Just a touch of camera shake on that one of the small farm, Andy? I find that's the only downside to the Ensign Selfix 16/20, it's easy to pull the camera a bit when pressing the shutter button and the choice of 1/100 to 1/300 is quite a big jump exposure-wise if I'm trying to go for a high enough speed to eliminate any camera movement. I really wish it had 1/125 or 1/150 as a shutter speed choice instead of 1/100 for that reason.
I have to admit, I have never been a big fan of Ektar, until now. The Voightlander 35mm F1.4 produces lovely images.
I am getting on well with the M6, the shutter is louder than other rangefinders I have used, and it gets a lot of attention on the streets, making it ironically less stealthy than the cult of Leica like to portray. But it is a beautiful camera, and the brightest viewfinder I have used on a rangefinder.
The light meter was a pain at first, but it didn't take long to get used to, the arrows point in the direction for you to move the aperture dial in.
Here's a large format photo from a recent trip to Cornwall. It was made at Bedruthan steps with the tide out and the sun in full golden hour mode The sea was calm and it was essentially just the two of us there for the majority of the evening.
After spending ages squinting through the magnifying lens to focus on the eyes, don't inadvertently move the camera backwards about an inch when taking the photo! You've got to love the swirly bokeh that Yashikor triplet lens creates when wide open though.
Steampunk at the Crewe Steampunk Festival, May 2018. 1964 Yashica 635 TLR, Yashikor f/3.5 on Ilford XP2 400.
I bet photos of that used to look great until someone decided to put a stainless steel bollard in front of it!
I've been given an old photo album to scan, belonging to my great grandmother who passed away a couple of years ago.
I've managed to get them all scanned to the best of my ability and thought I'd share some with you guys.
Went to London for 100th Anniversary of the RAF -- thousands of people -- Horseguards closed off to the Great Unwashed Public ( OR EX-ARMY like ME !) so could not see the Aircraft parked there. Gave my MINOLTA Dynax 5 an outing loaded with outdated Fuji Sensia II rated 80 ASA. I got few of the Parade in The Mall -- disappointed with the 'focus' on a lot -- not really sharp so did not scan many. Used the Minolta AF Zoom 70-210 mm f3.5-4.5 lens then waited for Flypast -- I took manual reading off a light building as sky was all grey overcast BUT aircraft were a bit OVER-exposed -- none worth showing.
Went on the London Film Photography Group last trip to Rotherhithe and Thames Path area with my Minolta Dynax 40 loaded with 01/1991 dated Agfapan 25 and my Dynax 5 loaded with outdated Fuji Sensia II slide film.
I show a few of the E6 Sensia II results.
