yesterday I went to London with Wife and I took my 'Gift' Contax RTS II Quartz with the Winder W-3 and BOY -- was it HEAVY !! I had some FP4 + loaded and took a few round Trafalgar Square of the 'Characters' there with the 50mm f1.4 Carl Zeiss planar T* and the Yashica 80-200mm f4 ML Zoom - film not finished up yet.

Today I went out with my 'gift' Yashica FR1 with the three lenses and the winder I got working -- it was given together with the Contax RTS II Quartz. I had loaded some Tri-X B&W and got some candids but not processed yet.

WoW !! Another 'Frame' shot -- and I thought I was 'tight' with amount of film I shoot, even getting 38 frames from a 36 exp or 27 frames from a 24 exposure !!

Night shots last night Smile Yes, I do get 38 exposures out of a 36 frame roll and 26 on average by a 24 exposure roll. I must become more adamant about these half left frames which don't get developed by the developers, lol. It must be a joy to develop and print yours Pete.

Recently retired and planning to get back into film after selling my soul to digital 12 years ago. Have my darkroom set up and fully equipped and using Mamiya 645 and RB67 cameras.

Having bought my first film slr just last week, for a college course, I shot the final 12 shots of the 36 exposure this morning. Looking forward to processing them myself as part of the course.

ps I've a Nikon F90x with a 28-80mm lens.

Two weeks ago at the Goodwood Revival with my Leica M4P,had to think about exposure which was great,really slowed me down and with fixed focal length lens actually thought about composition.Made a change from my 5d and zoom lenses,plus about half the weight to carry around.

Today, as I was returning from our Library, I must have shot about 5 frames, I did buy two rolls of new film too. Hey, it's fresh, it expires in 2016!
