Light at the end of the tunnel (156/365)

So yesterday I did the Ride for Heart and this is yesterday’s photo. I’m sorry it’s late. I woke up at 4AM to ride at 6AM for 75kms. When I got home I took a nap, woke up, ate dinner, then went to sleep.

Anyways fun thing I brought a Yashica 35mm film rangefinder and a Nex3 but the Nex had become a dickhead and decided my SD card that was previously in my M8 was too decadent for it and it refused to take an image with that card. I didn’t want to format all my photos away so I only had the Yashica to use and a Sony Dead Weight to carry.

Camera: Yashica Electro 35 GTN

Film: Fujifilm Neopan ISO 400
Scanner: Canoscan 4950

Don’t Gamble with your films (142/365)

Don’t Gamble with your films, using cheap films is like taking a chance with a claw machine. Always buy Kodak T-Max 100.

Brought to you by the people at Kodak

I just thought of a fun little photo to do. The title is kind of reminiscent of the don’t smoke TV ads they use to run. If kodak were to do a film version of those I imagine it’s sound like that.

Mamiya press polaroid (28/365)

Went to shoot rock climbers today. I decided to go old school and I brought a mamiya press universal with a polaroid back to get a few nice shots.

So, since the beginning of this en devour to the world of instant photography I’ve noticed that this is pricey and addictive. A lot like smoking.

Every week I use a pack and that rate is slowly but surely climbing. Soon it’ll be 2 packs a week and if I don’t I’ll get the shakes.

My point is, I have 11 packs left. I feel like I’m going to run out. Then what? I don’t know! But I sure as hell ain’t sticking around for that. So is it wrong that I’m contemplating buying 9 more packs of Fuji-3000FP B/W polaroid film?

Ok,

So today was a bit of an ass of a day.

I discovered my 100mm F2.8 Mamiya sekor lens was out of calibration. It took me an hour to figure out it was because the calibrating screw was slipping out of calibration after every attempt to set it back in place. So a bit of glue fixed that. However that was not the end of the issues. I soon discovered that the body itself was out as well, while infinity focus was preserved close focusing was off by as much as a foot. Now this was a big issue. This was a new issue for me that took me a bit of reading up on to figure out. So it turns out the Mamiya press cameras have 2 calibrations screws one for close distances (2-3m) then infinity. You have to calibrate infinity then go back and do close and then check both, adjust each accordingly until you find the right combo of adjustments to get both correctly.

This would be fine except that I literally tried so many times that I wore down my calibration screw for the close focus and it felt like it was going to snap.

I eventually calibrated the Mamiya universal, and upon checking my Mamiya Super 23 I discovered with the ground glass that this camera was off as well so I spent another 45 minutes fine tuning that and concluded it was as good as it was going to get.

Here’s the kicker. Now I decided to run through a pack of B/W fuji instant film to just see my results. I got so excited that I popped out 2 shots before realising that I had the darkslide on. Then in a massive brain fart that probably caused a stroke in my brain. I TOOK THE BACK OFF AND THEN REMOVED THE DARK SLIDE. At that point I proceeded to swear A LOT and on shot 4 I got a result. The result was that I needed a tiny bit of tuning, the camera was off by a little bit and the shot afterwords worked out great. So now it’s all good.

The moral of the story is… Don’t be a moron and own an expensive camera at the same time. It’ll only get more expensive, trust me I know what it’s like to feel my wallet on fire.

On the plus side of all this I discovered the Dr. Who “I am the Doctor” Music and playing that really brought up my motivation to keep going on these cameras.

My question is, do I now try to calibrate the third and last Mamiya camera (A super 23, first gen, the range finder is different from the other 2 and almost entirely all glued down)?

Hey,

So today I bit the bullet. I only had 2 packs of Polaroids left. So I went to B&H and decided to buy a pack. Or to be more precise, 9 packs. 5 Black and white FP-3000, and 4 FP-100C. I’m just trying to prepare for the arrival of my Mamiya universal’s polariod back. Plus the creation of the SI-Holga mark II (That can be read about here http://greedphotography.tumblr.com/post/12914539166/presenting-my-first-attempt-at-a-polaroid-holga).

Anyways I’m excited for more polaroids to come.

Cheers
