Scale Focus 35mm Pic Thread

I see that pretty much every other forum on here has a picture thread so I figured I'd start one in here. So lets see some pictures from favorite scale focus cameras!

These were with a Rollei 35-
Norfolk, VA at night:

This was a 15 second exposure at f/8.





And these were with a Lomo LC-A+ RL:
Grand Central Terminal

Ilford FP4+ 125

Street Corner


Grand Central Terminal again:

No response from fellow users?! I think these are really great shots, even though not sure what I'm seeing in #3... some image reflects on huge canvas?

I perticularly like the way lights diffuse in these B/W shots.

I think they are good, especially the black and white shots. I have a roll of film in an Olympus Trip 35 and will post some shots if they turn out well.

The third was taken at a drydock in Norfolk, VA looking up from the bottom of the drydock through a tarp that they use to prevent overspray when painting a ship.

Great pictures everyone.

Olympus Trip 35 loaded with Velvia 50. A fun and capable little camera (until my son 'liberated' it, that is).

I've been framing through the sportsfinder and scale focusing Rolleiflexes and Minolta Autocords for over 40 years now. My 15mm Heliar on the Besa L is scale focus too. http://thepriceofsilver.blogspot.com

You are making this thread yummi, so I'll drop in.

Two pics stitched together - to avoid questions if my XA2 is converted into half-frame camera

I am going to be taking the LC-A out tonight I think. It has been a while since I took any thing with it. Here are a couple more:


I forgot to change the focus on the camera for this one but I'm still very happy with the result.



And a bonus one:

Thanks naql for starting this thread. I've never tried scale focusing before, and looking at the results shown here, am pleasantly surprised at how well it works.

The downfall of most hip shots is neither focus nor exposure. It's framing and composition. Canted verticals don't help either.

Some from my XA3 on an outing to the Yorkshire Dales, attempt at scenic compositions.

Gatepost



By the river Warfedale



Stile (one of those that combine a few steps climb up the dry stone wall with a little gate on the top. Strong springs always catch me out...)



Seeing these again gives me a bit more enthusiasm!.

These are from my new Konica C35 EF3 on Fomapan 100 @ EI35 in Fomadon R09 1+100 6.5 mins:





Forgot to set the focus on the first shot, but worked well anyway.

Cheers,
