Winter on film – Retina IIIc

Some shots from a ski trip up north near the Gunflint Trail in northern Minnesota earlier this spring. These were all shot on Kodak Gold Max 400 color print film with my Kodak Retina IIIc.  Black and white conversions done in Lightroom.

Kodak Retina IIIc

Not sure 35mm film will give you enough resolution?

Below is a crop of part of the image above.  This is from 400 speed Kodak Gold Max color print film, not known for fine grain as far as I know. With a fine-grained film like Ektar 100, I imagine the results would be even more impressive. This was an Enhanced Scan by North Coast Photo, resulting in a 3339 x 5035 pixel image, or equal to greater than a 16 megapixel image. From 35mm film!  In a 55-year-old camera!! Gotta love the Retina IIIc. This old technology called film isn’t so bad after all.
