I very recently started developing color film at home. Tried it once to prove to myself I could do it.
Now onto round 4.
For film I went with a favorite. Lomography 400. But this time in 120 film strength.
Negatives came out as great as ever using Cinestill CS41.
For the image capturing I used what I must admit is my favorite medium format camera.
Now please notice I said favorite and not best. For me that would be some manner of Hasselblad V camera cost no limit and something like the Yashicam MAT LM on the budget friendly side. Best in that they both embody the full film medium format experience as I see it. 6×6 and fully manual. Other formats are also great, but when I think 120 film the square 6×6 format comes to mind and a Hasselblad or TLR silhouette comes to mind…
But when I want to shoot 120 film in the real world the Pentax 645N is right up my alley. An updated post on this camera will likely come soon that will discuss the why at length, but the short version is stated in the title of my previous post. A practical impractical camera.
Photos were taken on a quick walk around a local “downtown” area specifically to test the camera and lens. Very therapeutic as well. True to form for the Pentax 645N every single exposure was a success. Properly metered and focused. I will also note that Pentax 645N cameras capture 16 645 images per roll rather than the usual 15. Here are all 16 shots.
