Film Camera Week for February 23

Discussion in 'Classic Manual Cameras' started by Mike Gammill, Feb 22, 2018.

  1. Greetings everyone and welcome to our new thread. As usual, post as many images as you want from your film cameras. I'll start with a couple of rolls I processed and scanned over the weekend.
    Harned Biology Building, MSU, Rollei 35 with Ilford HP5+

    The little Rollei 35 (with S. Xenar) is still going strong after I glued the shutter linkage back together late last year.

  4. In Starkville, the construction continues. Plenty of good photo ops as new structures go up. Sometimes I just park and walk around the area with my camera. I look forward to seeing more of your work.

  15. Several years ago I unearthed a box of old negatives dating back to the 1970's. With the rather limited scanning gear I then had available I attempted to resurrect a few of these images, taken during my time as a duck shooting enthusiast, but the results were really pretty awful, though I think I may have posted a couple to the Forum in various threads. The box resurfaced last month and I decided to try again, with much improved results. The film was Kodak Vericolor, but much of the film has deteriorated beyond redemption, and I won't waste time trying to salvage any more.

    The old negatives were all neatly filed with the taking information inscribed on the brown manilla envelopes. I was a working photographer back in 1973 when these were taken, and far more methodical than I am now, and this must have been a box of personal stuff I took with me when I changed employment. The camera was apparently a Canon FTb fitted with a Soligor 70-220mm f3.5 Macro lens.

  16. Great images everyone and a great start to our weekly thread. I'll be processing some more film and scanning over the weekend. I've really enjoyed using my Rollei 35. Found an old favorite that I've had since college to put on my SRT 101: a Celtic 28mm f2.8. Got for Christmas in 1978.
