    Re: Chamonix Owners - Still in Love?

    Yep. After more than a year of use, I still love it. Works as advertised, no fuss, no surprises - a joy to use.

    And I think there are certainly more than 5 Chamonix owners here.

    Re: 2x3 monorails?

    Re: 2x3 monorails?

    The 4/3 system has a film to flange distance of about 38.8mm. So any of those lenses, to focus on infinity would have to be 38.8mm from the film plane. But even then they would not cover 2x3 film. If...

    Re: How to achieve skin almost without sructure

    Red will lighten red. For caucasian skin, which is light, this means reddish imperfections will blend in. Green, blue etc will darken reddish imperfections, making them stand out against light skin.
