Those wide angle shots look very nice. I could have fun with an M20, but unfortunately they are pricey and I can't afford one right now either. I think I will be saving up for a scanner soon. Might need to create a thread for some suggestions.

Here is a shot I wasn't too sure of at first, couldn't figure out whether it needed a crop or not. Despite what others have said, I find the DA35 to perform well in macro or 'close up' situations, the image below is uncropped:

Super Program, DA35 macro Ltd, Kodak ultramax 400


In other news, a local department store near me (Kmart) has decided to sell all their remaining film stocks cheaply. On Wednesday I picked up 10 rolls of kodak bw400cn for $4 each, by far the cheapest I have seen locally. The normal price was $10/roll. I also found some extremely cheap ($1/roll) colour 400 film to try. It might be rubbish, but I'm hoping for some interesting colours, perhaps like Javier's 99cent film

Today marks the 30th anniversary of the May 18, 1980 eruption of Mt. St. Helens...
I was born 4 days before it happened and so of course, have no recollection of the event. It's remarkable how powerful nature can be. Thanks for posting these!

Actually, I'm with you on that. Not only is it dramatic, but it hides the egg someone threw on the sign.

Here is someone else who likes that bargain camera Olympus Trip 35 .

I've had good luck with the Olympus XA2, which now goes for about $19, even on cheap drugstore film.

The sky is very interesting there. Is that a cloud or smoke?

A couple from the '33 Ikomat 520 - a 6x4.5 folder with a 7cm f/3.5 Tessar, uncoated of course - and Fuji ACROS 100 developed in Fomadon Excel (Xtol).

Thanks! It's cloud, and no it's not photoshopped. All I did with this shot was a bit of levels adjustment and some noise reduction.

And one of my pictures just got featured on the Redbubble homepage! But it's a digital image so I won't post it here.

Again with the Ikomat, I did have a Retina with color film with me - though I thought it was the Bessa - so only shot b&w. And really, I should have gone with the P645. Though that's harder to deal with with two dogs in tow. This one's with a red filter.

Here's a few from my latest roll. I wasn't happy with the result of Kentemere 100 normal developing in rodinal so I tried stand developing it instead. This on the other hand I am fairly pleased with. All shot with the KX.

K28/3.5 wide open



Cambron 18-28 @ 18mm and f/11




K35/3.5 @ f/8




K35/3.5 @ f/5.6




Agnostic: The thread moved forward before I had time to comment on your pics on the previous page, really nice photos all of them. I seem to like most of what you put forward so keep em' coming.

As an aside, what is it with people needing to carve initials into trees, stone, etc.?
