    They look really good, Steve, the tones could be a century old.

    I know how they feel...

    Thanks Adrian. The Noon is a lovely camera, but once I got the film out of it, if it was possible to make a mistake, I made it.

    Did the foam on the rollfilm backs of my 1968 MAMIYA Press Super 23 that I have not used for YEARS ! I Gave it an outing in my Garden during the 'Lockdown' with a roll of 120 09/1987 Dated Kodak VR 400 found in fridge . I tried rating it at 50 ASA which on processing in C41 was about right ! There was a HUGE FOG LEVEL but IMAGES !! Some had Lens flare and some were too boring to scan. This was with the 100mm f3.5 Sekor lens and a little back movement. 1/15th @ f11

    Vito II, R80s Rodinal semistand:

    I was expecting golf ball grain, but almost none. No noise reduction, just a touch of sharpening and contrast. No idea why, but Rodinal semistand again in future methinks.

    Funny you should say that, Pete, I've just picked up a Voigtlander Ultramatic that must be the same date, judging by the logo in the wind indicator. Unfortunately my shutter is toast - it's actualy rusted together - so won't be producing results like yours again.

    I don't know who was styling Voigtlander's cameras at the time, but don't they look good?

    I hadn't realised just how small the III's were. This was just a test film, but I found myself liking it more and more. Possibly even more than the Vito II...

    edit to spell "than".

    I've only ever handled a pre-M once, but it was jewel-like, and an absolute delight in the hand. Must be good if you like it more than the Vito II, given how much that butters your parsnips!

    If you do come to Anglesey, you can borrow it for a couple of days.
