Roll 372-376 The medieval festival

This year my vacation coincided with the annual medieval festival.

I had planned to bring a large format camera there and make some portraits. But I couldn’t find a dog sitter. Keeping an eye on the dog in a crowd with my head buried deep under the focusing cloth is impossible, so I changed my plan and packed the Pentacon Six with the massive Jupiter 36 lens, a 250mm f3.5 lens from the old USSR. Together with the prism finder it is the heaviest camera intended for handheld photography I have.

The weather was horrible, all bright, sunny and warm.  But if things were going to be bright I could just as well take advantage of it and shoot a setup that would push me into 1/500 and 1/1000 shutter speeds.

It seems the aperture automation doesn’t really sync up between the Pentacon Six and the Jupiter lens.  Considering that the lens was made for a different camera it wasn’t very surprising. But it caused me enough problems during the day that I’ll see if I can disable it in the lens and use it as a fully manual lens in the future.
