Have with me a freshly-loaded Conley No.2 Folding Kewpie. Just yesterday polished off a roll in a Crest 120 box camera, and I'm halfway through the roll in the Ansco Panda.

I spoke too soon about my working selenium-cell cameras. Just after finishing a roll with my Fujica 35-EE, the meter became erratic. Might be the cell or just the wiring. No time to check it now.
Loaded for action this week is a Retina 1a (015) and Box Tengor 54/2.

Last week it was a Minolta XG1 with the 50mm f1.7 Rokkor and the 28mm f2.8 Celtic and the 135 f2.8 Celtic. And the 8x10 Pergo-pinhole.
Next week it will be the Yashica Electro 35 GSN with 45mm f1.7 Yashinon and the pinhole.
The following week I will make opportunities to shoot the Franka Rolfix with 105mm f4.5 Radionar in both 6x9 and 6x6 formats.
So say I.

This week I took out a Super Ricohflex I just purchased for next to nothing.
Turned out some nice results using Fuji Neopan Acros 100.
09-10-2007, 02:11 PM
A Zero 2000 pinhole camera loaded with Begger 200.
09-10-2007, 03:05 PM
...And the pics from the Pentacon Six TL came out very well, as did another roll shot with a Graflex 22...
All on HP5 of course, the finest film in the world for almost everything but ESPECIALLY old roll-film cameras. At least the negs look good though they're not printed yet.
Next I shall be loading a Graflex XL modified to accept RB67 backs and a Polaroid 600 SE with MF adapter and backs. (And Alpas, which although they're collectible, aren't old).
Good pics from the M2 loaded with Efke IR820c, too. They are printed.

I should have a new ground-glass for the 11x14 this week or early next, so I'll actually be able to put it to some use! I put a frame through the 5x12 this weekend though... went up to Antietam battlefield to observe some of the anniversary events - this year was the 145th commemoration of the battle. Just shot a frame of the Burnside Bridge, no re-enactments.

Just for fun I took out a Agfa B2 Shur-Shot Special that I just added to my collection.
Very basic camera, but has dual 6x4.5 and 6x9 format and a cheesy built in yellow filter.
I wasn't expecting much and some of the shots were underexposed, but some were quite decent.

I did a group shot at a car show with my 8 and 10 cirkut ( a roll in each camera), and shot some portraits with my newly acquired graflex home portrait 5x7 (first time out)
I think it's going to be a lot of fun to work with when I get the hang of it. I using the 3.5 ross xpress lense wide open and love the look in the finder
09-18-2007, 08:42 PM
A Seagull TLR with a fisheye converter lens plus red filter screwed on the viewing lens for focussing and framing and then on the bottom lens for exposure. Film is Ilford SFX. Final pictures will be masked to round on fibre based paper.

I used my Mamiya RB67 with 180mm lens at a ploughing match at the weekend. One DSLR owner commented "now that's a real camera!"
