  1. Yikes, I don't even want to imagine that...
  2. A typical Japanese telephone booth since the 80s looks as if it were made with four windowpanes which will almost never fail to stink of nicotine and tar inside. 😩
  3. Love the entire atmosphere and the blue-green tonality.
  4. Wow, this is a truly enjoyable thread! All images are fine representations of attractive telephone booths. Thank you for sharing!
  5. Shot in Roppongi area in Tokyo. Sigma fp and Sigma 45/2.8.
  6. I've been using Sundisk 256GB SSD as C drive of my main machine for almost three years. I perform TRIM once or twice per month using Sundisk SSD Dashboard (the official maintenance software). According to the software, the currently remaining life is 90%. So, roughly 3% per year, if that would offer some food for thought. If you use it just for the storage, the operation should be less burdensome.
  7. Always love your LF works, Allan! Even a Gulliver's cellphone would be too small to integrate the sensor of that size. 🙄
  8. Thank you, Dallas. Sure I will post more. Stay tuned! Although it is a great combo for "my" style of shooting, there may be some limitations for the true style of street photography. More later.
  9. Happy New Year, folks! Wish you all to get off to prospective starts! Shot with the new combo on the way to and from the New Year's visit to the shrine in my neighbors.
  10. Thank you for the technical details!
  11. Great restoration work, Alan! The resulted image would look historically appropriate for the camera, if the banjo would be of a fretless minstrel type. 😀
  12. I always love the way you capture the lights, and this series is no exception. Which wideangle lens did you use for the images #11, 12 and 13? Apparently it has six aperture blades. A vintage one?

    Long time no see, Chris! I was breathless to see these unbelievable images! It's a relief to know the numbers are focal lengths and not working distances!
  14. Thank you, Noct, for detailed info on LR. That helps a lot!
