OM system master race
actually, my girlfriend has that camera, and it's pretty decent. the body is mostly plastic so it's really lightweight, i'm pretty sure it weighs less than a digital rebel body.
slightly disconcerting that even the lens mount is plastic though, but that's just me
Going out tomorrow, might just be getting me a Rolleiflex with Zeiss lens. If not a Mamiya RB 64.
Found a fullmetal leica going for $295 but some of it are rusted and I like leica with leathers better. Also found Voigtlander Vito and Bessa for $500.
I want to get a medium format though, and I fell in love with the Rollei since the first time I got my hands on it. But there are many choices and I'll think about them later.
got some film back today! shots from my minolta look amazing, shots from my canon had light leaks
i sold the minolta :(
shooting myself in the foot right now, seriously so upset. i need a new AE-1 body, going to see if my mom's ftb works. but man was it disappointing to know the camera i sold worked perfectly and the one i kept hardly works at all :c
can you do anything to just re-seal it to avoid leaks?
possibly. but i have two ae-1s, i think i just threaded one of them wrong and the foam on my ftb is good. just going to have to get some goodwill rolls of film to test the cameras out.
also i have a roll of holga film in my ae-1 right now. going to have to steal another roll from urban lol ;(
For 30 bucks. Grabbed myself a couple of Yashicaflexes. One of them looks as good as dead and the other seems to have a bit of a chance to live. Might just end up selling both of them for collectibles though.
Oh yeah. Also bought 10 rolls of Ektar 100.
Expecting at least 3,000 notes on this bad boy
My second roll of film ever. (first one shot 2 years ago, it was utter crap)
I'm kinda happy with this. (they are in order of preference from top to bottom)
<br> by Emanuele Monaco, you know where.
Sorry... by Emanuele Monaco, yep.
Run over by Emanuele Monaco, guess where!
Double sky by Emanuele Monaco, on the internet, crazy I know.
Corruption by Emanuele Monaco, more at 11.
Any thoughts? C&C?
(the last one looks/is a bit blurry I know and no it's not the lens it was the line that was wonky )
God damn, I went in today to go and develop my first roll.
It's safe to say that it was a disaster, someone put the light on in the other room and the light shone under the door and I had a great black space closer to the end of my strip, some pictures looked kind of underexposed and now I just have to wait and see if the dial on my camera for the ISO selection wasn't lying to me. Needless to say I had a fun times!
Thanks for the feel, Dai.
Oh fuck. I've forgotten that 10 rolls of my Ektar was in the bag that a checked into cargo on my flight home.
Shit, I hope its safe. Cause that is about $50 worth of films.
Gotta love the smell of 120films. Which mine is confirmed dead thanks to x-ray.
just out of interest, how difficult/easy would it be to get into making your own black and white prints?
Got some photos to post now from various times.

Theres alot more to post but I'll post them all later
Then some strings and clips to hang the prints while they dry.
In it self it shouldn't be too hard you just need those things and some practice.
My dad used to do it, we just found some old prints he did and they were quite nice actually.
By the way is 49£ shipped a good price for 10 rolls of Portra 400 120?
just found an olympus om-1 with a 50mm 1.4 at the pawnshop by me for $40, so i bought it. should i keep it or sell it? this is the focal length i'd use most on my canon anyways, so it would be a good intermediate camera until i get a working one.
holy shit though the viewfinder is massive
I once took the same ISO 160 rolls 4 times through the xrays at airports and they came out 100% fine.
my only problem with it is the dented filter ring on the lens, which means no ND filter, so i can't shoot wide open in the day :(
Japanese airports give warning to passengers that anything ISO400 and above will be damaged by scanners. It might still work but I'm pretty sure the pictures wont be pretty. I don't really mind though, as my TLR decided to get stuck and be inoperable.
English security try to convince me every time that scanners do nothing to film, they'll never check it over by hand.
a 30 year old scanner in the glasgow transport museum says it's safe upto 1600ASA.
hey I could swear i've got an old slr just like that somewhere, what company is that one?
(om system master race)
yeah definitely had one of them, but the lenses wouldn't fit my pentax I guess
pretty sure I had it + couple lenses somewhere in the shed
also have a pentax mz-5, which is alright I suppose
yeah guys it's not mine, i have to shoot one roll and then give it up
Told my mate I would be picking up an Nikon F100 when my next student loan comes in. When I said film he thought filming as in movie making, I linked him a photo of an Ektar 100 roll and he writes: "Is Kodak even around still?"
so my canon FTb doesn't work, battery won't on it for some reason, tried a couple different ones.
but i think my other AE-1P works, i got it to wind and now i just have to develop the roll i shot. hoping for a winner there!
so as it turns out I got 2 olympuses, om1 and om10
also got a bunch of other cameras I wanna mess around with, but film's not exactly cheap...(in the long run, different roll for each camera and shit)
got a roll of ilford fp4 sitting in some homemade parodinal (paracetemol + sodium hydroxide) at a dilution of 1:100, stand developing for an hour. should be interesting.
pulled them outta the tank, holy shit they're contrasty.
Just took my Pentax, loaded with ilfiord delta 400, with me on an hour long walk. It had 25 shots on it already so I wanted to fill it up. When I got to shot 36, I could keep on shooting as if it wasn't full. So I decided to rewind it and it only took one full turn to get it back in its canister again.
