    Well, this is a neg scan since I haven't made it to the darkroom recently, but it is a straight scan, just contrast and sharpening. Taken on the North Shore of Lake Superior with my new Rolleiflex Automat MX with a Tessar.

    I've got the same model myself and love the look of the Tessar lens. Nothing is quite like it.

    A couple color images. Both scanned RA-4 prints

    Space Age Lodge, Gila Bend, AZ -- could not resist photographing this a decade or so ago. My boys and I had breakfast here a couple weeks ago when we sort of stumbled across it again. Taken with the MX-EVS

    Oak, Highway 49, California -- nice surprise along the road during Springtime. Taken with the 2.8F

    I think the Tessar is a fine lens my T was a bargain at £109 I also managed to find an Automat for £50 for my brother which has a tessar.

    I join the party

    Showing images here embedded doesn't seem to work for me :sad:

    I have attached it

    It was taken with my Rolleiflex Automat (K4A). I don't use it anymore. I have a 3.5F now.

    Great show you guy's !

    And then to think that many if not most of your camera's are more than 50 years old.......
    These camera's can, with some love and CLA, outlive us all, try that with the modern d-stuff.

    two after work shots, quite ok for ISO 50 without a tripod.
    I have to re-do at least the 2nd photo with B&W film. It is quite hard to do this with velvia, as the building is normally something in between neutral grey and white. The bluish light from heaven just doesn't suit and velvia over-reacts here in my opinion.

    You can, but I think you would end up with a broken camera. :wink:

    the work on this thread is really, really nice and an example of what these 50+ years cameras and their current owners can do. hopefully, we are just taking care of these Rolleis for the next generation of owners.

    here are two shots from a trip to the Maine coast. i feel bad posting them alongside the fine work here.

    1959 3.5F, Model 1 + f3.5 Planar -- meter still working perfectly!
