Treeline ..This shot now would have looked marginally interesting in color, I think; the sunlight was golden and the field a bleak tan and dark green.

Backsippor

Whiskers

Cat

ADub128: The Ilford shots are wonderful. The leaning palms photo is my favorite. Also like the flower (great tones), bridge and Forest Lawn Hollywood. Nice wheels on the Bronco!

neilt3: Thanks for your thoughts on filters. I guess I need to start using them. Some friends and I were discussing the issue of haze when using long focal lengths here in the mountains shooting landscapes. We have a blend of sulfuric acid and VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). During dry spells it can be harsh!

Phil: Great shots. I really like the red box and the castle is my favorite. What film are these shot on? If it was mentioned, I missed it. The Sealed Knot shots are nice, they remind me of the Civil War reenactments where I grew up. You shot these with a Dynax 60, which is a Maxxum 70 for me. It's really the only other body I want right now, with both 7 and 9 being just a little out of reach.

Kilkry: I like the film grain here, especially in the Snowmobiles photo. Also like Box=Cat, Chili Fruits, the textures in the Lime photo. Pollen almost looks like spider webs. Treeline is my favorite.

I just got back 5 rolls from the lab, one being from a Maxxum 5. It's nice to have a friend there, I get a small discount!

@Hike Pics ... thanks for the feedback! Definitely fun to shoot that old camera.

@Kilkry ... many fun shots in your set. Some comments:

-- I have an Aeropress too, but don't use it that often anymore. Too much work to make a single cup of coffee. I'm mostly pour over nowadays.

-- I like the patterns in Malaren too. I'll have to Google where that is now.

-- I enjoy shots like Snowmobiles because our winters here in southern California never look like that unless you are high up in our mountains.

-- Cat in the Box is fun too, and I like the Treeline shot.

-- In Pinpoint, what is that artifact in the upper left part of the image?

@All ... I'm shooting a roll of color at the moment. With luck, I post some of these shots in the next month or so. Film is definitely not instant!

Hike: Thanks! Looking forward to your newly developed rolls. Film ISO grain can look ok or blotchy depending on scanning/processing, I think it looks at least ok here.

ADub: Comments are appreciated. As for coffee, there's certainly a wide range of preparation complexities and lengths. The shadow in the Pinpoint shot is expletives in the dark and me force encircling the spindle with the rest of the film (it got snagged on the spindle somehow, could not fix without seeing) and then stuffing it into the development container : P I lost perhaps a third of the shots. Will be nice to see your color shots.

Kilkry ... sorry to hear you ran into processing troubles! I haven't processed my own film in decades. Does Dyxum have a spot to discuss off-topic subjects like coffee brewing methods?

ADub: We could try in open Talk : ) There was some discussion in the coffe theme thread too I think. Might include caffenol..

I'll try to provide some feedback before the week is over.

@mariuszlo ... great shots. The interior of Castle Williams, sail boats, and the guys fishing are my favorites.

I have an XE-7 too, but the meter is really wonky. It looks like your meter works very well still..

I love that my XE-7 because I used it when I was in high school through college. Aperture priority was so easy to use! Either bokeh or sharp background by twisting the aperture on the lens. I prefer that to using a thumbwheel or index finger to adjust things nowadays. I think Fuji X-mount has aperture controls on the lens ... one reason to switch, right?

Thank you for your comment:)
Yes, my XE-7 is in perfect condition, light meter too. I still have XE-5 and there is a light meter with a dancing needle and I'm going to send it for repair.

Yes, they are beautiful and very good cameras. I often run them without a film just for the pleasure of hearing the shutter and advancing sounds.

Yes, I should take my XE-7 in for a quick look. There's an old timer here in LA who does repairs. Maybe he has the magic touch.

Agree, I love the build quality of these old cameras. They still work 40+ years later. Incredible.

Took me some time to get these images scanned properly. All images shot with Minolta Dynax 7 and different lenses: Sigma Art F/4 24-105mm, Minolta AF F/2.0 100mm, Minolta AF F/8 500mm. Film used: Kodak Tri-X 400 and T-Max 400.

First, three night photographs from Hamburg's warehouse district:
#1 Water castle



#2 Warehouse district



#3 Warehouse district, canal



#4 At the Hamburg hotel


The next four photographs are taken at Potsdam and Berlin.
#5 Ready for breakfast



#6 No passengers in this bus



#7 Family members (smartphone included)



#8 I think it was a bad idea to start a bike repair shop


Thank you for viewing! C&C always welcome!

pg1
Howard: Kind of retro and appealing color, I particularly enjoyed HS-1-4 and and 1-6 and 1-7. Some contrasty b&w further down, of note 2-5 and 2-8.

Hike: Some more modern looking film here, 15 in particular looks almost digital : ) Nice bokeh and cats in 08 and combination in 11 of the window frame, sunlit refection adn the chandelier that is probably hanging inside.

Alan: Interesting portraits, especially the first one wth the rock wall, metal gate and pine background.

pg2
4paul: Well caught hawk; pretty street grafitti. Good dynamism in the 5 dog walkers shot.

pg3
Marius:
I like the initial wide of bay/canal. The Unisphere shot has nice dramatic lighting and the pastels of the Jersey City from Liberty State Park is appealing. The macro shot looks almost tasty and the Wtc shot is cool.

Hike: I quite like the chains shot. Rather gloomy, all ) Have not tried that c41 bw film.

pg4
Marius: Good portrait, thoughtful pose, and well done black and white in the Oculus shot.I was going to write that I quite liked the b&w of all the shots and I see it was xp2. Lovely film (good eye too ; )

Miranda F:
For some reason these holiday resort retro color shots remind me of an earlier Bond movie.

Pg5
Miranda F: I like these four shots, warm and attractive colors.

ADubs: Neat minimalism in Two Palm Trees. Nice longer shutter-shot of the Fatburger place.

pg 6
Fred: I agree with Hike regarding the color. Nice bokeh in 7 and light in 8.

ADubs: Tall Palms with LA Skyline is a great shot, the palm trees look as if they are lounging. Cute french bulldog.

Pg 7
Phil Wood:
Interesting re-enactment scenes, strong colors that I've come to associate with film.

Solus updated qt and Digikam (to 6) a week or two back which made the editor function properly again. It's a nice program for organizing images and converting scanned negatives. Have started using tags for the first time ever, nice logical structure, writes to exif.

Waldo posth: Really nice long exposures. Good shallow-dof shot of the breakfast vase. I like "Family Members" : )
