"Attached are my World Argus photos. I shot Kodak TechPan film. This
is very high definition, low grain, high contrast film. I shot some photos with a tripod to see how sharp the Cintar really
When I looked at the scans of the negs I was at first disappointed with
the detail. I had some email conversations with Jaye Waas (who had the camera previously so it must have been set up correctly).
To actually compare images I pulled out an old negative shot at the same
place with the same film with a Hasselblad. At first the larger, longer focal length image looked much better but when cut
down to the same pixel size the Argus came out OK.
There was a lack of specular highlights that Jaye felt may have been
from weak developer but these negs are very strongly developed. It is probably a function of the time of year with the sun
being higher in the sky.
When in the darkroom to print the neg it looks quite sharp in the grain
focus device (no grain to see with Tech Pan). It makes a good 8x10 print 11x14 should be OK but the edges get more fuzzy.
Really pretty good for a camera that I have bought several for less than
the price of the film ($16.00)."
