Edmundrt - Thanks. I've used it on a few Provia shots and a few B/W. I think I'm going to like it in situations where it's an appropriate focal length.

I think my ground glass on the AVUS is off adjustment. When the focus is set for middle of the shot, the actual image gets focused closer to the back of my head.
Anyways. I set up a mirror, put the Graflex and AVUS on tripods, and used the K-30 to meter the shot. Arista EDU 100 ISO, cut to 6.5x9 from 4x5 film. Took two shots, F:8 at 3 seconds and F:5.6 at 3 seconds. This looks to be the 5.6 shot. I goofed and used the same fixer I had used on paper, so the negative is full of ugly white spots.

Thanks Tuco. My first:

This was checking out a new to me M-series 200mm. Shot on Tri-X in a KX.
Nice shot...I like how the tri x shows the texture of her fur. Good one.

Not used my film Pentaxes for a while-- but I took out my 1961-62 Rolleiflex 2.8F Planar loaded with a roll of 07/1991 dated Agfa Pan 100 ( NOT the 'APX' type) and downrated it to 64 ASA--- I tested the Rollei meter with the Incident Light attachment and even after all those years it was still accurate -- very good for a selenium cell meter !! I processed in Rodinal 1-50 for 14 mins at 20oC with only a couple of inversions of the Paterson Tanks once per minute and got some very good negatives that look almost like a 'Pyro Stain' developer -- I have done some traditional Darkroom prints to 16X12" and they are sharp with no grain. -these photos were all taken in Chelmsford, Essex, England 12 miles from my town of Brentwood. Aperture was f4 or f4.5 at 1/250th hand held.
Nice ones Pete. I especially like the second one. I wish I had the facilities to do my own darkroom prints....

More updated 500C/M files. Rattlesnake Ridge is a popular day hike around here. You can kind of see in the lower, right corner of the second shot a vantage point with people on it where the first shot was taken from.

WOW...Very impressive! Those clouds just really set off that amazing landscape. As great as those shots are, I can only imagine how awesome it must be in real life.

Thanks. Yes, it was a nice view in real life. And perhaps better if it was taken in color than BW too.

Tuco, those are stunning, and in my opinion lose nothing by not being in color.

Some old ones...archery lesson with Nikon FM, Nikkor 50mm f1.4 and BW400CN:



This should be a night shot with my Pentax K1000, hand held, always BW400CN:



Same thing here:



These pics made me discover that you don't really a tripod to shoot at night time with the right camera and lens.

This is the exterior of a pub, I think I used a Zorki 6 and a Jupiter 8 with BW400CN...it was night too.
