Japanese Geisha girl





We were out shootin yesterday with some film and able to get good results. Some shots are with Contax 645, some with Fuji x-t2 and some with Pentax P67. Now thats a real world comparison. Can you spot the difference?
The negatives were scanned and sharpening applied. The digital files are from raw with my own LR preset.

Fuji X-T2 18-55mm at ISO5000
Preparing indoors for the shooting. This is a traditional japanese Geisha dress only to be worn on 7.7. every year.
The picture shows the advantage of the Fuji in the bunch: high ISO, low light capabilities.

The beauty of the contax 80mm lens can be seen here. Very smooth. Also easier to manually focus in my opinion.

The picture from above, close up there is a very thin depth of field with beautifull transition….and I even nailed the focus.

Pentax p67 with 105mm at f2.4 on Fuji pro400h
Just amazing the depth of the 60x70mm negative the Pentax can produce with the 105mm lens. It has a stronger look and more pop then the Contax. Not sure how this can be seen in the downsized pictures here.




Below here 2 more shots with the Fuji and the kit lens. Considered it’s the tiny and inexpensive kit lens, the fuji does well.
Also colors out of lightroom with Fuji profiles are very close to the film colors. Of course the medium format transitions are not there.
