A common reaction, I can assure you

I like your photos too. Unfortunately they are clocking in @ 2-3MB per which, when you pile on 4-5 in a single post, is staggering my bandwidth and choking my tablet, so I have to put the "ignore user" on to get reasonable forum page download times.

You are aware that the forum auto-scales image display dimensions: e.g. 3,089px 2,048px (orig flickr image), scaled to 1,314px 871px, with my custom settings (default settings are considerably less)?

Is anybody else having this issue?
It is not an issue for me, but I did a quick look-see and your files are pretty large. The fire escape photo on the last post comes in at just under 4.5Mb. My suggestion is to link to something of more moderate dimensions, both out of kindness and to conform to forum guidelines.* Flickr makes that easy. I generally post 1200 pixels maximum for horizontal and 800 or 1000 pixels maximum for vertical crops.

As for the forum auto-scaling, it depends on both settings and what skin is chosen. The default "Modern" skins auto-scale to fairly small dimensions using the browser JPEG engine. The results are usually somewhat sub-par when compared to an image scaled by Flickr or your favorite editor. Unless modified by user settings, the "Classic" skins show images at full resolution such that horizontal scrolling is needed to see the full composition on most tablets and laptops.

Best to scale down.

* The maximum dimensions are posted somewhere and are on the order of 1200 pixels on the long axis.

Bought and paid for! Can't wait to sit down with it.

Say, you've sure been doing a lot of range-finding of late.
Thank you so much Kevin.
I've been really into classic rangefinder cameras lately. I wanted to use my Zorki 4 as a main camera this year, but have been frustrated by light leaks. Then I fell for this Canon 7, then the Kiev-2a kinda fell into my lap.

We're following similar paths. I have that new 67ii that I'm "sipping" rolls with, but I've been obsessed with tiny RFs as well. Mostly because how astounded I was by the Konica C35 EF I got from my grandad - now I'm looking at another of those. The tiny little Hexanon on those things are beyond surprising. (I also loaded my Kiev the same day you posted the shot of your new-to-you 2a. )

This may all change though as I just scored an H3v for 30 bucks!

That reminds me... I need to shoot the Olympus 35RC I have, and I need to send my SV off to Eric... so many cameras, so little time.
Congrats on the H3v.

Flickr indeed makes it easy. And each time you go back it defaults to the last BBCode size you selected. I just leave it at 1024 across and leave it at that. If folks want a closer look, the image itself is a link back to Flickr. Win win.

I never noticed that drop down menu before, actually. I shall now use it. Thanks for all the help, everyone. Here's a test:

Yup. There's no reason to notice it until you need it.
Looks great.

Portra vs Ektar

I got some rolls back and I thought the difference between Portra 160 and Ektar 100 was interesting--both are outdoor, Portra is morning and the Ektar is afternoon. The color difference is pretty striking.

Portra 160:




Ektar 100:

They really are fascinating creatures. They're a big part of a probably-too-ambitious project I'm working on.
