Kodak colours from my child hood…initial test of some bulk roll VPS 160

Film, Photography Discussion

I was lucky enough to jag this bulk roll of Kodak Vericolor III type S for a song on the Bay the other week. It was that cheap that I thought it was worth a punt on seeing how it would go. The tin was still sealed within it’s original packaging box, which was a good sign for me, but it’s date of expiry was illegible, so who knows how old it was or how it was stored.

So on sunday I rolled up a couple of quick little test rolls and went out and took a few random snap shots through out the day.  I rated it at box in my Minolta a7 and gave it a stop of exposure compensation, and I shot it at iso 80 through my Ricoh TLS Singlex, more because it does have exposure compensation. haha. Though I felt these shots came out slightly denser, I think 80 is now the films true speed.

My first play with my dream camera, the Sony A7r!

Cameras, Digital, Gear, Lenses, Photo walk abouts, Photography Discussion

Ever since I first got into the Sony Nex system cameras early in their inception with the Nex5, I knew there was something special about these little cameras and their 18mm e mount. Packing the power of an apsc dslr sized sensor into a tiny package that can easily be thrown in your girlfriends handbag, it was pretty easy for me to fall in love with it. The only thing that held it back was the lack of lenses. We originally started out with the 16mm 2.8 prime and the 18-55mm kit zoom. The zoom is satisfactory but the surprise of the two was the great little 16mm f2.8 prime lens, which is a great little wide angle.

Wanting something more but disappointed with the lens selection available I turned to third party manufactures after Sony made the prophetic decision to make the e mount spec freely available for third party manufacturers to produce for.
