I have a roll of Plus-X in my baby Crown Graphic. Also using my OM-3Ti with some Pan-F+.

My Minolta Autocord is expected back from Karl Bryan tomorrow, so I'll be testing it out, and I have my trusty $10.00 SRT-200 with me wherever I go. Sean, how do you like the Fujica 35-EE? I have one that doesn't work, but If I ever find somebody to work on it, it is something I'd love to play around with.

It seems I've always got a camera or two with film in it waiting to be used. Right now:
Nikon F4 / Sigma 15-30mm w/ deep yellow gel; with some old Panatomic-X (tripod mandatory)
Canon EOS-1 / Canon EF 22-55mm; with t-max 100
Zeiss Ikonta 521/2 - 105mm 3.5 Novar; with Arista 400
I usually have film in one of my Holgas too, but for some reason not at the moment. Like to have them ready for use at moments notice, cause I'll take pictures of just about ANYTHING with them!

Yashica 24 with some slightly expired Konica 220 color neg film.
Minolta XE-5/MD Rokkor-X 50mm 1.7 with a roll of Fuji 200 print film.
Yashica GSN with Arista Premium 400 (Tri-X)
Kodak Retina IIIS/Schneider-Kreuznach Retina Curtagon 28mm/4 with Arista Premium (Tri-X)
And I'm chomping at the bit waiting for a delivery of some Acros 120 so I can spool a roll onto a 620 spool to test a recently acquired Kodak Reflex II.

During the weekdays: As always, an M6 with my 50mm Summilux ASPH, loaded with Tri-X (or HP5). On the weekend: the Blads loaded with E100VS and PanF Plus/FP4 Plus.

This week I've been shooting Fuji Professional 400H in my Canon EF.

Shot a roll yesterday in my Voightlander vitomatic, will, if the weather permits, shoot roll in my Zeill Ikon Contina folder, and also have a roll of 120 in my Ensign selfix 820, just waiting for the gales and heavy rain to go.

Pen D, S or EE
Pan F+ or Kentmere 100
a roll a day! (though I'm going to go broke doing it)

Starting Saturday, I'll be shooting my 12 gauge, with my Pentax P&S in my vest pocket. Spring gobbler season starts! I'll be in the woods before sun-up and listening to the coyotes howling and the elk bugling. Hopefully maybe a tom or three will make an appearance. I love this time of year.

I just finished shooting a roll of Plus-X 120 in my Certo Certix. Expired 1989 but frozen since new so I suspect the developed roll will be fine. Next up will be a Plus-X roll in my Agfa Isolette. Only 17 rolls of the Plus-X left so I've been trying out Acros 100 as a replacement.

Just picked up a Kodak 35 and couple rolls of Plus-X (fresh) from Kaufmann's (a favorite local camera store).
Home CLA went well. Tip: Leave "Wind" knob on the top deck after removing its retaining screw. The little springs and cylinders that enforce winding direction will pop out. Thought I had it together but when I went to bed I found a spring in my hair.
The "huge" mirror makes the rangefinder suprisingly clear and bright.
I know what the camera can do because I had one of these in high school, and have a print taken by one up at the front door.

Mamiya 645 with Acros 100 at my daughter's graduation.

Changed my mind this morning and loaded Panatomic-X instead.
Thought I'd lost, but found a filter adapter I made for it that lets me use my 49mm filters. Since I recently did sensitometry on the film I know I'll get full 32 speed so set the meter to 16 for the yellow filter.

Linhof tech III 5x7 with either a 210 xenar or a 300 Comm. Ektar

Hassy 500C and 500EL/M, Nikon F3/T, and a Crown 4x5.
Maybe a Pentax 67, too.
