Film Camera Week for August 10

Discussion in 'Classic Manual Cameras' started by Mike Gammill, Aug 9, 2018.

  1. Cantal, France. Nikon FM2n, Provia, 50mm.


  2. Alta Terra hotel, Lavigerie, Cantal, France. 24mm, Velvia.

  3. Near Le Claux / Cheylade, France. 24mm, Velvia.

  4. Gotta love those Velvia skies......
  5. Hard to beat a FN2n. How did the airlines deal with film and X-rays. Looks great.
  6. I asked for a hand check at each of four security checkpoints. Three obliged without x-rays. One put my lead lined film bag through the x-ray machine, which probably showed them a big black square, and then they didn't even open it to look at the contents!
  7. Aside from the Pentacon Super, the L-series Prakticas are the pride of Praktica production. I have a good sampling of them, and they are straight-forward and reliable.

  8. 2k17-087-003 ces26 rr.jpg Hello again. I believe a relative of Mr. Farron's "Tex Rat" is living close to me here in Tulalip. I have spotted this mutant sub species of Rodentia several time when it delivers it's driver to the Stanwood Farmers Market on Fridays. A friend of mine from U of Wa. has named it "Wa Wat". Aloha from the Mainland, Bill
  9. I had previously posted photos sourced by the processor who emails me photos and I pick up negatives when convenient. The files emailed are 72 dpi. What a difference when I scan the negatives. I said before that they seemed grainy. Here are some of the scanned negatives yashicamat scanned 8-10-18I.jpg yashicamat scanned 8-10-18 BWI.jpg yashicamat scanned 8-10-18.jpg yashicamat scanned 8-10-18B.jpg yashicamat scanned 8-10-18 BWB.jpg yashicamat scanned 8-10-18H.jpg yashicamat scanned 8-10-18D.jpg

  12. Hello again. Don, your picture just above mjferron's post is showing a "bleed" from Kodak's system of letters/numbers used on 120 film. Was your film 120 Kodak? This bleed-thru was first seen 2-3 years ago with Kodak's TMY / TMX films in 120. Might you still have a current batch of this film so emulsion numbers can be given to Kodak? Their response to the b/w "event" was very professional. People who use this film need to be alerted to a potential bleed thru to any work. Bill

  13. Actually that is portra 800 film that i converted to BW with photoshop. I noticred that also. It also noticed on the color photo. I guess I will contact Kodak about this also
  14. Four frames from a roll of Ilford HP5 Plus developed in PMK Pyro. The camera was a Mamiya 645 1000S fitted with the Mamiya Sekor 55-105mm f/4.5 lens.

    Notice that it's "egg" not "eggs"... I don't eat out very often in this expensive little country...
  16. Continuing to love the results from that Mamiya 55-105, Rick.
  17. Thanks Mike. I'm torn between the Mamiya 645 1000s and the Bronica ETRs when it comes to 645 format, but that Mamiya 55-110 zoom lens often tips the balance.
  18. Found a roll of UFX400 (exposed) rattling around in a Fed kit, popped it into my OA and. . . . vintage car pictures from last month. V800 scanned. Here are two. Aloha from the Mainland, Bill 2k18-054-004 ces5 bc.jpg
