2005. But I have it packed away in a camera bag with lenses, because one day I may want to show my grandchildren how real photography is done!

2002 on a trip to Weimar in (former East) Germany. A Minolta compact.

Here are 3 shots I took with the Voigtlander on a previous trip to Mexico. The first is with Ektachrome 100, the other 2 are with Kodak BW400CN (I haven't had a chance to get this trip's film developed yet)


Thanks for sharing JohnnyG,

Great colours from Ektarchrome, I had used it only once, and although I was not impressed, (this might had to do with the subjects, lighting, my skill, or printing) here we see a wonderful display of colours in the sky Smile I favour BCN400BW, for its punchy contrast well seen on the bottom picture. I feel like saying "thanks for the memories Kodak" but it may be not timely.

The Ektachrome gives a creamy smoothness to the colors in the picture. Great for sunsets and portraits.Grin


feel better about it now, I had no portraits and no sunrises and sunsets taken with it, honestly it looked like I was shooting Kolak Color 200iso. Next film to load my camera will be a fujifilm colour negative 200iso. It's good for green colours supposedly. Got a couple of hard months ahead.

Take a look through the gallery :=))


Used mine last night and planning on using it later this afternoon. Love the experience.

I threw out my EOS 1n yesterday.

There was a minor shutter problem and it wasn't worth the cost of the repair, so not being much of a hoarder of broken things, it is now gone. I still have the motordrive for it, as that still works like new and I still have a mint AE1 in black and a full suite of FD lenses that all work perfectly.


I shot two frames today, just placed a roll of 24 exposures inside today.

Just shot about 1/2 a dozen shots with my Kiev rangefinder. Still working my way through the first film I put in it. Can't wait to see how this old beauty performs.

Now thats a classy looking camera Wink

The Kiev is really a Contax because it was made using the tooling that the Ruskies took from the Zeiss works at Dresden. Strangely, the Ica Works didn't get damaged in the big raid.
