    Pentax Program A sample pictures

    I’ve had a film in my Pentax Program A 35mm camera since a couple of weeks after I bought it and I’ve been taking occasional pictures with it over the last year or so. Because there was still film remaining in the camera, when we recently spent a week in Derbyshire the Program A was one of the camera that I took with me to complete the film and get it developed. It was only after I’d completed it and...

    Pentax MZ-3 sample photographs

    This post is to show the Pentax MZ-3 sample photographs I took from the first film I ran through my Pentax MZ-3 camera last week. Because I was taking some pictures of bluebells in a close by wood, I used a roll of Agfa Superia 800 ISO film in order to enable me to use handheld shutter speeds in quite a low light situation. Pentax MZ-3 sample photographs I tried both Aperture Priority and Program mode on the MZ-3 while...

    Pentax Z-20 sample photos

    Last night I developed the first film I’d run through my Pentax Z-20 slr and this morning I’ve scanned the resultant negatives so this post is to highlight the Pentax Z-20 sample photos. Pentax Z-20 sample photos My first impression is that the negatives are a little under exposed and flat. As they were scanned, the histogram for each negative was very bunched up in the centre of the display and therefore the entire dynamic range of the picture was...

    Pentax Super Program sample pictures

    It was a couple of months ago I acquired a Pentax Super Program 35mm camera and I’ve just developed my first film from it, so I thought I’d publish a follow up post describing how I found the camera to shoot with and to feature the Pentax Super Program sample pictures. Pentax Super Program Sample Pictures First a few details about the photos. The camera was loaded with a roll of Kodak ColourPlus 200 film which I exposed at box...

    Pentax P30t sample pictures

    This week I wanted to test my colour film development process and I exposed a reel of Kodak ColorPlus 200 in my Pentax P30t to do that. I’ve already posted on the development process – this post is to cover the use of the P30t and to highlight the Pentax P30T sample pictures. Pentax P30T sample pictures. I took most of these pictures when I went to Reading in Berkshire for a day in the office on Tuesday, and it...

    Pentax Z-1P sample pictures

    Last week I received a test film back from development which I’d exposed in my Pentax Z-1P, and tonight I got time to scan them on my Epson v550 photo scanner. This therefore is a post covering the Pentax Z-1P sample pictures. The images suffer from the same basic problems which the negatives I scanned from the Pentax Z-1 suffered – namely poor resolution and very large grain structure, but I put it down to the cheap Agfa Vista+ 200...

    Pentax Z-1 pictures scanned with Epson V550

    A couple of months ago I picked up a Pentax Z-1 35mm slr and I’ve just received the first film I shot with this camera back from the development lab. Because I’ve recently acquired an epson v550 perfection scanner, I didn’t have these negatives scanned during development, but scanned them myself instead. This post therefore is to show the Pentax Z-1 pictures I obtained. Because my initial tests with the epson scanner had been so encouraging, I was really looking...

    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...

    Pentax SFXn sample pictures

    When we recently when on holiday to Gloucestershire I took some film cameras with me as well as my Pentax K-5, and these are some of the pictures I took with one of those cameras – a Pentax SFXn 35mm slr. Because I was using the K-5 as my main camera for the trip it made sense to make sure the film cameras I took were also K mount cameras  so the lenses could be shared. For that reason I...

    Pentax MZ-M pictures developed in Caffenol C-M

    Over the last couple of days I’ve been using my Pentax MZ-M with a fomapan 200 black & white film to get some sample pictures to test the camera. Today I developed those pictures using Caffenol C-M – the pictures are shown below. Pictures developed in Caffenol C-M. Since I last developed film in caffenol, I’ve bought a film strip mount for my slide duplicator, so I was able to be a much better copy of the negatives this time,...

    Pentax MZ-50 sample pictures

    A couple of weeks ago I got a Pentax MZ-50 35mm slr as a new addition to my vintage camera collection and I was so impressed with it that I thought I would try a film in it to see how it performed. So I loaded a roll of Agfa color 200 film which I found in my drawer (which was actually slightly out of date), and took the camera to work one day so I could take some pictures...
