comment Is Ilford's XP2 Super film long-lasting enough for archival purposes?
@jrojasqu I also wanna add that there are other factors too, for one how you are storing your negs? in archival acid free files or not? are they stored in a humid place? .... archivability is really a huge subject that many people tried to tackle. In your case you have to bleach the color dyes and fix using Blix (C41) for proper fixing

comment How to cancel halfway Noise Reduction Process in Canon Rebel T3i?
@PhilipKendall that I was afraid to do, I thought of taking the battery or the memory card out but I was afraid that I would corrupt the memory card or burn some circuit inside the camera

comment Scanning old colour slides
please add more details about the scanner that you are using and what is the end goal. Also a sample of what you have if possible. Some software invert the scanned image based on the scanning configurations you have

comment Why did manufactures stop including DOF scales on lenses?
I don't understand what do you mean by " differences in megapixel counts and output sizes make the scale inaccurate anyway". Good news from Zeiss with the digital scale, that should be interesting. Is there a link for the announcement?

comment Why did manufactures stop including DOF scales on lenses?
Thanks Matt for the answer, however I don't agree on the first point that the lens barrel would be smaller, I've couple of old lenses and they are small and short and not heavy compared to modern lenses. I don't also agree on the instant feedback with digital camera, the dof formula works and when shooting you know what will be in focus, checking the LCD is a waste of time since you have to zoom in and scan the image to check the focus, also I mostly turn off the LCD to save battery.

comment Why don't people care any more about shutter speed accuracy?
@MattGrum just curious how did you figure out the problem with you 1DsII? Did you check it against light meter or another camera?

comment Why don't people care any more about shutter speed accuracy?
@DanWolfgang no not really, in the old days there used to be special devices to test shutter speed accuracy but now these are vanished. Now answering your question why I believe that people no longer care, check used digital camera for sale posts and film cameras, a good seller for film will say a word or two about shutter speed accuracy but you almost never see digital camera seller mention anything about that. I myself never heard about problems with shutter speeds unless I started shooting film

comment Long exposure question
more info on the scene situation would give us better idea to assist you. Try to test it near sunset where light is usually dim in the foreground and see what you'll get. 8 stops is enough density as you're cutting the current light by 256 times of the original scene

comment Why mirror lockup on long exposures?
true what you said about long exposure however if you are shooting building in the dark and there's a blur in the lights even if you exposure is long the blur in the lights will register on the sensor or the film

comment Why mirror lockup on long exposures?
the sequence for long exposure with mirror lock up to be effective is to lock the mirror up and wait couple of seconds till all the vibration is gone and then open the shutter. That's why mirror lock up involves 2 button press

welcome to pse, please use the search box first before you ask, your question would probably end up closed as duplicate. see here for answers photo.stackexchange.com/questions/1593/…

comment Can changing metering mode change focus?
sorry for being late on this one, but yes it's true that center-weight was the most lucky one in this case, I tried again later and it's the same issue regardless of the mode. I tried manual exposure and the same result, all were fine with manual focus set by me. So I guess you guys are right it was auto focusing problem after all. I returned the lens for a full refund and I got the Rokinon.

comment Canon EOS 1V HS doesn't fire Canon EX430 ii or PocketWizard
@Hugo i'll try that but it's not the flash problem cause it works fine in manual on my Canon T3i

comment Canon EOS 1V HS doesn't fire Canon EX430 ii or PocketWizard
@Hugo the camera doesn't fire with the flash only in Manual mode, it does fire it using TTL mode. It doesn't fire the Pocket Wizard wirelessly. I can definitely try to fire the pocket wizard using PC connection
