Contax IIa w/Optima 400, Leica M6 TTL w/Neopan 1600, & Tele-Rolleiflex w/Delta 3200

Uh, that's weird. Exactly what I'm shooting... with a few exceptions.

Instead of a Leica M6 TTL w/Neopan, it is a Nikon EL-2 with Tri-X.
Instead of the tele-rolleiflex w/Delta 3200, it's an Mamiya RB-67 with HP5+.
Instead of the Contax IIa w/ Optima 400, it's a Crown Graphic/Schneider 135mm Xenar and Tri-X.

The astute among you will see that furcafe and I are using exactly 3 (three) cameras and film in each one (1).

Have used a Blackbird Fly (blue) and a Canon old F-1 (n) w/ 55 f/1.2 S.S.C. so far this week (both using Delta 3200), and B&J Grover 8x10/540 Ektanon planned for the weekend with Ektachrome 100. May use the 5x7 back with that same lens and FP4.

A Canon AE-1 with Tri-X and a 50mm 1.4, shot in the rain.

Outing in New York City this weekend. I'll bring two RFs - M5 with 35/1.4 and 50/1.5, and Minolta CLE with CV 21/4 and 15/4.5. I hope the weather cooperates!

I just took possession of a Ricoh KR-10 35mm camera w/winder and a Kiron 28-85 zoom lens. This same camera system was used by myself...back in 1980 when I was carrying out arson photography. New batteries and everything works perfectly! Oh, with it came the old Vivitar 283 flash! All of this was "given" to me...as the fire department went over to digital. Their loss...my gain!

As soon as the weather clears up a bit I will be shooting 2 Kodak No. 1 Panorams (original models ca. 1900 loaded with Fuji PRO 160S and T-MAX 100) and 4 Kodak No. 2 Brownies (late models E & F ca. 1925 - 1933, loaded with Kodak TXP 320, Ilford XP-2, Fortepan 100, and Arista.edu 400).

When I am not waxing masochistic, I do a lot of pix with a Zeiss Super Ikonta, some Daiichi Zenobias, and a gaggle of Minolta SRT series cameras.

I still have some Fuji film in an Argus C3 from Christmas Day. Right now the temperature outdoors is around - 40F and the ice fog has settled in along with poor air quality warnings. Such is life in Fairbanks,Alaska. This old eskimo guy can handle about 10 to 20 minutes outdoors any more. I went out with the Leica M3 on 12/21 for the shortest day shots in warmer(!) temps but this stuff is going to take some thought. Maybe some ex-military that HAD to work in these conditions could add their two cents on this.

Steve , at -40F it's colder than the inside of my freezer stay in keep warm even film gets brittle at those temperatures, it's 28F here in the north of England which is still below zero, and cold enough for me to stay at home.

Steve, I am certainly in no position to gripe about the cold (about 32 degrees) here in Arkansas with you having to shoot in that Eskimo freezin' Alaska cold. So, I just loaded up 4 more No. 2 brownies, and am heading out to shoot local landscapes with 8 of them buggers. Smiff

My new (to me) Contax IIa with CZ 50mm 1.5 lens.

My new 150mm Zeiss Sonnar T* for my Hasselblad. One out of the two lenses I own for this setup. Kodak Plus-X film, souped in Edwal 12 chemistry.

Shot in -10 last night with Trix and a Nikon FM2

01-01-2009, 05:52 PM
2 Hasselblad 500CMs, one with an 80mm, the other with a 50mm.
A Leica Minilux for grab shots.
Lots of HP5+

I'm using my beloved Olympus OM-2 again, but I have Fuji Superia 200 in it, which isn't very useful this time of year. But oh well, my tripod head should arrive tomorrow and I can start doing long exposure type stuff. Yay.

M2 with CV 35\2.5 Skopar, CV 50\2.5 Skopar & CV 75\2.5 Heliar and HP5+ and Tri-X. It's a nice way to close out 2008 and start 2009.

Happy New Year all.
