Jim, maybe it is time to give you another 4x5 holder. Recently sold both of my 4x5 Linhoff's, and found a spare holder in a forgotten box. Always enjoy your Canon Rangefinder stuff you write about.

You’re telling me. It took me about 20 minutes to take my six pics. No doubt I need several more film holders.

On the plus side, the Busch Pressman 4X5 is a people magnet. Young or old, everybody commented on my “cool” camera and wanted to have their picture taken. I’ll develop the film (Ilford HP5) tomorrow and am looking forward to seeing the results.

It is weekend again.

I took some photos through our kitchen window, as rain was pouring outdoors. I used the E-PL1 with a ZK 50/1.5 from 1938. In fact, I posted five images already at the RFF Gallery.

What are your weekend plans?
I hope that you have a good weekend.

Wishing you all a good week end!

Raid, we call "trattoria" a restaurant which is simple, with no luxury, usually small with friendly people and simple good food!
We are lucky enough to have one where we live behind the corner!

Some more shots with nikon Rf's in celebration of Nikon Rf Month. Weather looks like it will be permitting 100 iso film too - Orwo UN 54.
Bodies, two nikon SP's, one with the Nikkor 28mm f3.5 and the other with an older version of the Nikkor 35mm f2.5 that came back after a friend re-lubed the focussing and aperture ring (both of which almost required a pipe-wrench to use). Process the current 5 rolls that are sitting in the darkroom. Mixed up some D23 for use as a two bath developer. Second bath being Borax.

Shooting a rodeo today, so it's the DSLR and heavy zoom. At least it's a beautiful day out.

I shot a test roll of Rollei RPX100 which I'll develop in Rodinal 1+25 for 9 minutes. The 1+50 recipe is 18 minutes long which is too much for my sanity. Tomorrow we'll see the results. About my sanity.

This thread needs some activity again!
I took some photos at the beach last Friday, and I have uploaded some to the RFF Gallery. I used the M8 with the Zeiss G 45/2 Planar, and I used a pre-asph Lux on the M9.

What have you been doing this weekend?
Hope it was going well for you.

Hi Robert,
We have a deadline of April 15 for taxes in the USA, but this year, it was extended until April 18. It always is a time consuming job to put the report together.

Oh the usual.
Go somewhere downtown, wander the streets looking for good stories to tell with photos.
Just before I walk out the door, I'll either schlepp my film SLR kit or grab the bag with the rangefinders, as the mood strikes me.

We have amazingly wonderful weather since a few days. The sky is deep blue, and there is a cool breeze in the morning and in the evening, with warm noon and afternoon.

Shooting MF in Philadelphia around the fountain plaza leading to city hall in amazing light with a great cloudscape. The sculpture fountains were on and luminous, the architecture grand, and the nascent foliage beautiful. Mono and color today with the Pentax 67. A fabulous day and evening to be out shooting.

I will be shooting some portraits at a local music festival this weekend. Not sure which camera I'll bring out to play, but probably a Leica with a 90mm or a 135mm on it.

How is your weekend going so far?
I used the 75/1.4 Lux in a few shots at home. Not much else. It is steaming hot in Pensacola these days. The air conditioning indoors is more tempting than sweating outdoors to do some photography.

It is weekend again! Today, we had both sunny weather with blue sky, and then stormy rain weather as if the world was sinking into water. I used my Hasselblad wide angle MF camera, SWC when the weather was nice.

What are you doing this weekend?

There was a metal concert downtown last nite, I walked the streets around the venue before the sunset for some "street tatoo" pictures.
I wandered over to where my son had set up a dancer/model shoot in the street in front of a theater, but didn't hang around.

In the same general area this morning, a monthly "junk fair" was held, and I got some more street pics.
I am slowly losing the fear of street shooting, and in some situations I will engage, and ask permission.
I have been shooting the Leica Standard w/tri-x at 800.

I love using my Leica Standard with wide angle lenses. The shutter release is butter smooth.

Walked the mean streets of downtown San Diego today : ) with my X100 + TCL. Tomorrow I think I will head out to the desert and see if I can catch some cloud bursts in the afternoon with my digilux 2 and X100.

Hi Raid, the poll in this thread closed some years ago. It would be interesting to repoll to see the difference some years make in camera type use.

How can we start a new poll or how can we re-open it, Frank? You may have meant to have a new poll in a separate thread. Good idea.

I just shot a sheet of New55 color film in my old Busch Pressman 4X5. Disappointing results. The chemical pod didn't properly open so only 1/2 of the image developed. What did develop was interesting, not life-like colors, but kind of dreamy. This new film has potential, if they can fix the processing problems.

Interesting, Jim. I have never used such a film.
