Those are stunning Attila. Aren't you glad digital processing is available to correct film?

Yes, most of the pre-war lens are "crappy" compare with current ones. Some of them are amazing like this one. I am really fallen in love with Voigtlanders.

I hate to say it Attila but there's still a lot of magenta in the pictures.

As I told you I also have that camera and I also can't manage to get color balanced pictures from Velvia. Provia (especially 400F) was better though, but far from perfect.

I should use an UV filter as someone said, but I think I'll use both Bessa and Ikonta for B&W (or negative color film) and use Pentacon Six for slides.

Easiest solution Very Happy

I don't care Wink I like this result very much.

I don't think that magenta cast of Velvia can change depending on which camera. I shot Velvia with many cameras and I always got magenta cast.
I think that more or less cast depends on both light condition and chemical development.

Impressive!

I recognize the camera. My father had something similar, at least a Voigtlnder with bellow.
Might be worth looking for next time I visit.

Orio you have it right.
The only chance is to use corrective filters when shooting.
Film that is balance for a certain light temperature is going to have odd hues shot under different light temperatures.
The camera, lens, fingers crossed ......whatever will not change it.
Only a filter can help and not always in full.

Still I don't have magenta cast with CZJ MC lenses for Pentacon Six.

And the developing lab was the same so should be the chemical bath.

Perhaps MC lens is key, who knows.

I surmise that the statements indicate that Velvia will show magenta cast, no matter which camera or scene?

I am not sure that is the case - I will try to find my old slides with AE-1 and Canon FD lenses with Velvia 50 under varying conditions.

I don't remember magenta casts in any of those slides, but I certainly will be the first to admit that my memory is being left behind... Laughing

You can see again the shots I made in the woods last week with Velvia and P6, no magenta cast anywhere. I didn't correct them a bit in Silverfast or Photoshop.

Hi Attila --- I like these pictures a lot !!!

@ Orio -- I am getting worried that you have the true --
unfortunately shadows on Velvia can be seen as STRONG MAGENTA and there is nothing how to remove this issue --
doesn't depend on camera -- I found this on my Hassy, but results very similar to Attila's..

@Alessandro -- please, have you got any examples with your Pentacon6? It would so kind of you to see them Smile many thanks...

@ Attila --- I was just trying to adjust these pics Smile all rights reserved by ATTILA, of course Smile!
The colours may vary on different monitors.. Smile I hope I haven't done anything wrong .. Smile















cheers

Nice work Trifox on correcting those, still the #7 need a bit more correction and #4 and #6 just a tiny bit.

These are my latest shots with Velvia 50 http://forum.mflenses.com/medium-format-autumn-t12057.html and sincerely I don't see the same magenta cast.

I experienced it though with Bessa and Velvia 100F a lot similar to Attila.

Hi Alessandro --- yep, the no.7 hard to adjust quickly -- needs a local adjustment with a masking --- I can do it, 4 and 6 as well..

The first advantage of Magenta is that it makes a contrast on picture especially with blue tones --- it can't be just simply removed -- otherwise the contrast can be lost ..

VELVIA 50 Seems to be better for landscapes --- because of her lower sensivity so replacement magenta tone is not requiered anymore...

coming back soon

Cheers Atilla , if you want I can adjust your pics in full -- it was just a quick adjustmet Smile

the finding is propably this:
for pictures like landscapes -- Velvia 50 is better (see Alessandro's examples) or Provia 100 or filter --- I'll try to scan my Provia pics...we shall see..

Velvia 100 has some magenta in emulsion because of higher ISO to make a picture more contrasty -- this is only my guess Smile not exact !!! Smile
