Kickstarter Project: Analogbook - The Photographers Notebook
Saw this on the Large Format Forum, looked useful enough to me for me to pledge support. I have no other connection with the project or people involved just thought it would be of interest to people here:
Apologies if this is not allowed, just thought it a useful tool that would be of interest here.
A interesting idea.
But in spite a lot of talking and writing of him I still don't know what the pages contain.
I find it odd that I would need so much more note space per shot on medium format compared to 35mm.
well it's much bigger film, of course.
imagine how big the notebook would have to be for an ULF shooter ...

I like it and it could help me to get more organized. I backed the project.

My favorite cameras: Mamiya C330f, Nikon S2, Hasselblad SWC, Fuji GSW690 II, Leica SL, Leica M7, Russian FKD 18x24, Bronica SQ-B and RF645, Rolleiflex T, Nikon F4s, Olympus Pen FT, Agfa Clack and my pinhole cameras.

From the photos, it doesn't look like anything super special. I carry a couple Rite-in-the-Rain notepads around, which are waterproof and not very expensive. They go everywhere with me. I am very clumsy at times, and can tell you that not only are they water proof, they are also Fixer proof =P.
If I want organized, uniform columns, I break out the straight edge and label things by hand. That whey I have space for what I need, and nothing more.
New-ish convert to film.
Pentax MX for 35mm
Bronica ETRS for 645
I think he might mean something else: "Opening up my film folders I found countless sheets of paper with exposure and color correction notes. There had to be a better way..."
This doesn't seem so special, lots of exposure records out there. The trick is connecting the notes back to the film. I think twin checks could be good, some sort of easy numbering system. I hate doing too much writing in the field.
In never came across any. And this is only the second one I learn about.

As the resident photographer in the office, I offered some suggestions for titles. The fact that the pages are removable seems a plus so you can keep the exposure notes with the negatives.
Within the next few months, we'll have our catalog up for sale on-line.
Sorry if this seems excessively solicitous. Seemed relevant to the thread.
I shoot digital when I have to (most of those shots end up here
) and film (occasionally one of those shots ends up here
) when I want to.
I guess I'm dating myself but Morgan and Lester had one, Ansel Adams had one in his book that you could copy, Zone VI had one that Calumet still carried not too long ago, I think the Formulary had one, maybe still do. More common in the LF world. A notebook is good, I'd like to have twin check stickers as well, to match record to roll and then to negative sleeve with a number.
