Rodenstock Clarovid II Fuji Reala Testfilm (02)
Rodenstock Clarovid II
German 6x9 folder for 120 type rollfilm. Produced around 1934.
Lens : G.Rodenstock München Ysar 1:3,9 f=10,5cm
Shutter : Deckel Compur leafshutter.

First testfilm, Fuji Reala 100
Shutterspeed 1/250, Diaphragma 1:11, Focus set at about 30 meters.

Scanned with Plustek Opticfilm 120 at 2650ppi, downscaled to 1324ppi.
NO sharpening and NO IR dust reduction.

Well, cannot say that i'm really impressed with the performance of the Ysar lens.
Although color rendering looks good the lens seems to lack contrast and sharpness.
Also observed in all images made on tripod and using a cable shutter release is unsharpness caused by a horizontal vibration of the camera !

Strange enough this image, taken with the camera hand-held, didn't suffer from camera shake !
Guess that mounting it on a tripod stiffens the mechanism and leads to resonance while firing the shutter.
