"Scanned" with Rodagon, film is Rollei Digibase CN 200 Pro (negative)
(this film is good for traditional scanning but not so much for copying with camera in my opinion)

Biogon 21mm:






Planar 35mm:

nice series of tractors!
why do you think this film is not good for camera copying, result look encouraging for a first try
how did you reverse the negative?

Because it is a low contrast film. It helps with scanners (that don't have RAW), but with RAW, I prefer film with more acutance, that preserve more details, and to adjust contrast in the RAW parameters.

It is true that the results are nice, but this is because I have been using my best lenses, that make up for this film's acutance limitation

I didn't Wink
This is a special negative film, that is built without the orange mask. A simple Ctrl+I is enough to obtain a good base. Of course you still have to white balance afterwards.

Interesting set of old machinery - I especially enjoyed that panned shot, pic 6.
That reminds me, I have some similar old tractor stuff taken a couple of months ago.

The more I see from this cam/lens, the more I think I need one. Please, stop showing pics like these! Wink
