It is indeed! I reckon if you can get a good lens for it, it will be a cracking little slr!
Ah, that is close to awesome.
Scans back from Filmdev :)
Rolleicord VB and Ektar 100 / Portra 100
Those images came out great. How do you find setting the exposure on the rolleicord, do you use an external light meter?
Never, unless I'm shooting slide (and I still often fuck it up).
I usually err on the side of over exposure. Portra will easily accommodate 3 stops over as will Ektar. My understanding is actual overexposure of good quality negative film is pretty hard to do. https://www.35mmc.com/02/05/2016/overexposure-latitude/
Ricoh R1 + Kodak Color Plus
Great article; good job I've got a few roles to experiment with!
If you do two posts with 3 attachments each they display full - think the max is 5.
More from the Rollei
these are brilliant; the 4th one reminds me tangentially of stephen pippin
@mi7rennie ..some really beautiful ones once again. Also they look sharper compared to your earlier Rollei shots, are you doing something different?
@YeahNerdz nice vibe in these..
Yeah, I shoot F8 a lot now!
@hoefla i usually only post 5, i have removed one now, thanks for the heads up.
@user83744 Thanks, i see why it would remind you of.
@NotSafeForSalad Thank you, cant go wrong with the look and feel of cheap kodak color.
Ive said it up thread, but I love my Dynax 5.
I would recommend it to anyone.
I was flicking through some pictures and reckon the original kit lens that came with it is better than I remember. I tended to the 50mm prime but theres a wealth of cheap lenses, the telephoto minolta lenses were amazing, Ive leant mine to my brother in law who is using it on his full frame sony.
Moody Jesus is hella moody.
Any tips/recommendations on buyin my first rangefinder?
The top one especially is amazing. But all good.
You really have a fantastic eye, my favourites you post are usually your out and about portraits.
Yashica electro 35, one of the newer ones that meter up to 1000iso (GTN? I think?) They're great cameras and cost next to nothing.
(Also for future reference we have a "what gear should I buy" thread for this kinda thing!)
Thank you very much, I do love using the Rollei and very much looking forward to receiving the Leica M4 back and shooting lots of film!
Sent my OM1 and OM4 off for service. Turns out they both needed quite a lot of work so opted to just get the OM1 done - figured a reliable mechanical camera is probably a better bet in the long run. And it better be a long run for £230 all done(!).
Budget? Will be kinda key here. Also, 35mm or 120? Fixed or interchangeable lens?
Olympus mjuI + expired Jessops 200
Got my first ever roll of film back today, from the Zenit. Pretty please as I wasn't 100% that the camera was working.
