Sonny

Sonny-1

Nature walk yesterday to try and blow off some steam…

The GF670 lends itself well to just such an adventure; which is really why I decided to get back into it in the first place.

(Well that, and the screamin’ deal…)

Anyhoo, I have exhaustively come to the conclusion that at f/3.5, it is probably not pin-sharp.

You really have to stop down to f/4 to get reliable sharpness, and I don’t think it is just missed focus.

(…Or for that matter, moving children).

Sonny-2

Sonny-3

These were shot on Portra 400 at ISO 1600, and developed for 5:20 on new chemicals.

An easy two-stop push.

As a result: I am further purplexed.

They are much more grainy than the last ridiculous push, which really has me trying to figure out why.

Stay tuned.

      Thanks Bijan,

      On the whole, I’d have to say…no.

      It is more satisfying to process (…oy! Those negatives!!) but the scanning aspect really makes it a big pain. (Sometimes I really wonder why I bother!) I am going to take the GF670 on our Hawaii vacation this spring, and have all the rolls processed by Richard Photo before we return.

      -Mark.
