  5. They came down a bit on the rough side but managed to make it to the bottom of the hill in one piece. They had a lot of laughs and a few sore butts.

  8. Thanks. I grabbed my FTb, went to a local hill used for sledding, found a good spot, and waited for somebody to come down in front of me. I fired off a whole roll of Tri-X and this pic was the best.

  9. Great to see our photo of the month buzzing along. I've been collecting FL lenses and cleaning them up a bit. Resolution of the year #1: I'm going to get a Canon Pellet in good working condition. Resolution #2: I'm going out with the film Canons (F-1 and too many EFs) and shoot film! Yeah. Meanwhile here are my FL lenses, all 50s: 1.2, 1.8 and 3,5 macro. Three Canon FL Lenses.jpeg

  10. Forget the 19/3.5 Canon FL! I think you've already seen it.
  11. Alex, be sure to look closely at the mirror of any Pellix you’re considering. It’s made of mylar which is soft and easily scratched. Many previous owners tried to clean them ruining the mirror in the process. There are plenty of mint-looking Pellix cameras out there with mirrors that are hopelessly scratched. And a scratched mirror means fuzzy pictures
  12. Another in my series of sledding/tobogganing pics. This is an older pic, taken with my FTb and on Kodachrome film. Probably with the FD135/3.5. Kids were sliding down the hill on their butts.

  13. Thanks for the tip, Jim!
  14. Back in the days when parents let kids be kids

  20. Alex, I like your "life through a window" shots...very unusual, and nicely timed.
