That's interesting and some pretty nice results. But what begs the question is why you'd attempt using such and expired developer?

I have joined the meterless club for 35mm, having decided that I shoot MF and LF quite happily without a meter in the camera, so why not simplify things for 35mm? (I also have to dispose of lots of gear so that it won't be a problem for my wife when the leukemia comes back.) So I have done a deal with my enabler, the wonderful Jean at Camtec in Montreal, to reduce all my Leica gear to a 1963 M2 and silver 35 Lux, 50 Lux and 90 Summarit. The M2 arrived today, so I put a roll of Tri-X through it:

Love these shots...very nice.

Sending positive thoughts that the leukemia doesn't come back.

Nice. Yeah, I can typically estimate up to about 5 stops of conditions departing from a noon exposure on a sunny day when I shoot meter-less now. I use the Sunny 11 rule where I live and to make sure I get enough shadow detail because my scanner just doesn't reach as far into the blacks as what is captured on the negative.

And since I often compress my highlights during development anyway I don't have to worry about pushing up my high values up in to no texture area of white with that increased exposure because I'm getting so much more of those high values.

Took my Fuji GSW690III to a mud and muck event last fall. I keep framing a little too high with this rangefinder when I'm in close for some reason. But that's part of learning new gear I guess.

Canon AE-1.
Canon nFD 70-210mm f4.
Fuji Neopan 400 pushed to 1600.



Canon AE-1.
Tamron Adaptall-2 28mm f2.5.
Fuji Neopan 400 pushed to 1600.

That last photo from a series taken as part of a friend's birthday. We played Twister on the subway (because why not?) and I discovered that the right-angle viewer from a Spotmatic will fit nicely on an AE-1.

Thanks, both. On the second shot: I was just lucky enough to have a longer lens that day. I've spotted that bird a few times, but prior never had anything that let me get close enough for a good shot.

My only disappointment is that the shot of it taking off to catch some small rodent didn't turn out. I got startled when it suddenly moved and shook the camera everywhere.

right-angle viewer from a Spotmatic
I've been thinking about picking up one of those. I'm getting too old to roll around on the floor. Does it show the whole viewfinder area without too much loss of brightness?

It doesn't reduce the brightness in any way. These ASAHI branded finders are amazing. I use one with my Spotmatic F and the only disadvantage is that the view is not laterally correct (meaning it shows viewfinder horizontally mirrored, but vertically correct) so takes little getting used to, but its a minor price to pay for the convenience
