#83 A Very Novakian Podcast

We mentioned that Mike Novak was in Chicago town last week, and this week we find out what he got up to on his visit with friends and our own Johnny Sisson. Yes, that means lots of talk about “real” pizza, some stuff they call pizza and sell to tourists, dipped sandwiches and why a McDonalds does a roaring trade in ketchup sachets. In between culinary exploits, we learn more about the miniature wonder of the Rollei 35 and why scale/zone focussing does not make a camera useless, as well as comfort zones and Wirgins. ________ LISTEN TO THE PODCAST Podbean | iTunes | Stitcher ________ MIKE NOVAKflickr | Instagram | Beautiful Grainy Mush EPISODE 82 LINKS & REFERENCES Al’s Beef Al & Joe’s Deli Dino’s Pizza & Pasta Gene & Jude’s Lou Malnati’s Kodak Bantam Special Rollei 2.8e Rollei 35s Rollei 35se Heinz Waaske Wirgin Cameras Edixa Reflex Chicago Portage National Historic Site Perspective Control in Images - Focal Length or Distance?________ SUPPORT THE PODCAST Donate on Ko-fi ________ CONTACT Send ideas & questions for the podcast EMAIL LIST Sign-up to receive an email when each podcast goes live INSTAGRAM BestVintageLens | #classiclenses | #bestvintagelens ________ FOLLOW THE HOSTS Simon Forster Website | Ebay | Flickr | Facebook | Instagram | Twitter| LFPP Perry GeWebsite | Flickr | Instagram Johnny Sisson Instagram | Central Camera Company ________ BE LIKE KARL Karl Havens Flickr | Instagram ________ PODCAST THEME Octoblues Royalty Free Music by Kevin Macleod ________ #CLP83 #ScaleFocus #FixedLensClassics #Novakian #Rollei35S #ChicagoStyle #beefsausagecombolightdip

Is the effectiveness of a camera's winding lever enough to justify keeping it, even though Simon can't take a decent picture with the camera for toffee? Is there a Novak in town?

#81 The Noble Bokeh Panorama

We’ve seen much of Edward Noble’s excellent work in the Photography With Classic Lenses Facebook Group, so we asked him to join us for a chat about bokeh panoramas, Infrared, mono and false colour, and his prototype Zeiss lens.

#80 Percent Certified Simon Free

Perry returns, but Simon disappears! Due to some technical difficulties at the Classic Lenses Podcast UK home office, we lose Simon part way through the episode, but Perry and Johnny continue on unsupervised. Perry shares tales of astrophotography and lobster rolls from his holiday in The Maritimes, and gets starry-eyed over his new Topcor 3.5cm lens. Johnny discusses finer points of the Canon IVSB, and pays tribute to his teacher and mentor, Barbara Crane. Bit of a rocky one here without Captain Forster at the helm, but the boys manage to make it through the shoals of episode 80. ________ LISTEN TO THE PODCAST Pobean | iTunes | Stitcher ________ BARBARA CRANE Website Museum of Contemporary PhotographyStephen Daiter GalleryChinadaily.com.cnWTTW Chicago EPISODE 80 LINKS & REFERENCES Series Filters Laowa 15mm f2 Canon IVSB User ManualCLP #23: Nikkor 105/2.5 discussion ________ SUPPORT THE PODCAST Donate on Ko-fi ________ CONTACT Send ideas & questions for the podcast EMAIL LIST Sign-up to receive an email when each podcast goes live INSTAGRAM BestVintageLens | #classiclenses | #bestvintagelens ________ FOLLOW THE HOSTS Simon Forster Website | Ebay | Flickr | Facebook | Instagram | Twitter| LFPP Perry GeWebsite | Flickr | Instagram Johnny Sisson Instagram | Central Camera Company ________ BE LIKE KARL Karl Havens Flickr | Instagram ________ PODCAST THEME Octoblues Royalty Free Music by Kevin Macleod ________ #CLP80 #WheresSimon #HeresPerry #Topcor35mm #Lowa15mm #CanonIVSB #TravelPhotography #BarbaraCrane

#79 Return of the Dragonslayer

Perry is still hitting the road to New Brunswick in Canada, so we've asked Eric Sluis to take time out from shooting all sorts of weird activities that go on outside his front door at Mons in Belgium, to take up the hot seat. Having postponed "The Nigel Cliff Question" from last week as it was simply too colossal for the time we had, Eric, Johnny, and Simon tackled the question, "Can a cheap lens compete with an expensive one?" Of course the answer is, "It depends" but extraordinarily, that phrase was not used.

#78 Best Frenemies

We finally get around to answering your emails this week! Seeing that Perry is gallivanting around North America, we asked frenemy of the show and the man behind the constructive feedback summaries of our show on Instagram's @bestvintagelens, Ricardo Bayon to sit in the third seat and help us out. Topics include cheap vs expensive adapters, focusing screens, why it's difficult to adapt some lenses to other systems, what does the aperture pin do, and what's wrong with a Spotmatic? Plus a couple of questions that take us into the depths/pit of why we like lenses that are far from perfect. ________ LISTEN TO THE PODCAST Pobean | iTunes | Stitcher ________ Ricardo Bayon Instagram | bestvintagelens EPISODE 78 LINKS & REFERENCES HELIOS 44m-4 to Nikon Adjustment Camera Mounts Sorted by Register Garry Winogrand at Rice University ________ SUPPORT THE PODCAST Donate on Ko-fi ________ CONTACT Send ideas & questions for the podcast EMAIL LIST Sign-up to receive an email when each podcast goes live INSTAGRAM BestVintageLens | #classiclenses | #bestvintagelens ________ FOLLOW THE HOSTS Simon Forster Website | Ebay | Flickr | Facebook | Instagram | Twitter| LFPP Perry GeWebsite | Flickr | Instagram Johnny Sisson Instagram | Central Camera Company ________ BE LIKE KARL Karl Havens Flickr | Instagram ________ PODCAST THEME Octoblues Royalty Free Music by Kevin Macleod ________ #CLP78 #bestvintagelenses #frenemies #lensadapters

#77 Isabel Curdes: Epic Dicking Around With Lenses

Don’t let anyone tell you that gear does not matter! Also, don’t start thinking that if you have the same gear, you can replicate the work of Isabel Curdes, as even she cannot! Isabel takes us laughing into the dark places she feels most comfortable. Along the way we take a trip through some of the A-list equipment Isabel has made the most of, and then moved on. A Flex Body Hasselblad with a digital back, boring Leica Summiluxes, an amazing large format soft focus Cooke lens, adapting to her Fuji GFX, tilt shifting, adding elements to lenses and exploiting light leaks with large format. ________ LISTEN TO THE PODCAST Pobean | iTunes | Stitcher ________ Isabel CurdesWebsite | Instagram | Twitter dodho magazine, June 2018 Connected 2018 exhibition in the UK, April 2018 OnLandscape Magazine, Issue 155, March 2018 Sunny 16 podcast, Episode 117: Women Of Film #1, January 2018 Sunny 16 podcast, Episode 75, November 2017 Emulsive.org, August 2017 SheShootsFilm, July 2017 Jon Wilkening's podcast, Episode 26, June 2017 EPISODE 77 LINKS & REFERENCES Hasselblad Flex Body Cooke Portrait PS945 Lens Cooke Portrait PS945 Lens review at HKDonut ZEISS C Biogon T* 2,8/35 ZM ________ SUPPORT THE PODCAST Donate on Ko-fi ________ CONTACT Send ideas & questions for the podcast EMAIL LIST Sign-up to receive an email when each podcast goes live INSTAGRAM BestVintageLens | #classiclenses | #bestvintagelens ________ FOLLOW THE HOSTS Simon Forster Website | Ebay | Flickr | Facebook | Instagram | Twitter| LFPP Perry GeWebsite | Flickr | Instagram Johnny Sisson Instagram | Central Camera Company ________ BE LIKE KARL Karl Havens Flickr | Instagram ________ PODCAST THEME Octoblues Royalty Free Music by Kevin Macleod ________ #CLP77 #isabelcurdes #bokeh #ooftah #epiclensdicking

#76 C/Y Contax 'N' Zeiss R GR8

We went on a bit this week, or rather Simon and Perry did. Johnny went a way for a while to do some household chores, but sneaked back later hoping he had not been missed. He hadn't, because Simon was salivating over his friend's Contax and Zeiss collection that had been laid before him. So, a camera heavy episode, but with plenty of lots of Planar, Sonnar, and yes, Tessar talk to to keep you happy. ________ LISTEN TO THE PODCAST Pobean | iTunes | Stitcher ________ EPISODE 76 LINKS & REFERENCES Contax RTS, RTS II and RTS III Series SLR cameras Contax AX Contax Aria Review by Cheyenne Morrison at casualphotophile.com Baby Rolleiflex Horizon 202 Designed by Porsche: The Samsung ECX1Rube Goldberg All About That Bass ________ SUPPORT THE PODCAST Donate on Ko-fi ________ CONTACT Send ideas & questions for the podcast EMAIL LIST Sign-up to receive an email when each podcast goes live INSTAGRAM BestVintageLens | #classiclenses | #bestvintagelens ________ FOLLOW THE HOSTS Simon Forster Website | Ebay | Flickr | Facebook | Instagram | Twitter| LFPP Perry GeWebsite | Flickr | Instagram Johnny Sisson Instagram | Central Camera Company ________ BE LIKE KARL Karl Havens Flickr | Instagram ________ PODCAST THEME Octoblues Royalty Free Music by Kevin Macleod ________ #CLP76 #ContaxYashica
