Instant Film Redux

Out making tests today, and that included some instant film. Loaded a pack of Fuji FP-100c into the Hasselblad holder, attached it to the SWC/M, and here’s one of the pics.

Gives an idea of what the frame will look like. Has it’s own look, instant film does. Part retro, part impressionistic, part something else. Either way, it comes in handy to have an idea what you’re getting before you start burning film, especially with a rangefinder camera. Get out there and make some images.

Hasselblad 903SWC

Keeping with the theme of film photography, I present the Hasselblad 903SWC, which has been in reserve for about 12 years.

This beast is the only component of my Hasselblad equipment that I kept. It does take a wide angle picture in that beautiful square format. I have some Kodak Tri-X that I’ll be loading and testing of the next several weeks. Hope to report back with good results. We’ll see.

Jamis Renegade (video review)

I posted a few months ago about the Jamis Renegade Elite bicycle. Well, now I’ve ridden more than 2,900 miles and it’s time for a video review. Here it is.

This has been an excellent bicycle, exceeding all my expectations. Gravel, asphalt, trails, the Renegade rolls through and over it all. The Shimano gears have been reliable with only a few mis-shifts. The disc brakes are the best, allowing for safe riding in various conditions and the ability to feather the stopping power exactly the way it is needed.

All in all, a great bike. I look forward to many more miles, losing more weight, and having lots of fun.

Slow and Steady, bicycling

Bicycling is not only lots of fun, it’s great exercise. I’ve been adding miles to my routine over the past 6 months, gradually stretching those rides. Here’s a look at my Garmin GPS from a ride last week:

Got to 40 miles. Took me quite a while, but was a steady ride with a few breaks. My goal is 75 miles in a single ride. Hope to get there by the end of this year. No matter what, I’ll shed some pounds in the process. Be safe riding.
