A 365 day thread for 2016

Discussion in 'Classic Manual Cameras' started by mike_gammill, Jan 1, 2016.

  1. If there's enough interest I'd like to offer another 365 day thread like we just completed. While I'm pleased with the way it worked, I'd still be interested in any suggestions that anyone might have. I'd be glad to act as facilitator again if that's satisfactory, but would also step aside (but still participate) if another member wanted to keep it going. I'll start with a picture for today.

  2. Great picture, Mike.<br>Great kick-off for the new thread.
     
  3. Thanks, Q.G. I'm looking forward to seeing what images you will bring to the new thread this year. The picture, btw, was taken New Years Eve in either 1977 or 1978. The Kodachrome 25 was outdated and my dad gave me all of it I wanted from our camera store. Free film and cheap processing: those were the days.
     
  4. My two classic outfits as of 1/1/2016. Hmmmmm, Contax or Leica? I say.....both!

  5. Hello everyone. Part of any scenic "tourist" tour, this island is just off a state park and a favorite for scuba diving and family outings. Common name is "Chinaman's Hat" for most locals. You might have spotted it's outline in several postings over the last year. Isolette 3, UFX 400 @ 200asa, Obsidian Aqua developing. V600 scan. Aloha, Bill

  6. Mike--thanks to you for all your effort in starting and maintaining BOTH the 365 thread AND the weekly thread. Such stamina! And the photos are great!
    Thanks again!

  10. Hello everyone. Sunday Farmers Markets are a highlite of the week for me.... I "starve" myself a bit on Saturday and have a late breakfast at the market.... In Hawaii, food that is delicious is "Ono", and the various vendors stamp that onto each plate!. I also stock up with the veggies.

  15. Rick, that's a beautiful little building. Love your capture of it.
     
  16. Thanks, Greg, it is a pretty little building.

  24. @ Rick Drawbridge
    I like how you captured the slickness and tonal range on your photograph re: Chambers Building. How did you achieve that look?
    I am a late comer to b/w film. I have only done the development stage, no printing. I have shot with Delta 100 and HP5+; and Tri-X at 400 and 250. When I have shot with Delta 100 at the standard ID-11 rated at 100, I sitll have some grain on mine. Or is it your photo downsized or something?
     
  25. Ray, it's just a matter of getting to know what works best. The combination of film and developer used on that Chambers image produces very fine grain, and the PMK Pyro developer contributes to that "silky" look by producing negatives with a very big tonal range. Careful scanning is another major contributor. Of course, at the size these images are displayed on this Forum, I wouldn't expect to see much grain.
     
  26. Thanks Rick.
    Is this the developer you used? Was it rated at ISO 100, I will give that a try. From your experience standard ID-11 developers would not achieve such a look? 120 format?
    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/123487-REG/Photographers_Formulary_01_5060_PMK_Pyro_Metol_Kodalk_Developer.html
     
  27. Ray, that's the stuff. It does tend to reduce the film speed; the Kentmere 100 I used for the photograph of the building I would have rated as 80 ISO. For the faster films such as Tri-X or Ilford HP5 I halve the ISO box speed from 400ISO to 200ISO. From experience, ID-11(D76) doesn't produce quite the same "look" but there are so many variables involved with film type, development techniques, scanning and post-processing that I'd hesitate to state anything other than an opinion!
     
  28. Thanks Rick :)
    Was it 120 format, was it also developed at @80 ISO or shot at ISO 80 and developed at box speed?
    Thanks again.
     
  29. Ray, it was 35mm film, exposed at a rating of 80ISO. The developer has great instructions included, along with suggested development times and temperatures for a representative variety of films, to start you off.
     
  30. And for January 16...

  31. Hello everyone. Many homes in Hawaii build stone walls around the properties of native black lava rock. While the walls are thick and massive, many of the almost delicate gates in these walls are works of art.

  34. Pick up an Albinar kit with 3 lenses, bag and flash. It looks like it just came off the shelf. Most comments I read are short and usually one word "cheap" and if I got it for free I paid too much. But once in a while someone has a kin d word for the lens. On Ebay the lens go for more than I expected so here goes.

  40. You suggest that we post our 4th photo here but there is only one a day. I
    would hate to take up that slot when someone probably has a better photo
    to show
     
  41. That's okay, Donald. I try to watch the time and if forum activity in general seems slow I usually prepare to post an entry for this thread. I do try to wait, though, because I also feel that someone might have a better photo that what I planned. FWIW, I've enjoyed your photos so please continue to contribute.

  46. Wait a few minutes, Donald, and post it for tomorrow!
     
  47. As it's getting late on the 25th, I'll cover it. I am looking forward to seeing what others will post.

  52. What a difference that Canon lens makes. Thanks for showing it a few months ago. Was reading you other posts. Nice thing about early Zorki and fed is a little lubrication and exercise and they work well. Many of the ones I got on Ebay that "do not work" ended up working better than the one that were listed as working. You really want a Leica M6 instead? Where is you nostalgia?
     
  53. Donald: I've shot the sharpest Nikon AIS Primes from the '80s. I don't know of any of them that could show me every hair on that horse. The Canon LTM is so sharp, it nearly hurts your eyes.

  57. Just one more where I mounted Fed 3 on tripod in darkroom with shutter openand used flash from a digital camera from various angles. F8 Canon 1:1.8. In all of these threy became very grainy when I used smart fix, light and shadow adjust or moderate contrast. I did not have this much degradation in the past. So i will probably have to rethink how much I apply them in the future since it seems that you give up something when you use them sometimes.

  66. Great work, everyone. I'll take the 8th. This one at a nearby coffee shop. In addition to purchasing their own choice of drink, customers can pay for someone to have a coffee on them if they fit the description. For example, one could buy a regular café latte for a law enforcement officer or a maroon and white for a Mississippi State student. Lots of fun.

  75. Seeing the 50 mm MC Rokkor image that m.c. posted on Feb. 5th reminded me that I have the Celtic version of that lens which I should use more often. For today I have an image that I shot last month using that lens. While a bit bigger than my f1.4 Rokkor, I still find it a handy lens to carry around. I think my all time favorite macro 50 is my Olympus Zuiko 50mm f3.5 which is a about the same size as many "fast" 50's.

  113. Hello everyone. Since starting my bit with the UltrafineXtreme films last fall, I have not used my 510-Pyro developer on it ! So, after a recent walk-about, I opened my last 70ml bottle and developed a roll of 120. Same time as the Obsidian Aqua, 17 min. The negs are about 1 to 1 1/2 Zones more contracted than the OA material, but sill within my "standards". Until I can brew up another liter of the 510-Pyro, I will stick with the OA.

    Can only hope he is well.
     
  116. Hello again everyone. The UFX400 film and 510-Pyro developer show the same excellent results I have come to expect with that film and the Obsidian Aqua developer. IMHO grain is equal to the Tmax or Delta materials. The prices of both film and developer are very good. First pic is the full 6x6 negative, the 2nd a 5x7 crop of the flower area.

  124. Maybe we need to celebrate Plank's constant and avagadro's number
     
  125. Okay, Avagadro's number for Mole Day (Oct. 23). Not sure what date for Plank's constant.
     
  126. Not trying to make this one man show, but couldn't resist this one since it starts with a question: Besides the cassettes all belonging to ISO 200 films (Fomapan 200, Acupan 200, Bergger BRF 200, Kodak Academy 200, and (barely visible) Fuji Superia 200, what does this bunch have in common?

  127. Any takers for today? The 16th is nearl over.
     
  128. Okay, a bit late, but we'll count this one for the 16th.

  134. Have you ever taken taken a roll and have it come out with nonsense? So frustrating
     
  135. Yes, a few times. I never noticed the two guys sitting at the table until I processed the film. The one on left is pointing at
    the television screen.
     
  136. Hello everyone. I was going to sneak this one in "yesterday" evening, but got caught up in the Australian Gran Prix on the telly. .. so digging into the archives, here it is. YashicaMat EM, FP-4, PMK-Pyro Aloha, Bill

  137. Nice start-off for spring, Bill. I got caught up watching the NCAA basketball tournament and almost forgot to check the
    thread.
     
  138. Picked up the wrong reagent and then did damage control. Kind of like the results
    00dqHR-561843584.jpg
     
  139. Interesting effect, Donald. What reagent did you use?
     
  140. Here goes, usual embarrasing stuff. Mixed up a new batch of Arista reagents. Grabbed bottle C41 (bottle A) 3.5 minutes then used mixed C41 developer instead of blix. Then wash and stabilizer. Soon as I saw film I knew what happened. Next day I said what the heck and ran Blix 7.5 minutes, wash and stabilizer. Negatives ran from almost black and white with a hint of color to a pastel effect.
     
  141. Well, I'd say that's still a good result. I wonder how it would look if you converted to monochrome and then sepia toned
    the final image.
     
  142. Something like this and this was with no conversion. I had a wide variety of results from one roll. Sorry more than 1 today. Birthday girls, have to clean scratches

  149. I think it is still the 27th somewhere. I was playing with my Super Paxette last week also by coincidence but nothing earth shattering. I did find an old piece of roadway and bridge that where road was rebuilt decades ago. Iwill put this in just to keep up daily continuity.
    00dr6G-562014684.jpg
     
  150. Looks like the 27th (Easter Sunday) was busy for everyone so we'll count this photo for that date.
    00dr6H-562014784.jpg
     
  151. I developed these last night and hoped to get something much better (did not happen)but since no one else posted I put in one of the better shots.
     
  152. Well, Donald, you beat me by a minute. I like the bridge photo, btw. I did take a black & white photo at church yesterday, but didn't get a chance to develop and scan yesterday.
     
  153. Been missing Q.G. in this thread. Hope he's okay.
     
  154. Getting late on the 28th. Any takers for today's image?
     
  155. Time out...
     
  156. Roleiflex Automat K4A, 75mm Tessar f/3.5, Ilford HP5 Plus, PMk Pyro. Yes, it is strange about Q.G. I see his last post on Photo.net was on February 9, and for a man who posted almost every day on some topic or other, the absence is disturbing.

  164. For April 5th: an image that I probably posted a few years back. It is two photos exposed separately in the camera and combined in the enlarger. Print was scanned on an HP scanner (don't remember the model) A lot of resolution was lost due to scanning at too low a setting.

  170. This is worrisome. I think you said you sent him a message previously. I hope it is like the McCartney hoax from 1969. Any other contacts?
     
  171. No. But his name came up a few times recently on Who's Online tab under community.

  178. Hello everyone, this is from the Fine Arts Museum in Lyon, France. A painting depicting the interior of a photographer's studio in the 19th century, with a young couple ready to have their wedding portrait taken. In front is a lady preparing to take a photo of the painting with her cell phone. I like the layers of reference in this one - a photo of a painting depicting a photo about to be taken, with a photo being taken of the painting. The image is a bit blurry, camera shake, I'm afraid.

    m.c. fitz, I can't believe how three dimensional that looks. It looks like a frame around a window to look in at a diorama.
     
  180. Just finished trying out some Panatomic-X from a 50 foot roll (expired 1981) that I received over the weekend. Thought I'd use a test image here for the April 13th entry. Rated at box speed and processed for 5' at 68 F in HC 110 dilution B. Scanned with Epson V600.

  182. That's right, Donald. Just in time for "Super Bulldog Weekend" only 18 miles away. Got that mug at a basketball game.
     
  183. There's still some time left if anyone wants to pick up the 14th.

  196. Q. G.'s last post seemed a little contentious but he was no stranger to this, did not have a thin veneer and I do not think that this would move him to avoid interaction. His work with the Hasselblad was respectful and his input was cerebral. Given this I am worried about his health. I can not say I agreed with him all the time but I also felt azn obligation to read everything he posted. I just hope he is in good health and hope to see him back.

In the middle of all this a Russian Volga which just does not fit in with this crowd in any respect except that it has 4 wheels.

  257. Thanks, Donald. If your photo takes care of the missed 17th, then this one's for the 18th.

  258. I'm trying to avoid posting two consecutive days, but the 19th (as the time and date are stamped here) is fast getting away. So, if anyone wants this date, it's still available. I'll wait until nearly midnight to post if no one has a picture.
    BTW, great work, everyone.
     
  259. Okay, I'll post for this date. Still have a few shots left from a recent roll of outdated Panatomic-X that I recently processed.

  262. Having just been to Latvia (daugavpils) I have been to many
    small private museums where every year they still scour sites
    of heavy fighting (some have not been thoroughly searched
    yet). Three years following up on some anecdotal stories one
    guy uncovered a German machine emplacement with a
    relatively intact M34 and some remains and lots of personal
    effects. Given your interest in WW II subjects I can send you
    some photos or info on these substantial collections.
     
  263. I read about the same thing in other Eastern countries. Certainly with the hatred for the German invaders the Soviet forces left their bodies where they fell to be reclaimed by mother nature. I've seen some lugubrious photos of equipment and bones grown into trees and whatnot.
    I'm a little reserved about these recoveries, I've seen photos of what practically came down to grave robbing pass in revue on Facebook.
     
  264. Nobody for the 21st?

  265. I can understand that, but the impact of realising that these events actually happened on the ground where these people grew up and there families experienced as opposed to others where the war was something that was occurring 7000 miles away is overwhelming or in the case of that Roliflex from Latina that was restored on a PN post, I spoke with history professors from Dagauvpils university there (my wife was there doing work for dept of defense) and they said that there was no doubt in their mind that it was recovered from battlefield. No one would have saved it unless they thought it was a war artifact.
     
  266. What I'm saying is that if fallen soldiers with their personal artifacts are repatriated or reburied properly I certainly am okay with their recovery. It's the dug-up medals and badges that end up on Ebay or sold for profit otherwise, that is what I frown upon. Recovery of other battlefield relics I certainly have no problem with. ;)
    An acquaintance in Romagne (Fr) runs a Great War museum. It consists of nothing but dug-up relics.
    I've missed the Rolleiflex topic I think. I've seen an article about a Leica Reporter that was found in a forest near Berlin a while back.
    I have also seen some dug-up cameras from the Eastern Front offered on ebay, but there's usually not enough left to rebuild.
     
  267. Just to clarify none of these were for profit. None were
    purchase for profit and were donated and the exhibitions were
    free. I think you and I agree on the ethics and morality
    regarding how and why they are used. It is
    a matter of making us understood. I have a very strong
    interest in history and at one time almost exclusively WW II. As
    historical artifacts they have a purpose. I have no use for the
    grave robbers. As an example there was a German officer who
    wrote 1,100 letters to his wife from Latvia. Before his wife
    died a short while ago she donated every single one of them to this particular collector/curator and his children visit him twice a year. There is a PHD thesis in there somewhere. But this speaks to his non .pecuniary motives and his sense of history. There is a story behind each item and he tells you.

  287. Hello everyone. Here is the 1st of the negs from wondering about the Western Classic & SOVREN Vintage Racing event at Pacific Raceway in Kent, Wa. during the July 4th holiday weekend. Saturday was spent with Brad Cloven, so the two of us should be able to keep this, and other, threads "alive" for a bit. Enjoy, Bill K1000 & assorted lenses, Vito II & Yashicamat 124 used, all with UFX400 @ 250 asa. Obsidian Aqua & V8000 scans.

  290. Hello all. My take on the same subject. In SOVREN, and most other racing organizations, all cars must have a driver removable steering wheel. Safety feature that enables driver to bail out quickly or rescue crews to get driver out of car. Bill K1000, 135 Takumar, UFX400 @ 200asa, Obsidian Aqua & V800 scan

  291. Really enjoying the cars and motorcycles. Looking forward to seeing more.
     
  292. Even the humble Volkswagen Beatle has a place of honor in racing. In the early 1960's a rugged, inexpensive (relatively that is) car developed from the then 1300cc Beatle seen running about America. Called Formula Vee, the class caught on here and in Europe and enjoyed a sizable class following well thru the 1990's. Stock 1300cc engine and VW suspension only. Bill
    00e2XM-564173684.jpg
     
  293. Interesting, Bill. It's all about power to weight ratio. When I was a teenager a popular use for Volkswagen Beetle chassis was to convert to a dune buggy (not a lot of use around here, but fun). A popular performance boost for the Beetle was to replace its air-cooled flat four with the more powerful air-cooled flat six from the Chevy Corvair.
     
  294. Hello again. Sensing that racing would be good for the bottom line, Volkswagen started sponsoring an "advanced" class using first the 1600cc air cooled engines that had been introduced to their line up, but with a more advanced chassis. It was named "Formula Super Vee", with FSV markings on the body panels for id. Tinkering from 1970 onward soon had the liquid cooled Rabbit engine powering both European and American classes, amateur and semi-pro, into 1990, Picture here is the apex machine development. Enjoy, Bill

    Monday! More from the car series ...
     
  297. Bill, was the 1970 engine originally an audi engine?
     
  298. Don, VW introduced 1600 cc air cooled engines around 1966 for the Beatle and for the Vans when the "new style" was introduced in 1968. I purchased the newer style as soon as the dealer had one and keep it going to 1989. Typical ac engine....needed valves around 30k miles almost religiously! The Golf/Rabbit was jointly developed around the time VW merged with Audi.. early 80s?
    I want everyone to know that upon introduction to SOVREN, Brad was off and running...doing his Leica and Rolli thing....as proved here, sprawling to new lows just for a picture ! Such passion! Bill

  307. Rick., isn't that a fun camera? Just wonder with all that plastic how many shots you will get over the life of the camera. 8 or 8M?
     
  308. Yes, Donald, I think "quirky" would describe it fairly well... Despite the sort of "toy camera" construction, the little triplet T-43 lens performs better than one would expect, but it seems that the cameras have a limited life expectancy, judging by the comments on the various forums. The version I used was the "Cosmic 35", a Smena-8 re-badged for distribution in the UK.
     
  309. I may be redundant and do not know if you read my other posts. I was just in Latvia where where some one gave me this camera as a present. He described it as a camera produced for students and novices to learn on, not as cheap. 21 million of them were were produced which is more than any other single model of any camera. Many of them are canabolised for the Lomo lens for lomo photography. While being Soviet it was made in Latvia.

  321. My pleasure, Mike. A few years ago, when I first came back from the cities to live in a rural community, I found this sort of creation a little tacky, but over the years I've developed an affection for the small-town approach to business. Kind of homely, I guess...

  326. Okay, let me see what I can round up for the 29th.
    00e4fK-564626384.jpg
     
  327. Here's one that may interest you, Donald. It's from a few frames shot with a BeLOMO Vilia camera, with it's Triplet-69-3 f/4 lens. I guess with a production run of over 2 million units, the Vilia must have a few billion images to it's credit, but I can't get very excited about it. I might try again on a brighter day when I can stop the lens down beyond f/5.6. Ilford FP4 in PMK Pyro.

    A preset shutter speed based on ASA. They have not made them like that in a long time. How innovative LOL. Seriously, I can see why you are not excited. It does not offer the element to learn something and move on. It is an interesting adventurous approach. These simple innovative quirks are interesting. Maybe because my first camera was the Signet 50 I was always fascinated by simple mechanical means of linking fstop to shutter speed etc and having a good lens. Just about every camera is a platform that provides shutter speed etc and the picture quality is really dependent on the lens. So my big thrill is the simple innovative facility that makes them fun. Thanks for presentation. Just when I think I am familiar with what is out there I learn something new about about how engineers come up with different innovative technology. Kind of like the AMC Rambler.
     
  330. Aperture and shutter linked? Is that the same as the LVS exposure system popular in a lot of mid to late 50’s cameras? The idea was that when linked the user could change shutter speed or aperture and have the other change so that overall exposure was equivalent.
     
  331. Mike, with the Vilia it's really only a calculation system rather than a linkage. According to the instructions, you first set your shutter speed to match the ISO speed of the film you're using. Next, you look into the viewfinder, observing an illuminated line of lighting situations illustrated by the usual cloudy/sunny graphics. Next, you find the tiny aperture lever beneath the lens of the camera; moving this will move a pointer along the line of graphics, and you can select the lighting situation you deem to be appropriate. Of course you can ignore the whole thing and just select any combination of aperture and shutter speeds, which is what I did.
     
  332. Hello everyone. Here is Brad Cloven and his Rollei working up yet another Corvette at the SOVREN event last month. K1000 & 135mm, UFX400 @ 200, Obsidian Aqua & V800 scan. Bill
    00e4tv-564665884.jpg
     
  333. Thanks, Rick. I believe I'd manually set it too.
     
  334. The linkage of shutter speed and aperture are not novel or complicated. Of course it is not rocket science, it just seems that some manufacturers went out of their way to be different but not easier. But there seems to be and endless number of ways to do it. IMHO some of them are needlessly tedious and counter intuitive. I do not know the exact number but I have 5 or 6 different Kodaks where each have different setups. The same goes for almost all manufactures. Personally (maybe because it is the first camera I used) the Signet still has the easiest simplest system tht has given me excellent results to this day. There are other setups that I just do not see why they are so tedious. And then there are others where I think this is so neat and easy.
     
  335. Donald- I had a great aunt that had a Signet 50. She had a ton of Kodachrome slides ranging from the time she and my uncle worked for Hershey's in pre-Castro Cuba, to some of their world travels after they left Cuba and retired. I was given several trays of her slides that I hope to scan someday soon.
     
  336. I know, 1 picture a day. But to me (ME ONLY) this is the greatest photo I ever took (I can not tell you why) I shot this over my shoulder as I was leaving Mystic Seaport in July 1977 looking up into noontime sun. It was with my Signet 50. Is it a really a good photo? I do not know. Maybe it was my obsessions with nautical themes at the time and just plain old luck.

  338. I found a few images from about 7 or 8 years back. I used a Tamron Adaptall 17mm f3.5 for this self-timer portrait, but not sure which camera I used. Likely one of my SRT's or maybe my Pentax MX.

  339. Hello everyone. Once a year I "test drive" the mellowing, half full, vintage 2009 bottle of Rodinal, just in case I "really" need it should the pyro stainers fail. Stuff still works like a charm! K1000 & 200mm, 100Tmax @ 80asa, V800 scan. Enjoy, Bill

  357. An "extra" from the roll I processed yesterday. Three shots were starter for the weekend thread. Here's another. The day before (when I took this photo) there was a dead opossum (around here we call 'em possums) in the road. When I returned home the possum was gone and there was this big hole in the road. Not really related incidents as the city public works was trying to find a leak in the sewer line.

  360. Lately I've used a lot of Ilford FP4+. I'm still learning a few things about it, mainly optimizing the developing time. With my developing set up I've found the FP4+ to have more exposure latitude than Plus-X, but the Plus-X for me delivers finer grain and better sharpness. However, I only have one bulk roll of Plus-X left in cold storage so I'm planning ahead. I also experimented with Arista EDU 100 as well.
    Great images, everyone. And thanks for keeping this thread going strong.

    m42dave Dave E.

    Mike,

    I am also using FP4+ quite a bit. Haven't developed my own but like you say it has good exposure latitude, suitable for autoexposure cameras and contrasty enough to use without a filter. I have also used Arista 100 with good results and haven't had any issues with it.

    Rolleiflex HP4 Plus its a little soft in the focus which would be my fault of course

  363. One film that doesn't seem to get much mention on CMC is Kentmere 100, manufacture by Harman Technology. In some circles it seems to be dismissed as a "budget" version of FP4 Plus, but it's a quite different emulsion, rumoured to have a lower silver content. I've had excellent results with it, but I prefer the grittier grain structure of Arista 100 that lends a greater apparent sharpness to an image, and more "bite". Kentmere 100 would be excellent for portraiture, with it's wide tonal range. Here's a sample image of decent size, from a Nikkormat FTn fitted with the Tamron Adaptall II 28/2.5. The film was developed in Ilford ID11.

  364. I remember shooting a roll of the Kentmere 100 a few years back. I think it was given to me. Don't really remember what the results were like so I'm due to give it a try. I can get 100' bulk from Adorama for around 40 USD (a little more than 1/3 the price of bulk Tri-X!). The FP4+ I've been using was about 55 USD, still reasonable. I think Arista 100 EDU is just over 40 USD from Freestyle. I don't think I really gave the Arista a good test as I was still working to find optimum developing times for HC110, which is the only developer I'm currently using. Still have a 24exp roll of it that I will use soon.
    I think when I've used the last of my FP4+ I will order a bulk roll of the Kentmere. One nice fact about the Kentmere: many sellers get the same price for the 400 as they do the 100.
    Just one more thing (to quote Columbo)- I really like Eastman 5222, but no one seems to sell it as short ends anymore. However, Film Photography Project sells fresh stock in bulk. Cost more than the Ilford film, but a lot less than Tri-X.
     
  365. Hello everyone. I should mention that myself and several other forum members "believe" that the Ultrafine Xtreme line of films (UFX 100 or UFX 400, both 35 & 120) are the Kentmere emulsions. For over a year now I occasionally use one of the emulsions from Kentmere while using the similar speed UFX film, process them in my Obsidian Aqua simultaneously, and it is near impossible to see the differences. Both emulsions show the same differences (100 vrs 400). Currently the UFX material is only on Ebay or thru Ultrafine, so availability is here in the US. For those wanting to try the UFX emulsions, a variety pack, either 120 or 35, is available. If you shot both formats, the addition of the 120 materials will please you a bit.
    Rick, is the writing to the right of "library", Maori ?

  366. Took thisa while ago. Signet 50 Tmax 100 and Ilford developer. I used a yellow filter. Actually I played around where I purchase children's colored sunglasses from the dollar store and fit them to the lens. Very sunny day

  367. Yes, Bill, the language is Maori, officially recognised in New Zealand as an alternative language to English but featuring very little in the day-to-day running of things, and with a declining number of fluent speakers. Public facilities like the libraries do their best to preserve "te Reo", as the language is known. Roughly translated, the signage says "The House of Books".

    Rick,
    I spent several months in NZ back in the 1990s (mostly on South Island) and don't recall seeing "Foxton Fizz" though I do remember Lemon & Paeroa which was pretty good. Also various snacks such as kumara chips, lamingtons, Hokey-Pokey ice cream, and Marmite in huge jars. I took a Pentax ME super on the trip, so one day when I get the time I'll scan a few photos and post them. D.
     
  371. Dave, I'm ashamed to admit that I don't know if Foxton Fizz still exists or of the sign is just a piece of teasing memorabilia. The cafe is not my usual haunt, but I must go in and make some inquiries. Nice that you have sampled (and survived) some of our New Zealand culinary icons; I have a slight addiction to lamingtons of the cream-filled variety. It would be fun, seeing some of your photos.

  377. Thanks, Donald. That looks like a relaxing spot. We can count your photo for the 27th since it was still that date in some time zones.
    Here's one for today to get caught up. This is a scan from a print. My dad handed me his Voigtlander Vitessa L with exposure set for me to take this photo. Probably around 1967 or 1968. I later photographed a parade for him using the Viogtlander while he was at work. Probably had Plus-X in the Voigtlander.

  378. Hello everyone. It's been a bit since I was here. "New" CMC here . . a Fed-3 & I-61 from a fellow in Canada. Here is one from "My Marina" test session (shutter curtain pinholes spoiled the thrill). Not a bad camera all n all. 400Delta @ 250asa, G filter, Obsidian Aqua & V800 scan. Bill

    Well, it seems this thread is back again (thank you) in the 1.0 version, so here's a photo to keep us going. Konica Autoreflex T, Hexanon 57/1.4, Walgreens (Agfa) Studio 35 100.
    00e7NY-565137584.jpg
     
  381. Glad to have our thread back. I believe we have enough days where more than one photo was posted that we've averaged at least one per day.
     
  382. My god! I was afraid we lost what I enjoyed most
     
  383. Relieved to see this thread back! Hope good sense prevailed.
     
  384. Long may it last... Here's one from the Konica SII, 48mm Hexanon f/2 lens, Arista EDU Ultra 100, PMK Pyro.

  385. I have an image for today. I had a roll of FP4+ that I processed over the weekend. I recently starting using dilution H with FP4+ in HC110 since it has a very short time at dilution B.
    00e7i7-565187484.jpg
     
  386. I opened my Baldessa thinking there was no film in it and lo and behold there is already a roll of Formapan so I figure that I lost it already s0 I squeezed of the remaining film and decided to try out an thought I had since I had nothing. I saved my D76 from previously and used it as if it was a 1:1 solution per Digital Truth chart. I got what I thought good result

  388. I've been trying to get out more to shoot but a silly thing called work keeps getting in the way. Still coming to terms with the Contax IIa, but slowly getting my brain wrapped around it. This is from a roll I shot with it using Rollei Retro 400S with a post-war Biogon 35mm lens.
     
  389. Take 2 on the photo...

  399. Is there anyone interested in posting for the 14th? If not I've just scanned some images from a roll of Foma Retropan 320. Using those to start the weekend thread but I can spare one for this thread if needed.

  401. A shot from a roll of Retropan 320 processed in Kodak HC110 dilution B and scanned with an Epson V600. While it is a low contrast film (good for portraits, etc) the scanner seems to add enough contrast that the initial low contrast isn't as noticeable. The negatives upon inspection do look lower in contrast than Tri-X, HP5+ or other films of similar ISO.
    00e8ZQ-565348784.jpg
     
  402. Two for one today, but I think we need to catch up on images anyway since we missed a few days recently. Great shot, Rick. That Arista EDU really shines in PMK pyro.
     
  403. Thanks, Mike; as you say, better too many than too few! Can't say I'm familiar with the Retropan 320, but it looks interesting.
     
  404. I have also found the 320 to be somewhat grainy for its ISO. To be fair, though, this is only my second roll and I've only used one developer (HC110). There may be a combination that works better or possibly I need to adjust my times.
    I'll have some more from the roll when I start the weekend thread later today.

  407. Great images, everyone. We have just over three months left in our 365 day thread so I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone has in the upcoming days. I think I still have some recent shots I haven't posted if no one has a photo for today.
    Just a thought: since we had Leap Year this year, isn't this thread really a 366 day thread? ;)
