First roll in a long time

We are back in the U.S. for six months and the only film cameras I brought with me are the compact ones: New Mamiya 6 and FujiGF670. Being based in Colorado Springs, the scenic spots are numerous. I had a bit of free time the other day and found a wonderful spot that looks down on the Garden of the Gods so I loaded a roll of Neopan 100 Acros in the Mamiya 6 and had some fun. Then I had to replenish my chemicals and picked up a bottle of HC-110 for a painful $40! The final step was getting my scanner up and working, which included a call to Epson customer service and eventual discovery that my USB cable was fried.

1. 75mm


2. 150mm


3. 50mm

Great shots! I've only recently had the chance to try Acros100 (35mm) and I love it!

Nice but I would have underexpose at least 1 step, do you guess meter like I do?

I know it's all subjective but I really like the semi-high key look of these shots. In particular the girl's hair in the second shot is very convincing.

Quite often I guess, although I think this one was actually metered... I've gotta say though, I am a bit of a fan of the high-key look with Acros!

I kind of been wanting to try that GF670. I'm really liking the GSW690 but I think I could travel with a GF670 too and between the two focal lengths cover most of what I'd want to do with them.

100ACR has some really good deep blacks and also yields high contrast scenes nicely too. I think you have the exposure just right. Placing the baby's skin and sofa down a stop in value would indeed lose the high keyish look and leave your picture screaming for more deep and light tones to make it a well rounded BW since you'd have a flat, middle tone shot.

I love the GF670 but the only complaint I have is battery life, especially in cold weather. It runs out really fast, and I'm not sure why considering that a camera like this shouldn't be using much current at all.

That's good to know. GW690III's with a 90mm lens seem to be plentiful and require no battery. Something for me to think about anyway.

Acros seems to do very well in general, but I agree.
High key and Acros goes very well together.

I like it. It is replacing my Mamiya 7II I'm selling. I never bonded with that camera much and the Fuji is more rugged which I need for a travel and hiking camera. It's all mechanical too. No batteries.

Nice set of pictures you posted.
