Before digital, there was analogue. So here is a thread on discussions about analogue photography and to share photographs, preferably one's own. Yes, including lomography.

How do you like the Konica pancake? I've used it extensively, and I'm afraid I do not like it at all.

I bought the Konica Hexanon 40mm f1.8 as it is small, lightweight, low in price yet sturdily built. The focusing ring is smooth and bokeh is decent. It can be mounted to a Sony Nex system via adaptor (as shown earlier in the picture above) and to a Nikon DSLR directly (yes, no adaptor needed!). That said, I only played with it a few times. Not because there is anything particularly wrong with the Hexanon but because digital lenses on digital bodies are just so intuitive. 

 

Why did you not like it?

Poor build quality, crude focussing helical, a propensity for "wash out" flares.

The Takumars are much better.

Yes I have heard that the Pentax lenses are excellent, especially the primes.

That looks like a mint yashica.

How do you digitalize your negatives? I have heard of solutions where you'd photograph the negative with a dslr.

the yashica is in pretty mint condition actually (at least on the outside). sent it for repairs at bang bang geng at publika put it back in working order. now, i just need to get it a strap.

 

so far, the parties that process my rolls provide negative/film scanning services. photographing the negatives with a dslr defeats the purpose of shooting with film, in my opinion.

Just watched a movie at the cinema. Forgot the title. Forgettable storyline. What impressed upon me was the fact that it was shot on film. Relatively few motion pictures are shot on film nowadays -- anything that features green screen work/visual effects are shot digitally because the visual effects are generated digitally. Not only was it shot on film, it was even anamorphic.

 

The look of film is so different. It's inferior to digital in many ways: colours are blotchy, DOF very thin because the film stock is not as fast as digital sensors so the lens is always wide open, many takes are not even sharp because of lens abberations, grainy, etc. Yet there is something delicious and rich about the look of film.

You will be surprised by the number of movies 'still' shot on film. http://www.motion.ko...tions/index.htm

 

And film does not always have to be blotchy and grainy.

Is that a recent picture or are you posting from your archives? Why film?
