Test of Leica IIIf

Last month it was time to test the Leica IIIf I recently purchased as it was made the same year I was born. I mounted a Yashikor 5cm 1:2.8, and loaded the camera with Kodak Tri-X 400. There are two issues. This is the first one. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49089622326_134bd28935_c.jpg Buildi...

Re: Red Oktober 2019

Here are the second set of photos from Red Oktober. They are more random in nature. Still Zorki-1e, Jupiter-8 50/2, on Ilford FP4+. Yes, you can get an image of the rear of your lens cap, but only if you are using a vented hood https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49073985656_27fcf77e69_c.jpg Lens Ca...

Re: Ilford plate R.10

I need 4x5 plate holders... besides Chamonix and the new 3D ones, what options are over there? The one I got is wooden, and I haven't checked it out yet in the camera but it looks like it should work okay. It appears to be a later design. I see a lot of holders for sale that are being marketed as a...

Red Oktober 2019

I guess I forgot to post a heads up for this years Red Oktober submissions. Almost forgot to take some myself. This year I used the Zorki-1e with a Jupiter-8 50/2 on Ilford FP4+. I think that lens will now permanently live on the Z-1e. Here is the best shot from the roll composition wise, as I lucke...

Re: Ilford plate R.10

Don't have any plates yet, but did manage to score a two-plate holder for the Graflex.

Re: Americanetz v Rossii.

I lost my Speed Graphic a long time ago (long story), Alex, so I don't have much to tell you about it. The Crown Special I had I only did some Polaroids with it before it was sold in the auction, and those didn't come out very good. But that was a long time ago and I'm now more enlightened in the wa...

Re: Americanetz v Rossii.

Cool! There are some limited movements you can do with the camera, Alex. The front standard has rise, and you can drop the front bed too (comes in handy when using a wide angle lens).
