Week 9: Hassy Test

I recently bought one of my dream cameras, a Hasselblad 500 C/M, with a Zeiss Sonnar 150mm/f4 (chrome, I’m guessing it was originally for a 500C) and a Planar 80mm/2.8 T*. I shot a test roll with it using Fuji Acros 100, developed in Rodinal 1+100, semi-stand (gentle inversions at start, 20 and 40 mins, total 1 hr).

My next roll will break with my medium format focus, I shot a St Patrick’s Day parade with some Velvia 50 with my Canon EOS 3. I should get the chems this week to develop my first roll of E-6 (have done prob 20-30 C-41 rolls).

    • Thanks, yes I shoot too many trees with B&W. Can’t help myself. The church I didn’t have the Planar yet, would have liked to get the steeple in the shot, but with the 150 would have needed to chop down a lot trees.

    • It’s like an infection! Much more portable than the Mamiya, though I like the Mamiya for studio stuff (on a tripod). I had planned to restrict myself to B&W, but I might need to do a few rolls with Velvia to see how that looks through these lens. My scans could be better, they are much sharper than the scans show.
