Rounded, but not swirly. Good.

Good stuff there, Graham. The sticky buns looked good enough to dive into.

Very interesting, thanks Mike. The bokeh seems to be very smooth. Colour rendition is also good.

Last year, I took it up to New York City, attached to the Sony A7 II. It was a very dreary day and rained most of the time that I was out.a7II_trioplan_01.jpgI'm still pondering putting it back on the work bench and using the Dremel to remove the square corners.a7II_trioplan_02.jpga7II_trioplan_03.jpga7II_trioplan_04.jpga7II_trioplan_05.jpga7II_trioplan_06.jpgWide open, it's sharp in the middle but shows a lot of Tessar-like roundness to the out-of-focus areas. Stopped down, it's reasonably sharp across the frame, once you get to f/8 or f/11. You can see how this lens tends to vignette wide open.a7II_trioplan_07.jpgIt is not a perfect lens, which is what makes it so interesting.

CSC - Compact System Cameras • Fujifilm XE-2s goes to London Town

Sat, 08/17/2019 - 13:09
I am astonished by the dynamic range shown by my Fujifilm XE-2s. This is a snapshot taken through the window of the train I was in while it passed through Blackfriars station at about 40mph. I had the camera on full auto. This is the Jpeg, not the RAW file. The RAW file will be even better.
f6.4 @ 1/160th ISO 400



London Cityscape. f8.0 @ 1/600 ISO 200


The old HMS Belfast is always good for an interesting shot. f8.0@1/750th ISO 200


Fungi at Borough market. If you like mushrooms, this is the place to come! f4.5 @ 1/55th ISO 800


A stonemason doing restoration work at Southwalk Cathedral. f5.6 @ 1/90th ISO 200

Nice job, Mike. How about showing us something a bit more colourful, if you can?

Technical and Site Issues / Spammer Alerts • Enabling the "Like this post" button

Sat, 08/17/2019 - 10:42
By default, this feature isn't enabled. I'm looking into that.

In the meantime, Here's what you must do this:

Go to your "User Profile" and select "Edit Profile" window.


In the next window, uncheck the box at the bottom:


Go to any forum post, and the "like" button (a red heart) will be visible.


Once it's been corrected, I'll mark this post as "solved."

After a long, long, long check into what happened to this feature, I've found that you must do this:

I'm trying to enable it by default. I've also made this as its own post.

BTW, I wonder if the "Like" hearts had to be sacrificed, or they just don't work in Blackfog?

I'll have to pick up a box of dry plates if I ever get the plumbing fixed in here. You are an inspiration for us all, Alex.

That's The Wall Street Journal still using a Flash player.

Let's try a YouTube video.
iframe

Yes, I think that's WSJ.com still relying on Flash. What's going on over there?Cheap new owners.

Already shot half box of this soviet dry plate from 1989.
This one has some artifacts, these dry plates are always unknown the outcome. Shot with Bergheil 9x12 and Heliar.


Ruslan.

This other went pretty well, first time at my home made balcony studio:)
Shot with Tachihara 4x5 and 9x12 Linhof holder, also Heliar.

Lena.

Thank you for looking,
Alex

Thank you, all, your compliments are a reason to try harder and better

PF, this Alpin, I will open a thread, it deserves it and it's going to be a long process.

Mike, thanks a lot, the merit is for the snail who was passing by. I'm thinking seriously about getting that GS-1, after the cameras I'm using is a true point and shoot for me, sadly winter is coming and batteries don't like cold

Back when people still listened to albums and AM and FM radio, stations used to release its lists of top records.

Here's one from 1977 - the year that I graduated from high school.
  • Top album for this week: "Hotel California," by the Eagles
  • Top single: "When I Need You," by Leo Sayer
  • Featured lyrics: "Don't Give Up on Us," by David Soul - star of the hit TV show, "Starsky and Hutch".
The radio station was 13Q, which was 1310 (I think) on the AM dial, as they used to say.

Poznan, PL, spring 2010
St John Nepomuc statue in the old marker (Starym Rinkum)
I had a project in this town at the time, and visited every couple of weeks
The town is great, and the people are amazing! I felt at home every time
