I love that wall. Shot on Kodak 160NC 35mm. I took the same shot with Ilford Delta 3200, can't wait to develop it, that wall will wash away into a sea of noise!

Lovely shot! I can see why you like the wall, makes a great OOF backdrop on the composition. Make sure to post a scan of the Iflord version when you get it developed.

Someone considering something different than 35mm could go medium format... or do something really odd and go 110.



Oh sure, it doesn't have the image quality of medium format, but it's so much fun, and it will fit in your pocket, even with a full set of lenses!

I've got a couple of my SLRs with half-shot rolls in them right now from my sister-in-law's wedding... a 3200 and a 400 ISO, both b/w... gotta finish them off and see how they turned out.

Were you successful in you covert mission?

I had one of those Looooong ago. Not a Pentax though, can't recall the brand now, but it was fun and easy to shoot with. Thanks for the trip down memory lane .

I love using my Pentax 110, but the film is getting hard to find.

I have been wacthing Ebay for a Yashica mat 124G and, I don't know what's gotten into everyone's coffee, but they ain't selling for $150 anymore except for "as is, found this in a storage locker, don't know anything about cameras, but ask any question you want"

I have also established there are no servicers of Yashica's anywhere near me, and people around here have been sending their's to Mark Hama for repair (which is great, but pricey when shipping to and from Canada). And as for the prices on Rolleis not being sold for parts .

So now I am considering a Mamiya C330 as they are seeming to price the same as the Yashica. Anyone with experience with the Mamiya? I like the interchangeable lens and the bellows, but will also need to get a light meter which may not be required with the Yashica.

If anyone has experience with the Mamiya, I would love to hear it. My main goal is I would like to shoot 6x6 as opposed to 6x4.5, so if you have other suggestions, I would be happy to hear them as well.

Thanks!

I haven't used it for anything covert yet... but it would be good for that! (The wedding picks I mentioned were shot on a couple of my K1000s.)

I think the Pentax was the only true interchangeable-lens 110 SLR, but Minolta and maybe one or two others made fixed-lens SLR-types? I'm not sure off the top of my head.

I bought a 10-pack of Fuji film last year after getting the camera. It was brand-new and from what I understand, one of the very last batches they'd make. The 10 rolls will probably last me a lifetime. I don't expect to actually take a ton of photos with it, but it is just so much fun to play with, and to appreciate on a purely mechanical level.

Yeah I just messaged a guy on craigs list about a yachika. Scary, he would tell me it worked but wanted $140 for it. Ouch.
mamiya... well I have an RB67 and a 645af. Both are great cameras. I have sekonic L358 light meter which costs more than my RB67. But you can also meter off a dslr or 35mm body which I do alot. But the mamiyas are good cameras.

Also not sure I would trust a meter in such an old camera. They where to get u in the ball park and often tend to be reliant on a specific and expensive battery type.

Groucho - you are a baa-ad man...showing enticing pictures like that.

That Pentax 110 SLR was so intriguing I did a search on EBay and found an entire Boxed Set with Camera, auto-winder (not working), 3 lenses (18, 24, 50mm), filters, flash, etc. for $110 or so (including a ridiculous shipping charge), hopefully I'll get it for that - no bids so far.

As a reasonably competent mechanical tinkerer I have high hopes of fixing the auto winder.

So now it's off to Google to try to find someplace that sells 110 cartridges...

I was aware of them but didn't see one in person until I was buying something off else off Craigslist and happened to find out that the guy had one. He wasn't selling but let me look at it and I feel in love and had to get one!

They generally can be had for pretty cheap. Mine actually came from Adorama's used department, $40 for the camera with three lenses and the original bag. It seems to work fine; although I did manage to break the winder. A little superglue and some wire for strength and it's better than new! The one thing I found that I had to do (which I didn't notice originally) was tighten down the screws on the lens mount; it was just a touch loose when I got it. You can find the manual on the internet if you want to know more. One interesting thing is that it has a 2x crop compared to 35mm - just like 4/3rd DSLR sensors! Yet it's tiny compared to those.

It is a joy to use though; wonderful dainty manual focus, a lens cap the size of a nickel, nice mechanical noises when taking a photo, etc.

Not that I can find.

There are a few places on the inter-web selling film that was manufactured as late as 2007 though.

EBay has various mid-200x dated rolls listed at ~$5 a 12 exposure cartridge and ~$10 for 24 exposure cartridges.

Not something to shoot your entire vacation with :-)

Ouch! That's more expensive than shooting high end 35mm or 120 film! But probably not as fun

You can buy Fuji 200 speed, 2009 manufacture, here for $8.29/24 exposures. This is the stuff that I've got. I believe I bought a 10-pack off eBay; you may or may not be able to find more of it.

For developing, I think you've pretty much stuck with Dwayne's Photo.

The shot I posted was scanned directly off the negative with my Coolscan 4000. Scanning it is a bit cumbersome as I use the standard 35mm holders and move the negatives around inside the holder. (I do the same to scan disc film.) I believe that somebody makes a 110 holder, but it's ridiculously expensive, just like everything Coolscan-related! A good flatbed scanner like the Epsons may work just about as well and much easier.

You might actually get better results scanning the prints themselves, though; it seems that the grain is controlled better that way. (Same with disc film; the scanned images are quite noisy. Wet scanning may help but that's more work than I'm willing to put into it!)
