Nice. What's the IQ like and what close-up filter do you use?

Presume these are stopped down a bit?
Thanks! Pretty good for the IQ and no light loss like extension tubes. On par with the 135/4 macro, but not the 100/4.

Here is a link to the close-up filters I use for my 6x7:

I used my Pentax Spotmeter V for metering, just took a couple readings and averaged them.

South side?
I had the RB67 with the 50mm wide angle up there at sunrise.
Yes. That one was near the east end at Desert View.
I should have some 4x5 of the Grand Canyon to post soon.

My god... So about 2 weeks ago I took a big chance on an Ebay auction for 22 rolls of Elite Chrome with an expiry of (April, I think) 2006, when the seller decided to accept my much lower offer a couple days later. Storage was entirely unknown and he'd only recently acquired it (he sell a lot of stuff - most of it non-photographic) which is why I low-balled a good bit. Just got the first roll back and it looks like it hasn't aged a day. I'd never shot this stuff before but it reminds me HUGELY of the Ektachrome my dad always shot when I was a kid. Just gorgeous stuff. Very happy today.

These are from the MZ-S with FA31... another roll is in an MX, and the rest happily resting in it's new frozen home.

Excellent results!

I envy your good fortune. I liked Elite Chrome a lot -- even better than Fuji Provia -- and I was very much saddened when Kodak decided to discontinue it. The Elite chrome I had had excellent sharpness and very rich, saturated colors.

Here's one shot with Elite Chrome. Not a Pentax though. Canon F-1 with a Canon 85mm f/1.2 Aspherical shot wide open at f/1.2:

Nice. I hope Tasmania can be preserved.

I was there at end of summer with the Ricoh KR-5, the SMC Pentax-M 1:2.8 40mm with Fuji 200
(travelling as light as possible with a small holster bag)

Triabunna and Maria Island, early morning.

Likewise!

Did you manage to travel around much when you were down there?

Only 2 days between airport and that area.
Most of the time was helping with home reno. But enjoyable and maybe I will get back to Tas for a longer time.
Regards !

Very nicely done! Over what period of time was that taken? It seems different season even so that's great that you seemingly maintained the same vantage point.

Ran through a 220 roll of expired CenturiaPro400 in the 67 last week. Another first - picked this up to test as a possible film for a friends wedding I'll be shooting late this month and it passed with flying colors. No shifts, but does need a tad extra exposure - should work out well.




Pentax 67 | Takumar 105/2.4 | Konica Centuria Pro 400 | Epson V750

I can't remember to be honest, all would have been taken over the summer period at some point. First two are early morning, last two are late evening.

I work for a guiding company, and this is the view from the balcony of one of our huts, so I get to see it every couple of weeks

Digging through old scans, seeing what I had marked to post to Flickr but never did.



Canon AE-1.
Canon (new) FD 35-70mm f4.
Kodak Gold 200 (expired).

(Part of a pile of expired Gold & Max film that a former coworker gave me a few years back.)





Meopta Flexaret Va.
Belar 80mm f3.5 + Meopta 1.00.5m closeup filter.
Fujichrome Velvia 50.
(Turned out a bit darker than I was hoping for, but I was trying not to completely blow the window.)
