Fuji Provia 100F, 14 November 2009


Hey, look! Another Provia scan. [1] Ain’t it pretty?


Photo Information:

Camera: Hasselblad 500CM
Lens: Carl Zeiss Sonnar [2] 250mm f/5.6
Film: Fuji Provia 100F ISO 100 (120)
Metering: Minolta Spotmeter F

These are some of the flowers growing in the front yard of my Mom’s house. These are Dahlias, or so I’m told.



[1]: Even though this is color-reversal film, I can’t call these “slides,” since they aren’t mounted as such (nor would anyone attempt to do so, anyways).

[2]: In case you’re curious, these names are actually meaningful. Most German lens manufacturers (Carl Zeiss included) name their lenses after the type of construction, e.g. Tessar lenses are 4-element lenses (i.e. they have four pieces of glass). In many cases, these names remain identical regardless of the camera system for which they were designed; thus, you’ll often find Zeiss Tessar, Sonnar, Distagon, etc., lenses for different camera systems, even though the lens designs are almost entirely different.
