Thanks, seems ages ago that I exposed that film. I'm still on my second and don't know how many frames are left since the frame counter is broken.

mariuszlo, fine photos of parts of NYC I'd not seen before. I knew nothing of Governors Island, just looked it up on wikipedia.

waldo_posth, impressive set of well composed contrasty images though my favourite is #5 which is the least contrasty! Great caption for #8.

@waldo_posth ... great set of pictures. Two rolls of film, so I should be seeing more pictures? I thought we were sticking to a 1/3 keepers rule.

I love the late night Hamburg shots. So serene there. What time were these taken? I think I see one person in the distance in the Water Castle shot.

The hotel hallway shots always remind me of looking down an elevator shaft. Ha. This could be anywhere in the world, but the "exit" sign is a telltale that this is not the U.S.

The images through window panes (5 and 6) feel like double exposures. The extra details make me want to investigate the picture for a little longer. That breakfast table is very inviting!

The scooter in 7 is the best scooter design in the world! I have an adult-sized version. They are so easy to ride. I don't understand why we need motorized ones nowadays. Are motorized ones popular in the big European cities? They are all over town here.

A bit late to the party but here are my results:

All shot with Minolta X-700 and Kodak Color Plus 200. Unfortunately there is a lightleak (or something else) creating a bright section on the left side of the pictures - but only on some of them.

#1

Minolta MD 70-210/4

#2

Minolta MD 24-50/4

#3

Minolta MD 70-210/4

#4

Minolta MD 24-50/4

Mark Twain is on Dyxum?! Yes, that light leak is only noticeable in a few of the shots. Great landscapes! So different from southern California.

I had the opportunity to run a film through a Minox 35 ML to check it was still working OK.


Minox 35 ML

Itís in very good condition, and once I had tracked down the batteries and found a roll of old film (2010 Kodak Color Plus 200) I was ready to go.

The Minox can be used in aperture priority or programmed modes. Focusing is manual by estimating the distance between the camera and the subject.

Processing and scanning was done by Oxfordís branch of Snappy Snaps.

All photos came out and I got 39 photos on the roll, including three throwaway test shots. That means I had to choose 13 from the full set.

1

Art & Cake
This might have been a fourth test shot, but it works a bit.

2

Lower Heyford church

The rest of the photos become a meander through some of Oxford's tourist hotspots.

3

Merton College

4

The High

The Minotar is a lovely little lens - is the ML as much of a pig to load as the EL?

I've never loaded any Minox before this one, so I don't know. I had no problems.

The film was 'fresh' out of an unopened box, but the guy at Snappy Snaps said there was a problem getting the film out of the cannister - a 'zigzag kink' had occured. Nevertheless there's no damage on the scanned negatives and the negs look ok in the sleeves.

Howard, fantastic set! That Minox takes great pics, in the hands of a great photographer, of course. I recently finished a color roll (first one in a very long time) and will post later. I only got 33 shots out of it for some reason. My Maxxum 9 auto-rewound it. Very weird.

Also weird to see the homeless tent in Oxford. Los Angeles has blocks worth of tent cities unfortunately ... very sad to see.

Another opportunity to test a film camera - this time a Rolleiflex Automat 6x6 K4B with Carl Zeiss Tessar 1:3.5 75mm lens.



I had a roll of expired (2012) Velvia 100 film and for better or worse I decided to use a NEX-7 with 35mm f2.8 lens and centre-weighted metering to determing exposure on the Rolleiflex. The film was lab developed and scanned.

In a 12-exposure roll there are four to be selected according to the one-third keepers rule:

1


2


3


4


Thanks for looking again!
