While on the boat theme, here is a negative I found tucked away taken some years ago when the Lady Washington was in town.




Pentax 6x7, 55mm, Kodak VHC

Thanks. Well, I've taken lots of shots while sailboat racing with this camera. More with 135 just because telephoto is needed often. I don't see why you can't shoot the 67 like a K1000. It is just larger is all to me.
I don't see why you can't use the 67 in this manner either. I was just thinking about what some people seem to say on the internet - that the 67 is more of a tripod camera etc. I like how you prove that as BS
Looks like a nice tall ship too.

cheers

Shot from another sailboat. We were getting passed. They just punched through our wind shadow. One of the few situations I put a metered TTL prism on this camera.




Pentax 6x7, 165mm, Kodak 320TXP

was this with a yellow filter?

I just got a mamiya rz67. Dunno if eventually posting photos from that camera will be taboo

That's a fantastic sailing shot Tuco. The stormy backdrops a creates a great setting

No filter. I couldn't afford the speed loss. I really don't think a yellow would have made for more drama in the sky that day. The color of the clouds were dark gray to white. Yellow would have made any blue in the sky more gray. I think the white of the sky made for more contrast between the dark and light.

Thanks. Some of the other shots on that roll have even more dramatic sky but the boats were not as interesting. There is always good action when rounding a marker when boats come together at that point. The boats are close, sails are changing and the crew is busy but unfortunately so am I as a crew member and no time to take a shot.

Pentax's 67 and 645 really are designed to use like a 35mm SLR (just larger and heavier but not unmanageably so)

Others like the Mamiya rb/rz 67 are far less so as they are quite a bit larger and heavier
The Bronicas also make good walkabouts if they are equipped with the prism as opposed to waist level finder My ETRsi is not much heavier than my k10/grip/24-70 combo though quite a weight jump from my km with a 50 1.7

Some photos from a train show that I went to back in October, where myself and another Pentaxian met up for a couple of hours. Also my first home developed roll of 120.

Your first roll turned out great. FP4+ doesn't have a steep shoulder and good for these shots it looks like.

Thanks tuco I am happy with the results, development wise anyway.
By the steep shoulder comment, are you referring to the contrast of the film and how it responds to highlights?
The lighting was rather bad in this place and ranged from deep shade to matt black engines in full bright sun.

I'm getting to like this film quite a lot recently. The old style grain, contrast and exposure latitude appeals to me. I also did some car show shots with FP4+ recently with 135.

cheers

Yes. The few rolls I've shot of it were of people. And I thought its mid-tones for skin were nice.

Taken on Kodak Portra 400 NC, believe it or not!
Also, believe it or not - this was taken hand-held!
Unbelievable !

Portra 400NC again. Handheld, with my elbows sitting on a guardrail for stability.
Superb light !

Ah, what a thread!
I'm getting a 67II tomorrow, and browsing the web for info on it, I found this forum. So, let me cheat some and post a few 6x7 shots with a Fujica rangefinder camera until I've got the Pentax, will you? I sold it because I wanted an SLR instead, but it was a nice beast to play with for starters.

Provia 100F and Fujinon S 100/3.5...
Nice film !

Kicking back at the cabin. You should be careful what you ask for. I had a slow shutter and asked these guys to "freeze". They did and it looks like it too, lol.
The portrait on the wall freezed also... lol

First try Pyrocat HD 1+1+100 18' semi-stand - Efke 25 @ 25 - Pentax 645 A35/3.5









I chickened out using divided Pyrocat because it uses 5 times more developer and shipping of the bottles from the US is a killer. As soon as I have several roll to develop at the same time I will try Pyrocat divided.


Cheers,

Luc

Looks like it worked with good results. The clouds really are a nice touch in #1.

From the first roll off my Mamiya RZ67 on Acros with the 110 f/2.8.



A few rolls later with the same lens on Provia 100.

I realized how razor fine dept of field is on 67 wide open and messed up too many shots
