End of Route III

My third installment of the series of photos I took at a train station. These are photos taken with the Plaubel Makina 67 and Kodak TMAX 100 film.
The look of the b&w film and the tonality of medium format makes is always different compared to my digital b&w images. That of course shows more when I print the images.



One more think I like with medium format is the difference in focal length compared to a full frame, APS-C or 4/3 sensor. The Makina is a 6×7 camera which means that although you have a 80mm f/2.8 lens, it is a 40mm (full frame equivalent) but still retains the characteristics of a 80mm lens. That means you can shoot more close than you would if you used a 80mm lens on my Nikon D800E for example and that creates a narrower depth of field. So, you do get a different looking image.

I have repeatedly stated that the Plaubel is my all time favorite camera, and I am glad I was able to have it fully serviced from Plaubel itself in Germany. It is like a brand new camera and I am sure it will serve me for many many years.

Enjoy the rest of the photos.
