[QUOTE=MisterM;35445828]Front and rear glass is fine on each lens thankfully. He owes me lunch tomorrow! Pour some on any cloth and get to rubbing be okay H4Z3Y?

[QUOTE=Uber|nooB;35444133]You know how if you scan C-41 black and white film as colour, it comes out with weird tints to it? Well, I really liked how the tint looked and today I got bored and wrote a program that generates a look-up-table from images like that, to apply them to actual monochrome ones, because I didn't really like what I attempted in photoshop with that. Example: input image to generate table [url=http://i.imgur.com/LoItW.png]IMG1[/url] monochrome image [url=http://i.imgur.com/pIlxW.png]IMG2[/url] output [url=http://i.imgur.com/H2Rxz.png]IMG3[/url] Worked kind of alright, just need to figure out why the output gets so much darker :x [editline]5th April 2012[/editline] oh hey, fixed it [url=http://i.imgur.com/4CzjB.png]IMG4[/url][/QUOTE] Great idea and the photos are awesome in my opinion especially the second one. They remind me of THX 1138 somehow.
[QUOTE=credesniper;35445833]I remember not so long ago someone was looking for the back of a something 220, as a replacement part. While doing research into camera stores in my area I've found a page of old camera backs and may be able to assist him. Anyone remember whom that was?[/QUOTE] It was me. :v: I'm looking for a Mamiya C22 220 back.
Okay so question; If I were to buy a Zoom H4n, and throw a windscreen on it, would I be set to go and able to throw it on a boom stick? Or isn't there a different way I should be doing it?
[QUOTE=Pickwickian-;35444698]Boom! 4000 word assignment written today. Now, rolling a spliff, having a shower and heading to a party. Love you guys.[/QUOTE] Just got back from the party. It's a beautiful day and I ended up shaving my hair into a mohawk. Pictures later. I gotta go and hand in the paper I wrote yesterday, now.

Or isn't there a different way I should be doing it?[/QUOTE] iirc it has a tripod thread on it, so you can convert that to a mic stand thread and stick it on. bear in mind you may need a shockmount rycote.com have good shit for that
[QUOTE=BoSoZoku;35446572]Great idea and the photos are awesome in my opinion especially the second one. They remind me of THX 1138 somehow.[/QUOTE] Thanks! Also, I ended up watching that movie last night and rather liked it, so thank you for letting me know of its existence :v:
I returned the Canon 100-400 lens I borrowed. I now know long lenses like the 100-400 don't appeal to me in the slightest. They are good for special events where you have to stand far away, but I think a 85mm on my crop-sensor is as far as I'll go.
saw an om-1n with a 50mm f/1.8 for 50 quid in an old crap shop today, the guy let me have a look and it's in fully working condition, apparently they got it half an hour before i was there, and it even has a bettery in it even though i'm pretty broke, really tempted to buy it just to resell it on ebay [editline]6th April 2012[/editline] also pretty sure the guy would sell it for a little less if i asked nicely :X
I'm in the search for a shoe mount(I think that's the right term) for my om-1. My father had one, but it has disappered. It's strange that you'd need the mount, and not just have it built in. [editline]6th April 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=GraniteMouse;35447503]It was me. :v: I'm looking for a Mamiya C22 220 back.[/QUOTE]Tons of backs for Mamiya C22, but none with 220 after them. Do you know if it's interchangeable at all?
Just wondering does anyone have a tapestry strap that they would part with for £5 plus what ever postage would be?
[QUOTE=credesniper;35456345]Tons of backs for Mamiya C22, but none with 220 after them. Do you know if it's interchangeable at all?[/QUOTE] haha, I made the same mistake. I'm looking for the 120 back, not 220. it's definitely interchangeable, though.
[IMG]https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-jvql8Q-7Zr4/T39eGI3n1kI/AAAAAAAAAWE/_zMMWA7ZDiI/s512/DSC00536.JPG[/IMG] Done two cameras now. Just enough leatherette for two cameras for £3.50

Has to be a Mamiya C2, C3, C22, C33, or Mamiyaflex C type camera for it to fit.
none would work for him.
Been looking for a 60D and found this, brand new for £300. [url]http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Canon-EOS-60D-4460B023-BLACK-Digital-SLR-Camera-/251036141192?pt=UK_CamerasPhoto_DigitalCameras_DigitalCameras_JN&hash=item3a72eb8688[/url] This can't be right can it? You can't even get a used one for £300... What do you guys think?
not legit at all nobody has posted feedback about it

I made an HDR over a long long long while because the weather was absolute crap (and i figured hdr was the only way to go) before & after [img]http://www.jaanus.cc/pictures/kakerdaja_diff.jpg[/img]
Here's a quote in the manual for the sprocket rocket I share with my uncle. "Cameras do not make pictures for you. No matter how advanced, how prestigious, how expensive or conversely, how plain your camera may be, the image is always derived from the photographer. This is something we have forgotten in recent times. At the end of the day, it is the person behind the camera who makes the difference. That person is you and you are the one who has to go out and discover something fresh."
so my birthday was on friday, and my mom got me an iphone 4s! this is an incredibly big deal to me, because my previous phone was a flip phone lol. feels so cool to have an internet capable device on hand

I am having the biggest creative dip ever. My photoshop class requires us to make a new scene using 10 objects or whatever that were never part of a single scene. All my ideas suck. Thought about using the Grand Canyon and putting stuff like skiers and buildings in it but everything sucks.
