Yesterday (sat) I was helping out at our local point to point (horse race) manning the horse ambulance but I managed a few shots with the GRD and M2.
Unfortunately I hadn`t noticed that the GRD ISO was set @ 1600 so only three usable pics.
I`m hoping for more from the M2 and CV40SC /90 Elmarit .

I have about half a roll in both the F4 & F5 from a convention I was shooting last weekend...maybe I'll use what's left to shoot in our neighborhood...
No plans this weekend although I did have a camera with me...Thursday I was in Los Angeles and walked around with my Yashica Mat 124...shot a whole roll of Acros 100...

Day was spent hiking around the Golden Gate National Recreation Area for Easter, brought along the X100 and the M5. Wished I brought the Xpan instead of the M5. Oh well

Trying out new filters

Trying out new filters

I just started using the Cokin drop-ins for RF, SLR film, and digital work. I tried out a Singh Ray warming polarizer, that gave great results on my digital set up, and I will soon know how it did when I lined up the filter off my Tripod mounted Xpan and dropped it into the lens mounted holder. It took some practice in doing this smoothly, but I think I've it got down fairly well now. I also tried a strong ND filter to get the interesting water effects with prolonged exposures that this allows, and was disappointed by the color changes that resulted in the surrounding trees. I may have not had the digital camera settings correct for this, but the overall exposure was about right. More practice next weekend!!

It is a gorgeous looking Friday here in Pensacola.
I will get out my newly acquired Olympus EP-2 to make sure that all is OK for it to be used in an upcoming trip to Cairo.

What will you be up to this weekend?

Take care.

I'm envious. We expect two days of rain. Only. But still: all cameras loaded with b/w. I will get some results.

It is again close to weekend, and I feel great that I can relax a little with my family and take some photos. Weather can be important, but if you can get to a restaurant, and use a fast lens, photos are still within reach.

What will you be up to?

If all goes well, I'll be mixing chemicals and shooting my first 4x5 wet plate collodion ambrotypes. Can't wait to see the first one emerge on glass. Gonna be my next addiction for sure...

There is a labour rally in Toronto tomorrow afternoon. Going to take pictures there. Thinking I'll just take 2 Nikon 801's with 50 and 28mm lenses. No fuss, no muss, with those cameras. It's more about the results than the process with these.

I have three rolls of drugstore C-41 from various P&S to drop off, and one roll of ancient Tri-X to finish in a Reflex Brownie. I'll probably just stand develop that in Rodinal if time allows. I know I won't have time to scan all this.

Shooting plans call for SLR this time. My Konica TC-X sports a brand new (and sinfully tight) black leather outfit, NOS at a show last weekend, for $1. As was the Toshiba CdS meter that will come along, since the internal one is dead.

It is weekend again!

I met up with Dave Lackey this morning, and we took some photos together with Lina.

What are you up to?

Just as I was wondering if you're too busy to post this weekend, Raid!

I'm scanning those rolls I mentioned above--nothing promising--and later on or tomorrow I'll probably order the E-PL1. It doesn't look like the deal you got with the kit zoom is going to reappear, so it will be a body only, to go with my Konica SLR lenses.

I forgot to mention that I spent part of my morning being a responsible citizen, taking my bit of spent developer and fixer to the annual collection in my town. What a drag that was. This is a good-sized town. Hazardous waste "day" in reality lasts four hours and happens once a year. You can imagine the line of cars.

I think I'm going to find a workflow with Caffenol and cut down on commercial developers as much as possible.

So you called Cameta Camera and they said tht they do not have the set anymore? Too bad, but the deal for the camera alone is grest too.

No, I haven't talked to them yet. The website shows the package deal out of stock, and no demo 14-42 lenses listed at all. Only new, without box, at $170.

I'm not particularly excited about the lens, anyway. At f/3.5 the DOF is, what, about 28mm f/8 in 35mm terms? You're practically in hyperfocal at all times. Nice to get for $50 extra, of course, but if that's no longer available, ah well.

It is a good travel AF lens for quick shots.
