    I've been having tons of fun shooting with my new Canon FD 50mm 1.4 on my Fuji.

    I'd also like to change mine, if possible. By chance I just happened to get a picture yesterday of the same man! So here's a much more recent entry.

    Found a pristine Canon FD 50mm 1.4 lens today for cheap. Much larger than my 50mm 1.8. But it works very well on my new camera even if it does make the camera body feel like a lens cap!

    Keep in mind my Vivitar is a lowly F4.5, so I believe it's probably a relatively low-end lens. I've heard the faster 2.8 models are quite good, but I haven't tried one. The 50mm 1.8 Canon lens I've...

    It does, but because the lens is so soft, the camera doesn't seem to effectively show when the focus is actually peaked. So really all I'm doing is magnifying the scene in the EVF, then focusing...

    I got a Fuji X-E1 the other day, and a Canon FD lens adapter because I already had several FD mount lenses. The dime-a-dozen 50mm 1.8 is definitely the best of the bunch, and the easiest to use:

    Just a short ride to Lake Padden this morning, but I explored a trail I'd never tried before. At first it was mild and no trouble for my Univega. But eventually it just turned into what I would...

    This shot's probably a bit older than ideal, though I can't remember exactly when I took it. Shot with my Canonet QL17 GIII and most likely Kodak Portra, but I'm not sure.

    Rode about 28-30 miles today, just up the road to Ferndale (albeit the long way). I found a trail that runs along the Nooksack River, shown in the third picture. It started out fine but gradually...

    The funny thing is, when I put the shifters into friction mode, they shift considerably better than the old Suntour barcons I was using before. I guess maybe the old shifters and Cyclone derailleur...

    Man, both of those videos were excellent. And I really like the music in the earlier scenes of the Top Gear video. I know it's a movie theme, but for the life of me I can't remember which movie.
