Pentax MZ-30 sample images

I bought a Pentax MZ-30 a while ago to build up my vintage camera collection and to try to obtain a copy of each of the MZ series. Although I’ve subsequently found the series to be quite unreliable and not really suitable for regular use, I did put a roll of Agfa Vista Plus 200 through my copy so I’ve created this post to show the Pentax MZ-30 sample images.

These pictures were mostly taken with the Pentax FA 35-80 zoom lens would have been supplied with the camera when new, but a couple were taken with a modern DA 18-55mm lens which was designed to work on an APS-C crop sensor DSLR just to see how cropped the image circle is. They actually turned out not too bad, and the lens could easily be used from about 21mm on a full frame 35mm camera.

These pictures were developed and scanned by Photo Express in Hull and saved to CD as TIFF files. After import to Lightroom, the files went through my film processing workflow.

I’m a software developer by profession but I’ve been taking pictures since I was about 8 years old. In that time I’ve owned cameras of all types and sizes from 120 roll film thro’ 35mm to my current Pentax K-5, Ricoh GXR + P10/S10/A12 28mm/A12 50mm, Canon S95 and recently acquired Sony NEX 6.

    Can You tell me how do you scan your negatives? Do you use your own scanner?
