My dog, Oscar
Another shot of the Magic Mouse. Will try to take some reflection shots on a glass table tonight!
I took a bunch of shots of flowers the other day including some with bees, Here's one:
A few weeks of shooting...
Some images I have taken over the past several weeks. Some good and some okay but at least I am up and about with the Canon...
Some really nice images being posted...

Two from the Dog Park:
Some recent pics I have taken:
6x6 in colour. Magic.
Just a snapshot I took on my evening walk... haven't had too much time to take pictures lately, unfortunately.
Thought I recognised these locations... you still in Melbourne? I live 5 mins from there!
Haven't shot anything recently lately except some for a friend's band:
Some of my stuff lives on carbonmade at haydn
No, I was just visiting a friend for the weekend. Her sister is an amazing photographer and she let me borrow her Rolleiflex. Liked using it so much that I bought one for myself recently.
Those things are fantastic - does it shoot 120? how much it set you back?
This isn't exactly still photography, but is photography all the same - an impromptu rendition of Jeff Buckley's version of 'A Satisfied Mind', sung by Charlie Lim:
Shot on a 5d Mk II with an EF 50mm f/1.4.
Yeah, 120 film. Some models can take 220 and with a Rolleikin adapter, you can even use 35mm film as well.
As for the price, I paid US$700 for mine. Expensive, but it's is one of the rarer models with an f2.8 Planar lens and is meterless, which essentially means it's going to command a higher than usual price. A basic Rolleiflex like an Automat or a T with an f3.5 Tessar lens will usually set you back around $300-$350, with no great difference in image quality.
Very cool man. I get the 2.8 lens, but why would a meterless model be more expensive? seems to me it would just be less practical...
Second picture is great. though a bit stalkery given the car dash at the bottom
Recently was given this by my grandfather, who bought this in [i think] the 1930s:
fully-functioning, takes 120 film, looking forward to trying it out
I think the premium stems from the relative scarcity of the meterless Rollei's. In later models (E/F), the majority of them have light meters, most of which are neither accurate or functional nowadays. My personal view is that a meterless model looks better and considering that I already have a handheld light meter, an inbuilt meter wouldn't be of any use.
As for my second picture, I've had a few comments about that. I'll have to crop it a bit for my final edit.
I thought I would put some of mine here as well! I looked around the thread..amazing pictures by everyone :t-cheers:
All of mine are taken with my phone
This is one of my favorite pictures I took from the DC Cherry Blossom Fest in Spring. It is something about the dirty stuffed animal, but the stitched on smile.
There was a lot of background light that really "outlined" the dog.
A shot of downtown Munich from about a week ago. Now it's all covered with snow again...
