Re: Digitial vs Film - a real-world comparison

B&W film is capable of 18 stops, but of course it needs to compressed for printing. This is normally accomplished by over exposure to lift above the toe, then compressed by development. When it comes...

Re: Digitial vs Film - a real-world comparison

I've tried the EM5 MK 1 with an enlarger lens, and corner to corner sharpness is very good. The DxO's DR rating of Mk1 is quoted as roughly 12, so in theory it should be good enough for at least web...

Re: Digitial vs Film - a real-world comparison

I always thought Kodachtome produced magical results, if correctly exposed. Very unforgiving, much like a digital camera for highlights, and what's more muddy blacks and shadows if underexposed. I...

Re: Digitial vs Film - a real-world comparison

Personally I don't try to compare 35mm film against digital, certainly not for sharpness since most digital cameras will beat film hands down, but film has phenomenal dynamic range of up to 18 stops...

Re: Totally manual lenses - how to focus?

I may be confusing Panasonic with Olympus terminology, but I think you have to 'inform' the camera to 'shoot' without a lens. That aside, mirrorless cameras are designed for and work best with AF...

Re: Life as a "Lefty"

Someone mention film :)
Yes, we need more companies entering the film market, new cameras. How many remain apart from Leica (God bless them).

Re: As a certain arty-farty might say…

The Liberal Democrats are calling for a second referendum. Would an even number of referendums be democratic? No, as with coin tossing, it always has to be an odd number. So perhaps the 'man with...

Re: Life as a "Lefty"

No, Paul, I'm using both digital and analogue, digital primarily for colour and film for B&W. I also use digital as a Polaroid, as it were, prior to committing precious film. Not many will understand...

Re: The Beautiful Babes of Bondi Beach

Give it a trial run, live here for 5 years and keep a count of the nice sunny days. I bet (metaphorically speaking) it won't exceed 100 days. And what's more, we have all that Fosters to contend with...

Re: Life as a "Lefty"

I drive to the best of my ability a 24MP mirrorless, weight (I mean mass) is 680g and the glass and brass lens another 500g. I don't find it too heavy to haul.

Re: Wedding Photographer recommendations please

Try Peak Imaging, but any photo lab worth their whatnots should provide profiles, if asked. If the customer doesn't ask, then they probably conclude (correctly) the customer can't be a****.

Re: Wedding Photographer recommendations please

This is why you should close the loop with the photo lab. They provide profiles to be loaded in LR or PS. If you follow the procedure accurately, the images will be quite reasonable. Your experience...

Re: Wedding Photographer recommendations please

What, make your own from a bunch of JPEGs on a memory stick - with luck maybe. How would you close the loop in terms of colour management?
