  • I've successfully used the Olympus 38mm f3.5 with Olympus auto bellows to copy 16mm micro film images to the full frame of a GFX 50R. There's also a later auto f2.8 version. Be aware the f3.5 ...
  • Jim, If you have access to the 16545 Leica Elpro 1:2-1:1 designed specifically for the 2.8/100 you may have better results than using extension tubes to obtain a 1:1 reproduction ratio. Bob.
  • It's many years since I've used film (shame on me!) but I can think of 3 possibilities, all require finding a very dark place such as a photographic darkroom, cupboard or wardrobe at night. In the ...
  • I don't fly very often and when I do it's mostly economy plus to get extra leg room trans Atlantic/Pacific. I have to admit, I've been close to bins being full, full with oversized bags! Thanks for ...
  • Greg, could you explain something I don't understand? If you asked the people behind in the isle queue then they would also be asked to gate check overhead carry on since there was no more space ...
  • Jim, Thanks for the photos. Is the longest dimension of the RRS bracket less than that of the SmallRig?, difficult to tell from the photos. No backpack/bag manufacturers seem to take into account ...
  • There's an aspect of the RRS bracket that hasn't been mentioned. The horizontal and vertical components of the Arca Swiss mount are open at both ends of the mount groove. One end of the SmallRig ...
  • One aspect of Kirk and RRS brackets I've not seen mentioned is they allow unlimited horizonal movement of the camera when taking stitched images with a shift lens. This allows you to avoid ...
  • I'd certainly second what Joe says. I've used many of their glass screens and never had a problem ..... except remembering to attach a note to a camera I'm selling to explain it's there and easily ...
  • For good information search YouTube for:   Thomas Heaton Iceland   He has at least 12 videos showing what to expect from a photographer's aspect with the terrain, transport and weather, they're ...
  • I don't know how long it will be before you travel but if I was making such a trip maybe next year, I would wait to see what the rumoured wide angle zoom (20-45mm?) turns out to be. My choice ...
  • In the meantime I'd suggest the following: I've looked at the GFX 50R with an illuminated loupe and I think there are two "cover" glasses. One is close to the sensor and hermetically seals the ...
  • Is that the Lowepro Passport Sling III ? Looks to be a good fit with room to spare for extra batteries. The SmallRig L bracket and handle is an excellent addition to the 50R :) From your photo I ...
  • Replied in GFX100S Lugs
    The thing to watch out for is the sprung steel inserts are not completely closed and have serrated edges that might abrade the cords. If the 100s inserts are the same as on the other GFX models ...
