    Stuck leaf

    Yesterday it looked like winter wonderland here. Very heavy wet snow fell which caused lot of outages. My power was out from 3am until about 9am. It was a crazy and stressful day but I managed to get out to take some photos. I know it's nothing special but I liked the way this leave was wedged...

    Mirror to the past

    I know this may not be my best photograph and that's okay. It has meaning to me even though it may look like a random photo, the reason it has meaning is that that day when I was photographing, I was having a very bad day and I kept thinking about the past and present. i know it's nothing great...

    Contax/Yashica adapter for Nikon Z Review

    It's been a busy last couple of months so I haven't spent much time here on the forums. Anyways I picked up this Yashica FX-2 at a flea market (more like a yard sale than anything) for $12 that I couldn't pass up. Came with a couple lenses too. The camera was in very rough shape but as you can...

    Just for fun - 50mm 1.8 S vs 35mm 1.8 S

    I was doing some lens testing betweens these too, nothing crazy but I was surprised how little difference there was. I'm a big fan of focusing up close with just about any lens because I feel like that's where the biggest differences are. I'm also trying to decide between them as I really don't...

    I don't like the way these look.

    I know this isn't the best photo I've taken and I'm not looking for a serious critique because its overall, a snapshot. I was about the head out the door for something and I really liked the way my cat, Luke, was laying in front of the door with his paws out front and the expression he had. So...

    More photos of Luke

    I liked the way he was laying on the bed, looked comfortable. If you think about it, cats have a pretty good life. Always fed, fresh water, endless toys, treats and scratching posts, litter box gets cleaned out. We really are slaves to them 🙃 Nikon Z6II + Z 50mm f/1.8 S

    Expose Your Roots

    I know it's not a good photo but I thought it was interesting to see the root system of this tree that's been exposed due to years of washouts from storms. Nikon Z6II + Z 50mm f1.8 S expose your roots by Nicholas Erwin, on Flickr

    Looking to purchase my first RF lens.

    Hey y'all, I am looking to get my first RF glass and I am either going to sell my EF50 1.2L and my 100mm F.28 L to fund an 85mm 1.2 RF or I can just sell the EF 50 and buy the 50 RF. If I go with the 85 RF I will only have my 35 1.4 L left over, and if I go with the 50mm RF I will have both the...

    Question on Portra400 film with Minolta film camera

    Hello! I recently purchased a Minolta Xg1 camera. I believe the lens I have is 50mm? Here are the details to my purchase: Minolta XG-1 camera with 50mm F1.7 MD-Rokkor-X and Vivitar 75-300mm F4.5/5.6 macro zoom and brand new Minolta 118X flash. I'm guessing I can't use portra400 film with these...

    Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 Macro Lens

    Found this little gem at Goodwill, yesterday. Pretty dirty and missing the caps. Had a Hoya UV filter on it, so it kept the front clean. But for the price, I couldn't pass it up. I've since cleaned it, and tested it out. It's really well constructed. Very surprised at how close you can focus...

    Harbour, low tide at night

    1. Stonehaven harbour at low tide by Mark Coull, on Flickr This is a photograph I took of where I stay that I have re-edited. I wanted to give it that peering through the trees at a sleepy town kinda feel. The top and bottom have been cropped. I'm happy with this edit. It was taken using a...

    Nifty fifty STM - focus issues, or human error?

    I have a question for users experienced with fast primes. Today, I tried to test AF with my 700D (T5i) and my two lenses: - EF-S 18-55mm 3.5-5.6 IS STM - EF 50mm 1.8 STM I noticed an issue with the 50mm. When I open up the aperture to the max, the AF jumps a bit on every other photo. But...

    Need Help Identifying Model of Argus Film Camera

    I found this Argus in an antique store the other day and was considering purchasing it. There were no clear model indicators on it and I haven't been able to find it online. The lens is a f/3.5 50mm Coated Cintar. If anyone knows the model, I'd greatly appreciate it!

    What prime next?

    Hi all So right now I have a 28, 50 and 85. I have a sad old D90. Unfortunately my second D7000 was stolen along with a Sigma 17-50 2.8 lens. That's about 700 euro gone. :( Anyway... I have a crop body and think I will always have one. I plan to get a D7100. They look great and nice price now...

I came down to the nikon 50mm 1.8 and the 35mm 1.8 however I'm still not entirely sure about the role the DX and FX frames play in the lens. Would I be wasting money to buy a FX...
