Pretty shot Ken!
Nice shots all... I told myself the film bug would pass with the M9 but I think I will track down a M7 in great condition instead of a backup M8 to hold me over until the M10.
the flowers are great! are there any tricks to getting that look?
Cindy, two excellent shots with the iiig. Very nice! I'm curious to try one of these iii series cameras someday.
I haven't posted on this thread for awhile, but here's a few from my outing out with Steve (shtarka1) last week.
M6 TTL with either 35Lux ASPH or 50Lux ASPH. Legacy Pro 100 in either DDX1+4 or Rodinal 1+50. Scanned with Plustek 7600i.
Thanks for looking,
and some fun shots of the other shooters
Nice work, Joe. Say, Steve looks good even on film.
Oh, man, Joe. Tell me it is that Legacy film that gives the great look to these images (and not those two killer ASPH lenses). I had a hard time picking a favorite, but I'd have to say it would be the image with the bench and the man in the suit.
My iiig is a real pleasure to shoot with. I hope you give one a try.
Thanks Lloyd & Cindy
Lloyd, you always have a good punch line!
Cindy, its probably a combination of the LPro100, lenses, some pp with SEP2 and some USM sharpening for the web
I'll definitely be on a lookout for a iiig, I'm only slightly worried that I may not be able to load film properly.
Loading the iiig is not hard at all. I made a template out of cardboard and covered it with clear packing tape. I cut the leaders on a couple rolls ahead of time, and put them in my bag. I have had no problems loading once the leader is trimmed. Leica made a metal template at one time, but those have become pricey...and my home-made template works fine. You really don't need the template if you have a steady hand and count the sprocket holes....but it makes cutting them easy.
Cindy, Pretty Color & Comps!
Lovely photos, Dan. B&W still looks better on film.

Dan, Congrats On The M7 & Wonderful Images!
Cindy, nice vibrant colors to those Ektar shots, and thanks for the tips.
Dan, congrats on M7. Very nice tones to the B&W shots.

Joe, Like The Crop,Detail,Lines & Signature Of Your "Legacy"!
Thanks Steve & Cindy. Freestyle has the last batch of Legacy Pro 100s & 400s on sale now if any of you are interested.
Thank you Jorgen, Cindy, Steve & Joe for your kind words!
. . . . . I have not had a film camera since the mid to late 90's, and it was a autofocus SLR. Having fun with the M7 but they did have a M6 TTL with the .58 view finder which was mighty pretty and had my heart. I love the .58 viewfinder with the 35 . . . . but my head said the M7 for the Auto shutter speed . . . . . decisions, decisions, . . . . . . . . . .
Cindy these two photos are Awesome!
Joe, I love these 3 shots! The woman looks like she could be heading to Tiffany's but a new nick name may have been born. With your self portrait in the shot we may have to start calling you Diamond Head! The 2nd is just a classic with the man (businessman/lawyer?) walking by the bench with the summer tourists all about . . . . . . and the 3rd shot of Steve is mighty fine, captured as he appears to be starring in the direction of Ms. Tiffany . . . .
Steve, I love the shot of the professor, a great capture for the Harvard Square series! Nicely done.
. . . . . and the second shot of the young woman speaking to the man on the bench, they just do not look like they have much in common. Perhaps you had the same thing in mind when you named the photo, 'DontWantToKnow-'! Great capture, certainly gets the imagination wound up . . . . .
Dan, I like "Janet & Friends" because it is a slice of American life...a scene that is repeating all over the country this time of year as families and friends gather for picnics and reunions. The ferry photo is timeless.
It is hard to decide on which M to choose. I like M6 classic, but M7 is probably a wise choice with M9 because the controls function in a similar way. I imagine a .58 with 35mm lux would be awesome.
Cindy, thanks for your kind comments, they are appreciated.
Yes it was a slice of Americana as we know it today, picnic tables, a grill, friends and some new faces to me, but not to Dean, as we gathered to enjoy a day together and provide him with a send him off as he relocates to LA for work after another downsizing.
. . . . . a few photograph taken this weekend . . . . .
