    @viablex1: nice contrast. like deep shadows in BW pics. It's time square NY right? Looks better in BW to me than in the color pictures I'm used to see of it.

    Well, I'm hard pressed to find anything that compare's with William's lovely lady or NYC Times Square.....but here's what passes for fun during an Anchorage winter. The Fur Rendevous Gran Prix auto races on the streets of Anchorage.

    Nikon F2, 50mm f1.4 and Ilford FP4.

    Stuart, thanks. It looks like a grate camera, IŽl have to do some research, fixed lens?

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    Yes, a fixed 38mm, but it takes the same backs as the Hasselblad V system, so in that sense it is not really fixed lens. Another similar option would be the Mamiya 7II with the 43mm f/4.5 lens. It is also a symmetrical biogon-like lens -- it is a clone of the large format version of the biogon. It is just as astonishing as the 38mm, only it is on 6x7 and mounts on the Mamiya 7 -- that's a nice thing because it means you get a rangefinder, meter, AE, a back that does either 120, 220, or 35mm panorama, has a nice ergonomic grip, a hot shoe, and of course you can easily pop on a 50mm, 65mm, 80mm, 150mm or 210mm lens if you happen to have one with you. The SWC is smaller, lighter, and can use a digital back (though this is not always recommended).

    These are great shots, and not the typical stuff one sees (or used to see, when there were more of them around) out of the Xpan. Very nicely done, and reveals not only your eye for subject and composition, but also the excellent range of this wonderful photographic tool.

    Lots of cool stuff above!

    Nikon Fe/50mm / Kodachrome 200 ( I can't believe this film will cease to exist...very sad as I find it to be the most beautiful color film) If anyone has some unused stock of K64/K200 don't hesitate to send me a PM.

    I've been put in charge of scanning old family photos, and I agree the color is something else.

    Thanks Cindy and Lloyd for the comments!

    I agree about Kodachrome. It really is something special. Where are you having it processed? I thought the only lab left in the world was in Kansas.

    Mikel, Excellent use of the SWC.

    Lloyd,
    Thanks!
    I send my film to Switzerland who then send it to Dwayne's in Kansas. I don't have anymore film for the moment and it is very difficult to find as production already stopped. If I'm lucky, I will maybe be able to get hold of 10 rolls of K200 for one last project.

    Just for the pleasure here is another one with Nikon Fe/ 135mm and Kodachrome 200:

    Nice shots William -- I will take a look in my stores...I may have a roll or two of K64...maybe.

    Here are some shots I did for the stockfish series I am doing. I shot them in the fall or summer, but they were 4x5 and I was not actively processing it for a bit.

    There is fantastic detail in these 4x5's. I am enjoying the fish series.

    +1!! I just wish I could see some big prints from these negatives.....I'm guessing they are pretty impressive.

    Well done Stuart....great subject matter and series.

    More details on the camera/lens/film etc?

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    I bought a Minox 35 EL sub-miniature at a swap meet. It is vintage 1977. I had to send to Denmark for batteries. My plan is to keep it loaded with black and white film as a carry-around in my purse. I took it out in the neighborhood and here are a couple from my morning walk. They are not special, but were an exercise in scale focusing. The statue photo is wide open. The focus has to be spot-on at f/2.8. The little thing makes you think on every shot. The speeds are limited to 30-500, so I will have to find a ND filter to fit it.

    Cindy, I have an old little Vito II and I have the same concerns about slow maximum speed, so I use only slow film on it: consider that with this kind of cameras (leaf shutter, no mirror) you can shoot handheld at very slow speed

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    spiderfrank, The VitoII shot is very nice. There is something to be said for a camera this small....besides just the fun factor.


    I loaded the Minox EL with some black and white TMax 100 this morning. I'm looking forward to using it. I'm still going to pursue finding that ND filter, though- to give me more range. Yesterday, I used f stops from 2.8 to 8 and was surprised to find the whole roll in focus. I guess my guesstimating is pretty good.

    guesstimating the distances is not so difficult, more or less a step is 80 cm, a medium size car 4 meters (ok, in Europe... ;-) ), a road is 8 m large ... I help myself comparing things

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    Cool shots guys! I like the minox photos. I am sorry I did not answer you all before, I did not see the thread was updated. Thanks for the comments on the 4x5, I have been shooting it a bit more lately, and it is always a great experience. The camera is an Ebony SV45Ti, which is a beautiful wooden folding field camera. I have two lenses, a 210 Apo Symmar and the 110 Super Symmar XL. Between the two, I have not really found many photos I could not take...at least not that I would really want or need to take on 4x5...
    The film was Delta 100. I have a few more that I will be posting later. I had some sheets of Polaroid Type 55 still left (expired in 07), so I wanted to shoot them. If you don't know about Polaroid Type 55, it is an instant postitive/negative film. You get a nice 4x5 inch polaroid print, but you also get an incredible fine grained black and white negative. I believe it used to be Panatomic X, so a very slow, fine grained and fairly contrasty neg. I have a friend who is leaving to go back to his home in Germany, so I took some portraits of him and another friend. He in turn took these two photos of me:

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    Stuart, I've heard of the Polaroid Type 55 before, but thanks for telling us about it again. I guess it is no longer available, is it? I appreciate seeing this sample (and fine images of you). The tone gradations are really smooth. Must you tease us with these 4x5 images? My gear bag is already full and my wallet is already empty....oh, but a "a beautiful wooden folding field camera" sounds so lovely.

Thanks for the comments on the 4x5, I have been shooting it a bit more lately, and it is always a great experience. The camera is an Ebony SV45Ti, which is a beautiful wooden folding field camera. I have two lenses, a 210 Apo Symmar and the 110 Super Symmar XL. Between the two, I have not really found many photos I could not take...at least not that I would really want or need to take on 4x5...
    The film was Delta 100. I have a few more that I will be posting later. I had some sheets of Polaroid Type 55 still left (expired in 07), so I wanted to shoot them. If you don't know about Polaroid Type 55, it is an instant postitive/negative film. You get a nice 4x5 inch polaroid print, but you also get an incredible fine grained black and white negative. I believe it used to be Panatomic X, so a very slow, fine grained and fairly contrasty neg. I have a friend who is leaving to go back to his home in Germany, so I took some portraits of him and another friend. He in turn took these two photos of me:
    That Type 55 is (was?) the bomb! (Btw, nice to put a face with the name, Stuart.)

    Thanks Lloyd, I totally agree about Type 55.

    Cindy -- Thanks for the compliments. You are right about Type 55...it is gone. You can still buy it in some places from old stock, but they stopped making it in 2008 I think. It was expensive even in the best of times (I think the last pack I bought was 80 dollars for 20 sheets), but now people are asking over 10 dollars a sheet for long expired film.

    Here are a few of the shots I took of my friend:

    Nice shots, Stuart, and I think this last one really illustrates the quality of the image possible with Type 55. Wonderful tonality, and such clarity, as see in your friend's eye in this shot.

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    Thanks Lloyd, that one is my favorite as well. It was a bit hard to get focus right, as my strobes necessitated shooting at f/8, which with a 210mm is not that much depth of field! Especially when the person needs to stay still while you close the lens, stop it down, insert the polaroid holder, pull out the insert, and then fire the shutter. The whole process takes about 10-15 seconds if you are quick, and depth of field is only a few millimeters. But in this shot it worked well. That is the thing about large format -- it can be such a pain to get right, but when you do, nothing can touch it.
