Quote: Perhaps this is more helpful. The lens records light and the sensor in the camera records the colour.
That's a clever trick. Where can I get one of those lenses that "records the light"?
I bought a lens recently which was advertised as being good for black & white as well as colour, but I can only get black from it. I don't understand since it doesn't have a glass front, just a black disc which says Nikon.
The version of the Nikon lens with the black disk only works in the Southern Hemisphere, so you may have to emigrate to South of the equator and use the Hoya 'Tartan' filter to retain colour banding if shooting near salt water.
Oh ****! The black front disc bit just fell off. have I broken it?
Snapbandit, I fully understand the reasons for the first part of your answer, but a tartan filter? Your having me on aren't you?
Trust me.... if you can get your hands on one it will make the world of difference.... would I spoof you? !!!
I've just found one on Amazon in 77mm, it's quite expensive at £1276, but I bought it anyway.
Note to self: How can I get a tartan overlay in photoshop to shut him up?
don't forget, only use it near salt water (in the Southern Hemisphere)
I've always found, the best way to get colour is to change the film.
The ones labelled C41 or E6 seem to work best.
I see the camera used is a digital one, that may be the problem. Fortunately the lens will fit some real cameras as well, so it may be worth testing it on a proper body with some colour film.
Hope that helps
I've heard about this new fangled plastic film. Is it like a sensor painted onto a plastic strip? I understand however it is only 24 x 36 pixels. I don't understand how you can get any quality out of it. I suppose if you have 36 replaceable sensors, you don't have to worry about keeping them clean.
I had one of those, but I couldn't get a cable for it, to upload onto my computer....it seems that when I'd taken arou d 40 shots, I took the film thingy out, but all the pictures I took were trapped inside and I had to get a man to extract them for me.
I used to get the pictures out of those myself ( needed a swiss army knife & a 7/8" spanner though ).
(anyone else think this should really be in the "Light Hearted Chat" forum, before someone with 'authority' locks it! )
I have obviously misunderstood. I thought you just opened the tin and held the plastic up to the light and you could see the pictures.
Guys...I bought a 400mm lens...but i cant take pictures with it..where exactly is the shutter button?
