i just got some black and white 200 iso film for my pentcon 6tl.it's made in the czech republic.has anybody heard anything about it? the price was right. it's called arista.edu ultra.
If I'm not mistaken it's re-branded Fomepan for Freestyle Photo (they do a lot of re-branded film at very good prices - I have the legacy pro 100 and 400 currently at home for my 35 mm cameras it's Fuji Acros 100 and Neopan 400 at a lower price. I've not used Fomepans so can't comment on what to expect, however the only re-branded film they offer in 120 is the Arista so it's not really a choice (if you shoot 35 as well the Arista Premium 100 and 400 are re-branded Plus-x and Tri-x
The Arista EDU's are all Fomepan
The Legacy Pro's are all Fuji
Unfortunately there are no Re-Brand Colour Slide or Neg (it would be nice to see re-branded Velvia)
It would also be nice if they offered the premium and legacy in 120

That should be excellent film - I've been wanting the ISO 200 in 120 size - same film as the Fomapan 200 which has a good rep.

Rather nice colours Colton, especially in that last shot with the leaves contrasting with the sky.

Greetings and a Happy New Year to All! A busy fall and Christmas season had me with my singer's hat on and not as much time for photography and the forum as I might have liked, reducing me to "lurker" status - haven't had much chance to post anything. That being said, I've been enjoying everyone else's work in this thread. I have a few shots from the late fall that I'll try and post in the next couple weeks. In the meanwhile, I found myself in Gettysburg, PA on New Year's Eve and managed to shoot a roll of Reala 100 with my SuperProgram and M50 f2 lens:

Colton, glad you enjoyed the shots of Gettysburg. My kid sister went to college there. It's also my wife's home town and my in-laws still live there. Despite having been traveling there for over 20 years, this was my first visit to Little Round Top, although I've driven around to some of the other battlefield sites (but never with a camera - go figure).

Best,
Kevin

Thanks for sharing those Kevin, been too long since I was there, to see results of park service efforts to restore field to apperance during battle is astounding.
Have heard some of those gun tubes that form Hazzlet's battery are original.

Kevin, excellent shots, maybe it was the sequencing or whatever, but the first shot in each of your posts I find exceptionally sharp and 3-D. And it brings back memories of 40 years ago (I tend to have a memory for terrain, and often dream about places) when we visited.

Ferrania 100, Yashica T4

That particular day I'd planned to shoot my Retina IIa exclusively - sadly, she jammed half way through a frame advance and I haven't managed to free her up yet. I had a few years of good service, but still it is sad: this Retina was maybe my favorite 35mm camera. Luckily I had my other film camera in the bag (what? YOU don't carry 2 film cameras on a daily basis ), this T4... so I finished the roll of Ferrania and rolled in the just started Foma 200 from the Retina - that's still in the T4, I have 6 shots left.

I, too, am impressed with how things have changed over the years, and largely for the better.

Jussi, I appreciate the compliment. I'm consistently amazed by the shots I get with the M50 f2. I have "better" 50mm lenses (A50 f1.7, FA 50 f1.4), but I always seem to like what I get with M50.

Sorry to hear about your Retina IIa. I have one that I picked up on Craig's List a year ago, but I haven't shot it much. Based on your endorsement, I may have to make more of an effort. Its viewfinder is a little foggy and I have a hard time focusing it. Also, (unlike you) I don't do so well eyeballing exposures so I have to use my dad's old Weston meter (which works, but I don't have a lot of experience with it). Hope you're able to resurrect it.

Best to all,
Kevin

Thanks Kevin - when I first started with folding cameras I was petrified about exposure - funny enough worried about over exposing things when the opposite is usual. But it was liberating, one realizes just how many approaches there are to 'correct' exposure - and focus, LOL!

Fearview - those are some awesome shots - come forth with the info! Film, camera, and what is that wild stadium?

Jussi, there is a profound irony in your post above. I underexposed the first roll I ran through the Retina IIa so badly that it came back blank <g>.

@Fearview - I'll second Nesster's comment - great photographs! I'd love to know the details of them as well.

Best,
Kevin
