I use to have a few of those grey card - just forgot where I put it!!! :?:

Another way (the approximate way) is use ur palm. Hold your palm agaisnt the subject and meter off your palm
then add 1 stop to the exposure. If the shots is important bracket it.


totally agree with you. i use spot metering too :wink:

So what film camera are you using? I myself currently still keep (in my dry case) my EOS 50 and a Olympus OM-2s.
All my previous cameras sold! too many to recall what I've use. I'm not much of a artistic guy but more of playing with
toys type. I used to buy cameras not to take picture with it but just curious what it can do!!!
:wink:


wow! dun just keep them,mike. use it. i dun ask you to spend many daily, just a roll or two for say for two weeks.

that Olympus OM-2s attracted me. i suggest you use that. i bet must be fully manual.

im using Nikon FM2 at the moment and Nikon D70s. i just finished a roll of fujifilm 400 today which i had loaded for 2 weeks. im loading a new one tomorrow. i alway have my FM2 with me, to do street photography, or anything. and im still using film-compact sometime. i have one Canon Prima BF-90 which my dad bought for me in Sibu in 1994 whn we went there makan angin. still look new. i'll take pic of her when im free. :wink:

I fully agree with this one. When I'm converting some 120 films into digital, espeically color photos of scenery, it is way better than what you get from a digital camera alone. I can't explain it, it just is.

Once you tweak it, the photo really stands out.


ian, whr did u digitize your 120 film in Miri?
cus i have to rolls here to scan.
and where did u buy that 120film of your in Miri? Thx.

Bring it to Soo Chew studio in town. They'll eventually pass it on to me to do that. Located near the 2 Public Banks, at the end of High Street.

Beware the 'slow moving cars' there, I suggest you can park at the District Office for better road access instead of cramming into that roundabout at the fishmarket. It isn't such a long walk anyway.

I do dust removal and some basic restoration as well. (Different from the automatic dust removal by software which simply creates a blurrer image).

Request to write your username on the envelope so I can identify it's yours :).

Alternatively, you can also ask around other studios to do the scanning for you as I think most would offer this service, but I do not know if they do color restoration and proper dust removal.
