Totally unscientific test but interesting
So I had a few experimentations yesterday. Took some HP5, put it in one camera shot 3 frames, took it out, transferred to another camera etc, and shot the same film on 4 different cameras. same film, same place, same exposure, same lens size, all on a tripod with cable release, and then developed (just for a test) in some old neofin red (rot) @ 15.5 minutes diluted 12.5ml/300ml.
Neg was then printed on glossy MGIV at grade 4.5 with my enlarger at top of the post (about 24x20 off a 35mm neg), developed in usual MG chems, and the print section scanned at 300dpi
Don't know what result I expected, but I was 1) pleased with the level of detail possible - the smallest checkerboard is 1mm squares, and 2) the order of the cameras best - not quite as good. (won't say worst cos they are all good) 3) Neofin Red is grainy.
1) Retina IIIC schneider kreuzenach
2) Kiev 4A Jupiter 8
3) Olympus OM1 50mm 1.8 MIJ
4) Werra 1 with a 50/2.8 Tessar
