So a group of Apugers go to the wrecking yard with the esteemed Mr Dowdell as our leader on Dec 30th.
We drive through a blizzard of snow that quite frankly I thought would end us all up in Emergency.
We arrive, weather clears , 12 rolls of film for the Nobelex and I know exactly what I am going to shoot. I set up the camera at hyperfocal distance for approximately 3ft away from the objects of my intent.
Here goes , Silver Competition won, Emulsion Mag competition won.
Alex Hauley you don't stand a chance . I'm thinking first, second and honourable mentions with this shoot.
Get back to the lab, Laura develops the film, contrast density , content looks perfect.
Well I better check with a loupe , these suckers are award winners.
Wait a minute, every frame is totally out of focus, I am sure I had the setting at under 5ft !!!!!!!!
My bright partner takes one look and says*Don't you know the Noblex is set for meters not feet.
Ok Mike , I want to go back, give me a call this is an emergency.
