My first test with my new Aaton XTR Pro shooting an old roll of Kodak Tri-x.

I only had two objectives with this:

1) Make sure the camera works...and that I know how to work it.
2) Make sure that I can expose properly.

Based on that I'm happy to say 2 out of 2 ain't bad.

I only had 85 feet of film, which is about 2 1/2 minutes shooting time. I decided to shoot something that I could at least post if it turned out halfway decent. I shot this verse with my boy, Tragic Hero, which only gave us two takes & no mistakes lol. I was hoping to have a little more light, but I was still able to overexpose by 2/3rd of a stop which means I was shooting wide open on the Canon 8-64 lens at 2.8. Even at that aperture the lens is still really sharp.

The film stock is more dirty and scratched than normal because I had to move the film off the 100' daylight spool and onto a 2" core, then backwards onto another 2" core in the changing bag lol. Needless to say, the film got manhandled a decent amount.
