Welcome to the Daily Lark, the rants, ramblings and musings of Andy Lark – serial opinionator, mover and shaker
Very Monumental video thanks for the great insight and reflection for my daily life!
Michael Clark – The HiLite was a snap to set up makes me think I could take it on location in non-windy einnrovments and use it as a giant softbox. A great piece of kit that. And the Elinchrom Octabank is of course also a great setup Legendary as they say!Thanks for everything Mark.
I bought an Instant Back as soon as I saw them. As Andrew potins out, the pictures that come out of an Instax cameras can be too perfect even while retaining that specific look that instant film seems always to have. But, & this is something Andrew didn’t really address in his review although his pictures bear this out, the Instant Back on the Diana+ takes amazing pictures! The colors are true, vibrant, & sharp espially in close up. I shot some roses & they are simply lovely. I’ve had a great time with the Instant Back. I was getting the hotspot in many shots but my replacement correction lens is on its way to me.However, I have one complaint about my Instant Back: it can shoot out more than 1 picture at once. Very frustrating. Like Andrew, I found that I’d need to turn off the power on the unit to keep from accidentally ejecting a picture but that doesn’t help if, no matter how gingerly I press the eject button, 2 or 3 unexposed films eject along with the exposed one. I’ve contacted Lomography about this & was only told to be extra careful when pressing the eject button. Well . . . I’m already doing that. And I feel this issue will keep me from using the Instant Back as much as I would like. But then, the pictures are amazing, & I tend to have 3-4 bad shots per roll of 120 film so . . . maybe it’s a wash & a non-issue in the long run.I’d like to know if any other Instant Back owners have had this problem. If so, perhaps Lomography will be more helpful. I’d gladly destroy mine to get a unit that won’t force me to waste 2-3 shot per pack! I feel prospective Instant Back owners should know about this potential issue before they purchase. Great review, Andrew!
