Hmmm, I'm very interested in this but I can't see any information about whether this is gonna support full frame or if it'll be for crop bodies.
yesterday at 20:00
Very similar to the Laowa 12mm Zero-D, but a lot cheaper, it seems...

hmmm...ok..but i dont have a "darkroom", just a small room with no window called a toilet and it's required only to load the film in my paterson tank, after that i do all the rest in daylight...apart from the easy loading part of this box, what is the difference with the process we all know...? (im not trolling, im seriously asking cause maybe i've missed something)

"Developing your own 35mm or 120 film at home almost always requires a darkroom" is just plain wrong. you need darkroom to make prints, not to develop film
yesterday at 19:35
Came here to comment on the totally wrong fact that you require a darkroom to develop film but I see plenty more colleagues made the point already. 😬

Ugh. Why would they make the 24-70 not an internal zoom? But that 14 1.8 full frame glass..... drool..... 135 1.8 is gonna be a Canon killer too I hope.
yesterday at 16:57
When will they release pricing information? I need that 135, like, yesterday.
yesterday at 19:37
Bought the Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 last year for astroscapes, and that's considered a real good lens, but suffers a bit of coma in the corners, so will wait to see how this compares (I suspect the Sigma will surpass it, as they produce monster glass consistently).

Fluid Head > Ball Head
Why Photographers Should Consider a Fluid Head for Their Tripod
149 likes - 9 comments

I've been using a fluid head for years, and trying to discreetly hide it from other photographers, so they don't thing I'm crazy for using the 'wrong' kind of tripod head.
Note: They can be 'slower' to operate than a ballhead.
02/20/2017 at 23:24
Looks cool, but that head alone weighs 2/3 of what my entire benro tripod+ballhead weighs. And it is much more bulky.
Most of my shots involve long hike/walk distances and my glass is heavy enough. I need less weight, not more.
Reza Jalil Pour
02/20/2017 at 22:20
Totally agree... But they're (generally speaking) more expensive than ball heads.

02/20/2017 at 21:15
Color grading? Doesn't that mean desaturate it and make it blue?
02/20/2017 at 20:42
By definition, luminosity does NOT adjust color. It's the "L" in "HSL". "H" and "S" need other tools.

only reason i get excited for new lens announcements is bc the old ones will drop in price by a fraction lol *cries*
02/20/2017 at 17:47
The 24-70 looks good, but WHY would someone buy a 135? It's a focal length covered by 70-200 lenses. I use an 85 f/1.2, will a 135 do something the 85 or 200mm won't?

After many years as a commercial photographer I find that studio photographers tend to fall into two camps - those that are proud of their photos, and those that are proud of their sets. Of the latter group, I feel that they make things more difficult for themselves so they can tell everyone how hard it was to shoot. To me the end result is no different, but one shoot took an hour and another took a week. I don't get it.

That's kind of the way all sets are built. You can pay someone else if you're too busy shooting, or do it yourself. Because if you're spending 3 months to create one image, then clearly you're a hobbyist, and not shooting for a living.

Like if leica is the only one who's supposed to make rangefinders. Surely iconic, but you can't say that a BMW is a Ferrari clone just because it shares the RWD.
02/18/2017 at 18:04
Not a leica fanboy here in fact i dont even own one, the fujis dont even come close to using a real rf camera when it comes to responsiveness, focusing and the whole experience of it. It's a totally different tool.
02/18/2017 at 18:08
When it comes to digital there's virtually no difference in image quality made under under similar conditions. If you can afford a Leica, go for it, the design is more pleasing, however Fuji X series make equally exquisite images and you'll save money. Really comes down to the person who's connected to the imaging device.

I like to highlight the 3 images, right click, and choose "Merge to HDR" in lightroom. Not as much manual control, but doesn't take 17 minutes either, plus it's all done in 1 app.

“To convert a camera to monochrome, we take the camera apart, remove the sensor, remove the sensor coverglass which is epoxied to the ceramic package then use special equipment to remove about 5 microns from the surface of the sensor removing the microlenses and the Color Filter Array...”
"...Just kidding. Actually, what we really do is select B&W from the film emulation menu then bust the switch off with a pair of pliers.They're free range artisanal pliers, mind." ;-)

I find it strange that no other camera manufactureres makes monochrome cameras. I for one would be interested, but there is no way I would pay the amount Leica asks. Well, Tir-X works for me anyway.
02/17/2017 at 23:32
WTF?! Who's going to pay that much money to have their Fuji X Camera's sensor molested and raped of its color pixels? Not me.
A) Fuji are known for their great colors
B) Fuji also make great monochrome images as well as is.
Whoever does this or buys into this is out of their minds and have too much money to burn.

Probably has more to do with the photographer and what they prefer than anything else. I love my mkIII but vast majority of the cameras listed are very capable tools.

A lot of the older lenses are junk, but the mid-high telephoto lenses are often pin sharp. They might not have all the bells and whistles such as a built in focus motor or stabilization, but they're workhorse lenses that can often outside newer lenses in image quality (especially the cheaper modern ones).
02/15/2017 at 23:55
I got a vivitar 80-210 macro at a flea market for about $20 back when I still had sticker shock from my DSLR. I looked it up and found out it's specific version number was a gem. There were preceding and following productions of it that weren't so great but I lucked out.
02/15/2017 at 20:52
Hey these lens are great for having fun and experimenting with, but I'd never use them on a job. People see these articles and say hey I'm going to put this on my 5d, never a good choice. On mirrorless with an adapter there fine but again I cringe when someone wants to put these on the a7r II because Sony glass is two expensive. Don't buy a camera where you can't afford the glass. The glass is you better investment. Buy that first then the fancy camera.

The #followme trend needs to die, it's so overdone.
I saw a girl "dragging" her boyfriend all over Yellowstone doing that. Every 20 another follow me shot. Put them all together and it would probably be a weird stop motion video through the park. The best was when she did it at the edge of an overlook, so it was a "#followme... Over the edge of this cliff." picture.

Thanks for sharing, Benoit. Advertising, corporate, portrait and wedding rates are as high and higher than ever, if you develop your skill set to compete at that level. And 'general photography' rates are as low as they ever were if you don't. The choice is yours to make. Everybody cannot be 'the best', but you can. If you do the work.

Well done Beloit, I didn't realize Kodakit was only paying out $250. That's about what I pay my assistant on the shoot so how can one make any money with fees like that? Is Kodak that far out of the loop? Considering Kodak has a $100,000 Italian espresso maker at their Maine office I think they can pay photographers more than $250.
02/15/2017 at 17:26
I'm afraid this kind of thing is becoming more and more common in the photography industry. What they effectively are doing, whether intentionally or not, is reducing a photography service to what is in effect minimum wage while no doubt being at their beck and call. In my experience, these types of setups have a high turnover of photographers because of the low pay and the less than favourable working conditions.
