most people associate how much ZOOM with IQ...the more ZOOM the better.

Pretty good density, maybe a tad bit underexposed. I think it's most likely my scanner as even the edge imprint looks terrible when I scan it.

I think you could use some work on lighting and exposure (blown highs, underexposed dark areas, and be sure your subject is as clean as possible, as there is an egregious amount of visible dust.

Blackbox, did you dev on Ilford's times? 3200 is only by way of pushing, I believe Delta 3200 is rated officially at something like 1250.

Yeah, I'm a little broke until payday tomorrow so I haven't been able to get some compressed air to clean my case out. It's so hard to keep anything clean in my dorm. Thanks for the advice.

Yeah you're right. I just realized a normal person wouldn't need anything over 135. I'm normal enough right?
post #19449 of 29539
its almost 4am here and i'm having serious dslr withdrawal issues. i miss my 1ds mk2, i miss my xti, and i miss my d700 most of all. i'm trying to shake it off by admiring the mechanical precision of the summilux 35 1.4. maybe i should get the M3 out of the tupperware and get it fixed and shoot some film.

Telephotos are probably the least used lenses. Either that or my macro. But the 70-200 is a godsend whenever I do end up going birding. Rarer than I would have liked however. People who buy 75-300 lenses in shops probably don't know too much about photography.
