Hi, first post alert!

Inspired by Leon, who i think was encouraged by Sean, i have bought a Voigtlander vf101, and what abeauty it is. Attached are some recent abstracts taken in Coventry a couple of weekends ago on a rather grey day. Film is outdated Delta 400 dev in TMax 1:4, producing some slightly think negs.

I think I'm in love with this camera, it just feels right - I can hardly wait to get it out and compare results with Leon at the UK meet next month.

Comments and suggestions would be welcomed.

Very nice.

Have never been to Coventry...can you elaborate a little bit on the subject matter?

It's a great little camera no doubt, however I had issues with very fine scratches on my negs. I confirmed it was the camera by running a new roll through then examining it part way. I never found what is causing it and am thinking of having a repairshop take a look. How do your negs look, any scratching?

none on mine so far ... i have noticed that the meter needle gets stuck if it is allowed to go down all the way .... all it takes it a light tap and it springs back into life.
