I recently developed a roll that I had shot with my F75 that I had bought for a steal price of 16 euros. I had shot this film in two locations that had written in two separate posts.At the Old Train Station of Megara and at Faliron. In both posts I had photos taken with my D3200. In this roll I had similar shots on film to the ones I took with my DSLR.

In my eyes the film can still stand next to digital at least to my taste,It adds character that I most times add in post proccessing in my digital photos. Also with film you are most likely going to make prints and thats a nice thing that sometimes we forget with the digital photos.

I had recently received an Olympus OM-20, another child of the OM film slr family from Olympus.

The OM20 was released in 1983. It was called OM G on some markets. It existed in chrome and in black finish.

It is basically an OM10 with manual shutter speed ring built-in, and a few other advances. These include a PC-sync flash connection, [LED] warnings in the viewfinder, built-in manual metering, and provision for attaching a steady grip. It didn’t replace the OM10, but was available alongside it.

The OM20 overall could be described as an good all around player with small in size easy to use with a solid body. Capable of manual and aperture control shots. The metering is trustworthy the viewfinder clear and simple. Using the various Zuiko lenses as it happens with the other OM series can produce great results.

My Version is the chrome one.

Here is a small video review.

Last weekend I had loaded an Kodak ProImage 100,and when I was quite happy with the results the camera performed perfectly and some of the results are below.

Art behind bars

I finally developed a roll shot with the Nikon FM10,that I had acquired last month. I wanted to have the camera tested so I used Kodak ProImage 100 that I had bought in bulk. I only had done an experimental development in B&W chemistry Rodinal semi stand.I was eager to get the results and since the shooting took place In a cloudy to rainy day in the woods I wasn’t so optimistic.I had pushed my luck,low ISO,low light and handheld. Here are the results.

I like the results and I am sure in better light will be better.The Nikon FM10 performed as expected.

Bottom Line ….Success get out and shoot.

 Today, I really wanted to get out and take some photographs. I had loaded two film cameras and my new EPL5 was ready from last night. The weather was not my ally, it was rainy ,low light with wind. But no despair I had to try taking some shots, so later in the morning the weather seemed to calm a bit (only a bit ) and I was able to take some shots with my Olympus OM-10,with its manual adapter. I had loaded a roll of Kodak ProImage 100 colour film that I bought in bulk from Malaysia.
After I took some shots the weather started to deteriorate so I returned and since i was eager to see that I had accomplished I wanted to try develop a colour film in B&W Chemistry I had read that It could be done.
I did a stand development in Rodinal 1:100 and I plan to do more testing in 1:50 and in 1:25. The results were a really dense looking negative that only under light showed an image. After scanning it I had in my hands some images that for sure where usable. I scanned as colour negative and then in LR5 turned into B&W. A bit sharpening and some contrast and highlight manipulation. Some of the results are following. I know that the weather was awfull and the shots where taken under pressure so I have higher expectations for the future testing of this film in B&W chemistry and in C-41.

That is a 1:1 ,half frame crop of the negative scan.
