I’m rescanning a bunch of Kodachrome because for some reason the last time I scanned them I did it at a very low resolution. This one is out of the Olympus Stylus Epic. Flare much? 😀

When someone askes a question and I know they cross-post to several services, I don’t know where to respond, so I often don’t. I should probably just pick one, but it feels weird.

On the other hand, I do have a battery adapter for use in the OM-1n. The voltage is different, so the meter usually underexposes but I compensate by changing ISO settings. This one’s been around. Leicas aren’t the only camera that “brass” over time. Love this thing.

I’ll probably retire the Canonet. It’s those Mercury batteries sealing its fate. There are workarounds for the battery, or I could shoot it meterless, but nah. Awesome lens though.

I’m glad I don’t like Blackwing pencils because this looks like a fun collection (for sale): twitter.com/BetterRes…

I’m tired of hosting so much stuff. baty.blog/2021/no-y…

Just finished (re)reading Dune. Last time was in the early 90s, I think. I still love it.

They are not the same thing, and will never be the same thing

I used to have a Nikon F6 and the feature I miss most is that it imprinted exposure/date information in the space between frames. Like analog exif data.

I can’t decide if this is beautiful or terrifying. (Not my camera, Posted by Peter)

Friends got a new puppy, Charlie (aka Chuck). Bulldogs are adorable.

I prefer the Sennheiser HD 650 Headphones to the Apple AirPods Max in every way other than when wireless is the most/only important feature. The 650s sound better, are more comfortable, never connect to the wrong thing, and the batteries never die. I didn’t expect this.

This will probably be the last roll I put through the Autocord. copingmechanism.com/2021/from…

I don’t love 28mm lenses, but I love the little GR III in spite of its wide, 28mm lens. Apparently there’s a GR IIIx coming with a 40mm (equiv) lens and I’ll be trading my GR in the minute the new one ships. http://news.ricoh-imaging.co.jp/rim_info2/2021/20210908_031102.html

Maybe we should finally abandon the silly Comic Sans hate cult pile-on now? What’s Wrong With Comic Sans?

Today’s pairing: A rough-around-the-edges 1962 Minolta Autocord and Kodak BW400CN (C-41) film that expired in 2006. My expectations are appropriately lowered.

How did I not know about the Mystery Flesh Pit? mysteryfleshpit.tumblr.com. This is what the internet is for.

The band (of Leica M cameras) is back together, now that my M4 has been repaired and overhauled. copingmechanism.com/2021/the-…

Using strobes with film is challenging. I metered this thoroughly and it’s still underexposed. I still like it, though. (Leica M6. Portra 400. Self-processed)
