Rolleiflex 3.5E and, depending on the weather, Ikonta 520.

I am going to use my Leica IIIc and a Jupiter J-3 that Brain Sweeney just adjusted to be spot on. I'm going to use ERA 100 film for a trip to a Sea Port.

Looking forward to the time taking photos.

I shoot with one of my Rolleiflex's every weekend, rain or shine, so I can upload to my blog during the week (I shoot my Leicas in between) :)

Ok, who's the film P&S shooter here - and what camera is it? ;)

08-24-2006, 16:29
I just purchased a Leica CM from Tony Rose and the size is perfect for carrying in my jacket pocket. It is actually much more than a P&S! This complements my M6 and R3A!

FrankS
08-24-2006, 16:51
Just to stick up for Frank, I have a Minilux. (older version of the CM) I jsut got back 9x36 colour slides from my vacation taken with the Minilux. They are wonderful! Only 3 or 4 were underexposed. Great camera complement to more "serious" cameras.

one more time...

i plan on using the zi along with the 25 and 50 zm lenses.

08-24-2006, 17:12
Finally, because I will have used up the film in my Bessa L I will get to use my new R3A with the Planar 50, F2. Expecting my daughter back from Vermont tomorrow- she flies back to Nashville on Saturday, hope to get some shots in between.

Olympus 35SP, OM-1n, and prolly Konica C35. My wife and I are off on holiday to New Hampshire, Quebec and Ontario.

I want to finish the roll of NP1600 in the Bessa R, the Tri-X in the Oly XA and the E100VS in the EOS A2. The Leica IIIa needs some exercise and will probably do some polaroids with the Speed Graphics. The DSLR goes everywhere.

On the road this weekend with:
Bessa R, 50mm Leitz Summarit, 85mm Jupiter 9, 35mm Color Skopar.
Nikon D50 with Tamron 28-200, Nikkor 18-55
Nikon N75 with Nikkors 28-80 G, 70-300 G, 50mm 1.8.
Overkill. Any single kit would do, but I want to play with all three. Just wandering the back roads Friday and Sunday, with the Hotter 'n' Hell Hundred on Saturday.

On Friday night, I'll take my F100 with my monstruous 80-200 zoom to the jazz/swing oldies concert here in town (with a nice roll of Ektachrome 1600). On Saturday morning, it'll be a Leica day. In the afternoon... I'll pick my SLR again, because Survivor (of "Eye of the Tiger" fame), is coming to town, to play in the Cornfest.

This is not a typical weekend, Rich. If that were the case, I probably would have clicked on the very last choice.

08-24-2006, 18:10
I will sadly have to use my D1-H for work, but I carry my M6 with me as well.

It takes a back seat for the newspaper assignments, but if I see something this weekend believe me I'll break out the RF.

So I voted Digital, cuz for sure I will be using it.

08-24-2006, 18:11
What a great question. I really enjoy this forum because of the sense of community.

I'll use M6 with Fujichrome 50 and c/v 28, and likely add M3 with 50 Summitar and Tri X 400 for day trip to Oakland on Sunday. Saturday: M6 with c/v 28 only.

08-24-2006, 18:14
My typical weekend gear is usually this:

Canon IVsb with Canon 28mm/3.5
Canon P with 50mm (there are many to choose from)
Canon T90 with Canon 80-200/4L

I may use instead of the P:

Pentax ME Super with SMC 85mm/1.8 and SMC 50mm/1.4

They all fit neatly in a small canvas bag.

I'll be using my M4, likely with the 35/2 Summicron and the CV 21/4 (love that little lens! :) ) These days, unless I have a shoot that really requires the SLR gear, I am shooting almost exclusively with my RF gear. In fact, when I go out to shoot for myself, I don't really even think about which camera bag to grab. Funny what hanging out with you lot will do to a guy. :D

08-24-2006, 18:37
I've got to finish shooting a roll of XP-2 in My Rollei 35S so I can team up with Dougg for our 40mm shoot out. I'm carrying my Kodak Retina IIa with color print film in the truck. I've got a roll of Kodak HIE in my Canon QL-17 I'm going to try to finish this week end. I have some stuff I want to shoot with my Autocord and Ilford Pan F and with the Graphic View II with 203mm Kodak Ektar. I doubt that I get every thing done though.

I am mostly shooting my M2 with the pancake, Summaron 3.5 or 28mm canon 3.5. (Good thing I can juggle). I also take the M3 with the 40mm crom along and the trusty 90mm f4 Elmar. Now here is hoping I do not run out of film.

I'll be taking in a baseball game with friends on Saturday.. so that will call for the CL with 40/90

Sunday is golfing with my parents and gf.. so that will require the Canonet

I also hope to squeeze in a short session with my Rolleiflex 2.8A which has gone almost entirely unused in the year I've had it

I'm testing out my FED 3a with a 3.5 collapsible ind. 50 and Tri-X at 200. I'm also processing the film latter this week with tylenol film developer, white vinegar stop bath and swimming pool fixer. Good times, don't 'ch know:D

Well.... The weekend started for me today. My son is playing football and he was in a scimmage tonight. There was my neighbor with a new Nikon digital camera that he paid big bucks for...he has his own photography business and me. I whipped out the beast tonight.....Nikon F2 with the power winder and an old 1st generation 85-250mm zoom that's almost 2' long. Sure was fun.

Some family events (four or five birthdays gathered) in the other part of the country.
I'll take the R-D1s with the 35 and 50 (or 75?).
As I put on the viewfinder magnifier, seems more comfortable to take the GR-D (for wides) in the bag instead of lens.

nemjo

Does it count to digital or to alternative?

08-24-2006, 21:41
If the weather clears up, I want to finish the roll of Pan-F in the M5 (shooting at 25) that I'm using for some long-exposure ideas. The 39-49 step-up adapter finally arrived so I can use my ND filters on the Leica lenses.

08-24-2006, 21:45
Ok, who's the film P&S shooter here - and what camera is it? ;) Well, for me, it's either the Ricoh GR1 (still sidelined for repair) or the Konica Lexio 70 (hard to find, and the 28-70 zoom isn't in the same league as the Ricoh's fixed 28mm f/2.8, but it's fast for a cheap[er] zoom p/s, and, for the moment, it works).

I'm riding the Norfolk Century, way over East in Long Island, NY, although weather isn't going our way at the moment...

And I'll take the little Konica Lexio 70 for the ride (as mentioned elsewhere in this thread).

As I'll probably be snapping some irrelevant stuff this weekend, it'll be either the DSLR or the digi-P&S.. The RF will stay in the cupboard, as will the 6x6 SLR....

Rich Silfver
08-24-2006, 22:10
Me, I anticipate I will use three-four different cameras;
- Digi P&S,
- Leica M3,
- Mamiya Super Deluxe, and potentially
- Leica III (F)

I'm off to a wedding tomorrow. I can't decide what camera to take - it's between my Bessa R3a or Leica IIIf (Quieter shutter) ?

08-24-2006, 22:31
Getting my CV 15 mm today so it's Bessa L and Bessa R with the 35/75 combo. I hope that the weather shows some mercy and it doesn't start raining again.

08-24-2006, 23:32
I'll be spending this (three-day!) weekend shooting for an assigment that demands digital, so I'm rather stuck with the G3 for that, unfortunately. But I have two cameras with half-shot rolls of film in them - the Miranda Sensorex that I bought from Jon Goodman (test roll, finally!), and the Balda Baldix - so, despite the extra weight, I shall slide them into my bag as well. If I'm smart, though, I won't take any extra film, or I'll never get down to the business at hand! :)

08-25-2006, 01:03
I've got two cameras with unfinished rolls of Fuji Reala in them, so my gear options for this weekend are:

- Yashica 35 GTN + small flash
- Exakta RTL1000 + Lydith 30/3.5, Oreston 50/1.8, Biotar 58/2, Orestor 100/2.8 and Orestegor 200/4 + flash

Yesterday the postman tried to deliver my new Zorki 1 from Oleg. Unfortunately no one heard him knock, so all he left was a delivery attempt notice. Hopefully the Zorki will be here this afternoon. If so, I'll definitely shoot with it Saturday. Sunday I'm off to New Orleans for the first anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. I'll be working most of the time, but I'll take a Spotmatic and Super Tak 35mm f3.5. I've used that lens on my KM 5D already but this will be the first time I shoot film with it.

08-25-2006, 04:44
I'll be using my D200 and either Sigma 17-70 or Nikon 35mm 1.4AIS the whole weekend. Normally I'd be using my one my Yashica RF but I'll be in a rush this weekend and I'm already backed up with film needing to be processed.

Yeah, HHH is the one organized ride that I never miss, just habit I guess. It's more for the drinking around the motel pool afterwards with friends than the ride, actually, which is flat, featureless, and pretty boring.
And stinking hot. It will be frying-pan hot this year, I'm hoping not as bad as in 2000, when the temperature was 113 F., with a reading of 130 F. 18 inches off the pavement.
Good luck on your ride in NY.

For a friend's wedding in Dresden, I'll take the IIIf and the digi P&S and decide then (guess IIIf first and the P&S when we're all too drunk to handle a manual camera ;)

what ball game?
just a minor league game with some friends.. we prefer to go to those games instead of the major leagues because it's a fun little park with a very social atmosphere.. it's really all about being with friends, rather than caring who wins.. and the spectators make for great photo ops

The Canonet will do for the weekend for the most part: It's move-in at my school, so right now my Canonet, F2, D1H, and a block of Tri-X are packed up nice and neat in the pile of junk to head back to "the Emerald City of Oz" (The FE2 and 10D stay behind for Mom and Dad respectively).

Contax II, Bessa R2C, 50/1.5 Sonnar, 35/4.5 Ortho, 50/3.5 Tessar and 85/2 Sonnar. Just got 2 of these lenses back from being cleaned by Ken Ruth, and want to take them out for a test drive.

Since I am on vacation this weekend and in addition, going to my grandparents for their anniversary; I will be bringing my Bessa T with 21mm lens, but also have my Nikon D2x with 24mm Nikkor, 50mm Zeiss, and 28-300 Tamron (which most likely won't be used).

Last night I was traveling through NYC on the train and I didn't even pull out the nikon. Just shot some quick tourist and street shots with the Bessa. Even in front of Penn Station I wasn't given a passing glance. Not sure it would have been the same with the D2 body.

08-26-2006, 16:27
well, i did use the 25 and 50 comboination at the fringe this afternoon, along with the 90 but it never left the bag.
it was mostly the 25 and some 50 shots at the end before my knees started to go.
i hope to go back tomorrow with just the zm 35 as it has been gathering dust for too long now. i might throw the cv 21 & finder in the bag and see how they feel on the zi as well.
21 & 35, that sounds like a good combo too.

the beauty of mix and match!

08-26-2006, 20:21
One day into the weekend and so far I've used the Leica M3 w/ a 50mm Summicron (10 shots or so) and a digital P&S (2-3 shots). One more day to go. Tommorow should be a Hasselblad day....

08-27-2006, 22:05
Well, with the weekend just behind me...

I guessed I'd use a DSLR or digi-P&S to shoot some snaps. That was untill I found a bunch of mushrooms in the backyard. I tried to shoot them with the DSLR, but was working in such tight corners that I just couldn't get them framed right. In the end I took the 6x6 SLR with waist level finder and close up adapter to shoot them from ground level.. I never got around to snapping anything else, so all my efforts are commited to NPH..
