My first "field" photo shooting, I went to a low transited street with a nice view of my favourite building around and I "planted" this:
Medalist II + Film back holder + Extension unit + Rada film holder.
All focusing has been done through ground glass and an LCD Viewfinder magnifier. Film Kodak Trix-x pan ASA 320 expired 1988 shot as ASA 40.
Light metering with the extension unit was adding 1 stop to the first metering with ASA 40.
This shooting was very useful, the aim was to test the Rada and it works fine, no light leaks at all.
Test done! Only one minus, the winding has to be done turning (tight) inwards, happened at home that winding not this way the roll can loose the inner screw, I could fix it putting the holder in my dark "room" bag, fixing it and I continued shooting.
Second was to test Telek -2 and Telek -4 lenses, only I could do photos with the Telek -2 and one extension unit attached. Telek -4 and two extension units could not focus infinite or any other thing, I guess I need the third extension unit or a Telek -3.
Normal view, Rada 6x9 film holder.
Plus Telek -2 and one extension unit.
Plus yellow k1 filter.
At home was time to test Portra lenses,
Last shot, no wife at home, the commode is invaded of ongoing projects. Portra +3, not 100% focused as I wanted.
So test successful and I have already a close-up (macro) camera 6x9, I will take the Telek -3 and another extension unit when they show up.
One missed test was a portrait with the Telek, I want that effect of very far away background from the subject, next time.
Thank you for watching.
