One more taken in Minnesota. They were just resting after a long flight. It's been published but only in a local paper.

Yesterday was Plus-X 125. Man, this stuff has a wicked fast developing time I had to go with HC110 @ dilution H (half strength) just to get into the 5 minute zone....

...I'm not sure if I'm liking HC110 with these lower (sub 400) speed films, especially at higher dilution ratios to extend developing time. They seem a bit grainier than I expected and I'm wondering if a less reactive developer like D-76 or TMAX would treat them better.
It has been a long time since I did any B&W developing and even longer since I used Plus-X. My memory is that Plus-X is not particularly fine-grained despite its low film speed. I used to soup it in D-76 or Microdol, but eventually moved to Panatomic developed in Edwal FG-7 1:15. That last combination yielded extremely fine grain and incredible dynamic range. Too bad Pan-X is gone...

I gotta get me a tank. Tomorrow, B&H. Plus-X 125 brings the old days back so strongly... sigh.

Super photos especially the last
haha! DIY processing changed my whole outlook and continues to open my eyes up about differences between films and developing chems and procedures. I picked up a bottle of TMAX developer today. Didn't plan to; I was just going in for a bottle of Kodafix and a pack of archive pages...

Thanks for the compliment. That was the last frame of the roll.

Could very well be spot on there, Steve. These are the first rolls of 100 I've shot - bought 2 rolls each of Delta, Plus-X, Acros and TMAX. Both the Delta and Plus-X came out with a bit more grain than I expected and I am merely assuming it's the dilution (63:1) of HC-110 that contributed to it.

Here's a couple more off the first roll of plus-x thru the PZ-1 and Tam90...

Color is welcome! I think....

Evertime I take the MZ-S out for a spin, I am glad I did. I may just end up letting the other film bodies go. These are with the F 24-50 lens or an A 50/1.4










Thanks for looking!

Thanks for clarifying this is color too.

And Javier, I missed the boat so to speak on that shot. I was contacted by a then boy friend who said Reader's Digest was looking for storm photos of Lake Superior on a story they were doing about the Grampa Woo. Course he said he didn't think of "my" photos until it was too late for me to contact them. That's why it was an almost published.

That shot was taken with a K1000.

The other photo was taken with a MZ-5n, with Pentax 28-200mm @100mm, and with NPS160. I shot a lot of this film back then. They are White Pelicans and don't normally fly to that part of Minnesota.
