This last week was filled with developing some odds and ends left over after my film development marathon. Some Double-X, Orwo UN54 and some Retro 400s in 120, all developed at a leisurely pace. The last tank were actually 4 rolls of Retro 400s that caused a bit of a Jobo CPE-2 failure. After 340 rolls developed in my secondhand CPE-2 the motor side magnet came off and I had to do the fixer stage by hand. For now I have attempted to fix the problem with some superglue, but I’m a bit hesitant to test it out properly before I have industrial strength epoxy steel for backup. The Jobo failing during the development stage would be quite disastrous, so I’ll have to resort to other methods for now until I’m quite sure that the glue will hold. 340 rolls without a complaint though and now a minor failure that can be solved with glue, that’s not too bad! I’m sure my CPE-2 will still keep going for a while, which is rather good because it has become a really essential tool in my film workflow.

I also managed to shoot a few rolls over the last week and even shot in the rain one afternoon because I was eager to play with my new Nokton 35mm f/1.2 and some motion picture film – in this case Kodak Vision 3 500T. So far I’ve shot 10 rolls with the lens and have only seen two of them. Those were enough to make me fall in love with the lens though and I’m now testing it in all sorts of conditions, shooting it from the hip during the day like my Zeiss lens, shooting from eye-level in low light, with colour and black and white. Although a little heavy it’s certainly a versatile lens and I’m sure that I will use it a lot. With the weight it’s not really the best choice for an everyday kind of lens and 35mm is a bit wide for shooting from eye-level during the day, at least for my taste, but I believe that this is the perfect lens for winter evenings.

Not a very exciting week? Well, no, it’s getting quite wintery cold and rainy here – for local standards obviously – and bad weather tends to disrupt everything here. Last week we really had floods and floods of rain, which I always find exceptionally annoying. I don’t like shooting in the rain.

In any case, let’s get on with some photos now. This time I’m showing you pictures from the beginning of March mostly taken with my M6 and Biogon on APX 400, with a few Nokton f/1.1 exceptions here and there.

Pictures taken with: Leica M6 with Zeiss ZM C-Biogon 35mm f/2.8 and Voigtländer Nokton 50mm f/1.1.

Starting with: M6 / Biogon / APX-400 @800 / HC-110.
