A comprehensive history of Koni cameras: http://www.peterlanczak.de/koni_overview.htm
Ilford HP5 developed in HC110. Beautiful, contrast-y stuff.
Heavy noise reduction on all. I hope some of it is scanner noise rather than grain so I can re-scan at higher resolution on a couple of them.
There was a weird dust splat and I did a little color correction on this one.
Color correction for the old film.
Boosted the mid-tones. The noise reduction tends to make things look flat and this could’ve used flash.
You never know what sleepers are out there or what camera will click with you. I may not keep it — my office is starting to look like an episode of “Hoarders” — but I really like shooting with it.
Aperture selection via the ISO and flash settings:
- 100 w/ flash — f/4
- 200 w/ flash — f/5.6
- 100 no flash — f/8
- 200 no flash — f/11
- 400 no flash — f/16
There was a lot of scanner noise (got a CD with processing) so this shot has heavy noise reduction and a small exposure boost in Photoshop.
The nice thing about a wide-angle lens (35mm) is you get decent depth of field, even with a large aperture. I like this shot better than the one in the video. Instead of looking down on the flowers, they lead you back into the forest.
The reflections in his eyes and on the floor (probably cat litter from his feet) have the diamond shape of the aperture.
Some noise reduction on this one. Also, I clone-stamped in Photoshop to remove cat barf I hadn’t noticed when I took the picture.
I sold this camera but here’s what it looked like.
