Well, I'm really bad at commenting this year but what can I do when I have really hard time at work and when I return home I do not feel like doing too much Dyxum stuff Ehh, I even failed to finish the next roll of film. Add to this the weather which is rather awful ...

Anyways, time to start doing a review of what was posted so far - let's start where I stopped ...


Stanbury
Nice series from your Dyxnax 5 and fine grain from that Superia X-Tra. Somehow I liked the first three shots the most. The portrait of Darwin is brilliant The skeleton cow is scary - it looks like it has a rifle pounted in its forehead - will killer cows take a revenge on humans? Ha! Good idea for a movie

You were brave with that 500/8 - I had this lens in my hands once and managed to make a few shots and I had hard time keeping it steady

Isn't Dynax 3 all automatic camera? It delivers nicely exposed photos. I like what you achieved on your series, although the minimalistic compositions ("Grain ans sand" and "Floating over the deads") were the most appealing to me, but that's because I always love such photos. The "Buffalo pack" gives a nice juxtaposition of nature and industry.

I see that Maxxum/Dynax 5 is popular film camera And not without a reason - I think it is brilliant - very capable camera in a small body and very cheap nowadays. I've just ordered another one for 9.5 USD (incl. shipping, which was nearly half of the price): first of all I could not resist the price, secondly - I have a plan for Dyxum challenge/activity soon OK, enough of this off-topic talk - back to the photos ...

Tmax 400 - did you develop it yourself? I still need to put all things together to start developing my own films. I have all equipment, just need to "convince" myself to do the job

OK, it's a nice series of photos, although I would love to see a bit more contrast - maybe this is because of my (uncalibrated) screen and my personal tendency to process photos in darker tones. It's hard to choose the best of the series (although I have a few candidates). I think that whole series creates a bigger "quality" - I can see how it shows a story - I agree with what waldo_posth wrote.

600si - my favourite camera. To be honest I prefer it over Dynax 7. It just feels right in my hands. If only it had better "guts" But then there is 800si, oh well, I started feeling this "get 'em all" attitude again

Fuji C200 gave you quite pleasant results - colors look good and natural. OMG, that is vignetting! That's interesting that it disappeared quite quickly. BTW, I love this second photo from this lens - the motion blur adds a lot to it.

@tadeusz - your Photobox links are not working, but I'll see what I can do about the Eagle and Child

Stanbury, Interesting to see Oxford again after all these years! It looks a lot busier than I remember it. Nice photos - I particularly like no.8, the Radcliffe passage, which shows the depth of tone you can get with film.
A900, A58, 5d, Dynax 4, 5, 60, 500si/600si/700si/800si, various Sony & Minolta lenses, several Tamrons, lots of MF primes and *far* too many old film cameras . . .

Many thanks ... and yes the old town is very busy these days - lots of tourists, summer schools, a new term beginning, all add to the pressures.

Continuing my commenting :) This time page 4 ...

800si - I have to try it - it's waiting for th efilm to be loaded ;)

I would prefer more contrasty processing, but overall - very pleasing B&W series. "Mixed traffic" is my fave


Snegren (roll 2)
Different film and different look and feel - contrast is for my linking

I like all those architectural shots you presented, particularly from part 2 and 3. The "Two towers" is abolutely fantastic.

This was enjoyable session. Good lighting, great warm colours. I'm sure she was happy with the results.

(p.s. Myself, I would not be brave enough to shoot such session on film )

Mirek, one of the things I love about film is how it forces you to let go from instantaneous feedback. I think it actually helps results. Since you can't check your results as you go, you mind is freer to think only of the shots. I think you waste fewer opportunities that way.

I'll never forget an interview I saw of Richard Avedon, back in the late 50s. He was talking about how much pressure he sometimes felt to get the job done right when shooting important people like political figures, presidents. He said he supposed he could always recommission the shoot if he absolutely had to... Then the interviewer asked him, "well have you ever had to reshoot anyone?" And he said, "well no..." and he chuckled at this admission as if to say, "I know the pressure is just in my head". It was a very charming way of admitting the difference between one's fears and one's reality.
I detest bugs, especially spiders.
