Upgrade your thinking not your camera. Don't make just better images but more interesting images. This is something that must come from us and our experiences. No camera can do this for us

Hej Bosse. Välkommen!

Good advertising. The job of advertising is to create demand even when there may not be any.

I myself will not be "upgrading." I have a Canon 5D mkIII that I bought around four years ago and I intend to use it until it is not worth repairing. The latest and greatest equipment will not make my images more interesting or better. That is work that I have to do.

Can you tell me more?? Remember, I'm looking for a DIGITAL body.


Sorry. I only noticed that after I posted.

The Canon Rangefinders started out as Leica clones and Canon over time made modifications that made a wonderful series of cameras. They stopped producing them in the 1960s.

I was hoping that their new mirrorless camera would take some stylistic cues from their rangefinders similar to Fuji's mirrorless offerings. Sadly they didn't. It is likely as others have pointed out that an adapter for Canon mirrorless for L39 lenses made be in the future.

What would be far more interesting and useful would be posting the reason behind the photograph. Why was it made? What was going through your mind when you made the image? What is the importance of the image? What is the concept that images portrays visually?

No, the sensors in mirrorless cameras are not exposed to the sun at all times! You don't have to worry your film getting exposed without a lens cap, when shooting with a mirrorless film camera either!


Though if you camera has a cloth shutter, the sun can burn pinholes or worse in the shutter. I had it happen to a Canon rangefinder recently. Current mirrorless cameras do not use cloth shutters so there is far less chance of such a problem.

The very word "photograph" means "writing with light" ("photo" is based on the Greek for "light" and "graph" on the Greek word for "write"). Thus any means of light-writing is the same whether it is with film (analog) or electronics (digital).


Yes. Any image made with using light sensitive materials is a photograph. Also, a camera is not necessary for the creation of photographs.

Simple question. Did you use a light sensitive medium to create your image? If the answer is yes, then you are a photographer.

Depends on the emulsion and the process. Wetplate colloidion is usually around ISO 1. Silver gelatin emulsion speeds vary greatly. With the commercial emulsion I use for my plates the ISO is about ISO 1. Emulsions can initially gain speed and contrast with moderate age. ISO 2-3 is generally standard paper speed. I know of some of that have created home made emulsions in the ISO 25-50 range.

The lens being a further distance from the film/ sensor is a big part of it. The f-number does not change as I understand it. It is similar to bellows extension factor with view cameras. The further the lens from the film plane the more compensation is needed.

Color negative. Portra 160 and 400 in 120. More latitude and I really prefer the more subtle colors. Mostly I shoot b&w film or plates.

Remember it? Ha! I still use it but more sheets rather than rolls at this point.

And if it sells well he can then issue second limited edition by popular demand. In the days of film photography it's kind of difficult to make identical prints after a while although it's possible. With digital it's easy.


As with inking a plate in print making, it can be difficult if not impossible to print two prints exactly the same in the darkroom. Editions often contain slight variances. If an image is known enough and has a definitive version then that version is generally the most valuable. For instance later prints of Adams Moonrise over Hernandez are often more valuable than earlier copies because of the darkened sky that has become the iconic version.

For me an edition is a specific size print. I usually make two different size prints from each of my series. For one series it is 10x13 and 14x18 and for another series they are 10x12 and 20x24. Photography is a bit more complicated than other media because of the ability of enlargement. When I took printmaking classes we always made editions. The prints in an edition all had to be on the same paper, with the same ink and tonal range.

Frankly artists proofs generally mean very little unless one is well known.
