Film Camera Week for December 1

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

  1. I finished the Bergger Pancro 400 film in the Mamiya 645 1000s, fitted with the 55-110 Mamiya Sekor f/4.5 lens. Since we have great skies in this early summer weather I tried out a polar filter, having not used one with the Pancro 400 before, and was pleased by the results. Here are 4 samples; the film was developed in PMK Pyro and scanned on an Epson V700 Photo using Silverfast SE software.

  2. Well I've come full circle... I used to love square format and now I prefer 3:2- It is a mind set but basically my taste is wide angle so this fits better ..I think ..in an over square format. Another thing may be, I am uncomfortable with the 6x6 Rolleiflex type viewing now. I don't trust my eyes and the loupe viewing I can't do unless it's right next to my eye...

    Hi Rick,
    You say you used a polarizing filer.. this is not a yellow filer but a polarizer ie gray filter... very impressive . You just blow me away with your images!! Great!!
     
  4. Chuck, find out what diopter reading glasses give you a sharp screen when focusing with the Rollei (or any other TLR). Purchase them with one of the "string things" that allow the readers to be popped on & off one's nose bridge but prevent "dropping" the glasses. I feel for any one with tired eyes, or horrors that be, "old, tired eyes" (did I just do a "selfie"???) , so use this set up for all my cameras, 35 & 120. Bill
     
  5. Thanks,Chuck! Yes, just a standard Hoya Circular Polarising Filter (CPL). It serves to darken blue skies and enhance detail in bright clouds.

  8. Can't tell for sure, but the car looks like maybe a '74 or '75 Malibu. Engine could be a 250 cid inlike six or a 350 cid V8. The bigger engines usually had a badge on side fender (like 400 or 454) although I've seen some with the 350 badge.
     
  9. One more from me for this weekly thread. A shot of the "super moon" from Sunday night. I used an Orion Apex 90, which is essentially a 1250 mm f13.9 mirror lens with telescope attachments. I cropped image on sides. I used this same lens in No Words for a digital image, but with the digital crop factor the EFL is 2000. Moon had not quite cleared the trees as a few out of focus branches at moon's edge.
