Film Camera Week for December 8

  1. Greetings all. Time to start our new thread. I'll start with a few from a roll I developed and scanned over the last weekend. Not sure what will actually post as the site has gotten creative here- while I'm clearly logged in I get an error telling me I must be logged in to complete this action. Anyway, I''ll give it a try.

    The site does seem a bit "loopy" right now. Tried changing my avatar, went back to the original one and now it is alternately showing both. When I click on "My Profile" it just takes me back to the site's main page...

  12. Lots of great images to start the thread! I particularly like the "Cypress Bluff Lake" photograph, James. I took down a little-used Rolleiflex a few days ago and shot a roll of film, just to give the camera some excercise, and I'll post some samples. Rollieflex Automat K4 : 75mm Zeiss Jena Tessar f/3.5 : Ilford HP5 Plus : PMK Pyro

  18. The collapsible Elmar 90mm F4 is a real sleeper. Wonderfully sharp.
  19. Here are a few frames from a Neoca SV rangefinder camera, circa 1959. The camera is a Nikon SP look-alike, but it features a lens created by the Zunow Optical Company, a short-lived Japanese manufacturer that produced some spectacular lenses for Contax, Nikon, Leica and others, the most notable being a 50mm f/1.1 design that is one of the most sought-after lenses among collectors. The sole camera produced by this company, a SLR pre-dating the Nikon F, is credited with inspiring the Nikon design and is today a very desirable item indeed; the company folded mainly due to poor marketing and today the few cameras appearing for sale fetch very extravagant prices. Just how the Neoca rangefinders ended up with Zunow lenses is still a matter for speculation, but I'll have to agree that it's a very fine lens. The Neoca SV Deluxe features a f/1.9 lens and is a rare and expensive item on the auction sites, while my SV has a 45mm f/2.8

    The pics are from a roll of Ilford FP4 Plus, developed in PMK Pyro and scanned on a Epson V700 Photo using Silverfast SE software.

    I went out last week with a recently acquired Tower (rebadged Nicca 5L) Barnack style camera armed with a CV 21mm/f4 lens which has been sitting on the shelf since I acquired it several months ago. I had some expired Tri-X in the bulk film loader and I souped it in Rodinal 1+50. My scanner was packed away, so I scanned it with my m4/3 body using a 50mm Rokkor macro lens. The nearest place of interest to test this sort of stuff out is a local forest preserve 2 blocks from my home, which has a small farm cemetery (1840s - 7 graves) at the edge of the woods. fcPC049375.JPG
