I took the SWC for a walk in the woods today. These aren't photos of anything exciting, but I'm still feeling my way with it. XP2 @400, HC-110, X1 scans:

Just found 2 sets of negs this evening... old stuff from the early 90's - didn't know I even had these. They were tucked away in a photo album away from my "known" negatives. Many blasts from the past but a couple of my favs of the find here. Both would have been shot on the old Nikkormat with Nikkor 50mm. The first (of my sister) is on 5063 (old Kodak Safety designation - I'm not sure what it is... a Tri-X isn't it?), the 2nd (of my college girlfriend) on 5052 TMax. Twas a nice evening of treasure finding.

Back to XP2 @200 in Rodinal 1+100, which gives the nicest results but takes longer. F6, 28-300, X1 scans:

First roll back from the Speed Graphic. Guess who forgot to remove the dark slide1 for all but 2 shots?

1. Not entirely true. I'm pretty sure a few shots I remembered to remove the dark slide but forgot to open the other shutter before shooting.



Graflex Pacemaker Speed Graphic 2" x 3" (with Graflex "23" rollfilm back).
Kodak Ektar 101mm f4.5.
Fomapan 200 Creative.

Reminds me of the second roll of film I shot with my pentax 645. I hadn't pushed the film holder quite back in right... shot the whole roll of film, but it didn't advance it, lost the whole roll, was rushing at a conference and really bodged it up.

Nice shot, looks sharp!

I at least got a few shots out of the roll. I shot a parade with the Takumar/6x7 90mm leaf-shutter once, and didn't notice that I had knocked the switch on the bottom to "Special" mode at some point earlier.

I want to check the rangefinder calibration, as I think I should have had more of the foreground in focus than I do. (Or maybe the film isn't being held flat in one spot? I dunno.) But overall I'm happy. Now I'm almost wishing I had held out for a 4x5 model though.

Foreground looks super sharp except in the corners, certainly within reasonable dof. I'm guessing unless you had it on a tripod, it wasn't too stopped down.

It's that one post in the middle that's bothering me. It should be sharper than it is. Still, it's nothing too serious.

And yes, handheld and therefore probably around f5.6. It's rare for me to use a tripod unless I'm planning what I'm shooting in advance, which is partially why I gravitate towards faster films with my medium format stuff.

I don't know what you focused on, but on the negative/scan it's the "Now Open" sign over the door that appears sharpest.

I'd say the 'bothersome' post is consistent with expected dof sharpness on fast (& grainy) film.
