I brushed the dust off my EOS 1NHS, loaded it with Ilford Pan F and stuck the Tamron 45mm f/1.8 SP on to see how it worked on the 1997 era camera. Worked perfect ! Says a lot for the sustainability of the EF mount. Two shots, one a three frame pano looking down into Little Thornwick Bay on the East coast of England, and the second a single frame looking North up the East coast and Bempton cliffs, famous for their sea birds and Puffins.
Thanks Graham ! In my case the jury is still out on 35mm B&W film against digital. I need to spend some time doing comparisons. The film can't compete in resolution and clarity but then that's not always what a picture is about !Hi Sporgon.
A couple of very evocative shots, film b&w seems to be so much more then a converted digital shot.

Would that be Agfa DiaDirect ? Probably one of the finest grained films ever. 12 ASA I think it was. It scans really well !Sure digital has film beat on so many levels, but I guess the organic nature of film is what gives it the look.
Maybe it is just nostalgia talking, dad took quite a lot of b&w slides, every so often I load a cassette and run it through the projector.
Many thanks click ! To get to this hidden cove without having to wade into the sea I had to go through this small sea arch. If you look closely you can see The Witch of Thornwick making a return clutching her baby. I hope it's not a bad omen for the future !Another very nice picture, Sporgon.
Many thanks Graham. The puffins are only small, about 30cm tall I think so they probably can't throw their weight about like the others when it comes to getting the best spots.Those Ganets are huge ! Where they are leads to a thin crevasse in the cliff, and it may have been a "blow hole" in past ages which then collapses in on itself. Apparently this is where the puffins breed.Hi Sporgon.
Lovely shots, those puffins have picked (or been forced to use) a very narrow ledge!
