    Film Does it matter where BW is developed?

    There is no such thing. There's 'better' films than others, but they cost more. A Ferrari might be 'better' than a Kia, but if you can't afford a Ferrari, then it doesn't matter how good it is.

    Film Does it matter where BW is developed?

    If you want cookie-cutter developing, then drop it off anywhere. The 'pro place' will probably replace exhausted chemicals when they should be while the low-price leaders may not. But given there's a near infinite different ways to actually develop b&w film, you'll get far better results if...

    Film New Toy(o)

    Stumbled across a darned-near-new Toyo 4x5 today. Mint condition. No film holders of lenses, but I have enough of those. But included a focus cloth, rail extension, bag bellows and 2 flat lensboards and 1 recessed lensboard. Plus a hard fitted case.

    Pairing up video & audio tracks, but Win8.1 won't cooperate

    After spending most of the afternoon yesterday taking both audio & video tracks (some video files did not have a separate audio track created), I did a test run of RichCopy this morning to see how well it performs. It works perfectly. Once I get all the files transferred to my hard drive, I...

    Pairing up video & audio tracks, but Win8.1 won't cooperate

    You're trying to get me to understand synching two audio tracks in editing software. I understand perfectly how to synch two audio files. But that's not what I'm needing to do. I'm trying transfer a video file from the camera, created on May 5th at 2:12 PM as well as an audio file from a...

    Pairing up video & audio tracks, but Win8.1 won't cooperate

    Feel free to let me know how Premiere Elements 14 can restore the original Create Date of the files. Here is the issue: All of these files were not originally created on May 7. I made them on May 5th, over the course of 6 hours. It's difficult to match up the audio with the video when I...

    Pairing up video & audio tracks, but Win8.1 won't cooperate

    This IS NOT an issue in editing process! This is an issue caused during FILE TRANSFER! Both the camera and audio recorder are set to the same date & time. But when I transfer them to the computer............. WIN 8.1 CHANGES THE 'CREATE DATE' I was hoping to synch the two devices and use...

    Pairing up video & audio tracks, but Win8.1 won't cooperate

    It's not the editing software..... it's Win 8.1. When I transfer files from the camera to the hard drive on the computer, Win 8.1 ignores the date created for the files by the camera and replaces it with a create date of when I transfer the file.

    Pairing up video & audio tracks, but Win8.1 won't cooperate

    So I'm getting into recording more and more video, and using a lav mic to remotely record the audio, and lately I've been trying to set the date/time on both my camera & voice recorder so I can more easily pair them up in post. However, when I transfer the video files to the computer, Win 8.1...

    Film My Second 'Real' Camera is Now My Latest Acquisition

    I started out taking photos with a Pentax K1000, and after a couple years had saved up enough money to buy my dream camera.... A Pentax MESuper. If I had a nickle for every frame of Kodachrome 25 I took with that camera, I'd be able to buy my own country. Today, while in the local...

    When this occurs, I go back and copy my entire post into my clipboard. I then delete the second half of it and post what's left. Then I 'reply' to my own post, pasting the entire post into the response, then delete what I included in the first post.

    Sauntered into the local Toy Store today and walked out with these: The K1000 suffers from the usual Dead Meter Syndrome, but the ones I've come across I've been able to effect a simple repair. Otherwise, everything is in near-mint codition (the 200mm looks totally unused!) Forty clams for...

    Film Getting back to my roots

    When I was about 15 and started pushing a shutter button just for fun, I saved up enough allowance to buy a brand-spankin' new Pentax K1000 with a 50mm 1.7 lens. Soon after, the disease spread and I upped to an MX. I then paired that with an ME Super and had an entire suite of lenses, from the...

    Last Batches of Summer Ice Cream

    A local dairy produces a real nice (albeit expensive) ice cream mix that just can't be beat. I had resigned myself to not seeing any until next summer as they don't usually produce it after early September. But, to my astonishment, there were 4 containers in the cooler at the grocery store...

    Film What film do people have 'in progress' ?

    Mostly my Shen Hao. I've gathering them up because I have N-2, N-1, N-, N+1 and N+2. Not much fun going out with a field camera when it's 10°F out, so I spend the winter nights souping and printing. This way I don't have to worry about chemicals going bad.

    Film What film do people have 'in progress' ?

    I've got about 60 sheets of 4x5 film sitting in the darkroom. Once winter sets in and spending time in the darkroom is warmer than lounging around outside, I'll start developing it as there's everything from N-2 to N+2 there.
