Nice coverage by the old lens. 6X9cm is a lot of film.
This one is cropped & contrast tweaked – not sure if it was lens flare or a light leak.
I scanned at 4800DPI so it made some huge (20+MB) files. Preview.app on the laptop was really struggling to resize the images. The images displayed while the hamster wheel was working full blast are interesting.

Kodak Tri-X 400, develop by 12/2016. I bought it new and it’s been frozen. Developed in HC-110 H (1+63) for 9 minutes at 68F. Scanned on the CanoScan 9000f at 2400DPI. I used both Canon’s software and Vuescan and picked whichever version I liked better. The bird bath in the video is a merged image from both.
It’s only fair — I took a picture of the Franka with the Photura
I think the vignetting is not entirely the camera’s fault. I was pretty close with 400 film and the Vivitar flash I used didn’t actually have the combination of speed and distance on its chart so I kind of winged it and used f/32.

The junk at the top is from over-agitating during development.
Playing with the double exposure
Zoomed in to clean up dust specks, I noticed Jem’s face in the branches (screen grab PNG).
Cool effects with double exposure and a slow shutter speed.
This was more of a “catch it falling off the post because I don’t have a tripod” kind of deal.
And this was a “Did I wind? I’m pretty sure I wound.” I do love the pastels when Portra is overexposed.
Did I really use film that wasn’t expired? I could be on to something!
I was cleaning the office/workshop while the pigeons ferried buckets of bits to Youtube. Not able to find anything clean, but less dangerous. I discovered I had one unused frame in an Instax Mini. I loaded it by feel into the Milona inside the dark bag, shot it, and then put it back into the Instax for processing. I didn’t get it lined up quite right but not bad.
One warning if you decide to go this route: The 620 film slot and the corresponding piece in the camera that turns it are smaller. Make sure the adapted roll is smooth on the ends and rotates freely. Otherwise, the bit inside the camera may rotate inside the slot of the film spool and break it. Filing the end of the spool makes it even weaker. See my experience using a 120 spool in a Rover (Diana) camera.
