Didn't Canon have some sort of semi-tranparent mirror sort of like Sony's? Pellical or something wasn't it called?
I looked into the links you posted about gelatin/silver prints using an internegative process. Do you know of any print shops that perform this service? I gave up printing my own images a few years ago. I got tired of dealing with clogged printheads, etc. I use Costco for most printing, except the fine art prints I do on occasion. I just sent the two images shown above to Costco. You can't beat the longevity of silver based images, though. I just looked at some work I printed more than 45 years ago, still as good as the day they came out of the fixer (but not as good as I could do today).
when recently looking into problems with our iPF8300, I talked to several people in the ‘large format business’, and lack of use was the number one cause of problems.
If I had to put a big sticky label on printers it would be:
** — USE ME REGULARLY — AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK — **
I keep a 24″ roll of cheap proofing paper in our iPF8300 and try and make sure I print every week (a diary reminder helps).
I haven't used a chemical darkroom in 30 yrs, even though I've always had one within steps of my office/labs, but I remember with great fondness my grad school days (actually nights) spent making my own developers. I briefly taught photographic chemistry to the local camera club, but gave up when people's eyes glazed over. Not everyone was meant to be a chemist, sigh. Here are a couple of recent B&W images from a trip to Myanmar last March. They still have that Tri-X look, including the grain.
well when you know what your doing you try to keep your ISO as low as possible.
I would dispute that most people shoot at base ISO.
I personally just need a reliable 50mm.
1.8, 1.4, 1.X? I don't care.. Under $600 ideally, reliable, accurate, decent sharpness and bokeh, I'll buy one the day it's announced..
Don't count on anything happening there, the 6d is unsupported in mainline ML and 6d-TL is only worked on by one person who managed to isolate himself from the rest of the devs. If you want a stable & supported ML anytime soon, definitely don't get a 6d.
Any reason you wouldn't just dump the cr2 once you had the converted DNG?Because alex keeps improving cr2hdr all the time, next up is floating point dng because it allows more resolution from dual_iso output ... but to profit from that, you have to have the original cr2s available.
It is, but dual_iso also has more noise (since it's interlaced with higher iso) and still unsolved wb issues in the acr workflow, plus it needs double the storage - once for the original cr2 to profit from cr2hdr advancements, and once again for the converted dng.
