OTM – Rolleicord V – July 9, 2012

One of the favorite cameras in the fatcatimages collection. The Rolleicord V TLR. It is a gem of a camera to use and the shot was taken at this night’s Ann Arbor Area Crappy Camera Club meeting…

Okay. Here is another shot from my Rolleicord V and Kodak Portra film. However, this shot was underexposed and fixed in Photoshop Lightroom (sort of). However, I like how the Henry Moore scupture is highlighted in this image…

DIA Great Hall

DIA Great Hall, originally uploaded by spakulsk.

Who says digital is better than film? Here is an incredible image of the Detroit Institute of Art’s Great Hall shot with a fifty+ year old Rolleicord V and Kodak Portra film. This image is absolutely HUGE! When I first uploaded to flickr, Lightroom gave me an error stating the image was too big for upload (maxes out the maximum permissible file size) – so I had to degrade this image to 85% and still the detail is here! Amazing, a fifty year old medium format camera can blow away today’s top of the line full frame DLSRs! That just shows you… FILM IS NOT DEAD!

Rolleicord in Vienna

Rolleicord in Vienna, originally uploaded by spakulsk.

An overlooked shot of Vienna from my Rolleicord. Shot on Kodak Portra 120 film (ISO 400) and then adding the Speia tone in Photoshop Lightroom. I like the shadows of the buildlings against the bright mid afternoon summertime sun…
