    Metering over exposes Z-system with vintage lens

    Yesterday I affixed my old Nikon AF NIKKOR 20mm f/2.8D via the FTZ adaptor to my Z6ii. I understand it's manual focusing only, which is fine - but even so, focusing (without enlarging) was very challenging. I've got red focus peaking on and when zoomed in, the focusing works much better (to be...

    Camera histograms - are they useful?

    I had an outing with another photographer last week and we had a little discussion on whether the in-camera histogram is useful or not. He says "yes", I say "no". It would be interesting to hear your views. The discussion applies to raw shooting only, and probably mainly to landscapes where...

    Sliding over from mu-43 👋

    Been a long time member of mu-43, but really cut back when they dumped the mobile app. Then pretty much closed y activity when so many 4/3 friends stopped regular posting. Just posted a question there for the first time in a year, got a quick answer, and then started browsing other posts to see...

    Top Gun Maverick- Deja Vu all over again, 633 Squadron and Star Wars

    Finally got a break and went to see Top Gun Maverick. Great movie. Like watching a 21st century version of the Cliff Robertson movie 633 Squadron. This is the movie that George Lucas cites as inspiration for the original Star Wars attack on the Death Star. A quick search showed up that other...

    Nikon My Z 6 has taken over my bag

    I don't need another camera. For the first time I can say that and mean it after thinking it through. My Z6 shoots everything, better than any camera I've ever owned , close enough that I don't care. Nikon's updates have helped this platform grow into a world class imaging system. That's how...

    Clearing Out The LR Catalog - Over 150,000 images in there

    So, I've decided that I hold on to stuff for way too long. between the business shots and personal images, I've accumulated over 150,000 images in the lightroom catalog. Honestly, everything runs fine...but there are images in there from 2008 for events that should be purged and experimental...

    Art over the Sofa

    While googling “monochrome painting”, I came across the image “Saturn Devouring One of his Sons” on this site. What amuses me is the shots of this print hanging in a typical house. Maybe it’s just me, but I’m not sure I would put this in the family/living room. Maybe in my personal study or...
