As mentioned in previous posts, the test results of the Minox 35 GT with Kodak Tri-x has been less satisfactory. The negative was too contrasty and grainy. What disappointed me the most was the greytones compression, used as I was to the excellent results of the same Tri-x in 120 format.
Months ago, I published a post about the Lubitel 166U and one about the Agfa Synchro Box. During these days, I shot with the little Minox 35 Gt too. Since I had started a new roll of film, I waited to finish it, before developing both …. But time passed, and just recently, I developed the second one. In the first case, I used a Kentmere 100 film, souped in Ars-Imago Fd with the traditional tank. In the second, a Kodak Trix 400, with the same developer but using the Agfa Rondinax, which I mentioned in my previous post.
Ok… I’m back! I finally got to shot again, and above all, to develop. So, this time I tested some things all at once: A beautiful Canon P rangefinder , with 39×1 screw mount, togheter with two standard Soviet lenses: the Jupiter 8 50mm f/2 and the Industar 61 52mm f/2.8. What’s more, however, I developed the film with the old Agfa Rondinax system, using Ars – Imago Fd developer.
Perhaps, as they say … I put too many irons in the fire but the results were satisfactory.
