I had a few cameras sitting around for awhile with unfinished rolls inside. So I took them all for a walk today and shot them out.

Quite an odd medley:

Nikon N80
Canonet QL25
Fuji Pet 35
Agfa Optima I
Ricoh Auto Shot

..and the results were...

Nikon N80 -- sharp and well exposed prints as expected.

Canonet QL25 -- sharp but underexposed on auto about 1 stop. I will compensate next roll. Battery was fresh. Camera recently refurbished by Essex Repairs.

Fuji Pet 35 -- didn't finish the roll yet!

Optima I -- sharp but underexposed on auto. Poor exposures on backlit scenes, to be expected.

Ricoh Auto Shot -- a pleasant surprise as most shots were razor sharp and well exposed. Selenium meter working fine after 40 years!

A Balda Baldixette I just bought for next to nothing.

6x6 on 120, 72mm two element lens, one shutter speed (1/60) and a choice of f9 or f16. I think the weather dictates the the choice of film (400 for dull days, 100 for bright days).

A quick test roll yesterday looks surprisingly good, much better than my similar format, 0.20 Ilford Sporti 6 which I reported on earlier in this thread.

I will take it out for a proper test tomorrow.

Just bought 8x10 polaroid equipment (everyone's getting rid of theirs cheap) and some typ 809 and 803 I scrounged up from B&H. Last chance to try it I guess.

This weekend I will hopefully be taking out my recently converted Polaroid 110A.
It now takes 120 film on a 6x10cm format, six pictures per roll.
I was going to do a 5x4 conversion but the rangefinder window would have been obscured. I need a 110B for that now.

Newly acquired (actually given to me) Nikon FG with 50mm 1.4 and Soligor 135mm 3.5 setup and some black and white or color film.

The FG is quite a nice compact body which is often forgotten about. It was one of the first (along with the F3 I think) Nikon bodies to have TTL flash metering and works in manual, aperture and program mode (you have probably worked this out for yourself by now!).

I have had one for twenty five years (at least) which has never had a problem.

I can't comment on the lens although I do have a Hanimex 135mm 2.8 which is excellent despite Hanimex not being known as a quality lens manufacturer.

Have fun,


Steve.

My new Rolleiflex Automat was just CLA'd and last week I tested with a roll Fujicolor 160. I found no problems.
I'm new to the Rolleiflex, I was curious to see what all the fuss was about. I really like the thing; light weight,accurate focusing
quiet (very quiet) and sturdy.

This week I'll carry around with me and see what I find. I've got some XP-2 in it.

Coworker wanted his Nikon FG and 50mm 1.4 to go to a good home, so he dropped it off on my desk. Will replace the batteries and load up some Ilford for a test drive.
