You can see the freaking details in the lights on the ceiling! My scanner only outputs 8 bit files too!
And you're computer's graphics card is no doubt 8 bit per channel too.

True, but that wouldn't have any effect on what's in the file. I was just saying that even with only 255 levels there is a lot left in the file. A 16 or 14 bit file would likely have even finer gradations and show that there is a lot of range on the film; true with any film/developer.

Also, if it wasn't clear, that was a single image. I only moved the gray level slider from near black, 1.00, and then near white and took a snapshot at each setting. Not 3 different scans.

Wahkeena Falls

Caltar II-N 90/6.8, Ektar 100 (120 6x7)

From the first roll of 120 color film I tried with the Chamonix view camera. This was my first field outing and I am not very happy with the composition here. I should have moved a little further back and shifted a little to the left. There was also the issue of it starting to rain and me without an umbrella or a cover for the camera. Making haste is not in one's best interest with this sort of tool.

(The Ektar 100 does a pretty nice job here, eh?)

I think that you have a winner with this camera. A little bit of getting used to is probably all it takes for getting some stunning photos.
Of course I would probably try some B&W landscape with a "view" next

Cheers,

Luc

You mean something like this:

Vista House and Crown Point on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

One of better "views" in my neck of the woods!

Right, you need to give some space for this puppy to do its magic.

Cheers,

Steve, I think you're progressing very well indeed, and I admit to a pang or two of jealousy - I look forward to the day when I too can take the step you've taken. Into REAL photography, that is. LOL.
In case you'd like to see the advice given around a century ago, about cameras and movements and such, Google books has a few old camera books here:
Art Books
I've been browsing there and these are literally classic



Jason, what IS that in the second pic - I love the photo!

I forget now, have I presented my 1937 Certo Super Sport Dolly with its 2.8 Xenar? I must have, but here it is again.... All but the last are 100TMX in Tmax developer, the last is Delta 100 in D76.

Nesster, you've got an impressive collection of old cameras! Do you have any group shots of them all together?

What is that in the last shot?

That is pretty amazing! I'd be fibbing if I said I wasn't jealous. I think the tallest lookout we have here in Indiana is about 100ft .

Thanks... yeah, I seem to have accumulated a few, but I do use each one. And I'm especially taken with old folders... here's most of them, or at least most of the 120 size ones.



The last shot I think is the foundation of a fire observation tower, or perhaps some sort of winch set up - it's next to an old quarry.

Lovely collection. I could definitely see getting into those.

Jussi, thanks for the comment on my photo, and I do love your collection of folders. The Dolly looks awesome. Soon I will be playing with my late Grandmothers Kodak six-16 folder - just last week I got the optics cleaned and some parts restored, I just need to pick it up from the shop.

My earlier picture is of a Banksia flower, a type of native Australian small tree/bush. They are quite unique, especially the flowers. Think of something a little bit like a Protea.

I also need to mention that the other shots in this thread recently have been excellent. I look forward to reading through in the mornings. I still need to work on my own contributions though!

Here's some more with the Spotmatic and Super Tak 50:
Spotmatic SP, Super Takumar 50 f/1.4, Kodak ektar100
