I feel dynamic range in this scene was a bit too much for reversal film, but you take what you get in situations like these.

None with the 50/1.4. Maybe with some of the wider lenses, but I'd be surprised if there are any.

Glassless but still achieves infinity focus. FD mount is probably about 3-4mm shorter than F.

TBH I'd rate the F-mount adapter as the worst of the 3 FD adapters I've used, but I like the lens and don't want to invest in yet another camera system.

Screwed up this entire roll by forgetting to adjust the meter to the correct ISO after putting the film in. Thankfully the local E6 processor now does push processing, so was able to salvage it. Turns out the new Ektachrome pushes really well.

My last roll through this camera. I sold it off over the weekend as I have too many TLRs, and this one just wasn't getting used enough compared to my other Flexarets.

Fairly strongly cropped to improve composition.

E6it! will also do push processing of up to 2 stops if necessary. I just got a roll of E100G back that I had to have pushed, and I have to say I was impressed by the results.

I'll post some shots from it once I can get some of the scans up on Flickr.

Edit: A pair of shots

Shortly after I took this photo, I looked down and saw that the locking switch on the baseplate was turned to A. "Huh," I think, "I can't remember if it's A or Z that means it's properly closed." And then I yanked on the back to find out.

Turns out the answer is Z. :o

Thanks Colton. The colours are all down to a bit of rain the hour before and a dentist's window sign that's far brighter than it has any reason to be.

We'd walked past it earlier in the week; B's comment at that time was that it was blinding, and my response was that we were coming back once I had acquired some appropriate film. :lol:

Some more 6x7. Flowers & blossoms this time. I've got 1, maybe 2, rolls of cold-stored Provia 400 left, and I've been going through them very slowly. It's second only to Neopan 400 on my list of films I wish hadn't been discontinued.

Photo 1 was taken on an extension tube either #1 or #2 and photo 3 has been fairly heavily cropped in order to improve the composition.

A surprising amount of this roll came out scratched quite severely, which continues my run of bad luck with CineStill. Still, this one came out just the way I wanted.

If I could only keep one 67 lens, this would definitely be the one.

Fiddling around with some expired Ektachrome 400 and a Kodak series VI "portrait filter" (read: closeup filter) that I somehow acquired. Based on the amount of green tinting, I'm thinking that shooting through one of those purple fluorescent filters might be an idea. Though most likely I'll just wind up cross-processing the rest of the rolls.

One of the recurring flea markets I check out has a few semi-regular camera vendors. They range from specializing in rare/high-quality equipment and charging appropriately, to whatever odds and ends they picked up at garage sales/thrift stores/on Kijiji* recently. (Usually a lot of Canon A-series cameras and FD 50/1.8 lenses.)

Most of the time there's nothing worth buying, but sometimes...

This one came from a seller who's somewhere in between the two extremes: he's got a few really good pieces and knows what to charge for them, and then a bunch of odds and ends. Someone apparently sold him a lot of Exakta lenses the other day, including this one.

* Canadian Craigslist/Gumtree equivalent.

That might be worth checking out. Thanks.




I use a Patterson tank, usually with inversion instead of the agitation stick. This roll was stand-developed, as I found that Efke takes well to that. Though that does remind me that that technique does sometimes result in streaks coming from around the sprocket holes. I'll have to try my next B&W roll through it with more regular development and see what I get.

Picked up at the local flea market. While the Kilfitt-Makro-Kilar name is a clue that this was designed by Heinz Kilfitt of Robot fame, it wasn't produced by his Munich factory. Instead, it was one of two Kilfitt lenses produced in Vaduz, Liechtenstein. The other being the Makro-Kilar E, which differed from the D in that it only went down to 1:1.2 instead of 1:1.1.

Near as I can tell, these are also the only lenses that Kamerabau Anstalt Vaduz produced — and possibly even the only lenses produced in Liechtenstein. The 2.8 aperture dates this lens to no earlier than 1956, as the versions produced in 1955 had a maximum aperture of f3.5.

The OM bodies always throw me for a loop when I see them, as it takes me a moment to remember that the shutter controls are on the lens mount. And during that brief moment before I remember I'm left going "1/1600? What?" :lol:

I need to find a better way of keeping the dust off my negatives. Generally not so bad on a regular frame, but cloning the spots out of panos is a bit annoying.

This was likely one of the slower shutter speeds, and it's showing the banding that I thought I had seen on some previous shots.

Going to post this here as it's monochrome; even if it's black-and-blue rather than black-and-white.

Sorting through old negatives. Based on the sky, I'm guessing that I shot this with a filter of some sort. But no idea which filter it might have been or what lens I was using.

They made either two or three of them, but only for the 90mm. They're fairly uncommon and I've never bothered to look hard enough to find out what the going price is. Probably cheaper than the 135 at least, if only because they're not as desirable.
