    Seth let me borrow one of his canonets. Looks pretty but it's a pain to focus. I predict a roll of crappy photos will come out of it.

      How can a rangefinder be a pain in the ass to focus?

    13. diyosa 3 months ago | reply

      i just can't do it. I can't see the two images to match up. Even on an MP i suck.

    14. deaf burglar (to bokeh or not to bokeh?) 3 months ago | reply

      That's funny. A properly calibrated rangefinder generally focuses more accurately than most autofocus systems and definitely more accurate than a manual focus SLR. Perhaps a faded patch can pose difficulties in low light, but I find it hard to believe that you can't focus correctly with an MP. Train harder soldier! lol

      hahaha... you're right. i must train harder!. My understanding is once you get comfortable with a rangefinder you never look back. I can focus an aero-ektar on 4x5 but not a rangefinder! Actually I can focus it. it just takes a lot more time than it should. Also. i should note that i'm trying to focus f 1 on the mp.

    16. deaf burglar (to bokeh or not to bokeh?) 3 months ago | reply

      f1.0 must be insanely difficult to focus. I don't have anything faster than 1.7 on a rangefinder and I rarely shoot them wide open, mostly around the 4.0-8.0 range. What I do is I usually overshoot and then turn the focus ring back slowly until the images coincide and I never question the first attempt, if you do that you it certainly takes longer to focus.

      Thanks. I'll have to give that a try. Now to pry the mp and noct from the boyfriends hands. :)
