Decided to see what the Heliar 15 could do with the teahouse on Monte
Sano, using Walgreens Studio 35 400 film:

Thanks for your comments, Koji-san, I'm just practicing using this camera.
Think I need to order some ISO 400 slide film.

Thanks, Attila, I find this the best set yet of the teahouse, too bad I didn't
use slide film. Sad The cam is a joy to use! I had the ISO set at 320 for the
cheap 400 film and had to turn down (not a lot) the exposure in PP.

@Koji: I just wanted to let you know that this gaijin did take his boots off
before stepping onto the floor of the teahouse. There were two hikers that
passed by that thought that was hilarious, still, old habits die hard. Wink

I've heard that Fuji makes this film for Walgreens, not bad results for being
cheap. My next thing is getting some 400 slide film. Thanks for your comment.

Hard to pick between them Bill but I think #4 is the one for me.

I love the last photo, Bill. Great shadow play.

Thanks, Bob and Orio, the last is clearly my fave as well. I've had that
particular shot in mind for some time, but never had a wide enough lens
to capture all three components: the lines of the roof, the circle, the circle's
shadow, until now. The two interior shots were at 1/8sec, and all shots were
handheld. Yes, I love this cam!

Nice work Bill. The shadows in the last one are really neat.

You know, for cheap film it is pretty darn good.

Ron, it is just rebadged Fuji, comes in the same Fuji container, too. I just
won on ebay 37 rolls of film, mostly Kodak, for 90 cents a roll (with shipping)
that still has good expiration date (thanks, Attila!)

37 rolls. Knowing you, that should hold you for about 4 weeks. Then what?

Your very welcome!

Dave had good experience with freezer I suggest to put there and take out necessary quantity 2-3 days before shoot.
