    This is the 1998 vintage...



    I've written a blog about using out of date film, if you're interested you can read it here

    UniB I read your blog. That's good to know, as I have expired (5 or 6 years old) E100VS and Tmax in my freezer. I was wondering if it would be any good. I was gonna shoot it anyway- in fact I did some this past weekend, as I am still in the learning process with 4x5.

    Thanks

    Wonderful Brad!

    Beautiful Spiky. I like the inclusion of the home in the frame.

    Oldie but goodie from May of 2000 at Lassen Peak, California. It was still a snowy summer up there as I remember.

    Tachihara 4x5 Field, Nikkor 150mm 5.6, Kodak Tri-X.

    I always wondered about having a fixed focus camera. I know that most early box cameras were built this way, but I always worried about having everything in focus. It appears that if you are focused on 10 feet, you have found the sweet spot! I used my DOF calculator, and your 47mm lens should have a near focus of 4.421 feet, with a far focus of infinity, at F8. Not bad!

    Do you use a center ND filter on this lens?

    Jon
    Well, the camera is performing very well, when I made up my mind and fixed the focusing point for 10 feet, it was because if I shoot with 400 asa film and f11 (this lens has maximum aperture at f5.6 and minimum at f32) I will have a good optical resolution plus good DOF and even with the center filter (wich yes, I use all the time, because vignetting is 2 f-stops from center to borders) I can shoot with 1/250s (without center filter it would be 1/1000s) on a sunny day.
    As Mr. AA said, it is safer to shoot handheld 2 f-stops above the focal distance of the lens (for 35mm format). This lens is equivalent to a 12mm in 35mm format so, the "safe" shutter speed for handheld shooting would be 1/60s, according to Ansel's statement. That allows me to shoot safelly with yellow and even orange filter and, probably even with a 25A red filter, as long as I keep the lens at f11.
    However, I didn't make any handheld photo with it, yet!

    Took this at Yzerfontein on the South African West Coast. Just recently have built up my darkroom so that i can start developing stuff. Currently using a Graflex 4x5 that still smells of mothballs. Still in working order though.

    by the by. Everybody heading this way for the World Cup and want to know about some nice locations can contact me anytime. I am sure most of the Saffas on this site will be glad to help all visitors.
