Every service I'm aware of that produces large format prints from film will initially scan your film into a digital file anyway. Cutting out the middle man will allow you to use a color-managed workflow and most likely produce better outcomes. That being said, you can either go with a service that performs digital to film conversion for the film industry (...

More applicable in 2019 than at time of asking: Get any mirrorless camera. Gather a handful or two of "junk" lenses (off brand M42 lenses are cheap and great for that), and appropriate adapters. Do comparison shots of the same scene with a couple of these - especially wide open. Analyze the results under magnification (trivial on a computer), practice ...

For the DXXXX series you have to goto back to before 2016 (D3300 got them in 2016 but 2015 and 2014 model did not have radios). The no radio requirement comes from military contractors on our end. Only choice now is to goto DXXX and DXX models at twice the price. (add on modules for radios)

I'm going to take an oblique approach to answer what I infer to be the implied question, "how does my company get good product shots of large appliances with large glass doors?". When you say, the company is ok with having the equipment needed to get rid of the reflections, I assume that you are the person who is taking the product photos, and have a ...

One thing you could do is put some light inside, which will hide the reflection. Ideally, these would be LED strips placed on the far edges of shelves so that the will not be visible in the photo, but the light will. This will also make the sci-fi/laboratory aspect of the shelves stand out.

You should definitely do clean product shots - solid blank background and lighting. You can also do shots that show your product being used but you first need images that clearly show your product and show your product off. Since your product is steel and glass, you should do a black background. Any color or white will reflect off the glass and steel and ...

With reflective surfaces you do not remove the reflections. Instead, you give it something pleasing to reflect. That's what the white room/walls do... they provide a continuous smooth white reflection/gradient. Curved surfaces are much more difficult because they see/reflect a much larger area/radius.

In a reflective surface, the reflections are of the surrounding area. 1. The bigger the object the bigger space you need So, in your case, you need a really big space clean, let's say painted on white, like a photo studio. Look how humungous and clean a photo studio can be. I think you need about the space to fit two or three cars. A 90° corner could ...

Two basic techniques for dealing with reflections on glass should be known, albeit they will only reduce, not totally eliminate them - so for formal product photography, the advice about using an all white or black, uncluttered shooting environment still apply. One is using polarizing filters. In the simplest form, you use one on your camera lens - for more ...

I use for reference the first half page of hits when I search "product photographs industrial refrigerator"… You'll notice the very first thing you are going to need is a white room, or if budget is limited then some kind of framework from which you can hang white sheets or paper roll, completely surrounding the product. Once you have that, you are then in ...

Extension tubes, so long as they make electrical connection, affect nothing except the amount of light that actually reaches the camera sensor. They have no influence on anything other than the focussing distance. Because of that, yes, 68 mm of extension tube will get you very very close indeed on a 50mm lens, in fact I've found 50mm to be about the break-...

I have the RF 24-240 lens for my EOS RP. I also have EF 24-105 f/4L mk1 lens. I don't have the RF 24-105 f/4L lens. The RF 24-240 lens has several quirks you need to know: Lack of weather sealing Lens hood needs to be bought separately Manual focus switch is missing and you need to set it in the camera menu The focus/control rings are combined into one The ...

How important is "image quality" to you (sharpness, aberrations, distortion, light falloff, flaring, etc)? You can compare the lenses at The Digital Picture. Superzooms usually... Are more versatile. They cover a greater focal length range. Are more convenient. You don't have to change lenses. Are more fun. You can take pictures without worrying about ...

Some factors to consider: Accuracy – Measurements are near what they're supposed to be. I don't know how to determine this aside from trying out several different devices and perhaps comparing with laboratory-grade spectrometers. Ultimately, you're just going to have to trust that the devices do what they're designed to do. Reliability (Precision) – ...
