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).

Came across these 10-year-old scans of prints I processed and developed myself 40 years ago. I liked Ilford HP5 back then but also shot Tri-X, and this was probably my Canon AE-1 and 50mm ƒ1.8 that I slaved over fast food fryers in order to save up for and purchase via layaway from Ritz Camera. Pretty sure I have the specs written on the back of the prints -- these were done for a Community College photography class, but I can't be bothered to dig up the actual prints right now. ;)

I just got my friend's dev kit so hopefully I can wrap up 5 half rolls this weekend and start some c41 home development! I would have liked to have these two under exposed rolls pushed but my lab doesn't push/pull color.

So these Nikonos III shots are basically like my early digital shots, but worse. Was blessed with good Monterey visibility at 30 feet. I chose to eyeball exposure stopped down to f/4 to maximize my zone focus depth of field. I stayed mostly at 1/60-1/125s using the natural light filtering through the kelp. I have a strobe synced with my digital camera and a video light, but didn't want to introduce backscatter with the vid so I turned it off.

In retrospect I should have used my digital to meter. Everything was severely underexposed and I expected that. Zone focus is hard af! Water diffraction makes everything seem closer than they really are, so my only constant is my arm which is 2.5'/0.8m. Imagine finding a subject that's moving on every axis and trying to decide it's distance all while you're also moving on every axis so by time you look down and back up at your camera you may be closer to or further than your subject, but you can't quite tell. Add to that the teenie rangefinder hole is really hard to see when you can't press it up to your eye.

I dug out my Canon 7 (film version) with the 35mm f2 LTM attached and loaded with Ektar 100; these are a few of the images. Scanned with Canon Canoscan FS-4000 (SCSI) and post-processed in Adobe CC.

Good Evening,

I started my film processing this week after a very long hiatus, and hopefully the film (sheets & rolls) survived the long trip to Mars...

This photo was taken with my Linhof Technika V, Linhof-Schneider 180mm f5.6 Symmar, K2 filter, on Delta 100. Scanned with Epson V850 with VueScan in control, post-processed with Adobe CC.

Regards,

Edd
