  1. Do labs want to stay in business ? -Sam
  2. I think your expectations for these lenses may be a bit too high. They are not going to have the resistance to flare / veiling glare as more modern glass. The Kitchen shot with the 17.5 does look a bit overexposed with respect to the others, but it might be lens internals as well - shooting into the light source you are flashing the negative in a sense.... -Sam
  3. For burst shooting with my D3 I format each card (Extreme IV Ducati) twice in camera before shooting. And deletions can cause fragmenting, yes. Not quite an analogous situation, but FWIW -Sam
  4. Oops, I thought this was the Lighting Up Forum, my bad....... -Sam
  5. Can you smoke it ? Fog'll give you some motivated spread in the lighting. You can justify some "fill" -Sam
  6. Hi Chris, I guess you may be right. maybe the Nikon D3 with (12 ?) taps on the chip is just doing a fast read ? Wherever the reset "is", I haven't found it. I thought maybe the shutter was hiding it, or maybe it is an effective global shutter. Curious.... -Sam ps not denying the Red has skewing issues (wouldn't deny D90 in video mode either !!)
  7. My Rex 4 FS is a collectable at a great price B) -Sam (I'm bending the rules -- uh oh)

    85B vs. 85

    I think the differences are really overstated 200K difference in the target is visible but that's not what you're asking the filter to do, 5500K is a kind of generalization for daylight, there's far more than 200K difference between shooting at noon an 5 PM, there can be 2000K difference going to full shade etc etc -Sam
  9. I'm not so sure - my Nikon w/ CMOS can do up to 9 fps Full Frame & 11 fps DX frame & I see no significant skewing... admittedly higher frame rates there would be mechanical issues with that type of shutter (but a focal plane disk could solve them) but I don't see why you'd have skewing / reset artifacts at say 24 if you don't have then at 10 or 11, just more frames -Sam
  10. True enough, I have Apple Color but don't have the way cool Jura-Capresso Impressa S9 that Shooters does; Davinci Schaminci, dime a dozen, but that is one rockin' coffee machine :rolleyes: -Sam http://www.1st-line.com/machines/home_mod/...so_machines.htm Note it has a render bar ! "2-line Alpha/Graphic LED display with graphics bar that indicates progress of the brewing process." Hmm marked down to $ 2399 Shipping Included......
  11. Now if P&S can do a film recorder at the same price :) As for colorists, honestly if those on Adrian's Low Budget producer list want to keep shooting film, those really commuted, might just have to acquire some of those skills as a survival mode, some boats you have to sail yourself -- -Sam

    85B vs. 85

    ~ 1 printer light point worth of difference I'd bet You could _breathe_ on the Hue control on a Davinci and turn one into the other -Sam
  13. as I said on another thread, CCD chips for 50MP Hasselblad/Imacon; Leica M8; new Leica S2 -Sam
  14. No don't take anything apart ! Facing the light there is a pin on the right, pull it down and swing the door containing the fresnel lens open. Bring the lamp forward to the spot position for easy access. The EGT or EGR lamp will come out with a twist of the base. Put new one in, careful not to touch the quartz glass as you know. (there is a plastic sheath over the glass on new bulbs. Swing the door shut. -Sam ps make SURE there is NO power to the light, do NOT assume it's off if the switch is off, *every* light I have ever changed the lamp on I personally physically see it is not plugged in, I have never relied on someone saying so etc
