Re: Never have I ever

I didn't even know you could make a double exposure on a digital camera. :confused:

I rarely use anything that isn't found on my film cameras. Auto-focusing is useful but I tend to focus manually...

Re: Postage Stamps to Go Up Next Week

I'm not so sure about that. We send out a lot of post using the First Class Recorded (Signed For) service. As it is tracked we can easily found out when it is delivered, and in most cases it is...

Re: Postage Stamps to Go Up Next Week

That is an interesting question Harold.

Some/many Academic Theologians believe that Jesus' Incarnation at the Annunciation and his crucifixion were on or very close to the very same day of the...

Re: Recent Thread Closure

That is all true Wally, but in my experience using a film camera, and especially a medium format film camera, forces the mind and eye to work very differently to when using anything digital.

But...

It is indeed, and is quite lively on occasions in a gentle sort of way.

Re: Postage Stamps to Go Up Next Week

I was curious about the seemingly random date of the price increase, and then it dawned on me. Yesterday was the Feast of the Annunciation, which in medieval times marked the New Year (Edit) and is a...

Re: Recent Thread Closure

The RZ67, like the Mamiya 645 Pro has plenty of interlocks to stop things from going wrong, so even the most bumbling wedding or school tog should be protected from their ineptitude!

Re: Recent Thread Closure

Not really. I just enjoy using it a lot more than usual 35 mm style cameras. The waist level finder is much better for composition in my humble opinion.

Taking photographs on medium format...

Re: Recent Thread Closure

The RZ is a big, heavy beast, but it is a real joy to use. *yes

The lens weighs about the same as my OM-D E-M1 with 12 ~ 40 zoom attached. :)

Re: Recent Thread Closure

Yes; the lens is for my RZ67 where a 50 mm optic provides an equivalent focal length of about 23 - 24 millimetres.

The RZ uses bellows focusing rather than a ring on the lens so the elements...

Re: Recent Thread Closure

I see yet another thread has been terminated. What is wrong with this forum? :(

Re: Recent Thread Closure

I don't think any of us here are against 'modern thinking' per se. I am certainly not.

Re: Recent Thread Closure
