I now have two working Mamiyaflex C2 cameras, this is a test roll through the recent one. Rodinal stand 1:125, started at 17C for one hour with 4 inversions at midway point. I was spelunking over at APUG reading a monobath thread and one poster (unrelated to topic) mentioned pouring out a small amount of developer at end and adding at least 1/16 volume of fixer, which I tried, inverting for a minute to mix well before decanting. Dunno if it improved micro contrast or acutance as claimed. Metered for 200, and middle photo was at end of roll and I mistakenly cut off about a 3rd of it when spooling it onto the reel, sheesh.

Nice photographs Bill. I really like the processing job you did. Great tone and contrast.

Nice processing Bill, I like your way of viewing and composing, the front of that car is brutal and I like the way you play with the contrasts.
Also, the Mamiyaflex is a camera I´ve been looking at many times, almost bought one some months ago and regret that I didn´t. I bet it´s fun to shoot with?

Fredrik, thanks for the kind words, the Mamiyaflex is heavier than most TLRs, but I like it. The long bellows allows some nice close-up capability, too: the wider the lens, the closer you can get.

very nice set, bill
great clinic on light, reflection and shadow
Rob, thanks, too kind.
