  1. Greetings all and welcome to our new thread. As usual, post all the images you want from your film camera. I'll start with a roll of HP5+ that I processed and scanned yesterday.

    Some photos from an early May trip to western Colorado. How fortunate to live in a country with such varied and amazing scenery.

    Taken with Praktica MTL 50, Pentacon Electric 50/1.8, Velvia 100. First photo was converted to B&W; I posted a sepia version in the 365 Day thread.

  13. Great pictures. I have to agree, anyone can take great shots in Colorado. The most consistently crisp clear images I ever took on two rolls of E6 were there. I guess it has something to do with the air coming off the mountains.

    Thanks. I've always loved the contrast between the desert and the mountains. A skylight filter really helps when shooting E6 film at these altitudes.
  17. A great start to the week's pics! Love that "Gathering Clouds II", Dave. I've been trapped inside all week by rain, wind straight off the Antarctic ice and temperature readings stuck in the single digits. I've put the time to good use, cleaning and dusting old cameras and photographing some of the more interesting ones, so I thought I'd post a selection of the results; picture of old cameras instead of pictures from them. I hope you find something of interest.

    Asahi Pentax S1 In my opinion one of the most beautiful SLR's, impeccably built and meticulously finished.

    Argus C3 The All-American favourite, "The Brick"

    Minolta Hi-Matic 7S A solid rangefinder camera with an excellent 45mm Rokkor f/1.8 lens

    Canon AE-1 Program A landmark camera in the evolution of automated SLR's

    Yashica Electro 35 GSN An iconic camera with a cult following

    Yashuca Electro 35 GSN.jpg

    Yashica Ministers
    Solid and successful rangefinders. The top one is the rare "700" model with a great 45mm f/1.7 lens

    Thanks, Rick. That particular area is a pinto bean-growing region with kind of a "Dust Bowl"-era feel to it.
  19. Love camera porn!
