Well the first test "can I get images?" passed. As for how good are the images has yet to be seen till I can make a contact print. I can tell I have scratches so I'll have to be super gentle. Xray film has emulsion on both sides so the chance of scratches is very high. Developed in PolyMax T paper developer, more testing to be done.
Took the mini speed graphic out yesterday to try out the 150mm mamiya 645 lens. Shot some paper negatives while I wait for some film to come in. The image circle isn't large enough to cover the whole frame, especially closer to infinity focus since the lens is closer. Wide open the DOF is razor thin but gives a nice swirl in the out of focus parts. I'd say it's good portrait lens but that's about it.
A few prints from a Ilford pan F roll I shot. I never liked how it scanned and thought the film was not for me but now looking at an actual darkroom print from it, wow. The to tones and clarity are amazing. Just goes to show how much is lost in a scan.
Spinning at the boardwalk. I traded a friend a roll of lomo 400 for a roll of Ilford Delta 3200 since I wanted to shoot later into the night. I want to revisit with a monopod with feet and some shoot some color. Far too many people for a tripod.
