This is may be regarded as a gear thread, although I see it as slightly more technical in nature: I've been using a canon 5D mk3 w/ MP-E 65mm in my setup and was wondering about trying the S or S-R, however I can't establish whether moire will be an issue as I couldn't find anyone on the other forums whose used either for insects. Does anyone have experience with the S-R?
>>2763102 I'm using a 5Dii and the mp-e 65mm. I've been looking at this as well and have been considering renting a 5Dsr to see if there is a serious issue with moire. If I recall correctly the fellows over at lensrentals (the kings of gear nerds) seem to think it won't be an issue. The real question is what does the MP-e resolve detail at. Yes you will end up with larger files to print from but with only marginally better detail if mpe doesnt resolve detail to that resolution. I suspect that it doesn't but this is just a gut feeling after having used the lens for so long. I also may be talking a bit out of my ass. Gearfagging isn't a specialty for me.
Old mechanical SLRs aren't differentiated in the way modern cameras are. Pentax, Mamiya, Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Minolta and even cheap shit like Chinon and Praktica are all pretty much the same and the 50mm 1.7~2 kit lenses are all great. The electronic ones (aside from a basic meter) are more differentiated but also generally lower quality and more likely to be broken.
I need help /p/ I my house got robbed recently and all I got were these shitty videos from the neighbors camera. Is there a way to get a cheaper image or maybe some sci Fi csi shit to zoom in and get a license plate?
Anyone washes their own Vision film for shots? Before or after? ...Ive used some pre washed V3 (water+baking soda), looked like shit. Then shot V3 washed post-shot, and it looked decent when scanned, but still too yellow greenish, too lomoish.
Any other method besides water+baking soda wash for the remjet?
Pic is from somewhere else. Cinestill 800 i think.

>1. When pouring your chemistry back into your containers, please use a coffee filter in your funnel to capture any "rem jet" waste. This will keep your chemistry clean for re-use!
>2. After your Blix, rinse your film in a half bucket of hot water (80 - 102 degrees F) with a few table spoons of Baking Soda. With your thumb, gently rub the non-emulsion side of your film as you remove it from your film reel. Careful not to scratch the emulsion of your film. Final rinse under running water before submerging your film into the two-minute Stabilizer. You will see the black rem jet in your water as you rinse.
that or just shoot cinestill, not that much more expensive. or just be a normal person and shoot ektar or portra, they use vision 3 technology so don't vary much apart from color balance/speed
>>2759453 I use Cinestill 50D. It's currently my favorite general-purpose color neg film, but the slow speed is a bitch when I'm not outside. I wish they spooled 250D into canisters too, I would buy that in a heartbeat. 800T has horrible, ugly grain that I can't get into.
I would never even consider removing the rem-jet layer myself.
OP, have you ever shot any Vision 2383? It's really slow but it doesn't have a remjet layer. Seems like it would be interesting.
20.0-Megapixel camera that's good on your budget. You can then get a good memory card and a case for it Nikon - Coolpix L840
A camera right on your budget with some wiggle room to get accessories. This camera is able to compete with most professional MFT cameras that cost 4 times as much. (pricier alternative Canon - PowerShot SX530)
Always look for second hand, take a friend with you who knows cameras. Ask for a recent unedited photo of any prospective SLR to get an idea of shutter count (you can upload this photo online; there are free tools to work it out).
I got my first D70 and 50 1.8 for $200AUD $150ish USD second hand. There was some haggling but I always loved that camera.
Personally I would prefer a 10 year old SLR to most modern point and shoots. I prefer the ergonomics (and now I have plenty of glass for 'em too).... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So I got a box of cameras from someones attic. Crap mostly. I was hopeful for the Kodamatic, and it DOES work, but the film expired in '85 and is practically useless. The Canonet seems like a good camera in general but the shutter and the aperature blades are completely stuck. The rest is some agfa stuff either not working or using 126 film. So the only camera that actually (mostly) works is a Porst FX 4 with a Meyer Görlitz Domiplan 50mm f2.8. I'm kinda disappointed because I'd been waiting for that particular box for months and now it's really not of much use/beyond repair/LQ.
I'll post some test shots I did with the Porst on HP5 anyway. Maybe I can at least kill a gearfag thread with this and all of my anticipation will not have been for naught.
I'm thinking about getting a scanner so I can.. scan (obviously) negatives. I'm on a bit of a tight budget, and I'm wondering what in specific I should look for. Will a regular old scanner do the job? How about printing?
>>2761118 It ain't bad, the colours are a bit too intense I think but hey, some people like that, and there is some weird "haze" over the trees caused by the HDR process But I really think that an HDR would be the way to go to take this picture on a mid-range DSLR
