Kodak Medalist II- Victory Day 2018

Postby alexvaras » Sat May 12, 2018 1:03 pm

I already said this day was coming :) I took with me 4 rolls re-spooled on 620, finally I shot only 2, I hoped to meet more vets on the streets but the usual place when they meet old pals was closed this year (invitation was needed), so I met with a friend near a park and I was lucky to find a group from the Suvorov Military School there, here are 8 pictures of my wandering through Moscow that day.

This next I need to do it again, I want more DOF, maybe with ASA400, sunny and f32?

I wanted to focus more near but the way medalist focusing couldn't know which tulip I was targeting... Zone focus would worked I guess.

Too many people is having a hard time lately...

My tiff has better sharpness than the one in flicker. This was an infinity focus test.
Image

And this was as an attempt of interior shooting, overexposed and focus on the wall... I had very few light and I think I misread the EV, I used a tripod, but the Medalist II has the insert of the external cable for shutter release on the Medalist lens, so Im not sure at all the shot was no completely still when it was exposed.

Thank you for watching and I hope you enjoyed the trip :)

Many fine images there, Alex. With more practice you'll get more keepers. Some cameras take longer to get used to.

Very good start, Alex, and thanks for the nice Moscow documentary. You will get used to focusing techniques, just persevere on it.
The last one does not have movement, just focus is on the wall and DOF is very narrow. The focused zone is sharp.
