    Well, I wouldn't want to call a 'he' a 'she' or vice versa, so 'it' seemed the least offensive option!

    Please pass on my apologies to the slighted canine in question.

    Cheers, Jeff

    What I'm trying to get across is how do you know which one of us is which?

    Went to London with my 'Gift' MINOLTA X-700 loaded with outdated 'Lloyds Pharmacy ' ( AGFA) 200 film i rated at 160 ASA -- I had previously tested another cassette about a year ago with a Pentax SF-7 and rated it at 100ASA and processed it myself and negs were very dense so gave THIS one to 'Boots' of Brentwood High Street and their C41 process was very good and negs were better at 160 ASA even though film was so old. I show a couple of snaps taken on Horse Guards London. One with the MC Tele-Rokkor-QF 200mm f3.5 and onw with MD 50mm f1.7

    With those muted colours and mad reds, they could almost be K14 Kodachrome.

    Gave my lovely 1955 MINOLTA Autocord an outing to Blackmore Village about 7 miles from Brentwood -- as usual. as soon as I arrived it clouded over and started to spit with RAIN ! I had loaded one of the last 120 rolls of 1993 dated ORWO NP22 film which I had bought in bulk before the ORWO factory went broke and processed in in liquid Promicrol 1+14 for 12 minutes.

    At last i finished up a 2011 dated Kodak Colorplus 200 in my latest 'Gift' camera , the 1971 CHINON TTL 'Prinzflex' and had it processed and prints to 6x4 by Bill at Brentwood BOOTS branch -- excellent prints. After renovating camera I checked battery and found it was 'out' compared with a Weston Master V -- i had to set 400 ASA on camera to get it to agree with Weston set to 160 ASA for the film. I got good exposures, using various M42 fit lenses and scanned the Prints with an HP Scanjet 4570c flatbed + Vuescan Pro + FastStone Image Viewer to resize and slightly adjust for contrast and colour.

    Well those Chinon standard lenses always were rather good, but I'm staggered that that Jupiter shot could have come straight out of my copy of Technical and Optical Equipment's "New Horizons in Sight and Sound" book from the late 70s - TOE were the importers of Russian cameras and radios, and New Horizons was kind of a cross between a fancy sales pamphlet and an instruction manual. That the look from the lens is the same is no surprise; that the colour is the same, though, I find amazing.

    I got that Russian Jupiter for £1 at our Camera Club annual Auction ! Now the Auctions are finished as nobody wants to sell their All-Singing-All-Dancing DIGITAL stuff !
    I have used it on Digital as well as Film -- focus is stiff -- Russian grease left over from Tank Battle of Kursk no doubt ----

    1. Well that's some bargain. I do have one in a Kiev/Contax bayonet for my Kiev 4, and another one in a different bayonet for my weirdo Kiev 10 and 15, but I've never used that one in anger, and I've not used the Kiev 4 in years. Must dust it off.

    I found a couple of trannies never scanned taken on my Pentax 6x7 M/U bought 18/11/1980 -- is it now a 'Relic'? The FILM is a Relic !!

    CT18! Now you're taking me back! I liked that film, and CT21. Pleasing colours for the time, much more to my taste than Kodachrome.

    I gave my OLYMPUS OM-1 MD and OM-10 an outing. I Loaded a short length of 1991 dated AGFAPAN 25 in the OM-1 MD and Fuji Velvia of Unknown Age in the OM-10, rating it at 32 ASA. I had to change the BATTERY of OM-1 MD half-way through after getting strange exposure readouts and testing with old Weston Master V. -- Well I processed 8 frames only in cassette of Agfapan 25 in RODINAL 1+50 for 10.5 mins @ 20oC as I thought it needed a bit longer from first tests . Velvia not used up yet. I show a few snaps from AGFAPAN 25 ---

    Well, it's about time I posted something on my own thread! I took my Nikkormat ELW to Cropredy, and took a few piccies. Despite me working out how the meter actually worked and deciding to use it... forgetting it was set to 400 and the film was 200... they've mostly turned out OK especially for scans of High Street prints.

    You may wonder why there's a photo of the queues for the lavs. Just look carefully at the gender of the queuees!

    Continuing my Forays with the 'Loaned' Olympus OM-4Ti gear -- I found an even OLDER Agfapan 25 in Fridge dated 07/1990 -- well, seeing how the 1991 came out I tried it at 25 ASA and this time tried my 'Home-Made ' ID11 1=3 dilution for a change -- did some research but could find only 'APX 25' NOT the older emulsion. It said 18 mins for APX 25 but i gave it 15 mins @20oC and although a few negs were 'thin' they scanned well .. I CUT the film and processed 8 frames. Next time I will try 17 mins .
    Radio-Active Zuiko MC 35mm f2 lens -- 'yellowed' but it acts like a filter for B&W photos !

    Sinked the roll I shot in my Voigtlander Brillant last night - for those not in the know, this is the Daddy of the Lubitel, a Bakelite pseudo-TLR.
