    After a shutter spring tweak. There is less uneven exposure now, but the problem is not completely solved yet.

  13. We're off to a good start on our thread. I look forward to seeing some more images. I've serviced my bicycle so I plan to take a camera along on some of my rides. I took a relatively short "test trip" (about 5 miles) on the bicycle this morning and snapped a few images with my Minolta Hi-Matic 7S.
  14. I came across an odd little lens last week at a garage sale, a 28-75mm f/3.5-4.5 zoom with a Minolta AF mount. It was pretty obviously one of the creations of the Korean Samyang factory, but the only name on the lens appeared to be "QTII", something I'd not come across before. After a lot of digging around on the internet it would appear to be a "Focal" lens, an in-house brand of the US Kmart company. We never had Kmart stores down here in New Zealand until fairly recently, so I guess this lens must have arrived from the USA at some earlier point in time. It appeared to be quite well made, with clear glass and surprisingly heavy, so I paid the $10 the guy was asking and brought it home. I cleaned it up and fitted it to a Minolta 807si, my previous experiences with older Samyang lenses rather jaundicing my expectations, but it's proved to be a very competent little lens, notable for producing minimal linear distortions.

    Here's a pic of the lens and a few sample images. The film was Kentmere 100 developed in PMK Pyro.

  15. Nice images, Rick. The lens was probably one of the later Samyangs as the quality seems on par with the Japanese made zooms of similar range. I remember when the first Korean made lenses were imported to the USA: fixed focal lengths like 28 and 135 were decent, if unspectacular performers, but zooms usually suffered at extremes of focal length and at wide apertures. By the time J.C. Penney, K Mart, and Sears were outsourcing zooms from Korea the performance was much improved. Even Vivitar had a lens or two that came from same plant as Samyang. I recall that the 500mm f 8 mirror lens that Vivitar offered was the same lens as the Samyang. The first Korean made zoom lens that really got a lot of attention was the 18-28 (Vivitar marketed it as a 17-28) which performed well enough considering its range and low price.
    Bottom line- any of these later lenses that show up at bargain prices might be worth a try.
  16. A few I don't THINK I've posted yet- Galveston TX, January 2021. Film was my 1st use of Fuji Provia 100f in 35mm format. Camera Voigtlander R3m and the lens was probably my 50mm f3.5 Heliar, which produced varying results in the flat and/or rainy weather & light. In retrospect I may have gotten better results using my faster 40mm f1.4 Nokton Classic, but hey it's all over now so no sense crying, eh? In the end I'm happy with these and of course it's all memories of friendships and places visited.



    below: many or most U.S. coastal states' departments of transportation operate free ferries. The Texas DOT ferry shown here runs from Galveston across to the Bolivar Peninsula.

  17. Moving on, I traveled along the coastal roads out of Galveston making my way on all small roads, eventually veering north off the coast and driving all the way up to Nashville. This roll of Provia lasted up to Baton Rouge. Some of these I may have posted already, iso please pardon any redundancies. Additionally I also took phone shots of some of the locations and definitely posted a few of them around the site. Any film shots here that feel familiar may have been due to posting very similar phone pix. Again, hopefully not to bore anyone with the same ol same ol. :)

  18. Well I'm back...I just developed two rolls and I have one from two weeks ago.. I mentioned a Contax RTS with a bad shutter/2nd curtain. Well the plan was to take the 35mm ML that lives on the RTS and swap it over to the FXD which has the 28mm ML lens as endcap. As I picked it up the shutter surprisingly started to respond correctly so I thought; what the heck, lets see what happens. In retrospect , I only lost 2 frames so it was a lucky decision that paid off. I used the 28mm ML. Recently a lively thread about the Vito III which comes stock with the F2 Ultron was running, and reminded me I haven't used my Vitomatic IIIb/Ultron since forever, so I took the yellow filter from the Jupiter 12 and off I went last Saturday. Like Mike, I am working to get my bike roadworthy and took a walk to the "we sell everything" store to get a tire valve. On the way home, I found a "like new" bike being thrown away, so took that home with me. I regrettably didn't buy the complete tube because I was carrying the camera (valve adapter idea was false hope) . So since I couldn't' work on the bike on Sunday b/c now I really needed a new tube; I then loaded the Yashica FXD now sporting the 35mm ML from the RTS and shot that roll too. So; Contax RTS/28mm,, Vitomatic/Ultron and Yashica FXD/35mm ...all had yellow filters Film was Agfa APX100 souped in D76 1:1 Straight scans

    PS you've indulged me.. so I once again posted too many marginal banal pics
