October 8, 2021

I was gifted a Leica M3 double stroke and 50mm Rigid Summicron by a neighbor. These are from the first roll of Kodak TriX. Having had serious dust issues with the negatives, I wiped these two with PEC 12 Emulsion Cleaner and the dust issues are relieved. The lens did well in bright sunlight. Aside from minor post processing increasing the whites and the highlights some, these are as shot from this beautiful old camera. Images shot in lower light with this kit suffer from a loss of contrast. The shutter speeds at 125 and above seem reasonably accurate. The camera has been sitting for an awfully long time in a leather case. The leatherette is well past its prime. I’ll post a picture of the camera on my main page. Youxin Ye has a 4 month wait for CLA’s, and this camera and lens warrant the work, but I don’t want to send it off until I put it to its paces.

July 17, 2021, More Images from Pentax 645, TriX, 75mm

More images, all shot with Portra and either the Nikon F6 or the Pentax 645. One detractor with the 645 is that the image dimensions are the same in the lab scans, so determining what camera I used is hard. Images 1, 5, 7, 8 and 10 were made using the F6 and 24 – 70 lens. The others are the 645 and 75mm lens.

This is an amalgamation of color C-41 images shot using the Pentax 645 and Nikon F6. Film ranges from Portra 400 (the most used), Portra 800 (one roll) and Fuji Pro 400 H (one roll). It is a gallery shot mostly this summer (2021) but for some of the images that languished in the F6 from Portra 800 from around Christmas. Those familiar with the different film’s characteristics will be able to tell what stock was used in most cases. Developed by the fantastic Kerry’s Warwick Photo lab, highly recommended.

I used Ansel Adams’ souping on the following, or something akin to it. I used 1:100 developed for 30 minutes. Agitate for the first 30 seconds, then 15 seconds every 3 minutes. This roll was shot at box speed. I quite like the results. Aside from the images of the dory that underexposed the expected shadow detail that Ansel drew from this dilution is evident. Again, I used the Pentax 645NII and 75mm lens, a combination that is immensely enjoyable.

This set was shot using JCH Streetpan. It was a very sunny day and I think I underexposed the images. It was an exercise in scanning frustration, the first 18 images were full of dust. I cleaned the film off with Pec Cleaner and used the dust removal tool in my scanning software. The Pec Cleaner seems to have removed most of the dust. These were some of the thinnest negatives I have developed in a long time but they still turned out to be passable.

This set was shot with TriX @200 with the Pentax 645NII. I believe I used the 75mm lens.

I believe the below image was shot with a since sold Contax G2.

Kodak Plus X 125, Long Expired

My friend Suzanne Barnes gave me a box full of expired film.  It is at least 25 years old given the dates on the boxes.   This was a cool roll of Plus X.  The images required some exposure and contrast but came out to a pleasant surprise.  I shot the film at 80 ISO […]

The Plus X images end at the black and white chair. What follows is a complete smattering of images, the settings on the post got garbled, but the images are film-based and that is all that matters.
