Forum: Pentax Medium Format 3 Days Ago  
How do you tote your Pentax 67 or 645?

Great minds...:lol: I've been rolling with a Porta Brace "doctor's bag" designed primarily for camcorders, although it wouldn't be wide enough to handle a P67 with the wooden handle on the port side. One option that might work is the Ortlieb "Soft-shot" I was using previously--you could probably get a three lens kit in it, even with the handle attached, provided that the lenses are on the shorter side (e.g. the 105, 90, etc.) Lenses much longer than the 165/2.8 might make for a challenge, though, while mounted.

K-1 or 645D? I did it (not the sensible choice)

Ha, thanks--I was thinking that was too good to be true! Nothing wrong with the colors you're getting from that venerable lens, though...:)

Very nice--I'm curious, what does the smaller format do to the 105's "picture area"? If the first shot isn't a substantial crop, it looks as if you can frame a lot tighter than you can on its native mount.


At any rate, this thread has sparked a lot of daydreaming on my part--specifically, romping over hill-and-dale with a two body kit: a 645D for when you need a bracket and a P67 loaded with Velvia 50 or Acros for when the light is just right. If I had more cartilage in my knees, I swear I'd be able to swing it...:lol:

Thanks, Dewman--those big 6x7 negatives hold a lot of information even down-sampled for the Web.:) (Fine-grained films like Acros catch a lot of light, too...a different kind of cat from the old Tri-X 400 I used back as an undergrad!)

Thanks for the insights! I can certainly see how taking control of the entire workflow--from development through scanning--would be optimal. Like a lot of people, my first and last darkroom experience was when I was an undergrad, but there is a local developing "club" here in K'ville that might help keep the overhead low until I got set up at home.


At any rate, I am intrigued by the differences between Acros and the one roll of Delta 100 I tried--definitely like the blacks of the latter, but its reciprocity failure issues might make it a no-go when shooting stopped down in the low-light conditions I encounter here in the mountains.

So, I'm to assume all the sheilas in the Thomas Dux dress like this?:lol: Nice set: the second is my favorite...a mono treatment might be interesting as well. (Of course, that's a classic P67/ 105/2.4 scene--you should keep one loaded with Tri-X on you at all times.)

I was about to remark on just how well your A-series prime handled the scene without fringing (tree bark is always a sort of torture test for my K's) but it seems you have a zoom on holiday...60-250/4?

Thanks, Mole! As for Maisie, she was born in Mars Hill so it would definitely feel like home to her. I must say that she's still a junior assistant, meaning there's a rope-and-dally involved whenever the camera comes out of the case.:lol:

Thanks! As a total film newbie, what really was surprising to me was how the shot of the river sustained details in the highlights...that would be a five shot bracket and a lot of work in post with my K-5. At any rate, I'll be happy to lug the big beast for as long as my knees hold out.:lol:

A few with my Pentax 67 and Acros this Fall--these are kind of budget flatbed scans, but I'm excited about the detail tucked away in those big negatives:

Thanks, Kerrowdown--it's a part of the world where your ancestors might have felt right at home. (FWIW, many of the first white men in this part of the world were veterans of Oglethorpe's 42 Regiment of Foot who had been recruited primarily in the Inverness area.:))

Thanks! The Greenbrier area is definitely a place to visit if you're in the GSMNP--it's most famous for its wildflower displays, but of course it's beautiful any time of year.:)

BTW, Mole, I had my first "mid-life crisis" a few months back when UPS delivered a new backpack--in the midst of bending stays and otherwise customizing the fit, it occurred to me: "Hey, I'm never going to buy another pack this big in my life.":)

A few more experiments with Acros 100... I'm still getting a feel for what the B/W approach gives me in this hardscrabble landscape--subject isolation remains a challenge!:)

One that PF members Jacquot and Mole will recognize--Porter's Creek in the GSMNP. It's one of the lovelier flows I've been on (which is saying a lot) so it was nice to explore quickly without a fly rod in my hand. Still learning my P 67 kit-- for instance, that the 55/4 vignettes a bit with the CPL/hood arrangement I'm using--but otherwise I remain a big fan of Acros.:)

Mole! Very glad to have you back...I was thinking of you a couple of weeks ago while I was poking around in the 'brier.(Managed to slip up Porter's Creek for lunch at #31, but the main objective of the trip was getting a couple of bushels of Pippins to run through the dehydrator.:)) At any rate, the trillium shot remains a favorite--those "small landscapes" really set your work apart.
