This week I am shooting with a Smith & Wesson. Be careful!

I'm shooting with Tmax 400 in a Toyo 4x5 monorail. Otherwise, new Portra 400 in an Olympus Stylus Epic, and I have a feeling that I'll be breaking out the Hasselblad 500C/M soon.

Gonna finish up my first test roll of this stuff. Waiting for hard, ugly mid-day sun to get the least exposure latitude. Tripod, mirror up, best aperture, that sort of test. As an aside, in hard sun, shoot a car obliquely at less than eyelevel. Look at one of the far wheels, see any detail in the backside of the rim, hub, steering arm? That's my Zone 3.:)

Good place for the first post!
This is my old folder with a 165mm 4,5 lens. I managed that i can use "modern" 4x5 inch cassettes and i built a new back for the focussing screen. And today i'm gonna test it.
Ah damn. I can't insert pictures at the moment. Sorry.
Tri-X @ 800 ISO using my OM 2 SP with Zuiko 2.8 WA and red filter.
Wonderfull clouds for landscaping today.
Just developed 2 films and these are looking good.

Like my Contax NX very much with its razor sharp Zeiss 24-85-mm zoom, this week trying out the new Portra 160.

Loaded my first Ektar 100 today. Will report about impressions when I finish the roll.

Got my Pentacon 6 back from repair. The shutter developed the usual fault (sticks open at 1/125s) so I sent it to Pentacon at Dresden for a shutter overhaul.
Now testing with Delta 400 - it certainly feels and sounds completely different!!!
