Nikon Photo Contest No Longer Accepts Photos Shot Using Film Cameras

Wow, I have no words, except maybe, “FUCK YOU NIKON!”. I feel like Ive been saying this more and more lately…This just makes no sense at all.

*Side note: any of you ass-hats make a comment like, “Get a Canon” or “Film is dead”, I am so going to drop a “D” in your bed.

Kodak TMax P3200 Film to be Discontinued :(

This sucks. Its the only (ultra) high speed film I used regularly. Although I have recently decided to switch to Delta 3200, I am saddened by this news. Time to stock up, bitches.

Press Release:
Due to low sales volume, Kodak is ending production of KODAK PROFESSIONAL T-MAX P3200 Film (TMZ). The demand for ultra-high speed B&W film has declined significantly, and it is no longer practical to coat such a small volume of product.

The suggested replacement is KODAK PROFESSIONAL T-MAX 400 Film (TMY-2). The latitude of TMY-2 allows it to handle one stop of underexposure (EI 800) without being pushed. In low light situations, TMY-2 delivers very good results when exposed at EI 1600 with increased development time.

Even though P3200 is approx 2 stops faster than TMY-2 at comparable contrast levels, that extra speed comes with a very significant grain penalty. In fact, for most applications TMY-2 is actually the better film choice. The exception would be extremely low light situations where P3200 might be able to pull out some shadow detail that would otherwise be lost with TMY-2.

Its the little things that count...

Been working away, busy season seems to have stretched over into summer this year, which, I guess is nice. I have a couple of new pics coming along. More shoots in the coming weeks, so have no fear, it wont just be instagram pics of my cameras for much longer!

Speaking of pics of my cameras, heres a random picture I found in one of my old folder. Its my very first "Professional" DSLR (its professional coz it says so on the body ;). The Kodak DCS 315 with a whopping 1.5mp sensor! That was some serious shit back then (I think it was 1998)  If I am remembering correctly, this camera cost me about $2500 bucks! Built off a Nikon Pronea 6i SLR, it was nothing more then a piece of shit consumer camera with a rubberized brick glued to the bottom of it. My old Motorola Razr cell phone took better pictures! Ok, maybe not that bad, but pretty bad. Though there are a few shots from this camera that I still enjoy and keep in my portfolio to this day, in particular the "Unknown To Me" series from last years 365 project. Ahh, those were the days...And what the hell was with that piece of shit zoom lens on it?! I guess I was always a Tamron fan :)
Good lord, this thing's storage were PC cards!

Anyhoo, yeah, more fun stuff to come! So dont give up on me just yet!
