few vertical shots…

also taken yesterday on all three cameras. While with the 35mm cameras you just turn the device on its side and take photos, with the medium-format Pentacon everything is more complicated. On the focusing screen, you see everything upside down and for a long time you try to get the photographed object to some plane. When using medium-format film 135, when shooting with perforations, you also get rid of the possibility to rotate the image to the plane when developing photos. It’s probably the same when you tell a right-hander to write something with his left hand …

a few pictures from yesterday’s photo shoot in our small park on the hill. Yesterday, outside of Zorkij camera testing, I also took photos by Leica for subsequent evaluation and compare results. The same places, the same material …

6 x 6 x 135 =

The another compositional experiment with cine-film 135 in a medium format camera 6×6. Yesterday I took with three cameras (Leica, Zorkij, Pentacon) so the photos published yesterday will be similar to today’s..

Today’s …

testing of the Zorkij 1(export version) camera turned out great. The sky was festively blue and the sun was shining and warming. I tested the camera by shooting in the shade, shooting in backlight with an aperture of f5.6 -16 and a shutter speed of 1/100 – 1/500. Fomapan 400Action cine-film was loaded into the Zorkij. Judge for yourself. The camera Zorkij 1(Soviet copy of Leica II) made in 1950 is a great machine.

be the copies from the Soviet Union…

from time to time I manage to monetize a photo. They will then use the earnings again for the photo shoot. I managed to make money on one old camera for two photos. In the 1950s, the Soviet Union began making a copy of the German Leica II from the 1930s. The device was named Zorkij 1. Both the Leica and the Soviet Zorki are fully mechanical machines and are essentially indestructible. The photos from the Leica instruments are unique … so I’ll try the Soviet Zorki and the Industar lens (Industar is a copy of the Carl Zeiss Tessar lens). Yesterday I cleaned and lubricated the Zorkij device and everything seems to be working. The film is already inside and waiting ….
