Pouring a pint

Captured with my Minolta Himatic 9 on Ultrafine Extreme 400 shot at 800 and developed with Diafine.

Without a doubt, the Minolta Himatic 9 is my favorite of the Japanese rangefinders I own. I find the controls and handling to be excellent, the feel is great, the size and weight strike a nice balance, and the optics are excellent. As can be seen in this photo, shooting into a strongly back-lit scene will produce some lens flare, but that was precisely what I was looking for in this case.

Diafine controls the scene dynamic range nicely, assuring that there is plenty of detail in the shadows and highlights to work with. After scanning on an Epson V550 I processed the TIFF file in Darktable, making tone adjustments and sharpness.

Love the looks I can achieve with vintage lenses on micro 4/3 cameras.

This image was made with a Vivitar 75-210 f3.5 at 210 mm wide open on the Olympus OMD E-M1 (Mk 1)
