Just before the holidays this pivotal 2016, I was able to acquire a series of cameras from a family found through a local listing on Craiglist. Within the lot was a Kodak Retina iia film camera built somewhere between 1951 and 1954. I really did not expect it to work at all, but as I played with it, and worked on discovering many of its features, I came to realize that it was fully functional. Almost on the same day, I also received a shipment of various odd films from Film Photography Project. Among them was this Plus-X 5231 cinematic film, which promised to deliver silky smooth tones (turns out, only if you develop it properly - a task I did not complete as well as I should have). I photographed Woodstock, IL on a lonely post Christmas morning. The images were not what I thought they would be, but it did create an interesting look - there was quite a bit of noise to contend with, the density of the negs was high....but I liked it, all in all. I will definitely shoot with the camera again. Not sure about the film. You can view the images here, or you can watch a video presentation by clicking below.
