Re the post-processing; figured that was a foregone conclusion as the negative would need to be inverted at the very least
New test with an old colour negative. This might have been taken with a plastic compact of some sorts, or even a disposable camera. The negatives say kodak gold 400. Its still the same scanning with the K20D, the pizza box and the DA35 macro.



Invert the colours and shifting the white balance to 2000K got me sort of close. Then tweaking the colours more got me to this Im showing here. Im not too impressed but at kind of works. Im not sure how neutral these colours were to begin with in the negative.

BTW: Nice photos you are showing. I like the dynamics (if that is the right word).

Egl, that color shot certainly looks to be good enough for the uses I would be putting my "scans" to. Thanks for including your PP settings, too. I'm itching to give this method a try, but I'm not going to have the time to rig things up until October. Glad you enjoyed my photos - I enjoyed taking them

Best,
Kevin

Thanks, Nesster. I'm really fond of Tri-X. Haven't shot a whole lot of B&W, but of the film I've used, I like it the best. That Fomapan 100 doesn't look too shabby, either .

I was noticing the 28mm 3.5 Tak you used. Huge coincidence, but I just picked up this lens from my Dad yesterday. It was another piece of the SV kit I got from him 10 days ago. Details of the find are in the Sightseeing Screwmount thread here at post 474. It just keeps getting better and better. I just hope I do half as well by that lens as you did.

Best,
Kevin

Rollei Retro 100 in Diafine

Shot on a vintage Zeiss Ikon Ikonta 520/2 folding camera which shoots 6x9 (actually 6x10) on 120 rollfilm. The model I have is about as basic as you can get technically. It's from the thirties and the most basic version of this model. It doesn't even have a viewfinder. Composing the picture is done through a prism finder the size of a small mosquito mounted on top of the lens. Zone focussing only. The lens has no DOF scale and markings for 2, 3, 5, 10 and infinity. The lens is a f/6.3 Novar Anastigmat triplet lens. These lenses are not particularly sharp but they have a special kind of tonality and look to them that I can't help loving.

Bravo, Agnostic. This photo is amazing, notwithstanding the gear you shot it with. From your description it sounds like the equivalent of running a marathon after having a leg amputated and carrying a small child on your back. I can see what you mean by the lens' unique tonality even on the web. Thanks for sharing it with the rest of us mortals.

I've been meaning to ask, how is your exhibition going? I'm jealous of everyone on the other side of the pond who gets to attend. I really enjoy your photographs. They are a very real source of inspiration and in part responsible for my latent interest in film.

Best,
Kevin

P. S. Thanks for the comment on "my" lighthouse.

Thank you very much Kevin! The exhibition is going ok, lots of visitors and nice responses but regretfully not that many sales. Looks like I'll recoup my investment in prints and framing and a bit of pocket change, not much more than that.

Actually shooting with these old cameras is really enjoyable to me, it slows you down and forces you to pay more attention to what you are doing and trying to achieve. It is closer to the kind of meditative element of photography that I like.

Great shot Agnostic!

Does your Ikonta look a little like this?



Sounds like they have quite much in common. Anastigmat 6.3 lens, mosquito size finder mounted on the lens. This is a Contessa-Nettel Cocarette from 1919-1926. From 1926-1929 it carried the new company name Zeiss Ikon Cocarette.

Here's a pic taken with it:

Yep it looks quite similar to that. there are some minor construction differences I can see, mine looks slightly more basic in build but it must be based on the same design and probably has the exact same lens. Nice shot too.

What I want to find next is a german pre-ww II plate camera with a tessar and a 120 rollfilm back so I can try shooting some sheet film while still having the rollfilm option.

This was taken at an unfinished and abandoned office park near my home. The Zenitar fisheye seemed appropriate and the Ektar 100 came through with the required "snap".

And another with a more conventional lens:

These ropes secure the planks that make up the roof of a reconstructed native plankhouse at the Ridgefield wildlife refuge.
