Jupiter 36B

I bought a Kiev 60, first the shutter didn’t work, so I sent it back. It was repaired, but the framecounter broke and the frame spacing was all messed up. Overall a pretty sad story, yet there is a silver lining on this dark cloud. The camera came with a Jupiter 36B 250mm f3.5 lens.

1/250 is not enough. Shanghai GP3 in HC-110 1+50 for 20min at 20C.

The junior assistant and I took a short walk in the woods today. I brought my Pentacon Six, loaded with some Shanghai GP3 film and the 250mm Jupiter lens.

The conditions were not optimal, the sun was peeking in and out of the clouds, and ISO 100 film is a bit on the slow side to be shot hand held with such a long lens. But a couple of the frames turned out OK, especially if we look at the out of focus areas. The bokeh of this lens is probably the nicest of any of the lenses I have.

There’s a portrait shoot coming up in the near future, I must bring this setup.
