  1. MP, 35mm Summaron f2.8, HP5Plus.
  2. From Kosmo Foto, here are two articles on the future of film based photography. Both are long reads but present some worthwhile information IMO. A passage from the above article: "...the nearly one billion rolls of film a year sold in the US at the height of the film market in the early 2000s has dwindled to a few tens of millions a year..." Yes. it is always better to sell a billion rolls of film a year - but if photographers are buying a "paltry" 30 million rolls of film a year - 1/33rd of the billion rolls a year of legend and lore - that still amounts to over 576,900 rolls of film purchased per week. If the profit per roll of film for both manufacturer and retail seller were $2.00 a roll - and I would guess that given film prices today, that is a reasonable estimate, and may be low for the manufacturer - that amounts to a over a million dollars profit per week for both manufacturers and retailers. That's not pocket change and I would think there are a lot of other businesses out there who compete for much smaller pots of gold than $52 million plus per year.
  3. I am relatively new hear and love to see the wonderful photos here and I visit site to see the authors work but I have a question. In my search on Google I read that xrays will effect film by turning it black. If this is the case how do I protect it while going through airport security? Help... I suppose I could but it through checked baggage but I've heard this sometimes get xrayed too. I'm excited. I get to use my R lenses on my film Leica film cameras and on my Canon digital. My first real outing in quite some time.
  4. I started using a Leica M3 a few days ago. After loading the film, the rewind lever pushes the film forward; however, the rewind knob (to the left) does not rotate. It starts rotating after about 5 exposures, and then the lever becomes really stiff. Any idea what the problem might be?
  5. It's not a done deal just yet, but this is good news. I usually shoot Tri-X as an all-around B&W emulsion, but lately I have been thinking of picking up a fine grained higher contrast ISO emulsion for landscapes and some travel work. If Fuji actually does resurrect Acros, it would be a truly outstanding turn of events.
  6. Last week I visited London with my son. I brought my M4-P and some rolls of film with me and want to share some of the pictures I made in this thread. We had a really great time in a sunny London and managed to see a lot of this town. My last visit dates back to the mid 90's and I have to admit, that my memories to this last visit where not the best. Back then we had the typical London weather with the occasional rain, and as I was much younger in those days, my wallet was a lot thinner than nowadays Although you will only see my touristic view on London in this thread, any feedback is strongly appreciated. Let's start with some street art from the East End. While we where walking on the tracks of Jack the Ripper and searched for some of the locations of his crimes in this area, we where excited about the many pieces of street art all over the place: M4-P - Summicron 35 - Agfa CT 100 Precisa (slide film)
  7. First sample is at 1/125 ss. Notice the white stripe near the right edge. It looks pretty much the same at 1/250 and 1/500, however, at 1/60 it's gone. I haven't seen the results at 1/60, but that's what I've been told. Last sample is at 1/1000 and things are much worse there. I am going to make more tests, but what do you think it can be? Shutter? A body was stored without lens attached to it and without front cap covering the mount, so shutter was basically uncovered. However, I couldn't find any obvious signs of damage on shutter. And if it's a shutter problem, repair would probably cost more then a camera itself, right?

    I am intrigued that Kodak are now pushing Kodachrome photography (note, I did not say Kodachrome is back) by publishing a new Kodachrome magazine, edition 2 of which is now available at a price of £20 here in the UK. It features Kodachrome images from the archives but is very expensive for what it is. I also note that a contact sheet featured in Edition 2 was shot on Ilford HP5, but it is what the featured photographer was using ‘back in the day’. Does this re-emergence mean that they are trying to raise interest in Kodachrome again? Pretty unlikely, but a strange move. Gerry
  9. Hello there, I have decided to start a topic on jammed shutter issue of Leica film cameras. I experienced this issue while taking photos at the Shard. My camera had been loaded with Adox CMS 20 II, the microfilm had the highest resolving power. The first fifteen frames were beautiful to enjoy the view. Yet after 16th frame, the camera was jammed. Since I tried to force its advance lever, it was totally broken. One wondering what was happened may look at the result here. I sent my camera to Wetzlar via Leica Store Mayfair. After eight weeks, it came back to London in a repaired condition under warranty. Recently, I have heard similar experiences to mine. Some of them is not related to choose Adox's films, since they have occurred while using Ilford's HP5+, and so on. In order to build a guide for one who could experience the same, may you share your experiences on jammed shutter, or advance lever stuck?
  10. I shot my first test roll in newly acquired Leica M2. In precisely one frame, I got a shadow line on top of the picture (see below). It was shot at 1/500. There are other frames just before and after with same shutterspeed which do not have the same artifact. Anybody seen this? My camera was supposed to be CLAed (I bought from Tamarkin). Rest of the frames are good, except only this one. I have warranty therefore I will shoot another roll to see what happens, but would like to know what tribal knowledge in this forum has to say about this.
  11. Hallo und zunächst einmal Entschuldigung für die folgende Anfängerfrage: Ich lasse oftmals einen halb belichteten Film über Monate in der Kamera. Kann dies zu Problemen an Kamera oder Film führen? Ich fotografiere nicht regelmäßig analog und dann kann sowas schon mal vorkommen. Ich möchte dann auch nicht irgendwelche Sinnlosfotos machen, nur um den Film voll zu bekommen. Viele Grüße A.

    Kids Today

    Taken with Leica M4-P and 35mm Summarit f2.5 using Ilford HP5+ film. This is from the first film I have home-processed in16 years and I processed it in Tetenal Paranol S (the rebranded Rodinal formula). I managed to control the resulting grain using LR Classic, bit I won't use the dev again. I bought a 'starter kit' and it was included in that but I have Ilford DD-X on order for the next film. I should have remembered Rodinal from many years ago. Gerry

    The hat maker

    This is from my archives for the year 2000. I was on a trip to the US to lecture to a couple of photographic colleges and stopped off at a re-enactment village in Bethpage, Long Island where I photographed just 2 frames of this guy by natural light. The great fun of American re-enactment sites is that they are very serious, and he claimed that he had heard about photography but didn't realise cameras had become so small. I photographed by natural window light using a Leica M6 and 50mm Summicron f2 (I think!). The film was Kodak T400CN (C41 process) which I had taken so I could get it processed as I went and minimise the chances of fogging in airport x-ray machines. I have just rediscovered this after 17+ years, so I hope you like it. Gerry

  23. I have pushed Tri-X to ISO 1600 with good results but I never though it was possible to go to 6400 without a serious loss of image quality. Kodak Tri-X is truly a dynamic and capable emulsion; it's all in the processing...
