  • Replied in Scanners
    The V850 is Epson's current top of the line, like the 4870 used to be. The V850 will scan up to 8x10 film if need be. It's a right good scanner, it is.
  • Actually, compared to a number of local options, they save me quite a bit, which is not an insignificant thing to me and my family. They are not unique in this in any way, in fact most retail is ...
  • Means nothing. Like I said, the English usage of the word has been incorrect since its introduction, so any dictionary entry would naturally reflect that error as well. No matter, it seems to be ...
  • This is one that people should probably start letting lie as the English usage has been incorrect since its introduction. "bokeh" means blur and nothing more, "bokeh-aji" is the correct term for ...
  • In my case, I had a local camera shop that sold me an old HP P&S they had laying around for $10. It looked liked it had been kept in a bag of rocks (probably a purse actually, so not far off), but ...
  • I'm similar to the other couple early posters. Still have my D3 from 2008 and use it regularly. It has a fogged lcd, but like the others I only really notice it when the camera is off.  Otherwise, ...
  • Are they pixelated in Photos when you view them immediately after taking them, or after you email them somewhere and then view them? Please explain every step you take from shooting to viewing ...
  • Just a stab in the dark, but make sure low-quality image mode is turned off in Messages on your devices. Your friend may be using it as well, hence his are blurry too.
  • It feels odd for only a few days, then you don't pay any attention to it at all. I thought I'd feel the same when I got my 7+ last year, but after week I paid no attention to it, and actually now ...
  • The only difference between LR6 and CC2015 is the serial number you use. Put in a serial with a perpetual license and it's LR6; use a subscription license and it's CC2015. Adobe uses download for ...
  • I would look for some kind of motorized turntable/lazy susan, put a piece of white foam core on it, then film it while it rotates. You may find a device specifically for this use, but you could ...
  • If you're asking about whether to use sRGB or AdobeRGB etc., then use sRGB. sRGB is the most widely used profile for online/computer use, and most 3rd party printing houses request it as well, ...
  • It is, and fairly economical as well - at least compared to sheet film. I know a number of large format shooters that use paper negs for economic reasons.
  • Oh, you most certainly can make contact prints from paper negatives. Pinhole photographers have been doing it forever, it's the most basic procedure there is. Standard Multi-grade RC paper works ...
  • On digital, not at all. I tried using my Canon FD's adapted to my X-T1 when I had it and it was clunky at best and nothing like their true MF usage when on their film bodies. Also tried it on the ...
  • Swing . . . . . . . . . and miss!
  • More interesting than reading about young people who never question anything and are happy with the amount of Vaseline and new underpants they have to buy as a result.
  • To the OP, this is probably a very nebulous answer, but it just comes from experience and time - and a lot of shooting. It's definitely helpful to look at others' photos and if there's critique ...
  • There's definitely luck involved, but also just a little bit of judicious cropping as well. He knew what he had when he looked at the test print and adjusted accordingly. Not that that's a bad ...
  • If you're on a Mac you don't need cloud services, iTunes, or anything similar to get the photos off the phone; that just makes things overly complicated. Simply, startup Image Capture, which comes ...
