i have a question for those more knowledgeable than me. ok so say i have two canon ae-1s. both of them have the same 400 iso film in them, but one has a 35-200mm 3.5 zoom lens on it, and the other one has a 50mm 1.8 on it. if i set the aperture on both of the cameras to 5.6, will the shutter speed have to be slower on the ae-1 with the 35-200mm lens on it in order to get the same exposure as the one with the 50mm set at 5.6? i am having this problem with my two ae-1s. i think its because the lens is so long that it needs more light to get the same exposure, even when the zoom is set to 50mm and the aperture is the same. 
yes.
from here:
http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials/camera-exposure.htm

"Technical Note: With many lenses, their light-gathering ability is also affected by their transmission efficiency, although this is almost always much less of a factor than aperture. It's also beyond the photographer's control. Differences in transmision efficiency are typically more pronounced with extreme zoom ranges. For example, Canon's 24-105 mm f/4L IS lens gathers perhaps ~10-40% less light at f/4 than Canon's similar 24-70 mm f/2.8L lens at f/4 (depending on the focal length)."

no way dude

if you have iso 400 in both and you have the same speed and aperture it will be exposed the same way. 

when you use an external meter there is no setting for focal lenght or brand of camera.

^Hey i messaged u about the 503
December 19, 2012 @ 23:59:20
yeah idk, shits weird. i figured it would be the same regardless of the length of the lens. i thought maybe the meter was messed up in one of the ae-1s. oh well, we'll see when i get my pictures back.

I followed you. 

I want to post up some film stuff but I need to get a scanner that will scan my negatives since Walgreens obviously can't scan images onto a disc correctly. I have yet to take anything all that great though.

i recommend the epson v700. amazing piece of work
December 21, 2012 @ 23:23:58
Any suggestions for replacement film holders for the V600 or settings? I'm using the software it came with and its giving OK results but what do you guys use?

Are you using the Epson software or Silverfast? Mine came with silverfast and its 10x better.

December 22, 2012 @ 01:28:08
interesting. I have a the v600 too. i use the epson software. works fine for me. I always scan on professional mode so i can tweak the settings to my liking if i have too.

What film did you used? 
Did you do any digital post-processing?
December 23, 2012 @ 21:58:55
@briezrs
I usually use hp5+ or tri-x for b&w. color I use fuji pro 400h and portra 400
Yea I do. I add a black border to keep the the viewers eyes drawn to the center of the picture. It's a thing I picked up from one of favorite photographers.
Also I adjust a little contrast at times just like how you would adjust contrast when you would work in the dark room. 
If I cant do it in the darkroom I usually don't do it on photoshop. (I try to match the tones to how my darkroom print looks like).

I had to wait until the last minute to do everything and other obligations came in front of me being able to look over what I wanted to send. I don't see it really as stupid anymore just unfortunate seeing that I could have won. I have two more years to participate so I guess it's not that bad.

How do you guys upload polaroid pictures?? just use a scanner? i tried it, and the quality came out shitty. Do you guys use any programs or a specific scanner?

I scanned a couple dozen Polaroids with no problem. Is your scanner clean of any dust or anything like that? I don't have a real fancy scanner (it's a flatbed scanner built into my HP printer) and they came out OK.

Here is one for example
