niXer - amazing work with the rare Medical-Nikkor! Would love to hear how this lens works with a recent DSLR.

Did an inventory photo of my Nikkor lenses today - from left to right, 20/f3.5, 24/f2.8, 50/f1.8, 105/f2.5,135/f2.8, 300/f4.5 EDIF. Photos taken with a Rokinon 85mm f1.4, lightbox pictures with the 24mm

I used my DIY $10 lightbox setup again - somebody asked last time to share how I do this:







there is a PVC pipe frame holding up a bedsheet, and on each side sits a flash shooting at the sheet from a few feet, while the camera triggers those with the built-in flash (and kleenex diffuser). I use a whibal card to get the color correct, because the bedsheet is never really "white"

The PVC frame was built from about 20 feet of 1/2 pipe, cut with a hack saw, and held together by L and T connectors at each corner. This is just pushed together so I can fold it up. top left corner of the frame below:

Mark that's a wow factor on the whole thing
Mahai very nice work with the 35mm
Curtis speak of the 105p and there are the shots that prove how good this lens really is - Nice
Nixer I think those are the first shots I have seen using the medical lens - very nice!

Mihai, My first digital was a coolpix 900 but after that I got the D70 and loved it until the D200 came
along and then I was hooked D300 and D700 a couple of times

Nice job withe 35 f2

Always excellent exposure Georg

I don't think there's a lens in my kit that I've regretted buying, but I am selling off a few bits of kit (AF so far) just to simplify my life. Definitely the 105 f/2.5 should be in your kit, and the 180 f/2.8 AI-s, I have two, one's a little beat up on the body of it, but glass is good. Soon as I find time to get some shots of it, I may post it on B&S.

There seems to be a few people asking about/adding different MF lenses here from time to time. I only have two so far, but plan on more eventually.

For all the "regulars" here, what is the lens you are most happy you acquired....

.... and which (if any) do you wished you hadn't?

Scary end of the day for sure, glad she wasn't hurt. I know those boards aren't comfortable either. Lovely shots, looks like a great place.

We finally cashed in an offer from our friends to go out wine tasting this past weekend. First stop was Baily's Vineyard and Winery where we ate lunch at Carols' Restaurant and then did a bit of wine tasting. I had my first port and even learned how it was made. We then went down the road to Ponte for another tasting. We still had fun there, but it was too busy for my taste. I am not a fan of having to practically yell to have a conversation.

We were heading out the door to go home and Jen

Great, thanks for sharing the setup. Looks like I'll hit Lowe's this weekend for some pipe, too

And yes, I've been busy, Chemistry is kicking my mental butt something fierce. New kitty had her surgery today too, so that puts an end to the love calls that have been made here for the last week... Oh... btw,

Thanks Chuong, Scott, Georg and Jose for the comments on the kite surfers.

Kenny, really nice zoo shots. Great composition and colors on the lion portrait.

Samy, beautiful birds!

Georg, another terrific pano and I really like the lighthouse "sketch."

Kevin, the hood ornament is a very cool shot.

Leighton, love the shot of Barbara with lamb in arms and the snow photos.

Peter, beautiful set from the nursery and the Underwood keyboard is terrific.

Jim, great job with the 400mm combo.

Tony, nice set and glad Jen is ok.

Ray, love the tone of the bricks.

Curtis, really like the tube shots with the 105mm.

Philippe, I enjoyed 'Film Noir" very much.

Chuong, very nice b&w of the waterfall.

Mark, beautiful Tower shots. The "teasers" are unique and interesting.

Mihai, great night shot.

nixer, nice set with the Med-Nikkor!

Very nice shot Laura. I was in Dayton Monday and Tuesday. I was under such a time crunch, but I did think about you as we drove from the airport through town.

Boy am I out of practice with film.

Had my FE2 loaded up with Provia 100 and had been shooting with my 50/1.2 when I noticed that I could just keep shooting after 36 shots had been registered on the counter.

Hmm . . .

Turns out the film leader had come undone on the take-up reel/sprocket and I wasn't advancing the film at all since I had loaded it a few months ago!

At least with digital you usually know if you are actually taking image or not!

I've re-loaded it more carefully and confirmed that the film is actually advancing. Now to take all those pictures again.

I have 8 more rolls of Provia 100 to shoot and then I'm done with film forever and the FE2 gets sold.

I still have a few automatic film cameras (N70 and an Olympus point and shoot), but they are no fun to shoot!

Soooo - 80-200mm f4.5 - how does it compare to the 180mm F2.8 ED MF lens? I don't care too much about the speed, just sharpness and contrast. And how do these two compare to the <shudders> 70-300mm AF lens? It fits my needs for weight and range, and a refurb can be found for a reasonable price.


It isn't quite as fancy as the 180, but I was never disappointed by mine. I am actually very pleased with every shot I ever took with it and it stands up well to landscape use.

With non-chipped glass this camera does not offer metering... so it was a good chance to remember the old good times when I started into photography with a cheap USSR rangefinder and Sunny 16 rule


Ahhh, the good old Sunny 16 Rule. Remember how they printed the exposure combinations on the inside of the Kodachrome paper box.
