    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.
