I know a pro that uses polaroids to check exposure/lighting for studio photos, and he just uses the Fujifilm version.
Pictures will be up in about 3 weeks when the camera is back from the shop after more modifications.
This is all well and fine but ... how about a photo of the beast? Snorting fire and all!
Yes, 20x24 is a BEAST of a camera, no matter how it is made.
It needs to work well, and then it will take time to get used to.
I would probably be slower using my Nikon F, because I am sometimes anal about metering every shot, no matter if the weather has changed or not. In a studio, with controlled lighting, if metering is not a problem for him, he can get to it pretty fast.
Well I pray for him every day ;-)
I thought you meant he had passed away. I was all set to pray for his soul. Perhaps I still should.
I hope you didn't take it the wrong way. I was saying that the 35mm shooters who shoot slower than with a Sinar must be out of shape, no matter what the environment.
I will pass on Your comment to him.
As for the the speed. He is lightning fast on his Sinar. I have tried to learn what he is doing, but he is too fast. And anybody can shoot from the hip with a digital Nikon or Canon, but that is not what I am writing about. I am writing about photographers that want to get the best possible image directly out of the camera. In order to spend less time in PhotoShop.
Gosh that sounded like me, except that I am still going with my Sinar in the studio shooting and processing my 4x5 color transparencies. I switched to Fuji 4x5 color instant film (FP-100C45) and all of a sudden my "tests" got a whole lot better. That Fuji is great instant film. Anybody that would "quit" just because one of two instant film vendors closed up I think really wanted to go to digital anyway.
