  • Created discussion thread Venice Film Festival 2019
    I've mentioned it before, but I booked a flight to Venice earlier in the year. By coincidence I picked the date of the Venice Film Festival, and so when I was there earlier in the week I popped ...
  • Replied in EF100mm f/2
    I have one as well. In fact the reason I bought it was because there's very little about it on the internet. It's good but it feels redundant - sandwiched between the 85mm f/1.8, 100mm f/2.8 Macro ...
  • On a prosaic level my photography is influenced by a combination of the weather and travel costs, so I suppose indirectly I'm influenced by the price of oil and political factors. Britain has a ...
  • Just for fun, here's a shot I took with a Kodak DCS 520, a two megapixel digital SLR that didn't have an anti-aliasing filter: Ouch. The next image was shot with a DCS 760, which has a six ...
  • The original XA is one of my favourite cameras, probably my favourite 35mm camera. It's terrific - excellent distortion-free lens, tiny body, large viewfinder, with control over focusing and ...
  • Glad you asked. This is one of those in-theory-but-in-practice things. In theory if you're taking landscape images far from society the look of the camera doesn't matter, although in a crowded ...
  • From what I remember I used a homemade red filter - a piece of red lighting gel held in front of the lens. Back when I shot it Shanghai GP3 was the absolute cheapest black and white film ...
  • I learned how to developed black and white film for exactly the same reason - in the late 1990s I bought a Holga and decided that developing my own film would be cheaper than popping to Joe's ...
  • I sort-of used to have a Canon 1N. I actually owned a Kodak DCS 520, which was built on the DCS 520's chassis (and before that I owned a Canon D2000, which was the same camera): The 1n component ...
  • Lensrentals did a thorough comparison of the leading 70-200mm f/2.8 models a while back: https://www.lensrentals.com/blog/2019/07/just-the-mtf-charts-70-200mm-f2-8-zooms/ Their conclusion was that ...
  • I ordered a 70-200mm f/2.8 IS from them back in 2011 (the UK site). It was reasonably priced, the description was accurate, delivery was fine. I don't use them more often because they use couriers ...
  • A fortnight from now I'm off to Venice for a well-earned holiday. I booked it earlier in the year and by sheer coincidence - I didn't realise it at the time - I picked the week of the Venice film ...
  • Plus one. I tend to judge photographers on their photography - even Hitler had good points* - but the people who are living out their retirement on Flickr's help forums are terrible photographers. ...
  • PowerShot G10. The same camera appears here: http://www.woodyallenpages.com/2016/01/rip-vilmos-zsigmond-woody-allen-cinematographer/ My hunch is that if you're an actual working professional you ...
  • Off the top of my head there was a Canon 300mm f/1.8 - a one-off for horseracing events where they needed a really fast shutter speed for photo-finishes. It resembled a full-frame lens but I wonder ...
  • I use an Epson V500, which is getting on a bit now. I understand the next model up will scan 5x4. The V500 scans two strips of 35mm at a time, or up to 6x9 medium format. I bought it in 2012 (for ...
  • I'd never really thought about it until you pointed it out, but sensor size and pixel pitch have the same amount of letters. Ten letters. Which of the two is my favourite? Sensor size, because I ...
  • I second the Mamiya TLR system. A few years ago there was a glut of old medium format gear on eBay so I decided to see what it was like. The Mamiya TLR lenses have lovely bokeh, they're fairly ...
  • In practice you'll have to make a complete break. The 20D won't fetch much on the used market; the 50mm f/1.8 slightly more, but not much more; the 17-40mm f/4 more still, but again not a great ...
  • A bit of Googling chucks up James Hutching's In the Heart of the Sierras, Yo Semite, Big Trees etc : http://www.yosemite.ca.us/library/in_the_heart_of_the_sierras/ I learn that: "Hutchings ...
