You snooze; you loose. A guy had laid his catch on the near end of the table and walked back to talk to the other people. I stood there for too long before I realized that might make an interesting picture. My gear was stowed in my backpack. By time I got it out and ready for the shot, he had moved the fish to the other end with the guy already cleaning a catch. I took the shot anyway.



Zeiss Makro-Planar CF T* 120mm f4, Kodak 400TMY, Rodinal 1+100 Stand

Still a nice shot tuco, thanks for the story behind it.

I used the K-5 along side the 645d... I'm going to write another front page article comparing the two cameras.
Will indeed be an interesting comparison. I'm looking forward to seeing more 645d shots too.
...

After messing up a roll of the new Portra 400 with some really poor shots, I've had some better luck more recently.

Pentax 67, 105/2.4, new Portra 400
Exposed f/16 for 1-2 minutes

Sweet shot. Really creamy. It seems to do just fine in long exposures.

One outcome we can predict, I think. The K-5 rules convenience, nimbleness, features and versatility. The 645D rules image quality.

Thanks! I am really happy with how this turned out.
I was pretty much guessing what the reciprocity might be that night, never having thought to read up on it. I just gave it something like a stop or so more exposure than a comparable digital shot. And bracketed a fair bit. The film really seems to have impressive range, apart from one shot the contrast of my negatives is pretty good all round.

For what it's worth, came out looking better than comparable digital shots from the same night Opening the shutter for longer helped though, I was restricted to 30sec on the digital.

cheers

The modern age of photography means more than one picture to make one. Couldn't you combine four, thirty-second picture with your digital to make a longer exposure? That's the norm for digital landscape. Focus stack for sharpness and exposure blend for dynamic range.

pretty much :P

though the K-5 has nicer noise beyond 1000 iso.

Yes, I should probably give that a try sometime. I guess I am fairly pedestrian in my digital shooting, just do single shots and have never done HDR or any sort of multi exposure stuff. But why not!

Thanks Smolk.

OK, you are even more crazy than I was on my last trip!
I took the 67 with 2 lenses, K-5 with 5 lenses and my MX. Can I ask how you carried all that?

And I look forward to a great many more shots

Corsica, Bonifacio. Great whether, sun all over. And hardly pp'ed Ektar shots. In that respect the Provia shots are worse.... Slides are much more difficult to expose....
