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.

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
