Olympus XA Fuji-something-or-other film. Four years ago I believe.
A side of The Garden Wall most folks don't see while visiting Glacier National Park. Shot from Peigan Pass.
Very nice photographs, everyone!
Bill, where is that lighthouse located?
Very nice. It reminded me of Bermuda, but I didn't recall a lighthouse like that there...wrong ocean.
A Texas bluebonnet.

Nice William, very nice.
Here's one of my first scans with my recently acquired epson 4490 (photo taken with hasselblad 80mm hp5).
It looks pretty good to me (some detail shown in the second jpg). Have no idea how it would print. The real resolution of the thing seems to be somewhere between 1200-2200 dpi. I'm scanning at the higher value, in full color. Getting 200mb files , but that seems to give the best looking results. One problem is that the dust removal is useless, giving very strong artifacts, so the dust removal must be done by hand.
BTW, many thanks to Lars for suggesting the scanner.

I fell in Love with an Art/Street Photographer Leonard Neumann whose work I ADORE w/ the G1 shot all about the World
Wonderful series of His B&W Work in 'South Africa'
and a photojournalist Cameron Davidson's work / Prefer his 'Haiti' set to 'Haiti 2009' set
( 95% of that work shot w/G1 &G2 & 5% M4 & 35 Cron ).
There is a GREAT site: www.contaxg.com
where you can access FAB photos with the G system / 'Under Categories'
I Look forward to using it MORE & MORE
Its hard to get a bad shot really
the discipline is more in Framing/Composition
less Time in fussing with the lens

Whats interesting to me
is how sooo many of the shots have a RETRO feel wth the G1/G2
particularly in B&W
and yet its a VERY Modern Camera (made in the 1995/1996) & Glass
I finally have a photo scanned from the Rolleiflex. I'm still brand new to the scanner. This one straight out without any fiddling. Epson V700
I'm not loving the square format yet. It seems very hard to frame, but does slow me down...so that is a good thing.
I was very happy that my exposures were all good from the first roll developed (which was not the first roll shot...that one is still waiting to be developed.)
You are a huge inspiration to me.
I'm not giving up on square. I'm just not loving it yet.
I need to get to know this scanner, too. It is quite different from my Nikon V.
You made the scanner switch, William. Any hints? I'm sure I'm not getting all that I could from these big, square negs.
Beautiful image William!
I find that the photograph she is looking at adds some mystery.
The highlights are superb, and would be hard to mimic with digital.
I like square, sometimes ... and he doesn't care very much about equipment ...

Cindy,the reversed viewfinder is very difficult to get used to,you can turn the viewfinder shade into a sports finder which you might find easier.all the best........neil.

Since square is cool, here is my very first image taken with a Hasselbald. 80mm f/11 with 16mm extension, FP4+.
The reversal does not bother me. In fact, the first time I looked into the Rollei viewfinder, it took my breath away! It is amazing....It is just when I get the photos back, I want to crop off the top of the square. I'm just not thinking square yet. I will keep working on it till I get it.
I appreciate the support from everyone here.
Francois, Now there is a subject that deserves square!
cindy...i always fall right into that ground glass image, love it. seems like most of my best work is square format and full frame, not sure why. i certainly appreciate not having to rotate the camera!

Hello, here's an old shot made with a 500CM and 60mm lens on panotomic-x film. I scanned the negative with the Nikon Coolscan 8000.
