1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    IC I would think that as long as you do the math and get the real focal length on a cropped sensor and match that to the focal length on the film camera you should be close. If nothing else you'll have an f stop shutter combination to start with instead of guessing and bracketing like a madman. All the meters on my Minolta cameras don't meter right once you get down to 3 EV. That's why I'm trying to find that one viewfinder for the XK, it meters down to 1 EV.

    I'm also thinking we're all screwing up if we aren't using filters when we go out and shoot B&W film. I'll go so far and say I know we are. I shot a few rolls after about a zillion years of not shooting it and the images just didn't look right. So out came the books for refresher course 101 and sure enough B&W film is overly sensitive to certain wavelengths of light, in particular blue. A sure sign of this is "white sky" and a lot of mushy grey tones. Ilford's website confirms this as well. So do my pics. Ahhh the hazards of forgetting that different mediums require different techniques to overcome their specific idiosyncrasies.

    Another Angry Sky shot. If this would have been shot in B&W film without a filter it would have been a washed out mess. With a number 25 or 29 filter this is what I would expect to see using B&W film.

    Haven't seen the movie. Are there aliens that looks like soda bubbles in it?

    Well sorta in a green snotty kinda way. It all depends on magnification. The culprit is a crystal space virus that instantly clots the blood if inhaled among other things. It's a classic sci fi movie from eons ago.

    Looks like an interesting fellow, Biscotti.

    Something else from Avoriaz, can't remember what kind of film this was, nor camera, probably the Nikon F.

    Wow that looks like something from an old "wish you were here" postcard!

    I'm pretty impressed with my 4 year old's photography skills today. He's into shooting street photography strangely, I'm looking for something he can shoot with that is easy for him to figure out. I'm thinking just the ipod touch. Anyways these are some shots he captured today. He chose the filters and all :)

    IC I think you should give your son your Canon 5D. LOL! The kid's got talent.

    So I came a cross a 100-500 f2.8 internal focus it's a telescope lens and the price is pretty good. Decisions decisions. It would make wildlife and astrophotography a whole lot more interesting.
