Bring your lenses (and camera) that you want to have tested, and I will bring the rest (ie: lighting, printed test pattern, tripod, laptop w/ photoshop, LCD projector, screen.)
It won't be the perfect scientific test, but it will be a good "operating" test of this.
I will also bring the shen-hao and do a test or two of the same pattern using my lenses just for giggles. We will have to wait for the prints to compare for the final judgement on these. Hmmmm, maybe even comparing negative film to transparency film???
Plus, a little bit about what it takes to get the best print off of that digital file.
Is that the f/11 Takumar fisheye, or the f/4 Takumar fisheye? I'm not a fan of the fisheye effect, but I am a fan of 17mm. And there's always the fisheye-effect correcting power of photoshop. I'm actually more interested in the f/11 because of its thinner-than-a-pancake form factor.
No offence to Rich, but Beaner's will work just fine as far as space goes. Do we really need the screen, since it is 7 feet wide? Or can we just work off of the laptop screen? Can you tell that I am too dang lazy to haul that around???
I will call Beaner's and see if the room is available. Let's say 7:00.
I did go ahead and call Beaner's and the upper room is availalble, though I did not reserve it yet. The only projection screen they have is on the main stage area. I can bring mine, though it is a bit to haul. I just hope that we can maneuver it up the stairs and through that door.
Yes, let's go with tomorrow night (Wed, 10/15) at Beaner's upstairs, 6:00 and we will just have to deal with open mic night. Oh, well.
