Rollei’s Back!… But I Havent Had A Chance To Shoot Yet :(

So I picked up repaired Rollei on Wednesday afternoon and I have to say that the repair guy did a really good job. As well as fixing the shutter he also gave it a really good clean and fixed up a few other small issues as well as re timing and checking all the shutter speeds.

The unfortunate thing is that since I have picked it up I haven’t been able to get out and shoot and with working both days this weekend the likelihood of getting a full roll through for next week is looking pretty poor.

So that being said here goes a shot from pre-repair Rollei of some timelapsing with my D90 🙂

So there is a bit of a winter storm happening over New Zealand at the moment so when the first snow flurries started to hit I decided it would be a good time to head to the south coast and get some images as the storm rolled up from the south island.

Its school holidays which meant that Amanda was home to look after the kids as I put on as many clothes as I could find and headed out.

The great thing about owning an aging digital SLR is that you don’t mind so much if it gets a bit wet so even though the spray off the waves was pretty bad I still got some shots. I also took my F5 which was pre loaded with some expired Ilford Pan F+ 50 ISO film so it will be interesting to see how they come out since I was getting up to about a 10 second exposure, hopefully I will develop that roll in the next day or two.
