    Even that first test image is pretty sharp!

    Of course there's a limit to the film's resolution, and the image is small (about 50% of the area of a Polaroid SX-70 frame). But they're cute and look nice when I get the exposure right. That's what I'm working on now: guidelines for exposure. The film is ISO 800, I've set the ISO on my meter to 100 as a starting point per the instructions. So far, it's looking like ISO 50 is probably close to the mark. The relay lens is f/4 so lens openings larger than that will affect DoF but not transmitted illumination. My first pack of film in it is dedicated to figuring out a good approximation for how to set exposure, then I'll start seeing what I can get from it.

    Street? Likely not. It will be fun for some kinds of photography, but it's never going to rival an SX-70 for all around versatility and usability. I can do street with an SX-70 ... I wouldn't dream of it with this. It's just a little too clumsy in use.

    Makes me dream of an Instax Square back for my Hasselblad 500CM or SWC, however. I wonder what it would take to create that...

    Went out for a walk to test the Instant Magny 35 in action. My neighbor's two boys were riding scooters in the parking lot across the street...

    Cool device, Godfrey! I have the polaroid back for my Hasselblad, but the image doesn't cover the full film, so it looks a little weird. The resolution is also terrible, so I haven't really used it much.

    Another shot from a walk in the woods:

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

    Yes, I have the Polaroid back for the Hassy too. It's of limited use now, in the age of digital, and the film is no longer in production so I keep it mostly as an artifact of days gone.

    But this gizmo with Instax Square film gives me pause to think: How cool would it be to adapt one of the processing/film holder units to a Hasselblad back? The Instax Square format is a 62x62 image area, almost the same as Hasselblad's 56x56. I'm sure it could be done with some ingenuity...

    I saw a project of this sort recently ... Gotta look it up and see what they did.

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

    I think it's only a question of time when we are going to see commercially produced instant
    backs for current instant film types and 'vintage' cameras. Your Magny 35 is certainly one
    of the earliest implementations. Backs for medium format cameras with exchangeable backs
    should be a lot easier to manufacture without any magnifying optics. I don't exactly need
    it today so I can wait and see what evolves. If not then some business could start producing
    FP-100 series compatible instant packs. This world is really changing fast and there are so
    many cameras out here that need film.

    On a cost perspective it's not so different with instant becaus every time I click a Velvia frame
    it costs me about 2 with processing and film.

    I hunted around a little bit on Kickstarter. Two Hasselblad-Instax back projects were started but neither hit their funding goals. However, these guys have hacked an Instax Mini to be a back for a Hasselblad 500: https://mymodernmet.com/hasselblad-instax-hybrid/
    It's not a production piece, but I've sent email to see what they ran into in doing it beyond what's in the article. An SQ6 camera is about $100 and could be the basis for a project like that.

    But getting another Instant Magny 35 might be a better way to go. They're about $180, but the dark slide and other bits, as well as the motorized processing unit, are all there already. The tricky part would be to get the film plane in the right spot after adapting a Hassy back mount. Hmm hmm hmm. Seems eminently doable, though. Some madness may transpire.

    The Artist On Exhibit
    Polaroid SLR 670x by MiNT + Polaroid TeleAdapter 1.5x
    Polaroid Originals 600 Color film

    My friend Larry Colen participated at a "Meet the Artist" event this past Sunday, up into the foothills of the South Bay at Redwood Love in Saratoga. I made an afternoon cycle expedition of it ... a 21 mile ride with a 500 foot elevation gain! ... and took the chance to capture this portrait of Larry in the gallery.

    I didn't want to use flash so it's not quite as sharp as it might be, and the light has an overly warm tone, but I like it more than flash would have looked since I didn't bring the flash extension cable with me to get the flash into a more suitable position. About a half-second exposure... I did a quick capture with the iPhone and use SnapSeed to do the 'not particularly perfect' correction for display.

    Enjoy!

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

    In the class of "Thoroughly Impractical But Still Amusing Things To Do With An Instant Magny 35/Leica M", I set up this entertaining beast:


    It's an old Sigma 600mm f/8 cat in Nikon mount that I bought some years back for less than $100. Mostly useless, but too cheap to waste time selling, I thought I'd play with doing extreme telephoto with the Instant Magny 35.

    I set it up on the tripod and fitted the Leica CL to it to zero in the focus and find the correct exposure, then carefully removed the CL from it and fitted the M4-2 and Instant Magny 35. I made an exposure at 1/125 second (lens opening is of course a fixed f/8):


    Notice that the Sigma 600 vignettes when mounted on the Leica M lens mount. This is because of the relatively small diameter of the mount flange ... It doesn't vignette on a Nikon F.

    To show the scale of the magnification this achieves, I made the same photo with the M4-2 and Pentax-L 43mm f/1.9 Limited, same exposure settings:


    Mostly silly and time consuming, but heck: It keeps me off the streets.

    enjoy!
    G

    Addendum:
    Oh yeah, I did snap an exposure of the steeple with the Leica CL + Sigma 600mm too, to be sure I had the exposure and focus correct. Captured raw and processed in SnapSeed on the iPad Pro 11. I thought you might like to see it:


    I didn't L->R flip the Instax SQ prints, that's why they're reversed from this image.

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

    For the first time in a couple of years I took my Fuji GW690II (aka 'Texas Leica') out and about earlier this month. At only eight frames a roll it does not take long before a change of film is required! One each from Portra 400 & Ektar 100, the Portra first.

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

    This new acquisition returned from the full service I had done today. I'm looking forward to making photographs with it! Had one of these many, many years ago ... It was my favorite fixed-lens MF camera excepting only the Hasselblad SWC:






    Fujifilm GS645S Wide 60 Professional

    It's a lovely piece of kit. Can't wait to put it to work now! I've fitted a B+W 49mm metal lens hood for wide angle lens, suitable for up to a FF 35mm FoV.

    Thanks, Godfrey. I think you're right, the colors are a bit off. A combination of my first time shooting and processing slide film, poor exposure, and Velvia colors. I tried another take at them and replaced the old ones.

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

    Long time no see. It has been a very interesting winter - an adventure with a stray cat led to huge lymph nodes which looked like a relapse of the CLL, but which, I was certain, were bartonellosis ("cat scratch fever"). They have become much less tender and quite a bit smaller after the appropriate antibiotics, so I may yet chisel away at a few more of the films in my freezer. Let's celebrate with some still life/still alive flowers (500cm, Distagon 4/50, XP2 Super @ISO100, HC-110, X1 scans, cropped for printing):

    Nice improvement!
    Yes, transparency film is always a bit more finicky to get right, in my experience. I stopped shooting it so many years ago now...!

    G

    status: First film is loaded in the GS645S. I made a few exposures yesterday, might yet finish the roll today. Can't wait to see what they look like! It's such a pleasure shooting with this great old camera! So easy to work with!

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

    I also took some shots at night on this roll of Velvia. I tried to be careful of blowing highlights with this entire roll, even bracketing a few shots, but still ended up underexposed most of the time. This film is expired, so maybe I should be considering it a stop slower.

    "Scanning" these darker shots also proved quite tricky with my usual setup, because I was getting a reflection of the camera & lens on the film. I had to do my best to black out all light around the film and shoot with my 180mm lens so that the camera was farther away.

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

    First test roll out of the Fuji GS645S Wide 60 Professional, drying:



    Wheee!

    Processed with the Rondinax 60. Looks like one frame was skunked by poor loading (frame #2 at the bottom of the hanging roll; my fault) but everything else looks great.
    ...
    All dry now: I'll set up and scan it a bit later, perhaps after dinner.

    From the Fuji GS645S Wide 60 Professional first test roll. Captured to digital with the Film Lab app on an iPhone 8 Plus.














    First time I'd used the Film Lab app. It's a bit funky but it does a decent job and is very quick. :-)

    I'll do finish captures with the Leica CL copy setup when I have a little more time.

    enjoy!

    I cycled to Japan Town for lunch yesterday, carrying the InstaKon RF70. Only made one exposure the entire ride, but I like it.

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

    I went to visit my old buddy down in SLO yesterday. Don is 94 now, still as sharp as can be, and a total pleasure to be able to spend time with still! We've done a lot of photography together over the years ...

    Anyway, he was feeling well so we went to Morro Bay and wandered about the little marina where we had lunch. I shot my second roll through the Fuji GS645S Wide 60 ... and I have to say, I love this camera as much or more now than I did when I had the first one of them so many years ago! It's just right in the hand in so many ways.

    This was a roll of XP2 Super exposed at EI 320, kind of a perfect film speed for the GS645S. I'll process it at home in HC-110 @ 1:49; using chrism's chart (thank you!) for 10 minutes instead of my usual 8. Can't wait to see how it looks!

    Onwards, always onwards!

    The XP2 Super negatives processed per the above are just about perfect! And the Fuji has such an excellent lens!

    I've included the link to a full-resolution JPEG. The sharpness, texture, and tones of this film are just lovely. The capture with the Leica CL and Macro-Elmarit-R 60mm lens nets a 22.1 MPixel image when set up right ... enough for almost anything.

    enjoy,

    Nicely done, Godfrey! XP2 Super cooked in HC-110 doesn't look, to my eyes, very much at all like it does in C-41. Your photo lacks the characteristic swathes of undetailed black I associate with C-41, and is rich in midtones.
