I problem is I want an old MF camera, but feel like I shouldn't spend the money, so I buy one that's cheap, and then three other cheap ones one by one because they're all in crap condition. I end up spending the money for one good one, but don't end up with one good one

I have a few very mint condition SLR's that I paid more than they where likely worth, but they have been worth every penny to ''me'' because I use them and they bring me great joy. As an example. I bought an SP2 that was in 100% mint condition. The fellow that sold it to me said it had less than 4 rolls shot through it. Weather this is true or not is another story, but when I got it, it was still in the box. even though it was like new, I still sent it to Eric for servicing. All n all including Eric's bill, I paid nearly $500.00 for it....Crazy? Perhaps, but the joy it brings me, is worth every penny. It exposes spot on and the results are great. The only thing that is bad about it, is the fellow behind the view finder.

My SP2 is not quite the same -- the flash mount fell off and the mirror sticks! ;D

$500 is crazy though

I like it, Mike!
The Centuria film looks very smooth grained.
Do you recall the exposure time on that shot?

I'll second that - very nice exposure Mike. I really like that Centuria DNP. I'm a little jealous of you and Dadi Luna <sp?>. Is it rebadged something or other that we might find here in the States?

Best,
Kevin

I didn't have luck (or rather my technique left me wanting) for the set I shot at the Met, using the ES-II. I rated Foma 400 at 800, which it wasn't happy doing. However the results seem atmospheric and vintage-y to me.

Nice shot, Nesster. You're right about the "vintage" feel. Have to admit that when I was reading your text and you said the "Met", my singer's brain went to Lincoln Center <g>. Chuckled to myself when I saw the image and realized you were talking about the art museum. In any event, I'm jealous of your proximity to both.

Haven't pushed or pulled film myself yet. I've been reluctant to do so 1)because I'm still feeling my way around exposure at rated ISOs and 2) I don't do my own processing <yet> so there's the added expense of having the lab do it. Are the results similar if you push Tri-X the same way? Really enjoyed the roll of Ilford 3200 I shot, but just haven't felt the need for that kind of speed of late. That being said, the grain looked similar to what you're getting here.

Happy New Year,
Kevin

Kevin, Happy New Year to you too. I think with more 'regular' ASA400 film the push to 800 is not a big deal, and the results better than with the Foma. From what I've read and see for myself, the Foma 400 really is more like Foma 320 and it doesn't push well.

Kodak, Ilford and Fuji's development instructions all say that develop 800 the same as 400, so shooting a roll at 800 won't make any difference to the development.

From what I've read, Foma 400 has an actual speed of 160 on something like Rodinal and maybe 250 on a fast developer. But the people who said that like to be conservative :P HP5 and 400TX would probably be just fine at 800.
