Fantastic to see the new photos, especially the longer exposures.
Indonesia seems a beautiful place.
Glad you got to ride around some of it, even if it wasn't with the RTW bike!

Margus, once again you demonstrate your mastery of that Sigma. I may have missed if you mentioned the camera you used, but your latest pics have 'the look', and what a great look. The Foveon is the closest digital thing to slide film I have seen, with the bumped saturations and all. Which is nothing without your stunning compositions, every single one.

I recently came into an old MF film folding rangefinder and am really excited about the idea of using it for moto touring, since it so compact. I think, if you guys managed to cart your MF rig all around the world, surely I can find space for this thing on short outings.

Beautiful work, inspiring. Thanks again.

Ahh, some analog talk I've been missing...

Cheers, Foveon X3 is a nice thing indeed, but like everything it's got a lots of minuses as well.

What folder did you got? Fuji, Bessa? Or any older Kodak, Mamiya, Zeiss?

Since I need a backup for the Pentax 67 that also can be a good hiking camera that the lardy tank P67 isn't so good at the lighweight folder thought has always been with me as well. The folders are compact and lightweight in comparison with a similar sensored SLR or even the "solid-body" rangefinder, but also can be fragile. I had a soviet 6x9 Moskva 5 (it's a copy of Zeiss Super Ikonta) with me during our Iran trip in 2005 and I managed to damage the focusing optics which is very fragile on this camera - the design is from 1930s. I only got couple of pics out of it till it was broken. While my 30+ years old Pentax 67 has been like a tank for over 200 000km of motorcycle travels it's been through: completely worn, dented, abused, fallen down, bolts coming off and it's also rusting, but it still shoots! I'll probably take it with me into my own grave.

But from the harsh life it has seen I can't trust it all the way now mechanically when going on a longer trip.

So I'm looking more of a "one-piece" folders that have light meters built-in, so you only need to take the camera if going hiking or lightweight offroad trips to shoot film or as a backup if my trusty P67 workhorse decides to call it a day. I once had a Plaubel Makina 67 to try - it's probably the best travel medium format RF ever made IMHO and I'd kill for this camera, just stunningly compact yet it's a decent 6x7 frame that it takes, just amazing sensor-size/camera-size ratio. It's now a true cult camera for obvious reasons and sells for silly price (relatively speaking, although it's well worth it! i.e. like many cult analog synthesizers sold today) so it's off the menu though.

And there's the new Fuji 670 (in Europe known as Bessa III) that is still in production and you can even buy brand new, but s/h prices are coming down to sensible levels, so in couple of years maybe it's a contender as well. Have to wait a little I guess.

A decent folder definitely seems like a good way to go on travels to shoot different and with character: film.

Indonesia in Analog

Our (these days) rare analog talk from the previous page reminded I should post some scans from black & white infrared film - shot with a 30+ years old Pentax 67 camera.




Waterfall.















Indonesian landscape in infrared - we started to trek through it.















Sekumpul waterfall.















One of many waterfalls in the same area from below - it took a lot of work to trek there through the steep mountanous thick jungle with many rivercrossings.
