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

Hiking the Lerautal with a Canon A‑1 and a FD 1.4/50mm S.S.C. — Part II

As prom­ised in the first part of this Can­on A‑1 attempt, I have fin­ished the first roll of film — it’s again an Agfa Vista 200 — and it’s back from the lab, so it’s time to show some images. A couple of images were made dur­ing a hike in the Lerautal — a val­ley…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Hik­ing the Lerautal with a Can­on A‑1 and a FD 1.4/50mm S.S.C. — Part II

Hiking around Flossenbürg with a Contax 139 Quartz

After dress­ing this beauty in new clothes, I was keen to see a first film in this 40 years old cam­era. So I moun­ted a Carl Zeiss Planar 1.7/50mm, loaded an Agfa Vista 200 and … enjoyed a photo walk;) OK, this is not the 1.7/50mm lens attached ;) … this is the right one…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Hik­ing around Flossen­bürg with a Con­tax 139 Quartz

Contax Aria and Yashica ML 2.8/24mm

A first film found its way into my Con­tax Aria — an Agfa Vista 400. As lens I used a Yash­ica ML 2.8/24mm. The Con­tax Aria is a beau­ti­ful piece of tech­no­logy and one of the last SLR mod­els from Con­tax. Tech­nic­al specs can be found here, so there’s no need to duplic­ate them. And…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Con­tax Aria and Yash­ica ML 2.8/24mm

Hiking around Flossenbürg and Gaisweiher

The last day of the year A.D. 2017 we made a short trip to the Burg Flossen­bürg. The small town is know for one of the KZ (Con­cen­tra­tion Camp) dur­ing the darkest era in Ger­man his­tory — the Nazi Era. This time how­ever, we did not vis­it the KZ, but hiked down to the small…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Hik­ing around Flossen­bürg and Gaisweiher

Canon A‑1 with FD 1.4/50mm S.S.C.

On we go with a Can­on A‑1, a Can­on FD 1.4/50mm S.S.C. lens attached and an Agfa Vista 200 loaded. The next days hope­fully will bring a little bit sun­shine as it would make so much more fun. My first impres­sion while play­ing around with the A‑1 … sol­id … very sol­id. Some­how it reminds…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Can­on A‑1 with FD 1.4/50mm S.S.C.
