Lo-Fi Fun: Nikonos Edition

In July of this year, I vacationed in Bermuda. The weather was lovely despite the sweltering heat that was only surpassed in intensity by the humidity. Just before my trip, I purchased a Nikonos IV-A on eBay.  The results are derpy at best and I had some trouble scanning the negatives... but here they are.

Poland in Polaroids

On my recent trip to Poland, I brought my Polaroid SX-70 camera as well as a whole lot of film. 

120 Film - Black and White from Autumn

I'm so negligent when it comes to film. I let the exposed rolls sit and rot before I take them to get developed. I often forget to pick them up once they've been developed (unless they come in the mail, in which case, there's no good excuse there. It's literally delivered to me). I wait to scan them and I wait even longer to process them and longer still to post them.

The likelihood that anyone actually reads or sees any of this is rather slim, but whatever. Here they are: the 120 photos from my Lubitel 166B and my Diana F+ in black and white.

I hardly ever use 120 film in color. I tend to think Black and white as a little more forgiving. Post-processing is easier. And I don't have to pay through the nose to get it developed. In fact, I'll be visiting Mr. Poster in Broad Ripple tomorrow to get the film he's developed. But I did stick a Kodak Ektar 200 in there (I think). Here are some of the photos I got back

Coming up next: 120 and 35mm black and white.
