comment How do you remove a film back from a Mamiya 645 Super with no darkslide?
@dav1dsm1th Yea the 1st time I loaded that video I was like "Yes, this is it!" then I realized those are different film backs :p

comment What are the differences between a bridge camera and a DSLR?
As a Leica user I take umbrage at the idea that a 'DSLR' is a 'real camera' :) To say nothing of the rising star that is the Sony A7* line. DSLRs were certainly the king of the digital camera mountain for a long time but that isn't really the case anymore.

comment If I have an 85mm lens for portraits, is a 50mm useful as well?
@FreeMan Looking closely I believe the change is related to compression. Imagine he begins with the camera slightly off center at her shoulder to exacerbate the compression effect, at 24mm her nose/chin will be comically stretched but as you continue to step backwards (still off center) the off-centerness will become less pronounced and compression will flatten her face.

comment Understanding Lenses Focal Length with Converters
@MichaelClark Totally agree w/that compression etc only changes if you try to keep the FoV the same (by changing the distance from the camera to subject). But I think thats the relevant discussion since if somebody is talking about a specific composition, the sensor size/lens choice is going to impact getting that specific composition since its FoV related. Which leads to the misconception I mentioned because people will say "Sensor size has no impact on compression/etc" because they're talking about it academically as opposed to keeping a consistent composition.

comment Understanding Lenses Focal Length with Converters
@MichaelClark By 'magnification' I assume you mean 'field of view' and I think what you're mentioning is actually a misconception. If you shot a landscape image with a 16mm lens that included a bird on a fence post and a barn 100' behind it and did a 50x crop on it such that it had the same FoV as a 800mm lens that shot just the bird, the DoF, compression etc would look very different on the two. Time to get some samples ;)

Only insofar as the field of view, there are many other things 'focal length' is related to (depth of field, focal compression, etc) and those don't change as @MichaelT mentions

comment Do film emulation presets assume a certain white balance setting?
Ah, hrmph, I'll have to go look back at my scans and see if thats the case in the software too. Thanks for the suggestion!

comment Do film emulation presets assume a certain white balance setting?
Agreed. I would expect if I shoot with actual Portra 160 film, in different color temperatures, to result in different casts, and I'd expect a Portra 160 preset to do those same casts and thats what I want to happen. The problem is, as you see in my image example, the color cast isn't the same as actual Portra 160 film.
