Film Camera Week for May 21

Discussion in 'Classic Manual Cameras' started by Mike Gammill, May 20, 2021.

  1. Greetings, all and welcome to our new thread. Post all the images you like from any film camera. I'll start with a few from the Pentax Spotmatic F. Film was Ilford FP4+ processed in HC 110 dilution H.
    After decades of operation, Kellogg's Hardware is closing its doors. Not many family businesses left now. Lens used was Super Takumar 28mm f 3.5
    Free coffee offered to shoppers. Same lens.
    The store owner serves a customer. Same lens. My oldest son (now a chemical engineer) worked part time at this store while in high school.

  17. In the "what camera use" post I showed my prize possession a Contax IIa.. unfortunately speeds above 100 aren't working properly and various remedies have resulted in periods, measured in years, where it was "out for repair". I acquired a Jupiter 9 at a good price b/c it was cosmetically challenged. I also used the Jupiter 8 that I have which is badly scratched on the rear but seems to have no effect on the pictures; well none that I have noticed. On another outing I used a recent generous gift; a Nikkormat with the 28mm Kiron. I regret using a "variable contrast" filter as the results were much too dark for my taste. The finder was bright enough I thought, but the results were different. I'll also throw in a few pics with a Yashica FX3 2000 that I saw MikeG was using and reminded me how little this sees use. My sloppy handing though resulted in some dirty negs. The film was not entirely dry and the the permaggon sleeves left iittle white bits on the negs. When re-washing the cut strips I managed in some cases to introduce either scratches or more dirt/dust. I'm often my own worst enemy :(
    As usual Agfa 100 souped in D76 1:1 straight negs.
    Ok I abused the "as many as you like" option prolific I guess
