    Put a few pennies aside here and there, bet you have enough saved up by Christmas.

    'Tis true. I actually have a 45° finder for Hassy tucked away, on the principle that I'll buy one bit at a time, and eventually have a camera (kind of like Klinger from M.A.S.H., and the Jeep he was sending back to America).

    I got my 747 that way.

    A few at the local park with the Fuji GW690III + Delta 400 (my favorite B&W film for MF). Lab dev/scan. I had them scan at "high res", which resulted in 90MB files. Should be plenty high resolution for big prints .

    Scott, #1 is my favorite.

    Mike, I really like what you are getting from Delta 400. There are lots of nice tones. I really like the dam shot.

    All: Some real cool photos posted since i was last here! Thanks everybody for sharing.

    I only have a few recents scans of some negatives from 1971 to share. Taken in an, unfortunately long gone, shop below the Pike Place Market. All (i think?) with a Nikkormat FTN, 50mm f/2, and Tri-X Pan. Developed by me somewhere using something (it was a long time ago!).











    Cheers, Matt

    Matt, It must be fun to go back through all of these fantastic photos that you have from long ago. There are so many good shots! I really enjoy looking at them.

    These are terrific. Glad you're sharing this old stuff.

    All the advances in camera technology these days are great, but great 40-year old photos are still great photos no matter what.

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

    I tried my first roll of Provia last Sunday, I like it very much. It has more contrast and saturation than Astia, but it doesn't make your eyes bleed like Velvia.

    On my way to the Secret Place:


    The Secret Place. Getting here requires a half mile walk in mostly knee-deep water and muck, but I love being here just as the sun is coming up to listen to the Everglades come to life. The first time is kind of spooky, but after that it's highly addictive.

    Thanks, Cindy. I had a pretty good shooting day. It was pretty overcast, which for me leads to good tones. I also shot without a filter (I often shoot with a medium 1-stop yellow filter), which I think held the contrast down.

    Delta 400 has been my most reliable film for medium format. I still get mine lab processed/scanned and the Delta 400 emulsion seems to get along well with the chems and scanner they use. I've tried other, slower, "artsier" emulsions (Efke & Rollei, for example) but they have always come out way too contrasty for my taste.

    Delta 100 pushed one stop has worked pretty well too but I think Delta 100 is a pretty contrasty emulsion.

    Thanks. One of my faves, too. I'll probably get this printed large, and see how it looks.

    Matt -- great shooting environment there, and great results, too. I find it hard to believe it's 35mm Tri-X -- it looks so grain-free, especially this first shot.

    Hello all, I've been following this thread for awhile, lots of wonderful pictures from everyone.
    Hope you don't mind if I post a few pictures with my newly acquired Rolleiflex 2.8E. This is my first TLR and she's a beauty! HP5 Plus DDX 1+4.

    Thanks for looking,
    Joe

    Joe, nice first shots from your ´flex! The icicles, my favorite.

    Those pictures from the Everglades are gorgeous, as were the b&ws. The first is very appealing - the simplicity, I guess!

    You are a braver woman than I am to go slogging through the everglades. Be safe...worst comes to worst, hit the gator over the head with the Hassy.
    The photos from the everglades are so beautiful. You really have a good eye and your post processing is excellent.

    Claire: Thanks! These are great. The film seems perfect for the moody, dark, everglades.

    Mike: Thanks! I checked, again. It was "Kodak Tri-X Pan". Which, I think was ISO 320 in the early 1970's? I could be over-processing it with Nik Define 2.0; but, I usually back way off from the default.

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

    This is another one from the early 1970's. Nikkormat and Kodak Plus-X Pan. I've spent a lot of time processing (over-processing?) it different ways. These are the four(?) that i ended up with. The main differences are the way the blown highlights at the top and bottom are treated and in the structure/grain.

    I'd appreciate some criticism. Cheer, Matt

    You can say that again... Just discovered this thread and have really enjoyed the images posted. Haven't shot film in what seems like forever but may have to rethink that. There really is something special about a lot of these shots.

    I found this thread a few months ago and the people and images got me back into B&W film and bathroom developing.

    Thanks. The composition is a bit off, which is driving me slightly crazy, because otherwise I'd probably be quite proud of this one.

    As far as this thread - there is some really good stuff here. While I feel the forums have become too technically oriented for my liking over time (other than the digi medium format discussions which often have great entertainment value!), this and the leica M remain one of the few picture threads i still check regularly.
