Re: GTech vacuum cleaners

We used to have a Vorwerk vacuum cleaner back in the day - expensive, but very efficient and it lasted years and years.

One of my engineer friends likes telling the story of how they had a Vorwerk...

Re: Anyone into Cyanotypes ?

A friend of mine did some a few years ago, and heís also had a go with tintypes I think.

Just a word on safety of the cyanotype process - as long as youíre reasonably careful toxicity I donít...

Re: GTech vacuum cleaners

We’ve had a Bosch Athlet upright cordless for a couple of years and, within limits, it does a decent job especially for some types of use.

It’s light and manoeuvrable so really good for small...

Re: ISO 3200 from Kodak

BTW for anyone interested even just for historical reasons in film, I do recommend The Kodakery, an awkwardly named podcast from what is left of Kodak in the USA.

Re: Thom Hogan slams Olympus M 4/3

Yeah, well, that is a relic.

More recently, just as a single example the 5D mk3 dates back to 2012, which is the same year as the original E-M5:

Re: Thom Hogan slams Olympus M 4/3

Between DSLR and mirrorless, really. Pro level DSLRs hold their value much better than mirrorless cameras these days, and it's just a reflection of whichever market happens to be undergoing the...

Re: Thom Hogan slams Olympus M 4/3

I can’t speak authoritatively for the US prices, Ian, but to be fair to old Hogey the M1ii was around £1850 on the street in the U.K. from mid-2017 until the beginning of 2018. That must equate to...

Re: Thom Hogan slams Olympus M 4/3

Yes, mis-perceptions die hard, that is true.

Re: Thom Hogan slams Olympus M 4/3

Re: Baobab Highway

Love the image.
personally I'd have removed that bright post-thingy in the middle of the foreground since I find it a bit distracting, but it's a great shot any way!

Re: m4/3 lenses for IR

Yes, I'll post a few when I feel I've got my processing sorted. I have liked the monochrome IR effects for many years, and it's particularly good when you want to shoot in the countryside in...

m4/3 lenses for IR

Dear all,

I've had my E-M10ii converted to full spectrum by Protech (speedy and nice to deal with, BTW) and I'm having great fun playing around, initially with a Hoya 720nm filter.
