I received a box of equipment from a fellow toastmaster I'd met once before,last night. We'd talked about photography the first time we met and how I shot film. He said he had some stuff for me and oh my


35mm 1.8, 85mm 1.7, 90mm 2.8 macro, an SRT 102, a stereo camera(so excited for that) and filters/tripods/straps. Still pinching myself.

So one of my favorite films is Agfa 160 XPS portrait, which unfortunately at this point is discontinued for about a decade. I've snagged rolls here and there but the price keeps rising. I've come across some refrigerated/frozen bulk rolls and I'm ready to take the plunge. I have no idea where to take said plunge, what equipment is good/not good, and any tips you guys can give me would be great. Thanks.

I've gotten the photos back. They came out perfect. Some issues with shadows in people's eyes but way better than the tri X at 1600 I pushed that night.

Agfa Ultra 100 @ 50. Such a vivid film, just wish it wasn't so rare. Pentax LX, Voigtlander 40mm.

I buy a lot of my expired film stock from eBay, things I usually can't find other places. Today eBay is having a $15 off sale of you spend more than $75 and use the code: CRUISEN2SUMMER. It's not limited to film. Thought I'd share the summer vibes.

Last night I shot a roll of Delta 3200 at my friends wedding with my LX. I only realized that's the meter wasn't on 3200 but the tick right before it when I unloaded the film. Should I have the lab develop as regular or something else?

Not pure yellow? Never used yellow. Only orange and red. And a kr85 warming filter

The beer at the brewery was good. I noticed the red but I didn't think about it until I got home later. On the field I had a super A shooting RPX 25. The Neopan in the lx was just a holdover. As long as I get usuable images I'll be happy. My shadows will be dark though.

I had a monopod. Half the battle. Just a bit worried I might have ruined the photos. But I'm happy to get an image.

I shot some of my alumnus annual softball game today and I used a red filter. Subsequently we went for happy hour afterwards and I left said filter on. Will I have a problem? In terms of weird skin tones? The light was sort of contrasty at the brewery. Using a Pentax LX, K50 1.4 and a 25 red.

I have a dual system with Minolta and Pentax (with an occasional Olympus appearance). I've been trying to track down an XD with the new logo but it's near impossible. :(.

I just wanted to let you know this is the exact wording I tell people when they give me the incredulous look after I say "I shoot film". Imperfection makes it perfect.

I order some leather from cameraleather.com last month and it came promptly. I had no issues. The site is a bit of a head scratcher at first but it works.

The first looks like an oil pastel. The lighting is beautiful.

I did. I'm still cleaning off the old glue but the pieces look like a match to the old ones (but also look tiny, if that makes sense)

I recently received a K1000 as a part of lot of equipment and the faux leather was peeling. I ordered a replacement and to my surprise it doesn't fit (the leather is fine). There's a metal circle of some sort to the left of the mount. No markings of any sort. So for those who are knowledgeable, what is this? Attachment 300082Attachment 300083

The aperture closes and opens fine. There are no oil marks or streaks on the blades either.

No filter. I've cleaned both the front and rear glass. I've never seen anything like this before. I have to find my K5 in order to test , shoot more film than digital :)

Just received a K2DMD in the mail and other than brassing the K2 works and meters fine. The thing I'm ambivalent about is the 50mm 1.2 that came with it. It has dust, it what I think is dust. Could it be haze? Attachment 295911Attachment 295912Attachment 295913. The filter is dented but that's minor.
