Yet another image from the first roll of colour film through my ONDU 6×6 Pocket pinhole camera.

I’m currently awaiting a delivery of Kodak Gold 200 in 120 from Analogue Wonderland and as soon as it arrives I’ll be loading a roll and shooting some pinhole pics!

YashicaMat 124G, Yashinon 80mm f/3.5 – 1/60s, f11, – Kodak T-Max 400
Developed in Ilford Ilfotec DD-X at 1:4, 8 mins at 20°c.

Another image from a twin-lens reflex (TLR) camera, but this time it’s a YashicaMat 124G.

It’s a camera I’ve never had much success with in the past… The taking lens has a little fungus inside and I’ve always found it difficult to focus. That said, previous attempts at using it were hand-held and lately I’ve been using a tripod more and more which (for me at least) makes focusing easier.

And yet another image from the Mamiya C330 twin-lens reflex (TLR) camera I’m currently trying out…

I actually managed a roll of colour film in this camera yesterday and I can’t wait to see the results!
