    My latest homemade camera, the PinBlad Deluxe, was made from a defective Hasselblad 500c. The Ilex #3 shutter with a 0.4mm pinhole is mounted via a Hasselblad V-mount bayonet to the camera body. The body is locked in mirror-up and rear shutter-open mode, and the film holder is cranked manually, using the film window to read the numbers on the 120 film backing paper. I may also try some experimental lenses on this camera, since the Ilex shutter also offers aperture control, and the waist level viewfinder allows focusing, though the mirror needs to be reset manually before shooting . . .

    Cool!! I have a pinhole body cap that I used to use on a Canon DSLR. Still have the cap but no Canon gear anymore...

    Looking forward to images.

    I shot this a while back with Fuji Pro400H in a 6x7 roll-film holder on my Mercury Works 3D printed camera with a Schneider Kreuznach 90mm Angulon lens. This camera is very light and relatively compact, for something that can shoot 6x9 negatives.

    I just picked up a Nikon FM2, and I can already tell that it's a camera I will start to use often. It's particularly cool to have a shutter that goes up to 1/4000 now that I am starting to use really fast films more of the time.

    yeah, at one point I thought I'd go away from 35mm to medium format mostly, but in truth the FM3a has been fun to shoot and to learn on. It's a keeper.

    I can't see shooting only 135mm OR shooting just medium format. They really are completely different animals and I enjoy them both.

    I am waiting on some Sugru to make a more permanent connection between the lens-side bayonet to the shutter; the gaffer tape doesn't hold well enough. I have also come up with Hasselblad V-mount to M65 adapter (almost the only V-mount adapter out there) and an M65 helical as the basis for mounting a proper lens with a shutter on the PinBlad Deluxe.

    The Cat's Funeral
    Portra 400, home scan, Leica M4-2 and 50mm Summicron collapsible. This is sharp as a razor, but very hard to downsize. I either get terrible artifacts in the veiling flare or a soft image. Doesn't matter too much in this case though.

    A couple more....

    One thing: I think my E6 chemistry is exhausted or too old. This roll came out with an overall purplish hue, and no "pop" in the colors. I'll have to order a new kit.

    How many rolls did you develop? And, how many was the kit supposed to be able to do?

    It's the Arista Rapid E6 kit from Film Photography Project. The instructions are very explicit, yet vague, and there's no suggested max number of rolls. It actually seems to say that the 1st Developer is only good for ONE use! But then it goes on to say that if you use it for more than one roll, you need to add a percentage of time to each step. I've added about :10 seconds per roll, and have developed 8 rolls, so the original 6.5 min @100ºF has increased to 8 min at this point.

    Someone on another film forum said he gets well over 20 rolls from the same E6 kit, but generally develops all the rolls within 2-3 weeks of mixing the solutions. My solutions are about 12 weeks old now, so I have a feeling they are just out of date.

    8 rolls isn't bad. That's nearly 300 images after all, if you're shooting rolls of 36. I guess it could make sense to shoot a dozen rolls or so and then order the chemicals to develop them all at once.

    Of course, but that defeats the WHOLE purpose of home-developing for ME. haha! I am actually excited when I get home with film now, rather than "dreading" the multiple trips to the lab...

    I'll gladly take 8 rolls for $30 cost. That's 6 free rolls compared to the lab costs + subways. And I get "1 hour service"!! :)

    $30 is a great price for 8 rolls. Where I live the shipping boosts that to $50 though. That's still a good price, but starting to be closer to what mail-away costs.

    becoming rapidly apparent that Tri-X/HP5 are quite different films depending on the format. Don't like them so much in 35mm. Just a tad bit too much grain for me. But they've been excellent in 120

    As Björk said, you’d be daft not to try both when there are so many different flavors.
