    I had the wonderful experience of using a virtual drum scanner for the first time yesterday. I scanned the negatives that I'd shot with the Prinz. I am really happy with the results, both from the lens and the scanner. Finally seeing the negatives inverted and scanned in such high resolution has been a great learning experience about shooting with my new (and first) large format camera.

    I am not familiar with the best way to share images on this forum, but I'll just try attaching them to the post and see how it likes it.

    EDIT: The images are being significantly compressed when I upload directly to the post. Any tips on the best way to share them here to avoid such drastic compression?

    EDIT: Figured it out, I think.

    Result !!!

    Nice images shared, plenty "sharp", note the tonality and how the in to out of focus areas render in these images. IMO, this 210mm "Prinz (ala Congo-Yamasaki)" lens fits your portraits good in many ways.

    Strive on, your best images are yet to happen.

    Very nice results, Aidan. Reminds me of a favorite “junk lens” I often use, a 5x7 Gundlach Radar.
