Wow, what a great thread. Shows what great images those old-fashioned, out-dated, out-moded TLRs can make.

Great photos guys, esp Thafred's, Tarzak's and Telenous'. Reminds me to take the Rolleicord out for a walk one of these days. How do you scan these? Negs, prints, flatbed or do you have that uber expensive Nikon 4000 ED?

This is still one of my favorites. It was on the first roll I put through my Rolleiflex 2.8F, which was also the first roll of film my Rollei had seen in over 30 years.



Yes, it's of my dog. So sue me.

Taken with Mamiya C220 f and Mamiya-Sekor 180/4.5 and 80/2.8 lenses. Not as elegant as a Rollei but more options.

For all of you guys who were using color film, what did you use? I saw that some of you used provia, but what are some other nice medium format films that you've used?


Thanks!

Favorite films: Fuji Professional 160S, 400H, and 800Z, depending on the situation.

@NB23: That photo is fantastic! Her shoes really add the final touches on an already beautiful photo. I thought it gave it sort of an old 50's or 60's look to it. Was the dagger on the floor intentional?

@summilux: Beautiful! What film is that?

Only have some fading prints -- the negatives were long ago washed away, literally.

I'm a huge Ultra 50 fan. For some reason I can't see my pics in this thread (my hosting service might be having issues), but I know I have one in my gallery on this site taken with it. Unfortunately it's a film that was axed by Agfa some time ago, though with the revival of the Agfa films who knows what might happen...

I also really enjoy Porta VC films in medium format. Great color, beautiful tones.

It's not the best I've ever taken, but the slightly fuzzy quality does give it a ww2-period feel.

Just curious, but can you recall what aperture you used for your photo? The Ciroflex and Graflex 22 (same camera, different name) had some pretty good triplet lenses which are plenty sharp when stopped down, and in my experience, perform acceptably when opened up. If I can ever find the time, I'll post some pics I made with my Graflex 22. The results are good enough that if I'd state they were made using a Tessar or Planar on a Rolleiflex, very few would argue with me.

Having said that, at first glance I thought you had made your exposure in the 1940's.

In this crazy sickness that is camera collecting, my first real TLR was a Yashica-A.
I bought it at a camera swap meet off of the original owner. It has the older,
'undesirable' Yashimar lenses in it. Like any collector, I've been constantly
chasing up the ladder when possible. I own a Yashica Mat 124G and another
Yashica-A with the Yashinon lenses.

However, my favorite TLR shots have been made with the first Yashica-A I bought.
Here's one of the photos:




I also own a Hasselblad, which admittedly has trumped the Yashica, but some of
my car snapshots from last summer using Arista EDU Ultra 100 film and this camera
are classics. I've been selling prints to people even.

Here's another with my Rollei. "At the Pond." I gave it a rectangular crop, a class A felony in the TLR world.

Also, how to I get my photos to print large like everyone else's?

I think I had it stopped down to f/16, taken at 1/100th. The Weather was changing between bright sun and overcast that day.

It's also the first time I shot Adox CHS 100 film, perhaps I need to discover its full potential first.

Thank you, Sir. It's one of my goals at these events to shoot some 'authentic' pictures.

defintely. Looks like a photo of WWII, the Debarquement on the Normandie beaches (please note that there's no "y" at the end of Normandie, please)
