These are 3 (the only 3) salvaged shots from a VERY old roll of undeveloped HP5 safety film nearly fused to the inside of a Solida III I picked up a couple weeks ago. Somewhere in the UK. I wish the others hadn't been completely fogged, but three is better than none. Quite a bit of fun scanning these in, which coincidentally I did in Silverfast as color-neg using the Ektar100 preset... Seemed to give me better detail in this case.

Pretty neat. Anybody good at identifying the year of some of those cars might narrow the time frame.

Yep or the cameras. Late 60's early 70's is my guess.

Pretty sure I see some FSU rangefinders in upper right, next to the black (what looks to be) stereoscopic camera of some kind. Looks like there's a Zorki and a later model FED perhaps. I think those TLRs on the other side are Flexarets. Who's better at this??

That's awesome. Never been up in a balloon. Always wanted to. My folks took my grandfather up a few years back. Something he'd always dreamed of doing but had never made it happen. Never seen him smile that much.

Thanks. I haven't either. But that balloon ride service has a lot of flights this time of year.

They're definitely not Flexarets. There are two round dials next to the lenses, similar to the shutter and aperture dials on Yashicamats and post-war Rolleiflexes, that were never present on any of the Flexarets. (I'd guess Yashica before Rollei, as the dials look to be completely chrome.)

And those are definitely some FSU camers on the right. Pretty sure that's one of the Zorki-based m39 Zenits sitting on top of either a second version FED 4 or a FED-5.

Edit: There's an Exa 1a or 1b on the shelf right below the leftmost TLR, and I think the black SLR on the right shelf is an Olympic logo Zenit. Checking sovietcams.com suggests that it was some of the EM and TTL models that had both black finish and the logo on the prism. The glare across the front of the prism housing makes it difficult to tell which of the two it is, but I'd say that would suggest late-70s as the earliest date for the photo.

Edit the 2nd: The black one in the middle hanging below the light meters is possibly either an early model 35mm Minox or, given the other FSU cameras, a Kiev-35A. If it's a Kiev that would push the photo into the mid-80s, while Minox would still leave the '70s as an option.

I knew someone was better at this.

It was that or actually do some PP on photos that I've been avoiding.

And one final update: the black one beside the Minox/Kiev was driving me crazy, as I knew it was familiar. It's a Lomo LC-A, which would be '83 at the earliest.

Three shots from my last photoshoot. It was to get promo shots for my record label's shirt mainly (Tridroid Records).

The shots certainly show off the tee shirt well.
