Have modern lenses surpassed retro lenses in image quality, or have retro lenses that something extra that is lost forever by being unattainable by modern manufacturings? Pluses and minuses of both? Discus!

Completely fine and natural. I do this a lot with flowers.
Half press shutter aiming on the side of the object you want to take a picture of so the camera focuses.
Then just move your camera over to the object and click.
Not hard to do.

Does it print video clips?

>>3493223
No, it prints photos but the Microphone allows you to save photos with sound that you can playback later (similar to "Sound & shot" mode that use to appear in some smartphone camera menus).
With the instax, if you record an audio clip, the image has a qr code embedded to it and you can then scan the code with your smartphone to hear the sound later/share with friends etc

>>
>>3490665
Find a nice wide open area (preferably NOT OVER WATER) and send the drone out. It'll build your confidence. Remember to have tour homepoint set if you get confused/nervous and need to use the RETURN TO HOME feature. Als do your general pre-flight checks making sure props are secure, you have enough gps satellites to keep connection going etc
Remember wind force is often higher as the altitude of the drone rises so if it's windy at ground level before you fly, keep an eye on your monitor for wind warnings.
Lastly, it goes without saying but since you're not used to it, as you send it higher try to keep it within line of sight so you're not disoriented once you don't see it anymore.

Yeah, they get out of calibration sometimes especially if you've been moving it around a lot. There should be an option somewhere in the menu to calibrate it.

Why is it impossible to find old photos that are bad? Every single one is overwhelmingly AESTHETIC

>>
>>3495004
If you define "aesthetic" for yourself as old style photos, all old style photos will be aesthetic for you
>>
>>3495004
Stuff that was bad didn't survive. Coupled with the fact that photographers were loosing quite a bit of money with every failed shot, makes it logical that everything you see today was well planned, executed and developed.

I got me one of the old film backs, and wound slightly past the "1" that on the new Kodak films looks more like an "I". Is it safe to proceed? How much leeway does 120 film have?

I think OP is referring to the play in-between frames.

If you passed the first marker on your wind-on, it’s almost certain your first two frames will be overlapping. After that, you’ll be fine. It’s a cheap fix though, I’d get it seen too once you get your roll out as it can be a real headache.

it really won't matter. after you load the film the camera advances the frames. aside from old backs that start to slip and give inconsistent spacing, the spacing between the frames is set by the camera / back.
The window and #1 is just there to line up the first frame (more modern backs have arrows), if you go too far beyond the marker all that could happen is that you may get a partial or cut off 12th frame.
Hasselblad is so conservative with it's frame size and spacing that this will almost never happen though, unless you are using the old back to try and squeeze out a 13th frame

the #1 is more or less doing the same thing as the arrows, but you are lining it up after you put the magazine in the back
>>
>>3494848
That’s not true. Going past 1 won’t affect any other frames’ positioning as long as the back locks on frame 2. But if you pass 1 slightly, the camera won’t wind the film on fully before locking at 2, thus giving overlapping frames. Trust me, I’ve had this exact issue.

Quite a bit, esp with the tight tolerances Hasselblads have.

All video related questions and discussion is intended for this thread. Here we discuss techniques, gear and anything else related to capturing video footage. Please don't pretend to be an expert if you don't know what you're talking about. Kindly leave your ego at the door.
Posting short films/scripts or other work you've done is encouraged.
We tend to use and recommend DSLRs/mirrorless cameras because they provide phenomenal picture quality for their price, have large sensors (ie the same size used in high-end cinema cameras and higher) and have interchangeable lenses.
In contrast, consumer camcorders normally have much smaller sensors and a fixed lens.

shut up you whores, some presets are actually nice to decent.

i haven't shot digital for like 2 years except for work or taking portraits for people etc.
they seem to be okey but some people fucking worship it
and don't get me started with those instagram hipsters, beanie on their fucking heads, ankle jeans etc taking the same fucking boring picture somewhere in the alps or nightshot and applying the same blueish/ green cast on every fucking image they take and of course saturation +30%
