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…
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
Wow–really really nice.

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