    Pete, hope that your safe and secure from the bushfires.

    We were in Yarra Glen last year visiting the De Bortoli vineyard & drove through Healesville. I see it mentioned here in the newspapers as being very close to the major fires.

    i've found the best results if you lower the speed of the tri-x to about 200iso and use this developer. It can be used as a 2 bath, but also works as a single bath developer. it's excellent for high contrast scenes (is usually a N-1 or N-2 developer)

    Taken with a Graflex RB Super D, 190mm lens, f5.6. Tri-X 400 (@320). This camera belonged to my Grandfather, who died in 1965, and hadn't used it for a number of years before that. Originally a 4x5 camera, this one has a 120 roll film adapter:

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

    Love those nei1 -- what are you shooting with? Old polaroid? Or does fuji make film that fits in it? There is something special about the instant film palette.

    Well, it has been great here for the past two weeks -- just under freezing, clear, and snow on the ground with very little wind. Normally at this time of year it is one degree above freezing, sleeting and blowing at 50mph (20+m/s).
    So I went to the beach with my friend Eva from my Icelandic classes and took some pictures. All 203FE and 110/2 on Acros in ID-11 (my xtol is dead and rodinal has not arrived!)

    Stuart,
    Those hassy frames are really nice. Is that with the 110mm?

    I put one of my hassy frames in a small application called "poladroid"...quite fun

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

    Hey William -- yes, those are all the 110mm f/2 -- it is just a perfect lens for the type of portraits I like to make. Those were mostly between f/5.6 and f/2.8. The dark lines are real, they are captured by the scanner, which scans a bit wider than the image area.

    I love the look of the poladroid! I have heard of it, but never played with it. I am just sad that polaroid (and 665 and type 54 in particular) has gone the way of the dinosaurs.

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

    Hi Stuart,

    Yeah, the 110/f2 is really something special. Too bad they don't make one for the 500 series...

    The poladroid is quite fun indeed. I recently saw that some pola fan decided to take over the pola factory in Holland and will try to makeit worthwhile with new techniques. Let's hope it works out as I'm a big fan myself. I will borrow a 4x5 camera soon and plan to buy some Fuji polaroid to try it out. I will of course be putting quite some amount of tri-x and portra through it too!!

    Cheers

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

    Well, I hope that works out. I like polaroid on 4x5, but really only type 54 -- the problem is that if I am going to be using such a huge camera, I at least want a picture larger than 4x5 inches! That's why type 54 with the built in negative was so great -- you got a nice print, as well as a fantastic, super fine grained negative. The only issue was that it was expensive, messy, you needed a sodium sulfite solution on hand to wash the negs, and they were very prone to scratches. Ok, I guess maybe I am starting to remember why polaroid went out of business...but the results were beautiful!

    Good to see more photographs done right - with B&W film!

    William I have 3 copies of the 110/2. Two in F ( long story) and now one in Rollie mount. If you ever pickup a 200 series body or a focal plane body with an adaptor..I am happy to sell you one of my F versions at a good price- because I know you will love using it. It is my favourite lens wide open and renders beautifully as Stuart suggests, stopped down.

    Thanks for that. I will see if I can find a 200 series for a decent price as i really love the look of that 110mm.

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

    I've never shot with the 100mm f/3.5, but maybe that is similar. It is slower, and supposedly the sharpest standard lens on the 500 series. I would guess that given the fact that it is also a planar and pretty close to 110mm, that it will render very similarly to the 110/2 (at least when it is used at f/4 or smaller). Obviously the 110/2 has a look at f/2 that cannot be fully be replaced, but part of the magic of the 110/2 is the angle of view combined with the bokeh it produces. Hopefully the angle of view of the 100mm is close enough, and the planar design is close enough to create a similar look.

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

    Pete,

    I got so exicted about that 110/2 lens that I forgot that I have a brilliant 105/2.4 lens for my Pentax 67 so I think I will stay with that for the moment. Sorry about all that confusion...

    Are you shooting the 110mm on film only or have you also used it on digi? I would be curious to see if you keep this magic on a digi back or if really only sings on a full frame film back.

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

    I use it on both film and digital. I have not shot as many nice photos on digital, but that is a function of me, not the lens. If you will excuse it in this thread, here are a few samples. I think it is still nice on digital. I have been using the hassie more this winter though, as the digital back I use is too slow to use outside with ease in the dark winter here.

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

    Hi William it is a hassle to buy a body to use a lens - I agree! LOL

    ok I have this example with the 110/2 FE shot on my modified to use with CFV11 back 205TCC.

    You can also use these lenses on any body which can take a Hasselblad to whatever adapter ( eg Contax/Mamiya 645)

    I like the way it renders the OOF areas whilst maintaining 'POP' in focus.

    On the weekend I am going to try my newly acquired Rollie mount version - wow it is much larger...

    Cheers
    Pete

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



    This is one from last week I believe. This is the visitor's sign for the Þingvellir national park...it is the meeting point of the North American and European continental plates, and it is was also the scene of one of Europe's first parliament...they started meeting there in 930 ad. Anyway, the current political situation here has led to a lot of vandalism and social statements. I found this one particularly inspired...a drunk, fat and disabled viking. Surely an "oh how we have fallen" lament....that said, they don't lop off nearly as many heads as they used to.

    From around 2000
    I think it was taken with a Contax RX . . . but I'm really not sure.




    It's amazing how people don't change (he was wonderful then, and he's wonderful now, but he does'nt look quite like this)

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

    Nice shot Jono -- funny to see mini-discs -- I loved them around that time, but they have completely gone the way of the dodo...

    Here are a few from this weekend. There was a very subdued light this weekend at Hvalfjordur...calm, around 5C...felt like spring is coming.
    All 110/2 or 50/2.8 FE. Film is E100G and Acros in FX-39 (first time with that developer).











    I had gone out to photograph with my friend Malte. Unfortunately, I was not paying attention when loading the black and white roll. I forgot to advance the film back. So 10 shots turned into 2.5. I am angry, because I think I would have liked some of the shots I took of him.



    Would it have been good?

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

    No Pete, not yet. It is about 10 dollars a roll for 120 here, and it comes back covered in dust and crap. I just bought an E6 kit from them (Fuji...6 step), and I am looking for a Jobo. Some guy just responded to a classified I have here, saying he has a CPA-2...hopefully it is in good shape. I may get that, otherwise I will try to get a new CPP-2 from Germany.

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

    I admire your can do attitude. The JOBO systems are interesting - but I am a long way from Germany..

    incidentally ..the Sinar M lenses in Zeis formulation are apparently different in that they are finished by hand ( I am told) thus delivering a much closer to theoretical spec lens. I am getting pretty cynical about 'claims' from all manufactueres these days...

    looking forward to a release of a 6x6 film back for the Hy6...

    "incidentally ..the Sinar M lenses in Zeis formulation are apparently different in that they are finished by hand ( I am told) thus delivering a much closer to theoretical spec lens. I am getting pretty cynical about 'claims' from all manufactueres these days..."

    You and me both...Sinar told me that the new AFD versions were better than the older (but still less than 3 or 4 years old) AF lenses. I went to calumet and tested my 80mm f/2.8 AF versus their 80mm AFD on their Leaf 33mp back and my film. The shots were 100% identical at every aperture. The only difference I saw was that the new lens has no aperture ring. I am not saying that there ISN'T a difference, just that it is 100% invisible on 645 film and a 33mp sensor, which for me means that there is no practical difference.

    Anyway, yes, I am looking forward to the 6x6 back on the Hy6, but to be honest, unless it is cheap (not likely), I am not primed to buy one. It will probably be 2000 dollars or more, knowing Sinar, which just isn't worth it for me. I'll stick with the 'blad!

    One from last year with a Nikon 35Ti--Provia I think, and the other from maybe two years ago with Nikon F5--forgot lens, but probably 24mm--Velvia 50. Glacier National Park.

    OK, another. Probably shot with a Yashica camera of some sort and Samyang zoom lens ( which are still around here somewhere ).

    This is a picture of my grandmother from 1992 during a reception after my wife and I had backpacked in Glacier National Park for a week for our honeymoon. Alot of my family still live in Montana in a town called Browning on a Blackfeet Indian reservation. My grandmother is still alive at 94 years old and feisty as ever. She has that radical AIM look about her

    Great shot. Does look like something from an AIM rally.

    Browning is a great place, and one of my favorite restaurants is there (although I can't remember the name offhand. South of town, toward the mountains. Pretty rustic, and pot roast to die for!)

    (My father was born and raised on the Uintah & Ouray Reservation. I spent much of my youth there as well.)

    Browning hasn't changed much over the years. We visit every year during the summer and spend at least a week near St Mary on Lower St Mary Lake.

    The gun was actually a toy, but when I saw the slide for the first time I had a chuckle to myself. As you can imagine, my grandma makes a big fuss about the picture, but all the grandkids and great-grandkids love it!

    Where is the Uintah & Ouray reservation?

    Thanx for the coments!
