    Film Mala Compra

    Some of the best BBQ in Florida and a very tough Mountain Bike track across the street with a boat ramp into the Intercoastal waterway on the east coast out back, near St. Augustine. Fun place to hang out. F100 28-70 3.5-4.5 HP5.

    Film The new Ektachrome beta shots

    A few lucky photographers got to beta test the new Ektachrome film, and have started to post their results on Instagram. WOW, it looks really good, the skin tones are just amazing!!!! I can't wait for the new film. and another by the same photographer...

    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 Mamiya 6 Folding Camera

    I got the negs back from Mamiya 6 Automat II folder, I used Delta 100 as the test roll. I am very pleased with the results, no light leaks, lens appears to be very sharp, the sunny16 worked fine (like a bit of highlight/shadow edit in LR). The lab however has left some horrible lines on the...

    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). I loaded up two cameras last night, the Nikon F80 with FP4 and the Canon ML35 or Super Sure Shot, I believe this was what it was called in NA, with some Kodak TMax 100...

    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 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 “Fugidigital” also announced the end of Acros in 120 and 135. I do prefer the Fomapan 100, but have just bought 5 boxes to use it over time. This is quite a unique film, so I’ll miss it and even if I prefer the alternatives, it...

    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.

    Film Showcase Agfa Precisa 200

    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...

    My XA2 bit the dust, but I kind of enjoyed the point and shoot experience, and I remembered my old Stylus Epic Zoom 80.

    Here is one of first images from this camera, I used the wide colour pack as I wanted to finish it off, I am not a fan of the colour film as much as I am of the monochrome. No flash, the chapel was not well lit, the light was coming from a stain glass window above.
