Neil,

the good news is, the new strap does not influence the setting... 😀usually, when I go around with my old 500CM and the 80 Plannar, I simply set it on f8/125, in case of lowe light at f5,6/125, for ASA100-160 color film.

Andreas

PS: Since your are traveling in Japan, if time allows, pay a visit to Yodobashi or BICCamera shops in Tokyo, they keep still a nice range of 120 films (but much less than 20 years ago...)

Thanks a lot Andreas. 

I will give it a bash when I get home. 

Neil

I’ve just ordered a new strap for my Hassy 503CW, so along with the 40 odd roles of color and B&W 120 film I’m going to have another go at shooting 6x6. 

Question. 

When out shooting street style photography when it’s impossible to meter for each shot, how to you guess/meter a scene?

neil

Neil - I use a small handheld Sekonic light meter that can be tucked into any pocket, even a shirt pocket.  One press of the side button and you get a perfect incident exposure reading and you can adjust from there as you wish (I usually give a little extra exposure).

I have had zero luck with smart phone apps.  Rubbish IMHO.

I like it a lot James. It has a surreal look, almost like one of those artists impressions of what a new city development will look like, with people and trees superimposed in a scene.

I like the colors and the three dimensional effects in this one:

Ricoh GR1 - Agfa CT 100 Precisa

Wow Edward, what a scene and colours. It's almost like one of Rog's studies but in nature.

Question

I have a Plustek !20 and a Epson V850. What would you guys recommend using for 120 film ( color or B&W). I currently use my V850 for sheet film so wondered what would be best for 120 film?

Best would be a Nikon 9000, but the Plustek is a very good option.

I have the same. Plustek 120 for 135 & 120, and the Edson for sheet film. The Epson’s a lot faster if you’re just wanting an image for posting, though.
