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
A journey of a thousand miles first begins with one step! Congrats on your first roll of BW. Are you developing this yourself? The content aware healing tool in CS5 is a real plus and a time saver for cleaning up dust specs on BW scans.

I read your aerial photography project. That sounds ambitious and interesting. Are you going to be using your RZ67 for this project?

Oh, this isn't my first BW roll. I did started developing at home this year when I got a 4x5 - though I've rarely used it.

I shoot with my 645N all the time, but I wanted a nice studio camera to take outdoors because the sync was pretty dismal. I'll also be the first to admit I'm lazy about finding dust - but I really should use more content-aware fill. Good point.

Thanks! Probably, though camera RAW is a lot better suited for aerial photography from my experience. I've shot a few slides and a roll of ektar, but there's less freedom. FWIW, I use silverfast.

I've never shot IR, but that'd be really good for aerial photography. I'll prob pick up some thick red filter (I hear 4-5 stops is good) and shoot pushed SFX 200. On the other hand, can getting psuedo-IR from RAW is a snap.

I see. I thought your project was going to be on film is why I asked. A R72 IR filter will do the job. I've shot some efke IR820 film last year with that filter at ISO 3 and it seem to expose okay.

Yeahhh, that's a little too slow for shooting aerial. If I'm on a cessna going 150 mph at 2k feet, a several second exposure is out of the question. Based on experience I don't like shooting less than ~1/250 with my 50mm on my K7 (so 75mm on 35mm) at low altitudes.

I'll improvise something for film, certainly, with a test roll in the first flight or if I fly commercially before then. I've been meaning to shoot IR for fun on the ground too, I just got to pick up a filter - probably this weekend.

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
Really nice clouds and soft tone !

Nice shots ! If you want a faster IR film there is the Rollei Infrared 400 iso (25 iso with R72)...

One of my favorite photographers in the middle of this mediocre shot, (wearing the black cap), and also an ex-Pentax 645 shooter....free ice-cream to whoever can put a name to his image.

And another from the same roll of film.

I will take the car but leave the shorts and the beer
That is a fun shot and a great keepsake for your friend. It should probably frame it in his office to lighten up in time of stress.

cheers,

Thanks. This is really just one spot where I walk my dog but I take a camera when I suddenly feel like I have to shoot something or I want to test film, lens......

I do not know anything about IR. I had seen the work of a Rabbi (in Israel) that shoot in IR and it was pretty darn good. Now I am not sure that I would buy his book which is 100% IR but a lot of his work definitly catch the eye.

Cheers,

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

Thanks I am not really convinced yet.
The first try with this film at 1+1+100 do not feel that different from Rodinal 1+100 and seems to lack a bit in shadow details but less in grain. That said Efke 25 is (for me) high contrast.

I have to try some more stuff with the developer and it might be that divided and changing B time is really the way to go.
I have to say that I was somewhat impressed by the result of Diafine with TriX @ 1250 - having that speed for hand holding and results that look like ISO 100 film is a boon.
Now granted development in Diafine is as straightforward as it gets so you will likely always get the same regardless.

Cheers,

Luc

Kicking back at the cabin. You should be careful what you ask for. I had a slow shutter and asked these guys to "freeze".
That is amazing!

Yesterday UPS delivered my newly acquired Fuji GW690 to my office (BTW the bloodsuckers charged $58 of brokerage fees - I hate when US vendors ship only by UPS).
I had stashed a roll of 320 and a Pilot2 as I new that I could not wait for the week-end - so I snicked out of the office (we all have to deal with monsters that do not understand photography) and find the least ugly spot...

It is amazing how this camera handle - pretty much like a 35mm

Congrats on the new camera. I saw the picture of it you posted. Sure looks sweet. I picked up a stash of 320TXP before it was gone from the store.

Luc, that's a terrible camera and really poor results you got there. Better save yourself further embarrassment by sending it to me, as I'm shameless and a very poor photographer - thus unlike you, I have no reputation to maintain
