View Full Version : This week I am shooting with...
07-13-2011, 11:32 AM
I've decided to put away my really good gear for a while and experiment more, so:
Sitting unused for now: Mamiya 645 Pro TL; Nikon F3HP; Nikon F100; Leica M7; Pentax 67
Using this week and until further notice: Holga; Zeiss Box Tengor; Konica C35 Automatic Rangefinder; Nikon N90S with Lensbaby.
I am absolutely loving my Box Tengor!
This week I am using OM2 SP with TX 400, Zeiss Ikon Nettar with TMax 100 and XE-1 with Pan F.
Just picked 2 boxes of Ilford MG4 VC 9 1/2" X 12" , so I will be doing some enlarging and printing this weekend.

I went round Rome this late afternoon with four bodies: Minolta Srt-100x with Sensia 100 which is a lot of time I have to finish (this body was dedicated to the 24mm), Minolta X-700 with Rollei CN200, Voigtländer Bessa-L with 15mm with Ferrania Solaris 100 ISO and Canon Canonet 19 with Fujifilm Superia 800, as I want to practice with some negative.
I begun with the Srt. After some pictures, I had to use the 24mm and took the X-700. I took the first shot totally forgetting to set exposure. Then I changed the lens. Then I thought: did I set what for exposure? Answer: B was set as shutter speed, 2.8 was on the lens, just a tad too opened. We have to be aware that time is passing for everybody :(
Anyway luckily enough I noticed this strange modus operandi and did not repeat it for the rest of the evening. Sadly I forgot I had the CN200 (polyester base) and after such a blunder I should have jumped a frame. I managed to take a couple shots with the 15mm as well. No proper occasion to use the Canonet. An interesting church was quite "bright" inside (EV 5.2 at ISO 100) but there was a mass and strangely enough all raws of seats were taken. Didn't want to wait until the end of the mass because the sun was not waiting for me. Nice evening in every case. Should have gone out sooner, though.

This week I am going to shoot my best friend and his fiancé at their wedding. I am going to give my best. I will be using Nikon D90 with lenses 18–70 mm f/3.5-4.5G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor.

I am shooting 400 Tri-x, Provia 100f, and Velvia 50 & 100. I love my Velvia in my MF Folders. It's just so rich a color. :)

Kodak Recomar 33, Schneider Kreuznach Radionar lens, 9x12cm Foma 100 & HP5.
Discovered that the Kodak 9x12 film holders I have get themselves stuck in the back of the camera thanks to having a shallower edge at the bottom of the darkslide. My ragtag collection of Ernemann, Agfa, Leitz, Voigtlander and unbranded filmholders all slide off and on easily enough, only the couple of Kodak film holders get stuck (I freed the stuck holder by inserting the dark slide between the filmholder and camera to work the edge of the filmholder over the metal lip above the velvet where it was stuck, potentially getting some light on the exposed film inside). It's tempting to speculate that the Kodak film holders were not actually made by Kodak's Nagel operation...

Loaded up the Mamiya C-220f with Shanghai GP-3, I'm starting to really enjoy this film. I've been tweeking it out in Rodinal 1+50 and it responds like a dream.

I am using my refurbished Olympus 35RC and a Nikon F-100 with Tri-x.
The Olympus 35RC is my poor man's Leica

I am shooting my last roll of Tri-X 220 (exp. 12/12) in my Mamiya RB67. Took it to do some black and white shots of water lilies in some local lakes and ponds while on vacation this week.

Was shooting this week with a Leica M3 with the 50mm 2.8 Elmar and my Mamiya 645 Super with a 45mm 2.8 wide angle both with Tmax 100. I think I'll be shooting today with my new-to-me 500c and Arista Edu 200.
