    One of the negs I photographed with the A7r2 and FE 90mm macro and then inverted in LR. Original camera was the Contax G2, lens probably the 90mm F2.8 or the 45mm F2.

    Tenerife, somewhere in the North in 2000

    Thank you Jim that is really a nice thing to say
    I really enjoy taking pictures and have done so for a very long time now...I love Cornwall and Devon where there is so much potential for taking images. I consider myself very fortunate to live in this beautiful corner of the world.
    Thanks again Jim.
    Cheers Barry

    Jose, the first one is excellent - the tones, composition, atmosphere, and ever-so-slight hint of color really work well together. Cheers!

    How did you resolve your Newton rings problem and what lighting did you use?

    I have got a LED light table from Dörr (this one : https://www.brack.ch/doerr-leuchtpult-lp-400-led-311753 )
    and also a reproduction set (this one : https://www.brack.ch/doerr-repro-stand-h-75-set-311745 )

    Compared to two different light tables I had long ago (and still have), the light is much more uniform and the device much less cumbersome. I'm using the repro stand without the lamps and put the led light table on the plate of the reprostand. I'm very happy with those recent two purchases : the camera is perfectly level without much trial and error and it is very easy to keep things squared.

    I didn't find any solution for the Newton rings with the acrillic glass, so I stopped using them. I just put the negs on the light table. I don't even use a holder because it would slow things down a little. There is a little plastic ridge near the edge of the light table (the kind under which physicians clip their Xrays plates) and it is easy to slide the negs along it.

    I'm a little deceived about the Newton's rings : the results were slightly sharper with the acryllic glass, but there was another drawback, it was attracting dust like mad. And it was also complicating the changing of negs. Without them the process is much speedier.

    I know that people using pro scanner where applying gel on their negs to avoid that problem. But I'm not ready to do that, it is way too much hassle.

    One of the negs scanned this past week : Santa Cruz de Tenerife, January 2000, Contax G2 "scanned" with the A7r2 and FE 90mm F2.8 macro.

    Annna, you are most welcome...You do live in an outstanding beautiful area
    BTW the gel is a PIA to deal with, avoid if at all possible would be my advice, otherwise you will need to wash all of your neg’s afterwards and use a wetting agent to prevent streaking, then hang them out in a dust free environment to allow them to dry out naturally is the best method IMHO....It’s all to much hassle as you say
    ____________________________________________

    This image I have entitled as Childe’s Tomb, no it’s not the mound right in front of you...It’s just on the other side of Fox Tor (Grimpen) Mire that I have pointed out by a small black circle.
    With the 21mm Loxia it’s just too far away to make it out clearly (a couple of pixels in size) and far to dangerous this time of year to even attempt crossing the mire to get any closer, although that was my original intention.
    The reason for even mentioning it...is just excuse for yet another grisly Dartmoor tale

    The Legend of Childe the Hunter
    +
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Childe's_Tomb

    Childe the Hunter

    According to legend, the cross (much better seen here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Childe...27s_tomb_1.jpg ) was erected over the kistvaen (burial chamber) of Childe the Hunter, who was Ordulf, son of Ordgar, an Anglo Saxon Earl of Devon in the 11th century. The name Childe is probably derived from the Old English word cild which was used as a title of honour.

    Legend has it that Childe was in a party hunting on the moor when they were caught in some changeable weather. Childe became separated from the main party and was lost. In order to save himself from dying of exposure, he killed his horse, disemboweled it and crept inside the warm carcass for shelter. He nevertheless froze to death, but before he died, he wrote a note to the effect that whoever should find him and bury him in their church should inherit his Plymstock estate.

    His body was found by the monks of Tavistock Abbey, who started to carry it back. However, they heard of a plot to ambush them by the people of Plymstock, at a bridge over the River Tavy. They took a detour and built a new bridge over the river, just outside Tavistock. They were successful in burying the body in the grounds of the Abbey and inherited the Plymstock estate.

    Some rocks from Bodmin Moor...The first one is known as the Cheesewring
    Everything here in Cornwall seems to have at least one story attached to it and the Cheesewring is no exception https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheesewring

    The local legend says that the Cheesewring is the result of a contest between a man and a giant. When Christianity had just been introduced to the British Islands, the giants who lived at the top of the mountains were not happy about it. The saints had invaded their land and were declaring their wells as sacred. One of the larger giants, Uther, was given the task of ridding their land of the saints. He confronted the frail Saint Tue, who proposed a rock throwing contest. If Uther won, the saints would leave Cornwall. If Saint Tue won, then the giants would convert to Christianity. Uther took his turn first and easily threw a small rock to the top of nearby Stowe's Hill. Tue prayed for assistance, and picking up a huge slab found it was very light. One after the other, they threw their rocks, stacking them up in perfect piles. When the score was twelve stones each, Uther threw a thirteenth stone, but it rolled down the hill. Tue picked up this fallen stone, and as he lifted it, an angel appeared to carry it to the top of the pile of rocks. Seeing this, Uther conceded, and most of the giants decided to follow Christianity after that.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    Great pictures this evening Barry. I like the last one (boat lane) with its delicate colors a lot. Difficult to post after you ..

    But here another from my window picture. It shows the vineyards hanging in terraces on the slopes above Sion. This little hill is a perfect illustration of the changes going on in the culture of vines : former small lots bordered and sustained by stone walls were ubiquitous and there were many owners of small lots. But they are no more adapted to mecanisation and small domains are no more profitable : so now you can see the big lots owned by much less vine producers replacing the smaller ones, like the one at the top of the hill. Here there is a mix of large lots and small lots. They come with a serious drawback when the slopes are steep and there are strong rains, the erosion can be very important and there are occasional landslides. Those large domains makes the landscape much less photogenic !

    A7r plus 70-200mm @ 197mm.

    That sculpture by Igor Mitoraj is named "Per Adriano" and stands in front of the Teatro Guimerá, Plaza de la Isla de la Madeira, Santa Cruz de Tenerife. There is a similar one standing at the main entrance of the British museum (or it was there when I visited).

    Contax G2 film, "scanned" with the A7r2 and FE 90mm F2.8 macro.

    Hi Annna, I’m pretty sure the one outside the British Museum moved on a while ago now and it’s doing the rounds elsewhere!...In fact Vivek photographed it a little while back earlier within this thread

    Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    I photographed the same one as Vivek when it was (newer) in better shape outside the British Museum back in 2002 (see below) but with 400asa film either with my Leica M4 or M6 together with my Voigtlander 15mm Mk1 or Leica 21mm Elmarit (I confess I cheated and used a film scanner rather than the 90mm Macro )
    That one was known in the UK as the “Light of the moon” or it’s original title I believe is “Luci di Nara”
    Cheers Barry

    Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    I photographed the same one as Vivek when it was (newer) in better shape outside the British Museum back in 2002 (see below) but with 400asa film either with my Leica M4 or M6 together with my Voigtlander 15mm Mk1 or Leica 21mm Elmarit (I confess I cheated and used a film scanner rather than the 90mm Macro )
    That one was known in the UK as the “Light of the moon” or it’s original title I believe is “Luci di Nara”
    Cheers Barry
    Hi Barry, that is funny. I remember it now. Are you sure it was the same as the one near the British Museum ? That sculptor was quite prolific..


    BTW : I got a picture of the one in London too and that was in Aprile 2002. Photographed with a Leica M6 and T400CN film. "Scanned" with the A7r2 and FE90mm F2.8 macro.

    This bring back quite a lot of memories.. Since the mid-nineties and up to the early years of this century, I was an active participant in the Photoforum discussion list maintained by Andrew Davidhazy at the Rochester Institute (may be some other here were following it too ?). In 2001-2002, we initiated a fun little project named "pass the camera" : the first person in the chain bought a Kodak disposable cameras, took a picture and then sent it to the next participant, who took a picture and sent it to the next, untill the roll was full: our camera was named "Vagabond" and toured the world, starting in England and then going to Europe, Asia, Australia and finally in the US. I put up the website showing them at the end and met with the guy who had started our round in England in front of the British Museum.. and we took a picture of that travelling camera (I had to clone that out.. ) but here is it :

    Annna, funny as you say and a bit of a coincidence that we were both there around about the same time
    I have flipped mine the right way round now (had the neg upside down - Ilford Delta 400 in one of my accutance developers to emphasize the grain).
    Obviously mine is the same as yours...Almost certain ours is the same as Vivek's (They are also named the same) after a bit of research...Was aware of other variations by this sculptor but they are all very slightly different from one another either in size and shape.
    The British Museum did move this one around within the grounds quite a bit over the years and it's no longer there now AFAIK.
    I take my hat off to you with scanning/photographing with your A7RII your negatives...I tried and failed dismally.
    I have loads more images of this sculpture taken at the same time but I would be straying OT as mine aren't related to the Sony A7 series cameras as yours are...nice one Annna.

    I'm still experimenting with the use of the A7r2 as a scanner. I hoped that it would be faster than using my old film scanner (a Nikon Coolscan 4000 which is now obsolete and there are no more drivers for it). The use of the A7r2 isn't necessarily a benefit over the Canon 6D : the camera easily outresolves the film and the results seems less sharp than with the Canon. The problem of course is dealing with the orange mask. In LR or ACR, you can't move the color temperature slider as far as needed you are limited at 2000K and this creates problems. I have found a software (PS plugin) named ColorPerfect which has profiles for a lot of film and it does quite well with color. But its controls are quite different of what we are used to in the raw converters. So there is a learning curve. In my test with the trial version the colors came out very good.. So I paid for the license, but now that I have switched to another roll, the colors aren't necessarily better than what I was able to get with LR. Hopefully my skills will improve. But that said, you still need a lot of time, more than I hoped. The idea is to photograph all the negs, make a general correction on the whole roll, pick up the best and scan these on the Nikon Coolscan (or pass on that if the results are enough). I think the results would still be better with the Coolscan in terms of sharpness. What is sure is that the actual results are better than what I can get on the Epson Perfection flatbed scanner.

    Ha.. I was wondering whether I had shot all my negs in the wrong way.. Glad to hear I hadn't.

    Annna, coincidence strikes again!...I dug out and dusted down my old Epson 3200 Photo Flatbed scanner to scan that neg of mine....not a great film scanner for 35mm as you say but that's all I have left nowadays and I won't be buying another one...It was better/OK for my larger 6x6/6x7/6x9cm and 5"x4" negs...Cheers Barry

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    Unfortunately my old Epson flatbed scanner isn’t capable of scanning my old LF 10”x8” transparencies or negatives.
    So I am also trying out a similar approach although a cruder method to Annna using the A7RII and 90mm Macro lens for copying.
    I just tried photographing them in their archival glassine backed sleeves with a certain degree of success (crystal clear at the front and frosted on the rear of the sleeves), which are then stuck to a window pane of glass, this seems to get over the Newton ring problem on one side and it wasn’t really noticeable on the shiny side either, it also diffuses to a degree the rear lighting source but the diffused sleeves tend to make the images look a little grainier than the truth, smaller formats don't look so good using this method.






    I took the original image way back in November 1988 with a hand built Gandolfi Traditional 10x8 wooden field camera using Ektachrome sheet film.
    Gandolfi Cameras http://www.gandolficameras.com/ were one of the earliest camera manufacturers Founded in 1885 about 3 years before Eastman Kodak Co.
    I was taking a few personal images hoping to drum up some new photographic business at the time, this one was taken in the Isle of Dogs (Docklands, London).
    This is the very earliest commencement of construction for 1 Canada Square at Canary Wharf (The tallest building in the UK 1990 -2010)
    You could see back then from ground level an uninterrupted view from South Quay all the way to Billingsgate Fish Market.
    I have never shown this image before and thought some of you might be interested - I also worked back then on the engineering design team for 1 Canada Square.

    Anna:
    I have a Nikon 8000 Coolscan, and it is wonderful for negs from 35mm up to 2 1/4"x3 1/4" using Vuescan. I think Vuescan also supports the Nikon 4000.

    Anna: way off topic here: please go to this page on my web site:
    http://www.modernpictorials.com/alex...ges_circa.html

    My Father's negatives were lost for 72 years, and returned to me by a stranger. 225 rolls, 16 per roll, 645 size. I used my Epson V700 flat bed to contact print all 225 rolls. I put each roll of film in it's own 8.5"x11" clear page, then laid the entire page on the platen and scanned it at rather low res. I then made LaserJet B&W "(not real high res) contact prints, then filed each contact sheet with it's page of negatives. The best ones I used my Nikon Coolscan 8000 and scanned (with glass neg carrier) at 4000 dpi. I made huge prints from the scans.
    Best

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    Barry, the result of your scan is impressive and the picture itself gorgeous.

    Gurtch : the Coolscan 4000 is supported officially by Vuescan and was working untill I made one update too much. Then it became incredibly slow and often crashed the system, or the scanner wasn't detected, etc. Plus even when it was working correctly, it was slow. The story of your fathers negs is incredible and you have got a very nice samples of them on the webpage you linked.

    Another neg "scanned" with the A7r2. The original was shot in January 2000 with a panoramic camera (the Horizon), kindly lent by a friend.
