Vitessa, First Roll

Postby scott » Sun Jun 18, 2017 9:26 pm

Hi all -

The scanner did a pretty good job pulling images off the thin negatives off the first roll from the Vitessa, but they dried pretty well and weren't as bad as I first thought. Pretty much just snapshots, but a few for your perusal:

The lighting was pretty harsh for all of these, so I'm a little underwhelmed so far. I have a trip coming up and would like to bring this; I need to do some more testing before then to make sure it's up to the task...

Scott, the first one does not load, but the other three seem o.k. to me. Maybe a stop under, but that could be the scan. Sharpness is very good.

All load for me, FWIW. As Graham said, a bit underexposed, but not bad otherwise.

Thanks guys. I think I'm going to fettle the shutter a little more, but I have a roll of TMax 100 ready to go. Need to order some Adonal or HC-110 today...

It's amazing what you can scan these days, and still get a good image. It also helps when it's a good composition, like yours are, Scott. I think the camera is working just fine. Once you get some good developer, you can tune some of that harshness out.

You have a keeper in that Vitessa, the lens seems very sharp. I like the Giraffes couple.
