We know you're asking yourself...what's with the guy pushing the broom?
If you didn't see E. All of the above coming at you like a locomotive with its blinding headlight cleaving the black shrouded night like Lorraine Bobbit slicing through... sorry! never mind
We're the photography guys, Frank and Peters. Between us, we've got more years that we'd like to admit to of photography experience since either of us developed our own roll of film for the first time. However, unlike the furniture guys, Ed Feldman and Joe L'Erario (www.furnitureguys.com, fellow Masters of the Known Universe with whom we have no affiliation whatsoever), we don't necessarily carry the same favorite tools of our trade:
|manual everything||auto-everything (autofocus on "P"rogram mode)|
|black and white||color|
|and lest you thought we agreed...|
|twin-lens reflex (bellows)||SLR|
|2 ¼ x 2 ¼||645|
|hand-held meter||aperture-priority meter prism|
|prefers 120 format (12/roll)||prefers 220 format (35/roll)|
|Speed Graphic: simple and eminently portable||used a 4x5 camera once for a college course at Cooper Union|
film and prints,
tanks and trays
still has a can of unused MICRODOL-X from 1972, marked 84 cents each
|photo prints||photo CD-ROMs, digital prints|
|"a pox on digital"||early
Olympus C2500L SLR: ($1,400 for 2.5 megapixels!),
ALPS MD1300 dye-sub printer
Other than that, we pretty much agree on everything else, that is, everything that matters and makes a difference. The bottom line is, if you want straight advice, this is the place for you.
