Film Camera Week for November 9

Discussion in 'Classic Manual Cameras' started by Mike Gammill, Nov 8, 2018.

  1. A tremendous variety of styles and subject matter; these weekly threads are on the up and up ! Here are a few from a Kiev 88CM fitted with a 50mm CZJ Flektogon MC f/4 lens. The film was Ilford HP5 Plus developed in PMK Pyro.

  2. Yes, a great start to the thread and some creative and high quality images. Thanks for the complements on the fog photos. My wife and I were on the way to work (we both teach at same school) and being on a county road I was going slow enough that I didn't mind stopping for photos. Main highway at 65 mph I don't stop so often, but probably should.
    I should have some more to post by the weekend. And of course I look forward to seeing more images from everyone.

    Didn't go far last week, so these are shot in or near my house. All shot with a Nikkor 55mm Micro the bushes on Plus-X, and the other two on Orwo Pan 125.

  8. A few with the Pentacon 6 on Pancro 400. My first 120 developed in PMK as per Film Box recommendation for 24 deg F. Very disappointing. Prefer HP5. Scanned BSH/V700.

    Two with the CZJ Biometer 80/2.8.

    Excellent images for all that, Tony. I eventually gave up on the Pancro 400; while it has a very good tonal range it seems to have a slightly obtrusive grain and just lacks the sparkle of HP5 Plus.

    I recently picked up a Nikkor AF 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6D lens at a local market for the princely sum of $15, which was about right since the AF was no longer functioning. Still, I'd been observing that this chunk of plastic has something of a cult following, and I thought I'd try it on a FE manual focus body. Despite being one of the most insubstantial little zoom lenses I've ever handled, it actually performs very well indeed, to the extent that I've ordered a working copy for the Nikon AF bodies. I'll post some samples, and I'd be interested to hear any other opinions of or experiences with this lens.

    The film was Ilford FP4 Plus developed in PMK Pyro,scanned on an Epson V700 Photo using Silverfast SE software.

    Nikon has often made zooms that were light and seemingly cheaply made but the lenses were optically of very high quality. Your copy certainly has delivered high quality images. I remember many years back one of the photo magazines tested the Nikon kit lens 35-80 f 3.5-5.6 and found it to be a surprisingly good performer. An inexpensive performer that I like is the Sigma HF 28-80 f 3.5-5.6. I have one in Pentax AF and Maxxum and like the images.
     
  12. While I'll processing some film this afternoon here's a few from the archives.

  13. A really old one scanned from a print. My two sons are in it. Now the youngest is 22 and the oldest is 26.
    I think the even was Wings Over Mississippi or something similar. At Bryan field in Starkville.
