    I do miss that camera though. It's very much smaller than its bigger brothers and there's something about that square format, particularly for half body portraits.
    Totally understand!

    I have 100 rolls of expired Ektachrome and waiting anxiously for the new Ektachrome, both in 35 and hopefully, one day, 120...

    I will get around to cutting the 120 down to 127 (46mm), roll my own and feeding it to the BR. A friend in the rangefinder forum is already doing that with Provia.

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

    Jurgen,

    I have almost 100 rolls of fresh 127 film either ready to shoot or waiting to be delivered from Ilford in four weeks (bulk film that will be re-spoiled). The Ilford ULF program is amazing!

    It is cheap enough to buy a good Baby Rolleiflex and I develop my own black and white film. It is very satsfying, shooting, processing and scanning. I will most likely cut the 120 slide film down and roll a good bit of it this winter when the short days leave me bored anyway.

    Why not give a BR another whirl? Life is short!
    Best regards,
    Dave (GT)

    This is great! I think this bodes well for the film industry as a whole. Digital convenience is obvious, but the character of film is unmatched. I just had the Darkroom develop E6 slides. They develop, mount and scan copies so you can view them right away. Here's a link...

    Somewhere in the house, I'm not sure where or I'd scan it, I have a photo of my son aged four sitting on this boulder. He's 28 now, and the boulder is still just sitting there.

    While I can't find him at four, here he is at two in his Fisher-Price convertible. One of us is still driving the same car which is now 27 years old (hint: red one).

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

    Tsukiji Fish Market officially ended business today. When I was living in Tokyo in the 90s, I was fortunate to photograph the place over time.

    A tuna auctioneer



    A wholesaler slicing up a tuna from the morning auction. Maguro is the Japanese word for tuna.



    By early afternoon, the place is deserted.



    The images were taken with either a Mamiya C220 or Mamiya 6.

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

    While I was away on my trip, the two Leica ELPRO close-up lenses (VIIa + VIIb) I had ordered from folks on Ebay arrived. I had to source adapter rings to make 48mm to VII and 55mm to VII mounts for my R lenses. Everything finally arrived so I put them to the test copying a pair of Polaroid snaps I made on my bicycle ride in the fog this morning:




    both:
    MiNT Polaroid SLR670a + Polaroid Originals 600 B&W
    scanned with Leica CL + Elmarit-R 28mm + ELPRO VII b

    Nice clean rendering across the entire frame with very little if any rectilinear distortion. Pretty neat since the pair of ELPROs and the attachment rings, etc, altogether cost me something like $70, complete.

    enjoy!

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

    Yesterday I experimented with using an old Canon G9 in manual mode as a light meter - the LCD shows the exposure changes as you adjust shutter and aperture, and it makes a nearly idiot-proof way of ensuring there's no clipping. But it does feel like cheating, so it's back to the Sekonic today. 500c, 150/4 plus ext. tube, XP2, HC-110, X1 scan:

    I do like the Sonnar 150/4!

    I see it's time for some new fixer - those stripes are a peculiarity of underfixing XP2 after HC-110 development. They happen if you use standard dilution fixer, so I make mine a bit more concentrated. 5 minutes for the first 20 films and 10 minutes for the final ten films. This was film #26 and had ten minutes but I guess I can refix it if I want. Oh, they are arranged vertically as this was done in a motorised Rondinax 60.

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

    Lovely stuff, Chris!


    I've acquired a near-MINT Leica R6.2 body and accessories to use with my R lenses in addition to the Leicaflex SL and Leica CL (digital) bodies. The price was ridiculously low, and I figured, "why not have the last mechanical Leica SLR in addition to (nearly) the first?"

    So, after running a roll through it six times to test and check the body, its metering response, the function of the Motor Winder R and Motor Drive R4, etc etc, I've finally loaded a roll of fresh film to shoot. New film photos coming soon...!


    BTW: It's a really nice body. Reminds me of a super nicely finished Nikon FM2n with two metering patterns and some sweet finishing touches...

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

    The MiNT InstaKon RF70 proves to be a pretty nice camera. I'm one test roll into it now and having a good time learning it and how to get good results with it. Six of my ten first exposures are actually pretty nice photographs ... a darn good hit rate for any new camera ... and the first exposure from the pack of B&W Instax Wide film I think is remarkably good—and it's a flash exposure!


    MiNT InstaKon RF70 + Fujifilm Instax Wide B&W
    ISO 800 @ f/5.6 @ -- @ 1m focus

    I'm satisfied that it will make a lot of fine photographs for me, and was worth the money.

    enjoy,

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

    I have several packs of the discontinued Fuji FP300C, but as it's discontinued I am a bit savy using it. My best camera for utilizing it is the mighty Fuji GX680 which takes 80mm x 80mm images on that instant film. But, this film only increases in price because of availability, and eventually some company would have to start making a replacement for all those nice medium format cameras which use pack FP300C. I believe it's only a question of time with the boom of instant film photography.

    Instant film is interesting and would we get an usable negative for scanning, like it was with some type of Polaroid, why wouldn't it be the easiest and most convenient way into film photography.

    You can retrieve the negatives from FP300c (and even FP3000b with effort, I think) by using a mild bleach rinse on the discard portion of the peel apart packet.

    The remains of my last pack of FP300c are in my Hasselblad Polaroid back. I've been saving the remaining exposures (about six) for something special... Maybe I'll shoot them on TDay (tomorrow).

    I sold the rest of my pack film and pack film cameras to another enthusiast, and gave away all my extra Polaroid cameras (four Spectras, One Step+, three SX-70 autofocus cameras) to concentrate on one last original SX-70, the MiNT SLR670a and SLR670m, and a Kickstarter instant that takes Instax SQ. The latest revisions to the Impossible Project films, now Polaroid Originals, have improved dramatically and the Fuji film is quite good.

    Then this MiNT InstaKon RF70 (Instax Wide format) came up as being in early development. I sent a note in to them with a check, saying, "I'll take one whenever you get it done." That was a while back, they've just recently gotten enough made to satisfy some of the pre-orders. And it proves to have been worth it.

    These first two posts with it I 'scanned' by snapping a photo with my iPhone 8 Plus, but I'll make reference captures with the Leica CL and a more rigorous copy camera setup. That's good enough for me, I don't need negatives anymore. Just good quality captures.

    Yes I have tried that, but have got only subpar results. The black backing is indeed dissolved by bleach but the main problem that I can't solve is that the developing chemicals being spread onto the film causes a completely blotchy image on the 'reclaimed' negative. I have tried immediately washing the 'negative' side with different solutions but once the chemical pod is disrupted and spread for developing it won't go away anyhow and is leaving a very 'artsy' negative.

    Heads up indeed for the 'new' Polaroid efforts and nobody can say where we are in a few years.

    Certainly a Polaroid is easier to show and store than feet big prints. Here in Finland where I live the average apartment is quite small, and I usually print 8x11 inch. Those are manageable.

    The procedure I used when I was doing this was to seal the edges of the negative part to a clean sheet of glass with artist's tape, wash the black backing off with mild bleach, then water, let the taped up negative dry, remove it carefully from the glass, then wash it in Photo-Flo, and hang it to dry. This left a clean, clear, high quality negative from my Polaroid Land 350 camera.

    I didn't do it too often, but was experimenting to see what I could get out of it.

    Integral films have also been manipulated to pull the image out of the sandwich, but it's always been way too much effort for my druthers!


    Me, Yesterday - MiNT SLR670m - Polaroid Originals SX-70 Color film
    Digitized with iPhone 8 Plus

    I'd forgotten what film I had in this camera, so consumed the remaining three frames determining that it was SX-70 Color. Now I need to order a few more packs...! LOL

    The film had been in that camera for some time and gotten a bit old, thus the banding. Here's the camera, also snapped with the iPhone 8 Plus, on a tripod with the self-timer fitted.


    enjoy! and Happy Thanksgiving to everyone for whom it matters!

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

    I put the InstaKon RF70 to work yesterday evening to record our holiday dinner gathering of friends. I loaded up one pack of Instax Wide Color and did all flash photos on Auto in our condo. I am happy to report that it made ten excellent photographs. I used the rangefinder to set the focus and mostly used f/11: All are in good focus with clear bright colors; all but one are exposed as well as they can be and the one that isn't was purely operator error (it's slightly dark due to shooting into too big a room past the 3m limit of the flash's power).

    Very pleasing, solid performance out of this new MiNT camera. For this set of photos alone, the price was well warranted. I need to order more film...

    Scans a little later on.

    Yep! You are correct!

    My link needed updating and it took me to the previous page. Dang, been a little ore-occupied the past few months and never noticed. Thanks.

    Anyway, after a long time between the Db and Film Backs, we met up with TC in Piedmont Park yesterday. He used my 50c on his new Alpa TC, and I am shooting only Ektachrome (35mm and 120) for the next few weeks.

    I had forgotten how extraordinary the film backs on the H5 are to use. It was a wonderful morning to be our shooting in spite of the freezing temps and crazy wind. After finishing the 120, I used the lightweight plastic fantastic F80 with both new and old Ektachrome. So light and fast and the rewind sound was satisfying. After shooting some panos and a dozen handheld shots, it was time to go, sadly.

    It will be a few weeks to finish more E100 to send in for developing, so I have no images to share yet. I am only posting to remind myself and anyone else who is too busy at times, that even foul weather has its opportunities. And, it was quite an experience, good for the legs, good for the mind, and good for the soul.
    Best regards,
    Dave (GT)
