Until you said it was December and I noticed snow on the roof I would never have thought it was winter. The picture has such a warm look, to me at least...

An accidental de-focused shot on the MX with 67 165/2.8 adapted at the coast... Was a nice surprise to me how it turned out though. On more expired Elite Chrome 100.

I would encourage all of you to click through to this image on Colton's Flickr stream. He is offering a print of this photo as a gift for those willing to support ALS research. The cause is worthy and the photo superb.

The lovely fluted radiator grille of a Daimler. Why can't modern cars have this charm?

I like it, it has a sort of "lomo" quality.

I also resurrected something from a galaxy far, far away, namely the T80 I bought some time ago and didn't bother testing it so far.

So, this is also a mini-review of the relic from the 80s, for those who don't know this is the first AF camera from Canon, more or less equivalent to the Pentax ME-X.

Like many Canons of the era it suffers to super-automation, you can't use it manually but there are five programs, from the small guide that came with it, it appears that Canon wanted to make a SLR easy to be used for people who didn't bother learning proper photography, F stop, EV and shutter speeds but wanted to get "pro" pics, so if you want to shoot open wide there is a program (shallow DOF), if you want a deeper DOF there is the relative program, if you want to shoot fast objects giving the impression of speed (Cooltouch's pics of racing cars) there is the flowing mode where you can select few shutter speeds. If you want to use fast shutter speeds there is the freeze program, for the rest there is the standard program. In the booklet everything is explained very well with simple language.

I have the two zooms, the 35-70 and the 70-200, they are optically like the standard FD lenses, that means consumer's zooms from the 80s so not so great, you can shoot manually, with AF or locking the subject. Sometimes the autofocus fails dramatically, but the camera is equipped with the L screen (that I also have in my F1N, it's quite rare) so manual focus is possible. The T80 is noisy, it beeps when the focus is locked, but I somewhat like this camera, because it's smaller and the blue plastic body feels better than for instance the T90.

Few shooting samples:



The macro capability of the 35-70 is laughable.



Also not much flare resistant.



This one has been taken at 70mm, shallow mode.



The barrel distortion is evident.



70-200 shot at 200mm, shallow mode. The separation is minimal as you can see...the Sonnar 200mm f2.8 is another lens.



Nevertheless the AF when it works makes a good work, 200mm shallow mode.



Pincushion distortion (moderate) for the long lens.



Probably the best shot of the series for me.



1/30 flowing mode, not enough to see the flow of the water.





Difference between 70mm shallow and 35mm program mode.



Boring architecture at about 45mm with a circular polarizing filter, that is difficult to use as the lens goes forward and backward.

In short interesting toy, nice built camera with typical industrial design of the mid 80s, and it also takes pictures! The film used was Fuji Superia 200.



Here with another example of design of the same era, I hope I didn't bore you to death with this post.
I love the Harris Tweed wallet!

This Friday I went to an airshow, unfortunately badly equipped as I didn't have anything longer than 210mm ( A 35-210 zoom), however I shot six films (four Portra 160 with the LX, one Portra with the Praktica BC3 and one of XP2+ with the BX20)...not entire happy with the results but some pictures came out nicely.

















All with my trusty LX, the A 35-210 zoom and Portra 160.

I might spam more pics in the next days. I have many.
Regarding identities of the planes:

- A400, Typhoon, Red Arrows, F35, P-51 Mustang: I think I am right.
- But I am struggling with the seaplane (Catalina?), Number"301" (P-47 Thunderbolt?), Parked by the Mustang (is that a Spitfire Mark I? It doesn't have the bubble canopy.

Done, and it is a great photo. I will be happy to display Colton's with prints of my more humble ones,
at nearly the same location using Ektar 100 on the RB67 with the 50mm.

I can fill-in the prop planes as follows: Consolidated PBY Catalina, some kinda jet, Grumman F8F Bearcat, another jet, North American P-51 Mustang & Curtiss P-40 Warhawk and another group of jets.

The following photos are from a 1996 visit to Kakadu and Darwin Australia.
The camera was a Ricoh KR_10 Super (ex pawnshop) and the lens was a Magnon Zoom 1:3.5~4.5 35~75mm (ex second hand shop in New Zealand)
These were on Kodak 400, the rolls were developed and scanned to pcd by Kodak
(in 1996, just before the pcd business was a deemed a failure by Kodak, as I recall)
Kakadu

This one at Darwin is with the SMC Pentax-M 1:2 50mm on the KR_10
https://app.box.com/s/1ebtylmzmswsl69kdm7pwabbazaj48od

I have about 250 old photos on Kodak pcd, and sometimes I have a session to convert the better ones back to tiffs, a few at a time.
I run them through scripts using FFT process to apply a small amount of inverse gaussian to partially sharpen the old lenses etc.
Then clean the dust spots.
The earlier Kodak pcd have some dust problems but the later ones (1996) ones are a lot cleaner.
