Hello this is my first post on this forum. I have been lurking for a while, doing research on the K5, when i stumbled on this thread. I have enjoyed viewing all the MF photos. I love my 67II however i dont use it much sadly due to its size and weight . My new years resolution is to use it more! Here are a couple from the dark depths of my hard drive. Sorry about the quality of the scans I only have a epson 4990 and i have never really nailed my work flow. Any advice on this would be gratefully received ,Thanks. I mainly use provia 100. All shots taken using the 200mm f4 latest edition, except the last one which i usd the 45mm I hope you like them.
p.s would the 67 lenses i have be ok on the K5, I know that i need an adaptor. but would they be sharp enough. I have the latest 45mm, 105mm, 200mm. Cheers

Nice shots and welcome. I'll try to offer some words of encouragement to support your new year resolution. The will to shoot the camera overcomes its size/weight unless there are physical limitations. Get a camera backpack large enough to carry the camera and a few lenses really helps. And take the camera out with the purpose of taking pictures with it instead of a contingency situation. That's when its size becomes inconvenient.

Thanks fs999, Tuco and lbenac. Luc: the pictures are 13-15 years old, now I use the Canon EOS 1DsII and the 7D+ 500mm f4 L IS for fauna photography. When I have the funds I will shot again the 600mm with the Pentax 645D. For now, I can use all my Pentax 645 lenses on my Canon cameras with the Mirex tilt and shift adapter.

Two more pictures with the 645n and the 600mm f5.6:

That first shot - WOW what an image - excellent separation of subject and depth of focus you have there, and the bokeh is so cool.

Two pictures from Katwijk beach, the Netherlands, with a fierce autumn wind blowing (which cannot be seen on the pictures however ... ). Both with A-75 mm lens, P645N and Illford Delta 400.

I screw up development with divided Pyrocat HD. I think that I did not agitate enough the bath b and I have large patches of uneven development.
Hey Luc, glad to see you've given it a shot. I haven't had these problems, but you may try doing a 3-5min pre-soak in distilled water or a shorter one, say 30sec to 1min in distilled water with 1-2ml of wetting agent. Pour the B developer in as fast as you can and agitate vigorously for the first .5-1 min. I usually do 5min in A agitating for 30 sec every 30 sec, and then 8min in B with agitation the first minute from the time I started to pour in, then for 10 seconds at 2, 4, and 6 min. I start to pour it out at 7:50. That first minute is the most critical. Hope that helps.

PS. It also appears there might be some mottling on the edges of the second shot. I've got this a few times when my tank was a bit dirty or if I had mixed with tap water.

I will try adding wetting agent during the pre-soak
I have done A as you describe
I have done B for a shorther time of 6:50 but I thing that the agitation pattern was weaker so this might be the culprit

I will check the tank but it's a SS Nikor that i use regularly so it gets cleaned all the time.

Water in Vancouver is one of the cleanest loweest in metals....in the World so I have never used distilled water.

Thanks a lot and I will keep at it on some test rolls - not the ones from my travel in France

Cheers,

Luc

I've always used distilled water for PMK Pyro and TF-4/TF-5 fixer per the instructions even though the Pacific Northwest has really good water. Can't say if that helps or not since I never tried it without. I've been using PMK Pyro for around 15 years.

Sounds like a good argument.
I know from a post on another forum that Sandy King uses tap water when the water is clean i.e. our regions for Pyrocat.
I will give a try to distilled water in order to eliminate a variable.

Cheers,
