  1. Coincidentally, I was thinking about this question when I saw your post. The following sale came through a couple of days ago: Country: Worldwide Usage: Personal use, Personal prints, cards and gifts. Non-commercial use only, not for resale. Media: Non-commercial, one time, personal/home use Start: 23 February 2021 End: 23 February 2026 $ 15.99 23 February 2021 alamy Commission 2E2RP88 43.50% 6.96 23 February 2021 Affiliate Commission 2E2RP88 13% 2.08 ...which leaves 6.95 for me, as opposed to eight bucks if there were no affiliate. I
  2. The X-T200 has copper wires and a Bayer sensor. https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/fujifilm-x-t200-review/2
  3. If you have Photoshop, LAB color separates the color information from the tonal information. Convert to LAB and select Lightness channel, which is the B&W element only. Copy that and paste in a new window and convert that back to RGB. (Tried to insert a sample from URL, but the system wouldn't accept it.)
  4. Who needs charges when you have a bogus exchange rate?
  5. Ditto the verticals, a holdover from when clients used to say "shoot more verticals" along with reminding me to have more shots with people in them. I don't carry the vertical battery grip much because of weight, but do like the vertical controls on occasion. On the other subject, I figure I'll finally start to become a European when I come to understand why a country the size of Sacramento County needs its own language. Till then I'll stick to the opinion that Lëtzebuergesch is more of a secret code than a language, something the Luxemburgers speak among themselves when they don't want to
  6. I also used a Fuji 645. A photographer I knew referred to it as my "point and shoot Hasselblad." I also used mostly 220 in that and a Pentax 645 I once had. Given that 35mm had the emulsion spread out over sprocket holes, leader and tail, with all of it packaged in a can within a can, it was quite wasteful. Using 220, which has a paper leader and tail and is packaged in foil, the cost worked about the same per frame as mounted 35mm for around 3X the film area.
  7. Not only for surfers (photo of Ansel Adams by Beaumont Newhall).
  8. This is a somewhat worrying question. Assuming the OP knows what he's looking at and doesn't see watermarks, it brings up the question whether that might be the case for others, i.e., many others. And yes, Nervous Nellie is something I've heard before.
  9. I check often and it's like the old saw about insanity being repeatedly doing the same thing and expecting a different result. So I checked yet again and — surprise, surprise — there was a sale! First one since early August, but it was for low $$$. Good old Alamy.
  10. 150lpi, or lines per inch, is the standard for sheet-fed lithographic printing. The pixels/dots per inch of a photograph should be twice the lines per inch on the press, hence 300dpi. Prepress technicians will often use a higher resolution for raster images of typography, but the 2-1 ratio holds for photos.
  11. I used to use one of those when I shot with a Pentax 645 and was able to shoot in winter, regardless of outside temps, by keeping it tucked inside my coat.
