I just bought a 358, it's a great! I've learned a lot about light in the short time I've had it. I think in the multiple light/studio space they are still used often.

Software & Accessories / Best film scanner under $200
« on: April 29, 2012, 10:48:56 AM »
Anyone have any good results with a sub $200 film scanner? Need to scan both 35 & 120. I tried it with my cheapo all in one scanner printer fax, and inverted the colors, didn't work so well.

Thanks!

Must have misread, I thought I saw a part about no weather sealing. Need more coffee.........

and it has wifi...

I like the wifi option, MSRP on the thing is $60, way better then Canons $600 file transmitter thing.

@ thepancakeman

Excellent thought. Anyone can develop some film, scan the negatives and fiddle with some sliders in Lightroom. How many people have really solid dark room skills? Probably not many.

I enjoy simply the shooting aspect of using film, forces me to slow down and think of my composition, instead of holding down the shutter button and blasting off a hundred frames and dealing with them later.

I also enjoy collecting and using a variety of old cameras. Mostly rangefinders, lately I’ve been into 35mm half frame cameras. I’ve been getting the third degree from my wife about my ebay habbits…….

No weather sealing, which is very important to some people. But for a more casual shooter, or someone who is just a hobbyist, there are some really great third party lenses.

Congrats. I recently bought a Mamiya 645. My chemicals came in the mail yesterday, I was going to try to develop some stuff this weekend.

Great thread. Just goes to show that while the latest and greatest gear is fun, it doesn't always a good photo make…..

EOS Bodies / Re: The Last Generation of the Crop Sensor Cameras

I agree with smirkypants. I don't know when, but I think eventually everything will be full frame. Or maybe even some new dimension.

How large would a camera phone be with a FF sensor??  Somehow, I don't think this is the case, tiny cameras are in demand.

Should have clarified, stand alone camera, not cell phone etc.

Who knows, maybe in the distant future we will  have some entirely new technology that we don't even comprehend today that allows cell phones (or whatever replaces them in the future) to take photos on par with modern SLRs.

Lenses / Re: Canon 70-200 f2.8 II or Sigma's 70-200mm f2.8?
« on: April 23, 2012, 06:43:13 PM »
I've never used the Sigma, generally I find they make good lenses for the money. I do have the Canon, and it is hands down one of the best lenses on any system ever. Worth every penny.

Nope. Both Canon and Nikon and can take great pictures, Nikon might get better results under lab conditions, but in my case, (and probably a lot of other peoples) the quality is ultimatley limited by the user. While I'm not the worlds worst photographer, I'm also not the next Ansel Adams. I probably wouldn't notice a difference if my end results with either one.

Many years ago when I bought my first film SLR (Elan IIe) Iwent to the store, tried both the Canon and the Nikon, and like the wau the Canon felt in my hands, the button placement etc, and have beeb with Canon ever since.

Its no different then Ford vs. Chevy. Some people will only drive one or the other untill the day they die, while others just need a truck and will drive what ever they happen to like better when they buy one.

I did like the side entry part of the fastpack. The Paralax is odd, in the fact that you upen it from the back side. Keeps everything secure though.
