What apertures - not wide-open I presume or it looks like you'd be way over 1/1000th at ASA 640?
For the HP5 shots - #3, #4 & #5;

#3 was f/4.5 1/500
#4 was f/4.0 1/750
#5 was f/2.8 1/90

This was late afternoon and he light was fading rapidly

lol.... oops, sorry, my bad, I thought it was the P67 75mm f2.8 - a very rare and expensive, yours is P645 75mm lens.

Apologies then... , seems we were talking at crossed purposes... I mostly do hand held and at 6x7 I use Mamiya 7's, but I only recently picked up a 645n with the 75mm and 45mm and, having primarily been a 35mm Leica shooter, have to confess the Pentax is quickly becoming my preferred camera.

I haven't been able to take any colour film for developing for around 2 months and finally got it done and then scanned at the weekend. Lately I've been using a Yashica 124G and a couple of folding Zeiss Ikon cameras for my MF shots. The Pentax 645 has my first ever roll of slide film (Velvia) in it, which I hope to finish off this weekend.

So here are a few shots from the Yashica, all taken on Portra 160NC which expired in 2010 or 2011. I got seven rolls of it free when I bought the camera

Here are a couple for you 'Yanks' taken by a 'Limey' in 1991 In Denver, Colorado, Pentax 6x7 Mk I + 45mm f4 SMC Pentax, Kodachrome 64 ROLLFILM !




I went carrying my heavy 6x7 outfit all the way on Aircraft hoping to get some good 'Stock Photos ' -- NO SALES and now the Agency has sent back all my 'Hard Copy' transparencies as they want only Digital on Full -Frame Cameras !

Tried my hand at processing C-41 at home

I have recently tried my hand at processing C-41 at home. It is feasible, but you have to be precise about times and temperatures, of course, and have everything set up correctly beforehand. Here are some of my first attempts (Portra 160) (click on the thumbnails to expand):

#1 Norway: View from state highway 55 towards Leirdalen (smc Pentax 6x7 45mm F4.0, 1/125 @ F9.5, Portra 160)


#2 Norway: View from state highway 55 towards Jotunheimen *) (smc Pentax 6x7 45mm F4.0, 1/125 @ F11.0, Portra 160)


#3 Denmark: The local marina: Rungsted Havn with the Swedish (and formerly Danish) island of Ven and home of the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe in the background: (S-M-C Takumar 6x7 200mm F4.0, 1/250 @ F9.5)


*) BTW, Jotunheimen is where the largest and most dreadful Norwegian trolls live:

Looks good LaHo. Some day I will try C41 at home but for now I'm happy to stick with monohrome for home developing and color film goes to the lab. My problem with color negative film is that I can't get a decent scan to save my life! I can never get the colors right. I have tried numerous methods. VueScan is no help. When I followed detailed instructions it messed up the settings in VueSan so bad that I had to email Mr. Hamrick and get help just getting it back to normal.

What I would really like to be able to do at home is E-6 since I shoot a fair amount of reversal film. But since I don't even have a darkroom I guess all of this is a pipe dream for the time being.
Thanks for sharing the photos!

Thank you, revdocjim. I'm not satisfied with my scans either. I think #2 is the best one here.
I have the CanoScan 9000F, but would like a better scanner. The optimum would of course be a proper darkroom. I have, in fact, acquired an fine enlarger capable of handling 120 film and even 4x5" negatives - but I haven’t set up a proper darkroom, and many further investments would be necessary to make colour enlargements, e.g. a colour analyzer.

If the scanning software has a film profile it helps a lot. I can usually get Portra 160 and Ektar 100 pretty good but have a hard time with Portra 400. And the few color films that I've tried that have a profile in VueScan the results are pretty good color-wise. However, VueScan has no profile for any recent films. I've emailed and asked why he doesn't update that since it is, after all, scanning software.

But another option people seem to have success with is ColorPerfect. You need to scan a Scanner-RAW file and use his software that has color profiles for just about all films. He has instructions and that Flickr link has a bunch of help too. I tried it a while back but his OSX support at the time was not good enough (don't know what it is like now).

What a crock! Could you send them drum scans? Or would they spot the absence of EXIF data and shoot you down? Seems that they're less concerned with quality than with keeping up with the Joneses. Did they furnish any rationale behind this? As far as full frame goes, what could be more full frame than a Pentax 67 negative or transparency? Maybe 4x5 or 8x10? They sound like dolts, just my opinion.

It sure is. The images are definitely from a full frame camera. You can add some EXIF meta data to the scanned files if you're so inclined. But perhaps the agency is not setup anymore to handle film or willing to pay for the scans. Drum scans are not cheap.

I wonder if they would reject 645D images because they are not full frame for the format. I bet they wouldn't.
