    Compact A7r III kit

    So the Christmas specials came around and I jumped on a deal on that I could not pass up on the A7r III. It was quite a discount. I will only need a couple of lenses and they need to be compact. I am a lazy sod and will only tote so much. The end output is for large home prints, I've got a lot...

    Prints for Sale - Sub forum

    Am I dreaming but I seem to recall this site had a sub-forum of "Prints for Sale" ? I distinctly recall members here selling prints of their work somewhere. I've had a look around. It was not on "Gear for Sale" Are prints sold in another section ? Any ideas ? Thank you.

    M mount choice

    I have a desire to re-invest in a M-mount film camera. I had a Konica Hexar RF and a Leica MP (2002 version) in the past at separate times. I intend to run either a 35mm or 50mm lens. Preferably Leica but maybe Zeiss or other. Right now I am considering a M6 but notice prices have risen. The...

    GR with IBIS possible Hi-Res ?

    I was wondering if the new 24Mp GR III with its 3 way IBIS could possibly be able to have a Hi-Res mode like the EM1.2 has ? Is this just a matter of software which may mean licensing the patent but is there any reason why the GR III now could not have this. The idea of 50 Mpixel in the size of...

    New X70, a Ricoh GR or Coolpix A alternative

    While I was about to bemoan the lack of large sensor compacts, according to rumours it looks like Fuji is about to release the X70. APSC 28mm equivalent compact. The non telescoping lens design is welcome as is the tilt screen. Its tough to judge the size but it seems is may be not too small...

    A7 & Loxia 35mm vs RX1/r

    Some of you are aware of my penchant for HQ fixed lens compacts. Hence a RX1/r is on my shopping list. I also am considering an A7 or A7II (not the R) combined with the Loxia 35mm/f2. This comparison has obvious similarities and I think is valid. Both have Sony Sensors, both Zeiss lenses, both...

    Any suggestions on Disc film scanning?

    Hi, My scanning project is coming to a close and I have some assorted bits to scan. One of the items is this film that my wife took in 1980 thereabouts. Some online suggestions are to cut the film out, but I'd prefer to retain its as is. I could just try a flatbed with light source and lose on...
