It’s Mamiya C330 time!
After seeing the scans from this camera I insta-tweeted how much I loved it. The photos were alright, compositional/exposure-ally speaking, but the look from them was beautiful, to me.
I ended up using a roll of Foma 400 and a roll of Kodak Vericolor 3 which expired around the 80’s but hadn’t been kept well until it reached me. In fact, I think it may have taken a few extra bars of health off my new C41 kit.
First roll through this lovely camera was the Foma 400.
We went to Hill of Tarvit which was giving me one heart murmur after another thanks to a violently unhappy child.
Photography in the building wasn’t permitted but fine on the grounds and
maybe in the Laundry House. The last two frames above were taken at 1/8, ƒ2.8 or ƒ3.5 while balancing the camera on table edges.
Since I think of medium format film as some sort of gold bullion I try not to blast through rolls like a 35mm camera so I held off the last few frames for family.
Developing: 11m in stock Microphen at around 20º semi-stand (also developing a roll of 35mm HP5Plus at 1600), fix for 5m Rapid Fixer 1+4.
Kodak Vericolor 3 or VPS film, 160ASA re-rated at ISO100.
I kept this roll mostly for family stuff with a little exception.
This structure I’ve found interesting for a couple of years now. I wonder what it might have been used for?
The field around the structure was full of dug up broccoli.
I still struggle composing and focusing on moving objects like wee kids so that’s my explanation for this blurry photo of Anna.
… and for this sharper one.
The house we stayed in.
A miss fire …
The morning glow through our bedroom curtains.
Only 7 photos out of 12 due to a few failed ideas.
Developing: Tetenal Colortec C41 for 3m 20s, BLIX for 4m.
There might be an addendum to this as I believe I loaded the last roll of Vericolor while on holiday but I’m not sure.
