Film Camera Week for July 31

Discussion in 'Classic Manual Cameras' started by Mike Gammill, Jul 30, 2020.

  1. Another couple from the 1st roll of Ferrania P30. Voigtlander R3m and I believe the Voigtlander 50mm f3.5 Heliar lens, shot at a local drag strip a few weeks back.

    I have been saying jokingly to my friends that I haven't shot any photos of Neowise at all, but I DID get a shot of these two comets side by side!


  2. Here are some samples from a roll of Ilford Delta 400 I shot with the Contax RTS with the 50mm Carl Zeiss Planar T* f/1.7 lens, that I pictured in the "What camera this weekend..." thread. I've not been happy with most 400 ISO films such as Arista, HP5 Plus or Tri-X in the 35mm format, finding them a little coarse and grainy for my taste, but the Delta 400 is performing very well in the Pyro developers and I'll probably standardize on this combination, for when I need a faster film.

    I'm liking the results from that Fuji Industrial film. Colors are a bit cool but it suits certain subject matter and shooting conditions. 100 speed is a plus, too.

  12. Yes, there are times when it really shines. I’m liking it well enough to have ordered it several times now. It does often seem a little desaturated or something but when it’s good it’s great.

    Who prints (or scans) your film and how good they are at the job matters at least as much the film that you use. Back in the day a lot of one hour labs did a poor job of printing Kodak and Fuji professional films because they weren't set up to use the right filtration. I've seen great prints made from inexpensive consumer grade color neg and terrible prints made from pro emulsions, with great prints made from the same negatives by competent printers. Unless you're shooting with severely outdated Brand X color neg film, the big variable in my experience is the lab--their initial film processing and their printing.

  14. Lately I've been using Richard Photo Lab in Valencia, California. They do a pretty nice job with development & scans. All film photos I've posted lately were done by them. I'm not sure they develop by hand but all my photos from them are scanned on a Noritsu scanner.
  15. Here is one from a recent romp into Honolulu for the medico's. Fed-2 / Jupiter-12, Rollei 80s film & Pyrocat HD. Film came up with more contrast 2k20-067-2020-08-04 010 bc bm.JPG than my "usual" Rodinal SS process. . .I think it wise to stick with the Rodinal for the 80s. Aloha, Bill
