I still have my first "real" camera, here she is, with the original 55mm F2.2 lens it came with.




And a few shots taken with it years ago, and scanned on a flatbed scanner I had.

This is the reason I bought the camera in the first place, to take photos of fish, since I am a catch and release guy.





My best friend and I in the EARLY 80's, I am on the left.

Thanks Colton, I'm finding I really like that lens on both film and digital, almost as much as the FA 43. Speaking of the 43, great picture of the wet leaves.

Thanks. Here's one more from the same roll, a moving target so focus isn't the best but I still like it. FA* 80-200.

Consistently great images in here.
If I have to pick favourites though it'd be a tie between Colton's set and the pictures of the lovely young girls

I may not be posting much these days but I'm still lurking around quite regularly. Recently scored myself an LX so there'll be shots up from that eventually.
Meanwhile, here's one from the 67 which is basically a happy accident. Found some expired Agfa APX100 and had some fun, got some interestingly dramatic results!

That is a dramatic result. Nice accident. I like the eerie shadows on the left and right, they sure add an intriguing mystery to the simple, yet effective photo.

I've retrived a couple of rolls of Ferrania 100 from the lab.

I love this particular film, it is very forgiving and it has lush colors.
But I've also had many problems with it, when the metering for contrasted scenes tricked me to underexpose, with the result that I ruined many shots.
I find that I can salvage much of the highlights, so that a sky that looked white after the scan was instead fully captured with its correct tones! But instead the dark areas are almost always pitch black.

This, with the fact that the metering of my spotmatic tends to be off when measuring a scene with a back lighted figure, is something I have to remember for the future.

Two really nice surprises to me were instead the two night pictures I got with the Xmas light in the street: those were done free hand at 1.4 of aperture, and with short exposure times, but still I expexted them to be either completely dark or very blurred, they were spot on (to me, at least) with no pp except for a lens vertical correction in the first night shot .

So some pictures from a winter trip to Torino.
They're all Spotmatic F, Super Takumar 1:1.4/50 - 8 elements, with the same roll of Ferrania 100.









A crop. I love the grain, the Sixties feeling.

Thanks guys
Unfortunately it seems that the LX has a mirror problem, probably the infamous "sticky mirror" issue I guess.
But it was a bargain and is in otherwise good condition so it just means I'll need to wait a while to get it serviced before I can start shooting with it.

Nice shots. The warmth of the Ferrania film seems to work nicely here.
