Due to being bedridden with my ongoing spinal issues, I unfortunately have been unable until now to get out to test my lovely FED 2 and Zorki-4. But I felt well enough last week to get up and outside, so I brought them along with me for some (long overdue) shooting. Yesterday I developed the film; my first home developing in 35 years! I had so much fun, and I must say the results pleasantly surprised me; I guess I just wasn't expecting such nice images from cameras made over a half century ago. And wow, that Sunny 16 rule really works!
All were taken a short distance from my home on Fogo Island, off the northeast coast of Newfoundland. I used Ilford Delta 100 Professional, developed in Ilfosol 3, then scanned the negatives with my new Epson V600. The first three images are from the FED 2 with an Industar 26 lens, and the last three from the Zorki-4 with an Industar 61.
I can hardly wait to get back outside with my trusty FSU's!
Really nice images. You clearly have the dev and scan process nicely sorted! Lovely tones and nice clear, crisp images. Excellent stuff.
I, too, am very fond of my FED2. I bought it because I had never used a rangefinder and I couldn't afford a Leica. It has worked flawlessly and I am extremely pleased with it. Now if I can get my anniversary FED1 to work that well, I'll be happy!
