Re: Couple of shots on Velvia 50

I have a film holder from betterscanning.com (http://www.betterscanning.com/scanning/vb_mfholder.html) - it was actually for the V500 but works perfectly well with the 4990. I use the Epson holder...

Re: Couple of shots on Velvia 50

Indeed - I don't have one, so far I haven't had a problem with just taking the prism off and composing on the screen.

Re: Couple of shots on Velvia 50

Thanks Nigel. You can get a waist level finder for the H1 as well. :)

I use an Epson 4990 that I bought for 50 and use the bog standard Epson Scan software. The 4990 was the predecessor of the...

Re: Hasselblad H1

Thanks Keith.



Thanks Simon. Would love to visit Japan. Maybe one day...

The H3DII is probably a much better digital camera than the previous H cameras, including the H3D (one integrated...

Re: Hasselblad H1

Ah OK, it's more than 4 times the size then. It's double the size of 35mm full frame.

And thanks!

Hasselblad H1

Blimey, my third post in a week. What's got into me...? :)

Anyway, if anyone is curious about the Hasselblad H1 that I mentioned in my last post about shooting on Velvia...

Re: Couple of shots on Velvia 50

I also have a CPE2. Jobos are quite popular now so if it's in good condition, and if you're prepared to post it, you would probably get between 250 and 500.

I also have an LPL enlarger, but...

Re: Couple of shots on Velvia 50

No indeed, I love it. And no, not so good for portraits - but for me that's what B&W film is for anyway.

Re: Couple of shots on Velvia 50

Thanks - and yes I do process E6 myself. Been doing it for about 5 years now. I have a Jobo processor which helps, although I have done it in the kitchen sink before.



Thanks!



I blame...

Re: Couple of shots on Velvia 50

Indeed there are - a dozen I think, variants of the 500EL/M (motordriven bodies). The H1 is certainly not as pretty as a V System Hasselblad, but I find it more practical to use.

Here are three...

Couple of shots on Velvia 50

Although I love my Olympus SLRs, my most used camera by a long way is a Hasselblad H1 which I acquired last April. I do have a digital back for the H1 (a Phase One P25) but I mostly use it with film,...

Re: New Year's Day Swim, Barry Island

Oh dear, sorry to hear about the central heating - not what you want in the middle of January. Hope it gets sorted soon.

The air temperature on New Year's Day was actually very mild, but the water...

New Year's Day Swim, Barry Island

The New Year's Day Swim is held every year on Barry Island. I haven't ventured on to the beach to photograph the craziness before but decided to give it a go this year with my Olympus OM-4ti and some...

Re: Anyone using a Holga?

Thanks, and yes, absolutely on the imperfection!

The first one was Fuji Pro 400H - no filter, that's just the way it came out shooting into the sun.

The second was Lomography Color Negative...

Love my Holga 120N. Don't use it as much as I should.

Re: Pinhole digital photography

I'd love to try salt printing - and platinum/palladian. But I'd need to get a 10x8 camera. I have three 5x4 cameras but while 5x4 might be a good place to start I'd pretty soon want to do bigger. And...

Re: Pinhole digital photography

Digital pinhole always seems a bit pointless to me. And even more so fake pinhole effects. You can't beat a 'proper' pinhole photo. :)

Re: In praise of WEX

Hi Simon, yes it is a fantastic camera. I sort of bought it by accident in that I saw one on Ebay with a P25 back with one low bid with an hour to go. Made a bid that I thought was bound to be beaten...
