A few from my Ricoh KR-5 Super ( purchased for $6 at goodwill with a 50mm lens, and a 2X TC ) I had my RMC Tokina 28mm f2.8 mounted on it. It amazed me just how wide 28mm is on full frame. This is Fuji 200 speed film i believe, nothing fancy, processed at Walgreens, lol



I love the warm colors and the long shadows. Thanks for sharing!

My opinion is that weather these photos got placed in this thread or in another thread would not matter so long as they where in the ''film'' section where they would get appreciated for what they are...In the main Photo section most are digital and are simply different.. Not better, not worse, but different..Unfortunately many DSLR only folks can't appreciate the natural look of film...This is one reason for this thread...It is NOT my thread, but ''OUR'', (those who participate in this thread), I just started it....
Thanks jgredline, I've actually rescanned all the images, much better job this time imho. Originally they were done at 720dpi at 100% but I maxed the scanner at 2400dpi hardware resolution then re-sized, noticeable difference and worth the effort.

Yes, they look much richer in color. In fact quite good for 400 speed film...

Kodak ULTRA MAX 400...I wish some ladies would get a clue that too much make up is no good.

Here are my current contributions. I only started getting back into film a little before Christmas and have only gone through a few rolls so far.

1951 Aires Reflex YII
Twin Lens Reflex

Came from this guy, rescued from a box of junk cameras...cost me all of about $3:




Requires a squirt of lighter fluid into the shutter mechanism every time I take it out to use it.

I really like the train station picture. It has such a nostalgic feel to it. My father-in-law was a station master for a time in his life and the old station he maintained didn't look a whole lot different than that one; although on a different continent. They just seem so much more civilized when compared to modern airport terminals.

Good bargain on the TLR, too!

Kodak Ektar 100, SMC-Takumar 105/2.8, ES-II

First roll of Ektar, I'm not in love. Perhaps it's the combo with the ES II, maybe it's the CVS photo cd. Oh well, I have another two rolls, and spring's coming...

I agree! pspentax - The first w/woman and child, and the last with the white and blue sky, awe!

Mike, that's really good stuff. I love these truly old cameras.

Venturi - you have great tone. B&W doesn't NEED the full range from black to total white, the photo lives in the mid tones. And nice composition too.

Javier, *sigh* yes, but who are we to say

Old cameras? How does about 80 years old strike you?








All taken using a Kodak #2 Cartridge Hawkeye Brownie Model C (produced between 1926 and 1932 in Canada) shooting Fujichrome Velvia 100. These were truly simple cameras: no focus adjustment possible; no exposure adjustments possible; framing damned near impossible.....the photo either comes out alright or it doesn't.

I don't have a photo of just that camera by itself, but you can see it here at the feet of the tripod mounting my Yashica D TLR:




Shoots 6cm x 9cm honking huge-assed negatives, giving a mere eight exposures on a roll of 120 medium format film.

I highly encourage anyone wishing for a completely different photographic experience to scrounge up some old box camera.

These old ones are fun and a good time - much better to play with than the Holgas etc. (Though, daughter just got herself a Holga...)

I just had my first ever roll of film developped, and the results are very satisfying I must say One of the pictures came out very well that I thought it would warrant itself a place in this thread. I was testing how to set the camera with direct sunlight, here's the result:


Pentax ME with 28mm lens.

More to come in the 'post your photos!' section.

Sounds like a fancy pinhole camera.
