Lovely images Ryan! I especially like the one of the gorge. Regarding turning on lens corrrection and the possibility of it helping reduce CA, have you tried two shots of the same subject, one with lens correction "on" and one with it "off", to determine if lens correction does indeed help? Thanks!

Dave,

I did not try taking a second shot with lens correction off...I should have for comparison's sake, but it didn't come to mind when I was shooting --was more concerned with getting the technical and artistic elements of the image right...maybe I will think of it next time I'm out!

If I do, I'll be sure to share my results with this forum.

Based on my non-scientific results from this particular scene, I can say that I did not notice ANY CA's, even in the backlit tree lines, where they tend to rear their ugly face! But certainly, this is by no means conclusive.

Test shot in my backyard working out the development time for Delta3200 at EI400. The grain looks much less than shooting it normally. I'm looking for something to give me good handhold shutter speeds with colored filter options while trying to compress the highlights in the contrasty summer sun for walking around type shooting.





Zeiss Makro-Planar CF T* 120mm, Delta3200 @ EI400, PMK Pyro - Minus-X


Closer look at the grain



wow big difference from how it shoots at 1600-3200

I think I have a stray roll kicking about I'll have to try this

Yes, it's worthy of further exploration. If the sun ever comes out around here, I'll hit the streets with my rangefinder to give it a go.

Perfectly understandable Ryan! Top priority is focusing on all the technical aspects of capturing the image and all that's associated with that task. I was just curious if turning on lens correction made a substantial difference in reducing CA? If so, you're one of the first to have noted this with regards to the 25mm. Look forward to future observations.

I was in London last night or a charity event and stayed close to London Bridge (not to be confused with Tower Bridge which is far more attractive. When I first came to London Bridge years ago I was underwhelmed). Before breakfast I grabbed two cameras, my 5D mk III and my newly returned 645D and hit the streets. These are all with the 120 f/4 macro:

Pentax 645D FA 120 at f/8 1/125 ISO 200




f/11 1/160 ISO 200




Looking across to the city:

f/11 1/200 ISO 200




f/11 1/125 ISO 200




The Golden Hind, on the um, Golden Hind!

f/8 1/100 ISO 400

I don't know who is saying you can't use medium format for wildlife but I am starting to get all the kinks worked out. Pentax 645D and 300mm 5.6. Male lion cub about 8 months old.

Love the tonality of your rocks and water. They should make really nice large display prints.

grhazelton and Eddie, thanks for your comments.

This was actually an expired test film which I had shot two months ago and had totally forgotten that there is actually some worthwhile images on the film. This was my second time I developed film by myself, this time all alone with no-one looking over. so Im just glad that they turned out ok.

Love the Bronica by the way, only have one lens but Im ok with that.

B?W film is pretty stable unlike colour. Expiry isn't as big an issue. If it's been frozen it will likely need no compensation, Refrigerated will eventually need a little more exposure. unrefrigerated i'd give an extra 1/3 of a stop or so exposure after a year to 2, double that at 3-4 years out and so on.
there are some great values in lenses for the bronnie (though GS series is more expensive than the SQ or ETR stuff) I'm selling off my ETR at the moment and will get something different in MF since i don't use it enough (great camera though, but I don't get out and shoot the type of thing it is best at often). Likely I will move to a Fuji 690 RF for MF, and initially will use the etr funds for some lenses for my K7

On my way to work with a colleague of mine close to peterborough just into the Southern Lincolnshire Fens spent a few hours pulling my cases around London. The new W hotel on Leicester square has fairly recently opened, and they have their distinctive W sign in the entrance to the lobby. Had to grab this shot fairly quickly while noone was there as two member sof staff complete with security headset made a point of standing by the sign just after:

Pentax 645D FA 33 - 55 at f/8 and 43mm (33mm 35mm equiv) 1/250 ISO 200

This is a pretty simple shot, but then so beautiful, so much detail. When I look through this thread I have to think all photos should be taken with medium format sensors(or larger). I'd love to see how these look at full size.

The top image is actually a three shot pano (taken horizontally, then cropped) using the 25mm D FA. I reported earlier that the CA's are really bad with this lens...well they weren't apparent at all in this image with the lens correction turned on...it just takes longer for the image to process before you can preview it.

what pan software did you use?
