Southsea, Fuji Pro 800Z

One of our last days in England – lovely weather and a little trip to Southsea. We had lunch at The Tenth Hole, a little cafe next to the golf course and then walked along the Millennium Path from Southsea through Old Portsmouth to Gunwharf Quays. Great Stuff.

The first roll of a batch of Fuji Pro 800Z I found on taobao. Great find and it expired only in 2012. Not sure how it’s been stored – judging by these frames, not particularly well but I’m sure it will be ok in the right conditions. It’s just figuring out what those conditions might be before I run out of the stuff…

Southsea, Konica Industrial 100 [expired]

One of our last days in England – lovely weather and a little trip to Southsea. We had lunch at The Ninth Hole, a little cafe next to the golf course and then walked along the Millennium Path from Southsea through Old Portsmouth to Gunwharf Quays. Great Stuff.

This is a roll of Konica film that is packaged in a similar way to the still-in-production Fuji Industrial. There are 3 characters on the box that Chu Chu assured me mean “industrial” and they are the same 3 characters on the fuji boxes so I can only assume that Konica used to make a similar film for industry – I think the films were used in dentistry and surveillance equipment, that sort of thing.

Anyway, it expired years ago and as you can see the colours have gone a bit potty. The blue layer especially…

Emsworth, Pentax PC35AF

Our first full day back in England and a little trip to Chichester and a stop in Emsworth on the way home – we got lucky with the weather with the sun coming out in the afternoon.

I dug out my old Pentax PC35AF – one of the cameras I’ve got stored at mum’s house.

I’ve finally added a page containing links to tags for all the different films used on the blog. The link is on the front page of the blog under ‘the film’ menu. Or you can just click here.

Not all the links have been added yet. But they’re coming very soon.

Clanfield Meadow, Ferrania Solaris 100

Some photos taken in Clanfield Meadow which is directly opposite my mum’s house. It’s a really lovely, peaceful spot. I used to wander through here with a camera when I lived at home with mum and dad.

This is the first roll of film I’ve shot with the nikkor 50mm f/1.2 – I’m still learning its ways. This was also the first time I’d shot Ferrania Solaris as well. It hasn’t been made for a few years now and is hard to get hold of. I recently found some online so decided to buy a few rolls.

I quite like it and it seems to have aged fairly well. I figured it’s probably expired by at least 5 or 6 years so shot it between 1 and 2 stops over. It’s hard to say exactly because the meter on my FM2 is broken and I sometimes forget my handheld light meter so I have to guess exposure or use sunny 16. I think it’s lost a bit of latitude as the whites seem noticeably over-exposed. I’m happy to have got the chance to shot some ferrania though.

Chu Chu, Fuji Industrial 100

Some photos from the first roll taken using the nikkor 50mm f/1.2 ais. It’s going to take while to get used to focussing the thing.

These were taken on the promenade in Emsworth, a lovely little town in Hampshire on the South coast of England with a beautiful yacht harbour.
