First time using one - but the first hurried roll from the 503CW 'blad and 2,8/80 Planar is done. Shot on Kodak T-Max 100, souped in Xtol 1:1. Click for larger/info:

The rest are all in this exhibition (http://litpixel.com/ee/list.php?exhibition=68&ee_lang=eng). 10 out of 12 shots; the two missing were brackets (dupes). What a load of fun it was to shoot, and this eclectic test roll seems to indicate it's in working order. Now on to business! :p

I can see why, it's a solid camera with my favorite optics - Zeiss! :)

So I totally spaced mixing up the HC-110 the other day. Was supposed to be dilution H, ended up mixing dilution B... But left the HP5+ in the soup for the full ten minutes. Ooops. I managed to save most of the shots with a bit of fiddling on the scanning and a little more in Photoshop. They do have a bit of a "gritty" feel from the grain and all, which is what I was after anyway - so I lucked out a little. Click for larger/info:

Beautiful shots. They remind me of home. I grew up in CT in a salt box house from the 1740s. It has a very similar look and feel to it.

Thanks, Stuart!

Wow, nice. The clapboard is is great on these older structures. Very, I don't know - "New Englandy?"
