Hey old friend, it's great to see you back here. Good to see that you're shooting film again. And very cool photo!
Hey Colton! Great to see you too I've enjoyed checking out your photos recently, great to see that you're still shooting film too.

I can't see any of your images. I see your post and any text, but no images.
Is it something on my end?

Nope, hosting issue. Looking into it.

Pentax ME Super with leaking seals, SMC 28F2.8 with Very Expired UltraMax 400....This ME Super was sitting in my closet for well past 10 years with a new roll of film in it that I never shot. Discovered it while cleaning out my camera closet

Here is the camera. Funny thing is, I remember taping it up to see if it would seal to make sure it did not have another issue; and well, I guess it does. Seems like yesterday but It has been at least 10 years in the closet. So I took it out last week.

Funky light leaks @jgredline, the film seems good otherwise though! What's your plans with that ME Super now?

Did a walk around in the city after work last week. Must be the first time in say, 7 years, that I have exposed, developed and then scanned a roll all within the same week.





Both are expired Tri-X exposed at 800 and developed for 1600 in ID-11 1+1.
Taken with LX and A 50/1.2.
Another thing I am having to re-learn is the development aspect. It's fun though

Now that is scary. The tape looks like it should have done a fine job.
I bought an ME Super from a charity shop recently and replaced the light seals from a set bought online, now I'm worried. I shone a torch around the door on the first shot to show up leaks too.
I've a roll of Ektar 100 in it and waiting for the sun to shine a bit before I start shooting. Oh well, we will see in a couple of months or so.

Yeah, I'm well pleased with it. It's a bit kludgy to use. The film advance and focus are really stiff, and the rangefinder is a bit difficult to make out, so I estimate distance instead of relying on it. Film loading is weird too, you have to slide off the back and bottom plate. I just put a roll of Tmax through it, but haven't taken it down for developing yet.

I decided to send it to Home-Pentaxs
While the camera itself is not really worth anything, it is too me. I have some good quality lenses for it.
Nice black and whites by the way.
