    Sorry Adrian, mis-read your post, thought you meant you had re-spooled the R80s. Excuse is that it was early and I was on my way to Liverpool soon.

    At last I used up a film in my 1962 ROLLEIFLEX 3.5 E Planar. It was one of the last 1993 dated ORWO NP22 120 rollfims left in my fridge. I used my 'Promicrol' Liquid as it gives very good results with NP22 BUT this time I got very 'thin' negs. Admittedly is is going a bit 'Yellow' but developed some very old TMY 400 well. Next time I will try stronger 1+9 .

    All nice, but it's the textures in the third I like best.

    Some lovely shots there Pete.An Autocord was gifted to me quite a few years ago by an uncle.
    Sadly it was stolen when my car was broken into so I never did get to use it.

    <RANT ON>I do wish people would stop using the word "gifted" as a verb. "Gifted" is a noun meaning "to possess gifts" typically in the sense of special abilities or talents. The verb is "give" and the past tense is "given" as in "I was given a camera by a friend". The source for this information is my education in general and "The New Imperial Reference Dictionary" (published by George Newnes Limited) in particular. <RANT OFF>

    I passed English Language and English Literature at 'O' Level at East Ham Grammar School so hope I remember not to 'Split Infinitives' as some News Readers do ---- !
    PS -- What a Bummer about your stolen Autocord --

    Why shouldn't you split an infinitive? Oh yes, because some over-educated Victorian pillock decided that, because you can't in Latin, it must be wrong in English!

    Split away, comrades, split away! :cool:

    OK -- here's a few taken on a 'Gift' Olympus XA form the 89 year old who gave me the Autocord. I also tested some Fuji 'Surveicolor' cut from a bulk tin now lost in the depths of my Garage 'fridge.
    I am a bit disappointed with the definition of the 35mm f2.8 Zuiko lens-- many not really 'sharp' even at f5.6 . I took the 'gate shadows' at f11 and that one is better.

    There are MORE which I did not scan -- not sharp enough

    I realy must get a film into my XA.I`ve always found the Zuiko lens pretty sharp.
    I recall I paid £100 used to Jessops many years ago.
    Sorry to offend you Andrew.(tongue in cheek):confused:
