  1. Lovely hyperbolic headline there. It's akin to Panasonic releasing a 40 megapixel micro-four-thirds camera and calling it a proper rival to full frame.
  2. TRON, Time Bandits, and The Black Hole are all as good as they ever were (although some bits of the latter are decidedly cheesy).
  3. Are you happy that you dusted off the Rolleiflex and gave it a go then?
  4. Are you using the supplied Epson Scan software? It should remove the mask automatically as long as you have the film type setting as "Colour Negative Film". Otherwise, If you're just scanning them as positives then you can either fix it all manually in Photoshop (which means you'll need to fiddle about with the colours), or use a plug-in to do it (e.g. http://eigakai.ro/ps-action/cn-scan-inversion or https://www.negativelabpro.com/).
  5. Really enjoyed that. Having been almost the same age as the primary characters during the 80s and growing up on a steady diet of American movies and pop-culture always helps these things, but it was just great entertainment anyway. There were loads of references obviously, but it was the Die Hard paraphrase that jumped out at me in, I think, episode 5. Also; I wonder what

  7. The freezing process shouldnt be an issue unless the film is out of its wrapper / container. As long as it's warmed to ambient temperature by the time you open it then condensation shouldn't form. If I've got film in the fridge or freezer, I generally take it out the night before I use it. As long as your house isn't like an oven, or you wait months / years to shoot a roll of film though, then it'll be fine stored at room temp (just keep it away from radiators, direct sunlight, or other forms of heat).
  8. That's not what I meant. I know that larger sensors provide better imaging due to the larger pixels. I was talking about the fact that his current 20 megapixel crop sensor camera will provide him with effectively 900mm of reach using his 600mm lens, which is a big advantage for wildlife. Using a full-frame sensor will lose that extra 300mm of reach in the same conditions. So, for instance, if his current camera can fill the image frame with an object using the 600mm lens, he would need to either move closer to the subject or crop into the image to get the same result using full-frame. As the 5D Mk IV is 30 megapixels (approx) it would equate to cropping away around 50% of the pixels to get the same subject to fill the frame. This would mean the final result is an approx 15 megapixel image as opposed to the 7D's 20 megapixel (approx) uncropped image. 15 Megapixels should still be more than enough though unless huge prints are required and, as you say, those 15 megapixels will be higher quality from a bigger sensor with less noise. NOTE: I know that the Canon APS-C crop factor is 1.6 - it's just easier to round it down to 1.5 for the maths. Likewise, I've rounded the camera resolutions etc. to the nearest 5 megapixels.

  10. Same here. I've had people ask me questions about the camera, and occasionally other photographers have commented on the "nice glass" or something, but I've not had any dickheads thankfully. One of the advantages I've found with a TLR is that, because you're using a waist-level finder, quite often people won't even realise you're taking a photo.
  11. Full Sky package doesn't have it either - seasons 1-3 are all there, but not the movie.
  12. You'll also lose around 300mm of reach from your 600mm if shooting it on full-frame rather than crop. You could crop in on the 5D Mk IV to get the same results, but you'd be losing half your resolution to do so. It'd still be around 15 megapixels though, so probably more than enough.
  13. Gah! This started on AMC in the UK a few weeks back, but I missed it and am now three episodes behind. Other than yarring it, is there any way to catch up? AMC US have it online, but I'm guessing I'll need a VPN to watch it there.
  14. I managed to lose track of this during S2. Will have to see if it’s on catch-up to give it another go. I need to to hide my phone and iPad before watching it this time - it’s one of those shows that needs my full undistracted attention.
  15. If you put them in a clear zip-lock bag they will usually hand check it for you if you’re concerned. That said, I had no problems with my 400asa films being x-rayed on a couple of recent trips (and the trip to New York involved some rolls being scanned several times extra as a number of attractions had x-ray security scanners too). The images were all fine.
