Balda Baldina with Prontor SVS shutter and baldanar f:2,8/50 lens. The rangefinder is slightly off and I'm looking for advice on how to fix that, otherwise its a daisy!

PS shooting Kodak Gold 200, which will meet its destiny in Cafenol-C, black-n'-white always.....

I'm shooting street with a Zeiss Contax 11 and the Zeiss Sonnar 5cm f.1.5 lens loaded with Fuji 400H, the only camera I own that's older than I am.

Currently have the F2A loaded into the bag with an 85/1.8 Nikkor AI'd and MD-1/MB-1 combo. IIRC, the film is Fuji Pro 160C, but may be Pro 160S. Also have been shooting my F4 with a 50/1.8 AF and, again, one of the Fujicolor Pro 160 variants. The F3P has a 50/1.4 Nikkor AI and Ektar 100. Nikomat FT2 has a 55/2.8 Micro and HP5+ loaded. Spottie has its 50/1.4 Super-Tak and a roll of 160S loaded.

If I wind up getting a lens, I will also be shooting the R4, with a roll of BW400CN loaded. I usually grab whatever body I feel like shooting on a certain day. Right now, the F is sidelined, mainly because I need to take care of the battery chamber corrosion on the FTn finder. It's active, but not exactly accurate @ the moment. I probably will get it out sometime in the next few days and just do sunny-16.

Canon Canonet QL17 G-III loaded with Ilford FP4+.
Nikon F2/DP1 loaded with Kodachrome 64, probably using my "walk around" 35-105mm f/3.5-4.5 Nikkor zoom lens.

It's Washington State Fair time again. Gotta love those racing pigs!

Portra 800 in a Canon T90
Delta 400 in a Canon Sure Shot Z180u

State Fair time already? May have to see if I can make it up there early next week.

Yep, it's that time again. The end of summer.

Hey! Wait a minute! Summer around here didn't even begin this year until the middle of July. That's when it finally stopped raining and warmed up. Now it's over by mid-August? And it's raining again today?

Welcome to Seattle, eh?

I usually go to the State Fair about 3-4 times, time permitting. If you do make it up and should spy a 6-foot 6-inch 225-pound fellow in a baseball cap holding a QL17 and an incident light meter AND trying to look inconspicuous - you'll know I've failed again...

Hah, I saw the late summer/early fall comment and immediately assumed you were in the Seattle area before before even checking the name and location. :) Thank you for pointing out the fair; I haven't been before and didn't even know about it. :)

My shooting plans over the next few days:

- Ricoh 500 with HP5+ pushed to 1600
- Finish the last few frames FP4+ in a Nikon FG
- Finish the last few frames of Kodachrome 25 in a Leica IIIc - light permitting

Not sure beyond that.

The Washington (Evergreen) State Fair (http://www.evergreenfair.org/)

Well worth a visit shooting with just about any camera...

Oh, I see, it's the MONROE fair. (Wondering why I haven't yet been exhorted to 'Do the Puyallup') Already have plans for this weekend, have to make it Mon or Tue, depending on the weather.

Well, this week I shot with two cameras - my Kodak Retina IIa with the 50 f2 lens and my Canham 5x12. Put one roll through the Retina, and 24 sheets through the 5x12. Which is a lot considering that I only have three holders for the 5x12 and they don't work well in my changing tent (I'm going to have to bite the bullet and get a Harrison Jumbo).

Had my New F-1 out yesterday, discovered it has 'focusing issues'. Back to the shop with that one, guess I ought to stick with what apparently works.

Tomorrow a friend from work is playing with his band at Dimbola Lodge on the Isle of Wight. This was the home of Victorian photographer Julia Magaret Cameron and is now a photographic museum and gallery.

The gig is to mark the 40th anniversary of the 1970 Isle of Wight music festival at nearby Afton Down.

My friend has asked me to take some pictures of the band so in the spirit of the 1970s I have decided to take my two Spotmatics with a 135mm lens on one and a 50mm lens on the other.

I've been shooting some Ilford XP2 Super today in one of my Canon T90s which it's hard to think of as an antique its such a modern advanced camera in every way, it's difficult to realize it's about twenty four years since they were made, and they were only made for about a year.
