  • Replied in Oklahoma
    I'm not particularly knowledgeable about ballet, so it was a discovery to me when we went through Fairfax.  It's kind of nice these days having internet access while traveling.
  • I live west of the flint hills and have been through them a few times.  I keep thinking sometime I'll take a day and just drive around the back roads.  There's bound to be a lot of interesting ...
  • Replied in Oklahoma
    Travis, I think this is an interesting concept.  Here in rural USA I sometimes find it difficult to walk down one street and find multiple interesting shots.  However most towns have something ...
  • Replied in Hollyhocks
    Kodak Anastigmat 63mm f/2.7 cine lens on Olympus E-M1 As you can see, it's generally better as a close-up lens than from a distance. But it still can take some unique pictures further away also.
  • Replied in Stumped
    I have just a few.  The two old Kodak cine lenses are adapted to c-mount and then to M4/3.  And I have a couple of TV lenses, a Fujian 35mm lens that came from China for US $5 freight included (I ...
  • Replied in Stumped
    It's a Kodak Anastigmat 63mm f/2.7 cine lens.  I liked the pictures GnarlyDogOz posted with that lens so I bought one. The lenses from L to R: Kodak Cine Ektar 25mm f/1.9 Jupiter 8 Industar 50 Mino ...
  • Replied in Stumped
    Thank you and yes, you can do whatever you want with it.

  • If you enjoy those zooms, you might think about spending some time getting to know the 58mm too.   I have that lens but don't use mine much either.  In my case it's because I like the MC Rokkor ...
  • My first ILC was M4/3, going on 5 years ago now, an E-M10.  Shortly after getting the camera along with the kit lens I heard old film lenses could be adapted.  I tried it and I liked it. Now a few ...
  • As a farmer in the central plains of North America (Kansas), it's always interesting to me to see how things are done differently in other parts of the world.  I used to plow fields but my plow ...
  • Replied in Pastel irises
    This was taken with a Kodak Cine Ektar 25mm f/1.9 lens glued to a c-mount adapter that was bored out thanks to the instructions by Gnarly Dog Oz.
  • Minolta MC Rokkor 50mm f/3.5 macro lens, cropped Kodak anastigmat 63mm f/2.7 cine lens
  • Minolta MC Rokkor SI 28mm f/2.5 on M4/3.  Probably f/2.5, possibly f/4
  • Cheap and shoddy doesn't sound appealing.  I was thinking well built but less features.  I guess my experience with Olympus leads me to expect that.  I have the first versions of E-M1 and E-M10.  ...
  • This story might be relevant to this topic: https://www.thephoblographer.com/2019/04/17/could-a-full-frame-mirrorless-canon-rebel-be-an-ace-in-the-hole/ Basically it is a rumor that Canon could be ...
  • Thanks everyone.  Your images are quite welcome here, with or without lens information.  I didn't put it on mine simply because I don't remember which lens I used for most of the pictures.  The ...
  • Kind of depends on what you like.  Very nice black and white pictures can be made in different styles.  If you want everything crisp and clean you will gravitate towards different lenses than you ...
  • Thank you.  I like these pictures too.  I often use a custom monochrome setting on my Olympus cameras, I read about it somewhere and I generally like the look.  Contrast is +2 and on the tone ...
  • Created discussion thread Wide open, black & white
    Probably not everyone's favorite but it's a look that I enjoy.  Here are a few of mine.  I don't necessarily remember the lens used for all of these but sometimes it's nice to just enjoy the ...
