843 Kiwis to the Rescue

Chris has a call for help all the Kiwis out there. Well, several. About rental cars, workshop locations and ground support. Hugh wonders if the very special film that he exposed 20 years ago and never developed is still good to take to a lab to see what’s on it. And it’s not C41 color negative…

840 Socially Acceptable

Hampus wonders about exposure compensation when using Auto ISO in manual mode. Is there such a thing? Does it make sense? Colin wants to know how local laws have an influence on photo tour planning. Also: Chris’ dji Mavic Air has died right before it could take some beautiful aerials in Ireland. Bummer.

839 The Wild Atlantic Way

What does it take to get a good photo at some of Northern Irelands more touristy places? Chris talks about his experience at The Dark Hedges, which is a hotspot for Game of Thrones fans and Giant’s Causeway, where Chris didn’t only have the most amazing geological formations in front of his lens, but also plenty of tourists climbing around on them. His solution: pre-visualize the shot and execute on the idea. Steve has come across a bunch of expired film in a thrift store and wonders how that film should be treated to get the best results. As a general rule, Chris suggests to add one stop of light per three years of expiration, but also cautions that storage conditions have a big impact on how expired film develops color casts over the years.

Will storing your lenses horizontally or vertically degrade their sharpness over time? And what’s better, autofocus or manual focus?
