On Sunday I bought one of these:



It is a 6x7 120 film shooting National Graflex Series II from somewhere between 1934 and '41, with a Bausch & Lomb Tessar 1c 75mm f/3.5 lens. So I put some Neopan 400 in it, and though not many came out (mainly due to operator error!) here are the results. HC-110, Epson 4490











Very interesting to see! And impressive results. Great light (how do you measure?). The one from Brookdale Park looks almost like you used a yellow filter, really good balance of exposure. Somehow the camera looks more modern, advanced, than it is (maybe it is the lens?). Great work. Regards

Thanks all, I was so excited to find one of these National Graflexes in working order! I really have no yen for the latest digital, and I've nearly got 'one of each' more modern 35mm cameras

The Tessar does show more swirl than I expected. And I kept forgetting to stop it back down after opening it to focus. I didn't use a meter - in full sun I used 1/500 @f/11, the ice cream truck was at f/5.6 or so, and the woods + rose were wide open. (The woods should have been at 5.6 and the rose at 11)

..then it surprises me, that they are not both white outs? They donīt look two or four stops off.

I agree, Nesster -- Neopan Acros 100 is an awesome film! I experimented with FOMA FomaPan 400 this weekend. A little too steep of a curve for my tastes, but it is always fun to experiment

A minor point. Nester didn't shoot 100ACR. It was Neopan 400

I will correct it ASAP. I think I have some in the drawer and will dremel its bottom to better fit the camera.

Amazing shades of grey! You really got that machine working for you Tuco (M7II or 6X7?).


Here is one from southern morocco, taken in a place they still call the woods with LX, SMC A 2/50, TMY400.
