Here is a sample of compared viewfinders (film vs. digital). I wonder, when a consumer dSLR will have at least a K1000's viewfinder.
Unfortunately, the site is only in romanian, but the pictures are pretty relevant !


In the table are some cameras (the column "Aparat" - where the LX is written I think it means Pentax LX with FE1 prism, ofr example -, "Magnify"= column "Marire", "Coverage"=column "Acoperire"), mostly Pentax-es (LX, MX, MX-S, K10D...) but Canon 350D too.

Some tips about working with a monopod:

That's true, but that is also true for JPEG and for films that went through darkroom development, isn't it?
A wrong temperature during the negative development process and the colours are different.

Anyway, thanks for the interesting link!

submitted by vilva ( The effect of the AA filter )
Here is an illuminating test concerning the difference between a stock Nikon D200 and a modified one with the AA filter removed:


I wonder if a conversion of an existing 5D is possible.

Sure, see http://www.maxmax.com/hot_rod_visible.htm ,

but I don't think you'd like the Moire Smile

Two sites for beginners (and for the experienced user still nice to read, esp. the second one.)

Lens angle of view calculator - also works offline if you save the webpage.

Enter the number "6" in each of the width and height fields for 6 x 6 medium format etc.


Exposure calculator for use with extension tubes and convertors - handy for those still using cameras with no TTL metering.
