#57 When Fungus Attacks with Lyndon Booth

This week Lyndon of Londinium Cameras joins us to talk about classic lens repairs, none of that autofocus rubbish here! Lyndon gives out lots of advice which largely translates into don't try this at home, get an expert to do it instead. If that's not put you off, take a listen to Lyndon taking about stuck apertures, seized helicoids and the F word...

Top mint bantz, lads Like 1 .


I really enjoyed that. Some myths busted, others put into context, and some good tips thrown in.


Marks off for not letting Lyndon tell his "radioactive" story though. Waited all interview for that so I did.

#58 The Hong Kong Scene With Perry Ge
March 4th, 2019

Karl is "working" again this week, but fear not, Simon & Johnny are joined by Hong Kong classic lens photographer, Perry Ge. Get the lowdown on lens dealers that don't want to sell you anything and offer advice instead. A hugely varied podcast this week with discussions covering Dallmeyer, Frankenstax, Hasselblad Xpan, Fan Ho and snoring on a podcast...

^Might have to give that one a *Top Mint +*. Is there any chance you can make Perry Ge your Hong Kong correspondent? He has the gift of the gab, and being able to give overviews of 'the scene' always requires a considerable knowledge to fall back on.


Cheers Like 1 I enjoyed that.

A really interesting podcast fellas - thank you once again.
I think that we can all relate to Perry's question about what makes us choose one lens over another and the consensus that you all arrived at - the shooting experience is every bit as important as the result.
The joy of photography resides not just in the outcome but in the journey as well.
Hong Kong sounds like a mecca for shooters using classic lenses - must go there one day Smile
Thanks again
Tom

#59 When Podcasts Go Bad And Budget Lenses Are Good

Just like the song Tribute by Tenacious D, what you are about to hear is the greatest podcast ever. Tribute. Despite trying to blame Ethan Moses, Simon screwed up royally this week and the entire budget lens spectacular episode was even more incomprehensible than usual. Not to be put of by losing two hours of the best podcasting ever made, the dynamic trio set about recording it again in half the time and with more attitude...

Podcast #58 w/ Perry Ge hit home for me and definitely one of the best Classiclens podcasts!

Keep doing what you are doing

Can you guys post the list of budget lens you recommend per focal length from the recent podcast.

Agreed. Perry should be a regular.

And Simon, maybe consider getting a Podcasting recorder that has a realtime levels meter and an SD card backup? No more lost podcasts.

The RODECaster Pro is getting great reviews. Records internally to an SD card and / or outputs to a computer at the same time. Also supports cell-phone call ins and Skype without the need for a computer.

I'm sure Perry will return!

Olinask, I took a look at the Rodecaster Pro, and we are a long way off being pro enough to afford one! We are going to double up on the recording so if my recording fails then Johnny should have a backup.

#60 Catching Up

After last week's disaster, we take some time out to catch up with the classic lens related things we've been getting up to recently, so as usual, many topics are covered. Johnny is forced to justify (again) why the Canon 50mm f/1.8 LTM is a "Budget" lens, a listeners email leads to a conversation about how different lenses work on different sensors, and Simon has his drink spiked shortly before being interviewed at The Photography Show by the Sunny 16 Podcast.

PODCAST THEME

Good luck with the new camera Karl. You mentioned Astia, so here's a custom setting you could play with -

Planar design lens.
Astia

Highlights +1
Shadows +1
Colour -2
Everything else 0


It's all subjective, and may not be your cup of tea, but it's fun to try them, no?


[Remember not to use a 50 though, as they are all the same no matter what you do. Johnny says, and personally I believe him as he's famous. I stick on a 58/2 Biotar. Don't tell Johnny.]


Cheers.
