    Film Lab for IOS or Android

    Hi Legine Just to be clear, I am not the creator of this software , only a Kickstarter supporter....as I thought this was a very good idea on many levels and would be interesting as far as my desire to continue to shoot film ....but have an easy way to digitize images for sharing or preview. I...

    Film Lab for IOS or Android

    David Thanks for your response. It does not appear that even the film shooters on this website have any use or interest in quick and accurate film to digital image conversions using their smartphone with an app. I have a number of film cameras and this makes sense to me, even more than...

    Film Lab for IOS or Android

    A while back I posted a thread regarding a Kickstarter program from someone developing an app for iOS and Android to use phone for converting film negatives to digital positives......almost automatically, by focussing , detecting frame lines, reproducing with accurate color etc. I thought I...

    Leica Cheap Chinese-made M-mount 50mm f1.1 "Sonnar" Lens

    Sonnetar also modern coating all surfaces......and queer coma/focus adjustment that can prove handy as yo change cameras. Focus and aperture controls can be frustrating if not familiar.

    Leica Film Lab for IOS or Android

    I was rather hoping that someone on this forum might be attracted to this method of generating digital images from their film stock using the phone camera scheme....and comment. Abe has put a lot of work into making this functional under Ios and Android as well as making it automatic or almost...

    Leica Value of M-series Lenses

    I agree with above. Also, not everyone has the time or temperament to sell individual pieces or collections on internet forum boards or ebay. I have had a lot of success selling through OC Camera. the price paid was worth it to me at the time.....time spent researching and putting in order...

    Leica Older Leica M Film Cameras

    I already made the investment in a Sonnetar.....which is quite quirky but fun. A Voigtlander 50 1.5 is an extremely good lens for the price. It's bigger than a J8 and a Sonnetar....but it is a go to lens.

    Leica Film Lab for IOS or Android

    HI Carl I wish I could say...very well. I am swamped with work and with wife gone for a while, taking care of house and pets. I practice around the house and garden to be "right" with the unit. Soon though I will gete out.

    I did not buy it at initial retail. Substantially discounted. It's quite nice. Image quality no different. In fact hblad engineers altered the firmware some how so it could not be upgraded by Sony.

    Leica Jupiter-8 M39 mount adjusted for Leica - Pics

    I have no developed skill for shimming or refffiting elements In new mounts. The Sonnetar on my camera has a comaadjustment....but it changesfocal length and LV on a 240 easily shows how focus affected. A slightly inconvenient but very effective way to adjust a sonnar on the fly. Of course...

    Leica Jupiter-8 M39 mount adjusted for Leica - Pics

    Yes...I have fiddled with your practice of manually underexposing by about 1/2 stop compared to the in RF exposure indicator. Seems like it would be easier to just set the EV to about -.3. It's a nice feature to use LV and review the DOF and exposure before pressing completely. From what I...

    Leica Sony A9 .... WOW!

    Since cameras are now basically computers and linked electronics modules.....Sony definitely has an edge. I was surprised to find out Leica has custom CMOS from Belgium.....that has to increase cost, but it makes sense if you are selling a boutique item and everything tweaked to max. Sony...

    Leica Sony A9 .... WOW!

    As long as the AF tracking is good, it should be a pro level sports/action camera. I did see that AI feeler left off the 7500 although as a camera it's probably very good. However, given their announcements, corner cutting is inevitable and I'm not sure throwing out the backwards...

    Leica The other Noct

    We certainly do hope there is not digital rot....or worse....no backwards compatibility. Even in the medical imaging business where there are reputedly standards to last (DICOM), there are many variations, versions, and deviations causing migration to newer platforms a potential crisis.
