    Dear Mark,

    There's a very impressive (?16th century) Culpeper memorial in All Saints', Birchington, too -- which is also where Dante Gabriel Rosetti is buried.

    Cheers,

    Roger

    I wasn't aware of the one in Birchington. Many years ago I visited a lot of the sites such as Hollingbourne, Leeds, Stede Hill. Must get back and record more. My grandmother was a Culpeper and a direct descendent of the Wigsell Culpepers, but its a long intertwined (and fascinating) story. How I wish the Americans would take out the double p.

    ROGER,

    "I post this principally to point out that RF cameras can perfectly well be used in good light -- they are not just low-light cameras." said Roger H

    "Of course you can use RFs in good light, but some of the appeal is that you can use them, and often nothing else, in bad." said DBP

    "No question. But there seem to be some who think that the latter is the only way you are allowed to use them. For example, unless I misunderstood him, Bruce Terry said you always get camera shake if the camera's being used right (see 'Which is sharper?')." responded Roger H

    Now Roger, in a response specifically directed toward obsession with sharpness, what I said was: "Camera movement. Inherent in a RF being used right. So don't waste your time fretting about sharp. Maybe "bokah", maybe "contrast", definitely the way the camera holds steady, definitely the image in front of you, but sharpness? Come on!"

    In the thread I further said:
    "I've used Ms....over the years on tripods for all sorts of reasons including max sharpness."
    " ...small, light, traveling, quick focusing - what RFs are mainly about....doesn't include a slow-you-down tripod or flapping mirror (except maybe for the day trip to the Inca Ruins or the still-life of your Grandma's vase)."
    "....within it's true mission, the hand, the balance of a RF with it's attached lens is more important to print result than the "sharpness" of any modern glass."


    I believe you're trying to pull a rabbit out of a hat here - and this rabbit takes offense. =;•(

    Exactly !

    I am constantly amused by the notion that some people have about photographic technique – a notion which reveals itself as an insatiable craving for sharpness in images. Is this the passion of an obsession? Or do these people hope, by this “trompe l’oeil” technique, to get to closer grips with reality? In either case, they are just as far away from the real problem as those of that other generation which used to endow all its photographic anecdotes with an intentional unsharpness such as was deemed to be “artistic.”

    I think you know that man !

    Dear Bruce,

    I'm very sorry; I did not mean to offend you (or your rabbit!). But if you re-read your original you can see where my misconception arose. Please accept my apologies and put it down to the fact that internet communication never works as well as face-to-face.

    Cheers,

    Roger

    Thanks. I'll forward that to Karl. The 03 pic was missing at one point...

    Cheers,

    The rabbit accepts your carrot....and yes, a lesson here: the slightest overlooked qualifier, be it coma, period, dash, not-laid-down word or two - such as "at slow speeds" - can get things off on a tangent in a hurry.

    Have a good weekend and may your hat overflow with rabbits! =;•)
