Interesting Ciro-Flex photo of inside of a marble mine in Marble, CO.

http://douggrosjean.com/modules/Gallery/albums/album09/Day13_CF_F_MarbleMineInside.jpg

Taken on tripod, ambient light, EV of about 5-6. I couldn't really see to compose in the viewscreen, other than some dim shapes. Those shapes were the gear down in the bottom of the mine shaft.

Taken on a trip to CO on a motorcycle to explore ghost towns via 4WD trails this past August. Had been using my Rolleicord V, but the film advance knob vibrated off and the Ciro-Flex F was pressed into use. Turned out to be a good choice, as the tripod lug on the side allowed me to mount the CF-F sideways on the tripod, to compose with the groundglass on the LH side.

Nice shot! Which Ciroflex model and lens have you? What film?

I have several Ciro-Flex cameras. I think they're cool because my SO was photographed by her dad with one, and that's the first one I used. Then I bought some on Ebay, and used them.

That photo was taken with a Ciro-Flex F model. Fuji 400 print film, and the neg was scanned in. I don't recall the exact shutter / F-stop, only that the exposure value was about a 5 or 6, like a dim room.

After the Rolleicord's knob fell off, the rest of the trip was shot on the Ciro-Flex. So I ended up with a bunch of Ciro-Flex photos on the Net, maybe 50?

Rest are at:

They are thumbnails, click on the thumbnail to enlarge.

Original plan was to have black & white in the Ciro-Flex and color in the Rolleicord, plus two small point-and-shoot 35mm cameras in pockets in my riding suit. Mostly that worked out pretty well, as I ended up with quick snapshots of crash scenes, as soon as we'd pick ourselves up off the ground and dust off.
