Nice!

If the dog could talk I'm sure it's telling you to bugger off.

Praktica BX20, Flektogon 35mm f2.4, XP2+







Some people say this lens is not at the height of its reputation.
Nice series! Like the poster shot!

I just received three rolls of Lomo Lady Grey developed by Ilford Lab and they are much better than XP2+ IMO.

These are the shots made with my "new" Praktica BC3, Pentacon 50mm f1.8, Flektogon and an unknown but I assume oriental 135mm f2.8 (surely not a Pentacon 135/2.8):



Flek wide open:





Unknown 135mm:



Self portrait with 50mm at f1.8:



With the Flek my nose gets longer:



Another pic of my beloved Gibson Country & Western.



In conclusion I like this new film, they say it's Tmax but it looks more grainy to me, and I like Praktica Bs too, they take good pics...as they are somewhat similar to Pentaxes in size and ergonomics I would recommend one if it's in working conditions.

Lady Grey is T-Max 400, yes. I've used it a bit in 135 format, it's a nice film.

These shots are different from what I get from Tmax 400, more grainy and contrast...perhaps it's just a matter of development?

On the other side Ilford developed for me a roll of Tmax I shot with my LX, perhaps I should post for comparison, but the D type on the other page was taken on "proper" Tmax.

Really? I mostly shoot TMax400 and it doesn't look anything like this... Is it actually the same film?

What's the DX barcode number on the film cassette? That will identify what it is and whether Lomography have switched film stocks, as they have with other of their films in the past.

When I go home I'll check it out, perhaps it's just the way Ilfordlab develops the film.

Here some shots with "official" Tmax400 taken with my LX, unfortunately just cars as they were taken in a museum, also developed by Ilfordlab.

Down here there is a shot taken with Tmax100 I developed myself at home.

Hmmmm, that doesn't look anything like my TMax400 results either If anything I would have picked that as one of the C41 b&w's...

This is more or less what I've come to expect.

Results will depend on exposure, development, scanning and post-processing.

In the EU the lady grey card board boxes have 'made in US' on them, and the pink dye sensation base and the Kodak DX code...

The Lomo sales assistant asked if I developed at home and then said they were Tmax...

But that could vary from day to day, box to box.

The last two three packs won't load in my SP either the plastic spool is just out of tolerance.

So not buying any more one can still get over the counter variety here.

The signature is Tmax400 as well.

This is the label on the back of the package,I think the shots are truthful to the images on it.

Regarding my pics, the Ducati was taken on Tmax100 and I developed it at home with Tmax developer, it was the first film I developed without much trouble.

I might find out other Tmax shots for comparison, but I suspect Ilfordlab develops with its own products.

I personally like the look of this film, Tmax or not.

A gov't building near my place. Yashica Mat 124, Rollei Retro 80s dev'd with Rodinal 1:25. I have been using 1:50 for ever with this film, but the results at 1:25 are quite nice to my eyes.
