CA Desert – Canon AE-1 on Konica SR-G 160

Took a little trip out to the CA High Desert last week, and shot some new film.  Its Konica SR-G160 that I bought in 100 ft rolls and load into cartridges myself.  Here’s a video I made about bulk loading 35mm film: 

Enough of that, lets get to the photos!! These were shot on a Canon AE-1 w/ 50mm f/1.4, and I used a prism filter for a couple.03340001 03340004 03340006 03340008 03340010 03340011 03340015

Lake Mead/Hoover Dam – Nikon Sport Touch

Last week while I was out in Las Vegas, I took a little detour out to the Hoover Dam.  I hadn’t been since I was a kid, and since then they have built the huge suspension bridge that towers over the dam.  This little point and shoot produces much sharper images than I had expected.

Camera: Nikon Sport Touch 35mm f/3.5
Film: Fuji Superia X-TRA 400ISO

Las Vegas w/ an Olympus XA3

The XA3 is almost identical to the XA2, except that it can read DX coding on film cartridges, and there is a Backlight Compensation feature(and maybe a few other differences that aren’t quite as obvious. Here’s some photos I took this week in Las Vegas while out here for work.
