    Another example from my recently acquired Fujifilm GF670w.

    Kodak Potra 400.

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

    First roll with the Robot II ... A short roll, it was XP2 Super 24 exposures, so there are only 39 exposures here, not 50. ;-)

    This roll was mostly to test the camera and see how well it was working. It was a little sluggish in the first five-six frames, then started to feed smoothly. I wasn't being terribly careful about exposure either, as I'm sure the shutter needs a thorough service.


    Robot II - Scanned with Nikon Coolscan V

    It was fun figuring out how to make the Coolscan's negative feeder fit the 24x24 square format to speed up the process. I can now reliably scan 7 exposure strips with a Preview and Scan pass using Vuescan in about five minutes.

    The guys in Germany quoted €75 to overhaul the shutter and upgrade the body to take a modern 135 feed cartridge without having to unload the film and load the Robot feed cartridge. (Postage almost costs as much as the service ... !)

    Well, I'm jazzed. I'll pick a couple of these exposures to render and post a little later.

    Enjoy!

    Here's a link to the Robot set for which I've applied a first processing pass.

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

    I haven't shot a roll of film in 10+ years, but this thread inspired me to do so. Dusted off my only remaining film camera and bought a roll of XP2.

    I really enjoyed it and like the look of the results. I'm especially pleased with the rich whites, something I've never been able to achieve with digital. So much so that I'm seriously considering a commitment to film. And learning to scan well.

    Certainly not noteworthy photos, but just wanted to share the experiment and say thanks for the inspiration.

    John

    Viablex: that is an excellent scan. Can I ask what you used to scan the image?

    Dan: also a great capture!

    South Harting from South Harting Down - this is a rescan of a two year old image, using the new techniques I have learned from the "Vuescan Bible". (Thanks Cindy Flood for pointing it out to me in the first place).

    This is a 2:1 crop from a 6x6 frame, shot on Kodak Portra 160, Hasselblad 500CM and my ancient Sonar 150/4.

    Thanks Big Louis, its my coolscan 9000 sometimes it suprises me and that portra 400 does scan pretty well.

    the there are scans where I can see all the detail and it doesn't do that well

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

    Some lovely new work! Bravo!

    I've acquired the ANR glass film holder for the Coolscan 9000 now. Wow, this really opens up what I can do with it! I'm scanning two whole rolls of Minox ultraminiature film with it now—easiest way to get quality scans of this teensy format I've ever tried. Very pleased indeed.

    It's been awhile since I've posted any images here....

    These were shot on a bright/cloudy Alaskan winter day with my Hasselblad 503CXi, 100mm f3.5 CFi lens and Ilford Delta 100. Local lab dev and scan.

    I really have a thing for planes, trains and automobiles (and old trucks too).

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

    Thanks Cindy! I didn't expect much, because of the bright white sky, but the more I look at these, the more I like them....quite a different look/feel than if it had been a blue sky sort of day. The first image above has sort of a "high key" look to me...which was quite unintentional. I suppose the light bouncing off the white snow on the ground also contributed to the look of these images.

    That CFi 100mm f3.5 lens is certainly one of my favorites.

    Steve, love the IIIf with the summitar. That's a great combo...nice images!. I had a girlfriend who lived in the building behind the 72nd st. station.

    Here's a Mamiya RZ and 110/ f2.8 after a recent snow squall...

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

    A straight copy and paste from the Digital M forum! I do post a lot of film there... haha



    Hello guys

    Making my monthly visit here... I'll share with you a photography-related story:



    I began talking to Miho again (shown above). We were never really that close, she was just that hard working girl in my class... we hung out a little during our first year, but that was about it. She has a passion for silk ropes, you know... the circus (like not clown circus, acrobat circus!) performers that tangle themselves in silk to climb high above the audience. In first year, she would travel back to Toronto every weekend (almost three hour round trip) just to attend practice. But second year got a little too intense and she gave it up so she could keep up with architecture school. She always looked tired, a little depressed, and really stressed out.

    Near the end of the second year and the beginning of our first co-op/internship term, I asked her where she would be working next term, and she told me quietly that she'd be taking the term off, training, getting fit, and apply to circus school. She wasn't planning on coming back.

    I messaged her a week ago to see how she was doing... and she seemed to be doing much better: she moved to Montreal, found a job at a ceramics studio, and practices at the local circus school every night :P

    She told me never to give up photography, and to take my dreams seriously. Said I had a lot of potential, I just had to chase it, and make something out of it.

    If you want to read her story, a Journalism student wrote an article on Miho. Read it here!

    It got me thinking that I've neglected photography for a really long time... I used to post here everyday, I used to take a photograph every day... but now it's maybe.. once every two weeks I produce one photograph? Kinda sucks, really. I've neglected my flickr, tumblr, facebook... I've been so overwhelmed by my work life. I think what I really want is just maybe... a week or two to fully dedicate to photography, catch up on my flickr/tumblr/getdpi, start a new blog/database (500px, maybe?) and really push my work out there. Enter a few contests, submit a few articles to blogs.

    I began shooting a lot of film this term, and I didn't quite know why. I use my lunch break to wander around a 6 block radius from my office with a film camera, taking photos of the people I converse with. Many days, I'd come back without a single shot, some days I'd come back with one... others I'd come back with 3-4. I've also turned my bathroom into a darkroom and began developing film at home. I also picked up a 4x5 large format camera (a Crown Graphic, for those interested) and some sheet film. Shooting large format and developing my own film sort of helped me realized why film was my medium of choice.

    It sounds ridiculous, but I shoot film because it forces me to return to photography. With film, there's no distraction of a screen or a meter (at least on my cameras... I took the battery out of my M5), there's just you, the machine (not a camera, a machine), and a medium. You see something, you operate the machine as if it were a part of you, and you capture on the medium, that's that. Nothing to tell you your exposure is wrong and you need to adjust before shooting, nothing to look at after you've shot, the process is clean, simple, and pure. During the hour I spend each day walking around the city, the camera becomes an extension of me, and I'm immersed in the process of photography, regardless of whether or not I take a photograph.

    In the darkroom, you dedicate about a half hour of your time to the photograph... there are no distractions, just you and the photograph. The photograph relies on your movement, attention, and care in order to exist. You produce a tangible image at the end of the process... you've, in someways, created something.

    It's these two things, film and the darkroom, that still keep me connected to photography. It sounds like a whole lot of bull, but that's what keeps me going :P (I AM in architecture school after all... it's 4 years of bull...).

    Here's what I've produced with my silly film stuff:

    Trygve,

    I've been following the samples posted over at the RFF of scans from the new Plustek 120. So far they have been distinctly unimpressive. This is very good indeed. Great composition and processing.

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

    Ran across one from a few years back. My second son, now 31 years old.

    He was flipping off the world as he arrived, and has pretty much stayed consistent in that attitude ever since.

    Nikon F3, don't recall the lens, but most likely a 50. Tri-X.
