Q7 has the most dependable autofocus of any camera I've owned.
  • It looked like Pentax couldn't quite decide whether it was supposed to be a camera or a running shoe or a Transformers toy robot.  So, that explains the ugly part.  The K50 was pretty much the ...
  • Thanksgiving Day Butterfly S-M-C Macro-Takumar 100mm F4 These guys really don't like to sit still at all.
  • I was lucky to get my hands on a Pentax Q7 Premium Kit.  So, I've got the snazzy little custom bag that holds the camera body and five (5!) lenses and weighs nearly nothing, and it goes ...
  • This is not for everyone, and it may not be for you, but anyhow here's what I did. . . Got a used Sony A7 off eBay.  Got a M42 thread mount lens adapter.  Got a nice selection of M42 lenses off ...
  • Incidentally, I lurve my Super Takumar 200mm F4 that I got in "minty" condition off eBay for peanuts. :-D
  • I've mastered a lot of post-processing operations, and I can apply all kinds of effects in Lightroom, and CameraBag, and the GIMP, etc.  (CameraBag is nice for laying on the Lomo/lo-fi effects.) ...
  • I snagged a used A7 off eBay to use with adapted lenses.  It's working well for me, and I haven't missed the stabilization at all.  As always, your mileage may vary.
  • It seems like we all started with a very simple concept, of stating field-of-view in terms familiar to users of 35mm film (i.e. 135 format / full frame), and it's grown from there into a swamp ...
  • In very general terms, options 1 and 4 should produce identical results.  Assuming both the FF and APS-C sensors have the same pixel density and other specifications, then you are taking exactly ...
