I love fixed lenses tbh and spent so much time with just a Rokinon 8mm it's embarrassing

Even tho it still rocks I want to replace my Nikon D600 at some point. I have only 3 lenses at this point so I could sell them and switch to Fuji but I just don't know!

who's done flatbed med-format scanning? I have an epson perfection v600 or whatever that yielded horrendous results with 35mm but have heard good things for 120.

Thinking about playing around with my dad’s Pentax K1000 But all the lenses are a little worse for wear. They seem cheap though

It's better with 120

The 35 isn't worth the effort

I adore this camera. play around with it for sure. lenses should be fine unless they are scratched/fungused to oblivion.

anyone have good experience with a send-away 35mm scanning service? specifically at a reasonable price-point for selects from cut color negatives, not whole rolls

found this vintage camera from 1966 for $15 bucks
Image
just wanted to mess around with it for the weekend to see what it could do, but when i was buying film i was telling the guy about it and we started checking out the mechanics of it and it turns out the aperture sticks 50% of the time and i would need a new lens. :/ he had a 125 lens that looked pretty nice for $30 bucks, but i decided not to get it cause it was supposed to be a fun find not a fucking investment.

what should i do with it? should i resell it online as is? bite the big one and spend the extra 30 plus film plus development? use it as a kinda cool vintage decor item?

The most fun in film photography is processing; you can probably get a decent cheap enlarger somewhere

So I've fucked around and bought a used X-Pro2 as well as the 23mm 1.4 prime and the 10-24mm zoom lenses

While I'm burning money, what are some good resources for all the best/essential accessories for that setup? I'm thinking of getting a decent ND filter with a step-up filter to use across the lenses, as well as probably a strap of some kind and something to put it all in

i really like this peak design bag for my xt2, a few lenses, sd cards, and other little essentials. it's a nice balance, and even fully loaded it's totally fine lugging around for a day of shooting (+ it's nice you can throw it on your hips if you want) https://www.peakdesign.com/collections/ ... ay-sling-5 i have the peak strap as well, and it's... fine? I like my thin leather strap that I got for my x100s a few years ago much more.

So I sprang for a tamron 17-50 for apsc, paired with a viltrox x0.71 speed booster for my G7. Really liking the combination so far, not seeing a downside to the viltrox over the much more expensive metabones.

Given the alternatives this really seems like the best and cheapest route to a fast 24-70 equivalent for micro 4/3. Not as fast as those sigma art lenses but still equivalent to f2 with the speedbooster. Autofocus is supposedly twitchy with the adapter ring but i don't use AF much in my still photography, and not at all for video. AF isn't great on this generation of lumix cameras even with their best native lenses.

Anyway I think this combo makes a lot of sense if you're in m4/3 and looking for bargain glass, would recommend.

I will stan for that Tamron til I'm in the ground.

Think I'm gonna try and sell off my x100f in the next few months and move to an xpro2 or 3 depending on what the latter looks like later this month. Seems kind of silly right now but I'm a sucker for nostalgic design and the rangefinder form factor is > the squarish xt2/3 for me.

I just want a sharp modern wide zoom, the xf80mm for nature shit, and the freedom to fuck around with vintage primes for portraiture.

that xpro3 design is kind of wild. think i'll sell my xt2, don't really love the form factor either. so if prices drop on the pro2, might get that, but not sure yet. x-e3 seems pretty great too.

Yeah the screen thing is something that intuitively appeals to me but not sure it wouldn't prove a huge pain in practice. I don't think it's fully articulated so in-camera editing seems like it could be tough and that'd be a major drawback.

Also the Q button placement seems questionable but it's the same on the xpro2 I think and I haven't seen any gripes iirc.

I have found a soft release button to be an essential little accessory for my Fuji cameras. Sadly they are easy to lose, but at least they're cheap.
