@ Chris: good to see you here. #4 has a great atmosphere.

I shot a first role on my recent acquisition: Minolta Autocord.
Never used 6 x 6 before. I hope to show some of the results here soon.


Thank you Daraso; very pleased to be here

I am looking forward to seeing how you get on with the Autocord and how you find it?? I am considering trying medium format film one day so will be following your experiences - keep us all posted!!

Best Regards,

Chris

I'll ditto your remarks: I, too, am very interested in seeing your results with the Minolta autocord. I keep seeing those rolls of 120 winking at me every time I go to the lab to get my lowly 35mm film processed!

Number 6 - nice shots! I like the 1st the best.

Here are some more from my weekend in Picardie

Getting her bib on (fuji pro 400)





Grasses for MiPr (ektar 100)





Alt Poppy shot (ektar 100)






Ryan's namesake (fuji 400, I think)






Bebelle (fuji pro 400)






Louise Portrait alt (fuji pro 400)






Cari (fuji pro 400)

Yeah, I love using film. A lot of it has to do with the camera - I just love using the x-700, such a fun camera to use! And when I go on a weekend trip like that I can pack: 28/3.5, 35/1.8, 50/1.7, 80/2 and 135/2.8 in about the same space my 135/1.8 takes up! (Well, slight exaggeration but you know!)

Brian,

A lovely selection of images and nice colours. The black and whites are fantastic as well!

I obtained an x700 a couple of months ago but have not played with it yet as I am spending too much time with a SRT 101b right now!!

Keep 'em film pics coming folks!

Kind regards,

Chris

Good shots Chris. A bit of a decisive moment in #1 and #3 is a really nice and crisp photo. Which lens(es) did you use?

Brian: great series of life a la campagne!

OK, my first Autocord shots. This is the camera itself, a real beauty:



And this is a nice introduction to the camera.

Just a few test shots. Film: Portra 400. Scanned with Nikon 9000. Raw scan with Silverfast and further processing with Photoshop and Nik Viveza.

That Rokkor 75/3.5 is an excellent lens!

It's a lovely camera!

Is it relatively easy to get films and get these developed ..?

Yes, there is a good supply of 120 film. And I bring the films to a shop in the Hague that develops these films. Ready the next day.

Darosa,

Some gorgeous early shots by you and the Autocord!! Very nice indeed; how fortunate you can get the film turned around in such short time - I have to wait at least 7 working days for 35mm!

Re your question lenses - if I recall I used the Rokkor 35mm and 50mm lenses that day.

Looking forward to more of your Autocord work!

Best regards,

Chris
