These were taken at Monte Sano State Park, near Huntsville, AL.
Still a little early for scenery/lighting to be ideal, but the little Oly
did a pretty good job with the blotchy light:

Yes, that is my camera bag off to the far left in the one pic, sheesh.

Chubasco,

Nice pictures. Like the colours and very sharp indeed. Is it manual settings or automatic?

Nice camera bag, by the way. :D

Colin, first shot was manual, wide open at 1/30 if memory serves, and the
rest were in automatic.

Spider67, I hope to reshoot the area again, with better summer light.

Thanks for your comments, fellas. :)

Hi, it was Kodak Gold 200, cheap Wallies stuff.

I've had several RC's and they never fail to please. Zuiko glass is very nice. It's "a little brick" of a camera though! Kodak Gold, you can't go wrong.

Thanks, Paul and Jan, I'm very happy having two of these cams up and running.
They are a pleasure to use and easy to pack around.

I went back to the Teahouse this week and reshot some of these,
and added a bog scene that's about 70 yards from the Teahouse:

This time I used Fujicolor 400 instead of the Kodak Gold 200 and it allowed me to stop down more on some of these. Scanned the same way, 2400dpi on Epson 4490.

These look really nice. Both films look great, although different. The Kodak gives a more vintage look IMO, with the Fuji more saturated and more greens.

that Zuiko glass is very nice indeed.

Thanks for your comments, fellas, thought this was a dead thread. The 35RC is
one of my faves, about to use some Reala 100 and see what happens.

Thanks again,

Bill

I'm glad someone resurrected this thread; I must've missed it the first time around. Those are some great photos, Bill. Now that the weather is improving I need to give my 35RC some exercise.

Great, a perfect setting for a teahouse, were there lots of others photographing there?

Great shots from a truly great camera. I've got two that stay loaded almost all the time, and no matter how much I love using other cameras, the RC is one I always seem to come back to. Those really are some beautiful shots; I like the Fuji 400 better although I'm partial to that film anyway. Looking forward to your Reala shots.

Thanks again, fellas! Every time I think this thread is done, somebody dusts it off and posts!:D The Fuji 400 shots I much
prefer over the Kodak Gold 200, maybe my scanner likes it better,
dunno. I've shot Reala in a Konica T4/UC Hexanon 80-200 zoom
combo (Shadowfox got me on that binge) and am very impressed
with the small grain. Takes a little more PS adjustment to get the
colors right, maybe it won't with an RF. The Reala I bought is all
36 exposure, and reading the one thread that has film advance
problems makes me pause to use it in my Oly 35RCs. I have it
loaded in a black Yashica Electro 35GT so will see how it does
there. Another cam I'm running Reala is in a Contax RX with the
Zeiss Planar 50/1.7, but I won't talk about that. LOL

CJC, did you ever get your 120 folder running? I just got a lot
more Reala in 35 and 120, and a bunch of Neopan Acros 100
in 120, can't wait to try it in my Agfa folder!

Thanks again,

Bill

CJC, I was the only one there!

Really, really gorgeous work here, Bill. Can't say which "take" I like more, they're all good. Have you printed any of these up yet?

Barrett, thanks for your comments, but no, haven't printed any,
yet. My Canon Pixma isn't up to task and will be upgrading to a
nice Epson, but GAS attacks have severely interfered with that,
so far!:rolleyes:
