Thanks, The cliffs offer many photo opportunities. Glad I had the T-Max 400 as it was rather dark and the wind had everything moving, except the rock of course

Raven's Nest, Schoodic Point, Acadia NP, Maine

P67 45mm @ f/22 Kodak T-Max 400 developed in Xtol.

Very blustery with winds threatening to take me, the tripod, and camera away!
Nice shot. It doesn't quit look like a nor'easter though.

It's a dream of mine to shoot at Acadia. Lovely work.

Why thanks. I really wanted to shoot this in color but the dark, gloomy day called for more ISO than I had on hand with Portra 400.

While shooting the dog in the prior picture, I decided to do a push test on 400TMY. Set to EI1600 plus only a one-stop push from my normal development time.

500C/M, CF T* 150mm f4, 400TMY @ EI1600, PMK Pyro, f4 @ 1/500, Pentax Spot Meter, Split Tone in LR4

Congrats for this shoot.

How much difficult was take this shoot with few light?
I speak about the see on the viewfinder.

Before post this shoot here, have you applied some denoise?

How good remain the subject with an image more larger? As for example 1280720 or, eventually, 19201080?

No problem at all. There has to be no light before it's a problem. I use a WLF on my Pentax too.

No noise reduction was applied. The image was pretty grainy but once scaled down, it cleaned up. So the larger the image, the more grain.

I usually use Lightroom for processing. But the dog shot was just CS5. The girl shot looks grainier in the background to me but actually it had less grain at full size than the Delta3200 shot. It was processed in LR4. I've only done a couple of film images in LR4 so far but I'm thinking I am not getting as smooth of results as LR3. I'll have to do a test. But, hey, we embrace the grain when you shoot film. It's all part of its look and feel.

Very interesting.
Have you make even some comparison with a prism viewfinder?
For known which work better on low light?

I have both the prism and WLF for the P6x7. I think they work about the same in low light to me but it has been so long since I've used the prism I couldn't say for sure. I will check it out tonight.

Since do you prefer more use the WLF that means that you usually use a tripod when you shoot?
For the pentax 6x7 with kind of tripod and head combination do you usually use?
Since the slap is a lot more stronger respect at when you use your hasselblad?

On the last two shoot that you send here, given the extremely fast shutter speed and the lower point of shooting, was hand handled?
