Since I seem to be shooting both black and white and colour a lot now, I'm renaming these posts to simply Photo Vol. X. Seems more fitting and flexible. The Rolleiflex has been great, though I need to put it to more use with some Kodak Portra colour film and make some new portraits with it. The Leica M7 is still down in Melbourne at the servicing shop, though I have some recent 35mm Portra 160 photographs from a camping trip I went on with my mate Dash before I sent it away.
We managed to get the Pakon F135+ to scan raw TIFFs of colour film and the results are quite astounding, even despite the limited resolution of the scanner (6 megapixels). The latitude in colour film is amazing.
Started this on the Nikon, rewound it. The M7 likes to start a bit early.
Old broken stuff on film, right?
