Re: Thinking ahead

Thanks, Alex and Graham. I'm still trying to figure out how to change the metering and focusing modes, Graham, as those seem to have been buried in the menu while they were buttons on the D300s. Once I find them I'll have to program a couple of function buttons for quick settings.

Re: Summer trip 2020

I've enjoyed seeing these on Flickr as you've posted them, Alex, and am glad at least someone is getting out to take photos of interesting places.

Re: Thinking ahead

UPDATE: I got to thinking again about how I would figure out which way to go in digital imaging. One thing I had not considered before was using the camera as a scanner, which is much better done with a full frame model. Since I have a bunch of D series Nikkors that use the screw drive AF, I started...

Re: Filters for B&W?

My favorite filter is the Orange. Not as intense of an effect as with the red, but definitely stronger than with a yellow, and more natural looking in my opinion. But lately I haven't been using filters since it means I have to either calculate in my head what the factor is, or use a meter to scan t...

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 ...
