The helical is coming from china so i have a lot of time to polish up the print with some sanding, matte painting the inside and adding felt for light seals.

hp5+ or tri-x for portrait/fashion photographyI've used tri-x a bit because I like grittiness but something about hp5 tones are lovelypic rel is tri-x
>>3797996I mean unless you plan to shoot tri-x and fuji c200 for 15$ a roll for the rest of your days, it's going to be de facto dead in 5 to 10 years.
>>3797855Just opened the back of my Pentax KM, Still had about 5 shots left on the reel, last photo I took on it was like a year ago. I feel like a retard.
>>3798009>for portrait/fashion photographyiso 100
>>3798016Sometimes that can work out.
Damn - I've been shooting alot with my A1 lately and I'm floored by how great it feels to use and how great the 50mm f/1.8 performs. The bokeh is creamy as hell. What a time to be alive.
>>3798009They're very similar in all aspects anon, and the small differences, say in contrast and whatnot, can be mostly compensated by developer + dev technique (times, agitation, etc.).So I say get what's cheaper or most readily available. Or if you nailed down your times and technique based on either film, keep using that, not worth the effort figuring those out for the other.As an anecdote, in most, common developers and "standard" times, I prefer the lower midtone contrast of HP5+ over TriX. Seems to give a straighter curve.Also in the UK I used to get HP5+ for a fiver, and TriX was £8+ (before the hikes), so I used it almost exclusively and figured out the look I like: Perceptol 1+3, shot at ISO160-200, -15% dev compared to recommendation, normal agitation after the first couple minutes and then slow inversion every 3 minutes. Absolutely nice, full tonality and could tame even very contrasty scenes. Due to price and availability, I never bothered to use TriX extensively and adapt it to look exactly as I wanted it (as above with HP5+). But it can be done.Lastly, TriX has a slight speed advantage in Diafine, like half a stop or a bit more.[EXIF data available.

>>3798054>>3798056Just trying to make a point lads.TriX and HP5+ can be used interchangeably and everybody will be none the wiser without autistic side by side comparisons - if that.The point is don't stress about it. They have virtually the same sensitivity, grain, response to developers, etc etc. . The only minor difference is HP5+ has a more straight curve while TriX a more S-curve given same development. That's all really. >TL;DR: just use what's cheaper and more available, it doesn't matter.[EXIF data available.

>>3798009How do you achieve such sharpness?????
>>3798081I spy medium format if I'm not mistaken.
i just bought my first film camera, what do you guys use for general purpose colour photography?
is there any point in upgrading from an rb67?i wish there was a 2.8 normal for the RB67, or the hasselblad 500cm was 6x7, or if there was some other mechanical only 6x7 camera with a 2.8 normal. that camera would be practically perfect
>>3798203Why what are you trying to do?A 6x7 SLR is barely a handholdable low-light camera, what would you need the f/2.8 so much for?
>>3798209because there isn't one for his system and he's a gearfag
>>3798209subject isolation. also i dont mind carrying around the rb its fun to use lol.dof simulator seems to indicate the difference between a 110 2.8 and a 127 3.5 is basically irrelevant so i guess i will make due https://dofsimulator.net/en/>>3798210unironically this
>>3798203I do a shoot a week with my RZ don’t know why anyone thinks an electronic shutter is a bad thing.
>>3798212>subject isolation.So let me get this straight, have you actually shot what you have wide open and you found it lacking? I barely shoot the 80mm at f/2.8 unless I actually need the light. But otherwise it’s not worth risking missed focus or one eye in focus while the other or the nose isn’t.Have you tried a portrait lens? Something like the 180mm f/4.5? A typical portrait lens in MF will usually give you more subject isolation than you can handle.Aperture is not the only way, focal length plays an even bigger role.If you wanna go insane with subject isolation, get a cheap pentacon six and a relatively cheap 180mm f/2.8 Sonnar.But once you actually use it, you’ll find out the gimmick wears out fast and it’s not practical to shoot like that in most cases.
>>3798226right now all i have is a 90 3.8 which i really really like but half-body shots have really cluttered backgrounds. i find it very difficult to frame things from so far away but mb i just need to getgood
>>3798234Then give the 180mm a try.It's one of the cheapest lenses for the system iirc, something like $100 or so.It'll take care of cluttered backgrounds just fine, both due to thinner DoF and the narrower field of view that cuts out lots of the "peripheral" background.And you might like the perspective better too.

>>3798015As long as Hollywood filmmakers still shoot movies on film, they won't close down manufacturing for at least some film. They will need to maintain capacity to produce color film, in terms of manufacturing equipment and staff, so I expect they will continue to make some film basically forever, out to 30 years from now at least. It'll only get more expensive tho>>3798202kodak ultramax 400, proimage 100 when it's summer and not dark/overcast all the time

My first five rolls of film will be back from the lab next week, what's the common practice for dumping images? Would they go here because they're film, or should I just make my own "am I a talented photographer??" thread?
>>3798372Make your own thread
>>3798015There is still a market for technical film. Heck some dentists even still use X-ray film in 2021. So as long as demand for those is still there many manufactures may just continue to produce consumer film as it's using the same machines anyway.

Also just got an Argus C3 for 12 bucks from a local thrift store and, after some slightly tedious tinkering with the rangefinder to get it calibrated, shot a roll of Bergger Pancro 400 with it to test it out. Excited to see how it turns out

Recently got an old Ruski rangefinder from my Grandad, seems to work fine but there is mould on the shutter. It looks like there are no light leaks when looking through the shutter, would this be alright to shoot with it?[EXIF data available. Click here to show/hide.]Camera-Specific Properties:Image-Specific Properties:
>>3798645yeah what lens do you have?i'd say there's like a 60% chance something really weird is off with it, like the shutter speeds are way off, the curtains stick, the second curtain is released to soon, who knows. it'll be awesome if the rangefinder patch is still bright enough to focus with and if the rangefinder is still calibrated (the calibration is an easy fix).i would put a roll of superia or colorplus orwhatever cheap film you can find through it, not hope for anything and see how it comes out
>>3798646It's a Jupiter 8 50mm f.2. I'm not sure about the calibration of the range finder, but the rangefinder patch still seems bright enough to focus with. And to my limited knowledge it does look like the curtain is works fine. My Grandad did take care of his cameras and he was pretty big into photography[EXIF data available.

>>3798768And yet they keep increasing the price?
>>3798829>have objectively the most popular color film in the space >now have zero competition hmm how should they price it brainiac?
>>3798829Well they do say that there have been challenges in keeping up with increased demand. So maybe they're taking advantage of that and raising prices just because they can. Simple economics.
Actual retard here, can someone explain overexposing vs pushing/pulling in development to me? If I'm shooting Ektar 100 and I rate everything at 65, how should I ask for it to be developed? Will it look good if it's developed at box speed still, or does some kind of compensation need to happen? I've been doggedly sticking to box speed for metering because I'm scared of getting this simple problem wrong
>>3798846Overexposing means you shoot at 65 and you don’t tell your lab anything. This is what you want to do. No one pulls film anymore.
Anyone fuck around with Brownie box cameras or the like and respool 120 onto 620 spools? I got a Target Six-Twenty I wanted to try out and my smart ass thought "oh I have a camera that does both 120 and 620, I'll just run it through there a couple times, ez". It *seemed* to work but I think the loose end of the film not taped onto the backing paper caused some issues. Ended up having to retape the starting end and lost 2-3 frames. For the future, should I just respool it by hand? Or is there a way I could make this work? I guess at the very least I could use the 120/620 camera to make winding a bit easier.
>>3798846Overexposing means just that, giving more light than necessary to your exposure.Similarly for underexposing.Pushing means developing for longer. This is usually done in tandem with (and to compensate for) underexposing.Pulling means developing for less time. Usually done in tandem with overexposing.The confusion might be from the fact that many times people will say I "pushed X to Y" without mentioning the underxposure part which is usually implied. Then others will say "I pulled Z" and mean only the development part or only the overexposure part. It's always better to be clear like "shot at X, devved at Y".Pulling (i.e. overexposing *and* reducing development) colour negative film doesn't make much sense.In B&W the effect of pulling is reducing contrast so you can capture a scene with high dynamic range without blown highlights or crushed shadows. As a secondary effect, you get less grain. The only sacrifice is speed, since you shoot at lower ISO when pulling.In C-41 film, the main problem is colour casts when pulling (or pushing), and this is true for all colour processes. The 3+ layers that correspond to the primary colours and are calibrated with each other to give correct colour balance, don't behave identically under pushing or pulling, so the colour balance is affected. And it's not a simple, uniform colour cast, but it's different in highlights and shadows (also inbetween, but less noticeably so), which is a bitch to correct.Now combine this major drawback with the fact that many C-41 films have wider dynamic range than B&W (primary point of pulling is to increase DR), so you see why pulling C-41 is a rare thing.That said, you can overexpose a tad and be fine. It's a common thing to do, either to open up shadows a bit, or to be safe (from underexposure) if shooting at aperture priority with a not so sophisticated meter.

>>3798910Yes, 100 is more like it.
>>3798921fuggg i will never find a good cheap eos
my olympus XA I enjoy using but it has bad fungus in the lens and the photos are affected especially in bright light. I'd buy another but they are legit over 100 dollars in good working condition. Recommend me a good similar and capable point and shoot that hasn't been skyrocketed in value by hipsters yet?
>>3799074Konica C35 is a neat little camera, no manual aperture but it is a rangefinder. (s2 and s3 variants are hipster'd but have a f1.8 aperture)Yashica Electro 35 FC and CC is a rangefinder with aperture priority, however it uses weird batteries that might be difficult to find.If you can forgo the rangefinder and go zone focusing, your options greatly increase with such bangers as the Konica C35 EF, Agfa Sensor Flash, Konica C35 EF3 and others I can't really think of now.
>>3798829Production cannot meet up with demand. So they are increasing the cost to fund an expansion to their production facility.>>3798879Yeah, I brought a Kodak Bullseye on a recent trip to the mountains. They're fun cameras. A step up from Holga's in build quality and usability while still being kinda shitty point and shoots. You don't need to respool 620 to 120, you can simply take some toenail clippers and trim the edges of the 120 spool so it fits in the camera (look it up). Here's my recommendation guy. The Kodak cameras are annoying because of their proprietary format. If you want to stick with the simpleness of a box camera pick up an Agfa B-2 for dirt cheap. If you want -slightly- more features a classic folder from certo6.com is cool.
>>3799089Lmao imagine recommending a yashica 35 in the year 2021
>>3799124lmao imagine shooting film in [current year]
>>3799110I know of the clipper trick, and it works in some models, but not in mine nor most of the Brownies. The flanges of the 620 spool, in addition to being smaller in diameter, are also thicker, making the whole spool slightly longer than 120 so that it won't fit mechanisms without spring-loaded film holders -- like my Target 620. I would have to sand down the ends of the spool in addition, which is probably more trouble than it's worth and, I'd suspect, could easily end up damaging the film.I'll keep my eye out for that Agfa but I like my Target. Very cool classic look, and I've heard it's the best Brownie model.

im shooting hp5+ at 3200 because that's what i have fuck you which developer should i use if i want the shittest most high contrast grainey edgelord results?
before i waste a bunch of film and do it anyways, im wondering what fomapan 100 would look like being pushed 5 stops to 3200? it looks like its a lot more common to push fomapan 400 and i haven't seen many samples of people pushing the 100.
>>3799206Shit. I did it with Shanghai gp3 once years ago. It has good image quality funnily enough but there was backing paper marks on the film (but not on non pushed rolls). I’d say maybe try gp3 400 if you want a cheap faster film, foma is good at losing speed isn’t it.
>>3799199Rodinal for the grain and some contrast. HC-110 or ilfotec hc or lc29 for the contrast and still grainy. In hc110 you should be able to increase the time a bit more for more contrast too, it should not shoulder as hard as other developers.
>>3799206This is Fomapan 100 pushed to 1600 and HC110 stand dev for two hours. I'm not sure I'd do it again. I think I'd max out pushing Foma 100 to 800 and not go much further than that.[EXIF data available.

Ever wonder whether you should keep shooting film?I don't find myself doing it as much as digital because I always either need a higher ISO than what's in my cameras or I don't feel like shooting B&W when I have color, or vice versa.Then I feel like buying more cameras so I can shoot more types of film at once, but I don't know if that's logic or just me lusting after sexy old film cameras.And part of me worries that it's unsustainable because I could buy a bunch of these cameras and films could just keep getting discontinued and then I've got things that are worthless. The future really is digital and you can get film-like results if you use bullshit like vsco presets.But yeah, I dunno. What say you guys.[EXIF data available.

>>3799240holy shit dude you're blowing my mind right now
I have a Tri -X 400 that I purchased back in 2016/2017. It has been stored in its plastic cylinder, in a mason jar with a seal in my fridge at 2-3 C this whole time. It will still produce good photos, right?
>>3798259This person looks awfully familiar... upstate NY?
>>3799199That your pic? Looks sick.Just curious though, after pushing the film that far how much does the developer matter? If I were to do that and take it to a lab (dont know what chems and process they use) would the end result still be cool?
>>3799261If you need more than iso 800 indoors, you need to turn on the light, my dude>You can use VSCO and it's like filmOh nvm you're an idiot
>>3799286This is iso400 indoor, just a ceiling lamp and a candle on the table.How can you constantly need higher iso than what you have in cam?Forget the bullshit of digital shooting at 6400 or over, film behaves much better
>>3799274Yes lolI shot something like 10 years old that definitely was not stored in a fridge or anything and it gave me some of my favorite shots
>>3799241Yeah it is quite small and the rangefinder patch is pretty dim. Haven't used it properly yet, and this is my first rangefinder, need to get a roll of film to try it out, I'll let you know how I get on when I try it.
>>3797855Everything else being equal, which produces a picture of higher perceived acquity / sharpness at internet resolution, something around 8mpx, a regular 6x9 lens like fujis EBC coated lenses or a high end 35mm lens from Leica or contax? The answer seemed obvious but after shooting multiple formats for a while, I'm not so sure anymore. My 35mm shots with modern glass seem sharper than old tlr 6x6 frames, but I'm wondering if luxury glass really is that special.
>>3799194This needs like +5 of magenta
>>3799306If we are talking Instagram resolution aka 1080*1080, what people perceive as "quality" is separation, or "pop", which Leica lenses seem to excel at.Are they worth 5000? No
>>3798202>my first film camerashoot literally anything try all the stuff
>>3797996film is going to die when it's finally the year of linux desktop
>>3799284>how much does the developer matter?i dunno>If I were to do that and take it to a labthe lab i go to charges extra per stop you push. so if i wanted them to do anything fun or risky it would feel wasteful. maybe ill develop my film in vietnamese coffee after this other anon suggested it >>3799261>Then I feel like buying more cameras so I can shoot more types of film at oncei came to this same conclusion fairly quickly. luckily i enjoy film for its imperfections and old cameras (see konica, fed, zorki) are cheap
>>3799306>Everything else being equal, which produces a picture of higher perceived acquity / sharpness at internet resolution, something around 8mpx, a regular 6x9 lens like fujis EBC coated lenses or a high end 35mm lens from Leica or contax?There's no chance any 135 format lens, from Leica or Zeiss or whoever, is gonna match a "modern" (80's) medium format lens. It's not even close. Chasing resolution in 35mm with high end, expensive lenses is a fool's errand. Many times you can buy a whole medium format system just with the price difference between a "good" and "great" lens in 35mm.When you resize a lot, this becomes less visible. At 8MP, realistically, 35mm is resized by a factor of 1.5-2x at most. Grain is still visible and most of the detail the film can give you is still there. Maybe you perceive that grain definition as acuity.At 8MP, a medium format frame is resized 4-5x at least. Resolution is lost, and grain is not visible, making for a smoother look.I suggest try different sharpening parameters or resizing algorithms for the MF frames, to get the look that you want. For instance a good MF scan, say at 3600dpi, and resized with Lanczos at 8MP is extremely sharp.
>>3797865Would you share STEP files for this? Could remix it easier to use different lens mounts. Don't want to buy a helical mount from china.
Saw this set for sale, what its its approx worth? Mamiya 646 1000s with 35mm, 80mm and 150mm. Including a handle and a flash. Current bid is 650... looked up the lenses but I think total worth is at around 700. Am I correct?

>>3799240>>3799265reading more about developing with coffee and it sounds like this would probably suck balls at pushing the film more than a stop or so. my current edgelord routine is to push like 2-3 stops
>>3799372What do you mean? I've never done it before but know it's possible.
>>3799375im just googling with my fat here. a good developer will be more selective in cucking the exposed/unexposed crystals on the film. so a lot of chemical solutions can do this and result in some image, but a shitty one will be less selective about which parts of the image get cucked. increase development time in order to "push" the film to a higher iso, and you end up with an extremely thin negative. that's my googlefat understanding anyway
>>3799375SO IN CONCLUSION results with coffee will vary more as you push it far past the films box speed
>>3799377>>3799378im trying to find example shots where caffenol was used to push the film like 3 stops. hp5+ 400 @ 3200 with actual developer is pretty dank
>>3799241just get contacts lmao
>>3799274I'd say you only really need to start worry about quality loss after like 15-20 years, and even then most of the time you can fuck around with exposure and development a bit and get fine results. Old expired film also certainly has a cool look to it.
>>3799366You would be happier with a 645 pro/80 combo for the same price imho.
>>3799306>higher perceived acquity / sharpnesswhatever that means
>>3799380I see I see, a guy In here (https://www.photrio.com/forum/threads/pushing-with-caffenol-c.29800/) did 200, 400 and 800 in caffenol-c
>>3799392those results are pretty impressive
>>3799228Foma’s box speed is overrated compared to other films
>>3799395Is it a problem with all their films or only the 400? I just shot some 200.
I've got two packs of this and a working super8 camera. How can I develop this on my own? I'm guessing the color chems are long gone, but can I still do black and white?
>>3799397I tried developing Kodachrome double 8 as black+white in caffenol once. Was a disaster.It is possible to get results though.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9v0uKLvr0Bc&ab_channel=ZeroBudgetFilmSchool

How important is the mirror damper in an SLR? does it affect anything but the sound? i thought about replacing the light seals on my SLRs but honestly I dont wanna fiddle around the ground glass and mirror if its not necesarry
>>3799391Easiest way I can explain the difference is that you develop two rolls of bw film, one in a high acuity developer like rodinal and the other in a solvent developer like ilfosol. The "pop" is different.
>>3799414It also reduces shake and vibration
>>3799460but it doesnt affect the images directly, does it? like in form of light leaks or any weird casts or glows
>I just shot some 200The 200 is excellent and its box speed very accurate.The 200 is what came out of Foma's attempt to make tabular grain film (like Tmax, Delta, etc.). They didn't quite succeed, but they didn't fail either; they got quite a high percentage of pure t-grains in the emulsion to call it a "proper" tabular grain film. But they didn't get a high percentage of some "inbetween" type of grains, in triangular and hexagonal shape.Long story short it behaves kinda inbetween a traditional cubic grain film, and a t-grain film in most aspects.For instance it takes longer to fix than traditional grain films, lust like most t-grain films do, but not as long as say Tmax. Also, usually traditional grain films get a speed increase in diafine, while t-grain ones a decrease, fomapan 200 stays right on the spot. And so on, you get the point.It's very sharp and high resolving, officially at 110lp/mm (Tmax 100 is 120lp/mm, Tmax 200 is 100lp/mm). Grain is fine, finer than traditional cubic grain films, a bit coarser than pure t-grain films.Speed is bang on and it's flexible, for pushing and pulling.All in all really nice film, for a great price.10/10, would recommend.[EXIF data available.

>>3799471So all the different Foma films are actually different films and not just the same thing at different speeds? Didn't know that. Thanks for that info though, good to know
>>3799461It could affect focus if the mirror falls too low
>>3799471same his ass is cut off
>>3799518>So all the different Foma films are actually different films and not just the same thing at different speeds?Yeah of course, each one is a unique emulsion. The 100 and 400 are traditional grain films. Those are the ones whose speeds are a bit "optimistic".
>>3799286>If you need more than iso 800 indoors, you need to turn on the light, my dudeMy friends and family like it dark, I dunno why. It's always ISO 3200 conditions indoors. If you're shooting a still life like >>3799287 then it doesn't matter, but if you need your shutter to freeze motion of people, then it becomes a problem.>Oh nvm you're an idiotYes I am.>>3799336I decided to do it. I bought another film body. That way I can have color and B&W at the same time and different ISOs. Fuck it, I'm going in.
>>3799572>I dunno why. It's always ISO 3200 conditions indoors.Usually, I think most normally-to-low lit indoors you can get by with ISO800 and f/2 at 1/30 or so. It would have to be deliberately dim to need more than that. Which might be the case as you're saying. Also 1/30 is the limit shooting people that are holding a pose for a second. 1/60 and above if they're moving around even a small amount.
>>3799414I've read that if you let the mirror cushion just break down, little bits will come off and potentially get stuck on the mirror and/or find their way into other parts of the camera's internals and fuck shit up.
>>3799647Old foams turn into this black powder when you touch them. That stuff does not wash off even from your fingers good luck with your focusing screen or internals.

hello!I wanna buy some Fomapan 100 since it's the cheapest black and white film I can get, and some chems do develop it at home. What chems should I get for it? If I understood correctly, I need a developer, stopper and a fixer. I'm mainly buying from fotoimpex, what can I get from there to develop it?
>>3799572>>My friends and family like it dark, I dunno why. It's always ISO 3200 conditions indoors.because your camera wants to make everything 18% grey.But if the room is dark, let it be dark.Let blacks be blacks and lights be lights, and you can use iso 800.

>>3800862>any reccs for K mount stuffwhy not dive down the youtube rabbit hole, wallowing in epidermic grease and sadness to your inevitable death in a deeply post capitalist dystopian solitude
>>3800897cause I figured i'd ask people who actually use lenses and dont just buy em for a vid and resell em
>>3800894Is there a term for that spherical bokeh in this image?
>>3800902Most call it swirly bokeh
Why are my scans coming out like this? This is probably the worst example but they're generally grainy and muddy.Using a plustek 8100, scanning in silverfast as hdr raw positive DNGs with current settings:>format17.28x12 inch>presetPhoto Quality 1>res. 3600ppi>gamma gradation2.20>autosharpnesstickedThen converting in Negative Lab following the instructions on the readme.
>>3800917don't know about gamma but I scan raw tiffmake sure you use 24bit rgb, no more no less
>>3800902>>3800903they also look soap-bubbley to me, which is another fun term to describe the contents of my mouth
>>3800917>>autosharpnessi don't know any about anything but maybe i wouldn't tick this
Gotta love those Fuji film tones from David Lynch's Twin Peaks S1what's the modern equivalent?Cinestill doesn't come close
>>3800921It's ticked by default, desu I didn't notice it until now so never played around with it.
>>3800833What's crazy about his photographs? It looks like some NPC discovered rule of thirds, centred framing and now he can't think outside of framing his shots outside of this stale bullshit.
>>3800929>>What's crazy about his photographs?zoomers are amazed at film shooters taking photos and moving on without chimping on their screen if they "got" the shot or not
>>3800925Lynch pissed on larping nostalgia faggots like you with 3 season. Modern equivalent of this is Season 3 of Twin Peaks in which Lynch used digital tools.
>>3800931haven't watched yet
>>3800931>larping nostalgia faggotsI happen to be born before this show aired, kid
>>3800930>BRO IT'S SHOT ON FILM SO IT'S MUST BE GOOD BECAUSE THIS IS REAL PHOTOGRAPHY MY FAV YT FILM E-CELEB SAID SO NOW I FUCKING HATE MY DIGITAL CAMERA BRO THIS AIN'T REAL PHOTOGRAPHY I am totally sick of these retards.
>>3800933>being 30+ and still on 4chan congratulations on completely failing at life
>>3800936>>>being 30+ and still on 4chan >congratulations on completely failing at lifeI'm at workMy wife is baking a cake at home (remote work)enjoy your teens/20s, kid, it's nice to be young and free
>>3800937is "you are here forever" true? early 20s are totally horrible. i have picked up photography to avoid my suicide brooding.
>>3800940>early 20s are totally horribleYou're doing it wrong
>>3800940>is "you are here forever" true?I'm here since 2007 or 8, so...
>>3800833>This guyHi, this guy. Nice try at self promotion. Try it again and see what happens.
>>3800946There is no "doing it wrong" when this life itself is wrong. >Imagine a number of men in chains, all under sentence of death, some of whom are each day butchered in the sight of the others; those remaining see their own condition in that of their fellows, and looking at each other with grief and despair await their turn. This is an image of the human condition.― Blaise Pascal, Pensées>>3800953Shit
>>3800963death, or rather, mortality, is the only thing giving life meaning.
>>3800965I agree with you. But high awareness of death sucks any meaning of it.
>>3800967depression (the real, clinical one) is a bitch
>>3800968True.>It is a level of psychic pain wholly incompatible with human life as we know it. It is a sense of radical and thoroughgoing evil not just as a feature but as the essence of conscious existence. It is a sense of poisoning that pervades the self at the self's most elementary levels. It is a nausea of the cells and soul. It is an unnumb intuition in which the world is fully rich and animate and un-map-like and also thoroughly painful and malignant and antagonistic to the self, which depressed self It billows on and coagulates around and wraps in Its black folds and absorbs into Itself, so that an almost mystical unity is achieved with a world every constituent of which means painful harm to the self. Its emotional character, the feeling Gompert describes It as, is probably mostly indescribable except as a sort of double bind in which any/all of the alternatives we associate with human agency — sitting or standing, doing or resting, speaking or keeping silent, living or dying — are not just unpleasant but literally horrible.― David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest
>>3800968depression is a bitch regardless of the fact that you got a pice of paper from a shrink saying that you are "clinically" depressed. being a mental illness the difference isnt stark at all, unless you are drawing a comparision between depression and whatever is now "cool" to be affected by according to zoomer media.
>>3801045>unless you are drawing a comparision between depression and whatever is now "cool" to be affected by according to zoomer media.yes that's what I was going at
>>3800972why do you keep posting this picture?
>>3800827Post your top tier GS645 photos then
>>3801061This is the second time I've seen it, though it is quite depressing.
>>3799140because the pentax lenses might be better then the mamiyos
>>3800862200mm f/2.5 is pretty neat, great color and sharpness, but dont pay more than you would from modern glass. A big beast though.I own the 50mm 1.7 and the 50mm 1.2. Both have a great look to them, altough wide open the 1.2 is on the soft side. But I have not shot any other 1.2 to compare it with either. Tried the 1.4, it was softer than the 1.2 wide open so I went with the 1.2 for twice the money. 200 eurobucks.
>>3800931And everyone hated it
>>3801081I dont own one, I like WLF more than rangefinder.
>>3801126Oh so you've never shot one cool
>>3801109this seems like a compelling argument that it literally doesnt matter
>6x6>6x7Do people here have a strong opinion about either size?
Recently bought an Albinar Ms-2 which is a re-badged Chinon CM-5. How bad did i do for $50?
>>3800833guys what if i took a picture of.... someone taking a picture!
>>38012086x7 (4x5/8x10) is the chad format6x6 is okay for portraits, I guess?
>>3801208I hate squares for composition, 6x7 is a great ratio in both orientations
would be nice if at least one of you dumb faggots fighting about MF formats had a picture to your names. you people are unironically worse than digital gearfaggots, at least they take pictures of their dogs or something[EXIF data available.
