But it's just going to be viewed with our green sensitive eyes again, throwing away whatever enhanced fidelity in red and blue and lost information in green, so I don't understand the point here?

Use of separate Luminance and Chrominance signals for colour recording and transmission predates Bayer, and indeed predates NTSC or PAL TV (it was invented back when flying-spot scanning was a viable alternative to photosensitive tubes). Bayer was using existing terminology rather than coining new terminology.

I don't, but worst case scenario you could send it to Narcosis101 in California. A full service + pressure test was $120usd if I remember correctly.

I have a Nikonos V. I have never shot it underwater. My wife bought it years ago for a special project and hasn’t used it since. Only have the 35mm lens for it. I like it for hikes or bike rides, I think it’s a great knock around outdoors camera. It’s definitely built like a tank and very weather/dust proof. The thing to keep in mind is it is zone focus only. You will spend a lot of time flipping it over to check your settings using the calculator on the front of the lens. Zone focusing can be tough, but not impossible in low light. I miss focus indoors as much or more on my Nikon FM SLR as I do on the Nikonos. The shutter is very muted, which I like. I find the rangefinder design is good for long exposures. The auto exposure mode and meter are easy to use, once you get used to the guesswork for focus. I seem to get more likes on Instagram with my Nikonos photos than Nikon fm photos, for what it’s worth. Example is a random ass walkabout photo I took on the Nikonos with pro image 100

Are you going to be using it underwater or do you just need a rugged outdoor camera? You should look into the Konica Genba Kantoku. It was a camera designed for use on construction sites.

I have 2 Calypsos. They're not the Nikonos (they're the precursor), but they're functionally the same, so I feel like my opinion is relevant.

These are incredible cameras from a mechanical perspective, and are super fun to use in a their intended setting. They produce cool as hell, unique as hell images when used in the water. They're also super fun to take in the shower or out in a rain storm. They're not complicated or prone to breaking. They are somewhat limited in their capabilities just because there are no teles, portraits, or great macros made for them.

Overall I recommend, but only if you actually plan to use them in a water environment. Otherwise and old p&s will do fine.

VSCO is often an underrated tool. They have nice film presets and their color editing is fantastic. I wish you could have more control like in Lightroom, but I don’t think that’s the purpose of it desu. So I end up using both sometimes.

That's from somebody who was featured in the original New Topographics show.

Neat. Do you think you could pull off macro shots through a thicc ND filter of the plasma cutting and arc welding? I guess the trick would be to get enough ambient light as well to see more of the part, I don't know what kind of equipment you'd need for that.
>>
>>3951950
Possibly. I wouldn't have much of a clue what I'd need to see the part.
>>
>>3951955
I'd probably meter it to blow out the arc but not the puddle, and work backwards from that to find out what the intensity of the light needs to be.

Maybe it's good enough to light the workpiece using a reflector. Otherwise some very big strobe or spotlight that can be focused in a very narrow spot. But that's probably very expensive.

It would be a pretty unique photo, though. I don't think I've ever seen anything like it.

I get about five a year. Never had a problem. I'm either immune, or more likely, I've figured how to spot bites early.
Bastards are territorial, and weather dependant. I know of an area where there's a ton of them. I've had at some fifty crawling over me there. They don't like heat, they don't like low humidity, and cold kills them. They're the most active during the spring. As soon as leaves start to sprout, be extra cautions. After midsummer, it's already quite hard to get them. Fall is nearly safe. Winter is completely safe.
I still would not take them lightly. I've had a schoolm8 that lost whole year and had to be hospitalized for half of it. Bite that was undetected for too long.
Tuck your pants into your socks. Dust your pants often when going through undergrowth, avoid brushing leaves and branches, and strip naked whenever you get home. Then just scratch every itch for few days. Skin gets irritated after tick bites, so they're easy to spot that way.
>>
>>3951893
Appreciate you doing some research. It's definitely becoming more of a problem. There are also other diseases like the alpha gal allergy that are particularly insidious.
>>3951917
The thing is with Lyme is that you can be bitten and maybe not get infected for a while. The alpha gal allergy though is transmitted pretty much immediately on bite, so if you get bit, you are basically fucked if the tick carries that disease. And lone star ticks are increasing in population in the Northeast where I live.
>>
>>3951943
And tick borne encephalitis. I got the shot for that.

Alpha gal allergy really creeps me out, I thought you could only get that from the lone star, but apparently you can get that from castor bean ticks too, but at a lower risk.
>>
>>3951946
It scares the shit out of me. It's no exaggeration that it would really fuck my life up. So that's why I don't fuck around with woods.
>>
>>3951888
They're an intense menace to some people here. Like, go through the garden to put something in the compost, go back, have tick or two.
And some people don't get a single one all year.

What equipment do you use for travel? I'm going to Scotland tomorrow and can't decide what to take with me. I have a X-T2 with 27mm, 35mm and 18-55 and a Canon 6D with a 50mm 1.8.
I'm currently leaning towards just taking the X-T2 and the 27mm for portability. I'll be both in cities and the countryside.
Do you guys tend to go for portability or widest focal length possible?

I make do with the rickety plastic kit lens and a fast portrait prime for shitty light. MFT ain't ideal but it's perfect for travel. Otherwise, the rolleicord and a filter kit takes up less space.

Yeah but are they remotely good enough quality? Printing a photo is a process. Colors look different on different paper and require editing. So does overall brightness. Also, most people shoot in 2x3, so they'd have to crop to get to 5x7.

Overall though I would definitely recommend this as a compact travel camera for when you cba to bring an actual camera kit. It has a good zoom range (28-112 135 equivalent), it's tiny (smaller than my gossen lunalite) and most of all it's a fun camera to use.

Here's an actual method that works
>Learn the basics of getting a technically competent photo, shutter speed, aperture, iso etc
>Learn the visual patterns that make for compelling compositions and learn those well. Lines, shapes, shadows, colors. subframes, negative space, visual hierarchy, etc. Go out looking for these patterns even when you're not shooting. Be mindful about creating compositions that use these patterns.
>Immerse yourself in the art style you want to learn. Look at photos of photographers you like, watch documentaries, watch jewtubers.
Do this for a few years and you will get much better than if you just randomly go out shooting snapshits.
