Plaubel Makina 67 with Fuji Provia 400X

A few more images for today from my recently developed slide films rolls. This time, with the Plaubel Makina 67 and Fuji Provia 400X.

This 400 ISO slide film is my first choice for a travel color film for the Makina. Being a 6×7 medium format camera means that in order to have great depth of field you need to work with small apertures. Two stops above the Provia 100F means that this can easily be achieved in daylight and at the same time it gives you plenty of speed for low light photography (mainly after dusk since at night the f2.8 aperture of the Plaubel most times is not enough).

Also, there’s no need for a tripod. Now, if I want perfect sharpness and stability I will use a tripod but for travel photography I rarely carry a tripod with me, so unless my subject is a few meters away from my car I will shoot handheld.

Overall, a great quality film with fine grain (medium format also helps reducing evident grain compared to 35mm format).

Here are the rest of the images.
