Nice tonality to your shots - what film was it ? Also I see only 2 photos, not three ...
99% sure it was superia 800@400. The bottom is two shots side-by-side.

Thanks ! WOW the bottom one looks almost like a stitch - great framing there

It's the same doorway from both sides. Spot the downspouts and the 3 arched windows. Kind of an accidental 'poor-man's pano' I guess. I like the trippy, mcescher -ish feeling of it. I think it's the way the telephone pole has a similar perspective relationship with the picture it's not actually in that makes it seem as if it was stitched.

Indeed a nice visual illusion!

tomorrow some 15 rolls (MF and 35mm ) will be collected from the lab, I'll heat up my scanner next... this is what's keeps me shooting film: the thrill gets in in front because not knowing what results will show up
Nice man I am with you on this one. except most of the rolls I receive developed are cut waiting for scanning when I actually get the time to do it. But imagine my thrill then seeing film photos with 4+ years delay :P ( I obviously do some scanning but only hand picked frames, rest of it waits until my retirement :P )

What shape is that in? Original bellows? Have/will you post some non-dx shots?

I think I've posted a couple here, yes. In certainly used, but lightly so, fantastic shooting shape. Original bellows, yes. Both pieces of glass still present in the flip-up viewfinder. Very light and simple. I've only had it a couple months but it is what I take with me now if I want light 6x9 - lighter and more compact than my comparable Nettar and I like the rendering of the Trinar lens better (based on the only couple rolls I've shot). Glass has a bit of dust but surprisingly clean and completely scratch free. When I received it I thought there was some fungus, but just turned out to be a bit schmutz on the outside.

All 6x9 images in this album are with the Rolfix (the 6x6 are with the Solida III): https://www.flickr.com/gp/chickentender/wrp7W5

Here is one more example.



and one more (this may be a double post - I think that it is - apologies to anyone who's seeing it twice)

Interesting. On the whole I like the Soilda shots more, as in a lot more. The Rolfix has a Holga-ish charm, which is not something that much interests me. Pehaps I expected too much from a triplet lens, even of Rodenstock pedigree.

The Solida has a triplet as well, but I prefer it (the Radionar) also myself. One of my favorites ever only having it not 4 months.

Still, I don't think I'd base the Trinar's merits on my first several images attempts from a single roll of Fujichrome. It's quite more than a Holga to be sure.

This is one of the few hand held night shots that came out decently:





It's a sushi bar and the camera is a ST705, I think I was shooting Fuji 200.

Don't know what caused the blue streaks in the third shot.
Scratched negatives. Check the film path in the camera for rough spots and if you squeegee your negatives, stop. My guess is this happened after the film was taken out of the camera.

There may be a problem with your infinity setting then.
Here are example from my Rolfix, and they are hardly Holga:

Great picture? Nah. This was a grab shot on the side of a highway. I believe any child could replicate it with a box of 8 Crayolas, but somehow, the simplicity of it appeals to me.

ETA: Pentax K2, M50/1.7, Provia 100F.

He was viewing my examples above... Though I agree, Holga is not how I would describe the Trinar.
