So here are the technical details .. 3 films were used in the shots below : AGFA Photo CT Precisa 100 (fresh), Provia 400X (fresh) and Reala 100 - expired by 2 years .. Needless to say and preempting already - my fav shots are certainly those with the Reala 100, the "medieval" once ..
All films in a Nikon 28 Ti. A bunch of shots were taken with the newly acquired Pentax MX-1 compact digital, which only impresses so far .. The Nikon refused to switch off and retract the lens at some point in the cold and i had a heart-sinking moment for a few seconds, but then it eventually woke up and shut and started ;-)
Finally i like shooting expired Reala at EV-1, after disastrous results at EV0or EV+1 - but this could have been me too .. The AGFA was shot either at EV+1 or EV0, following recommendations to pull this film, and the Provia 400X - at box speed - i get best results with it when shooting it uncorrected. All scans below a very slightly processed for exposure in certain cases, and sharpened for here. Scanned using Canon 9000F
On to the images : a mixed bag of street and Stephanplatz and surroundings, a sneak peak into Stadtpark - all in all a fraction of what can be seen in this wonderful city !
In the heart of "medieval" Vienna please !
Stadtpark .. A lovely small park very close to the city centre .. Agfa CT Precisa ..
Finally, the pleasure to use the owner of a delightful digital output - the Pentax MX-1 .. All images below were taken handheld, no support .. It has its value and convenience in processing - both from cost as well as speed pov, yet, I'm constantly drawn back to film, to the Provia 400X in particular
