You reuse the Xtol developer, Nesster? How is that working out? What are the rules when you do that?
I'm just using 1 liter for 12 films - I mark the bottle per. I do the same with D76 though I don't get as many rolls, 10 more like it.

In the past, 30 years ago, I had D76 in a gallon jug and had the replenisher. That worked well.

To use Xtol perpetually, you use a gallon jug + small bottles of the same stuff. For each film you develop you put in 70 ml of new, and discard the equivalent from the developing tank. Or something like that - I may be confusing my numbers with Defender 777 which sounds like a really good developer...

Wow, mer, I sure hope you asked her before posting that! It's a lovely shot, though as a photograph I think I prefer the next one. She's very genuine in front of the camera in a way few people are.

I always suspected I was being lied to when people said Trix is ok at 3200, but I guess not! Less grainy than my Delta 3200 shots...

jzietman, I really like the last two shots of your set. Great atmosphere.

Ooh, I'm very excited today, I got my CLAd Braun Gloria in the mail and went through two rolls of neutral contrasty 160iso colour film (Fuji & Kodak). It's the first day with sunshine and any blue sky visible in over a month too! The snow looks lovely today. It'll be a while before I'll actually see how the photos came out though.

@Mer - thank you, and the three you posted are very good indeed, lovely grain - and I like the toning on the kissy lips.

@ EyeSpy - yes, the Diacord has some real nice attributes. I really like the lens, it is contrasty and sharp. Good luck!

@ jzietman - I like these, on these samples the HP5 does it for me over Tri-X - the Tri-X is a bit too contrasty for me. Of course other people will have different opinions

That's a nice shot! I love photos of grime, dirt, alleys and backways.

Thanks guys!

The above shots were all slightly tweaked in Lightroom after scanning, so they're a bit more contrasty than they originally were. But HP5 @ 400 is definitely (and sensibly) less contrasty than Tri-X @ 3200. I'm very pleased with what the pushed Tri-X can do, though. Got all the info I needed at Push it; push it real good. - Rangefinderforum.com.

@jzietman...I would have changed the order of the first three to #2, #1, #3...

Hello guys,

Fantastic shots in the thread, it's really a great learning experience. Mer, Jzietman, Nesster, Agnostic - I love your photos.

Two weeks ago I took my ME Super at a concert. It was the first experience of this kind, so I'd tought I'd better take my fastest lens with me (M 50/1.4), together with some "flexible" ISO 400 film (Fuji Pro 400 H).

Here are my best results:

Two weeks ago I took my ME Super at a concert. It was the first experience of this kind, so I'd tought I'd better take my fastest lens with me (M 50/1.5), together with some "flexible" ISO 400 film (Fuji Pro 400 H).

Thanks! Your first shot is nice but I find it a little wide. I think a fast telelens would have helped to get in a bit closer. On the other hand a 135/2.8 might have been too slow for 400 iso.

@Agnostic: Yup, I thought of a 85/1.4, but i'm not sure there is such a lens for Pentax. (I wouldn't have the money for it, anyway!) So maybe next time my Tak 105/2.8 would do the job if fitted with some Fuji Pro800Z.

(Btw... is there anyone on this thread who tried Fuji's 800Z?)

Then... your "ghost" shot is nothing but amazing! I love how its shadow projects on the window. The richness of tones is great. The horizontal strip cutting the frame adds (r'n'r) rhythm. And the mood... uh-oh!
