The film - Roll in a day / A day in a roll - April 21st 2012

The Tri-X 400 film that I shot on April 21st came back from the lab yesterday.

You can see the whole roll on my flickr set here. I started my roll of film at 9am having breakfast in Augsburg and finished it at home in Salzburg at 5pm. My favorite shots are these:

mild hangover breakfast (02/36)
(Ikonta 522/24, Kodak Tri-X 400, ISO 400/27°)

foreground brake (07/36)
(Ikonta 522/24, Kodak Tri-X 400, ISO 400/27°)

US Tram (22/36)
(Ikonta 522/24, Kodak Tri-X 400, ISO 400/27°)

spring leaves (25/36)
(Ikonta 522/24, Kodak Tri-X 400, ISO 400/27°)

we scream for ice cream (30/36)
(Ikonta 522/24, Kodak Tri-X 400, ISO 400/27°)

It was again a lot of fun, and not at all difficult to shoot the whole 36 exposure roll. I'm also impressed with the performance of the Novar lens. As I said, I wanted to sacrifice this camera to donate the film transport to my dormant Contessa 533/24. As it turned out, I managed to fix the film transport in the Contessa without needing anything from the Ikonta, so it seems I got myself yet another little 35mm viewfinder camera... :)
