A few images shot with the Plaubel Makina 67 and Kodak Portra 400 film. I used a ND8 filter (3 stops) so that I can be able to shoot at the apertures I wanted to. The top shutter speed for the Makina 67 is 1/500, so a ND filter is necessary in broad daylight if you want to shoot at f/2.8 or f/4.
Since I currently don’t have access to the Nikon Coolscan 9000, scans were made with the Epson V500. A decent flatbed scanner, but nowhere close to the images I used to get from the Coolscan. The good thing is that I can always send the negatives to a good lab and get a proper scan for the photos I want.
These are more like test images to get used again on shooting the Plaubel. I rated Portra at box speed (ISO 400), but will definitely shoot a roll at ISO 200, to see how it looks.
