Film Camera Week for December 1

Discussion in 'Classic Manual Cameras' started by Mike Gammill, Nov 30, 2017.

  1. Greetings, all. Welcome to our weekly thread where everyone is welcome to post images from their film cameras. As many images as you like. I'll start with some that I processed and scanned earlier this week.

    Here are three from the Pentax ES II, SMC Takumar 55/1.8, Fujicolor 100.

    After fixing a broken meter switch, sticking mirror, and replacing the seals, the ES II seems to be working just fine. Auto exposure is accurate and the Takumar 55/1.8 is a fine performer, as expected.

  11. I've just returned from a week visiting our outer islands, so I have a few marine-flavoured images for, a change. Traveling light, I took a Nikon FE fitted with a Zoom-Nikkor 35-70mm f/3.3-4.5 lens, not the most reputable of zooms but good enough for my holiday snapshots. The film was Ilford FP4 Plus developed in PMK Pyro. I have a roll of Bergger Pancro 400 to finish in a Mamiya 645 1000S, so hopefully I will post a few more images, later in the weekend.

  13. couple of firsts for me - first roll with a new-to-me Yashica D, and actually my first roll of 120 film ever too. Yes, I'm late to the party, I guess :)

    Film is HP5, in HC110 dil. H.

  14. Nice work, Wouter! There's something addictive about square pictures...

  15. Thanks - compositing square is probably the hardest thing for me, since I'm very used to 3:2.... but it's nice, and a good exercise to "watch differently".
  16. Another "Square Head" ! 99% of my "square" work is done without the intention of cropping into a "rectangle" print. Thankfully, enough people see the beauty of the format. You will find that with a finer grain film & appropriate developing, even landscapes can be "squared". Here, YashicaMat EM, G filter, 100Tmax & 510-Pyro. V600 scan. 2k7-084-002 m ces3 bc sqr.jpg Bill
  17. If you do get a bug to use the 6x6 format with landscapes, look into Rollei Retro 80s film. It has a blue sensitivity that is almost like shooting outdoors with a K-2 filter. I find 3.0ml of Rodinal in my 450ml tanks with Semi Stand developing is great Use a modified SS time sequence of 30sec of constant agitation to start with and (2) ez "flips" @ 2, 5, 10, 20, 40 min's with the dump at 60min. Care is needed with the fixer, time being NO MORE than 2x clearing. Bill
