Classic Manual Camera Weekend for March 17

Discussion in 'Classic Manual Cameras' started by Mike Gammill, Mar 16, 2017.

  1. We're at that time where some time zones are already at Friday the 17th. An experiment of sorts for those who are interested. I mentioned on the earlier Absorbing Modern Film Cameras thread that we might try letting one out of three images be from a modern film camera and see what the responses are. I'll start with a couple from my Spotmatic F and another roll of Panatomic-X.

  2. Now, the great experiment. I'm posting an image from a Maxxum XTSI which had a Maxxum 50mm f 1.7 lens attached. Film was Rolleipan 25.
    Looking forward to everyone's images regardless of whether they're all classic manual film camera images or a mixture.

  7. The bridge picture was manual focus because the Zeiss lenses are manual focus. Exposure was set manually.

  18. Few weeks ago I got used Fuji GW690 from bay seller from Japan . It is in almost like new condition . I managed to shoot couple of films in the very few nice days that we had recently . This camera is truly remarkable and must say I am very happy . It's my favorite one . (Of course until the next camera).
    First frame on both films came clear , because forgot to remove the lens cap .....also when I developed the second film , totally forgot to warm up the developer to
    21c , instead this film has been developed and fixed only at 15C . Regardless , there is no difference between the first and second film .
    I didn't do so many mistakes in long time , but didn't use a rangefinder in long time either .
    So here are few images .
    Film was Ilford 125 FP4+
