Well! It's been some months since I received this gift from spiralcity and I really have so much to thank him! I didn't have pretty much time to test it around but here I upload some samples. Maybe not great photos but I really like'em. Maybe it's weird, but I've never shot with a SLR before, I'm a "digital era born" guy. The experience IS FANTASTIC! It's such a magic process, shooting rolls, waiting days to see results. In my opinion, I think that the difference between manual SLR and digital is soooooooooooooo big. It's like another type of photography. I'm really gratefull with the world that you just opened to my eyes spiralcity Very Happy (I think my bank will be grateful too in some months, but who cares! (me!)).

Here are some samples I want to share: scanned with 5D & Micro-Nikkor-P, straight from the negative. It's my first time so results are not really ok. Sorry Smile.






Thanks for stopping by!

Hey Cilinderman, the experiment paid off, fantastic!
Especially #1 and 4 are my favourites.

Thank you for sharing. Smile

Yeah, I like the suspense, the waiting time, for me it's the best.
Sometimes I catch myself, trying to check the histogram at the back of the SLR. Smile

It is a fun cam to use Wink

I assume you used your Zeiss screwmount lenses? Shooting with a Fujinon lens is even better since it's open-aperture metering Smile

Most of them were shot with Flektogon 35/2.4 and Pentacon 135/2.8.

I sure will! I'm just waiting for exams to be over. I grabbed a Yashica Mat 124G so this really looks like it'll be an exciting summer Wink.

I enjoy so much shooting in BW!
