Test of my 'new' Helios 44 and to see if my focus was right after replacing the screen on my fujica st701. Wide open (f2). Just dust removal and playing with channel mixing. Canoscan 700f. Delta 100 film.

This is some very good b&w, great mix of tonality. i'm not a big fan of the delta 100, but it gives superb results

ok now for the funny part : it makes me thinked of the apple in a witch hand.. from snow white tale Laughing

Nice one. Close-ups of hands doing something are very expressive and the mono treatment really works.
Does anybody else find the forum software is increasing contrast and losing resolution when a pic is uploaded?

I'm not sure about the contrast, but yes I noticed now and then a loss of detail - like if the image was resampled.

Good one. This is the kind of picture I like, more concentrated on detail than on the whole. Could you please give information about development, if done at home?
Marty.

It was the lab at school. Sprint chemistry (which I haven't tried at home). Development times are comparable to D-76 1:1.
