I needed to study that it’s good to belief the digicam generally. particularly if it’s a digicam that has not often allow you to down. I attempted my first roll of this movie in a previous put up on my weblog. ISO 1.6 was exterior of my consolation zone and I waffled on how greatest to reveal. Go for the handbook settings beneficial on FPP’s web site or set the digicam up appropriately (ISO 6 and +2 publicity). And the outcomes have been as combined as my strategy to publicity. Went with an odd duck SIGMA SA-7N that point round. The digicam’s exposure-ing labored out much better than the handbook settings. Predictable. What was much less predictable and a bit baffling was the flares and different light-related aberrations.
Unsure what occurred with the flaring however so far as the publicity goes I made a decision that I’d not second guess the digicam. I’ve used 200, 400, and 800 ISO movie sufficient that I can considerably guesstimate publicity settings if I needed to. ISO 1.6? I don’t stand an opportunity.
This time the software of alternative was the Pentax *ist and FA 50mm f/1.4 lens. I used the identical settings as my first roll, ISO 6 and +2 publicity compensation.
Sidebar: I discover it attention-grabbing that these cheap SLRs are capable of accommodate such a low ISO whereas two, extra fancy pants cameras, specifically the Konica RF for instance, couldn’t. That low of an ISO wouldn’t permit me to dial in any publicity compensation. A win for the cheap odd geese.
So… ISO 6 with +2 publicity comp, carry the 2, and hi there ISO 1.5 or thereabouts. This time I ignored one thing that threw me final time. The broad daylight handbook setting ideas from FPP’s web site. Final time I second guessed the digicam on and off all day… and discovered afterward that I ought to have trusted the digicam. I made a decision to not repeat this error.
In contrast to final time I didn’t try any low gentle inside photographs and stayed with broad daylight. As standard developed at residence with Cinestill CS41.
The ensuing pics this time? All are correctly uncovered. All 24 (All FPP noticed match to offer.) got here out and listed below are 5 of my favorites from the roll. Selecting 5 was harder than standard since I favored a very good many of those photographs.
Properly, that wraps up my foray into extremely low ISO movies. Will I purchase extra? I’m glad I imagined you requested. At first, I assumed probably not. Merely put there have been inadequate tangible IQ benefits to outweigh the restrictions of utilizing such a low ISO. Nevertheless it does have a novel look and attempting one thing completely different was enjoyable although so who is aware of?
I respect having this chance to share my experiences with these lenses.
