So where do we go after digital?

  1. Hello everyone,

    I went to my son's school band concert last night, and brought along my D2X with my trusty travel buddy Tamron 18-200....After messing around all day long with lenses and shooting under every kind of condition I find It very relaxing to just carry my camera with a single lens and just blast my SB-800 straight on for killer snapshots of my kids.

    Along comes this fellow who is a pro also, however after futzing around with his digital beasts during the day, he has found another way to relax.

    Meet Allen and check out the rig he got on eBay for $275.00 (Case and plates included)

    thats pretty cool Geno :>)))))

    I will stay digital. I have enough trouble with that.

    Can't go farther in the hole for film tooooo.

    Although, wish I had started in flim 30 years ago. Then maybe I whould know what the hell i'm doing.
  5. It's an old Speed-Graphic 4x5 Range-finder. It's what news photogs used in the 40s. He was shooting in a gym. If you notice I was shooting at 640 ISO f6.1 ..... He was shooting at 100 ISO f22 from the back of the Gym and got totally clear negatives. At 4x5 he could crop down to a single person from a shot of the whole stage and get a totally clear photo. Amazing.


  6. That is what my father used back in the 40's and 50's. He was a freelance photojournalist in that time frame. Thanks for the memory :) 
  7. Brain wave transmission!!

    Yeah, that's what we do after digital. Direct brain wave transmission of the image from the place of its conception to the medium we want to display it.

    The display medium could be paper, the top of a car, the side of a cow, or even the sky.

    I'm working on it right now with my assortment of tin foil hats!

    Nice pictures of that old 20th Century unit, by the way!

  9. Re: Brain wave transmission!!

    If I remember correctly, we had that discussion over at DPR a while ago.

    I agree whole-heartedly. Best medium to display it would of course be a hologram.

    And, if I might add as a musician, I would also like to have a MIDI-port so I may connect my voice chords to a sound module.

    To refer to the original post - I like to fool around with "antique" stuff at times. Hell, even my Ai(s) MF lenses (35/1.4 and 28/2.0) might be called antique by now :lol:

    Hey Geno, that's a nice piece!
    But is it really so heavy, that it takes three men to play it :lol: ?
