I've been shooting Fp4 and rating it at 64. I think it's slowly becoming my favorite film now. I'm definitely starting to like it more than Delta 100. I'll give it a try rating it at 64 in 35mm and see how I like it.

Some from my latest roll of Gold 200 - one left to come, then I've moved onto Portra 400. I wasn't as happy with what I photographed on this roll of Gold, but that's not on the emulsion, I don't think. Some old Coca Cola branded stuff around the city.

They have entire Coca-Cola stores in Mexico! Apparently Mexico is their biggest market - who knew? I haven't had that stuff in probably 10 years, lol. Nice shots!

The Torre Latinoamericana (English: Latin-American Tower) is a skyscraper in downtown Mexico City, situated in the historic city center. Its central location, height (166 m (545 ft)), and history make it one of the city's most important landmarks.[2] It is widely recognized internationally as an engineering and architectural landmark since it was the world's first major skyscraper successfully built on highly active seismic zone. The skyscraper notably withstood the 8.1 magnitude 1985 Mexico City earthquake without damage,[4] whereas several other structures in the downtown area were damaged.

I've actually never drunk Coke without ... well, Rum. And I haven't drunk Rum in years, nor do I plan on breaking that streak, either.

Thanks for posting the history of the building to go along with the picture.

I think I could live in Mexico City at least for a year. I've gone there a few times now and I love it.

Are you reducing development time (pull) or processing normally?

I'm reducing the developing time as well. I'm using the developing time Massive Dev Chart has for rating it at 64 using xtol.

I've been scanning a lot of old family negatives and photos and even the few 4 x 5 sheet film negatives from the Speed Graphic I used to own recently and have been somewhat bitten by the film bug again. I have a mini speed graphic with a 120 roll film back that I've never used to take photos with and I'm tempted to get the basic items needed to develop black and white negatives at home and scan them. I had my own home darkroom including an enlarger back in the '70s and did both b&w and color film.

One reason why I haven't used the mini before is that it doesn't have a ground-glass back for critical focus and I don't know how accurate the range finder or rail is. I would need to shoot several images to test the focus systems on the camera to be sure they work properly.

Here's a family photo taken in the '30s I believe that I really like and would love to emulate. The tonal range, the wide field of view and shallow depth of focus all combine to make this one a bit special in my opinion. I have no idea what camera was used to take this photo, unfortunately.

I scanned the negative with my Epson V600 and added the border in PS.

Photos like that are why I'm obsessed with photography. A camera is like having a time machine, though most people don't understand what I mean when I say that. But one day they will. :-)

Does anyone have a suggestion as to what camera might have been used for this image? I'm sure it was a consumer camera for snapshots rather than a more professional one. I'm intrigued by the wide aspect of the negative.

I just checked. Using my Surface Pro as a lightbox, here's the measurements I got. I just put the ruler there for scale. I measured the negative by hand.

Did a quick search based on your measurements and the closest I could find was it could possibly be one of two. A Graflex Speed Graphic, or perhaps a Kodak No.3 Folding Brownie Camera (Model D). Although these apparently shot a 4.25x3.25" negative. http://www.mrmartinweb​.com/medium.html (external link) The only issue is that the Graflex didn't come out until '47.

I deleted my original post after seeing that you scanned it on a v600, as I didn't think any of the speed graphic cameras had negatives small enough to scan on the v600, but the image does look like the images I came across a while back that were shot with a Speed Graphic. They had a wide angle and shallow dof.
