Thread: MF, quite shiok!

  1. #1

    Default MF, quite shiok!

    Tried my first roll of slides on my Seagull TLR, quite shiok man. Didn't have the manual so trial and error with film loading, exposing, etc. Suprisingly, the landscape shots are all pretty sharp, for such a cheapo looking lens. Manual focus wasn't too bad, was at infinity for the landscape shots. Metering a bit troublesome, I used my SLR as a exposure meter. Not spot on though, sometimes slightly over, sometimes slightly under. Not used to waist level viewfinding, also the image is laterally inverted, very hard to do adjustments!

    Otherwise, medium format is quite fun, feels great to see the picture at such a large size. It's time to pop in another roll of Provia 100F and start shooting serious stuffs!

    Here're some meaningless samples, just for trial purposes. Sorry ah, my scanner quite lousy, on slides they look much better.




    This one is a bit over-exposed.

    Tweek, the Seagull was brought back by your significant other from China right? How much did it cost?

    yup. She bought it for slightly less than SGD100. Actually a bit too ex, cos this unit is really old....but still quite capable.

    How come I have a feeling that the dynamic range of the MF film seems less than conventional 35mm film??

    it's the same film, same emulsion, but just different size leh.

    It's my scanner that lacks the colour depth and dynamic range!
