Mountain Lake

2012-061-07

The Novar lens on the Zeiss Ikon Super Ikonta III is very soft, and if used at maximum aperture (f/3,5), the corners, especially, suffer a lot. One wouldn’t think that maximum aperture was needed for a shot like this – and I think it’s rather shot at f/4 – but up there, the wind made it hard to hold the camera still. I used slow film (probably Pan F or perhaps Neopan) and needed maximum shutter speed (which is supposed to be 1/500, but I suspect that it’s much slower).

I got access to a superb Hasselblad film scanner a couple of weeks ago and have started to scan the few old medium format negatives I have. Not much is worth sharing, but I quite liked this one.
