Film gear on film

It's funny that most of the gear porn shown in this thread is of old analog gear. But hey, I also like old analog gear:

Three Zeiss folders:


Two of my older Pentax 6x7s:


The Mamiya C330 Professional with the Mamiya-Sekor 135mm F4.5 lens (black version with Seiko shutter):


And a Jobo tank used to develop two rolls of 35 mm film (on two spools) or two rolls of 120 film (on one spool) in the Jobo ATL-1500 film processor:


All the above images taken with the Pentax Spotmatic F and Super-Takumar 85mm F1.9

and below

An old Zenit-B - taken with the Pentax 67 II and the 165mm F4.0 LS lens:


All the above gear is used frequently ...

Analog really is something different and it is quite a collection you have.

Several months ago I posted a shot containing a digital camera wearing an old lens and was quickly chided as one of many who wrongly chose to post digital in an analog thread inside the forum section for film cameras so I have since refrained.

Some great cameras and equipment there though LaHo

Thank you, Thomas. I have gone nearly full circle and mostly shoot film these days. This is but at small portion of my gear.

Thanks. Well, it's true that this is a thread in the forum section for film, but there should still be some leeway, I think. What I especially like about film gear, though, is the great variety: folders, TLRs, rangefinders, box cameras and so on in addition to regular SLRs.

I am a true Pentax fan at heart and have some of the old Spotmatics with a bunch of Takumars, some K-mount SLRs from the 70'ies, 80'ies and 90'ies with a fair collection of K-, M- and A-series lenses to go, a good collection of 6x7 gear and 645N and N II with the appropriate A and FA lenses. However, I have a weak spot for the Mamiya C330 - the square negative, the waist-level viewfinder and bellows focusing. All great fun.

That makes two of us

Really enjoy experimenting with some of the older 6x9 box cameras these days

I going to take this one out for spin. The only Canon SLR gear that I am going to keep with with a couple of lenses. I sold the F-1 and some other bodies. (The Canonets are also going to see some film action.)

Quick (silly) question here. I picked up a Canon BT-55 hood at a swap for 1€ for the 50/1.4, but it should have been a BS-55 hood according to Web site. The BT-55 is for a 100mm or 135mm apparently. If I use this hood on the 50/1.4, do you think that it will vignette "too" much? I see no real difference through the OVF ... maybe a few shots of this hood "on" and a few "off" for funnies ... wadda ya think ?!

I don't really think so. This entire site is comprised almost exclusively of digital photographic photos and subjects, save for this little film corner. I don't think it's unreasonable to keep the "digital gear p0rn" to the countless other thread topics.

Just checked, and it looks like my FD 50/1.8 has a BT-55 paired with it. I rarely use the lens as I'm not much of a fan of it, but the few photos I've taken with it and posted suggest that there's probably nothing to worry too much about.

Well... I was looking and according to the FTB viewfinder specs, you are not seeing 6% of the whole image... so in that 6% might be the vignetting... am I too drunk?

Back when Pentax was my thing. I've still got an MX and M50/f1.4, but the rest is gone
