    "How Front Element Scratches Affect Your Images"

    I've always believed this based on my own experience with some fairly scruffy lenses over the years. From Lens Rentals: How Front Element Scratches Affect Your Images TL;DR? Not much. Mike Johnston of The Online Photographer puts it: Photo News

    Day 2 outtake - just a little too flat as a B&W image.

    Too cold to go out today if I didn't have too. So I looked for a good image indoors. Someone mentioned fuji colors up above. This was done with a Fuji 400H film simulation and I really like how the colors came out, especially the guitar.

    New computer build

    I recently put Linux Mint 21.1 on my laptop. I'd have preferred to put FreeBSD on it but right now, only Linux deals with my Wi-Fi card. Sucks but it's still slightly better than WinDog 11. I can do 99% of what I want to (the biggest problem is Steam and what is/isn't available on Linux. In...

    Your experiences with traveling light?

    On the rare occasions I travel I usually just take the Leica M 240 & one of my 50's. The next time I might simply take only my Super Ikonta.

    Still plan on using it but oh my am I getting bit on the a** by the vignetting of the 7Artisans 50/1.1 - learning to deal with that and finding out if it's inherent or in the hood & etc I'm using will be worth it.

    Returned the Canon 7. They snarked a bit about finding a cheaper repair person but I use this guy for everything. They were good about it once they looked at the test roll though. So I got my money back and invested a small part of it in a bottle of Famous Grouse to drown my sorrows a bit ;)

    Ouch. DAG is saying a full overhaul is what's needed and he's way behind on top of it. 350 is way more than I'm wanting to spend on a Canon 7 :( Looks like talking to the shop about a return is in order for tomorrow.

    Test roll shows some capping and slow shutter speeds. At the price a CLA is not really a problem so I've an email into DAG.

    So instead of getting another lens I really didn't need, I got a nice old camera that I really didn't need... A beautiful Canon 7 for only $85 (!) at a local camera shop/lab. They do all my film processing and scanning and this was on the shelf this morning. With my Canon 50/1.4 & Jupiter 12...

    Sweet! Reminds me of the Zeiss Contessa 35 & Agfa Karat 36 I used to have. The Zeiss was prettier, but the Agfa was a more practical day to day shooter. Just handled better.

    Well, to my weird color vision, the G ones all look significantly better. Don't know if that helps any, but there you go. The grass image is especially noticeable to me.

    I'm in; just have to decide _which_ 50 to hang off the M 240 ;) I was thinking of my Nikkor 50/2, but I could use the excuse to get to know my 7Artisans 50/1.1 better. Yeah, why not? Leica M 240 & 7Artisans 50/1.1 for February.

    Just wish they made an "all in one" that had a transparency head for the scanner. If I could scan negs AND print them semi-economically like these EcoTanks promise, I'd be a happy camper.

    ART = "Another Raw Therapee" a fork of Raw Therapee and I have gone over to it 100% from Capture one. Current version is 1.18.0 and can be found here: agriggio / ART / wiki / Home — Bitbucket Works really well for me but I'm hardly the most sophisticated photo editor here ;)
