    You mean you added the vignettes in post-production?

    Sorry, but I have to let you know that I think either the camera is bad or the lens has problems.

    The smear and hazed look reminds me of oil on the lens.

    Pls have it checked by someone who knows about cameras.
    If you can't find any other help, I will be in this outing :

    You can look for me and I can help you take a look at camera/lens.
    But I'm no film use expert.
    (Sorry, but I don't have much free time otherwise, so other time arrangements is not possible)

    There are other film users there too, so they may be able to advise as well.

    Depends on weight, size and required speed. I would guess something between $10 to $100, depending on the mentioned parameters.

    P.S. I kind of like the "glow" too, though it ruined some shots

    I see. I personally find that a bit overdone, and to be honest such obvious vignettes are really quite tacky nowadays. That's my opinion though, can consider for future shots!

    My friend I have finally rediscovered an old link which I think will delight you.

    http://www.lungov.com/wagner/classcam.html



    Oops home link gone...re route

    http://www.lungov.com/wagner/camerast1.html

    And this is nice although I do not necessarily agree with his views on wide angles...Note. Personally I always have a fast fifty in my kit (or equivalent fov)...always!

    Thanks for the share! Its a good read.
    After starting up using a petri with 45mm prime, i think my preference is with 35mm, especially as i like documentary style photography more than any other genres. Near 50mm always leaves much to be desired when it comes to landscape and environmental portrait, especially when its your only lens!!

    "Itís all about a camera and lens that he could operate blindly."
    I cant express how much i agree with this statement. I think it is the familiarity with your gear and user friendliness of the equipment that lets you 'paint' your photograph. Nothing worst than standing in front of your subject, meter, frame, focus, take the shot, kind of process especially when what you went is the natural reaction/expression in candids!

    Speaking of 'painting' the image,I am reading a book titled "Photography Theory in Historical Perspective".
    In the book there is comparisons made to mediums that were popular in that era, and the reason for rise of photography as a documentative medium.
    It set me thinking alot with chapters such as "straight or composed photography: the impact of the digital","photographs as iconic index of the reality represented","painting-like photographs versus photo-like paintings".
    From what i interpret of reading these, i think the author meant to say that photography triumphed painting in the era past as a documentative medium due to the mobility,and different angles it is able to be projected, and the truthfulness of the photograph itself, as a representation of 'what has been' and 'what will be'.
    That being said, i am totally agreed on what this article i read some time ago said.(http://blog.vincentlaforet.com/2015/...-all-but-pros/)
    For digitals, i think we've already reached an era of 'obsolete improvement' where the general comsumers does really need/couldnt tell the obvious advantages of the system.
    As for film/analog photography, it will live on for people who like the 'feel', and chases the sentiment instead of perfection.

    Thanks for spending time reading my babbling! =D
