I got a Fujica Half 1.9 half-format/half-frame camera the other day (pictured above) and got the test roll back today. It seems to be working nice. Half-format/half-frame basically means that you get two images for every one from a regular 35mm camera (on a 36 frame roll you get 72 pics aso). I like it! Check a couple of the images from the test roll below. My Fujica Half set on flickr is here (with some more images from the test roll in it).
I recently found a bunch of films that had been sitting in a box in the attic (several attics actually) since the mid 80s and I thought I’d put one through the Yashica Electro. The result was kinda lo-fi. Well… very lo-fi. Bleached out colors, bright yellow dots (no idea what’s up with that) & and grainy as all hell. Still, I like how it came out. This film in particular was an Agfa Chrome CT200, that’s a slide film for those that don’t know. I got one more of those plus a couple others to try out at a later date.
For more dots go to 591 Photography!
Here’s some photos from Reclaim Photography #5 (the flickr set is here where you can check out all of them). I also took three rolls of film (two 120 & one 135), so there might be some additions later on in the week.
Edit… Added one photo taken with my Rolleicord+Portra 400 & two taken with the Yashica Electro+Ektar 100 (the three pics at the top). There’s a couple more in the set; link above.
I got a couple of sets up on 591 this last week or so. First one is a set of photos from a closed down factory here in Stockholm entitled Eat Sleep Burn. The second set consists of b/w street shots from this month, it’s entitled September. Click the pics to go to 591 and check them out…
Eat Sleep Burn
Got my Rolleicord III (Type II) in the mail today..! It was manufactured 1952-53 and has a 75mm Xenar f/3.5-f/22 taking lens (4 elements) and a 75mm f/3.2 viewing lens with a Compur Rapid shutter (1-1/500s + B).
Really looking forward to testing this little box out. I’ve already put a test roll in it and it’s ready to rock; weather sucks today tho, but I might still go out and shoot. Check the pics of it below (click for bigger as usual).
