Nice! Haven't shot tri-x in years, because Ilford is 20-30% cheaper. Which 28mm do you use? the ultron?

Yeah, it's the Ultron F2.  It's a great lens.
I've shot tri-x 400 for so long it's hard to switch it up.

I haven't been shooting much over the past year, but an absolutely unreal spot popped up in downtown Vancouver - right smack in the middle of the epicenter of 90's street skating in the city, Bentall Center - so I went down there yesterday with Tony Ferguson to try and get a quick snap before inevitably getting kicked out. We had gone a couple weeks ago with filming a clip in mind instead, but got the boot before he could do more than a warm up size version of the same trick from the photo. Once we looked at the footage we figured it would be more of a photo spot. Really glad we went back. Love how this turned out.

Big ol thick Jordan's and a flat ass Palace deck he could barely skate. Legend.

Nothing fancy, just my old Canon T3i and the Rokinon/Bower 8mm fisheye. I never invested in a better DSLR because my priorities were focussed on saving money to spend part of each winter in California/Arizona, and this little cam does the trick amazingly well for the price. I've got a couple film set ups that I've been shooting on for decades but the T3i is the quick and easy digital set up. I'll eventually upgrade, I just haven't been shooting digital enough recently to justify it at this point.

Jesus Christ, that Tony Ferguson shot is fire!

Finally said yes to a digital camera and I could not be more happy. X pro3 with a 56mm f1.2 and a 8mm samyang. I need to work on my flash game and whatnot, but its very fun and rewarding so far.

More T-Ferg. Beginning of a record breaking heat wave here in Vancouver. Little hint as to what we're working on in the second pic.  ;)

Question for yall:

Can this lens be used on a (not video) camera?

https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/673936-REG/Opteka_OPTSC37FE_37mm_0_3X_HD_Ultra.html

If not, anyone have recommendations for a good fisheye lens with a 37mm thread mount?

Lenses for still cameras work differently than video camera lenses. Most importantly, they dont screw on. Best you can do is screw one on over a prime lens and get shit quality pics.

Thanks for the info.

Latter question still remains, anyone have a good fisheye recommendation for fisheye with 37mm thread mount?

I have a modified Polaroid sx-70 with a shutter speed of 1/2000 and this adapter was just released so Id like a good fisheye for it, if such a thing exists.

Ahhhhhh yes, then you need the "video" fisheye. Never seen someone do that, but sounds like a great idea.

I did not expect someone to be shooting on a Polaroid though, whole different ballgame. A video lens would work better in that case. Polaroids dont shoot high quality anyway so if it will focus through the lens you should be able to get some lo-res shots. Be stoked to see what you come up with!

Yup, yup! The Ultron F2. By the way, what camera do you guys use? I want to buy a new one, and I've gotta choose from these three options: the Canon Vixia R800, the AKASO Brave 7, and the GoPro Hero 9. Obviously, I would love to buy the GoPro, but man, it's 400 bucks! So, my question is as follows: is it worth the money? Also, I've got another question. A guy in my city is opening a small business, and he's gonna sell skateboards. He asked me to take some pictures of his products, and I have to edit them. Do you maybe know a good product photo editing app? Something like https://photorelive.com/services/product-photo-editing. Thanks!
