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

    Love your Type 55 images Stuart. It's funny that Type 55 should come up now. I first tried Type 55 in the mid-90s, but didn't quite get the hang of it. When I saw images on the Flickr Type 55 Group (worth checking out) I thought....I've got to try this again. Next thing I know....it was being discontinued, so I bought 4 boxes from B&H Photo.

    Long story short, it's been sitting unused in my refrigerator ever since. I just packed up two boxes to send to a friend in Tennessee who loves the stuff and actually uses it (but was down to his last box).

    Really sad that so many excellent film based products are going the way of the dinosaurs.

    Stuart,
    I hardly dare to look at your 4x5 stuff, much too tempting :-)

    I rescanned some slides today and this was one of them ( nikon Fe/135mm/ Kodak Panther 100 ).

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

    Finished off a roll of Fuji Acros in the Canon EOS 1V recently. I had been toying with the idea of selling my 24-70L lens, since I mostly use the 24-105L now (on my 5D), but I think the 24-70L will just live on the 1V for awhile longer. This shot was taken earlier in the week, near the outlet of Ship Creek to Cook Inlet. The ice builds up in Ship Creek as the tide goes in and out.

    Nice shot Gary! A little cold there I take it? I hope you are liking Acros....it is my favorite film. It has so many advantages and so few disadvantages....

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

    Thanks Stuart. Cold, but thankfully not TOO cold! Actually quite nice here today...mid 20s F and we got 8-10 inches of fresh snow overnight. Glad we didn't get the 2 feet of snow Washington DC and surrounding areas received!

    I really do like Acros. I haven't shot enough of it to say whether I like it better than Ilford Delta 100, but those are the two B&W films I seem to be using now. I just wish Acros was still available in 4x5 Quickloads. I did learn of a place that can get Acros Quickloads from Japan, but the cost is quite high...about $110 USD for 20 sheets! Ouch.

    One of these days I'll get my Nikon 5000 scanner hooked up and see what these Acros and Delta 100 negs can really deliver. Still using my old Canoscan 2710 for 35mm. Shameful, I know.

    One more from the same roll. A McDonnell & Miller "Blowoff Valve"....whatever that is.

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

    Nice Gary -- blow off valves are designed to relieve pressure, right? That one is pretty big, I wonder what it's for?

    As for Acros vs. Delta 100, I think the best way to see the difference is in the use rather than in sheer resolution or tonality. Acros does generally have finer grain and higher sharpness, but it is quite minor.
    One big difference is in long exposure -- Acros is unique in the film world in having no reciporcity correction up to 2 minutes, and only half a stop up to 17 minutes! So for Acros the recommended compensation for a 20 minute metered exposure would mean about 30 minutes of exposure. For Tri-X, a metered 20 minute exposure requires 2 hours 2 minutes! The biggest advantage is that you don't need to worry about reciprocity in reasonably short exposures...with 17 minutes of exposure you can capture most of the darkest nights assuming you have a fast lens.
    Another big difference is that Acros is very forgiving of variations in processing -- lots of different chemicals work very well, and it is not finicky about time and temperature. Finally, it is ergonomically really nice to work with -- the 120 spools have Fuji's easy-load system where the backing paper locks into the previous spool, it has easy-tear tape on the backing so it rips cleanly and easily when you remove the film for processing, bright easy to read numbering, it resists curling, and scans well. I kind of see it as a super-film...it is like Xtol or Ektar, or even the Nikon F6 -- a preview of the next generation of film based products that appeared right at the end of the film's heyday. It's kind of sad that we will probably not see too many more products like it be developed.

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

    Lovely catch William. When was Panter made? I take it that it is a slide film? At least the colors remind me of what happened with underexposed slides...those rich saturated dark colors.

    Here a few more from when I shot the last of the Type 55. And yes, the expressions are supposed to be blank and severe...





    And here are two color versions...same scan, but just colorized and inverted. I kind of liked the tone...I made it a bit more towards selenium/cyanotypish.



    Less toned...

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

    Panther....isn't that an Apple OS? I think Kodak Panther (a version of Ektachrome?) was about the same time they made Luminere etc. Lovely image William. You really are a master at capturing those fleeting moments.

    I love your Type 55 images Stuart! Is this part of a series for yourself?

    Here's another one of mine from Ship Creek (for Cindy!)...taken in the winter several years ago, but at high tide. If you stood where I took the photo above (with the Canon 1V) and turned 180 degrees, this is what you would see. At high tide, the entire "creek" fills with water and looks completely different. Cook Inlet has some of the highest tides in the world.

    All I can say for certain is that I took this image with my Nikon F2. Can't remember the lens or film and I scanned it a few years ago.

    You've posted some really nice 8x10 images of interesting structures before Jeremy. But this is the nicest "stucture" so far! Great tones. Really lovely model.

    Beautiful image Jeremy!

    There is something magical about those 8x10 images that set them apart from other formats, and this is quite obvious even on the web.
    A contact print must be quite something to see!

    How do you process and scan your negatives?

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

    Nice work Jeremy, it's nice to see someone working with 8x10. I wish it were easier here...no one has the film, cameras, lenses, ability to enlarge or anything. If I wanted to shoot 8x10, I would have to import every single facet of it, and importing an 8x10 enlarger is beyond my abilities! Contact printing is great, but if I were to do that, I would rather go with a larger format like a 11x14 or 16x20 camera....then we are really talking money!
    So for now, 4x5 is where I will stay...

    Ben -- nice shot of the river there...it looks pretty treacherous. As for the type 55, it is not a series...I just took them all one evening to finish what I had left and to get some photos of my friend there who was moving back to his home in Germany.

    Hahaha, thanks, Lloyd

    Francois, this is expired 8x10 Delta 100 developed in Pyrocat HD 1:1:100 for 10'30'' at 72F. It is rotary developed on a Beseler rotating base in a Jobo 3005 Expert Drum. This negative was scanned by placing it emulsion side down on the Epson V700 scanner glass with a sheet of AN glass (AN side down) on top. This works wonderfully for scans up to ~1500 ppi. If I have to scan at a higher resolution or am printing very large and don't want to spend time dustbusting (rarely, I print small) I will wet mount to a sheet of glass suspended by quarters over the glass of an Epson 10000XL at work at 2400ppi. One of these days I'll send one of my shots out to scan on a drum at 4000ppi to see just how much detail is in there.

    Stuart, I'm with you on the 16x20 camera, have always wanted one. I actually shot 11x14 for a while, but the aspect ratio isn't one I could 'see' in very well. I'm a petite individual so the 8x10 is the biggest I'll be going until my fame can afford me a few assistants

    A shot with a Bessa R3M+CV 28mm f/1.9 Ultron on Kodak T400 the last time I used 35mm film about two years ago. Just picked up a nice Contax G2 with 35, 45, and 90 Zeiss lenses so I'll be shooting more film again soon.

    Carl, There is lots of nice detail in your shot. That Ultron is one of my favorite lenses.
    Congratulations on the new G2 kit. I'll be looking forward to more posts here from you with your new tools.

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

    For those interested, Kodak Panther was indeed a E6 / 100 asa film. I used a lot of it back in 96-97. At the time I lived in Stockholm and I had found a shop which only sold 5 packs but at a really nice price. But I think the film was already on its way out at the time because they had this large box under the counter. In the end I bought the whole box and shared with friends. :-))

    Matt, Congratulations on the new (very interesting) camera. I too am looking forward to more ruins with the new cam. Are you hand holding it? This photo is nice and sharp from corner to corner.
    Just for clarification, when you said scanned and stitched, I assume you meant that you had to scan the 6x12 in two pieces. Do you have to cut your negative???? (Gosh, I hope that is not a really stupid question!)

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

    hey thanks,

    No I had it on a tripod at f11 and 5 minutes using hyperfocal focusing after I calibrated it earlier in the day.

    I did not have to cut it at all. I used my nikon 9000 scanned in 6X8 then flipped it over to scan the other side then stitched the two together. I actually used that glass carrier very easy to do btw.

    I love this camera and lens I will be shooting an abandoned motel coming up and all kinds of other stuff with it.

    thanks for the comments, you will love your 9000!!

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

    Okay, here are a few film shots, all drum scanned on a Howtek HR8000. Bombay Beach Chair on K64 last April with a Zeiss 21mm Distagon on a Canon. Willie Dixon's hand on his bass shot for Frets Magazine with Plus-X on an RZ67 back in '86. Derricks in Santa Barbara channel shot for an anti-offshore oil drilling poster I did for the Sierra Club about ten years ago. Velvia, I think. And finally, another Kodachrome 64 from just east of Barstow, shot for a class project somewhere around '85. Most likely with a Nikon 24mm 2.8.

    These are amazing images Peter. That shot of Willie Dixon's hand is iconic. Isn't that shot of the oil derrick on the home page of your website? Great stuff... looking forward to much more.

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

    Thanks Lloyd - I shot a lot of oil derricks, so this may be the same one. I go back and forth on my favorites. Willie Dixon, well, what can you say. I've been really lucky to be able to shoot some of my favorite musicians over the years. I'm going to San Antonio to shoot Flaco Jimenez for Hohner, the king of Tex-Mex button style accordion, in April. And a slightly different version of the Bombay Beach shot ended up on Robert Earl Keen's latest record, The Rose Hotel.

    This is a very unusual scene for Atlanta... bought Marc's Nikon F6 this week and took it out with the Zeiss 35mm Distagon and some XP2 late this afternoon...

    That is a beautiful scene, Don. I don't suppose it will last long in Atlanta.
    Congratulations on the new F6.

    Probably be gone by noon tomorrow, so it's a good excuse to go out and enjoy it! I've been yearning for an F6 for years - finally did another Canon-Nikon swap recently so took the plunge quickly before I find a reason to veer the other way... It's about the size of 3 Leica Ms, but looks to be a lot of fun.

    +1 on the winter creek scene from Atlanta Don! Very nice. Is the Zeiss 35 difficult to manually focus on the Nikon F6? I bought Marc's EOS 1V last year, but haven't tried any manual focus lenses on it yet.

    I set up that F6 of Don's for manual focus with a split microprism screen because my intention was to use the Zeiss lenses also.

    Good to see such a superb piece of gear getting put to use in talented hands.

    I'll have to see about getting a similar focusing screen for the EOS 1V. It's a great camera too....maybe not in the same class as the F6, but not half bad! :-)

    I finally got my new Nikon LS-9000 ED (thanks to Monza...yes, there are still some new ones out there). The big difference between it and the Epson 700V is noted when scanning 35mm. I'm sure I haven't gotten everything out of it yet. I'm using Vuescan.

    Beautiful shot Cindy and hope you enjoy your new scanner. I'm itching to start shooting some film again for awhile.

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

    Thanks, Carl. I'm itching to get out too. I don't have anything new to scan. I'm re-scanning some that I had already done on the Epson and some that I passed over before. The nice thing is that these 6x4.5's are pretty flat. I can see what a PITA it would be to even try to scan them without a glass holder if they were freshly developed. I'll get that glass tray (that many suggested) ordered on Monday.

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

    Finally got a chance to go out for a walk with the "new" Contax G2 and some Kodak BW 400CN film. I used the 45 f/2 for these test shots to make sure everything was working OK. Dug out my old Nikon Coolscan V ED to do these scans. It was a joy using the G2 (despite the dim finder), but I don't particularly like the tedium of scanning negs. I was surprised that the old Nikon scanning software still worked OK under OS 10.6, actually better than the last time I used it with Tiger.
