I am going to give 6x6 a serious try. Up until now my 6x6 has been a Brownie modified to use 120 film, which BTW, is easier than it sounds. I just picked up a Mamiya 6 V on E-Bay. Seller says everything is fine and it works well. I love new gadgets! Well, old new gadgets anyway.

I am expecting my new Mamiya 6 IV in a few days. I can't seem to locate a manual for it. I'm not sure I'll need one, but prefer to have it. No preference of printed copy, PDF copy, or original. Anyone have any ideas where to look? Or better yet, a copy laying around? Butkus.com is my usual source: nothing.

I just got results of roll I shot in the spring. Film is Ektar 100. Camera is Brownie Hawkeye. The first photo is nice enough for $5 camera. Note sun at my back over left shoulder. The second one is a mess; sun is over my right shoulder. Third shot is sun over my left shoulder again. Last shot is sun just out of frame to left. Is all of that mess flare? Who would have thought a piece of plate glass over plastic lens could look that bad? It kinda looks like a light leak to me, but it doesn't show up in the first 6 frames, only in the last 6.

Looks like a light leak to me. Is the camera rolling the film tight on the take up spool or are you getting a “fat” roll?

Bencini Comet
I rolled a 135 film into a 127 spool with the original backing paper and put it in the Bencini Comet. I have placed two horizontal flaps in the camera's film frame. The film did not lay flat and the pictures had a small out of focus section.

Hello. Hope I'm in the correct place? I am one of those people who held onto film longer than some, but once I gave it up I never looked back (12 years maybe?). Well, with as crazy as life has been over the last year I need something to calm me down (slow me down). I decided to get back to film a little, the Zen of it. LOL

I already own many old lenses (m39 & m42) that I've been able to mount to my modern cameras, so I really only need the body. I have a Mamiya 35mm from the seventies that I used occasionally (M42). Light meter bad so relied on sunny 16. Just ordered a FED 2 & FED 4 that look in great shape & will allow me to use the M39 lenses. I just looked at film for the first time in a decade, there is some crazy stuff out there!

I've sure I'll have some questions. Please move this if needed. Thank you

Mike

Hey Mike! This is technically a correct place, although this thread is far more active: https://photography-on-the.net …ead.php?t=72208​9&page=247

Welcome back to the film world! A lot of film stocks have been discontinued but there's still some good stuff out there. From a technical standpoint Kodak Portra 400 is probably the best color-negative film ever made. Kodak's T-Max 100 and 400 are crazy high resolution and thankfully we still have Tri-x to shoot. Fujifilm has discontinued a lot of films, but still makes Velvia and Provia as well as two other color negative films and a black and white film. I'm pretty partial to Fujifilm C200; super cheap and great colors.

Thank you. I did a lot of landscapes back in the 80-90s, I enjoyed using Fuji Reala. I was looking at the crazy "Vampire" films & Cinestills type stuff. No desire to play with the stuff that has hearts & lightning bolts LOL. I love B&W & high contrast, kinda "Film Noir"ish. I'm also looking forward to how films such as Portra & Ektar will render on a 60 year old Russian lens & rangefinder. Thanks for the advice, I will move over to the thread you mentioned.

I still have about 30 rolls of Reala in 120. Love the stuff. Rollei RPX25 is a nice high contrast film. Ultra tight grain.

LOL. I still have 3 rolls of Kodak IR (although expired) in the fridge. Wouldn't even begin to guess where to get that developed these days. I will look into the Rollei film, thank you.
