Spent a morning on the streets with the new to me Zeiss Contina. I think I have found my favorite camera for my street photography.
Slow morning, not too many people out and about.
Although there was a time trial for a bicycle race.
Stopped by a garage sale this morning. Picked up a Zeiss Contina 1A
$10 and mint condition, it is like new even had the owners manual in the hard shell case. Funny thing is, I have been looking for this exact model for quite some time. Exactly what I wanted for my street photography.
Here are some more scans from today. No work done in lightroom yet. Straight off the negatives. Test roll to see how the film and developer matched up.
Grain structure suitability is very subjective, but this combo is just what I was looking for. Will work nicely for gritty street photography...
Here are a couple from today. Both shot at iso 100, f5.6, 20 second shutter speed with a Hoya R72filter. My D7100 takes 4 times longer shutter speeds to get the same exposure as my D40. Just shows you how much the filters over the sensors have changed.
