Here is another camera I have taken pictures with, and which I am considering as a 120mm folder for our road trip. The Voigtlander Perkeo II and the Color Skopar lens are a great combo. I used Kodak Portra 400 in it, and really did not appreciate what the camera and lens and film can produce together. These were taken last year in August, and produced some of my favorite images.
What are your thoughts about this camera for a road trip?
These leaves are soft and fuzzy, a spot of green in a patch of dried grasses. I rather liked the pattern these leaves made in the field.
While this is a pretty bleak looking landscape, it also shows you how the heat of summer dries the winter grasses. One match, and whoosh! Too many fires already in California.
Taken with the Canonet GIII QL rangefinder with Kodak Portra 400. Developed by a local lab (which is friendly and does nice work) as well as scanned, this is my own scan from the Pakon F135 scanner. I also did some post in LR and DxO to reduce the noise. Because of the detail, I probably used f5.6 or so, and not enough time – the original was darkish – so the film was quite grainy.
This brings up the question – why do film when you are going to manipulate it in the computer anyway?
