comment Can I use these old lenses from DVT vision systems on modern cameras?
Some sort of tele-converter should be able to get around the image circle size problem, at the expense of a longer exposure...

comment Do colors in photographs depend on ambient temperature?
@OlinLathrop - you say "the sensitivity of blue drops off more quickly with cold than does the sensitivity of green and red." (Slide film) - Would this then actually have the opposite effect? meaning there is LESS blue in cold-film images?

Ahh I missed that one! I was trying to find the "Site Guidelines" that Michael referred to in his edit comment. I have therefore changed my answer back to Ye Olde ENGLISH :-) (Because I'm in that sort of mood today!)

comment Do colors in photographs depend on ambient temperature?
Well ok, i know what you are saying, if you want to re-word my answer please go ahead. I mean its not something that can be set or changed in-camera on-the-fly. On a side note, why did Michael Clark feel compelled to change my (correct British) spelling of 'Colour' to the american 'color'?
