Vintage lenses can be a great look but theuir mechanics can leave a lot to be desired. The biggest problem is usually a mount adapter on the back which adds wobble to lens any time you make a focus or iris adjustment. Typical mount conversion to PL are super expensive. EF conversions probably more rare but for some lenses there actually is a cheap simple fix ! If you like FD or OM glass there is a simple DIY kit to convert your lenses to solid EF mounts that don’t move around. Have a look !
Well its been a while since my last post here. If you follow my Youtube channel I’ve been putting videos out on an almost regular basis. I idea of once a week whcih is ideal just didn’t work out, but once a month ? that works. Since anamorphic lenses have become a thing, I’m there. I’ve had a set of 1.33X anamorphics for a while. I just added a 1.25X adapter for a bit more look. So check this one out –
After 10 plus years of writing reviews, how to’s, videos some changes are coming. Lets face it, it’s hard to keep turning content out when there isn’t much money in it. Sure you sometimes get products for cheap, there are tiny little payments from Google and Youtube, but not enough to make it worth while. One’s ego can have a certain boost and thats probably why people do it, but now it may be a thing of the past.
Are the days of blogs over ? killed by not always social media ? I think quite possibly they are. Some news aggregation sites live, but several have become so low in the level of quality content that I no longer visit them.
Whats the plan then ? Well I know I have content thats of value to some people as I see the page hits everyday. Not a 100K hits, but enough that I figure the people who kindly stop by found what they wanted and got some good information. Therefore I’m going to split this site in half, sort of. All the content here will stay put, but the landing page will change. One side the blog site, the other dedicated to my DP work. I’m making some investment into a new me. Targeting to have it done in the next month or so. Should be fun ! Meanwhile, leave a comment ! always nice to see people find existing content useful and that it doesn’t fall into the digital abyss.
I guess maybe that title is an understatment. I haven’t been writing a whole lot. I have been working on lots of personal projects, getting the never-gets-done list completed ! then filled with new things :(. I do have a couple new videos in the works, and we’ll see what 2021 brings. Stay safe and healthy !
