    I've been trying out 35mm Tri-X 400 shot at 1250 and 1600, and developed in Diafine. The results were pretty good, so I ordered some 120 size Tri-X 400, and got the Norita out of the collection case. The Norita is a no frills (just basic manual functions) medium format SLR that takes 11 6cm x 6cm frames on a roll of 120, or 23 frames on 220. It's designed like a big 35mm SLR. What is special about the camera is it's f/2 standard lens. That's a stop faster than you'll see in most other fast medium format lenses.

    film: Tri-X 400 in Diafine

    WOW! How can she sleep with all that stuff going on in that picture!
    There's cartoons, bears, snowmen. But she looks oh-so-comfy! It's such a cute photo.
