Pentax SF-1

Postby drmoss_ca » Sun Jul 20, 2014 10:27 am

This was the first autofocus SLR made by Pentax. My wife bought it in 1987 and it is still going. I like it a lot and have bought two back up bodies in working order for about $20 each (!) There are some earlier photos with it in the stand development thread. I have read that Plus-X exposed at an EI of 400 and developed in Diafine gives extraordinarily good results. I have around 100 rolls in the freezer so I thought I would try it out:

A shame that Plus-X was discontinued a couple of years ago - it really does work beautifully with Diafine.

I like the lantern the best for composition, but the others are wonderful people shots as always.
