    Film Mamiya M645 1000s

    Yes, that is exactly what I said: the NOMINAL size is 60x90, however the ACTUAL size (as you point out) is ~56x~84mm, depending, of course, on the camera. The actual image dimensions will vary from model to model. You may wish to check a dictionary, a Fowler's or similar usage guide to...

    Film Mamiya M645 1000s

    This doesn't make any sense. "Crop factor" is generally used to refer to the ratio of sensors smaller than the nominal "full frame" (24x36mm) to the nominal "full frame" In the case of a 6x9 camera, the nominal size is 60x90mm, which means that in terms of area of sensitive material, it is a...

    Film Post Processing Film Scans

    that's interesting, how are you doing that? if you are using transparency film are you comparing the colours you see on a lightbox with what you see on the screen? if you are using negative film, are you having them yet printed first and then comparing the prints to the screen? obviously you...

    You might want to have a look at my post here https://www.foreverfilm.org/threads/38/ As for the "ethics" ... well, there aren't any rules are there? It's just taking pictures. The only peculiarity arises because with scanned film, we have a digitised version of something that was not intended...

    Film Suggestions on B&W Film to Purchase

    No apologies for sounding harsh here, but this is simply RUBBISH. The ISO speed of a film bears absolutely NO relation to the delicacy of the emulsion layers. This is the kind of nonsense that gets propagated and confuses beginners. Some older styles of film (e.g. those from the - now closed...

    More Flickr totalitarianism

    For goodness sake Ray don't be so literal minded. It's perfectly obvious how I am using the phrase and why. It really does seem that any attempt on this forum to discuss anything other than lenses or, menu systems, or to offer the phrase "great capture" is doomed to crash into a wall of...

    More Flickr totalitarianism

    What's interesting is that the financial success of this model of monetising has shifted the ground of the argument so far to the capitalistic libertarian position. Thus anyone who suggests the model is flawed or unethical or believes end users should consider themselves as other than passive...

    You're not telling me anything I didn't know already Bill, or indeed anything I haven't already talked about, here and elsewhere. However this is a "new level" of interference which is not just about how the photos are presented visually, but how they are presented verbally. It's a camel's...

    Exactly. You were able to add a tag to my photo because I permit that from some of my contacts, but I have (NONE OF US HAVE) any control over what Flickr chooses to add, and there's no means to mass delete these autotags (or "craptags" as they have been dubbed in the flickr help forums) - they...

    More Flickr totalitarianism

    I've just noticed Flickr is now adding tags without asking to everybody's photos. Apparently their "friendly robots" are using "advanced recognition technology" to decide what extra tags to add to your photos, and there doesn;t seem to be any way of opting out of this. fairly soon, I'll be...

    Monobaths have a long long history (decades before 1967) They are no more than a mixture of developer and fixer, so if you want to try a monobath, there's no need to buy one from New55 or whoever. Just google* for "monobath formula" and you'll get plenty of hits, and then you can buy the...

    acros pushes remarkably well. I generally shoot my little stock at 200, and I've certainly shot it at 400 to good effect. however I always develop it in caffenol-c-m and that might not suit you. FWIW about 12 mins at 200, and double that for 400
