I LOVE the tonality and contrast you're getting with the Caffenol. You and Ezzie's coffee-developed films are so wonderful; much better than any result I've ever gotten.

Great shot

Nothing wrong with looking 'modern' in my humble opinion, unless you actually want a 'retro' look.
I shoot colour in my vintage folders (and other types). Twice my pictures of local pubs, one taken with a 6x6 folder (Ensign Autorange 220), and one with a 6x9 folder (Bessa Rangefinder), were downloaded from Flickr and used in newspaper advertisements.

Thanks very much. It definitely took a bit of experimenting to get the Caffenol dialed in, but once I settled into FP4+ and HP5+ as my B&W films, it got easier; they both seem to respond quite well to it.

That's great Mike - how did you balance the exposure? It looks like there would be a lot of contrast between the indoor lighting and external ambient

Thanks Johnnyrod,

I wasn't using a meter, and it was fairly dark. Exposure was probably 1/30 and wide open and hope it was enough. Tweaked the curve in darkTable. The neg has good detail in the bricks, the lights are completely blown out, which I expected.

Thanks Mike. I find those sorts of pictures challenging and do little or no PP. Interesting to see how much you've pulled back from the highlights, considering.

Dig, I have one digital, cause I get lazy and sometimes handy...

But the cameras I use most and love are the old folders.

I have but three and try to use all of them but tend to work the Certo6 and an old Pearl II with 3.5 lens...all f8 tripod BW shots.

Scan-161104-0001 by Nokton48, on Flickr

Ye Old Mill, Utica, Ohio "The Ice Cream Factory".
Went there with my wife to enjoy some time together. Quickly taking a few photographs was a bonus.

Plaubel Makina III, 100mm F4.2 Anticomar (the rare, very sharp, Makina 100mm lens!), Ilford FP4+, Legacy Mic-X
I was testing the viewfinder framing capabilities of this camera and they are quite precise. When I was a practicing architectural photographer, I started a photograph by composing the outer edges of the frame (in a highly precise manner, this is easier in 4x5 and even better 8x10), and then worked my way inward into the center of the photograph.. I am very pleased with the precision framing in the optical system of this Makina III.

Gawd, love these things, even though I must divest my folders due to no longer being able to handle chems...skin condition recurring...nothing like these pics and the above from old Bessa I is spectacular...occupies one for quite the while.

Thanks.

I really like the photo of Brandenburg Gate -- lots of history!

Especially when using a Moskva-5 camera, very "cold war".

Semi Leotax DL

Purchased the Semi Leotax DL from Japan and looks like the bellows and lens are in fine working condition. My developing skills could use some work however.

Grease smear...looks fixable. The vehicles to right of Toy sign are much sharper in the Ikonta pic...could be as simple as removing the front lens and cleaning?

It's a light leak but haven't figured out from where.

I was sharing to show how much more contrasty the Ikonta is over the Leotax. And a bit more sharp. If I could get the Ikonta fixed it would definitely be my go to color film camera for 120. I have XP2 loaded in the Leotax today.

Bellows? Am sure you have checked, so maybe edge of door...

Edges at folds? Maybe slight crack shows up only when bellows is extended?

Tough testing for light leak, but would be more than worth it to fix, IMHO.

Opton lens?

I happen to have a 6x9 Ikonta Mess I used to use for BW infinity shots.

Cannot use now cuz chemicals give me skin rash, so was going to sell it...Really too nice to sell too nice to let alone.

Again, IMHO, worth fixing.
