  1. Re: Software for Converting Scanned Color Negatives

    Same thing as Curves but with limited flexibility.
  2. Re: Software for Converting Scanned Color Negatives

    In my opinion, each scan must contain unexposed film borders. Such areas will make for true Dark point.
    White point and neutral Gray is always a challenge if the scanned image does not contain such...

  9. Re: Going to Yosemite but can't take my 4x5 or 8x10. What to do?

    It is for me as it can be done in daylight and very quickly and reliably.


    I hear the same about dealing with any kind of film or film equipment from a lot of "digital" photographers.

  10. Re: Going to Yosemite but can't take my 4x5 or 8x10. What to do?

    Converting\modifying a camera like that would be a crime.
    One can use any 120 film roll back to quickly and painlessly respool forward. The respooling back will be all "manual" still.

    I think it comes down to extremes.
    If you have an F8 lens then in most cases it should allow you to make properly composed and focused exposures. But then there would be border line cases where one...

    Re: Provia 100F and Velvia 50

    My rules for using color positive film are:
    Anything at or below 1/60 @ F8 is fine.
    Anything 1/80 @ F8 is border line (better to skip it)
    Anything above 1/125 @ F8 - I don't do it.
