Re: Voting procedures...

Another tried and tested method, the Eurovision voting system...

Re: First proper trip with the EM1 - and I have some issues

Very good, but what's your 'keeper rate'?

I have difficulty exposing and keeping 36 frames, but I generally hit 80%. :) However, I won't embarrass myself by saying how long it takes me.

Re: Thom Hogan slams Olympus M 4/3

Spot on.
And for me I think the image quality of u4/3 - even the EM5 mk1 - is beyond what I wish for. Perhaps older glass would correct the situation. I want to see a certain character, not...

I'm not enlisted, but if an Epson V-850 comes up on a Prime 'deal' I will definitely buy through your link.

Re: June 2018 Photo Challenge: Reflections

Imagine six entries and six likes allocated, one awarded to each image. The result will be 'flat' response without a winner, but on the plus side everyone will get top marks.

Re: Anyone into Cyanotypes ?

Thanks for the link, Mark.
I cut to the chase for the summary, but I will read more fully before the alchemy begins.

Just think, the Red Arrows and the "decisive moment", or the French equivalent 'The Patrouille Acrobatique de France'! Leica M3 avec le 5cm.

Re: First proper trip with the EM1 - and I have some issues

Good lord, 2000+ images to sort, I wouldn't know where to begin.

It was Henri Cartier-Bresson who said one's first 10,000 'shots' [I doubt he would use the word 'shot' incidentally] are the worst,...

Re: Thom Hogan slams Olympus M 4/3

The M43 was driven by commercial decisions based on the cost of FF sensor manufacture (due to fabrication errors and wastage, the cost probably goes up by x^2, at least). Process technology has...

Re: Thom Hogan slams Olympus M 4/3

Or, what you lose on film (ie the cost) you gain by not suffering depreciation. In fact if you purchase the 'right' camera it will increase in value (as I have happily found out myself).

Anyone into Cyanotypes ?

The technique often uses physical objects such as pressed flowers, twigs etc, or large negatives, 8"x10", for example. Not many of us have large cameras, but all is not lost. I found a tutorial...

Re: ISO 3200 from Kodak

The link leads (me, others may have a different experience) to some privacy settings. I have a tendency to hang-up when this occurs. Probably safe and something to do with recent EU legal thingamie.

Re: Agfa Vista 200

It does appear that the number of films available is smaller than the headline figure. It's encouraging, though, that some can make a business by doing so.

I purchase from 7dayshop, and other vendors too. 7day are competitive and p+p is included, so the price you see is what you pay.

"How many different types of film stock still available today?", you ask. Well, Emulsive.org is part-way through cataloging the current availability and the total so far is 157.

One would be forgiven for thinking that all the designers with an understanding of photography, or better still being practitioners, changed occupations when digital came into being.

You should crop with your feet, to mis-quote Ernst Haas, but the same sentiment non the less.

Thanks Jim.

It's the negative in full and I dislike cropping as a result of straightening etc..
