    One frame from my first roll with the Nikon F5. It's a solid camera that I really enjoy using.

    However, I know some of my friends who only shoot digital are already thinking "Yeah, yeah...whatever."

    My father had to spend a couple of weeks in hospital in October, but I haven't had time to do anything with the film until now. I'm still using the strange Kodak ColorPlus 200, the film with the "Instagram Look". It's so darn cheap at $2, and the greenish cast fits well into the hospital environment

    A couple more shots from my first roll (Fuji Provia 100) with the Nikon F5.
    I've really been happy with this latest version of the 24-120 f4 VR lens, whether on film or digital.

    These are from probably 13 years ago at the Calgary Stampede. I had my Leica 400mm f2.8 with me and they let me shoot a bit of it from a photographer area. This is probably Agfa RSX 100. At the time I could buy 100 foot rolls of it from a local camera store for about $80.

    This is another fairly old shot, done with the 105-280mm and probably Kodak E100VS. The fox pup was coming out of a den it had in the dune at a local beach. I used a blind for this, with a metz flash as fill.

    Shot with my one and only rangefinder....the Mamiya 7II. 65mm lens, Ilford Delta 100, processed with Nik Silver Efex Pro 2.

    Photo taken a couple months ago....I finally got around to having the film developed last week. This locomotive has since been hauled off to the scrap yard.

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

    OK, well here is pretty much my first shot out of my recently acquired Fujifilm GF670w camera taken from a 10th floor balcony overlooking the Thames. Were it not for the portable nature of this camera and the inbuilt metering I wouldn't have had this opportunity - it was by pure chance I had the camera with me.

    Handheld for 1/125 on Kodak Potra 400 - used AE mode and metered off the sky.

    The Jersey Shore, the Boardwalk on a chilly, windy day.
    Photo by Joe Schilling, who worked for Time-Life as a picture editor for decades, but almost unknown as a photographer.
    Joe was a great street shooter in the style of HCB.
    I had the honor of knowing him and scanning his gorgeous Tri-X negatives before he passed away a couple of years ago.
    Joe never owned any fancy equipment and stuck to the basic 3-lens kit.
    Shot with Tri-X and D-76 and his old Nikon F with a 50mm lens.

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

    Hey Havent posted here in a while... haven't even checked GetDPI in a while! Hope you don't mind me posting again

    A few snaps with the Zorki 1 and Canon 35mm f2/35mm f3.5 Summaron. I bought the Zorki to be used as a scalefocus wide angle shooter!







    My last few from the school term... and my Bronica RF645. It's spending some time with Hillary in Vancouver this term

    Toronto Image Works cut this frame in half... and put a staple in it. I kind of like it!









    And maybe my favourite photo of this roll... a photo of my classmate/friend Miho. She's probably one of the coolest people I've ever met. In our first school term of our first year Miho would drive an hour back to Toronto from Cambridge every weekend, regardless of our work load (and we had a HEAVY work load) so she could endulge in her true passion: climbing silk ropes. She was part of a group of... I suppose, circus performers. She'd practice on the ropes for an hour every weekend in Toronto, climbing an suspending herself meters, storeys, in the air. Though school caught up to her in the coming terms and she had to give up the silk ropes in light of architecture an design studio. Last time we talked, she told me she wasn't coming back next term. She's going to train for a term, and apply to a few circus schools in the following term. It's nice to see her pursuing her passion

    I think this photo captures her well. I couldn't expose it, but on those panels she's examining are some of the most beautiful sketches an water colour paintings I've ever seen. Instead of computer rendering her project, she did everything by hand with water colour and ink. The low contrast, soft greys, and overall lightness of the photo fit perfectly with who she is... a light, graceful artist.

    This is almost a 100% crop out of a 6x6 frame from my recently acquired Fujifilm GF670w. Hand held and using the internal meter. Kodak Portra 400.
    Scanned in Vuescan and processed in LR3, then exported/resized to jpeg.

    I'm beginning to understand why. 6x6 and 6x7 versatility, top optics, inbuilt metering, lightweight and portable, which means you can take photographs without a tripod. About the price of s/h Hass 203 but a lot easier to tote around all day. And it does take nice photographs!

    The starkness of your snow scene reminds me of winters in New York after a snowfall when I was a child. Just don't get that kind of scene here near San Francisco.

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

    Back to using my 500CM for an outting to England's South Downs area over the weekend. This is a wonderful piece of national heritage, an 11th Century Saxon church built by Earl Godwin, father of King Harold (of 1066 an all that fame). It stands in a field prone to flooding with a tributary of the Lavant river which rises in winter in heavy rain and snow melt. The church contains a wonderful 11th century wall painting - the detail of which you can see in my posts in the 'Fun with DP2M pictures' in the 'Other Digital' section. Incidentally, the church is outside an abandoned village, probably cleared by the Black Death in the 14th century!

    Kodak Portra 400, Zeiss Planar 80/2.8 f16.

    Thank you, Lloyd. I'm actually going to India again in a couple weeks. Looking at these makes me wish I had a film camera to take along.

    Sometimes I think I should get a film M and a 50 or 35 and be done with all this -- for the rest of my life.

    Very nice work with the FM in '77.

    It's not so bad a thought. There are many times when I feel like chucking it all down to the basics like that. But then ... there are a lot of nice film cameras out there too. All different formats, types, etc. I've gotten into the 6x6 and Polaroid SX-70, done some more 35mm. Today I have my Minox EC loaded and in my pocket.

    Onwards, always onwards!

    For me it could just be nostalgia. Sometimes we love the IDEA of something more than the realities of it. But the one thing I have little of is time. And I've no particular fondness for scanning.

    Still, the older I get the less I shoot, but the greater I value what I do shoot. And I'm pretty sure I'm no better a photographer than I was decades ago, despite the wonders of digital capture and processing.

    For some reason this thread has made me reflective. Must be all that grain.

    For some reason this thread has made me reflective. Must be all that grain.
    Not quite as tasty as scotch, but if it does the job ... ;-)

    I understand the nostalgia. I get nostalgia for things I never even experienced, like the Robot Star cameras or the Alpa 10d. They were just things I loved to look at when I was young and couldn't afford anything. Most are pretty crappy in reality compared to what we've got today.

    I pulled out my favorite little Minox EC yesterday and loaded it with film*for the first time in a decade. I also reached into my bag and grabbed the Ricoh GXR-M, fit the Color Skopar 28/3.5 lens and an optical viewfinder on it. Haven't used that in a while either. With each of these little actions, the adventure begins anew.

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

    Something new to play with in the film universe arrived in the mail today:

    1938-1940-ish Robot Star II




    It's in better shape than expected. I'm sure the shutter needs a cleaning, but it winds, everything seems to work. The pre-war, uncoated Zeiss Biotar seems in very good condition ... no fungus, no oil contamination.

    24x24mm format. Both feed and take-up cassettes are in it, but I believe this model can actually feed from a standard 35mm cassette. I don't believe there's a way to rewind, however.

    A very cool little camera: solid as a rock and hefty. I've been curious about these little buggers for a few decades. Guess I need to load a roll of film and see what I get before I send it off for a shutter service. :-)

    Godfrey, I guess you can see now where Fuji got the inspiration for their recent X series cameras!

    Post some results soon.

    Um, I don't get the connection. Sorry.

    I took an old roll of film and practiced loading the feed cassette this evening. Connected it to the take up cassette and fitted it in the camera. One spring wind up nets about 10 frames in rapid sequence ... The film transport works perfectly, no torn sprockets or other issues. A roll of 135-36 nets fifty exposures.

    Tomorrow, I'll load a roll of XP2 Super for real.

    Ben - Great detail and tonality. That's an interesting workflow I've not thought of.. Shoot film, scan it, and then run it through Nik Silver Efex Pro 2? How much processing do you do in there?

    Photo taken a couple months ago....I finally got around to having the film developed last week. This locomotive has since been hauled off to the scrap yard.

    Emmawest - Lovely portrait, thanks for sharing!

    Follow up and update: another Robot enthusiast from Germany has assisted me with some details:

    It's a Robot II (no Star, those were post war models) and the serial number says it was manufactured in 1941 and owned by the military at the beginning.

    I loaded up a test roll to practice and test the film transport, seems to be working perfectly. So this morning I loaded a short roll of Ilford XP2 Super and took it on my walk. What a cool camera to shoot with! It is heavy as a modern mid-range DSLR and operates very smoothly indeed. I don't think I get anything slower than 1/20 second from it, but the same gent sent me the name of a small shop in Germany who will totally rebuild and restore the shutter to original specification. They're also able to modify the film chamber to match the post-war IIa (1952) and allow it to use a standard 35mm film cartridge as the feed.

    I'm jazzed, of course. This is fun. ;-)

    Pix soon...
