    Lloyd, thank you for your kind words, they are appreciated!

    It was a beautiful day for a walk, starting with fog earlier in the day and burning off throughout the day.

    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    I found myself with a roll of Ferrania Solaris 400 .. and really enjoyed it.
    With M3 & 50lux v2

    I figured this audience would enjoy my new t-shirt


    Held up well against such extremely strong backlight / contrast range


    One man band


    Nice


    Decay


    Dinner


    Sorry for the overload, excited about this (new to me) film..
    Looking forward to them re-opening the plant.

    I really felt like it scanned better than most of my Fuji/Kodak films have.. on my V700 at least.

    Dan, I enjoyed the farm, but those beach photos are enchanting and timeless. Great DOF.

    Steve, Interesting photos and film. I really like the colors in the photo of the RR limo. The lady in the second shot is very pretty. Interesting pose... not sure what those eyes are saying.

    Thanks Cindy!
    It's a shame I found this film in between Ferrania going under & being resurrected.. it means the film is about $10/roll!

    And oh what timing.. my M240 came in!
    Spent the evening charging battery and shooting a bit .. after dark, in the rain!

    Leica M2, Leica 50 f/2 Summicron-M Rigid, Kodak Portra 160

    I just got this fabulous lens from johnnygoesdigital the day before my M9 had to take a trip back to the mothership. All is well though, because the combo of my M2 and this rigid Cron is so much fun to use.

    Purim 2011 at the Chabad synagogue in Coconut Grove, FL. Shot with an M6 .85TTL, an M6 .72, and an M 50/1.4 pre-asph lux, and Nikkor 85/2.0. Shot with Scala 200 (love this stuff!!) @ 800 (?) and scanned on a Nikon Coolscan 9000. Fiddled around in SFX2 for PP.

    Cindy,

    I love these...especially the backdrop. The models pose, wardrobe, colors...perfect!
    I'm glad your enjoying that lens, I'd love to see pics with the M9 too.

    This is a young woman who placed her baby for adoption. Photos taken about 6 days after she gave birth and after the legal paperwork was signed. Behind me was the court reporter and to my right was the girl's "friend" and next to him was the adoptive dad. Leica M6, Tmax 400 or TriX shot at 800, 50 lux or Nikkor 85/2.0 No flash - lamp light only. They guy who developed the negatives scanned them on some sort of scanner. Minimal processing in SFX2.

    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    Nothing special but after a month of not seeing anything posted in the Leica M thread I thought I would add a couple for a bump. These were taken at just about high noon during a walk along the trail beside the beach in West Seattle last August. A nice pleasant thought on a January day . . . . .

    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    I wanted to try stand development in Rodinal so I took the Bessa III with some FP4+ and the M7 with TMax400 with me up to the hospital for rounds this morning. The FP4+ shots are in the 'More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M' thread. The TMax did get some fine grain, and since these are portraits I have softened that a bit.









    Roughly 20șC, 1:100 Blazinal, 10 inversions at the start, three at 30 minutes, then water stop at one hour, fix and wash. Scanned with an Imacon 848. I think for an ISO400 film next time I shall try fewer initial inversions, or maybe 1:200 for two hours. All the same, it was very easy and worth exploring.

    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    From a recent brief stint with an M4-P. I think I was hasty in selling it, and may give an M another try, as funds permit. But I think I'd like a meter this time.

    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    So I tried using HC-110 for stand development to see if the grain on a 400ISO film would be less than with Rodinal, and I believe it is. This is Legacy Pro 400 shot at box speed. The recipe was:
    1. Five minute pre-soak in water
    2. HC-110 4ml in 500ml water, ie 1:125. 10 inversions at the start
    3. One gentle inversion at 30 minutes
    4. Water stop at 60 minutes
    5. Fix, hypo clear, wash, dry all as usual

    Another set using a 400ISO film, TMY, and HC-110 stand. I'm happy with the way it works. All with Leica M7, Summilux 50, yellow filter, and Imacon 848 scan.

    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    I'll make the assumption that a Leica CL qualifies as a Leica M ... ;-)

    Rummaging through my Leica CL photos, I found these two made in 2012 which I thought worked together nicely due to their spare minimalism.





    Both made with Leica CL + Color-Skopar 21mm f/4

    Thanks for looking! Comments always appreciated.

    A few photos of William (Billy) Katt who starred in the excellent surfing movie, Big Wednesday. The movie also starred a young Jan Michael Vincent and a young and very baby faced Gary Busey. These are from 6 years ago but just scanned the negatives yesterday. Shot with an M6 and very old 90/2.8 and scanned on a Coolscan 9000. Don't remember the film but I think it was my beloved Neopan 1600.

    The photos were shot in Hollywood, FL during a talk that he gave about one of his projects.

    M6, Nikkor 85/2 LTM, TriX reverse processed by dry in Denver. They do an excellent job of developing film.

    The first one is my son at Fairchild Tropical Gardens. The second one is in a local park before swim practice.

    I like these two a lot. I've always been fascinated by how some large grain b&w films often give the impression of rendering detail that simply cannot be there due to the same, coarse grain. No digital to film filters do that, at least none that I have seen.

    More black and white reversal scanned on the Coolscan 9000 and fiddled around with in SFX2. The shots were taken with an M6 and either a 50/1.4 or Nikkor 85/2 (LTM). Don't remember the film but I think it was HP5 or TriX at 400 or 800.

    The swimmer is my son Ivan. It was taken with a flash. Normally he doesn't mind me taking photos but after I took this photo with the flash, he asked me not to take any more. The other shots are of two of the Gulliver lacrosse team practices that were taken from the pool deck overlooking the football field.

    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    Continuing to annoy people at the weekend, this time with M7, Cron 90, XP2 @ 400, Rodinal stand and Imacon scans:











    There is a little more grain with the XP2 at 400, but seems quite tolerable. At 200 in a Rodinal stand it's as smooth as anything.

    Some shots of a baby born to an HIV positive mom who was adoptive by a terrific family. I didn't include shots of the adoptive mother's face. Shot with Leica M6 and a 50/1.5 lux and / or Nikkor LTM 85/2 and 105/2.5. Film was HP5 and / or TriX.

    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    First roll back from my new (to me) Leica M5. This particular M5 was fully serviced and sold to me by Sherry Krauter. It is a mechanical work of art. As much as I love my M Monochrom, there remains something special about film, in this case Tri-X shot at ISO 400.

    With 5cm f/1.5 Carl Zeiss Jena Sonnar (1937) and orange filter.

    Portra 160, developed by the cheapest lab in town.

    I am still not that happy with the color hues of the scan files and plan to acquire blue and cyan Kodak wratten color compensation filters to neutralize the orange hue of the film base. Would also try to use film profiles from scanner software such as Vuescan or Silverfast to see if it can improve the color tone and cast. Advices and comments are very welcome but I will be away and not be able to experiment on these ideas in the next 4-5 weeks.

    Very nice, Godfrey. Since going digital, I've bounced camera to camera feeling pretty much homeless. So I understand you sentiment.

    A couple of shots from a flag football game in the late Spring. Shot with an M6 and the ancient Nikkor 85/2 or the equally as old Canon 35 for Leica. The film was Scala 200 at 400, I think. Slight crop on the left sides.

    Definitely a different experience and look shooting a rangefinder for sports.

    Nice shots!

    Reminds me of some work I did with my M4-P at my niece's footie match.

    Three from the Homestead, FL farmer's market. Leica M6 and either the Nikkor 85/2 or 105/2.5. Scala rated at 800. Nikon Coolscan. The angle on the singers is not the angle I wanted to shoot from but a family member of the singer decided to take photos at the same time I did. The darker photos were coffee toned in SFX2. My favorite is the last photo.

    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    Yesterday I left the house and drove around for some hours with the M7 and a Nikon F6, each with a 35mm lens and a roll of Ektar 100. I wanted to compare them so I did each shot on both cameras. (The Leica won, but the F6 still has a place for B&W portraits with the 85/1.4 lens.)
    There are some beautiful places in Nova Scotia. All of these are with the M7, 35 Lux FLE, Ektar 100, Unicolor presskit, Hasselblad X1 scans:

    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    Since my white count was 2.2 this morning I celebrated by going for a walk this afternoon along the TransCanada Trail, which runs alongside my property. I took the M7 with Elmarit-M 24mm and another roll of Ektar 100. Firstly I went past my neighbour's house, The Lynwood (which where the 'fathers of Confederation' stayed the night before sailing to Charlottetown to sign the Confederation document that linked Canadian provinces into one country in 1867):



    Then onto the trail, which is the roadbed of a closed railway:



    Some silver birches along the way:



    To Nelson's Park:



    Looking back along Waugh's River (I live on the right bank among the trees):



    I think I'm getting the hang of scanning the Ektar. I had always believed that all adjustments should be made after the scan, and all the possible corrections in scanning software should be set to 'neutral'. But I'm finding it much easier to correct the odd colours of Ektar in the software that drives the X1. These photos have minimal tweaks to WB and Tint and seem better than Wednesday's efforts as far as colour goes.

    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    My fifth roll of film this week! Being off sick can be fun.
    Today I felt the need to enjoy some real blacks! I walked long the disused railway line in the opposite direction to yesterday's walk, and took the M7, Lux35FLE, Acros 100 @80, a yellow filter. Film was developed in Rodinal 1:50 and scanned on the X1. Very contrasty negatives - I will shorten the development time if I use this combination again.
