Film Camera Week for August 31

Discussion in 'Classic Manual Cameras' started by Mike Gammill, Aug 30, 2018.

  1. Welcome everyone to our new thread. As usual post all the images you want from your film camera. For those new to the thread, images from any film camera are welcome here: classic manual, modern, or hybrid (like classic manual lens on modern camera or modern lens on classic, for example an AF Nikkor on a Nikkormat).
    I'll start with some shots from my Olympus XA. Film was Plus-X processed in HC110 dilution H.
    Barn on MS Hwy 8, just east of Grenada.
    All Saints Episcopal Church in Grenada
    morning "fuel up"
    Typically I use f 5.6 to f 8 when in shade or mix of sun and shade, f11 for sunlight
    Can't resist an occasional photo of church sanctuary from balcony- usual when I'm running sound board. The balcony rail is the ideal place to steady the XA with the slow shutter speed needed. I used the +1.5 compensation to prevent light from large window from causing underexposure.

    I'll likely have more this weekend as it is Prairie Arts Festival in my town this weekend.
    Looking forward to seeing everyone's images.
  2. Aviation Days at the Dutch National Military Museum




    Carl Zeiss Werra I, 5cm f/2.8 Tessar, Kodak Double-X
  3. Awesome shots, Rick. I could look at airplanes all day. The tones from Double-X really work well for these aircraft.
  4. From Tammisalo, Pentacon Six TL, Zeiss Biometar 80 2.8, don't remember the film and developer.





  5. Ceeape Myrtle. Nikon FM2n, Zeiss Milvus 50/1.4, B+W 040 orange filter, Fomapan 400. 2018 ab&w 13 1.jpg
  6. Should have a few more in the next few days taken with other cameras. Shame I didn't have the time to go inside the Museum. Couple of really nice old Warbirds in there.
  7. Sun and shade on gravel. FM2n, Nikkor 105/2.5 ais, B+W 022 medium yellow filter, Fo 2018 ab&w 13 2.jpg mapan 400.
  8. Cypress Noxubee Refuge. FM2n, Milvus 50/1.4, B+W 040, Fomapan 400. 2018 ab&w 13 15.jpg
  9. Water tower. FM2n, Milvus 50/1.4, B+W 090 red filter, Fomapan 400. 2018 ab&w 13 22.jpg

    Just sent two rolls away for processing this week, so hopefully might have them back by next week.

    Another thrift store find was this nice little Tokina SD 70-210 zoom. Nothing I was looking for really, but for $5 I was happy to give it a home. And it looks like it was made to match my Kiev. :)

  13. Last of the trip. From the Fortunies Church, near Dienne, Cantal, Auvergne, France. FM2n, 24mm 2.8 N.C. on Provia.

  14. This week I shot a film at our local horse racing track, sadly beginning to look a little derelict owing to the decline in popularity of the sport. I used a Yashica FR1 fitted with the Tamron Adaptall II 35-70mm f/3.5 CF Macro (Model17a), and the film was Ilford FP4 Plus developed in PMK Pyro.

  15. m42Dave- That Tokina IMHO is one of the better compact 70-210 zooms. I have one in C/Y that is a good performer. The compactTamron Adaptall 70-210 is also good.

    That's good to know, Mike. I'll look forward to trying it out.
