Phound Photos Volume 4

I bought another lot of expired film. One of the 120 rolls, some Kodak 200 of unknown provenance and vintage, was exposed. I gambled a few bucks and took it for processing with the color roll from an upcoming camera-of-the-week.

Processed by The Camera Shop of Santa Fe and scanned at 2400DPI on the CanoScan 9000f.

The images are 2 1/4 inches (~6cm) and they’re vertical, as in if the film is hanging, the images are right-side-up, so I think it’s from a TLR or a 120 SLR like a Hasselblad or Mamiya that doesn’t feed film sideways. There is vignetting on some of the shots and the film spacing was all over the place so it was probably a cheaper camera. Not a Hasselblad at any rate since there aren’t any edge markings on the frames.

I’m pretty sure the light leaks are from after the film was shot. It wasn’t very tight on the spool.

I think it's a golf course.

I have to look at the frame numbers — I don’t know if the double exposure is before, after, or more probably, in between the other shots of the same scenes.

It looks kind of like Los Alamos.  Wouldn't that be a bizarre journey for the film.

52 Cameras: Camera 94 part 2 — Sony DSC-T700

I seem to have misplaced one folder full of images from this camera. Here are a few more in the meantime.

52 Cameras: Camera 93 part 2 — Kodak Retina IIIc

The “Capital C” Retina goes for a lot more $. It’s almost the same camera but it was the last of the folding Retinas. A put a couple of the differences in the video but I’ll list them here. The later IIIC has: 1) Single-range meter (no flip-up door); 2) Larger RF window; 3) Frame lines for lenses other than the 50mm. There are some small cosmetic differences to accommodate the listed changes but that’s it. If you’re a collector (believe me, I understand Gear Acquisition Syndrome, I have a bad case of GAS myself), go for it. If you want an all-mechanical classic to shoot with, don’t overlook the small-c Retina IIIc.

If I missed anything, drop me a note in the comments on Youtube.

Expired (unknown vintage) Kodak Ektachrome 100. I developed in Unicolor E6 which I’ve had way too long and this is the fifth roll from a quart kit. The first B&W developer keeps working as long as the development time is increased. There’s no time adjustment for the second color developer but the color keeps getting funkier. I have one roll left so I’m going to push my luck…

52 Cameras: Camera 92 part 2 — Apple QuickTake 200

Right at three years ago, I used the camera’s video out and captured a couple of images without a memory card.

EXIF shows a shutter speed of '2'.  Manual says the shutter goes to 1/4 second so I don't know what that means.
