View Full Version : This week I am shooting with...

Just curious, what is the project FM2?
It's an early black body that I got from KEH for $10, plus shipping. Was in their as is section. Was dropped hard enough to damage the top cover and to break the ears off the mirror box that hold the top cover in place next to the nameplate. It also had been modified by the previous owner to allow usage of non-AI lenses. Alas, that also meant that AI and AIS lenses (as well as AF lenses) had to be metered with stop-down metering. The camera also needed a foam job and a back. I didn't make it to the repair shop today for the meter coupling ring, so the camera still waits for that before it can be used. I hope to be able to get the part tomorrow.
This week, my Nikon F4 with a 35mm f/2D lens, and the last of my Kodachrome. Yesterday was 25, today was 40 Type A, and the weekend 64.

Looking forward to using my RB67 this weekend and with luck now that the focussing screen is in the right way up, when I focus on a person, they should be in focus on the film, not the trees behind them, which was the case previously!!
Oh, and I have a roll of PRO400 ready to go in the OM2N too

I took my Anniversary Speed Graphic out today. I also loaded up a few more film holders this evening.

Think I'll go through all my 35mm cameras and finish each roll of film. That would be Nikon 8008s, Nikon 8008s, Nikon 6006, Minolta Himatic 7s. Not counting the Rollei 35s as I just loaded a fresh roll and have not started shooting it. Maybe some kind of New Years resolution to finish what I start.

I've been shooting the 195 polaroid a bunch. Mostly 664 I bought from the impossible project. Yeah, I could get it cheaper elsewhere but I think of it more as a donation towards a good thing. :> Running some fp100c through it, too. Also just refurbished the seals on an Oly RC. Looking forward to capturing stuff on the trek into work.

How do you find the 664 compared to fp100c? I haven't tried any IP stuff yet, wonder if any fits my RB67 NPC Land Polaroid back, it takes the 3.25x4.25" film packs.

Found a wee bit of time to squeeze in some 4x5 pinhole. Been loading the Zero Image 4x5 Deluxe with Adox Art CHS 25, and tried something new for the very first time, Arista EDU Ultra 100. I think it's a new 4x5 film because Digital Truth didn't have it dialed in on their Massive Dev Chart. Just souped both films, same subject (sunset along Big Sur coast). I'm going to continue to work with Adox Art CHS 25 for shooting pinhole. It is a lovely film for it. For long exposure times, reciprocity is very minimal so it becomes faster than 100 ASA films. It may even be faster than HP5+ because that film has a heavy reciprocity. Wow, here I go pontificating away.. it's been a LONG time since I've posted on APUG. Been so so busy with my other project.

Some 4x5 pinhole which is usual, and Voigtlander Avus 6x9 with 120 roll film back circa 1930 I believe shooting TMax 100, and for fun, I hardly ever work in miniature film but I had a roll of 35mm so why not.. Got my dad's old camera he bought when in the Navy in 1960. A Zeiss Ikon non-rangefinder non-point and shoot little beauty. The shutter only works on 1/60, 1/100 and 1/300. Just loaded it with the only roll of 35mm b&w I have. Going to see what this overcast foggy cloudy weather will look like at Big Sur today. I love days like today, shadows are manageable even high noon. Should be a good day... I'm including a quick Blackberry photo of that Zeiss Ikon for you subscribers. There is two names on the lens but none on the body other than Zeiss and logo. The names on the lens are Contina and Prontor-SVS. Not sure if that's model name or something to do about the lens/shutter?

Kodak Portra 160NC expired 2005 in the Mamiya RB67 and some B&W film to test out the other film back once I get it cleaned and replace the foam.

Still PanF+ 135-36 in the FTbN...

Another trip out with my Rolleicord this weekend documenting the re-building of Ryde pier. Lots of 8" x 8" and 2" x 8" planks of what looks like teak being used to replace the whole of the wooden deck.
