Lenses / Re: How many radioactive lenses do you own?
« on: February 04, 2014, 09:08:18 AM »
Super Tak 50mm, but technically isn’t everything on earth somewhat radioactive?

It’s a cool lens if you have never used one. Super sharp and gives a great warmth/glow to everything.

Looks cool. Looks expensive, but cool.

Can someone explain the "terrific" ISO performance?

Agree. I still have my old 50D, I thought anything past ISO 100 was just crap.

I have a Vello brand for my 50D, and have been meaning to order one for my 5D for awhile now.

The quality on it is top notch, in my opinion no difference from the Canon branded one.

Really depends on your printing needs, I use a pixma pro 100, which is a great printer for a reasonable price. If you do a lot of B&W get the 10 or 1 series though. I mostly print 4x6 and 5x7 of the kids for family members, so it doesn't really make sense for me to go online and order one 5x7 print.

I think I'll wait for the Chinese to clone it for $1500/$750.

From the looks of the device there doesn't seem to be any reason it shouldn't cost a more then a 200 for a clone.

Not a Canon, but my Fuji GW690ii

I have a CanoScan 9000F Mark II, it can be had new for 200. It's a flatbed with a film holder. It can do both 35 and 120. It's not going to beat a dedicated drum scanner, but for the price I'm very happy with it.

This may not be popular to say but the new SL1 will definitely get my attention once:

1.) the price drops significantly AND
2.) if Canon releases a couple more pancakes (20'ish mm & a 30'ish mm) at a reasonable price. 

Totally with you on that. Aside from professional gigs I love taking my 5DIII and 40mm out to social occasions because it feels like a compact to me.  However, the SL1 with a series of pancakes as you mentioned above would be bliss for such occasions.

Agree, a wide pancake on this could make for a nice street setup. Would be nice to see a EF-S pancake unless they are going to make a really wide EF one.

If you have a Mac, Blackmagic makes a thunderbolt hdmi capture interface.

I have a Mamiya 645 pro that I use sometimes, I don't really care for it to much. I also have a Fuji 6X9 which is awesome to shoot with, the lens is insanely sharp and the negative are huge for awesome amounts of detail.

Even as a lifelong Mac user (Started with a Apple II) I would say go with a custom built PC. My next computer will be. You will get far more bang for your buck, and as of late Macs have been crap. OS 10.8.2 is the buggiest piece of crap and I wish I never installed it. I will miss the unix aspects of OS X though.

My next bigger expense is likely to be a medium format camera and some darkroom gear for my basement. As much as I like my DSLR and wouldn't want to miss it again, for some things I feel those blown up large and medium format portraits still look better. And it's not the hipster-grainy-lo-fi look I'm after but quite the opposite actually.

Craigslist is a great place for dark room equipment, most people are practically giving it away. I got a entire setup with a color enlarger for 50 bucks.

If it is much smaller than a Rebel then how will you hold it?

Agree, I don't have huge hands, just a average guy and even with a grip on my 5D I wish I had more to hold onto.
