Something from the M7 that I had three years ago. Couldn't get anything from the film's exif? Not a very high quality scan. Cheers, Matt.
Our living room fireplace's mantle. My wife has a thing for frogs.
It was a dull, dark day in the Scottish Highlands. We were tired driving all
day. The wife has having problems driving on the wrong ( ! ) side of the road.
We wanted a B&B. Stopped here. Surprisingly, they didn't have vacancies. Since there seemed to be no one around!
Matt...Nice! 4 More Days Till Film! What are you going to load for your first roll?
What color m7 is it?
Rayyan, thats one Spooky castle! They leave the back door unlocked in case anyone has the Nerve to sleep in there alone! Nice image!
First roll? That's a good question. I've got a lunch bag full of different types in the fridge. The M7's black. Would have liked a silver one.
Rayyan, and Matt. Very nice indeed.
have been IMMENSELY ENJOYING this Thread as of Late...
so much Talent & Atmosphere !!!
To Light & Love
Matt, the scans look good & i know there's a bit of a learning curve. Im considering the flatbed you have or a film scanner, the Plustek 7600i. Still researching. Your on the list for an X1! I cant keep up with you! Still saving for a 24 lux! Ashwin's a Bad Influence on You ( Me as well!)!
Are you using Mac?
One for Easter ( a little late )
Peace be with you all.
Rayyan....All Top Notch Work & Brilliant!
M7, lux 35 asph, xp2
Got the M7 today. It looked brand new. Immediately went out and quickly shot 4 rolls of film! Jetted up to UPS and shipped them off to NCPS for developing and scanning. Cheers, Matt
Matt, we need a glimpse of the M7 for Proof that you really have it !
Camera as requested by Steve. Lens as requested by rayyan.
My new M7 0.72 with 24mm Summilux-M. Photos done with D-Lux 4. I've shot seven rolls so far (two more then the guy i bought the body from said that he'd shot) Cheers, Matt
Rayyan -- those are some excellent, classic M photos. I look forward to seeing more like them!
Matt -- Looks great -- the M7 is the best film M I think. I may take some flack for that, but I have used the M3, MP (new), M6, and CL, and the M7 is the most useful I think. The electronically controlled shutter does not seem to develop shutter time issues (my M3 and MP both have, even after recent CLA's), it is nice to have a stepless AE for shooting slides, nice to see the shutter speed in the viewfinder. It is quieter, particularly from 1s to 1-30th. The timed long exposures are useful, and it is a great camera for long exposures because it will actually count up how long B has been held down in the VF -- it is really convenient for night work.
The 24mm...well, I am jealous. I bet it is fantastic on film...show us some shots!
I know no one asked, but since we are on the subject, here's my M7. It is an a la carte that I got right after that program started. Chrome .85 with MP style wind and script, and zeiss blue leather (sacriledge!).
Thanks Cindy -- I don't have a nice photo of it like I do with the black and white, but I have this snapshot in color that gives you a better look at it:
Hi gang, Cindy was kind enough to invite me to this thread, after I popped up in the Classifieds section. I've been shooting an M8 for the last three years, but seeing Helen and Eric's gorgeous work with film made me want to get back to shooting film again, at least part-time. So, I picked up an M2 and started shooting. The M2 had sticky/ghosting framelines and since I'm an obsessive shooter, I had to get a backup film M body and when I saw an M4-P in the classifieds here, I jumped on it!
The M4-P arrived today, along with five rolls of C41 color film! Thanks, Sam!!
Here it is, all ready to go with my Jupiter-8 mounted:
Here's a couple of photos from the first roll of ISO 400 C41 "SureFine" film I ran through it (Walgreens' scans, one converted to B&W, the other tweaked a wee bit for color balance):
And here's a few from the M2, 35/3.5 Summaron LTM on expired Kodak Gold 200 and again, a Walgreens' scan (converted to B&W in LightZone) :
And a couple from the Jupiter-8/M2/Kodak Gold (again converted to B&W in LightZone) combo:
And here's the M2 with the Summaron (formerly Helen's, natch):
Whoa, that got long.
Maggie O: Those are wonderful. The B&W and the color are quite good. Nice grain and tonality. I'm just getting back into film also, although, I'm still waiting for mine to get back from NCPS. Based on your quality, I should have gone to Walgreens. The portraits (parents? and cat) are great captures. And, your cameras and lenses are very cool!
Maggie, congrats on the M4-P! The IQ on these are Fantastic! Looking forward to more! Glad your here! Thanks Cindy !
