  2. I just finished today a roll in my (repaired) Contaflex Super B.. I have another roll film camera, an ADOX Golf patched bellows that needs testing maybe I will load that.

  4. Instead of the Rokkor 24-50 I used my Celtic 28mm instead (a Christmas present in 1978). Processed negatives yesterday afternoon. Still have about half a roll to go in the Rollei 35 and just loaded a roll of Kentmere 100 in the Yashica FX-3 Super 2000 with 45mm f2.8 CZ.

  5. I may try to take the three cameras I currently have with film loaded, my Mamiya RB67, my Fujica 35 Auto-M, and my newly acquired Praktica Super TLS somewhere photogenic, so I can finish off those rolls. I give myself 50:50 odds of it actually happening.

  6. I have some film loaded up in a couple of old Canons -- an original F-1 and an FTb -- so I'll take these with me as I head out this weekend.

    Hope to test this clean little Miranda dx-3. Picked it up in non-working condition (mirror up, shutter open) and after cleaning the battery contacts and a bit of exercise, it came back to life. Also changed the seals and calibrated the meter.

    I'm going to try to shoot with a couple of Nikon FA's I bought last year and haven't used before. Probably gonna shoot with a Nikkor 105 f/2.5 and a Nikkor 55 f/2.8 macro. I just moved recently and will be exploring the neighborhood.

  13. I remember the DX-3. Made at a time when makers were leaning toward more compact SLR's. Looking forward to seeing some images.
    Don- envious about that Petri Color 36. I look forward to seeing your images.
    I finished up a roll of Kentmere 100 in my Konica Auto S1.6 and and halfway through with another roll in my Yashica FX-3 Super 2000. Used my compact Phoenix 100mm f3.5 macro to start. This lightweight lens is a good match for this camera.

    Last weekend I went out shooting with a pair of Nikon FA's. I liked it so much that I'll be using them again this weekend. Loaded with Kodak Ektar and Fuji Provia 100F.
