Pics from my new Rolleiflex

These are from the 3rd roll I shot. Why the 3rd and not the first 2? Because the first 2 are slide film which only comes back tomorrow...

Shot on XP2, scanned on Epson 4990 with Vuescan.

Really like the way you were able to render the metal, Nick!

Lucky fellow. I've seen your work before and you have a great eye for still-life. I think Werner Bischof is such an inspiration for what that camera can do.

WernerBischofPictures is a great book if you can find it.

You just can't beat square inches (in a larger negative) for technical quality.

Thanks for the compliments!

Forgot to mention, it's an early Planar 2.8F, serial number in the 240xxxx series.

I much prefer them to those rectangular ones!

Nick, the pictures are wonderful. Old (but very good) equipment, an "ordinary" subject, and a fascinating result.

Great stuff! Wish my first roll looked that good...

Enjoy the Rollei; I know I'm loving mine.

Very nice.

My first camera was a fixed lens 35mm and it drove me crazy. As I get older, I use my 50 more and more so go figure.

Rollie glass has the heritage that makes them special.

Not a criticism ... but XP2 in MF gives a look that is almost digital in it's incredible detail.

Nice shots ... must start using my Rollei!

Will also be trying out new Tmax400 and Rollei Retro400 (repackaged APX400, I believe) for this series.

Nice stuff. That architectural one is quite an optical illusion.

I can only imagine how these would look in print...
