Thanks! I respooled from 120, in a dark bag. One of these days I'll try some color, the lab in Hoboken returns the spindle.

Very nice results, Jussi, you should be more careful handling the negatives,
left your thumb print on that silo, looks like. Wink Smile My attempts at
respooling 120 were singularly unenjoyable.

These are really nice. Makes me think, I have a roll of 120 Delta 100 somewhere I have to have processed.

Makes me think, I have a roll of 120 Delta 100 somewhere I have to have processed. And that makes me think, I have some Seal Harbor pictures for you from a couple of weeks ago that I need to finish.

Ron, answering his thread twice in a row isn't gonna bring him back. I think
I pissed him off with my thumb print comment. Laughing

Ron, it appears the ball is in your court. 'Will you stand and share the bounty,
or will you be given up?' Always liked that line in Barry Lyndon, 1975. Smile

I will try to get them up tomorrow. The wife has tomorrow off so I can't promise anything. When she is home I have to obey my master. Good thing is she is really starting to like photography as long as she can carry the 5DMII.

Shocked HOW did you train a wife to caddy for you? I understand the instilling pride in being entrusted the Big Gun part, but I find wives usually reverse any training attempt and the husband ends up carrying her stuff instead. Laughing

It all started when we went to the Harbor and she couldn't see the LCD in the sun in her new P&S she bought last fall. I told her she should have bought something with a viewfinder and to try my digital 5DMII. Now she wants to get rid of the P&S and get a camera with a viewfinder. Maybe a 400D. I'm happy as a clam.

Bad thing is that my daughter will want Daddy to buy her one also even though she is married now.

LOL, so it goes on even after they are married?

My daughter has the better digital cam - she got a white K-x and I have a K100D. She also stole my SP1000. Now she's going to a Parsons summer photo course and I'll see whether she gloms onto the Nikon FE + Tamron 35-80 or will she like the Minolta Xe5 + MD 35-70. So far the FE is her favorite.

I used to soot 120 in a Monitor 620. Inhad lots of trouble withnthevwhole respooling thing till i realized that the only major difference between a 620 spool and a 120 spool is that the 12 flanges are a little larger in diameter. So I put the 120 spool , film and all on a lathe and turned down the diameters. Fast and easy. P

It was, or may be still is, the workshop in California called the Bold Mountain. They can convert Medalists to 120. Many moons ago I did it by myself, using Dremel and a couple of magic words. I have edit grip and, most helpful, the focusing ring get a click on infinity. This Medalist II was my working horse for decade, I love it even after 15 years of practicing Digital.
Remarkable camera, incredible lens, it was a war time copy of Voightlander's Heliar, but after WWII they sue the Kodak, it was end of Medalists.


Bryce Canyon. Ilford HP400, amber filter.

That is awesome canyon shooting... The Medalist was Laura Gilpin's favorite:

From Arthur Elgort's wonderful book "Camera Crazy" -
"The famous photographer Laura Gilpin in Santa Fe. Her friends and contemporaries were Ansel Adams and Edward Weston. She's holding a Kodak Medalist 2 1/4 - her favorite camera. 1976"

This camera is remarkable, dropped from Empire State Building it will work!
Ones two hoodlulms had tried to attack me in NYC, I wrap the strap of Medalist over my arm and they run away.
