Do NOT buy one of these...

Agfaphoto Digital Photo Frame AF5135MS


I bought one in order to experiment with displaying video from my 5D II and when it turned out not to be very useful for that, I went into Lightroom, selected my entire library and filtered it to three stars or better then quickly deleted all copies and iterations until there were about a thousand shots. Quick export to JPEG, dump to SD card, plug in and watch.




Firstly, like Phil Askey at DP Review, I quickly learn that most of my favourites are from Digital M. Secondly, I learn that these screens are very high quality and much better to look at than a print in many respects. Thirdly, I learn that it is possible to spend over two hours eating a banana.


Finally, I find some old friends such as these two from an MP, scanned; Neopan I think but no EXIF (like the M8 and 9 I have no accurate record of the aperture I used...)


So like I say, don't buy one. It is very very time consuming!

The Pictures are lovely (especially the first one)

What was the banana like?


Thanks Jono! Even at this size you can see that a properly exposed piece of film has a gentler 'shoulder' of rolloff into whites...


The banana was is immaterial, as Lady Bracknell might have said...
