    Why is "The Lounge" subforum blocked if you're not logged in?

    I can kinda understand why the buy and sell stuff is blocked for non-members, but why is The Lounge blocked?

    I think I may have just answered my own question. I just found a few Fuji 4x5 colour negatives with a small hole in the corner. I also checked some Fuji Velvia shots, but they didn't have the hole...

    Wood or plastic clothes pins, or any ol' bag clip works well for roll film since you usually have lots of leader space to clip onto. For sheet films there's not very much spare space at the edges to...

    Re: 300mm Symmar-S transplant

    The lens aperture is the ratio of the lens focal length to the diaphragm diameter. The aperture scale will not be the same for a 300mm lens used in a shutter with aperture scale for a 360mm lens.

    You're right, of course. For all practical purposes there's no need to go to tenths of a stop. Even half stops are more than enough for critical work, so the mental aerobics aren't necessary.

    Re: Meter & f-stop discrepancy

    The full f stop series are the integer powers of the square root of 2 or (√2)^X where X is an integer. Each integer represents a full stop.

    Thus:
    (√2)^1=1.414
    (√2)^2=2
    (√2)^3=2.828
