It's good that this thread is still alive, Mirek!

Recently I could acquire an inxepensive copy of a field camera 4x5 in. (some repairs still outstanding). Here is my first attempt to use it with a 90mm lens (equiv. 24mm FF). I am still struggling with the scanning process and PP!

Unfortunately I have no functioning Minolta Film cameras, so I hope it's OK to start off with a Leica M2 shot.


Fort Oelegem in the winter (shot 6 1/2 years ago, developed yesterday )

Leica M2, Summaron 35/2.8, FP4, ID11, Epson V700


However I still have a Minolta 3000xi and 7000 but neither work right at the moment, some new batteries might help but I'm not sure that's all of the problems. But I promise, when I get them working I'll run a roll through them and will post some of the results here

If you don't want to make the same mistake as I after not developing film for a long time read here

And I thought the link would point to Vivian Meier who left 2000 rolls of film undeveloped when she died.

Beautiful reflection in B/W, BTW, Pieter!

I absolutely love these last three images - creamy black and white.

Harald, I read that story some time ago and it was truly amazing. I am sure they were a lot more careful to develop those 2000 rolls with all amazing images on it. Thanks for the comment and this shot alone made me happy this wasn't the film I tried to develop in that old stock of Ilfosol 3

Roger, thanks, somehow I've been bitten by the B&W film bug again (it usually comes in waves) and I'm currently working on a a B&W film project about all the pre WW1 forts and casemates from the defense ring around Antwerp. It just started and will take some time to finish but I'll regularly try to post some results here. So more to come.

Glad you enjoy it, Pieter.

I found the Gravenwezel image quite extraordinary (do images mature during the time the film is not developed?)!

TFS!

Thanks Harald, I don't know, it could also be attributed to my inexperience with scanning and processing the images. Consistency and practice are not at a high level for sure. But I have the same feeling with the "Tuimelaar" school building, somehow it feels like a different image with an older look than some of the others.

After I gain more experience with scanning/processing I might just reprocess these two and see if they lead to a substantial different rendering.

Look who's lurking in the bushes


Leica M2 + Summicron 50/2 DR or Elmar 90/4 (can't remember), FP4, Microphen, slight crop

It's a shot I took in our garden in 1994 or 1995 when we lived in League City (Texas). I developed the film then but never printed or scanned it until today. Can't remember which lens I shot it with but I do remember trying to focus with a rangefinder on the eye of this creature was very difficult and inconsistent. This is about the best I got out of a total of more than 10 (mostly out of focus) shots.

Two more from the same film, from a visit to the Mesa Verde cliff dwellings in 1994. The only two B&W pictures we took that vacation, all others were colour slides with an OM2 or colour negatives with an OM10.
