The year-long film challenge 2021-2022 edition



What is The Dyxum film challenge?
This film challenge is simply about revisiting analogue photography for a bit of nostalgia, experiencing a radically different workflow and ultimately, appreciating how convenient our modern equipment is.

Who
Any Dyxumer can join this challenge. Just subscribe below - as simple as that.

When
The idea is to keep shooting film over the next year - starting on 6 September 2021 and ending (nominally) on 5 September 2022 – this challenge is flexible, because analogue photography is a bit like that….

Equipment
You can use any film camera and any lens you like (no matter what brand or format, e.g. medium format, or subminiature) however we would ask that one of your first rolls uses an alpha-mount (Minota AF) camera (if you have one at present). Like everything about this challenge, we can be flexible here, so if you are part way through a film in your Super Frankarette, you are still OK to post. But remember that we are alpha-mount forum so try to work in any Alpha mount camera you might have fairly early on.

If you don't have any Dynax, Maxxum or Alpha film camera then just use what you have - participation is the important bit.


Results
Try to post just the 1/3rd of the best pictures from each roll of film - we realise that sometimes you may have full roll of keepers but you have to narrow your selection down to 4, 8 or 12 shots - depending on the roll (i.e. 12, 24 or 36 frames). You can always post your out-takes in open views, or in one of the themed film threads.

Just one thread this time. So declare yourself, post your 1/3 keepers, discuss what cameras you are planning to shoot with or comment on other people's photographs all in this thread.

To make the thread a bit less photo-intensive please split your photo-posts into groups of 4 shots - it will be easier to navigate. When posting please state the camera, lens and film used. You might also want to mention how the photo was digitzed (e.g. what scanner/software).

Please remember to "number" your photos in a unique way - this will make it easier to refer to a particular shot in the discussion.

I have pictures taken in late 2020/early 2021 I still need to scan and even have developed. Where do I share those? The 2020/2021 thread is closed. Do I share these here because analogue photography is a bit like that…?

Excellent! Just spotted this and yes, I'm in.

I'll start by shooting with my AF Minoltas: 9xi, Alpha 7, Alpha 5 etc.
I'll then try to use as many different cameras as possible:

Peco Universal III in 4x5 and 5x7 (about time I used the Zone IV 5x7 enlarger BTW).

8Banners 4x5 / 6x12 pinhole

Home made 4x10" curved film plane pinhole

Widepan Pro II 140 swing lens medium format

Some of my 6x9 and 6x6 folding cameras

Fujica G690

Agfa Clack and Clack pinhole

Canon EOS 10 with unperforated microfilm

Minolta manual lens cameras: XE, XG9, SRT 101, SRT Super, XGM etc with some of my fast Rokkors (58mm 1.2, 35mm 1.8 etc

Minox 35mm

Some of the half frames (I have too many to list)

Viscawide-16 swing lens 16mm pano

Minolta 16's

Minolta 110 SLR MK1 and Mk2

I can see I'm gonna have to make a spreadsheet to ensure I cycle through these and as many lenses as I can. Then there's all that lovely film in my fridge. Hell! I may even make a dent in it!

OK, here goes:

Started on Sept 3rd but finished yesterday and processed/scanned overnight

My wifes' birthday so we took a stroll in the Botanic Gardens behind our home. I've posted a few B&W shots from that using Kodak Infrared film.

However, I also rolled up 2x 36 exp rolls of Fujifilm RD-1 and took one with me.
RD-1 is a colour negative copy film designed to be exposed using lasers. In that way, the colour can be extremely precise when copying films for movie or long term storage use.
That's great if those are your uses but, when loaded into a camera for shooting in daylight; this presents a unique problem. The film is not tungsten based and is not daylight based. That means you need to guess/experiment a bit to determine what provides the 'look' you want. It's nearly impossible to get completely 'natural' colours but that's actually part of the beauty of the film and why I love it.
The other 'thing' about this film is that it is VERY slow. Think between 0.5-1.5 iso!. On bright days, shooting hand held wide open, or close to it, is possible. However, a tripod is a very useful device with this film. That slow speed also adds interest in that it allows movement blur at normal apertures without using any ND filtration.

I bought a 2,000 foot roll of this and keep the big tin in my freezer. I roll off 100' or so at a time and put that into a daylight loader. On this occassion, I rolled up two films and it seems I'm nearly at the end of the small bulk roll. It seems my working environment rolling from the big reel to the small reel needs a look at. The amount of dust on half of one of these films looked a bit like I'd emptied the vacuum into a bag, chucked the film in, and given it a good shake up. I've spent a day cleaning up the 24 images I'm about to post (2 films).
I have a suitcase changing bag for this which I also use to load large format (4x5" and 5x7" plus cut strips for my 4x10" pinhole camera). I'll be sure to give that a vacuum and wipe out then see what I can do to reduce any static before I reload the little daylight roller.

So here ya go, my first of this series. Film 1 is from the Botanic Gardens. I was keen to see what I could do with a bit of wind movement and the odd colours tjis film throws up. I used, variably, a yellow and an orange filter. All are natural light with no flash or reflector.
In some of the shots, the colour was awful and I’ve decided to process those as B&W.

Great set! The view of the skyline from Governor's Island is gorgeous (despite the weather)!

And it's nice to see the Tamron at work - it had been my favorite lens on the A99.

TFS!

A Day Out Cycling:

Still in COVID Lockdown; we are ‘allowed’ a 5km exercise radius. Sir Barry Curtis Park starts within that 5km limit so we headed there on our eBikes for some ‘exercise’ and a few photos.

This film was again Fujifilm RD-1 but only 30 exposures long. It was the end of my little ‘bulk roll’.
These images were the really dusty ones and took a lot of time to clean up. Luckily, I have a 17" Epson 8 ink printer and lots of roll paper. There’s no way I’d print these chamically as the spotting with a camel hair brush would take days and days!

Again, some were better as B&W so I desaturated them.

Hmmm, not may film shooters so far. I suspect I may be the most prolific film shooter here.
Shot two rolls yesterday, they're drying now.
I'll be scanning today and, as per the thread heading; will post 1/3rd from each roll.
That's gonna make this thread about 90% mine so far.
Hope to see more of you join me soon.

Wasn't sure you had to "go in" explicitly. XD7 is on my desk. Just have to get some rolls of film (and unearth the Dynax 7 as well).

Oh all right, here's film 2 (scanned in the wrong order). 36 exp roll so here's my fav dozen.

Cycling Weymouth in Lockdown

Nothing spectacular here, no 'art'. Just a pleasant bike ride with my wife inside our Level 4 COVID Lockdown.
Cycling around Weymouth, avoiding as many roads as possible, and trying to link up cycle paths with alleyways.
There were quite a few people around but everyone was giving others a wide berth.

As I already had a roll of Fujifilm HR-70 microfilm loaded up in my Canon EOS10 (can’t use it in any of my Minoltas), I threw this roll of Kosmo Mono 100 in the bag as cover if I ran out.
Lenses:
Sigma AF 20-35mm f3.5-4.3 with yellow filter
Canon 50mm f1.8 with orange filter
Canon 28-80mm f3.5-5.6 with red filter
Fill flash used for the close up portrait of she who must be obeyed.

2. Shade Tree


3. She of the Master Race

So 1/3rd of each roll? What if I use my pinhole 4x5"? Is that a third of 1 (do I have to cut it?)? I guess a double dark slide is two so that's 2/3rds of a shot (I could crop to that) unless I use the Graflex back which has 6...............ahh, that's better!

In August I attended a Leica Photowalk in Tilburg.

So I took my M2 loaded with a roll of FP4+ along (together with my A7ii with only adapted Leica lenses, but that's ot really relevant for this thread)

Here's the 1/3 keepers from that roll, from which the last 6 or 7 shots were taken some time later on a bicycle ride in my area in order to finish the roll. It was exposed at iso 200 and developed in 1-shot microphen (1:1 dilution), scanned as negatives on an Epson V700 photo and converted to positive/finished in Lightroom using the Negativs Lab Pro plugin.

Well I'm in. I just shot some photos in Bulgaria this summer while I was there visiting friends and relatives. I'm waiting on them to be developed. So, I'm in for this challenge. I'll post as soon as I get the photos back and scan the photos/negatives.

Good set of images. I like #5 for its interesting perspective and #11 which technically could be said to be 'terrible' but works BECAUSE of the massive grain. That's part of the allure and joy of shooting film right; the unexpected

Ok I'm surprisingly late to this, having wrongfooted myself by not having any film in a Dynax SLR when I started the thread (I know I said it didn't matter, but I wanted to start with a Minolta AF camera).

Anyhow, here is my first film for this year's challenge - shot on a Dynax 7 using AGFAPHOTO APX400, developed in R09.

The first two here are experiments using the 'STF mode' of the Dynax 7... Basically the camera forms a shot from multiple exposures with different aperture values to achieve an STF-like effect. Of course, if your camera has such a mode that works well on a tripod, the urge is to try it in ways it was not intended for...

Bob01-01 ~ frame 6 ~ STF experiment


Bob01-02 ~ frame 7 ~ another STF Selfie (I often feel like this)


Rather more conventional (and not using STF mode)...

Bob01-03 ~ frame 8 ~ Pine Pond


Bob01-04 ~ frame 10 ~ More Pine Pond

Thanks for the comments on my Leica series. I know I should have started with a Minolta camera (I have 2, a 505 si super and a 7) but the Leica is such a joy to use and is throwing me back on how I learned to photograph, with a full manual camera and using a hand-held exposure meter. I promise to do a Minolta next to make up for this "lapse"

@Idleidolidyll, it's not really grain in #11, it's specks of rust on a cortensteel plate that give the impression of very course film grain.

@Bob J, Yes, I also think Maarten's photo is the best of the set, the nice thing about film is that you only find out you caught the right facial expression after you have developed and scanned the film, chimping doesn't work . I like your moving STF experiments, very creative, I would have never thought of trying something like this but now I do. Time to load the next film in the 7. And if you often feel like in 02 imo the best remedy is to stabilise

I'm wondering about shooting some STF motorsport with the 7 on a tripod as a car goes through a bend...

That's another interesting idea Bob. How does it move the aperture from large to small or small to large. For this idea about a car in a bend I would think large to small would work best, I'm assuming it doesn't AF between the shots, so the car might stay "somewhat" sharp that way due to the increased dof.

Interesting use of STF Bob. I use it on my Alpha 7 quite often but haven't tried it with strong subject movement (I have tried is on a windy day and it worked well).

Nice shots BTW; love the planes.

STF shoots 7 images and, as noted, varies the aperture and shutter speeds to build up a 'normal density' neg. It doesn't seem to refocus.

I was wondering whether a D series lens (8 pin) would act differently and I tried that using a 28-80 D vs a 50mm 5 pin. There didn't seem to be a difference that could be attributed to focus changes.

Something I'd be interested in seeing is STF mode when also using the Sony/Minolta STF lens: double STF. Can anyone do that and show us the result?

..well

I may have just had a disaster, or I may have got away with something...
As I was developing my latest film (Kentmere 400, R09)I had an 'incident'.

In pouring out the developer, the lid fell off the tank (but I always do it up! - not well enough obviously...).

I replaced it quickly, but light will have got in to ISO 400 film. I'm curious as to whether I've got away with anything as it was dilute developer and wash and stop went in straight after - I'm hoping that the super-long fix I gave the film will deal with any fogging... I will report back...

..never too old (or stupid) to make a mistake...

The way I understand the process is that the developer reduces silver halide that has seen light into elemental silver, this only works at higher pH values. Then you put in stop bath (acid = low pH) to stop this process and then in the next step the fixer dissolves the unreduced silver halide so a clear film with just silver grains where light fell is left behind. This step also removes any anti reflection or anti halo layer that might be present in the film. Since you quickly rinsed and stopped I'm assuming you didn't develop much of the silver halide that got light after the lid fell off I think any fogging will be imperceptible. Only if undeveloped silver halide is exposed to light a long time before fixing you will start seeing some fogging.


Btw, I never wash/rinse after pooring out the developer, I just put in the stop bath right away to stop the development as quickly as possible, but I use relatively concentrated developer, frequently stirring and shorter development times so stopping at the right time is more important than when using longer times static development with more dilute developer.

I can confirm that I seem to have got away with it. Might have one patch (residual bit of developer on the film?). It amazes me that a fogged film leader can clear so much in fixer.

I've found a few old slide films in their original package, they stayed in a dark more or less with stable temperatures - and i'm going to try to get something out of those (having a Dynax 500Si).

When it's no good - showing/scanning it for you - i'll let you know - and otherwise we'll do our best to use as much as possible (All Fuji - having 20 100ISO films in the fridge - and one in the camera 400ISO).

It's a long time ago i even shot with an analog camera - but the 28-135 is ready to fire (let's start with the WK tomorrow when they pass near Leuven...).

I regularly shoot old slide films (Velvia 50 and Velvia 100 plus a little Agfa RS50) and have lots in my fridge. Shoot at box speed. If you have a very high contrast scene, and if you can make double exposures in your camera, shoot a defocused blank image (white card, grey card, sky) at 3 stops under -exposed then shoot your main image at the correct exposure on top of it. That will help lower the contrast

While not specifically an aviation nut, I did get my Private Pilots license in my 20's. It was fun for a while but far too expensive unless you became an instructor and then used your hours to find an industry job (some friends did).

However, I have been to Warbirds Over Wanaka twice and we are booked to go again in April next year.
They put on some very realistic dog fights with explosions, noise, smoke and even a crash! The airport is up high and there's a big drop off at one end of the runway. There is always at least one plane (usually a Russian Yak) that disappears down the valley looking for all money like it dove into the ground; followed by a massive explosion, rising explosion cloud and noise.
One of my motorcycle ride groups goes there every few years and another, who has a helicopter repair business at the airport, puts on a Long Lunch for us al as well as some special guests.

In the 90's, I worked across the road from Wigram Air Base and old aircraft flew over us almost every day. Tiger Moths, de Haviland, Spitfires, Yaks, Zero's and a few jets.

No point selecting just one good shot because they all are. You obviously know your stuff!

Minolta SRT Spurious* Kentmere 400 film, R09
*Spurious because although it wears the mantle of an SRT Super, it is in fact, an SRT 101. The original top-plate was dented so I substituted one from a dead ‘Super’. The Super top-plate is a little more substantial than the one for the 101.

Panmure Basin Bike Ride

On Saturday we took a ride around the Panmure Basin: a tidal mangrove 'swamp' in Auckland harbour.
The basin has a 13km shared path for pedestrians, cyclists and scooters etc. However, it is very popular, narrow and with tight corners with no visibility around them. Therefore, a responsible cyclist can only ride about as fast as a walker to keep others, and themselves, safe.

These were shot with my Fujica G690 (58x83mm neg) rangefinder camera. The film is Kodak TriX 320 in 220 format so I had 16 shots available on the roll.

1. Fizz Boat

2. Mangrove Beach
These little beaches are bordered with a 20 metre grassy strip for the public to enjoy. Many houses have no fences in this direction so they can view the scene as an extension of their property.
The beaches are no good for swimming but are great for fishing because the mangroves provide superb habitats for marine life attracting lots of fish.
There are plenty of jetty's from which to launch a small boat.

Quite contrasty, your development, scanning or post processing?

@Bob: I have mixed feelings with your Kentmere 400 pictures. Some are really nice, but once in a few there is one with ugly grain. It is not the amount as much, it is the character (YMMV, it is just a personal opinion). Anyway, did you try Kentmere 100?

Not that much different to other B&W shots around them but they were taken in the bright of day.
As a narrow group of islands, the prevailing wind continuously sweeps our skies clear and there is rarely any smog or haze to reduce contrast. Famously harsh light compared to continental Europe where there's a slight haze most of the time (even if you don't notice it).
Frankly, I hate grey on grey images and I almost always 'print' to achieve a true black somewhere. Given these were all shot at least 4 hours after sunrise, in Spring, the shadows are deep.
Not what I'd call art, just a set of shots recording a bike ride in the bright sun

No offence taken, I'm grumpy and medicated in the mornings
It's only 7.40am in your tomorrow here and I woke up in pain again.

But the quality of light comment is true. I've lived in Europe, China, North America and noted the difference in light most of the time. After living in the UK for 4 years in my youth, I was blown away by the harsh clear skies of NZ when I got home.

I think I was trying to lift the shadows too much.
The Kentmere is fairly good value - I think it is the same basic stock at Agfaphoto APX400. I've not tried the 100...

One of the big benefits of Kentmere is that it dries veryflat - makes scanning much easier..

It supposedly also is the same as Rollei RPX 100 and Fotoimpex CHM-100. And yes, it is good value.

Just had a few films developed: all a bit different.

1.Sue on the Otara Cycle Path
Fujifilm Eterna RD-1 copy film. iso 1.5.
Designed to be exposed with lasers and is neither daylight nor Tungsten balanced. It's a bit of a lottery and sometimes throws up close to 'normal' images, other times more like colour infra-red. This time the latter.

I've shot a few rolls of film in my Minolta over the past week. One is to be collected today but here's the first (yes, pics are on other threads).

All shot with my Minolta Alpha 7 on Ilford XP2 film.

I never know just what Fujifilm Eterna RD-1 will throw up at me. Because of the different layer order and it's intent to be exposed by laser; various qualities of daylight can drastically affect the colour palette.

I shot these while scootering around Auckland City Centre using my Minolta Alpha 7. When i'm on the little eScooter, I usually limit myself to one or two lenses. This time just the 24 and 50mm.

What I like about #8 is the new Mercedes cabriolet and the mirror is looking back with an old Mercedes cabriolet. Nice

I focused on garbage and the mirror (or actually such a large metal ball)

I'm planning tomorrow to post the best 1/3 of a roll I have just developed in the Lab-Box which is the first time of using it. (I have written a post of my first experience with it in the https://www.dyxum.com/dforum/a-guide-to-home-bw-developing_topic37704_post1677421.html#1677421 - Home Developing thread).

Fingers crossed and we can re-start this challenge for 2022

As hoped I have managed to digitise all 36 frames using the Sony FE 90mm f2.8 Macro G on a7RivA. Loaded them into Lightroom, reversed them horizontally to bring them back to the correct way round and performed a little magic with Negative Lab Pro. It has been a while since I did this and took a bit of recalling, but in the end I am pleased with the outcome.

36 images, best 1/3 = 12. Here are the first four, all taken in Spalding in Oct or Nov 2021:

Thanks, Brian - that seems to have worked well as a combination. It reminds me that I'd like to get Duxford this year as well!

I got some decent light in S Wales today, but I haven't finished the roll yet. Some more shots tomorrow, I hope.

I have been testing a Rollei 35 S with a roll of film before releasing it for sale in a local charity shop.

https://flic.kr/p/2mXcmCs">
https://flic.kr/p/2mXcmCs - Rollei 35 S

A lovely camera, beautifully engineered to be small and take great 35mm pictures. It has manual focus (no rangefinder) and exposure is set when the camera is away from the eye, no indicator in the viewfinder.

Here are my one-third keepers from the roll, developed and scanned by Snappy Snaps. The film is Kodak Color Plus, with an expiry date in February 2010.

And we are off for 2022. Thank you for joining in Howard and seeky (looking forwards to more from you )

Bob, I know you are busy but are you planning to show us more from your vast range of film machines? I especially like your information about how you develop your various films, and printing over sprockets is something I have yet to attempt.

When I digitise my negatives by aiming a macro lens at them clamped in a digitizer (!) on a usb light mat I have thought about including the sprockets, even though there are no images in that area. But I didn't as it looked a bit corny. And I can always add a rebate in pp

The Rollei looks to be in fine fettle Howard - can you resist the temptation to add it to your collection?


Posted By: Howard_S
Date Posted: 17 January 2022 at 19:04
Many thanks, Brian and Phil. I plan to do more films this year. And yes, Phil, that Rollei is tempting, but I have more than enough film cameras!

Today's temptation at an Oxfam shop was an Asahi Pentax 6x7 SLR with 3 lenses and a teleconverter - even more expensive!

My last roll was taken on the Leica M2 so to get back to the Minolta family I have just secured a Minolta Autocord. It was from a dealer with a 3 month warranty and has had a full CLA and new seals throughout, and for its age looks pretty good with no obvious damage or defects cosmetically.



I already have a Microcord (after having borrowed Bob J's for a while, thanks Bob) but although I really would like a Rolleiflex (maybe one day) various Internet reviews describe the Minolta TLR as almost as good at 10% of the cost. Should arrive early next week and I have a roll of 120 Ilford HP5 plus ready for it. As they say, watch this space.....

Nearly forgot, the Lab-Box kit I successfully used for my last roll of 35mm also includes the module for 120 film so I should be able to develop myself, in daylight, without the dark bag. Great.

Well done - I have an Autocord (and indeed slightly faulty Yashicamat), and I really ought to be using it more. It was I think my declared intention to use it in the last challenge, and as I failed to do so I should work that in to this year’s challenge.

I find using the TLR really slows me down, in a good way, making me take more time to take the pictures. I look forward to seeing your results.
