    Suggested lenses for Italy trip?

    Thirded!! I shot some Portra 400 in Sorrento earlier in the year, also some Provia 100. There are some lovely colours to capture!! I did shoot a variety of B&W film too. I mainly shot the Portra at 200, metered for shadows.

    TMAX 3200

    I'm sure they will be great!! The first roll I shot in my Electro 35, which is aperture priority with maximum iso setting of 1000. So I started shooting the roll at 1000, but then decided I needed more speed so set it to the fixed flash sync (1/30 from memory) and shot wide open - guestimating...

    Perhaps I've been unlucky, but across 3 rolls of 120 E6, quite a few frames were very dirty. It seemed more than just dust. From memory the 35mm was clean. Maybe I was just unlucky!

    The second shot looks sharper to my eye and has better shadow detail or more tonal range. I think they both look good for 35mm. If anyone finds grain objectionable, don't try scanning medium/fast black & white with a Nikon Coolscan V!!!

    Film Developing in the UK

    On the subject of AG, for those who use their dev only option, have you found your negs to be clean? I have sent a few rolls of slide to them on two different occasions and on both, some of the negatives have been very dirty - dirtier than my home devs, in less than controlled environments...

    TMAX 3200

    As far as I understand it, the P3200 means it is designed to be pushed to 3200, and as mentioned above, it's true speed is ISO800. The development times stated by Kodak are for when it has been shot at 3200. As pushing increases contrast, it is probably a very low contrast film at it's true...

    FILM Photographer of the Year 2018 - Discussion

    I went out today with half an idea to get a shot, but nothing suitable presented itself! Still plenty of time!

    I think that is one of the better ones - but I agree, it looks ok at small sizes, I'll have to try printing a few. Viewing 1:1 on a 24" monitor makes almost any emulsion look grainy!! The first roll I tried I was using my Electro 35 and shot some at 1000, then some at 1600/3200 using the fixed...

    Yashica 124g - why the price variation?

    Totally agree with you Kevin - sure, the 124G is not as heavily built as some TLR's, but there are still plenty of them around in good working order - so they can't be that badly built!! I paid £100 for mine in good working order about 1 year ago and felt that was a fair price at the time, I...

    MW Classic cameras

    Did they not answer the phone Fraser? I have used them three times - the first time was for an RB67 lens, sent quickly and as described. Second time, an RB back and hood - the hood was the wrong one (correct type, but not the one I had picked) and the back was maybe a little poorer condition...

    Any Pentax MX or Olympus OM users out there??

    More of a curiosity!! One came up at that suited me and curiosity got the better of me, lol!!

    Any Pentax MX or Olympus OM users out there??

    Well, the OM/MX debate is on hold for a bit, as I made an impulse purchase of an M3 last weekend :help::LOL:

    MW Classic cameras

    That is odd, they actually called me about an order yesterday for a minor issue, when I called back they answered straight away, and the package has been delivered today.

    Thanks guys, and well done to everyone who entered this month!! Looking forward to the next one :)

    Any Pentax MX or Olympus OM users out there??

    Yep - found that out earlier this morning!! I assumed the OM3 would be cheaper than the OM4, but the OM3 is rarer and perhaps preferable being mechanical. I'll stick to my original plan for now - OM1 (N) or MX.

    Any Pentax MX or Olympus OM users out there??

    I have been reading this morning about the OM3 & OM4 - the 8 spot averaged metering sounds interesting!! A friend of mine has an OM4 so I'll have to ask her if I can borrow it maybe!

    Any Pentax MX or Olympus OM users out there??

    I really like the spec of the LX, but everything you read about it, is that it's unreliable :(

    Any Pentax MX or Olympus OM users out there??

    Thanks for the replies guys! Thanks for that Kevin, sounds like you were more than happy with either system!! I tried to check out your Flickr pics but the link wasn't working, so will try again later on! A bright viewfinder is always a nice thing to have - I had forgotten that the VF was...

    Any Pentax MX or Olympus OM users out there??

    For a while now I have been wanting to add a compact SLR system to my collection - mainly to help me decide whether I get on better with RF or SLR in certain situations. I had originally homed in the Olympus OM1 - simple, mechanical, compact and good glass. Something like an OM4 Ti would be...
