1963 Jupiter 3 - color shots

I'd heard Sonnars were good for color, so shot a roll of Velvia 50 through my new Jupiter 3. The shots were amazing, but I don't have any scanned yet. So I took a walk with the G1 at sunset to try it on that body.





Slideshow of more from the walk with the 63 Jupiter 3:

I'll post some Velvia shots when I can scan them.

This one looks great. Hope to see more.
I have never used color with my Canon 50/1.5 yet, but I'll try.

Thanks. I think I'm going to compare the Jupiter 3 to my Canon 1.5 this weekend. Here are another two on Velvia 50.

Sorry I missed this when first started. I believe 63 was a good year for Jupiter 3 glass. Mine is a 63. After shimming it's a near favorite lens. It would be interesting to compare serial #'s.

Indeed interesting Greg; would you like to start a separate thread for the serials?
Sorry, I didn't see this sooner. I went to get my J-3 for the serial # & low & behold it's not a 63 at all but a N6002015. All this time I thought it was a 63? Now I'm scratching my head how I came up with the year 63. Loosing my mind. Anyhow early 60 models are good.

I totally agree, it seems the early 60s ones are usually good. I'm very happy with my 63.

Here is something completely different. Shot yesterday night (24 march) at the On the Run tour of McCartney - the J3 is also draws very nice for these 'night shots':

Last week I got another J3 from Russia, one from 1956. I could test it last weekend at some flower arrangements when visiting mother at Easter....the sun was shining very low in her window late afternoon capturing the flowers. I took this one with the lens at f 2 or f 2.8.

I took my 1973 J-3 to a wedding and got some great shots. It's a never-fail lens for me now.

Here's another one, shot last week when testing a Z6 from a fellow member. Two negs combined for one pano shot on 200 asa film, with Jupiter 3 from 1956:

That's stunning, Ron. I've never done something like that. I assume you just used a tripod and rotated slightly?

Incidentally, the last time I was in the Netherlands was when I was about 10. That is EXACTLY how I remember it! Beautiful place.

Very interesting indeed! I like to do software stitching of digital images, but to do the same with film shots... I don't see myself taking 100+ film exposures, scanning them and than stitch them But two or 3, I can still manage that

Thank you Tony. Actually I shot both pictures handheld, and honestly at that time I hadn't planned to make it a pano. But once I saw these pictures near each other on my computer I saw the pictures worked much better as a panorama. However since I did them handheld I lost some of the pictures when they were stitched together.

Once digitized, there is actually no difference between combining digital images and digitized film.

Rarely see film panos but this is sweet scenery with good color balance. Picture seems perfect as it is or to me pic is nicely focused.

Nice lens. For my taste, it made a good match with Fuji Neopan 1600:

The Jupiter-3 is an amazing lens, with surprising qualities. Compared to the Zeiss Jena Sonnar 50/1,5 the J/3 closes up to 22, instead of early Sonnars (f/8) and later ones (f/11) and this is a great help when taking pictures in daylight, especially with modern, faster films. As seen in the posted pictures though, this lens gives its best in low light situations.

My J-3 is from 1960, with Kiev/Contax mount. Bought back in 1989 (in Venice, from a Russian tourist).

61' Jupiter 3 Chrome Adjusted for Leica standard and close focus (0.7m)

I am always surprised by how sharp this lens can be under the right light.

These are from expired roll of Superia 400.

Wide Open:

I think the film was HP5. They were then scanned on my flatbed scanner.
