By Herr BarnackHere's an interesting article about the "new and improved" Acros II black and white film from Fuji:
Comparing Fujifilm NEOPAN 100 ACROS II to original ACROS. What's the difference?
By gwpicsIt was in 1997 when my wife and I first visited New England. I wanted to attend the annual Star Island ‘escape’ of the New Hampshire Society of Photographic Artists, and it was to celebrate our 28th wedding anniversary. Both of us had always wanted to visit the area for the fall colours, so we scraped the money together and did the trip.
One of our days was spent travelling the road which was the old route of i95 before it became a multi-lane highway, to discover a little of rural America north of Boston. It turned out to be a fascinating drive with abandoned wood-built hotels, and large empty barns, both of which had died when the traffic deserted the road for the new superhighway. During our travels we came across a car lot selling rusty old heaps of autos which I did not understand why anybody would pay the price, but which I enjoyed enjoyed photographing. Today there is a programme here on cable TV in the UK called “American Pickers” and I understand the American restoration market more, and therefore the old-time autos sat by the roadside. As it was, I was just fascinated to see them and photograph some of them.
I was new to Leica having bought my M3 double-stroke about 6 months earlier, and was using Kodak T400CN film so I could get it processed as I went to avoid x-ray problems at the airport. The lens was a beat-up 50mm Summicron f2 because it was what I could afford. I have just been going through the archives, and I particularly like this image. I may be wrong but I reckon the price would now be about 4 times what is shown here.
If anybody knows the make and model of the auto, or the location of the car lot I would like to know.
Hope you like the image!

By leic.a.nikMoin zusammen,
ich habe seit ca. 4 Wochen das Problem, dass meine M2 manchmal den Film beim Spannen nicht richtig transportiert.
Die Bilder überlappen sich dann. Man merkt es beim Spannen, der Spannhebel springt dann.
Der Fehler tritt meistens auf wenn der Zähler bereits bei 20 -25 Bildern steht. Ich habe das Gefühl, dass der Film zwischendurch die Spannung verliert oder über die Zähne rutscht.
Ist jemanden so etwas schon mal passiert oder kennt sogar jemand die Lösung?
Im Moment elf ich mir in dem ich ein Bild mit Objektivdeckel mache wenn ich merke dass der Film nicht transportiert wurde.
Gerade bei teuren oder alten Schätzen verliere ich so meist 4-6 Bilder was ehrlich gesagt sehr schade ist.
Gerade bei Filmen wie einen Fuji Superia Reala 100 oder Kodak Ektachrome 160t
Die kleine ist mein Ein und alles.
Bitte helft mir.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen
By Herr BarnackFor those who use the Q2 to create black and white images, what have you found is the way to get the best results in terms of image quality?
Do you shoot in color then convert to B&W in post processing? If so, which software program do you prefer?
I know we already have a Q2 image thread, but if we could see some examples of B&W images made with the Q2 in this thread by way of example, that would be great. My Q2 is on the way and I want to learn about how to maximize it for black and white imagery, particularly for making exhibit quality B&W prints. I'm sure many others will be interest in this, too.
