As a follow up to my whining about my first roll out of the Bessa R...I promise not to share every roll as a topic of conversation, don't worry.
25 shots on the second roll (I never seem to finish a 36). I tackled 5 subjects with that film and ended up with 3 shots I like. I think perhaps that's a better measure of sucess than how many shots from a roll as it reflects what's really important to me. I saw something possible and 3 out of 5 times managed to get something like what I had in mind.
The two that did not make it were more a failure of vision than of technique. I don't mind that much either. The days you walk around seeing
nothing...those are disapointing.
Anyway...film is Kodak 400UC (my new porta samples came in, so I'll be checking that out next). First two shots are with the 21mm color-skopar. I tweeked both in PS for a bit of perspective correction. Not all they necessarily needed, but shooting at the angles I chose, you have to live with the odd lines of very wide angle.
Nice sharpness from that lens, all the way to the corners.

1/4 second exposure with the camera rested on the padded bench. That's a ceiling fan light up there showing motion.

I'm just a bit obsessed with tables and chairs. That J9 I got off a member here is very good. I'll have to shoot it head to head with the CV75mm that I have on the way.
