comment Why the trend of faded vintage photography?
nope, most of those images are taken using crappy phone cameras and tortured like that in order to hide how crappy they are. Make them look "artsy" to hide the terrible lighting, horrid constrast, and frighteningly bad focusing.

And don't forget that of that 90%, 90% is taken using crappy cellphone cameras with the phone held at arm's length (and likely over someone's head)...

comment I tried to use the “Sunny 16 rule” but it didn't work, why?
indeed. First image has a lot more detail in it, second "pops" nicely but seems overexposed with blown out highlights.

comment Should I expect better results from more expensive variable ND filters?
@PhilipKendall no, they were graduated density filters. Fixed gradient though.

comment What limits the size of digital imaging sensors?
@Joe that's a side effect of the lens you put in front of the sensor not generating perfectly parallel rays all across the sensor face, not a problem with the sensor itself. You could get around that by making your lenses (and your image circle) that much wider, increasing weight, size, and thus cost of your system even more.

comment what is the barriers of making fast lenses?
and don't forget that more and/or thicker elements means there's less light reaching the film/sensor, and coatings make that even worse. While glass is pretty transparent, it's not 100% transparent. Coatings eat even more into that light budget. So those massively thick and heavy elements, through which light travels at oblique angles, can yield a very dark image. Whether that becomes a problem before abberations become too much to correct for I don't know, would in part of course depend on the materials used.

@Raddfood why do you think it can be fixed, especially a "quick fix"? Replacing it is the quickest way to get a working camera again...

comment What ISO do I shoot Ilford Delta 3200 in?
@MichaelStum I've not shot Delta3200 in a loooong time, but when I did I shot it at 3200 (or maybe 1600 and had it pushed, my camera at the time might not have supported 3200, was like 20+ years ago).
