1. Grandfather's (later mom's) Prakica MTL 5. Great camera!
2. I frankly don't know. I only remember ORWO and Efke brands (yaay for growing up in a socialistic country). I have no idea what color film we used.
Pentax LX with the 24~50 zoom outdoors, and primes in the clubs: a 20, a 35 a 55 and a 200. A completely stripped down graflex with a Xenar 135 I still have.
Plus-X outside, Trix-X inside.
Kodak Polyfiber and Oriental Seagull G (those blue boxes!)
Printed with a Beseler 45 with an Aristo coldlight. Proofsheets on Azo in an old Airforce Printer.
That darkroom was quite something, in a friends basement on East 7th between C & D, $100 a month that we split. A great big sink we made of fiberglassed plywood at the cost of many brain cells. Had a small patch of ground out the back door where I grew Irises. That darkroom was still intact, tho out of use till Sandy spit 5 feet of water in there.
i was shooting a lot of portraits of strangers .. and some assignment work
yashica 124G + K1000 ( the next year was a speed graphic + tri x )
tmx/tmy + sprint film developer
everything printed on grade 3 -4 seagull (blue box ) + sprint paper developer
i was also coating glass plates with liquid light, and using sprint developer to process them
1. Canon T90
2. TMax 400 in TMax developer and FP4 in ID11 / D76
3. Agfa Brovira (or whatever Agfa's single graded RC paper was at that time.
4. A very cheap Dia enlarger which I bought in 1973 whilst in high school. At least I upgraded the enlarger lens from a non-descript Soligor to an El Nikkor 50mm f4
Hasselblad 500CM bought in 1973 by my dad who later gave it to me. I am still shooting with the same camera.
Verichrome Pan souped in D-76 1:1
Tri-X souped the same.
