  1. That's also a really stunning shot! Thanks for the advice, super useful. I bought a Reciprocity app which gives recommended timings for just about every film type, so hopefully that should help too. I was going to do exactly what you've suggested actually and bring along my A7SII to take care of exposure readings, but the Mamiya 645 is pretty chunky as is, so I've just picked up a Minolta Auto Finder IV light meter with the viewfinder II 10 degree attachment which coverts it into a spot meter, all for around £45! Still a bit of a faff but definitely lighter than carrying around a DSL with a lens and gives me the added benefit of also having a nice, vintage light meter for skin tones etc.
  2. Oh that is lovely! Very useful to know, thanks Ste. What app are you using? I'll give it a go!
  3. A question to all film and medium format shooters: Apologies if that has been answered a million times, but I want to start getting into long exposure photography using my Mamiya 645 Pro TL. I have a shutter release cable and a few decent tripods, I'm just short of a light meter, which in truth I probably should've bought a while back. Since it's mostly going to be used for taking shots of the city and landscapes, any recommendations for an an affordable meter? Cheers! EDIT - And while I'm here... the little plastic thing has somehow come off my shutter speed dial on my Mamiya. Anyone know what kind of glue I'd be safe to use to put it back on? Looks like I need plastic to metal. Tiny amount should do it. Just to make it clear what I'm talking about. It's the bit that goes in the middle of the dial. Without: With:
  4. A few recent pics on a Mamiya 645 and using Fuji Colour Pro 400 film.
  5. Great match. Fair play to Djokovic. I think Federer deserved that, but it's about winning the points when it matters.
  6. Ugh, I can't stand tiebreaks. Does Federer have a losing record in them? Feels like it!
  7. I love Djokovic, but he doesn't deserve to be winning this. Federer has been incredible.
  8. Federer's level has dropped massively. Not capitalising on those break points seems to have really affected him.
  9. Nope, my freezer is frost central so that could be the issue. Might be time to clean it out! I love the look of CineStill so I'm hopping the spots are a one time deal!
  10. Well I took two rolls out with me and used both, but didn't open the second roll of Cinestill for a few hours after we began filming (Around three hours after taking it out of the freezer), so I'm not entirely sure if that would be enough time, but definitely a possibility! Thanks man!
  11. Film people of Rllmuk, I have a question. Has anyone used CineStill 800T? I've just had two rolls developed and every photograph is covered in little blue circles. I've had to manually remove each spot but in some cases it's not been possible and it has ruined the image. I've got two rolls left, currently in my freezer. Any idea what this could be? I was incredibly careful with the film. You can see it here in on his face. The company I use have been really good so far so I don't think they've made a mistake as my fujifilm 400 came back at the same time without issues. Has anyone encountered this before? Cheers!
  12. 4am start to get a couple of sunrise shots of Stonehenge. I got very lucky with the light! Back on the Sony A7SII for these with some old Minolta 58mm and 24mm manual lenses for company. Then a bit of a clumsy effort taking a picture of a speeding car as it raced by.
  13. Bit surprised by the comments in here. I've seen a lot of Ruiz's fights and he's a very effective and competent boxer, definitely not a bum. His only loss was a debatable decision that went to the then unbeaten Joseph Parker. Of course the result was still shocking, but I don't think it's fair to call Ruiz a a bum or to suddenly question AJ's credentials. AJ looked awful last night and right from his ring walk, he looked stiff and tentative. It was by far the worst performance I've seen from him and his fundamentals just weren't there from the opening round. It also looked to me like he got a concussion when he went down in the third and never really recovered. But that happens in the heavyweight division and although he looked poor, credit must also be given to Ruiz for taking it to AJ in the manner that he did. Styles make fights and all that Jazz so a loss to Ruiz doesn't really mean that much in the big scheme of things and certainly doesn't diminish his CV in any way. He actually has made improvements since his fight with Kiltchko. If you look at his performance against Parker, its was a very controlled and smart display of boxing, it just wasn't massively entertaining since he wasn't pushing for a KO. The adjustments he made against Povetkin (An extremely good fighter) were clear to see and he had been inching closer to the KO combo every time Povetkin came forward. After getting blasted initially, he figured out his rhythm and distance very well to get the win. It was smart boxing. Fury is clearly the best heavyweight on the planet and Wilder, despite being an awful boxer, will always have that power as an equaliser. But Joshua is still right up there with them on a good night.
  14. A few more from another roll of film that just came through. By the way, West End Cameras did a really nice job of the scans. WAY better than Mr Cad who I've not been too impressed with lately. All taken on a Mamiya 645 Pro and expired Kodak T Max 100 film.
  15. A few recent shots using expired Kodak T-Max 100. I'm using a new lens here (Slightly faster version of an 80mm that I was using previously) and struggling to get the best out of it, but I'm relatively happy with a couple of these.
