Smart move, John! Save money for an M10.

I need to get many people here in trouble first, and the feeling of guilt may make me do the same and get an M10! [just a theory here]

Stormy weather can add a lot of character to the images, Robert.

Polaroid week starts today, so I'll probably grab my SX-70 and take a few pics with new IP beta 3.0 color film.

Good to know, curiously I haven't seen any reminder for Polaroid week at all lately. It was last a month or two ago...
My SX70 sits idle and a bit neglected, got to finish off a pack that's been loaded since summer and shoot some old kept cold.

I've seen some of the new color film and looks good. But priorities for Polaroid is not there now here

Receiving a Rolleicord on Tuesday so got to have fun testing it!

It is Friday here in the USA. This means that the weekend is there!
I just took out my camera bag, with the M8 and M9 in it.
There is a possibility (if I wake up early enough) that I will catch sunrise the beach.

What do you have planned for your weekend?

I'm hoping to test the Minolta IIIf light meter I just got. Should be getting the correct battery in today's mail. No place here in my small town has one so I bought a couple from Amazon.

Finishing up my 'Roid Week' shooting ... five more shots of color in the Impossible Project I-1, four more shots of B&W in the SX-70 ...

Then it's on to load up a Hassy back and do the "one day, one roll" thing for Dave L's challenge. Can't decide whether to use the SWC or the 500CM+Distagon 50mm. But that's likely going to be a day past the weekend... shooting even eight good exposures is darn tough, 12 is a lot.

Probably grab my 4X5 and try some street photography. That camera always draws a crowd.

Because my Rolleiflex has to be repaired I'll probably shoot the Holga with a B&W film for Dave's "one day one roll challenge"

What has to be repaired in your Rollie, Robert?
I am still unsure about light leaks in 220 film images from my SWC.

I had the film advance for my 3.5F once repaired by Eddy Smolov, but he retired a few years ago.

It is Memorial Day Weekend in the USA.
I hope that you have some weekend plans regardless where you happen to be living.
Keep this long-time thread alive with your entries!

I will use the E-PL1 and E-P2 with the 25mm/1.4 Summilux and the Zeiss 5cm/1.5 ltm (from 1938).

The Minolta meter I mentioned in my previous post works just fine. Which is good as I'll be using it with my "new" Nikkormat FT this week end.

Half weekend already gone, almost, with no photography! Tomorrow (sunday) I'll prepare my bag for the next vacation, M10 with 35/F2, Polaroid 340, sd cards, Fujipackfilms, batteries, charger...

I'm in the mountains of Virginia with a newly acquired Pentax K-01 that I just realized won't autofocus. For lenses I have the DA15 and FA43 as well as an R72 IR filter. Also for fun I brought a Holga with some Ilford film.

It is Friday, and I am looking forward to some photography this weekend.
I may actually try to use my Polaroid Land Camera for the first time! I just need to check if I have the battery for the camera or not.

While in Italy recently, Robert allowed me to use his Land Camera to practice, and I may have gotten the Polaroid Bug since then.

What will you be doing?

An air show in my small town this weekend, so hope to spend a few hours there on Sunday taking pics. Also, maybe a quick photo shoot tomorrow with a local model on her motorcycle.

Congratulations to both you and your wife, Robert!
My own plans this weekend are not quite settled--the Intrepid camera I bought is not here yet--allegedly shipped last Friday but no tracking movement until the 14th and nothing further since --so I am not planning on shooting my first 4 x 5 just yet.
However, I did just recently get another Zorki3m and another LTM Jupiter-12, so I will be running a roll through that.

Got a couple more "new" cameras inbound but I'm not expecting those til early next week.

Rob

I've got 4 rolls of trix from 4/25 through yesterday from an ongoing, architectural project. I'm gonna develop the film tonight and spend tomorrow scanning it. As the project matures, I will begin printing a representative subset in the darkroom.

Shot couple of rolls of Neopan Presto 400 in the CBD precinct. Tried to get more comfortable taking people/stranger shots. Finally getting comfortable using a film camera again and being patient. Need to get these developed soon!

It is weekend again. In the US, we have an extended weekend due to the 4th of July National holiday. Florida gave all state employees Monday July 3 also off. July 4 is of course also off.

I will try to do some relaxing photography today. After taking so many photos during our summer vacation to Italy, I feel "burned out" from photography! I need to be psyched up again.

What are you up to? I hope that you will do something relaxing too.

Raid,
I am playing with 70mm film! See here:

http://www.rangefinderforum.com/foru...hreadid=161383

Actually Raid you gave me the idea to start a 70mm thread. It's been very helpful and worthwhile.

Right now I have three Hasselblad A70 70mm backs loaded with film I'm shooting.. One has 70mm Kodak WL Surveillance film, and the other has Agfa Aviphot 200 B&W aerial 70mm film. And I have just finished a short roll of 1981 70mm Plus-X that I need to develop.

More 70mm FUN ahead.

I only shoot a few (10/20) frames with the M10: where I live behind the corner there will be some works next week, road will be closed, I'm afraid an old bricks wall will be demolished and probably behind the place they will make a new building...I want to have a photo of the place before that.

Good thoughts, Robert. Document what will be removed before it is gone.
It seems that the M10 must be back-ordered. You did well.

It is Sunday here in Florida! I have been busy with many things that did not allow me to take any photos so far this weekend.

What are you up to?

Came down to Miami on Thursday night--brought a minimal kit: Leica IIIA, Summar, CV 21mm, and 4 rolls of film. 2 Ektar and 2 TriX. Have shot one of the Ektar and about half of the TriX.

Came down for the Miami Pen Show...have also hit some of the touristy spots, didn't shoot any at the show, have been looking at the "urbanscape" (as opposed to the landscape stuff I usually shoot) and architecture. Don't think I will have too much to share but I won't know for a bit.

Pardon my heresy though, but, I wasn't here for photography: I came down because I needed a break, I needed to not spend time with any freinds nor family. I needed some good and different food. And I needed to see something "new".

So, in that respect, this trip has been excellent!

Leaving to head back up north early tomorrow morning so I'm packing tonight, having dinner and drinks at the hotel, and bracing myself for the 3:45 alarm.

Rob
