First Roll of 120 Through Rolleiflex

Here goes a few images from the first roll of 120 film I put through the Rolleiflex. These are all straight off the film with no corrections and using the camera meter.

All I can say is WOW…Even with a couple of  good-sized cracks round the edge of the lens this camera is giving a sharp image and the meter is spot on 🙂

You can see the extent of the lens damage in the top corners of this image as a darkening of the sky but all in all not too bad and could be post produced out with a bit of vignette.

A little bit of flare here as well but this was across the sun so was kinda pushing it to see what it would do…

I likee 🙂

Not the best photo but hey it’s not everyday you see a couple of stormtroopers walking down the street.

I almost got them front on but need more practice with focus and reverse panning techniques…

I think this might replace the F5 for a little while as camera of choice for street shooting… Well we’ll see 🙂

Rolleiflex 2.8 E, 80mm Zeiss Planar, Fuji 400H Film

    • Cheers. Nothing like a new format to make you think differently.
