Temple of Saturn / Foro Romano

I found a chance to take my IIIf/3.5 to Rome in July, following my Dad's visit in 1953, with his IIIf/3.5.

His timing (light) and Kodachrome (viz E100G) look far better! I love the 'atmosphere' in his pictures.

bigeye, that's cool that you were able to fairly closely match the shot from 1953. I always enjoy these kinds of comparisons, looking at the passage of time…
Quite interesting to see how much has remained pretty much the same, while that whole raised roadway in the foreground has apparently been removed.

Sorry I missed your question.

I collapse the red scale completely, but often back away from infinity lock just so I get an easy start to focus.

I have not noticed any damage, but don't trust me.

My personal conclusion was the lens would collapse all the way, after research and input from some of the usual suspects.

However I do not mount or unmount the lens collapsed.

I will try to get some shots with it tomorrow

looks a bit funny on the Sonys

Upon further reflection that actually makes more sense, doesn't it… especially regarding the roadway. Duh.

The rest are similar. Rome was quite different - none of his images have any tourists in them. The ruins and sites were not 'archaeological' or scientific; they simply blend into the daily scene, as above.

Elmar 50mm f3.5 (m-mount) Acros 100, Beutler 1:1 :10/7 min.
"Frozen Water #7" Great stainless sculpture in Vanier Park here in Vancouver. Part of an Art Biennale and now sadly gone. It was great for testing lenses and film.

Some EXCELLENT photography here, I love this place There's nothing like using this old equipment, for me the pictures are secondary to actually using my cameras/lenses.

All the below are from my Leica IIIf with a 30's Elmar which had been coated at some point which is now past it's best. I also have a VALOO attached to act as a hood and make it easier to interpret the apertures as they appear on my Sekonic 308s. I used TMAX 100 and Ilford ID-11 @ 1:1.

Hi Gary,
That 2nd shot does look a bit flare-y. But I'm wondering if a separate issue with these is with their development (time and/or agitation amount). There is a marked difference between these pictures and those in your earlier post in this thread. These two have really blown highlights and are much grainier. Perhaps a different development was used here?

James

edit: of course allowing for the fact that these are Tri-X instead of TMax100...

Hey guys, so I developed my first round of IIIC shots after first losing a roll of film due to incorrect loading. I'm still getting used to the camera (especially looking through the viewfinder vs what comes out on film), but here are what I thought were my best shots from my second roll. Actually, the film still was loaded a bit off because there was a white band at the top of my pictures. Not to be dishonest, but I corrected this in Lightroom using the scaling option.

Leica IIIC, Elmar 5cm 3.5 on HP5+











I love the softness in quality of the photos that the lens seems to produce. Very unique.

I did have a specific question regarding exposure. I'm not sure if it's the camera, the lens, or maybe due to the fact the film wasn't loaded entirely correct. First, here is a picture of me that I had my friend take. I metered the scene and then handed her the camera. Before this, I took a photo of her with the exact same camera settings in the same spot as I am, but this picture didn't show up in my developed photos. Could anyone venture a guess as to why that might have occurred?

Best scan I can manage with my Opticfilm 7200. Taken on IIIf with coated Elmar. Shot on Legacy Pro 100 (expired in 2011 and sitting unrefrigerated for the past 3 years!). Stand developed in Rodinal 1:100 for 60 minutes. Scanner set to lowest contrast possible as per Christopher Crawford's tutorial. Levels and curves adjusted in photoshop. No sharpening applied.

Great shot, Erik and wonderufl exposure. It's driving me crazy that it's not straight though :P

I had a question about the Elmar 5cm/3.5 and focusing. The max focusing distance on the lens seems to be about 4ft. Does that mean the lens won't do well taking photos any closer than that? If I attached a lens to my IIIc that had an even closer focusing distance, would the range finder recognize that and allow me to keep focusing? Sorry if these are silly questions.

Thank you.

The minimum focusing on the Elmar 50mm f/3.5 is usually 1 m (3 ft).

The rangefinders of my IIIc's go easily to 75 cm (2.5 ft) though, as I can go with them this close when using my Color-Skopar 50mm f/2.5.

Erik.
