TMAX 400 in the Nikon FE + 50mm f/1.4

I just got this roll back today. My usual order - develop only, no cut, no print. $6.00 plus tax at Sam's Camera Exchange

Digitized with my Canon 40D and 100mm f/2.8 macro and processed in Aperture 3.

The strange and interesting Anhinga, this one found drying itself on the rocks of Jupiter Inlet, in Florida, USA.

Leica IIIa

These images were taken with my 1936 Leica IIIa with a 50mm f/2 Summar lens. The film is Kodak Gold 400, and had been sitting in the camera for perhaps a year. I don't even know where the tree shot was taken.

Olympus PEN EE

These images were made with my recently acquired Olympus PEN EE and expired Kodak Gold 100 film. I ask my lab to develop only; no cut, no print; then I capture digitally with a makeshift film stage, a flash and diffuser, and my Canon 40D with the 100mm f/2.8 macro lens.  The PEN is a half frame camera; I capture two half frames in each shot with the Canon. Some I left together, I thought they made nice diptychs that way. I could, of course, rotate my macro lens 90 degrees, and get more pixels on each image; perhaps for the next roll.

It's a fun little camera to use, built like a tank and quite heavy for it's size. I'm hoping for finer results with some non-expired film ( I currently have a roll of Foma b&w in it, which is also expired, but only by a little), but I thought these shots had a certain charm to them.

Neopan 1600

I've finished scanning in my last two rolls of Fuji Neopan 1600. 
I shot them in my newly acquired Nikon FE, with a Nikkor 50mm f/1.,4 lens.

The design of the FE is near perfect, and I am really enjoying this camera.

I learned after I shot these two rolls that Fuji has discontinued production of Neopan 1600. I had hoped to run a lot more of that stuff through this camera. Oh well.

Lucky me!


A friend of a friend gifted me some nice old cameras...the Rollei B35 and Olympus Pen EE seen here, plus a Nikon FE with a sweet 50mm f/1.4 lens.
