    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    The annual country trip was held last Thursday. (This may need some explanaion).
    1) Its about (real) football.
    2) In Norway.
    3) We have two championships on the top level: One is played as a series where all teams in the league meet eachother twice. The other is a cup where in principle all teams down to a certain level are participating and the top two levels join after two rounds.
    4) England and Norway are probably the last two countries where the cup(s) still is/are big deal (the Brits have two of them to be sure).
    5) The aforementioned country trip is the first match where our team joins in - mostly to meet a team that plays two or three levels below us. Fun. This year we won 12-1 (in real football thats outragous and even more fun).

    Interesting, right?

    My little Sekonic handheld has been kidding me a bit lately, so pics are dark/contrasty. M4-P, ZM 4,5/21 and Neopan 400CN

    Nice series, Leif. I love the contrasty processing, really adds a timeless quality to the images.

    Nope, in Germany it's very important too. Bayern Munich won yesterday against Werder Bremen, 80.000 spectators and big party in Berlin where the final always is/was.

    Here's a few more from the M2 + 35/3.5 Summaron + Ektar 100; this time, scanned with a Plustek OpticFilm 7300:

    MCB, Pioneers Park, May, 2010


    Sandstone Columns, Pioneers Park, May, 2010


    Michael, Pioneers Park, May, 2010


    Wedding Photographer, Pioneers Park, May, 2010


    The Plustek scans have a different quality than the ones from the Nikon, but I haven't been able to put my finger on what exactly it is. I do know they needed a bit more spotting, but that might just be because the negs have been out of their sleeves more at this point.

    Thanks all. Just back from another match - victory. In the series this time.

    I stand corrected re. the German cup! Had the final been a week or two earlier, I could have gotten some of the fun in Berlin!

    Thanks, Steve! The Ektar 100 is pretty, if inconsistent, I think. But I've only shot the one roll, so what do I know?!?!?

    Maggie,
    I'm really enjoying all of your scans in this thread and the other thread.
    I think there is more subtle detail in the Nikon scans (for instance in the columns).

    I have a roll of Ektar in my bag, and I'm trying to figure out how i want to use it. But I'm having a hard time pinpointing it's "look", as the results I've seen with it seem to be all over the board. The best I can tell is that it's not at it's best at high noon on a sunny day. What do you like about it, when do you use it?

    This was a bright, but cloudy day. I really didn't have to do anything in post except de-saturate a little. The colors were just a little too intense right out of the bag. I desaturated mostly the red and slightly in the green and a very tiny overall desaturate.

    Ektar seems to demand the exposure to be right on. If not, the colors seem to shift. I have been using Ektar about 90% of the time that I use color (135 and 120) for the last year.

    I sent a roll of 135 to Walgreens for development and had the prints made, just to see how they printed at a lab (if you can call it that). They were shots from the Red Canyon in Utah. They came back with the sky a most hideous color and the red rock was way too red, so I think Ektar tends to be pretty highly saturated. I scanned those negs and they came out beautiful. If exposed right, the colors can be tweaked...and it doesn't take a lot of post...mostly just a little tweak to bring the colors in line.

    Fond du Lac, Wisconsin hosted the Foot of the Lake re-enactment over the weekend at Galloway House and this Steam Belt Tractor was there.
    My husband remembers stories of his grandpa going with threshing crews from Kansas to Canada and back to Wisconsin in his younger day. They worked with a tractor like this. These things only go about 2 MPH down the road.
    I believe that the Minneapolis on the tank was the manufacturer...later the company became Minneapolis Moline.

    Some great stuff here! I really like those last shots khc, and Leif, those shots from the game are great. I love the perspective of the 21/4.5...when I saw it I was wondering if you were using the 21mm f/3.4 super angulon, because it had that great old time, yet zero distortion look. It's good to see the 21/4.5 keeps up that same look. Too bad of course that it does not work very well on the M9...
    My photos are here: http://www.stuartrichardson.com and more recent work here: http://stuartrichardson.tumblr.com/ Please have a look at my book!

    Works perfectly using Cornerfix.... Because of it's excellent characteristics (tiny, super sharp and distortion free), it's the one lens I am prepared to use a clunky solution like cornerfix for the M9.

    Ahhh... i wish I could join the conversation on the M9....
    not anytime soon i guess.... but the 21mm focal length is something on my list that I would like to try out. Would love to see more of them

    Is old style 21mm lenses work really that bad on M9?

    Thanks

    The Man in Brown brought me an Epson V750 this afternoon. I've been playing around a little just to get to know it, and I must say, I am not at all disappointed. The SilverFast software is definitely better for B&W than the Epson software, although the Epson software is much easier to use. The SilverFast UI is clunky at best.

    Congratulations on the new scanner. Hang in there with Silverfast. It really does work well with the Epson once you get the hang of it.
    Your scan looks very nice. I like the tones in this one.

    Cindy & Tonkengirl: does sliverfast really have that much higher performance effect on black and white scan? I was using a Epson 4490. (Well..it's just broken awhile ago and now I am just looking for a new one..)

    Thanks steve, maggie, tokengirl, cindy, lloyd, matt and all.

    The Plustek scans have a different quality than the ones from the Nikon, but I haven't been able to put my finger on what exactly it is. I do know they needed a bit more spotting, but that might just be because the negs have been out of their sleeves more at this point.
    Maggie: The scans look pretty good? Maybe a little edgy/sharp? I think the color and compositions are great. This last one tells a story. Cheers, Matt

    Cindy: Nice work. I love the composition and subject in this one. The contrast between the green and the white the open (field) and the closed (church). And, the open door to the church. Lots to look at here. Cheers, Matt

    khc1013: +1. The photos in your last two sets are very stylish (in a good way). You have a unique viewpoint and the tonality of the old Fuji works well with the compositions. Thank you for sharing. Cheers, Matt.

    Tokengirl: Very nice. Beautiful contrast and detail. i have the same scanner. Useful, although, you have to pay for it, is the upgrade to Silverfast Ai Studio. It gets you Multi-Exposure, which seems to work pretty well. Cheers, Matt

    Thanks, Matt!

    The Plustek seems to go from mush to over-sharpened with no stops in-between. I'm going to stick with a Nikon, I think.

    I used silverfast (that came bundled with my Epson) and once I understood the interface, found it very easy to use and get good scans. I had come from a Nikon V using Vuescan Pro. I struggled with the Vuescan on the Epson for some reason, so stuck with Silverscan for the duration. I have now sold the Epson and bought a Nikon 9000 (love it, love it, love it). I am using Vuescan Pro on the Nikon because I already had it and it is not scanner specific and Silverscan is.


    Thanks for commenting Steve and Matt.

    Matt, I don't have M9 and M7 competing for my attention, but I have M8 and M4-P/Mamiya 7 competing and it is sometimes hard for me to deny the immediate gratification and flexibility of the M8. When I do go for a film cam, it is always worthwhile in the end.

    Very interesting set, Anthony. Lovely results with the Summarit. Hope the lux is worth the price of admission by comparison.

    I took my M8 to Omaha this weekend, and the pix look great from it, but I kind of like the way film looks a bit more these days. Especially since I got my hands on a Nikon scanner! I get the look of film, which I grew up with, and the PP of digital, which is powerful and way cheaper than building a wet printing darkroom! (Well, if I ignore the cost of ink for the Canon and all the wasted sheets of paper trying to get the picture right....)

    A big plus one of the photos- they're GORGEOUS! I'd really be missing that lens. But, my '59 Summilux puts out gorgeous frames, so you don't have to mortgage the house to get that Summilux goodness. Here's to finding a good one; you'll make good use of it!

    I developed this roll of Rollei Retro 80S in 1:100 Rodinal (semi-stand) tonight. The negs came out pretty dense, I probably could have shot this roll at 160 instead of 80.

    From late this afternoon, with a storm brewing. It was just kind of crappy out, so I took a drive over to Haulover Marina.





    I learned how to fish on these two boats, The Atlantis and The Mucho K.


    After more fooling around with the new scanner, the scans are getting better.
