    Re: Fun with MF images

    I imagine that a hand magnifier lens might work pretty well for this sort of thing.

    FTR, I do have a pinhole for my P65+. Here is an image I made with it on the Salton Sea workshop, (more in the Salton Sea thread):



    While unique and even interesting, it's not the same as a piece of glass chocked full of aberrations

    I suspect Bob is correct, a simple magnifying lens would work, just need to find one with about a 115mm focal and stick it on a Mamiya bellows to focus --- or alternatively, set a smaller one up as pre zone-focused using a cap or cap+tubes.

    That's a lovely shot, William.

    I'm curious, what developer did you use? Xtol perhaps? I've been using mostly Rodinal with Tri-X in 120 and the grain is definitely more noticeable with it. I've been too lazy to mix up a fresh batch of my usual Xtol...

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Jack, that looks quite nice indeed. I thought that the effect would be more pronounceable though. Will have a look at the Salton thread too.

    Double Neg : this was developed by my lab which at the time were using either D76 or ID 11. I'm a huge fan of rodinal both for 135 and 120 format. I have used Xtol too, but I miss the "edge" that rodinal has. Lately I have been using a lab which hand develops my film in Microphen and I do like it a lot.

    Saturday night film tip: Fuji Acros 100 @ 80 iso, Rodinal 1+50, 20°c, 11,5 minutes = Beauty!!

    Ahh, interesting. I've never actually tried either developer that I recall, but I have used Microphen. That's great stuff. I also like the "edge" of Rodinal, and I'm a fan of grain - so no complaints from me. I've found T-Max 100 and Xtol to be quite free of grain, very smooth - but a little "flat."

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Well , if you are looking for grain free, Tmax and Xtol is a good combo.

    But, as you , I'm a complete grain fantatic:-), so rodinal is just wonderful. I use it for Trix, Neopan and acros. I just bought a 5 pack of kodak plus-x to see how it works.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Indeed; it's very low on grain. One of my favorite "detail" combos is PanF+ and Xtol. I took some shots with the Mamiya 7II and N50mm f/4L lens using this combo that blew me away. The details are almost endless. I think you'll like the Plus-X. More old school, a little grainier. One day I want to try Neopan and Acros, especially with a pyro developer.

    Ahh, the joy of film, eh?

    Doing some cataloguing and of course it leads to reprocessing and finding images you hadn't done anything with at the time.
    This was the first time out (except for test shots in the garden) with the H2 setup. Taken during severe storms in October - this one is looking over Coolangatta Beach in the afternoon on the way home from work.

    I love the Pentax 645N. MF is the most enjoyable camera I've used ever, more than Hassel, Bronica, Kowa and even Rollei 6008. Also still love Leica M6 and Nikon F2.

    Thanks for your comments.

    Try to bring more.

    Terrific images Manuel! In your hands, that Pentax 645N and lenses are producing outstanding results.

    I just ordered a 645NII and the 35, 55, 75 and 150 SMC A manual focus lenses....and perhaps someday a 645D.

    It's been a long wait, but I'm glad to see Pentax re-enter the medium format market.

    Very nice images Ray. But imho for these kind of images film still rules, especially using an RZ.

    Ray, does the 350 APO have that much falloff or did you add a vignette?

    Film, not with the RZ any more. Well I use Fuji instant film in the old Polaroid holders of course.
    But 120 film I shoot in my Mamiya 6 cameras, they are outstanding film cameras.

    Well Jack, we can describe it as the 350 has a artistic vignetting in Photoshop Outside Photoshop there is not much falloff... But I do not use the 350 APO much today, the 250 APO with the 1.4 converter gives outstanding result.

    Glad you liked the photos, they are from an photo exhibition of a small natures reserves close to were I live. Very nice place to spend photographic quality time. This is the place where the fairies came out to dance in the misty mornings.

    Thanks for all the nice comments! No, the bulb was powered with the 230V mains power we have this side of the pond, hence the f64 at Iso50 and 1/500th sec. The rim light was done with flash.

    Morning after the rains.
    We had about eight inches of rain here in Sudbury over two days, so many of the local waters are high.
    This couple was not discouraged by a little high water and a flooded road.

    What a weird winter we're having! While you're getting all that rain, Bob, here on the west shore of Georgian Bay we have a virtual drought - less than 1 inch of precipitation since January 1st. No snow has fallen since early February and our March temperatures have been 5C (9F) above normal.

    Global warming?
