View Full Version : Rangefinder database (list)
Hello, fellow rangefinders!
I'm making a rangefinder database (more like a list)
So I have a few questions:
would this be useful?
is there already such list?
how much information would be needed?
suggestions?Rangefinder list (http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=p-5yuQKArENHiebdqXEBwJg) (seriously incomplete)
I'd suggest you contact the people at Camerapedia and build your list as part of their database but RF-specific.
serial numbers with manufacturing dates would be fantastic
That's a fantastic initiative! I'd definitely refer to it if you bring it to a broader coverage, even if incomplete.
I just typed up a suggestion to add a column with manufacturer names and then noticed those are in various tabs. Just so everyone knows.
So, I took another critical look at the list and well it sucks. And I decided to this properly. I'll make a decent website with database with ability to search, sort, add images and maybe comments.
But for this I would be grateful for your help. I need to know which camera parameters are important. Especially exposure meter and flash sync parameters which are quite unknown area for me. :)
For now I can think of these parameters:
Aperture selection (auto and/or manual)
Shutter speed selection (auto and/or manual)
Exposure meter type
Exposure meter priority
Exposure meter range
Film speed range
PictureThat's about it. Quite a list, will be a bitch to collect but I live by the rule "I you do something, make it worth doing" :D
So, what do you think?
