Roll 6 – Franka Solida Record – Old Tmax 400 – Industrial & Abandoned

Roll 6 is a very old roll of TMax 400 used in this Franka Solida Record camera that was given to me by my Dutch teacher.  This was his family camera until digital took it’s place. I also used an old hand-held light meter when shooting with this, which I always enjoy doing!  The camera worked perfectly and was alot of fun to use.  The paper attached to it reminds me of where and when I got the camera and anything funky about it, I do this to all of my cameras.

  1. Oh man, the cheapest of the Solidas!
    I love Franka cameras. Never used one, but I love how they look..

    The 35mm folders are wonderful (in looks)..
    My wife loves all those folders…

    • I was abit surprised myself. The film was very outdated and not kept frozen…in fact, from the looks of the box that it was in from a flea market, it had been in a cellar or attic for a long time.

  2. The first shot with the big industrial tanks is striking, I even like the flare or light leak above. Perhaps it ties into the light post with the parabolic like curves. (?) Maybe I like it because I like industrial stuff but the repetition of the cylindrical forms receding across the image carries it regardless.

  3. I LOVE the first and last ones. Not that the 2nd is bad but really, the “plastic” look of the first one and “dusty” look of the third got me. Did you do much post-processing on this set?
