CMS x 12!

A few frames of my favorite film shot at 12mm

I'll attempt to forgo most of my usual unhinged ravings about what a wonderful film Adox CMS 20II is. Suffice it to say that I was saving my last roll to test with the Voigtlander 12mm for after I'd already shot a few of my other favorites.

Even though the compositions are my usual mundanities, CMS just has a look about it that I don't see in any other B&W film. That's it, that was the extent of the unhinged raving that I allowed myself. Not too bad eh?

This roll was shot with the now usual suspects, my 1949 Leica Ic and the Voigtlander 12mm at ISO 25. I really wanted to try CMS with MQ-19 but to be honest, I didn't have the guts to do it with this roll. I still plan to try the MQ-19/CMS combo soon, but I think I'll wait until I have a handful or more rolls of CMS sitting in th fridge. These shots were developed in the also usual Adotech IV.
