Stockholm Summer 'Pop' - Redscale Film, Rodenstock and the Chinon CE-4


I made some redscale film by flipping Kodak Ultramax 400 then exposed it at 25-50 ASA. These are some photographs I made in the midst of summer with my adapted 50 mm DKL mount Rodenstock Retina-Ysarex on my Chinon CE-4.

The amazing preserved 17th century war ship Vasa is exhibited in a huge museum built on top of the dry dock where they put her after lifting her out of the mud some 60 years ago.

When I photographed in the museum I had to expose with less light, so those photos are very red. Further down you see some exposures where redscale really shines, in my opinion.

Below you see the prow of the ship. There's a toilet to the right. One out of two for the entire crew.

Below is a model version of the stern of the ship.


This is one of many wooden statues meant to depict the peoples ruled by the Swedish monarch who comissioned the ship. He must be Lithuanian.

Above you see the actual ship.

Chaika Leica

Well, here's a Chaika 2M that I bought from Alex Helios via Instagram.  It's a great full manual viewfinder half-frame camera. The wheel on the top is for shutter time selection, from B to 1/30th to 1/250th of a second. The square button on the front right of the camera is the release/exposure. The lens mounted on the camera in the picture is not the original Industar-69. The Chaika is a rare model compact camera since the prime lens is detachable. What is more is that it has M39 screw mount. But - like with the Paxette M39 system - you can't get focus with a lens from another M39 system. Unless you adapt the lens or - in this case - the camera (mount)! The Chaika mount is easily detached from the body by loosening four screws. If I want to mount the Leica thread mount M39 (LTM) lenses on the Chaika - which is my goal with this mod - I have to add 1.3mm to the mount. That is what is needed to change the camera's flange focal distance (FFD) from Chaika system to L

Redscale Film in a Halina 35X

  I made a Kodak Ultramax 400 ASA colour film into redscale last summer. I exposed it at 25 to 100 ASA. These are some of the photos. Visit my  Etsy shop  for cameras and related stuff,  the  facebook group  on modding lenses and cameras or my Instagram accounts ourbooksmalmo or flashknappen .

Stare Crazy - a Budget Wide-Angle Lens Solution for my Olympus Pen F

I fitted a wide-angle screw-on lens for a Konica 8 Zoom super-8 camera on my Steinheil Cassarit 45 mm and my Voigtlander Color-Lanthar 42 mm. I got WIDE on my half-frame camera!   It wasn't pretty, but it did the job for sure! I've been racking my brains for years trying to come up with a low budget wide-angle solution for the Pen F, which is the SLR I use the most. I got more than I could wish for because of all the character the lens contributes to photos! The film is a Fuji Ultramax 400 which I haven't colour corrected in any way. I increased contrast. The rest is the work of the scanning program. I didn't find the Ghostbusters' garage. It's my brother's!
