Leica M3 Selfie
I found myself taking selfies last night for a number of reasons. I was ready to use my Leica M3 again but remembered even after the recalibration that I had expected some out of focus images with it and with using the Leica Summicron 50 DR lens. The Leica Summicron 50 DR lens has given me perhaps some of my sharpest images on the M3 so I wanted to use the combo in harmony. I had no faith in the setup so wanted to test before taking on a trip. (I had mostly OOF images from Ukraine in the summer with this setup so didnt want to suffer twice!) That was before the M3 was recalibrated. I like the DR as I can focus much closer as shown here.
So aswell as testing the Leica kit I also wanted tto develop colour film in Xtol. I have developed Kodak BW400CN C41 B&W film in Xtol before so assumed it would work the same.
Leica M3 + Leica Summicron 50mm f2 DR + googles + expired Fuji Superia 200 in Xtol (200@100)
Works well :) I just developed it with a roll of 120 Tri-X as had space in the tank :)
Xtol 250:Water 750, 10mins, 30 degrees, Epson v800 scan, image flipped in PP
Vignetting 95% from lighting used. Just darkened overall image in PP
.great to be back on the M3 ;)
