Thanks all for the nice comments on the macro shots!

Very nice picture ! btw, what is the "life size converter ?"
Aurele the “life size converter” is similar to a teleconverter, except it fits into the front of the lens and doubles the magnification from .5x to 1x. (Life size) However the focal length and aperture are not affected, like they are with a teleconverter.

One more from earlier this spring. This popped up and bloomed for about 3 days and that was it. I'm not sure what it is. Ektar 100 through the Vivitar 100mm macro lens.

Very nice. I'm pretty sure that's a crocus (Crocus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). These are usually the first to blume here in southern Maryland. As I recall, they are also short-lived.

That does appear to be the answer. Thank you!

...and that, my friend is why Ferrania is worth shooting!

Outstanding shot, Jussi!

Yes, true...and thank you.

But, we have Colorplus now, another film people love to hate, or hate to love. I've gotten batches from a couple of different sources (B&H for this last batch) that have cartridges marked Kodacolor inside.

Kodak Colorplus 200, Zuiko 28/3.5, OM2n

here are a few shots from my first roll of Lomography x-tungsten 64iso. i tried shooting with this metered at 64-100 and still the results were slightly overexposed. i will shoot the next roll at 200 if im in direct sunlight. also i boosted the saturation a bit because i like the look of it. it gives the pictures the blueish tones i was expecting to get without any post processing. anyway interesting film for sure.

I like the look of these. I have some Lomography 100 colour film waiting to be used. Was the overexposure due to inaccurately indicated film speed or perhaps you shutter speeds are slower than they ought to be?

i honestly have no idea about the overexposure. this was my first time using any film with an iso below 200. i though 64iso meant i could shoot in direct sunlight easily. but also tungsten film is a bit different than normal color film. so my answer... i dont know. haha.

I've been using a 100 ISO (Ektar) the last couple of days in bright Madrid sunlight & I've found I still need a 3-stop ND filter if I want to have the larger apertures (f/2 and below) available for shallow DoF shots.

Colorplus/Kodacolor 200, OM2n, Zuiko 28/2.5






And a close up with the 28/3.5. The light, like the humidity, was everywhere: it was cloudy and sunny and hot all at the same time.
