My 120mm roll on minolta autocord

It's been a while since i last update the blog.
Having my annual In camp training as well as solving issues with the seller of my newly acquired minolta autocord. There is something wrong with the camera and im glad that we resolve the issue amicably. I got back the partial refund that i wanted.
Recently, i started developing my first 120mm format black white negative. As usual, something happened and the first roll was gone. It was a little sad for me as there are some really nice pictures captured.

Not giving up, i tried a 2nd roll immediately and finally got some better results. Guess i need to practice more in handling the negatives.

Can see the bokeh went out of shape.

I lost 3 last frame which i cant understand if its the camera or the developing process. Will try a roll of color negative and get the lab to scan for me.

My Self developed first B&W roll!

Finally i gotten my first roll developed. There was some glitch but overall, not too bad. Guess i really need lotsa practice on reeling the film.
Will be getting the easier AP reel tank soon. Stainless steel is still too tough for me.

Thanks to Ernest who got me all excited after seeing his wonderful B&W. Mikhail who gave me 2 rolls of TriX..and Patrick who guided me through the whole process!

This roll of film was taken on a few different occasion and coincidentally, i realised most are taken at Hard Rock Hotel.


@ Hard Rock Hotel

@ Zhang Jing Xuan's concert, Hard Rock Convention Centre


My favourite shot!



Will be trying my first roll of 120mm soon!

Finally Here!

My Minolta Autocord CDS II
Finally arrived from Ebay yesterday. Was a little disappointed with the description as the aperture isnt smooth and at certain point will get stuck but overall, it doesnt require any form of cleaning as at now.

Will run my first roll of film 2 weeks later!

A random picture

Its a Sunday morning and while my plans of developing my own negatives is still in progress...(which means no pictures as at now), i have decided to take my DSLR out of the dry cabi for some picture taking.

The setup for this picture was quite simple, a ring light with my 55mm f1.2 nikkor...and some easy post processing. I wanted to try out my photoshop but ended up using the easy photoscape that is meant for lazy people like me. :)
