Apparently no one has mentioned the reciprocity error (Schwarzschild effect) when measuring for film, and it's probably the only things OP should be concerned about. I'm actually surprised Philip Kendall suggesting there is little difference in 't-stops' when this is actually the only HUGE difference between the two. You see, the response of the digital ...
Yes, you can use a digital camera to take test shots in much the same way pros used Polaroid backs for many years. Just keep in mind that both film ad digital have some leeway with regard to ISO. Many digital cameras can be 1/2 stop or more less sensitive than they claim for a particular ISO. One of the things DxO Mark tests is actual sensitivity for each ...
You can indeed use a DSLR to help improve your film photography skills. At the very least, you can use the DSLR to meter, and determine what your exposure settings and ISO need to be, assuming you use an identical lens. It should be noted that if you use a film SLR, it is probably 35mm format. Most DSLR cameras these days are APS-C, or cropped frame. ...
So, absolutely you can do that. In some ways you're suggesting a similar approach to the old polaroid and medium format professional shooting. Basically, the photographer would take a polaroid shot to confirm light, shadows, and general scene before shooting with the big camera. It's always more expensive to get back to the darkroom and discover that you ...
To a very good approximation: yes, assuming you've done the obvious and set your DSLR ISO to whatever film speed you're using. The definition of "ISO" is the same for film and for digital. There are a number of reasons why you might not get exactly the same exposure between the digital and film setups: ISO 200 (or whatever you're using) might not be ...
Yes. Although, as mentioned most cameras will require some modification. With a Physical Mask The low pass filter on the sensor could be augmented to cast a shadow on the sensor. The easiest way I could imagine doing this would be a metal vapor deposition onto the glass followed by a photolithography and etching process to remove the undesired metal. The ...
In a word, no. Cameras don't generally have this feature built in, however there are ways of automating post processing tasks so that watermarks are applied when software downloads the image without the user having to perform any extra steps, it just depends what software you have
Yes depending on what camera you have. Did you read the manual?
It all usually depend on your style and your budget. I would probably use a 50mm (which give a field of view of 75mm because of crop factor) or 85mm (field of view of 127.5mm) prime either f1.4g or f1.8g for portrait. not sure on which lens for natural photography though. I think a circular polarization filter will help on natural photography.
