First time shooting with my Spotmatic II and I am addicted. Waiting for the b&w film I ordered and see how I do with those ones. I settled with Fuji X-TRA 400 just to test how the metering is and if the camera has any light leaks. So far so good, I think.

Great set! You have every reason to be pleased. :)

I've moved this thread (slightly) from the Alternative Processes forum to the Film Discussion - simply to remind everyone that just shooting film is not an alternative photographic process. ;)

Keep shooting and posting!

Hey, awesome, I just got this exact camera and film. If mine turn out as nice as yours I'll be happy! I bought mine to use the Helios 44m-7 on, what lens did you use?

I'm very pleased with the focusing "spot" in the viewfinder, I actually prefer it over the OM2n's focusing screen.

Yes, nice pictures, Pakyooh! I love the restaurant scene with the reaching arm reflected in the window. These have lovely color, and show a nice vision. Ah, the Spotmatic....SUCH a wonderful machine it was, and is! I think the Super-Takumar m42 lenses are pretty nice. I own a few, and think they have a wonderful drawing style.

Helios is not that sharp but it also makes pleasing pictures.

Seems like the Pentax K and Spotmatics were always popular, and that the Takumars are nice sharp lenses. I like the restaurant photo too, glad you're enjoying using the camera and shooting film.
