    Just got back from a 5 day trip there. This is only roll 1 of 5.


    Trying to shoot wildlife with an 80mm is frustrating. Even more so when you're shooting asa 50.

    can't wait to see more

    these are excellent

    Thanks Greg! I'm about to go develop another roll, doubt if I can scan it tonight though.

    The camera seems to be doing okay. I'm having some weird misfires when the Sb-800 is on camera. I don't know if it's related. But so far, nothing out of the ordinary. Hope that stays true through the wedding tomorrow.
  4. good luck with that wedding, connor....
    then.... have that baby.... DE-SALT WATERED... please

    Great series! I really like the bunnies and the water. You are doing quite well for having only one lens. Keep up the good work. :smile:

    Thanks Michael! Hopefully I can fix this whole one lens thing. 150/4 cf is on my list. :biggrin:

    I don't want anyone complaining, so would you guys mind if I added to this thread as I developed these rolls? :smile:

    I don't think that will be a problem. BTW, what film did you use for the rabbits?
  9. Do consider the 120 f4 Macro. It's twice the price, but depending on what condition you are looking at, say if you were looking for an EX 150, you can get a BGN 120. I have the 150 and I'm very happy with it, but I've been told more than once the 120 is the lens to have. If you have any thoughts of shooting the small things, the 120 focuses to 2'7", where as the 150 is 4'6". I've bought extension tubes for the 150 and been pleased with the results so I have, for the short term, put off the 120.

    How much is the gap between 120 and 150, though? It seems that when my 80mm isnt long enough I want something much longer. I was considering the 16mm extension tube with it. The classic combo seems to be the 50-80-150, and the combo with people with a wallet seems to be 40-60-120-180. I'm 15. I have no wallet. :biggrin:

    Michael, all of these were from the same roll and it was Pan F 50.

    Nice work Connor, I particually like no3 because of the textures
    I look forward to seeing the next rolls
  12. I didn't realize you were 15 Connor!:biggrin: Wanna trade places? My wallet for your youth?:biggrin: That's awesome that you've put yourself in a place to be able to shoot a V series at 15.
    Maybe you've found this elsewhere, probably in some Hasselblad literature somewhere, but with the 150 f4 the following tubes give these approximate minimum focus distances (target to film plane)...
    10mm 3'6"
    32mm 2'7"
    64mm 2'3"
    64mm + 32MM 2' 1/2"
    64mm + 32mm + 10mm 2' 0" or 13" from the front of the lens
    with the 80 f2.8
    32mm 14"
    64mm 12 1/2" or 4" from front of lens

    I must say, though tempting, I would regret the trade later. :smile:

    Thanks for that info. I think it will definitely help with the decision.
  14. 15!!! That was a longtime ago!! And I can tell you I did not have a Hassy!!

    Great work, Connor. Here is advice from someone a little older and hopefully wiser, just stick to the 80mm for a while. You will be a better photographer for it.
