Great images everyone. Jussi I like your color cityscape.
Bill that Skopar really draws nicely.

Jussi, sure, did you try cleaning/lubing the shutter mech? The ones posted
are from both my Tengors (color ones are Tengor #2) and am surprised
by the quality of a meniscus lens but it's a Goerz, maybe that helps. Wink

Bill these Bix Tengor pics rock!
I'm really impressed with your use of this camera.

Andy, thanks, will be taking them in the rain tomorrow as I'm hesitant
to take bellows cameras out in the rain. Will see what happens. Recommend
these for being easily cleaned. Both of mine had dirt and rust, but work
now.

I did a half hearted attempt at taking the front off, I didn't see anything obvious or anything that came off easily, so gave up... I really do need to take another look at how to get in there...

Here's from some other 6x9's - a '33 Voigtlander Rollfilmkamera Skopar, expired 160S... This one never did live up to my hopes, I've converted the camera into a zoom-pinhole, then recently I cleaned the shutter as it had been Too Powerful and I think caused shake...

I haven't managed much better than vintage looks with these two... doesn't mean it never will happen though

Good work, Jussi, I remember these. In the first pic I would've used an
SLR with at least a 200 tele (OK 2x teleconverter, too) to good effect. Wink

LOL, with 6x9 you can zoom in after the fact Wink

Kodak Medalist, excellent lens:

Yep, that there Ektar is a great lens! Nice etudes, I like the last two. Smile

The last two are very nice landscapes!

Some Very lo-fi images from an Agfa Clack!
This little snapper is pretty much the 6x9 equivalent of a holga.
At close range it's pretty functional as the restaurant shot shows.
Pulling away it pretty much falls apart at the edges and then everywhere.
Could be used to good effect. I'll shoot some color film next.

A new film here (for me at least).
Rollei Retro 80s souped in Rodinal 1:25 7min at 20c normal agitation.
These taken with Fuji GW690iii.

Lovely stuff there from the Agfa Clack !

Interesting behavior. Its surprisingly good at 10' or so it seems - is that correct ?

The Medalist is a camera to get, for certain. I can appreciate how the film flatness qualities of that thing put it in another category. They are not at all cheap these days, for good reason it seems.

I have been struggling with the flatness issues with the Speed Graphic roll holders. It makes problems with correctly adjusting the rangefinders as well as corner sharpness. I am beginning to understand why 2x3 cut film was so popular.

These are amazing Andy! Perfect!

Attila thank you so much!

Yes Luis, 10'-15' seems to be the extent of the sweet spot with the clack.
It's an odd camera but kind of fun to use.
The Clack is fun but has nothing on the Fuji GW690iii.
The negatives coming from this fuji are just fantastic.

I feel like I'm over posting in this thread Embarassed

It is my last week in Lyons. I've shot around 50 120 rolls here in the last few months.
The scans so far are only "contact sheet" quality. I'll be wet printing the best of them for a showing here later in the year hopefully.
Nothing special just towny life. My Flikr has a bunch of it in the "LyonsCO 80540" set.
This week I'm busy getting permissions from all the folks whose Portraits I have taken. Probably better than half of the material is not on Flikr yet.

Andy, I'm liking those Retro 80s results a whole bunch! S'more boxies
from one of the Tengors:

Bill, damn you with the Tengors, you sure get more out of those cameras than most people do.
Larry, that looks like it fell out of a 1970s National Geographic! Excellent flavor to the photo.



Here's a sample or two with the Ansco Shur-shot box camera:
