    scanning: underdevelop or overdevelop?

    I have a few rolls of fuji neopan 400 that I haven't developed yet, some that I definately pushed to 1600, but the others I'm not sure about. should I push the questionable rolls or develop them normally? (I'm gonna be scanning..)

    My new full frame Nikon!

    got it for a steal from the 'bay, couldn't resist it. the frame counter appears to be stuck, but everything else is good. I like the lcd readout in the viewfinder and that I dont have to pull the advance lever out to activate it (how my old fm worked). I think I might take a break from digital...

    Weird iPhone camera phenomenon?

    I noticed something weird with my iphone's camera, if I shake it a little while taking a picture in bright light, instead of being blurry it distorts straight lines in a wave like manner. anyone else notice this or can anyone explain why or how this happens?

    Showcase Nikon 50mm f/1.4 G AF-S

    Funny how not too long ago, everyone was saying things like "50mm is too long on a DX body" and "not wide enough to use indoors", but now this lens comes out and everyone seems to love it! I have always liked the 50mm focal lenght, even on my D200. although it may feel too long at times, I...

    Should I get the Nikon 16-85mm?

    I currently do not own any zoom lenses, and was eventually planning on getting the 17-55 2.8. I only have a 30 and a 50 right now, and would mostly use this at 16mm, often wide open. I do not think I would use anything wider than this very often. I've now decided against the 17 because of its...

    Lakota Wolf Center, Columbia NJ

    Very nice! I've been to columbia before, but I never knew about the Lakota wolf center. Did you walk across the footbridge over the Delaware? Or is that a different columbia than the one Im thinking of?

    Who says 25,600 ISO can't look good!

    Wow., if I had one of those cameras, I would probably never shoot below 1600.

    Off topic - thoughts on seeing a chiropractor for bad back?

    Ive thought about going to a chiropractor in the past, decided against it, and bought one of those spineworx things. (http://www.spineworx.net/) it in no way performs miracles, but does give me a small amount of temporary relief, and i only had to buy it once. not a huge loss if it doesnt help...

    Sample variation of Nikkor AF 50mm f/1.4D?

    dont know about sample variation, but it might be hard to sell once the new version comes out, try getting afew sample photos from it wide open first. I loved mine while i still had it, and although i regret selling it, the sigma 30 will hold me over until the new one comes out.

    EVERYONE has a dslr now

    Here's a solution: only sell "Professional" cameras to people after a portfolio review:biggrin: Didn't Nikon originally only sell black rangefinders to professional photojournalists, or is that just a myth?

    Fuji Neopan 1600! Finally, got some prints from the lab.

    Nice! were these from a mail-in lab or local? after I discovered neopan, i rarely shoot with anything else. I havent tried the 1600 in a while, recently I've just been pushing neopan 400 to 1600.

    Street photographers @ the D700

    Although i generally prefer smaller 35mm cameras for street photography, but mostly because of their lighter weight. I do frequently use a d200 for street photos, though. Sometimes i think that even though it might draw more attention, it doesnt make much of a difference, except for people...

    D200 Focus Problems

    I had a similar problem with mine, it was just dust on the af sensors. if you have a rocket blower, turn on the mirror up mode and shoot some air towards the bottom of the box. I ended up not having to send mine out.

    FYI: NEW Nikon 50 / 1.4

    but a FX is larger than a DX, DX only crops not crops and enlarges. If youre talking about enlargements, larger format prints can be printed at larger sizes than smaller formats..

    d200 high iso samples lets see them

    I like noise, and I think it should be embraced, not reduced. iso1250 100% 1600: 100% Nice phots btw, the second one is perfect! Its shots like that one that make me miss my 50.. I should try using 640 more often..

    FYI: NEW Nikon 50 / 1.4

    I wouldnt use it on a 50, but just glad to see that its there, and will be when they do get around to the wider primes.. In bright light shooting street scenes i prefer using hyperfocal distance over autofocus. (sometimes) But why would the dof be different on a dx body? all the smaller sensor...

    Leica M8, anyone?

    how it works: to focus you look through a viewfinder with parallax corrected framelines with a spot in the center that shows a double image when out of focus, when you focus the lens, the double image comes together. (no depth of field preview, but the lenses still have a dof scale!) there are...

    a few: (high iso) Ive always like the way this lens renders, I cant wait to buy the new one! Not as smooth as the Noct or the Cream Machine, but nice. The "Rounded 9-blade diaphragm" should help with out of focus highlights at the in-between apertures, so it will be at least a bit nicer in...
