Canon vs Nikon: Which is better?
One camera setting that ruins your pictures
(and more, keep reading):
 

Unlike other websites, we don't try to pitch DSLRs, lenses, and other gear, while collecting sales commission. We don't sell photography tutorials, books, DVDs and courses, while promising that your photography will improve only if you buy what's being promoted.

Instead, we have other people, who've already become great photographers, share with you what they learned, what gear they use, which products really work and which are useless, which techniques work and which don't.

It's all completely unbiased. Our users simply have no reason to lie to you. They are people just like you.

And we provide a free platform for you and them to communicate. So you get to discover this information straight from the source, from people just like you, not from editors of some magazine or sales reps of some company.

This is what make us different from other photography websites out there that try to sell you something while claiming they are trying to help you.

Among our users, we have some of the most talented photographers in the world share advice that you won't find even in the most expensive subscription magazines. That's because some of them only post on our website, so you won't find this information anywhere else! Some of them post under an alias, others disclose their studio name, it's up to them. But in either case you get to read and discover photography techniques that will make you very good at taking pictures.

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional photographer, then the benefits of signing up for our free daily photography forum digest are:

• We cover both film and digital photography.

• We talk about professional (D)SLR cameras, mirrorless cameras, mid-range/prosumer models, point-and-shoot, and camera phones.

• We cover all types of photography from portraits to landscapes to action shots to macro photography. (Which one interests you the most? Stop and ask yourself right now. You'll need to be able to answer that in just a minute. No matter what you shoot, you'll get better at just that. Read below to find out why.)

• We cover all aspects of photography from picking gear to composition to working with models, and everything in between.

• Each week you'll be receiving new tips and techniques on how to take the kind of pictures that will make your friends, relatives and peers just stare in amazement, speechless, when they see your work. Yep! That's how good your photography will become.

• Daily, you'll be receiving a photography forum digest with the latest photography tips, tricks, reviews and discussions.

• If you ever have a question or need help, you can always ask, and we'll cover your question in the following newsletter issue.

• And of course, it's all completely FREE!

• Let me repeat that. Since for some reason a lot of people contact us asking if the membership is really free: we are a social website for photographers, so we don't sell anything, and we don't charge any fees. It's as simple as that.

Enter your name and e-mail address below, and you'll be instantly added to our photography mailing list distribution. Right away, you'll get access to more photography-related material (pictures, tips, tricks, reviews) than contained in all photography books and magazines you could ever buy. And you'll get all that for free.

I have some old 127 size film (image area = 1 5/8" square) that I would like to scan. I have an Epson V600 scanner that has holders for 35mm, both roll film and slides and one for medium format film, but not for 127. Does anyone know where I can find a holder for the 127 film? I tried Google with no success, and Epson's response was just make one out of cardboard. I can do that, but would rather have on out of plastic if I can find one.

Thanks,
Robert

You don't NEED a holder unless your film is badly curled. Just lay it flat on the glass, close the lid and preview. You might need to practice a little to get it square but it will work, I have done it on my Epson V500.

I shoot a little 127. Too little to spend $75 on "glass less ANR glass". That is confusing. I do have a piece of 4x5 ANR I put on top of curly small odd film like MT suggests.

I mainly use my V700 for much larger format and since I often don't like my images on the light table many do not get scanned.

Now I am chasing ever bigger formats for contact printing...

Good luck. What camera are you using for 127? And what film? I shot some old 127 Ectachrome last year. Came out fine.

MT, square? Never happen. I adjust rotation after in PS.

I use an Epson Perfection 3200 and the odd times I've been asked to scan 127 film, I've just used the medium format holder. It's worked well for me. You can also just lay the film on the scanner without the holder and that works pretty well, also.

Its best to scan with some dark area around the slide. All you need is some thin black art paper and you cut a hole the area of whatever slide you want to scan with a razor blade and you will have a great template for scanning.

I don't think anyone prints 127 anymore, except DIY B&W. I can get the color film developed, but only at a very high price will my Lab print color 127.

Sorry it's been a while since I used film.
I spent a lot of money having film developed. Digital is the best thing to happen in my photo experience. My delete button is getting worn though.

I try to shoot digital slower than i used to. I also now have several different digital cameras for different purposes. I never leave home without my Nikon P7000. very handy for snaps, impulse and eBay.

I pick up the 'big' 36 mega wowza only when needed.

I actually spend most of my time with LF film cameras, for fun!

Digital is only for work.
