  • It's because you're using auto white balance and AWB is generally pretty inconsistent. Inconsistent from shot to shot on the same camera, and most certainly between different camera models. Stop ...
  • No, because you didn't take them. Photos belong to the person who created them, no matter who may have them in their possession (assuming the copyrights were not sold to the possessor).
  • There are two series of GR cameras (three if you count the original film models as well) that you are going to come across.The original GR digitals were labled "GR Digital" on the front of the ...
  • Which is why you avoid these sites altogether and host your own. Much cheaper in the long run, looks far better (assuming you have a good designer or can find good templates/themes), you control ...
  • Agreed, based on the dial around the rewind lever.
  • Yup, it really depends on how bad the sticky is and how much it bothers you. My N80 was pretty tacky and drove me nuts, so I just sold it off since I had other film bodies I used more. Currently, ...
  • We'll just have to wait and see. There's only the quoted statement I linked to available atm, so hard to extrapolate much from it to support either viewpoint. I would like to see them bring it back ...
  • Looks like one of Canon's Super 8mm cameras like this one. This one is slightly different, but likely in the same model range or pretty nearby.
  • Never say never, Kodak's still leaving the possibility open it seems. https://petapixel.com/2017/01/09/kodak-investigating-take-bring-back-kodachrome/
  • The sticky rubber is a common malady of older Nikon bodies from that era. I had an N80 (F80) that had the same problem, but was mint in every other way. People will tell you all kinds of remedies ...
  • Entirely plausible, but unless the body allows for the owner to map out the pixel on their own like some do, it's an unacceptable defect and at the very least has to go back for service so the mfg ...
  • This. This is entirely it. Folks saying it's some kind of fetish to actually want to own New gear when we paid full price for New gear are entirely off-base. It has nothing to do with some weird ...
  • This is probably your best bet then: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1029405-REG/tamron_16_300mm_f_3_5_6_3_di_ii.html Covers the same overall focal length range as your current two lenses, ...
  • I dunno, some phrases just fit a purpose better than others. You could likely use another phrase, but horses for courses.
  • Put a sock in it nitwit. No one's forcing you to be here and there's absolutely no excuse for you being as aggressive and persistent as you're being.
  • And unless you're sporting a D5 or 1DxII, you don't have any oversized and overweight FF DSLRs to carry around. The K-1 and D600 are nothing special size/weight-wise and are pretty average and in ...
  • +1 for getting a flash. For what you're trying to do, the lighting situation you're in, and for the camera you own, you're hitting your gear's limits, so you're going to have to add light if you ...
  • No they're not. If you actually compare like-for-like then there's very little if any difference. Using Nikon as an example: Nikon pro cameras like the D5 and its prior generations are direct ...
  • Yes, but if there's plenty of light then doing so would be meaningless and bad practice if you're already getting the shutter/aperture values that you require. Thus, in practical terms, it's ...
  • Replied in Nikon FM2n
    If it used a PX625 mecury battery, then grab one of these. Works like a charm and is quite economical in the long run. I have one keeping my Canonet happily skipping along. https://www.amazon.com/B ...
