I’ve sold my Hasselblad and had to give up a Rolleiflex that was going to be way to expensive to repair. But I did’t wanna give up on medium format photography just yet and so I put a roll of film through my very very old Rolleicord. A bit simpler then a Rolleiflex, but still a good camera. However I did dread the results of the film.
Turns out the images look fantastic. Nice crisp and sharp, no haze or anything. So although a really good Rolleiflex remains a wish-list item, for the moment I’ll very happily shoot my Rolleicord!
Last year 77 Bombay Street toured the Netherlands as well and opened for Kensington in Vanslag then. Now they’re back doing a small promo-tour through the Netherlands and for their final concert here they came back to Vanslag in Borger for what would turn out to be a fantastic evening.
The clouds in the sky were like a piece of art this evening (second version here):
Wanted to try out the ‘new’ 1973 Leica Elmar-C 90mm lens and the quickest results are of course on the Fujifilm X-Pro1, so I mounted the lens on the X-Pro1 and went for a walk tonight.
The Leica Elmar-C 90mm came in today, completing (for the moment) the full setup. The lens also works on the Fujifilm X-Pro1 with a small adapter, resulting in this quick unedited test-shot.
And talking about camera gear… I have my Leica M6 complete! I received a gorgeous Gordy Strap to replace the basic Leica one and an ‘el cheapo’ lens hood from somewhere in China. It might not be an original Leica but looking at the prices a second hand Leica lens hood goes for there’s no way I’m spending that kind of money on that. This cost €4,50 via Ebay and I found an ever cheaper one not much later… And what I saved will pay a return ticket to Barcelona if needed
Now I said it’s this is my Leica completed, but…. well, just wacht this space in a few days. That’s all I’m gonna say now 😉
With my Rolleiflex Automat camera gone forever I want to see how my (even older) Rolleicord manages, so took that for a ride today. Handles very well, all the variables are easily set. Will fill the roll soon to see how the results are and if it’s all good, it will go along to see the Amalfi coast (together with a Leica M6 and a Fujifilm X-Pro1)
