A popular film and for very good reasons. Three different camera/lens combinations:

1. OM10, Zuiko 1.8/50

Great examples Katastrofo! Really shows the quality of the film.

Skida, have to check but think I took these in either 2008 or 2009 when I got
back into film. It was my first roll of KG100, and is one of my fave films. The
middle picture was actually taken with the Macro-Hexanon.

EDIT: taken in 2008

This is another roll of Kodak Gold 100, exp 2006 that I got from Moira.
All with the Kodak Signet 50, using the Watameter II as a focusing aid:

I have always put a roll of Kodak Gold through any new camera I suppose to give me a baseline comparison but also largely because it's a 1/roll.

Here then are a recent three:

Mamiya Auto Metra 2 which is locked at infinity focus. (I didn't know whether this was through intent or lack of maintenance and whilst I've just had it sent off for examination it was returned in the same state with a note saying "parts no longer available": I guess I'll cope Rolling Eyes


Yashica Minister



Olympus Trip

Very well done, Jussi, especially like the first two. Not familiar with that
Pentax outfit, but looks a great performer (in your hands).

Have some from OOD gold, dev at the supermarket. I used gold (and anything else) mainly for checking lenses etc... I posted these before but dumb me have loads of folders with details on but on many of them had forgotten to put the film I was using down Sad

Kiron 28-105 erm not happy with the greens, but if you use OOD film how can you complain.

Bill.....that's a very good advert for Kodak gold 100.

I wonder if anyone has bothered to test all the films on the same subject with same camera, lens, lab etc..... I can sorta compare OOD superia 200 with OOD Reala on holiday, so next year it would be interesting to take a roll of Agfa vista or Gold 100 with my usual Reala.... erm although the lenses would be different as it would be Canon and M42 or Hexanon and the shots could be mixed up...anyway I'll still do it Cool

Excal thanks, and looking forward to your results! Smile

Those shots with the subdued greens probably aren't far from reality, Excal, and I like them a lot.

Those are real quality Katastrofo!

Thanks for making this sticky, Attila!

All of my shots were taken using "sunny 16" calculations and, if it is sunny, they will more than likely be f16 at 1/250th or f11 at 1/500th

Why does my FIRST one not 'come through' properly ? I have had the same trouble before on this site.
PS -- although the 100-300mm lens on last one is really an 'Auto-Focus' it does NOT WORK ( it was FREE with camera! ) so Manual.
