Yes, in aperture priority mode ("A") you get halfstops too.
Sounds handy... Only camera I have that can do such a thing is my digital.

These are from yesterday. Ilford FP4+ in Fomadon R09 with the 67II...
Gorgeous tones in those b&w, Martin. And like others here, I love the rain drops.

Also, the mini in the last picture made me smile

Here is one I took with an old folding voigtländer, probably made in the 30's. Every time I use it (which is not all that often I'm amazed at how good it still is. Both exposure and framing were a guess, though, as this thing has of course no light meter and doesn't help much with framing. Film was FP4 and I'm showing here the scan that came from the lab that processed the film, without any kind of post processing (only because I have no time for that these days).

Very nice, it does have that vintage look, even the guy looks vintage I love shooting with the old folders.


Here's one from a 1920's No.1 Pocket Kodak Series II folder, Fomapan 100:

Nice, Thomas. I have an old folding 1930s Kodak that I really need to try out again soon.

Love this shot Jussi, one of my favourite B&Ws I've seen in a while.

Nice tones in the first picture. The gray, overcast day looks all too familiar that's been excessive here for this time of year.

Thanks so much! One thing that worries me - does it appear too dark? On my home monitor you can make out the blocks on the gate wall, but at work it all gets too dark. I'd like some triangulation here, so I know what to look for at home.

I Viewed it on three monitors. At home on my 30" HD Cinema and work on a cheap Dell. Both have the brick wall in Zone I and barely II on the lower end. On a laptop LCD monitor where dark and mid tones are raised, I can see the brick wall except for the very top of the shot.

Thanks Tuco. It was very overcast where I took those shots, on the east coast of NZ in the south pacific. I was a little annoyed as there was a snow capped mountain range that could be seen from the beach, but it was covered by low cloud almost the entire time.

He does, doesn't he? And he really was dressed "vintage", in a fashion typical of many of those old immigrants from Northern Africa you find in that neighbourhood. I do wish I had not cut his feet, though. Oh well, I should probably use that camera more often, to get better at framing with it

Thanks guys!
Almost every shot I've posted in this thread was shot handheld. Most of the above ones were at 1/125 second, which gives no mirror slap related blur at all with the 105 or shorter lenses. I think people are way too afraid of that. Sort of an internet myth. With the 55/4 I can get fully sharp results down to 1/45 second or so.
Amazing firmness! Congratulations for the very very sharp shots!
