At the river. part 2.

The rest of the AgfaPhoto Vista+ 200, which I used in a comparison with the Agfa Vista 200, in the Chinon CP-7m I shot with the Hanimex 2.8/28mm and the Petri 2/50mm lenses, both without a filter, and the Petri 2.8/135mm lens with the soft focus filter.

The multicolor effect. part 2.

In fact I wanted to make a comparison between the real Agfa Vista 200 (expired since 01/2009) and the AgfaPhoto Vista+ 200 (expired since 04/2015), which is a labeld Fuji Superia 200, but I'm not the guy who make such boring things. Therefore I've done it the way I like it and shot both films with the multicolor effect filter. I used the bulky Chinon CP-7m with the Hanimex 2.8/28mm lens, which is called in some photo forums the worst 28mm lens ever.

What a great comparison, I like it a lot!!! I like the pictures with the Agfa Vista 200 a little bit more, but there are many factors like the position of the filter, which you can turn, and of course the scene of the pictures and a lot more details, which make the difference and of course the films...

the macro effect: the bellows macro setup.

Last time I shot macro pictures with two monster setups (part 1 and 2), but this time is much more monsterously, because I used an old M42 Pentacon bellows in combintaion with a Helios 44-2 2/58mm lens at my Canon DSLR.

It's a little bit tricky to photograph with a bellows and it's better to use it with a tripod, but I wanted to make some quick macro shots, therefore I didn't use one.

From Russia with Love! part 2.

I like a lot Russian cameras. I have a FED 4, a Zorki 4 and some Zenits. I even just had a Smena Symbol from Lomo, but I sold it some years ago. The Russian cameras have an own charme.
Some guys from Austria got to know the charme of the LC-A back in the 1990s, too. Later they found the Lomographic Society and then the hype of the Lomos started in the whole world.
In 2003 my sister gave me as a present an Actionsampler. This was my first contact with the world of the Lomographic Society. Of course, I also wanted this little Russian camera from Lomo. But the prices at the Society were and are very high and even the fleamarket prices were and are too high. In 2005 I saw for the first time a LC-A at a fleamarket in Hannover, Germany. It was quite damaged and shabby, but the seller wanted 40 Euro. I didn't buy it.
After many years of waiting and searching, finally I found a wonderful, working and original Lomo LC-A with the manual, the original box and an Orwo NP20 film inside for a really good price.

I carefully removed the Orwo, because I want to use it for the 2-Cameras-Double-Exposure-Project. Later I've loaded the Lomo with a since 11/2006 expired Kodacolor VR+400 and shot some winter impressions.
