First. Every time you send something to be developed ask for the full film to be returned, even if all of it is messed up. This will help you diagnose what is happening. If you have all the film and you only have 1 print, you need to analyze the negatives. Here is an example on a light leak on the film: These SLR developed photos are bad. Is it mine or the ...


It looks like the lens does not come off, however the product page states it IS threaded for a filter. Normally the last number on the lens proceeded by Ø is the filter size. This should allow you on the cheap to take up close "macro" shots with the camera you have. You simply unscrew the larger half of the lens and keep the smaller half on the ...


Uh, no. The previous answers are a little off. The lens on the camera you bought appears to be a "close-up" lens. See the word "MACRO" on the lens? That's the term we use for "close-up" photography. It means the lens is capable of very close minimum focal distance; very basically, the closer you can scooch the lens to the ...


The camera-to-subject distance of a non-adjustable camera is set to what is called the “Hyperfocal” distance. Such a setting yields a zone of acceptable sharpness, likely about ¾ meter (30 inches) to infinity ∞. Mounting a close-up lens is a good and inexpensive way to work in closer. Close-up lenses are cousins of the lenses used in store-bought reading ...


It appears the filter diameter of that camera is 52 mm. The image of the camera at the Amazon product page says "52mmW". I don't know what the "W" indicates, but the 52mm is probably the filter thread diameter. Additionally, one of the other product images says "52mm Screw Connection for UV Filter (not included)". Regarding ...


I’m not sure if it’s correct but the only way digital files could lose quality is if it’s converted to a lower quality file type or an image is uploaded onto some sort of website where compression would cause it to lose some of the data.


Will the photos saved in my computer lose quality over time? Digital storage means that either you can access it or you can't. There is no quality degradation. Storage medias tend to fail catastrophically so that if you can't access a single pixel (or read an incorrect value for it), most likely you can't access the true data of the neighboring pixels, and ...


I have a Codak cd its been in a safe for ten years now. I tried to see what was on it as one forgets over time what's on CDs. I am disappointed to see that the photos are so faded that I can use them. there useless.


I have digital images from 30 years ago and I can tell you with 100% certainty. They have degraded. In fact they degraded to a point that I almost don't want to keep them, but I do for sentimental reasons. I wish I could somehow restore them back to how they were when they were taken but I don't think that would be possible.
