    Re: Problems with Howtek d4000, please help!

    Bruce is probably right. This could also be the result of very bad voltage regulation.

    Re: Best Drum Scanning Service?

    Not correct math.

    I use 2666 for 8x10, that's 26,660 pixels for the 10 inch edge and 21,328 for the 8 inch edge. It comes out to about 3 gigs in 16 bit RGB. If I wanted to convert to B&W, it...

    I do still offer scanning services. My Premier had a preventative maintenance last year and its running like a well-oiled machine. Thanks for the kind words, Ari.

    Well, maybe I'm too tired to post. That's not what I am saying. I was explaining to Gudmundur why I wasn't envious.

    Gudmundur, this is exactly the point.... I don't think Jeff Wall is great at anything, except perhaps marketing. He is not at all "true" to the medium.

  9. Re: Your thoughts on the "Why aren't you out shooting?" post

    Bryan,

    Thing is, things used to be better. In my father's time the distribution of wealth was much different. A house cost $6,000. There have been plenty of times when the arts flourished. They...
  10. Re: Your thoughts on the "Why aren't you out shooting?" post

    This week some fellow told me I should do platinum prints for a similar price to a lab print. I should be able to get the print to a 95% result on the first try. The project might take a day and a...
  11. Re: One lens - artistic zen or a limiting frustration

    Almost every photographer in the History of Photography (Newhall) shot with one lens at a time, for fifteen years or so. I use one lens 95% of the time, a normal, and on occasion I have one a little...

    It's great to learn all this stuff... I would add a couple of points. The first is that there is always a trade-off with tilts and swings. As you have already noticed, if you focus on the ground, the...
  15. Re: Most valuable tools for working LF photographers

    I do something similar. I carry my camera on the tripod so that its easier (and faster) to shoot. I find I'm more spontaneous this way. However, when I see something I want to photograph I put the...

    Re: Pushing and Pulling effect on tone curve?

    I think that Push and Pull are terms we should dismiss outright, and never use again. I can't tell you how many photographers I've spoken to think you can take your film to a lab and push it, and get...
  17. Re: Most valuable tools for working LF photographers

    I'm with Kirk on this one. Sure a good spotmeter is important. But that's about it. One lens is all you need, at most, two. I wouldn't bother with a framing tool (you have eyes and a camera for...

  20. Re: Warning about Eizo Monitors Service Policy

    Kirk, I am in agreement. There are certainly very lousy monitors, less these days, but none of us are using those. In my process there isn't much difference at all. When I print a new image, I've...
  21. Re: Warning about Eizo Monitors Service Policy

    You won't get much searching for delamination. Just definitions. If you follow that logic, you can assume it has never happened to any monitor ever. It happens a lot to LCD panels. If you search for...
  22. Re: Warning about Eizo Monitors Service Policy

    Well, you might have a little better luck if you searched of "Eizo" instead of "Ezio". I put in "Eizo monitor issue" and found a number of issues reported.

  24. Re: Warning about Eizo Monitors Service Policy

    You seem to be intent on attacking me. Perhaps its the acerbic tone. I could be the only one that has ever experienced this issue, however, I doubt it. If that was the case, Eizo would likely have...

  27. Warning about Eizo Monitors Service Policy

    A couple of years back I purchased a 27 inch Eizo, CG275W. It came with a 5 Year Warranty. Don't believe it.

    Last year, my monitor started to de-laminate. I contacted Eizo and they told me that...
