My 70-200 2.8 is too heavy.






Only the first time though because my D60 doesn't fit my hand D: The 70-200 is much easier to hold even with something like the D90.

Well, yeah, but you're not going to shoot 8x10 just to share on the internet -- that's kind of the point I was trying to make. I mean, I guess you could. Seems wasteful, though.

Sure, but that's still hinging on whether it comes out OK or not -- I only put some test shots on the roll with some differently-toned subjects to see if there's going to be any color shift or weirdness in shadows/highs.

Unless his hands are /really/ tiny, it won't be a big problem. I have smaller-than-average sized hands, and I have yet to have a problem with any cameras. It actually makes things easier with my 645 because I can easily slip my fingers into the space between the grip and camera body, so it takes no effort to hold onto it when I'm walking around. My dad cannot do that, and complains if I ask him to hold the camera for more than a couple minutes.
Holding an RB/RZ is like holding a cinder block that weighs less. There's nothing ergonomic about them, nor does there need to be.

You also get typically better optics, and you can stop down more without having to worry about diffraction.
While true, again, I wonder why move up in negative size unless you plan to enlarge on paper? There's lots to like about larger formats, but I don't think the cost of operation justifies shooting them just for sharing on Flickr. My opinion, of course.

Allrighty then. Did you ask the lab to develop it normal? I've heard of people shooting it as rated, then asking the lab to push 1/2 to 1 stop to compensate.

Wow, you're right. That looks super awkward. I guess it's designed to be mainly used on a tripod?

I typically don't do huge enlargements, but I much prefer medium format over 35mm. Even on an 8x10 enlargement, I just find it to have more detail and better look for some reason. This is obviously subjective though, so ymmv.



Okay, so I've probably asked about this before, but I don't really remember. I have a random copy of photoshop CS5 extended lying around. Full version, in box, with product key. I just checked, and it does not seem to be registered to my adobe account. What should I do with it? Adobe sent it to me after I applied for the "complimentary CS5.5" email they sent out, but it turned out that there was no photoshop CS5.5.

Seriously, no 5D3 tomorrow. New video cameras; 5D3 would compete with 1Dx, doesnt make any sense.

I just had them dev as normal, next to a 120 roll of Portra 800 that was fresh. At least this way, it should be a little easier to tell what kind of subtleties (or huge shifts) exist between the two.

RB/RZ is a camera you pretty much never shoot unless it's on a tripod made of lead. The mirror slap is hilariously intense in the RB, but the lenses are so awesome for that whole system. If you've got time to set up a shot, don't want to carry a 4x5 and like the rotating back, the RB is for you. Also, they are cheap as dirt, you can get a working body/lens/back for 300 bucks.

Oh, for sure, but 35mm is ever so convenient to toss in a bag, use a built-in meter and shoot away. I print 8x10 from 35mm negs without issue, although the same shot on 645 would be infinitely cleaner. I don't print 8x10 from digital much, fwiw.

For some interesting perspective, an RZ, GSW690, 30D and 503C (and a Yashica D!) next to one another. Keep in mind what a 30D looks and feels like in your hand.

Didn't Kodak completely redesign portra since 2003? Or was that just the lower ISO versions?

Probably not for me then. I almost always carry a tripod, but I'm a cheaparse, so it's whatever tripod I can get for $20 or less. My Pentax has very little mirror shock until it flips back down, so I've never really had problems except that one time when I shot a roll of infrared film with all the tripod latches still broken.

That's why I love my Pentax. It just works, no fiddling. It's easier to use than my 35mm cameras, but that's probably because I only have a Canon TL and an old manual vivitar.

As far as I know, it was just the 160 and 400 -- they're now labeled as NEW PORTRA 400, etc.

And the new Portra sucks for wet printing.
