I received an old A-1 for free. The light seals were completely destroyed and the mirror was not working properly. So I changed the seals and followed a guide to lube the mirror gears (I went cowboy with some WD-40). The camera worked great, but I didn't notice that the lens, a 50/1.8 FD,  had the aperture blades fully stuck! I basically shot the whole roll at 1.8 ... Only the photos in the shades came out decent ... I got rid of the lens, I cannot fix it.

All  of the Astrum 400 photos are great. Unique film. What developer are you using?

Best,

Wayne

On this nauseating level it´s hard to say which of your photos is the best--but this is really funny.

Here Comes the Bride, Algeria 1980

Canon F1, FDn 35mm f2, Kodachrome 25

I bet I have viewed this one at least 10 or 15 times. Every time I notice something new. This time I notice that not one person in the photograph is looking at her or the animal. Amazing shot.

That's a really interesting observation, Wayne, and one that I'm glad you noticed, as I hadn't. It's amazing - this was taken 39 years ago and looking at it brings back memories of the noise and the smells - if I recall correctly the blunderbusses were about to launch into action. It was very loud.

Love this! I feel the spirit of  Mondrian combined with the spirit of Rothko! Great work Ernest, well done!

A story of kodachrome ❤️. I've been rescanning and reprocessing select pictures in order to get a reinvigorated look to them. I've been finding the old kodachromes hold up brilliantly over time. This is one such example - the picture was made during an evening dust storm over the Nile, viewed from the Old Cataract Hotel in Aswan. The colours here are true to the kodachrome original - bearing in mind that this transparency is 32 years old:

The green of the palm fronds seems magic......If not impossible. It works the eyes.

Thanks.

This is wonderful, Antonio - there is a certain sadness to it, a sense of loss. You are very much finding your inner Antonioni with pictures like this.

As for the A1, I encourage you to get another lens for it. The Canon FD lenses are brilliant and the A1 is, to my mind, one of the great cameras of the era. I think you'll have a lot of joy and fun with it.

Thanks!

I have another 50mm FD lens, the 50/2. I think it is not well considered, but at least it seems to work! So I'll test the camera again.

Thanks, Wayne. I've been using HC-110 dil B, 20 celsius, 8.5 mins.

Here's another Astrum shot from the Canon A-1. The open wide lens worked fine here.

Adam, so it was you pole-dancing up there? 😁

I did try to take a shot, but in the hectic of the moment I must have screwed up the focus...

What a lovely photo!!  And yes I can see how you wouldn't have been able to see me with that OOF.  Heck, I can barely see the Freedom Tower!!  :)

Made some experiments with water drops, this one was one of my favorites.

M6, Tmax 400 pushed up to 800, Apo 90

 

Beautiful Bangui. I know you know how to master this camera with this lens. I have this lens, Apo Cron but not my favorite as It is very difficult to control the focusing. I know it is having this famous Focus shift but I have tested this with my M8. but it is not very extraordinary in sharpness. But I have not really tested it with m6. I must try again. Well done in these images.
