Add St. Louis Area Group

Seaain - will you kindly add the St. Louis Area Group as one stop on the trip? I think it would be fun to make an outing out of using the camera (each of us take 2 shots or something).

Hey gang,

I got the best of my stuff up now. 14 keepers out of a roll of 24... not bad, eh? But it's only one roll out of three. Oh well. Fuji Superia 400, all taken with the Super Tak 55/1.8 that came attached to the SV.

Link to the set: Sightseeing Screwmount - a set on Flickr

The scans turned out really noisy/grainy, by the way. Is that grain I'm seeing, or low-res scan noise?
Great photos there; don't forget to add them to the group!

To my surprise, I received the package from Stevopedia today. That was quick! Everything is in good order (minus the half case as stated earlier) so I am planning a trip to San Francisco this weekend.
I really like the color shots that you posted Stevopedia, well done! I am probably going a different route and picking up some Plus-X for the day and Tri-X to push at night. Stay tuned!
Already!? Wow, that's fast! Nice work, USPS!

Have fun with the SV... it's truly a gem of a camera. And honestly, I would've liked to have done some black and white with it. I can't wait to see what you do with it!

Do yourself a favor and try a roll of Fuji Reala 100 for daylight shots outside. Love that stuff... I just posted this elsewhere and some here ghave seen it before, but this was taken with a 1957 AP with Reala... I love the colors.



This was also done with an AP and Reala

Seaain, isn't it amazing that you can get those kind of shots from a 52 year old camera?

Steveopedia, I agree that you nailed those exposures. Great shots.

Woohoo. Nice.

I assume I will be doing black and white, myself. Hey, what filter size is that lens, 49? Maybe I'll play with some of those for a change.

I'm 99% sure it's a 49mm filter. In fact I'm sure it is.

Funny how Pentax went from 49 mm screwmount lenses to 52 mm for K bayonet back to 49 mm for M through FA and then back to 52 for (at least) the kit DA lens...

If you are going to do some black and white, check out Elder's Mill Covered Bridge. It's only about 15 miles south of Athens.

Discover Georgia's Elder's Mill Covered Bridge

It might be a little farther but there's also Watson's Mill Bridge in Watson's Mill State Park.

Just some suggestions if you aren't familiar with some of the sights near you.

49mm for sure. 100% sure. Count on it.

Yes. Never ceases to amaze me. That birches shot is a scan of a print and is not corrected or changed in any way.

I actually took it as a test shot to use to sell the camera that took it. For a while I couldn't do it. Sell it that is. Then I got a third copy of the camera and had to let that one go. They are all capable of this kind of photo. That 55 f/1.8 is an exceedingly nice lens. At least as good as the 55mm f/2.2 that took that shot of the birches, and far better than the 35mm f/4 that took that panoramic...

Stevopedia: I can't stand the lack of quality from Walgreen's. I used to take some stuff there, but after switch to the local pro lab, I'll never go back!

Seaain: I know that I am not very active around here, but I am trustworthy and would love to be included in this. I live a few miles west of Indianapolis, IN and would love to escort this camera through downtown Indy. I live in an apartment with a TINY mailbox, but I would feel completely comfortable so long as the St. Louis folks shipped via USPS. Can I be next?

There isn't a pro lab that I know of nearby, so that option unfortunately isn't open to me. Or else I would have taken my film there

(P.S. Does anyone know of any pro labs in the Baltimore metro area?)

Here is a Post

Here is a link to a post on photo.net about labs in Baltimore:

Good lab in Baltimore? - Photo.net Film and Processing Forum

Looks like Techlab is a good choice.
