MPP Microcord Testfilm Fuji Reala 100 (04)

MPP Microcord Testfilm Fuji Reala 100 (04)
A silver cow standing for one of the small office buildings in my village.

Shutterspeed 1/300, Diaphragma 1:3,5 which is wide open.

Image a bit underexposed because there was not enough light available for 1/300 but in this case i preferred that speed to minimise the effect of camera shake (again "forgot" the tripod).

Instead of a crop (normally would have taken away much of the sky) now the full frame image to show that the Xpres lens has wide open no problem whatsoever with vignetting. Good !

Throughout shooting this testfilm i used a Rollei lens hood (size Bayonet 1) which fits snugly (though upside down) on the Microcords bayonet.

Camera :
MPP Microcord early model. Sometimes called Mk1 but not sold as such.
This English MF format (6x6) TLR was produced somewhere between 1951 and 1954.
The taking lens is a Ross,London Xpres 77,5mm 1:3,5

From the Second testfilm and with special thanks to Richard from Lockington (GB) who made it possible to shoot a decent testfilm at all !
