yesterday: another afternoon walk seen in infrared

chicken seen with the infrared camera, this afternoon

two “macro” (roughly 1:5) shots from yesterday’s roll of delta 100 in the pentax sp 500.

the little zoom lens that came with the camera does quite a lot of different things, it’s a bit astonishing considering it’s probably around 40 years old.

asahi pentax sp 500 - my first go at “playing with a cheap m42 camera”.

it is not in perfect condition: the mirror doesn’t come back up after releasing the shutter for times between 1s and 1/8s (i haven’t tried the light meter yet).

loaded and exposed a roll of pretty expired ilford delta 100 this afternoon. planning to develop it this evening, so i can find out if the camera has light leaks - or any other interesting properties :)

UPDATE: the developed film looks good at first sight - definitely no obvious light leaks.

new thing: russian cyclop 1,5/85 lens with m42 mount. took a few test photos on the canon ef digital camera with a simple adapter.

lesson learned: get adapters that allow for autofocus confirm.
