    Film Safelight query

    I've seen a safelight for sale and I'm interested in it for a lab. I've seen these in use in tv shows & films but the description on Wikipedia is a little vague - references their use in the development process but it seems to focus a little more on developing prints. Can these be used at all...

    Film Another Widelux photographer who also happens to be a Hollywood actor.

    Gary Oldman. I wonder why he isn't as well known as Bridges (re his photography). https://www.amateurphotographer.co.uk/latest/photo-news/movie-star-gary-oldman-gets-behind-lens-first-uk-exhibition-75240

    Film Showcase Lomography Tiger 200 (110 format)

    Latest scans back from Silverpan (and edited in Luminar 3). I think the Orca B&W is a nicer film, plus the little Auto 110 shoots 200 at 100 so they get a bit overexposed, and there isn’t the latitude to correct completely. That said, given the size of the camera these aren’t too bad.

    Film Cheap B&W film?

    Most of y'all know I bought two film cameras and am shooting film for the first time. I've shot 8 rolls so far. With this forum's help I purchased a film scanner. And as of last week, I finally found a place in another state where I can send the film to be developed. I hope to receive...

    Film Buying a Nikon SP

    Been struggling to buy a Nikon SP. Impossible to find locally and the ones I’ve been seeing on eBay either have issues or are way to expensive. Is there any other alternative in Europe, knowing that I’m based in Portugal? It is easier to be on the Leica team :) but I really like my S2 and...

    Film Clark Labs no longer processes film

    Remember when you used to get all these mailers in the Sunday papers and you'd mail your film off to be processed in a thick paper mailer? And then you'd watch the mailbox for your prints? Believe it or not, I saved some "Free Developing" mailers from the 1990's and I was astonished last year...

    Film Film scanner advice

    I recently bought a Hasselblad Xpan and am in the market for a film scanner. I've done a bit of searching and found that an often recommended film scanner is the Plustek OpticFilm 120 but they're a bit hard to find at the moment. I am seeing the Plustek OptciFilm 8100 still available though -...

    Film Color Filter for Mono Film Question

    I just got a YA2 orange filter which I'm planning on putting on my Ricoh 500G with HP5. I'm finding conflicting advice online as to whether I should change my exposure to compensate for the filter. Since the camera meters inside of the filter rings, common sense tells me it will automatically...

    Film Ricoh 500G with HP5+ Developed w/DF96 Monobath

    Lots of photos below. I took this roll of HP5+ early this year in Portland Oregon, and it took me a long time to get around to doing anything with it, since I wanted to teach myself to develop B&W myself. Which I did, going the easy route of monobath developer. Happy with how some of these shots...

    Hey there! I'm just starting out shooting film and I'm beyond excited. In order to get a better understanding of what I like, I want to look at as much film photography as possible. In that connection I thought I'd ask you guys for recommendations for must-know photographers and/or any photo...

    I discovered some shot rolls of b&w 35mm rolling around a drawer in the storeroom whilst doing a clean out a few weeks ago. Not having a clue what was on them, it was a bit of a gamble getting them developed but I couldn’t just throw them out knowing that I had shot at least one of them on our...

    No, we're not talking about a human being. I've had a Minox GT or GT-E in my possession since I was twenty. Today, I stumbled over a hard-to-see edge and fell (I seem to only do this with a camera in hand ...). I hit the ground on knees and hands - the right hand still clutching my GT-E. While...

    Film But Really, Which Film Rangefinder Should I Try?

    Hey folks, I have been hankering after a rangefinder for a long time. I have a couple of functioning film SLRs, since that type of camera seems to be overwhelmingly predominant in all thrift stores, antique shops and even on the auction sites, but I don't like the relative clunkiness and...

    Film Minimalist Monobath Development Workflow?

    Hey, I have zero experience developing film, but it has gotten to the point where no one remotely close to my rural area develops on site, and sending film off to higher quality development houses is cost prohibitive. I would still like to shoot some film, though, and I'm thinking about trying...

    Film MiNT InstantKon RF70 (mostly images)

    Well, to say that this camera is interesting is an understatement. It's a modern take on a classic folder, and it shoots modern instant film (Fujifilm's Instax Wide films, to be exact). It sports full manual control as well as aperture priority with (moderate) exposure correction. It's a true...

I had been in two minds about the Polaroid Originals latest colour film, but quite fond of...

    Film Showcase Kono! Kolorit 400T

    A bit of an oddity, this one. It’s a tungsten balanced film so it has a blueish cool look when shot outside. Actually I find it rather appealing. It’s rubbish for cloudy conditions though, the shots come out muddy and flat. Give it some sunshine and it’s nice. All shot with an Olympus XA2...

    I learnt something new today, quite exciting actually, and then I tried it this evening. I am sure many people know about this, but the new Polaroid film (or the old impossible) can also be peeled apart, not quite like real peel apart film, but it will peel apart to a positive emulsion layer...

    I had a roll of Kentmere 100 in a camera with a few shots, I then naively rewound the roll and put into the Olympus MjuII, thought I had wound on there to the first available frame. Well, it obviously didn't work! The lab processed it but wrote a note that all of the frames were overlapped. I...
