Re: Harley

Yeah, Ektar 35mm (135), shot at box speed, 100 iso.
The dynamic range and exposure latitude astound me. The result looks a little like digital HDR, but this was a single frame. The way it handles highlights and shadows spells film to me.

That is doubly impressive. I know it is difficult to tell from images on screen bit I was expecting you to say that it was from a medium format negative.

I have been trying some Ektar 100 in my own medium format cameras recently so I am expecting great things. I usually use Velvia or Provia but I have been enjoying the freedom of colour negative film and the ability to use waist level finders without worrying about getting the exposure right to within a quarter of a stop!

Re: Harley

By the way the lens, a 135mm f/3.5, was purchased from Ffordes for 59. Described as Ex++ it was like new when it arrived, really pleased with it.

With film photography there are only two components worth talking about, the film obviously and the lens. The camera is merely a facilitator.

This is true, although good exposure helps.

As for analogue cameras and lenses there are some amazing bargains out there. I have been able to buy brand new, boxed lenses from Ffordes for my Mamiya 645 for very reasonable prices, and a fraction of what they would have cost. This includes a couple of leaf shutter lenses, a 35 mm lens and several accessories.

My RZ Pro II and lenses came from Japan, and were also very well priced even when import duties are included. In all cases condition was like new.
