Hi!

I just got back a film roll that has been in my Olympus 35RC and honestly, I love the Kodak BW400CN...

I used a Konica C35 yesterday with Kodak BW400CN and had it scanned to a CD. Very fine results. Good cameras and good film. Your photos are excellent.

The 35RC, C35 and Trip seem to have lenses that really compliment the 400CN ... or the reverse, depending on how you want to view it. The Trip is a Tessar type lens, I think the C35 is as well, and the 35RC is a 5-element lens with really good contrast.

400CN can be a bit lower in contrast (especially when exposed at box speed) so higher contrast lenses seem to bring out the best in this film.

nice pictures. I've also tried the 400CN and like it. Another great BW film to try is Ilford XP2 Super, which also works very nicely with the 35rc.

Those are great shots. The third and the fourth are my favorites. My RC is quickly becoming a favorite.

Kodak 400CN is nice stuff. I usually develop my own B&W, but after recently working through a few old rolls of it I've been reminded how much I like it. It holds up well after expiration, too.

I had a 35RC for a while and agree that the BW400CN suits it very well.

Cheers, Robin

I've been thinking of using BW400CN in my RC for a while, and after seeing your results Kent, I'm totally convinced.

Beautiful photos... If I didn't have so many stinkin' fixed lens RFs, I might get me one of those RCs. That, plus I just have a thing against 2.8's on a fixed lens RF. Call me a snob, but it seems like it defeats the purpose.

Nice shots! The 35RC is one of those cameras that just draws me back to it over and over again, and has become one of my favorites. I wish it had a faster lens, but when you use it you grow to appreciate all of its features and characteristics, and you don't think much about the fact that it's only a 2.8 lens.

Nice film, nice camera, and really nice results! I've had a 35RC for many years, and have come to prefer the chromogenic B&W films.

Congrats beautiful pictures!
It´s pic 3&5 for me!

The 35RC is the little camera that could and still can.....sometimes I ask myself why bother with other cams....I have an RD unfortunately with its curse : the clogged shutter
