A Contax 167MT and a Carl Zeiss Distagon 2.8/28mm in Porto

This time in Porto … some­thing went ter­ribly wrong. Get­ting back my films from the lab, they wrote that some images were under­ex­posed. See­ing the res­ults, around 1/3rd of the frames were near black and I’m still guess­ing what happened. The Con­tax 167MT with its Carl Zeiss Dis­tagon 2.8/28mm worked quite well with the Kodak…… Con­tin­ue read­ing A Con­tax 167MT and a Carl Zeiss Dis­tagon 2.8/28mm in Porto

A Nikon F‑301 travelling Ireland

Over­ture Mid 2017 we made a two week trip through Ire­land. Motiv­ated by Jim Grey from Down the Road who made sev­er­al won­der­ful posts about his jour­ney in 2016, I tried to get hands on an old ana­log Nikon F‑301 cam­era with a 35mm lens attached. I packed five rolls of Agfa Vista 400 to…… Con­tin­ue read­ing A Nikon F‑301 trav­el­ling Ireland

Olympus OM-2n and H.Zuiko Auto‑W 2.8/24mm on Crete

As told in one of my pre­vi­ous posts, I was on a trip to Crete and this time an old Olym­pus OM-2n came with me. I decided to pick my Olym­pus H.Zuiko Auto‑W 2.8/24mm lens and loaded an Agfa Vista 200 film.

Hiking the Haselstein and the Center of Central Europe

On this hike I car­ried with me three cam­er­as — maybe I should stay at one per hike only, as weight is always an issue. The film one was a Con­tax G2 with its Carl Zeiss Biogon 2.8/28mm attached. I loaded a Kodak Ultramax 400. After the second image the cam­era stopped work­ing due to…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Hik­ing the Hasel­stein and the Cen­ter of Cent­ral Europe

Prague w/ a Contax 159MM

Spend­ing a day in Decem­ber in Prague, that town fam­ous for its light, its mood and its old archi­tec­ture. This time I choose a Con­tax 159MM to come along with me. As we only had one day, it felt like speed dat­ing with this town. As it was end of the year, it was ugly…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Prague w/ a Con­tax 159MM
