    Definite Victorian look to it!

    Ironically the guy who took the game away from us the next day was from Western Australia, not Victoria...

    @alfbranch @Dorset_Mike - photos from my "New" Super Ikonta - luckily the Moskva was in Scotland last year so I can tell the films apart... That and I realised as I wound it on forst I couldn't remember which window to use for 6x9! You'd think I, of all people, would know...

    No classics here either, but I rather like the one of Eskdale.

    Who did the developing?

    Peak Imaging - I've only seen the scans so far, don't know how the negs look. It wasn't the greatest week for light...

    Nice job they made too.

    The Ikonta does take nice pics.

    Difficult to level on a tripod, though, as it doesn't actually have a flat surface to stand my cube on!

    The light trail one I posted earlier, I have a *big* one to go on my wall as I accidentally ordered a 12"x18" print instead of 12"x8"! Actually looks OK - what I thought was some fringing is power lines (was taken held on a fence post, so a bit wobbly!) - the joys of 6x9 neggies!

    Thanks Steve, for some reason I always feel worried doing stand dev. process, probably the result of years of careful time keeping between inverting the tank it just does not seem right but the results usually prove me wrong to doubt myself.

    Rodinal in semi seems to cut back on the grain, especially with Rollei Rxx films. Caffenol even more so.
    I tend to use 60' as a fairly standard time. Just enough to set up stop and fix and wash in first 30', cup of tea and biccies in the second 30. Or a pint, if it's evening.


    ps I'm a twiddler, not an inverter!

    Might have to try that myself, love it on 120 but find Rodinal rather grainy on 35mm.

    I use Rodinal, 1:50, and it isn't too grainy - this was taken on Kentmere 100, developed for 15 minutes at 20 degrees C. The camera was a Praktica MTL3, with a 50mm Pentacon lens.

    3 rolls of Fomapan 100 souping like this as I tripe. Will be interested to see the results, especially as at least two of the films are from cametas I have rebuilt... and I cant remember the third one!

    Not come across that make before...

    That's what comes of posting from a tablet!

    As it turns out, I have worked on all three - I finally remembered what the third one was. Retina 010 - apparently notorious for dodgy frame spacing. That is sort of the case with this one - but the spaces are wider than usual, so no overlapping frames. If you are going to have ddodgy spacing, I guess that's the way to go.
