    Monitor Mode confusion

    Thanks, I get it now and I agree with the above. I had a chat with someone over at X-Rite. They said I would be best using the Native mode (calibrated) for everything given my work streams. Native is the maximum that the monitor can do, which in my case is 99% aRGB. When I export I will check...

    Monitor Mode confusion

    Thanks @droj but I'm still confused. I'm thinking I should be doing the following, but would like conformation or a pointer as to where I should change my work flow. For digital – Shoot RAW, Edit in Native monitor mode, export for printing and web use sRGB (using soft proof). For film – scan...

    Monitor Mode confusion

    Hi There, I'm getting a bit confused and I'm hoping someone can help me. I have a Dell 2713H monitor, an X-Rite i1 and the Dell UltraSharp calibration solution tool installed on the computer. The monitor has several modes and I don't know which one(s) I should be using for editing (Lightroom &...

    My Rome trip

    Thank you, I tried to get pictures of how I saw it rather than what I had seen on google. I took a chance going at the start of November, I lucked in with the weather, 21 pretty much all the time and only an hour or two of occasional cloud, other than that very sunny and just the right...

    Film and camera metering

    I ran a few tests, I thought that maybe scanning the negative frame might skew the reading but I don't think it does. I also compared the default range of 20-245 to my usual setting of 0-255, at the end I switched from a standard profile to the ektar profile. The ektar definitely brings out the...

    Film and camera metering

    I didn't think the camera would have an effect but I thought I best check just in case I was missing something blatant. The scanner I'm using is a Screen Cezanne Elite, I turn off all settings and only use the embedded profile for Ektar 100. I did look at getting a scanning profile for negative...

    Film and camera metering

    HI there, I'm wondering if someone can enlighten me. I recently shot some Ektar 100 with an Xpan and after scanning the negatives it seems that some have a funny tint (yellowish) which can be improved if I adjust the white balance in Lightroom. Can this be caused by cameras metering? I have...

    Peak Imaging - Thumbs up

    Just wanted to say how happy I am with the turnaround from Peak Imaging. I stuck a load of film in the post Tuesday dinner time and just got the processed negatives back this afternoon (Thursday). A very slick process and a reminder that when the post office works it really does work. I should...

    Midlands Chatsworth (this weekend)

    I'm not sure about the actual walk but I can easily spend a day in the Gardens alone (you have to pay to get in, of course there is also the house to explore, again you have to pay.)

    I saw the rack of large format frames they had in Mr Cad, scary looking but interesting.

    I need a new camera

    Bad news, I went in Mr Cad today and had a play with a Pentax 67, nowhere near as bad ergonomically as I had been led to believe.

    I need a new camera

    Cool, I will still buy more I can't help myself. I like the look of the M7 ticks quite a few boxes, not sure if the minimum focus distance would be an issue for me or not. How easy is it to focus?

    I need a new camera

    I ended up buying an Xpan with 45 and 90mm lenses. I’m not yet sure if it was a good choice or not. I’ve only managed to stick a couple of rolls through it due to a combination of constant awful weather and work. I think that it’s going to take a bit of getting used to and I have yet to see its...

    Metz 45 CL4 and Polaroid Land camera

    Thanks for the quick responses. @Phil V I am way over complicating things, something seems to have gone wrong in my understanding. @Sejanus Aelianus thanks but I was hoping to keep it simpler than that by using the auto mode. I do know that if I twist the dial on top of the flash it adjusts the...

    Metz 45 CL4 and Polaroid Land camera

    Hoping someone out there can help me understand how to use this flash in auto mode. The more I read the more I seem to get confused. I have a Polaroid 180 Land camera and a Metz 45 CL-4 flash. Normally I would experiment with various settings but the film is a bit to expensive to waste and...

    Processing my own black and white film

    I was very kindly given a few amazon vouchers for Christmas and I’ve read that it’s cheap and easy to process black and white film at home, so what are your thoughts on the following items? Would I need anything else apart from chemicals? Thanks...
