Fantastic colour and tele shot Graham. Old slides may be, but the outcome is so awesome.

thanks again Marketa!

and thanks Manoo - good to hear from you :) - film still has a sort of magic that digital doesn't always quite match somehow


Manoo Mistry on September 6, 2009

:), absolutely Graham the fun with creativity you had with 35mm, digital just does not match up. Even at 12 milllions pixels to me all you see is squares..:). But must admit, digital is lot lot easier and dead cheaper to mess around with.

here here Magic10 but i do miss my 35mm just wish they could make it compatible with digital so i could use the old gear and have the modern convenience. top shot Graham what camera where you using. steve

Manoo Mistry on September 9, 2009

Yes Steve, all those cameras, telephoto/wide angle lenses etc.. which are gathering dust on the shelf. Even cokin filters are useless in a way as you can do all the fancy magic on a basic software.Well I hope, like you said that someone will come out with way of using all these old gears, or they will just get binned otherwise.

Regards Manoo

Hi Steve

hi Manoo

I have the (in this regard) advantage of using Pentax SLR's, so all my old lenses fit :))) - this was with a Pentax Z-1 plus 400mm lens,Steve - and I reckon there's still a place for an ND grad filter.

best regards to both :)

he was a very obliging model Blau Clemens, - and you have to get some pay-off for getting up before sun-rise to be on the road early ;D
