Re: Americanetz v Rossii.

I would expect the Fujinon lens to be a really good performer. The Meopar vs. Industar is an interesting comparison. Each is good in its own way.

Re: Why?

Alex - you are roughly where I was about 15 years ago. It was a great place to be, and I urge you to enjoy every moment of it. Photography has given me so much in my life. Mostly, it's been a fun diversion from work and politics. I'm starting to get back into film. Digital is fun, but I find that fi...

Interesting 'developments' at 2019 PhotoPlus Expo

I spent a couple of days at the 2019 PhotoPlus Expo, and what I found interesting was a small increase in the renewed interest in film. Of all of the exhibitors, there were maybe five or six that were showing off film photography products. All of the booths were seeing a significant amount of traffi...
