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

Smooth results. I have to investigate Acros, however I have so much stuff in stock storage.
Cool! :) I am experimenting with all of my frozen film, fresh film, different developers, different cameras, different lenses, and I have so little time or energy!

But it is so much fun and relaxing. :):):)

These are just some of film cameras and lenses that I've serviced. Since the start of 2020, I've purchased 10 cameras, sold 20, and I want to sell more, but which ones? Because I am usually buying cameras in parts/as-is condition, most of my investment has been my labor, not money. But even so, this is a lot of stuff for one person! Not a fan of the mindset which says that a person needs to hang onto things because they won't be affordable in the future: IME, broken Hasselblad outfits can occasionally be had in the $300 range, Nikon F, F3 and Canon F-1, for $150 or less, easily. There's no Leica M here, and that's not a coincidence: That market seems overheated to me.

This is about the 3rd time I've re-visited and re-scanned this old B&W 120, negative. Original shot about 45 years ago on Cape Cod bay using Rolleiflex 2.8F. This scan was done using OM-1 camera in HR (80 MP) mode and processed in DXO and LR with Negative Pro. There was some banding in the original from uneven development so I also replaced the sky in this version.

Last night I had fun developing a roll of Fujifilm 100 Acros II (shot with the F80, 50/1.8 G lens), in Rodinal with a bit different protocol. The resulting negatives were “delicious”.

This morning I scanned 35 of 37 negatives and so far I have only processed 5.

So, I thought it would be cool to share a few final images at a time as I work through processing them.

I hope you like them.:)
