I finally restarted b&w developing after 30 years - first a 35mm film, but immediately 120. Neopan Acros has a long tonal range and therefore seems less contrasty, perhaps the T-max develper has a hand in it. I decided to accentuate this in the scan, then add a bit of contrast in photoshop. Ricoh Diacord G - released in 1958, 80mm f3.5 Rikenon. The G has 10 aperture blades vs. 5 in the Diacord L.

Super looking shots - You haven't lost the knack then! Smile And the Diacord/Acros combination looks excellent.

Laughing Yeah, maybe I should go into business, heh. It was fun, and a whole lot cheaper than paying a lab. Thanks guys...






I think I had a yellow filter on, in this setup - a Bay1 -> Series 6 adapter, the filter nestled in it, held in by the lens shade.

You nailed that Victorian, perfect exposure! (Was an instant fave on flickr).

I'll be trying the yellow filter that screws on the wide lens to my Koni.
