I organised a Photo -Trip to Warley Wildlife Reserve near BRENTWOOD Essex ENGLAND for members of Brentwood & District Photographic Club -- 5 of us turned up --- I had the 'Go-Ahead' from my Oncology Nurse on Friday March 20th if I did 'Social Distancing' so NO members could 'Breath on ' my Lovely 6x7 Mk II !
I took 105mm f2.4 SMC Takumar, SMC Pentax 6x7 45mm f4 and the SMC Takumar 135mm Macro + Filters I used the 'Matrix ' metering and all were perfectly exposed using 200 ASA as film was old dated 06/2005
105mm lens @ f16 with Pentax Polariser

I know it's the photographer and not the camera that's important, but even so the sheer joy of looking through a 6x7cm viewfinder for the first time is something that just needs to be experienced. It inspires a sort of joy in the photography and a photographer enjoying using the kit is I'm sure a better photographer as a consequence. These pictures are great and club outings like this are also a great opportunity. More people should turn up and experience them.
Best regards, John

Wonderful showing of the camera, an elderly film and the photographer's skill in using them.

Tia -- yes i always use extra Exposure for outdated C41 films and B&W -- here i rated the 400 ASA to 200ASA
but the film had been in my Fridge for years -- for E6 SLIDE films sometimes you do not need to downrate so much TEST FIRST

5 would be my pick, there's a delicate yet strong movement in those daffodils leading to the trees and beyond.
