Film Camera Week for November 17

Discussion in 'Classic Manual Cameras' started by Mike Gammill, Nov 16, 2017.

  1. Thanks, Rick. Not as much activity this weekend. I've watched a lot of college football today but will finish up some film after church tomorrow and do some developing. My wife and I are off all week for Thanksgiving. May get through a few rolls.
     
  2. Hello everyone. Rick's choice of Walter Lang's grave cross is well chosen. If one remembers history, World War I or "The Great War", ended on 11-11-1918, the same day Sgt Lang was KIA. Do a Google search & he shows up quickly. . .One of the last American victums of that war.

  3. Cheers Bill and Rick,

    Lang is one of 7 men buried at Flanders Fields that were killed that morning when the armistice was signed. I did indeed pick his grave for the photograph for that very reason.
    At 11am there was a small commemoration held in the center of the cemetery, with a delegation of American boy scout and girl scout troops there.

  4. Well done Rick!

    We had a very windy weekend. This is what happens in our coast when the wind comes. Cars get a nice wash when the wave comes.

  10. Rick - It could just be a trick of my memory, but this set seems to be even more stunning than your usual standard. I wasn't sure that was possible. But, these seem to have just a tad more detail and contrast than I recall being your standard. But, now I'm seeing the set shot with the Canon FD T70 fitted with a Tamron Adaptall II 35-135mm, and they also seem to have a bit more edge than I recall being your standard. I could just be getting senile, I suppose. Or did you possibly tweak your processing?
     
  11. Ross - It's nice to see someone using not just one, but two filters, and doing it properly :) Makes me feel like less of an anachronism.
     
  12. Nice shot, Julio! Do you mind if I ask where this is? It looks like a fun place to visit.
     
  13. Thank you for your comment. Stacking 2 filters is a good thing but I must admit that my wife gets a bit bored while I fiddle around. I forgot my tripod quick release yesterday is the reason I shot at 800. Just to get the shutter speed up.
     
  14. You're welcome. I didn't notice the shutter speed, and wouldn't have found it unusual unless I really thought about it. Living in Arizona, speeds in the thousands are normal.

    Thanks, Dave! The Ilford FP4 Plus I used for the series with the T70 is particularly suited to development in the PMK Pyro but it's more costly than the Arista or Kentmere I usually use. Other than that, nothing changed. I'm pleased you liked the pics.

  16. I seem to hover around 1/60th a lot using filters in daylight. Of course it depends on which one or combination. For landscapes I tend to shoot at f22 with the Mamiya which certainly takes a bite out of your shutter speed.
     
  17. Davecaz, this is Montevideo city in Uruguay, and the place is in the South Rambla near the Old City.

    The Rambla is a seaside (or riverside, because it is the River Plate, technically an estuary) avenue. Not the best place to be in a windy day or storm but very, very nice in good weather.
