I know, but I'm quite pissed off by the changes everybody is doing on their file formats.

Recently my Office2021 stopped: buy Office365 with yearly costs, LR did the same, PS did the same, all to be renewed yearly. Annoying.

So I'm switching to freeware, such as OpenOffice and RawTherapee.

Harm, check out "www.licentiepromo.be" for a perpetual Office licence, fully legal and registration with Microsoft works very well and no ongoing yearly cost (and no updates either, which I think is a good thing)
You can see the April Foolishness 2023 exhibition here Another great show of the talent we have on Dyxum

Question to Dopol about day 10 and those beautiful straight lines but low shooting point. Was is processed in any way, or maybe you were not standing on the floor but somewhere higher?

I've been away from a PC for the last four days of last week, on a short break to the north of France. trying to catch up with the challenge in the last couple of days. Day 15 and 16 entries are from the same session, using the STF at portrait distances with Lizzy. It might sound as an excuse, but as these are portraits and lizzy's brown coat is kind of a difficult color and texture to get right sooc, some postprocessing was needed to make the most of them.

Thanks

It was a handheld shot while standing up, doing my utmost best to get all things level.
There was some correction necessary at the edges (where I cropped it a bit), but it was more or less straight, as can be seen here where I put the SOOC (only resized)

What an honour.
Would love to use it once for my one and only film so far . I guess the positioning of the film is more accurate than in my cardboard "El cheapo" version.

And the answer is ... 'No'. Both the 500si and 500si Super have a side bar in the viewfinder that conveys focus signals, shutter, aperture, etc.

Update: I suspect Minolta left this out because the viewfinder in the RD--175 is small owing to the 2x crop factor; I can barely read the panels in the film cameras as it is.

Apart from an experiment with a 720nm filter on an unconverted camera a couple of years back (worked but not a technique I ever felt the need to repeat), I had no experience with IR photography until yesterday. The previous day a converted Nex-5 arrived in the post and I spent some time working out why it wouldn't work with my A mount glass via an LA-EA4 (firmware update required). Having resolved this issue I was able to fit a lens that my 55mm dia 720nm filter fitted.

As my Foolishness lenses have 55mm filter threads I mounted the 35mm f2 and set out to take my Day 20 shots in IR on an unfamiliar camera without a proper viewfinder in bright sunlight - the foolishness quotient may not match the RD175 /1,000mm lens combo, but it was higher than I am accustomed to.

B&W conversions worked quite well, but channel swapping was less successful. I was just happy to get a shot I was prepared to share!

I thought that was new, Phil, and the result is impressive. Can you share the EXIF? I have used a 720nm filter on unconverted cameras and it's like a heavy ND filter and high ISO and slow shutter speeds are the order of the day. I have an old NEX-3, a spare NEX-7 and an old A100 that could be converted, but have baulked at the cost hitherto ...

@Phil Wood: Your Day 20 IR shot is not bad at all.
I'm no fan of IR (in general) but this one worked out very well.

Fully agree on Domien.


I made some shots not further away than the backyard. Tomorrow I'll try for some shots in Rotterdam (before I'm visiting the shop that is selling the A7RivA ).
Still undecided: Both A7iii and A7iv do meet my expectations of what I want in a camera, so I think selling the A7iii and purchasing an A7rivA may cause regret
