1963 Jupiter 3 - color shots
 
I'd heard Sonnars were good for color, so shot a roll of Velvia 50 through my new Jupiter 3. The shots were amazing, but I don't have any scanned yet. So I took a walk with the G1 at sunset to try it on that body.

I'll post some Velvia shots when I can scan them.

One with Velvia 50. (poor scan, sharper in print)

This one looks great. Hope to see more.
I have never used color with my Canon 50/1.5 yet, but I'll try.

Thanks. I think I'm going to compare the Jupiter 3 to my Canon 1.5 this weekend. Here are another two on Velvia 50.

Sorry I missed this when first started. I believe 63 was a good year for Jupiter 3 glass. Mine is a 63. After shimming it's a near favorite lens. It would be interesting to compare serial #'s.

Not too ugly... :D

Indeed interesting Greg; would you like to start a separate thread for the serials?

Sorry, I didn't see this sooner. I went to get my J-3 for the serial # & low & behold it's not a 63 at all but a N6002015. All this time I thought it was a 63? Now I'm scratching my head how I came up with the year 63.:eek: Loosing my mind. Anyhow early 60 models are good.:)

goamules 02-05-2012 12:28

I totally agree, it seems the early 60s ones are usually good. I'm very happy with my 63.

I put the J-3 on an extender this morning to shot these aloe vera flower buds:

Great shot Garrett, I really like what you can get from flowers with a J3, here's another one, shot with the '61 J3:

goamules 03-24-2012 05:42

Good shot a the iconic Tulip Ron! I agree about J-3s and flowers.

Ron (Netherlands) 03-25-2012 12:11

Here is something completely different. Shot yesterday night (24 march) at the On the Run tour of McCartney - the J3 is also draws very nice for these 'night shots':

indeed very nice pictures from Russia where the lens was made, the pictures capture the true Russian winter atmosphere for me...

Last week I got another J3 from Russia, one from 1956. I could test it last weekend at some flower arrangements when visiting mother at Easter....the sun was shining very low in her window late afternoon capturing the flowers. I took this one with the lens at f 2 or f 2.8.

I took my 1973 J-3 to a wedding and got some great shots. It's a never-fail lens for me now.
