Cámaras telemétricas (I): qué son, ventajas y desventajas

Tras una edad dorada durante el siglo pasado, y una fase de olvido durante el nacimiento de las reflex digitales, actualmente tenemos varios modelos en la calle con un cierto velo de lujo y exclusividad, pero, ¿las conocemos realmente? Detrás de una lente: Réflex versus Telemétricas. El mundo de la fotografía está lleno de discusiones, de conflictos, de diferentes puntos de vista.

Beloved High-Speed Film Camera Faces Extinction

Hulcher Co. filled an important niche in the camera world. Their cameras, which shot up to 100 frames per second, were used to make photos of everything from Space Shuttle launches to Major League Baseball games. But as digital cameras came to dominate, Hulcher saw business decline steeply, and today the company is down to just four employees. “Digital has pretty much killed film cameras,” says Richard Hill, 75, who has been at the Hulcher company since the 1950s. The original model, the Hulcher 70, was built in the early 1950s by Charles Hulcher and could shoot up to 50 frames per second on 70mm film.

And of those high-frame-rate cameras, Hulcher filled a special role. Gary Beasley, 67, another one of the remaining employees, says Hulcher originally invented the Hulcher 70 while working as an employee for the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, NASA’s predecessor. Hill says the military was always one of the company’s biggest clients. Hodachrome. The chlorophyll process « Chlorophyll Process.

As a result, their swimming pool is just the right size for someone a little over five feet tall to accomplish small laps in. "It's shallow, not that long, and shaped like a peanut," says Deanna. In her new book, The Swimming Pool (due for release through Um Yeah Arts in June), Deanna captures eight summers worth of visiting skinny dippers — friends, and later, friends of friends — suspended in the pool's turquoise water. 100+ Creative Photography Ideas: Techniques, Compositions And Mixed Media Approaches.

Using Coloured Filters in Black and White Photography. Black and white filters let you control how colours are converted to shades of grey. Use them to get the right contrast and mood in your photos. A common problem in black and white photography is that certain colours look very similar when converted into greyscale. For example, some shades of red, green, and blue look completely different in colour, but almost identical in black and white. This can cause objects in a black and white image to blend into one another, leaving you with a photo which is flat and lifeless, and lacking in contrast and definition. How Exposure Affects Film.

OK, so for a while we’ve been wanting to explain a couple of film technicalities that we’re pretty sure will change many people’s understanding of film and exposure. Alright, take a deep breath ‘cause this stuff is easy but sometimes difficult to explain in written communication. So the thing is that exposure on film (unlike in digital photography) is not equivalent at all to overall brightness of an image.

For example, in the digital photography world when someone speaks of an overexposed image you instantly imagine a bright, all-white image with (probably) clipped highlights. In the film world this is not necessarily so. Color film’s latitude is huge. Here’s the full spectrum of the 13 stops of the test Now zooming in on the Overexposure side And finally the Underexposure side of the test. Ultimate Exposure Computer.

Imagine an exposure computer so advanced that it uses your eyes as a sensor. The processing unit is as powerful as your brain. The computer is accurate over a light range from reflected starlight through the light produced in a hydrogen fusion reaction. This computer weighs nothing and operates without batteries. It comes with instructions to allow you to implant the capabilities of the computer directly into your own memory so you can accurately judge a correct exposure by simply looking at the type of light that the subject is in.

An Introduction to Shooting Street Photography With Film. For the last year and a half or so, I have been shooting my personal street photography on exclusively film. After shooting digital for around 7 years or so, it has been a great experience so far and I have learned a ton. When I first wanted to start shooting street photography I had a lot of fears. What if the photos don’t turn out?
