Re: Thinking ahead

I really like the APS-C format as I don't see myself printing photos larger than 13x19 (current printer does 11x14, but not with much detail). PF It's not the format that dictates the print size, but the resolution of the sensor. The Fujifilm 16mp sensor in the XE2s will give you 4896 x 3264 px whi...

Re: SLR MF camera to begin

You could get a 645 folder like the Zenobia, Alex, a Japanese copy of the Zeiss Ikonta A (Ikomat 1) with a nicer finder. Easy to do portraiture with, and small enough to fit a jacket pocket. PF I've been tempted by 645 folders, but I've hesitated because I've been unable to find a reliable source o...

Re: CoronaVirus Pandemonium

Durability depends on the material, print technique, layer height, infill, etc etc etc for the grip (this one https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:597022) the stress is minimal and can be printerd in PLA or ABS at about 0.2mm with 5 perimeters or more and should be fine What a project! Did it work? I ...

That's a wonderful family portrait, Santiago. I wish we could all get outdoors for a hike.

There are metering apps for phones that aren't bad. Not as accurate as a handheld meter, but still pretty decent for general use.
I think I'll just reserve the Ektar for my metered cameras.

Re: Thinking ahead

I really like the APS-C format as I don't see myself printing photos larger than 13x19 (current printer does 11x14, but not with much detail). So the X100V and X-T4 would be a perfect pairing. It's the switching lens mounts that has me hung up. I'll probably wind up with a Z50 with the FTZ adapter i...

What a project! Did it work? I am concerned about the durability of 3d-printed plastic parts that have to bear some stress.
I've got a printed grip for my CL that feels good and sturdy. But it does make one wonder when viewing the layers that run through all the stress points.
