    Let's see...

    1. He thinks the eye has a memory, albeit fleeting, which I am sure would come as a surprise to all neurologists and opthalmologists.

    2. He thinks that rangefinders are inherently limited to focusing on objects closer than 30 meters, having apparently never encountered the other uses of rangefinders or the study of geometry and trigonometry. Thus he does not realize that rangefinders have been used to determine distances of moving earthbound objects to at least 20 miles (e.g. naval rangefinders in the world wars), and celestial objects far beyond that.

    3. He thinks a grid on ground glass is used for focusing, which would seem to confirm the implication in his comments about professionals that he does not know the difference between composition and focus.

    4. He thinks that focus is achieved in more than one plane (the film and ?).

    5. He thinks the poor resolution of TV pictures is due to problems with focus, having apparently never looked closely at a TV screen .

    6. It doesn't occur to him that most of the problem with the Zapruder film lies in it having been made handheld on 8mm film.

    Wow!

    I won't waste my time reading some technical jazz, but I always thought the best images were supposed to be out of focus. Isn't that why you're supposed to breath on the front of the lens before each exposure? That's what all the Kodak books say to do.

    I think the film flatness in the holder is more a problem then any focusing problem!

    Now I know why Ansel Adams photos always seemed so fuzzy. Poor Ansel! All that work for fuzzy photos! I thought I just needed new glasses. Mr. Anstendig has cleared it up, and saved me a trip to the optometrist.

    The Anstendig Institute

    I would like to see Dave over at Satin Snow make one of these.

    There are some new items on their web site, I'm still looking, it's not often that I find something new that is interesting. Whether it is of any practical use is not clear.
