    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...

    Pretty sure I've posted this elsewhere before but a few more videos are out from the Fix Old Cameras channel - I'm a little surprised by the plastic Minolta gears in the middle video - you could totally imagine stripping those but maybe they're sturdier than they look... More over here Fix...

    Film Showcase Ilford Delta 100

    Here are a few shots with Ilford Delta 100 taken in Sofia, Bulgaria with my Minolta XD. Starting with a couple of shots of the Museum of Sofia, formerly the city's public bathouse. Just across the street is the spot where the hot spring water that used to feed the bathhouse is still being...

    Film Showcase Ilford Delta 400

    I see a thread for this film in the Colour Film Showcase but I assume that now there is a section specifically for B&W Film I should post this here. Here are a few scenes from Sofia, Bulgaria a couple of weeks ago when the snow was falling. Shot on Delta 400 with a Minolta CD and Rokkor MD...

    Film Widelux, Noblex, Horizon - Panoramic Cameras

    After seeing Jeff Bridges shooting his Widelux I started poking around on evilbay and saw the 2 common variants of panoramic 'moving lens' cameras - the Widelux (vintage Japanese) & Noblex (German). And I also stumbled across the Russian Horizon cameras yesterday too - these often appear to be...

    Film Minolta Medium Format

    I am being given two Minolta medium format cameras by my aging brother in law. I know very little to nothing about Minolta medium format. Don't even know the models. Haven't seen him in years but he follows my photography. They didn't make many did they?

    Film Showcase Acros 100

    I think Kevin has set up this new section, so apologies if there is already a thread for Acros 100. I took my old Agfa Isolette II for a stroll around the garden, trying Acros 100 out in 120 for the first time. Developed by AG Photo Lab, scanned on a CanoScan 8800F using Vuescan, minor tweaks...

    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...

    Film Polaroid Originals OneStep2

    To get into gear with instant again before the MiNT InstantKon RF70 arrives, I took out the OneStep2 (and the Lomo'Instant Automat Glass, but that's a different thread) to try my hand on evening colours. 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...

    Film Did you know the new polaroid can be peeled apart? I didn't

    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...

    Film Salvaged some shots...

    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...

    Film Minolta Feedom Zoom 150

    I've been buying and trying compact 35mm cameras for about a year now. Never found one I really liked. They over-hyped models I found to be bulky and loud. I never dove down the Olympus Muju route due to prices, and never scored one while thrifting. About two months ago, I realized I still...

    Film Showcase Canon AF35ML or Super Sureshot

    This is a 40/1.9 lens point and shoot camera from the 80's. Here is one of the shots from the first roll I have shot with it. Film is Kodak TMax 100 and a yellow filter. Not bad I'd say for a loud 80's camera :).

    Film Finally finished a roll

    Finally finished a roll of Superia in the F100 this morning. I have the OM2n with me now to try and finish a roll of AGFA Vista200 that's half finished. I really have to thin out my projects. I still have to finish a roll of HP5 in the Minolta that's on frame 12. Good problem to have I guess...

    Film Vivitar Series 1 Zoom with Tmax 400

    This is a lens which I haven't used in many years. In the past I used it almost exclusively with Kodachrome and Agfachrome, both in ASA 64, both sadly long gone. I got an urge to get it out and try it with some fast film, and chose Tmax 400. The faster film makes it a lot easier! this lens...

    Film What camera and film combination are you using today?

    Just thought I would start a conversation on this topic, I would love to know what everyone is shooting today (or these days).

    Here's something you don't see very often. I had a 5cm Nikkor f2 Lens for the Hansa Canon for years, a lucky flea market find. A few weeks ago I got a Seiki-Canon 1938 Model S in beautiful cosmetic condition. I had been looking for a body for years, finally found one that wasn't insanely...

    Film Showcase Plustek Opticfilm 120 Scanner

    I have spent two days with this scanner, here are some early thoughts. I used both Vuescan and Silverfast with it, and I think Silverfast offers better scans, just to note I am creating linear scans, no edits made by the scanner, except extraction of the "pure" data from the neg. Linear scans...

    Film Adjustable Tripod Collar

    Does anybody make such a thing? I have found lens attachment rings with tripod connectors but I loose auto focus and metering. I have a couple older lens that need one. My Tamron 60-300 is a log. I can't imaging hanging that thing off the front of a camera without support. It's a fun older...

    Film Questions about filters and film

    What would be a good choice for a overall filter that I could use for BW photography in say a very sunny place? I like my BW pictures that I took in Tula, but felt I could have done with something to lessen the bright light a bit. It was a very sunny and open space with only wispy clouds in...

    Film Video: Kodak 3200 vs Ilford 3200

    Quite enjoyed this - two high-speed B&W films compared. I've never had much luck with high-speed film but I'm tempted to give it another crack in the right circumstances. It looks like the Kodak is definitely grittier and the Ilford has a smoother look to it. The presenter did well in some of...

    Film Some beginner random thoughts on different film (a bit long)

    I recently went on a short trip to Mexico, to a town I have visited a number of times, and this is the first time I took pictures. I never did before because I hate using a phone to take pictures and I had no camera in the past. Anyhow, I took my Minolta Dynax 5 with a 50mm lens and whole lot...

    This was in the works, after sheet film has been discontinued, now β€œFugidigital” also announced the end of Acros in 120 and 135.

    Film Finally a good day to shoot

    It has been Clear as glass skies here for ever it seems. We had soft overcast all day today. I tried to make the best of it. Got half a roll burned in my Minolta maxxum 7. What a joy to shoot. I really will keep this camera. Rest of the day was digital. Just felt good to get out and shoot finally.

    First roll through the Nikon FA... I'd forgotten it was slide film and got convinced to x-process it by the shop to save a few $$$... I should have just got it done properly as I'm not sure if the super-grainy look is due to the film, camera-exposure or processing. Will need to run some plain...

    Film Bronica S

    First roll back - it was some old Kodak Plus-X pan 125. Some shots were better than others - my focusing needs work (even using the loupe, on a sunny day its hard to nail focus) and some of the speeds might be a little off judging by the horizontal line that appears in a few shots. Some more...
