Spring 2000


These photos were all taken on a Rolleiflex 2.8F Twin Lens Reflex, circa 1969-1970, which is totally mechanical, uses no batteries, takes 12 or 24 shots on 120 or 220 rollfilm (which offers negatives nearly 4 times larger than 35mm).  The Carl Zeiss 2.8 Planar was as good a lens as was available at the time, and despite lacking modern multi-coating, remains a fine optic today.  All in all, it's a fine picture-taker, ergonomic by way of simplicity, and its "classic 50's and 60's" appearance makes it a novelty as well.

The first three photos were taken with Kodak TXP Tri-X Professional 220, the last three Bronx zoo photos were Ilford Delta 3200, a remarkable ultra-fast film available in both 120 and 35mm formats.

Scanning was done on a Minolta Dimage Scan Multi, which can scan 16mm, 35mm, APS and medium format all the way up to 6x9.
