    Film Fat 120 rolls

    Take up spool chamber of Mamiya Press film back showing the spring steel plate and roller that put pressure on the back of the spooled film and might well aid tight spooling preventing the light leak problems that Jose is experiencing. Barrie

    Film Fat 120 rolls

    It's many a long year since I put any film through my Mamiya Press camera, but might the problem be that the shiny spring steel flap that bears against the film backing as it is wound onto the take up spool is not be exerting enough pressure, try some gentle bending so it bears harder against...

    Hi Richard, yes the stone viaduct in the distance on the left is also on a curve which continues beyond the end of that viaduct, all in all it probably turns through 120 degrees before turning back again the other way. In between the two bridges is Saltash Station, the image below shows a train...

    B&W: Words/No Words

    With the colour version posted in the show lighthouses thread I thought I'd try a monochrome version. I think I like it better. The full moon rises virtually behind Start Point lighthouse as seen from Peartree Point a little after sunset on just three nights a year, once in December, once in...

    SHOW Lighthouses

    There are just three nights in the year when the full moon rises alongside Start Point Lighthouse at the same time that the lighthouse starts to flash which is before it's pitch black, one each in December, January and February as viewed from Peartree Point. This was 19th January 2011. The one...

    Animals Show Birds

    For some years I made a close study of Great Crested Grebes (Podiceps cristatus) at Slapton Ley National Nature Reserve where I used to volunteer. These images are from a long sequence taken at the nest as one bird relieves the other in the duty of incubating the eggs. Here the returning bird...

    This is from 9 springs ago (frightening) using a borrowed lens. Common Whitethroat (Sylvia communis) Obviously carrying food for young in the nest. The population of this species crashed in Europe in 1970 by 90%, it was eventually realised that this was due to drought conditions in the Sahel...

    HMS Somerset (Type 23 class Frigate) This ship has actually entered shot from the left hand side, you can just see the remains of the wake to the left of the West Mallard Buoy, and then made a turn to starboard of more than 90 degrees to bring her on to her present course. Anything much larger...

    This guy has led me a merry dance all day, it only appears for a few minutes every hour, so has a feeding circuit. It's rather shy so won't let me get close and I only just managed this shot with the closing light of the day, and then it's heavily cropped. I had tried earlier with the Panasonic...
