    My Fuji Microfine developer turned yellow after roll of Rollei IR400, why?

    Newbie to film development - advice needed - mediocre results

    Hi everyone. I've shot only digital for a few years but have started experimenting with film. I bought a cheap development tank and have started to develop (and then scan) my own black and white film. The results are OK, but not the same as the same film I had done by a lab. My negatives are...

    What would be a decent, cheap, used, film SLR to get?

    I've only ever shot digital and feel like experimenting with a few rolls of B&W film just for the heck of it. I also need something to keep me busy while I send my DSLR into Nikon for service because it's shutter is starting to stick! I was looking at a used camera web site, but I have no clue...

    Whitebalancing infrared - no software can go as cool as Rawshooter

    I'm having some issues that I can't quite explain when it comes to whitebalancing photos in Rawshooter and Adobe's Camera RAW when I open .nef files from my Nikon D50. I shoot a lot of infrared with a Hoya R72 filter. I shoot in RAW mode with my D50 and the images are extremely red saturated...

    Displaying candid photos on a web site

    I was on vacation at the beach last week and took a few candid shots of people playing in the waves and a few children playing in the sand and on the beach. Naturally, without a signed release these photos can't ever be used for anything (nor would I want to use them for anything as I was just...

    Cheap flash recommendation for D50

    I did some forum searching and reading and everyone keeps talking about expensive Nikon flashes for use with a D50. I am on a tight buget and want to get a flash for my D50.

    Industrial infrared

    I haven't shot any infrared for a while, so I went out on a long drive through a valley with a lot of steel mills and power plants looking for good industrial things to try to get good IR photos of. I was REALLY happy with this shot. The long exposure + infrared combine to create a very neat...

    Infrared-Green-UV instead of RGB

    I've been wanting to experiment with this ever since I saw a color photo taken by NASA's Cassini orbiter (http://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov) of Saturn that was taken using infrared, green, and ultraviolet rather than red-green-blue. I took 3 photos (infrared, visible, ultraviolet) then mapped (a...

    Does SD card speed matter with a Nikon D50?

    I'm very close to buying a Nikon D50 and I'll need to buy an SD card with it. Would I notice any tangible difference between a "normal" SD card versus something like a Sandisk Ultra? Will a faster SD card really translate into faster shots or is the speed at which the camera can take shots...
