Steve, I think he was referring to development but I may have misunderstood.
Makes sense...brain fart on my part!

Will do, but I'm afraid you'd be the one teaching me a thing or two. I've just been lucky. Stand development though... I can't get that right to save my life!
Here we go, I have reasonable success with stand development. So you show me "yours" and I show you "mine" while the wifes are having a drink and tell themselves how boring is photography

cheers,

Luc

Steve it's Sunday night and your mind is too preoccupied with how to shoot all the pre-war cameras so you forget about the trivial
Talking of which, I would like soon to pick-up your brain on how to use old cameras.
I inherited a Zeiss 6x9 folder Icarette 551/12 that is now been restored but when I have it back I will need some tips if you do not mind.

Cheers,

Luc

Two more from the P67 and 105/2.4 on Portra 400. Mine is on the way to Eric for repair





The new Portra is great; it scans extremely well and is almost indistinguishable from Ektar (maybe a tiny bit more grain). At least with my Epson, it does not have a lot of contrast from the straight scan, but color curves can go a long way.

Well it has arrived - my new Pentax 67, the 50/4, 90/2.8 and 200/4. The 75 shift is still on its way.





P67 50/4 F11 Y2 Across 100




P67 90/2.8 F11 Y2 Across 100




Cheers,

Luc
Glad to hear you liked the 67 Luc. Pity about the development issues, but your shots look rather nice

That Portra does look great. I'll have to try some. Interesting how you note that it's similar to Ektar...

Ibenac, some nice shots there, and sorry to hear your "lost" ones. And congrats on the Pentax 67 gear; it's a great system... But I have to tell you there is no 50mm lens in the P67 lineup. There were three 55's though; one f/3.5 and two different f/4 lenses. With 77mm filter size, yours is one of the latter two.

Thanks Dougg, I corrected the focal length and yes it is Pentax 67 one

Jussi (Nesster) is probably your best resource for those old folders. I would just say to set the aperture/shutter and shoot away!

Thanks, A little dust yeop though i got it all. some of it on the windows is actually the lights from inside the building, some minor scratches too(should have used a hardening Fixer on the Rollei apparently). bugger of a film to scan took 2 weeks for it to flatten enough
last time i use it now that it's almost used up (a couple of rolls awaiting development or finishing in a back)

thanks, i am on it. really the issue is the film. Original stock Retro 100 is nasty for curl. it took 2 weeks under a heavy stack of books and it's still not flat. need to work on some developing technique as well. that was the first roll i've done in close to 30 years, i'm just tired of paying others and want the option on developers.

that Arsat is great. nice night shot

P67II with 105/2.4 and Fomapan 400 @ 320...







This is from my second roll with this cheap film, and I must say I like it a lot. The only major issue is that it is very, very prone to get scratched.

Next up is Efke 25!
