This is from probably my favorite camera/lens/film combo.
Also, I recently sort of inherited a Konica Minolta Dimage Scan Dual IV. This is one of my first frames scanned with it.

Colton, great shot and you now have me officially jonesing to shoot Provia <g>. (Am currently in Gettysburg visiting my in-laws and I've shot two rolls of Portra 160 in my new MX). I think I've got some great stuff sitting on those two rolls and am looking forward to getting them processed when we get home. Velvia went out Friday morning before we left, so you should be seeing it this week.

Best,
Kevin

Thanks again Kevin. I think you'll like Provia.
I look forward to seeing some of your Portra 160 shots of Gettysburg! Portra is a wonderful film, and I'm sure Gettysburg has a lot to photograph.
I can't wait to get the Velvia.

Here's another from same combo as last one.

Nesster: Props for a panorama with film. Skill.
Picked up a second ME Super this week so I could have one for color and one for black and white. A quick shot from today. I love the ME Super.

@Montman, I'm with you on the ME Super and the kudos to Nesster. While he was at Point Pleasant and you were getting acquainted with your second ME Super, I was in historic Gettysburg, PA with my new-to-me MX and a couple rolls of Portra 160...

I'm pretty pleased with what I'm getting out of the MX, but it's essentially a manual camera as opposed to the aperture priority of the ME Super and SuperProgram. Instinctively, I find myself looking for EV comp, but the only EV comp I'm going to get on the MX is changing the settings myself. Making the adjustment slowly, but if it comes down to a matter of preference, I'd rather shoot aperture priority - old habits are hard to break.

A little bit of whimsy to start off with - apparently the Iowa sprinkler company has cornered the market on commercial sprinklers. I see them everywhere I go, including Gettysburg.

All shots - MX, Portra 160, M50 f1.7



My father-in-law is buried in this cemetery which is directly next to the National Cemetery.



Directly across from Evergreen Cemetery is another section of the battlefield.




If you look carefully in the background of this scene, you'll see a construction lift. Apparently one of the monuments needs some maintenance...



Just in case you missed the lift...



Thanks for looking. More to come in subsequent posts.

Best to all,
Kevin

Few more from the Gettysburg Battlefield...

All shots MX, M50 f1.7, Portra 160





The following shots are from the National Cemetery, again the MX, M50 f1.7, and Portra 160



The Civil War soldier's graves are laid out in concentric circles around the central monument. Fallen soldiers from other conflicts have separate markers that are more of what we are all (unfortunately) used to in military cemeteries.









Best to all,
Kevin

Kjon- I used to only shoot in AV mode and now I only shoot in manual mode. You nailed the exposure on these. I wish I could shoot my MX. The one I bought has a messed up meter. The shot of the brick building has a crazy amount of depth to it. Almost looks 3D. How amazing are the scans from the Portra 160. I scanned in my first roll last week and love that stuff. That an amazing place to shoot.
