There really is something about these shots that capture a particular era and style.
I would fully expect them to be featured in my favourite mag of the moment:
Black & White Photography Magazine.
Thanks for sharing.

a few shots from a roll of Kentmere Pan 400 (nice cheap black & white film). Shot with a Samsung EXC1 (very strangely shaped camera...looks like a camera batman would use)

This is from the first roll out of my 1942 Argus A3. Unfortunately it has some light leaks around the lens. I checked when I worked on the camera but nothing showed up. This one isn't too bad, I might be able to mess with it in Darktable when I get home. Film is Rollei Retro 80.

Other than the light leaks this appears to be a very capable camera. The lens is pretty sharp and performs well for the vintage.

I shot the entire roll with Sunny/16 because I was switching back and forth between 3 cameras and didn't want to mess with a meter.

How do you know that the leaks are around the lens and not on the back of the camera? Often if the seam near where the exposed film gets rolled up on the take-up spool is at all compromised to light, you get stuff like that. Typically the shutter should stop leaks from everywhere forward of itself from showing up on film.

The camera doesn't use light seals on the back.

The lens collapses into the camera body when not in use. The shutter sets well-forward of that and is actually out near the end. The leaks occur at the intersection of the lens mount and the part that telescopes. And, this model is known for it. There doesn't seem to be a consensus among restorers and repair people on the best way to fix it.

At any rate I have so many cameras that need a roll of film through them I'm not going to worry about it. It may be 2 years before I cycle back around to it.

This photo shows the lens extended with the shutter lever way out near the end. Photo credit to camerapedia.

I shot some LomoChrome Metropolis 35 mm for the first time. It is an ISO 100-400 film which I shot at 200 with a Nikon FG 20 and the Nikon Series E 50 mm f/1.8. It is an interesting film stock with desaturated colours. They turned out a bit lighter than what i was expecting and I think the prints looked better than the jpgs. I have two more rolls so I'll try a different camera and ISO to see what the results are. I think I would prefer the results if they were just a tad darker.

I like the Metropolis look. I have a roll of 110 I need to shoot. I can't decide though if they're too light or if they need a bit of contrast. They all seem different. The top photo is a little bright on the right. The middle one looks just about right, and the bottom looks like it needs a little more contrast. All in all, it's a good look.
