The film is Fuji 200 i got with a camera lot from a Craigslist ad. It was in his garage and I have no idea how old it is. Pretty grainy so I did some noise reduction and minor tone tweaks. Processed and scanned by Gold One Hour Photo in Los Angeles, CA.
At this rate I may collect the whole set. This is another awesome camera.
The next two photos and the ones at the end of the video were shot with the Series E 50mm f/1.8 lens on expired Fujicolor Super HQ 100 film.
The next photos were shot using a Tokina AT-X 28-85mm zoom I got on a Nikon FE. It’s not super bright, f/3.5-4.5, but it’s not a bad walking around lens and the macro is pretty good. From what I could find on line, close focus is 1.5 feet at 28mm. Seems about right — I didn’t biff too many flower shots. Film is a 12 exposure roll of expired Kodak Gold 200.
Some grain from the old Kodak 400 film but not bad. Processed in Unicolor C-41 and scanned on the Canoscan 9000f at 4800DPI. Slight color tweaks and resized for upload.
I still have trouble maintaining proper temperature but color processing is getting a little easier.
This post is a bit of a cheat — none of the images are from the past week. I just haven’t shot anything that interesting this week compared to the hundreds of good images this camera has provided.
More examples from this camera:
I never made it to Shasta. We had a family emergency the day before my flight. Unless it pulls a Mt. Saint Helens, it’ll be there next year.
Kodak Gold 200 film.
I don’t expect much from drugstore processing but this was just awful. Low-res, noisy, and they actually managed to introduce dust. Bleh.
Processing/scanning SNAFU aside, this is a nice camera with a super-sharp lens.
The ‘L’ series had a lot of variants over the years including a waterproof, manually (zone) focusable version, the Nikon L35AW AF, the macro (0.45m) Nikon L35 AF-3, and many features were incorporated into the sought-after (and expensive) titanium-bodied 35Ti and 28Ti.
