These are some keepers from the first roll out of the Maxxum 7000. All taken with the 28-105, which is quickly becoming my favorite A-mount lens. I used Manual for some but ran the camera in Program for others to see how well it would do. The camera sets a minimum shutter speed in program based on the whatever lens is mounted.

I am on the fence about full time abandoning my Pentax Spotmatic 35mm in favor of my Bronica ETRSi 6x4.5. "My medium format is film"

Got this back from the Darkroom today. There is nothing photographically significant about it other than the fact that is from a roll of film that was exposed over two decades ago and stored in a dresser drawer. We don't have A/C, so it was subject to everything from 68 F and dry in the winter to 98 F with high humidity in the summer, year after year. I developed two rolls, one was a decade older and while not as good as this, most of the photos are recoverable. I would say about 35 of the 48 exposures are usable at least to the extent that they're recovered memories.

This is not processed, it is exactly as they developed and scanned it. Now I'm looking forward to the other 6 rolls and a Kodak Funsaver we found! Also found a roll of 110...JEEZ!

I had 'experts' tell me I was wasting my time and money and the rolls would be completely useless. Horsehockey!

Wow amazing. I always fancy forgotten/found film. I've received a few eBay cameras that had partial rolls through them. Unfortunately they were nothing good, but it's always a thrill to see what they might have taken.

That scan looks quite good for film that was used two decades ago!

Just wrapped up my fourth roll of 120 tonight. Multiple film backs mean I take a picture on Portra and a couple on Ektar and and... and never finish a roll. All four film backs were at 9-12 of 16 for quite a while. Going to drop them off at the lab tomorrow!

Captured at Porlock Salt Marsh, Devon (England) in October on my Konica TC-X and 50mm f1.7 Konica Hexanon lens loaded with Ilford FP4+ 125 film and developed at home in the Lab-Box with Rodinal. Currently it is my highest performing image on Flickr.

I thought I'd cross post these few images from the FP4+ film I rattled through the Minox 35GT my neighbour recently gave me.
Mighty impressed from such a small camera & lens and small digital files supplied by the processing firm.

Those are really great! FP4+ seems really nice, I only shot one roll of it awhile back, but I may need to get some more. The Minox 35s are plenty sharp, they are just too small and fiddly for me. I used a 35EL for a while but passed it on (for a small profit, film cameras are certainly appreciating).
