I'm having an... interesting, not to mention expensive week. While working through a nasty cold and high fever, I found a nice medium format camera on a Dutch second hand site.

Someone was selling a Bronica ETRS with waist level finder, 120 back and EII 75mm 2.8 lens for a fair price. Because of the rising price of 35mm here - just as expensive if not more so then roll film - I figured I might as well give 120 a go. I'm hoping to get the camera tomorrow and I just recieved 5 rolls of Velvia 100 RVP.

I was in a testing mood and ordered three b&w films just as test rolls: They should be in the mail next week.
Ilford PAN F 50
Never shot this slow film but in sommer it should give good results.

My fastest film was Ilford HP5+ shot @1600 until now. I will give take some available light images @3200 and compare the results against the HP5+ I already know.
Will try an Ilford DELTA 3200 and a Kodak T-MAX 3200.

Your advices are welcome!

Ive had both PanF and 3200 shot an processed at a lab and it was good! PanF is very contrasty. The TMAX is pretty low contrast but sharp! Ritz made 8x10s from 35mm tmax3200 and they l

Picked up a non-working Rolleiflex 3.5 E for $50. All the issues turned out to be trivial and after a little tinkering around inside it's now fully operational (apart from the meter). My blog post about it:

Congrats! Nothing quite like fixing your own stuff. Last february I received a free Minox 35 with flash and all assorted bits. That one had a non-functioning shutter. Fixed it with an easy repair and it's still working

I just bought a factory repaint M2 black paint.

I am feeling a bit dizzy right now, waiting for the mail.
I didn't want to buy yet another camera, but when I saw this one in the classifieds, It was love on first sight …

Just last week:

1. 10 rolls of Portra 400.
2. 5 rolls of Tmax P3200.
3. 5 rolls of Tri X.

And from the fine folks at Precision Camera:

4. A black Leica M9P (took advantage of their offer to RFF members).

Cheers,

Antonio

Just an example of how harmful "window shopping" could be.
Went out for a walk, and ended up coming home with a Noct-Nikkor 58mm f1.2.
Spent the whole evening trying it out. It's a beaut!

Black M2's rock! Nobbylon has painted mine, it's hard as a nail and I like it so much I've sold my M3 in it's original chrome guise, and am selling the BP M3 parts as well

I've seen that M2 online and it's a real looker, Dirk! Congrats!

Just received 10x rolls of Kodak Tri-X from Freestyle's Tri-X promotion.

Also hit the purchase button on a beautiful EX Nikon F w/ FTN finder from KEH, including:

-35/2.8 Nippon Kogaku
-50/2 Nippon Kogaku
-105/2.5 Nippon Kogaku

All lenses with their original early front and rear caps and hoods.

Can't wait! I sold my Nikon F about three years ago and have regretted it ever since.

I've gone a bit crazy lately. Last weekend it was a Zuiko 200mm f/4. Today a Canon FD 135mm f/2. I don't even have a body for it. Weird GAS...

You're right on the Nikon F.
I've tried other challenger SLRs around the same era, Canon F1 (even though it's really a 70s camera) being one of them, but somehow the difference is just there. I enjoyed shooting the F much more than everything else. I'd say its on par with Leica's M2/M3 in terms of sheer enjoyment.

Did you get the Snapshot Skopar or the Color Skopar? In either case, excellent optics!

I got the Color Skopar. Is it essentially the same lens with different mounts? I'm really excited to use it.

Just bought an old Serenar 35 3.5 for less than $150 on that one auction site. I've been longing for a 35 since I bought my Bessas, and for the price I couldn't help but buy my serenar 50 1.8 a matching friend. Can't wait!

35mm Nokton f1.2 ver. 2.

I shot with it all weekend. Looks to be great for low light, but I don't think my 35mm Summicron ASPH will get dusty as my walk around lens for most purposes.

An OM-3 from maitani .... now the wait!

This is the second item that's popped up in the classifieds in just over a month where I've seen the ad and instantly said "I'll take it!" without hesitation. The other was my RD-1s.

What does that thing look like folded/collapsed? The base looks super tech!

This deserves a thread of its own.

Oh. my.

I've been lusting for one of their 8x10s. Actually, I've been lusting for all 8x10s that aren't monorails.

I love black paint stuff and I always found the frame counter of the M2 somehow sexy ;-) What better, to get one in BP then!

Tri-X and Ilford chemicals, and a second 35mm negative holder for the Epson V700 scanner, so I can cut out the tabs and use full 6-frame ANR glass inserts from Better Scanning. (The inserts will be my next purchase.)

Nah, it's 3 lbs + lens board/lens. The bottom/black bits are carbon fibre, the wood is Canadian maple, the silver bits are aircraft grade aluminum. The focusing mechanism (nob at rear) uses stainless steel ball bearings.elb

Frank -- I'm planning on a trip to drop off stuff for Jan and you on Sunday (pending logistics) and can bring this with. I also received a Velbon CF tripod today, and should get an Acratech GP head "real soon now". I be stylin'!
