A quick view of oldblokeh's recent activity.

  • Lily by mammarazzi

    Very reminiscent of child portraits of the 1950s, and all the better for that. Who needs colour when you have images such as this?

  • One hundred and ninety four to go.. by oldblokeh

    Thank you, all. It's much appreciated. It was one of those rare occasions (rare for me, at any rate) when I knew exactly what I wanted to capture beforehand. Happily, the weather cooperated.

  • The Last Supper. by Nick_w

    Another fine example of your work, Nick. I hope you find yourself back in the mood soon, as I think you are one of the most inspiring and creative people on the site.

  • Model Triumph by Johnd83

    This is a very well executed shot. It's sharp, well lit and perfectly exposed. The monochrome treatment works, too.

  • Smokin' hot chilli. by oldblokeh

    Hi Keith. Yes, double boiled water. Part of the problem is that the freezer is too cold, I think. Oddly enough, I already had the NH4 and HCl, plus the protective gear to handle the 1.4 million Scoville chilli... Grin

  • Flavour explosion by oldblokeh

    Thanks for the comments. Smile

    My first choice would have been a reflective black surface. Unfortunately the white table was the only pineapple-juice-proof surface available. I must spend a few pennies on materials...

    I learned quite a lot doing the shot. At least I got lucky by capturing a decent splash on only the fourth attempt.

  • Mustang 2 by TrevorPlumbe

    Good capture, nicely exposed. I'd prefer a little more prop blur, so it might be worth practising those panning skills... Smile

    They're having a laugh, surely. 120 for an extra eyepiece lens to correct for your eyesight, something that other manufacturers build in as standard to their viewfinders. Moreover, I wonder what proportion of these will still be working in 25 years time, compared with their mechanical ancestors. In that respect, I can't see them being a sensble investment from a collector's perspective.

    {Sigh...}

    That should be "compatibility" and "compatible", not "compatability" and "compatable".

    Oh no! Not another new format! Micro four thrids ?

    308? are you sure about that? As a grey import, maybe, but shouldn't you be quoting UK prices?

  • Posted on: Tokina Reflex 300mm MF Macro Lens Review

    Since Tokina describe this as a macro lens, why on earth did you not post any macro shots for us to look at, especially since this is currently the cheapest M43 macro lens on offer, by far?

  • Posted on: New Program Enables Deblurring Of Photos

    It certainly gives impressive results with an image where all of if has about the same degree of blurring. Unfortunately, if the image also contains sharp detail, that detail is lost/distorted. I'm sure improved algorithms are on the way, though, that could preserve sharp areas.

  • Posted on: Samyang 7.5mm f/3.5 UMC Fisheye Lens Review

    f/0.0 for the test images? Surely some mistake, unless the Koreans have invented a lens with infinite aperture. Grin

    Quote: "The MPA will be working more closely with the Master Photographers Association after creating a partnership."

    That's a bit narcissistic, isn't it?

    "Condensation on your lens can occur when you take your camera from a warm environment, such as your home or car, into a cold environment like the outdoors on a frosty morning."

    This is repeated every time, but that doesn't make it correct. Condensation will occur when you bring your camera from a cold environment into a warm one, NOT THE OTHER WAY ROUND.

    Condensation can form on your lens outside once it has cooled down, but it won't form while it is warmer than its surroundings.

    In Schmidt camera mode that telescope is a 3300mm f/3.1, so it's quite a fast instrument. Even so, magnitude 10 at 60 fps is quite an achievement. The faintest stars you'll see with the naked eye in an urban environment are about magnitude 4. That's 250 times brighter, or about 8 stops. The higher the magnitude number the fainter, for those not familiar with astronomical stuff.

    Ah! I've finally figured it out -- my brain must be slowing down with age. Organic glass = plastic.

    Organic glass? I nominate this as meaningless marketing fruitloopery of the month.

  • Posted on: Extension Tubes for Macro Photography

    I'd just like to comment that to claim that extension tubes or bellows change the focal length of the attached lens is completely wrong. Only zoom lenses have variable focal length. What extension tubes do is to alter the focal range, that is to say the range of distances from the front element that may be brought into focus.

  • Posted on: New 40mm DX-Format Macro Lens From Nikon

    I hope their design and manufacturing teams are more competent than their marketing department. What on earth is a "focal plain"? Hint to Nikon: it's "focal plane".
