Re: Recent Thread Closure

I for one would be very happy to see political subjects barred from the forum (not that I am disinterested - I am passionate about politics). Political discussions on the forum create more heat than...

EM5 MkII body, black, in "as new" condition - 1663 shutter actuations. I have had this as a second body - it is absolutely complete in its box, with documentation, flash, strap, eye cup, flash shoe...

Re: Building a Diptych

Steve

It is the many hours spent in the darkroom (with all its attendant drawbacks) that makes so many of us older photographers prefer digital (by a huge margin!).

Reflecting what Paul (pdk42)...

Re: Broken Leica DG 8-18mm

There is a thread on Mu-43.com started by Ctein - it seems that dissatisfaction with Panasonic is not confined to the UK or the 8-18. I am not sure how to link it, but the thread is called “Panasonic...

Re: Holy Idland

It was equally horrible when we went there at Easter 1993! Have you been to Lindisfarne Castle - well worth a visit.

Re: Broken Leica DG 8-18mm

I read with interest the recent Lens Rentals group test of M4/3 lenses in the 42.5-45 mm range, and then went back to their earlier group test of 25 mm lenses. In both cases the lenses with the...

Re: Rokinon 7.5mm f/3.5/ Samyang 7.5mm

The Imadio plugins for Photoshop are good (formerly known as Fisheye Hemi). They do not lose as much corner info as some other methods, and although they leave some straight lines curved, this can be...

Re: Is this Flash unit safe

This will not protect the camera if the trigger voltage is too high - just fry it via a different route.

Re: Frozen Stratford

I have never considered the idea of an IBIS artifact until I read Paul's post, but I wonder if it might explain some things I have noticed with my PL 8-18, which is normally sharp, but occasionally...

I hope you meant waist turret (although having read of the likelihood of survival in one of them, perhaps you were right)!

Somewhere in the shed I still have a device I bought years ago to help balance two of them - the idea of trying to balance three is quite horrifying.

Re: Social media and mental health

I was very tempted to buy a T shirt I saw for sale on a street stall in Venice recently: it said “F**k facebook - I’ve got real friends”.

Re: Film / Slide Copying Rig

Slide copiers are pretty poor because of the built in lens, which is rarely better than a doublet and usually worse. I have used a slide copier minus its lens and attached to the filter thread of a...

Re: Recognise them?

Reminds me of this lot - a sculpture by Zourab Tsereteli outside the cathedral at Condom in SW France. Although it is a pretty little town, for reasons I can only guess at, Condom is not twinned with...

Re: Camera scanned with EM5

I do not regard it as a strange hobby, rather one after my own heart. I photographed a large Jacobean mansion in Kent in the late 1970s (on 5" x 4" film) and produced two albums for the owners just...
