    Film Just Got my SX-70 Sonar Back From Retrospekt

    And I cannot tell you how BEYOND please I am with it. My only issue is that I should have taken pictures of it before I sent it off. Let's just say that the original black leather panels were in used condition and I was not 100% sure that the thing was exposing correctly. I opened the box and...

    Film Observations from using the Ars-Imago Lab-Box

    First, a couple of caveats: I'm still a complete beginner when it comes to developing film, so you have to take everything I say with a grain of salt at the very least. None of the issues I encountered are unrelated to my own limitations - if something's a problem with the product, it's...

    Single In Single in January (SiJ) 2021: Offshoot - Film Weekends

    Alright, as the Commissioner has ruled this acceptable, here is a bonus round, or a side quest, involving Single in January. Each weekend, shoot and develop some film. My rules are: I have to either shoot or finish off a roll over the weekend and post a scanned photo from the weekend (no photos...

    Film BW400CN Alternative Process in Rodinal semi-stand

    Last night I developed a roll of kodak bw400cn that I'd shoot between one and two years ago. It was the first roll I shoot through the little Ricoh 500G, and from the looks of things I overexposed it badly. I had sent it in to be developed at my local Fred Meyer, but apparently the tech hadn't...

    Film Fat 120 rolls

    I'm getting fat rolls with a couple of medium format cameras, i.e., after being exposed, the roll is not tightly rolled back. Consequence of this is light leaks on the last few pictures. I know this happens more on some brands, like Lomography that has a very shinny yet slippery backing, but I...

    Film Press Pan - X-Pan Alternative

    Fascinating to see what makers are creating these days. Jess Hobbs tries out a Press-Pan, a combo of a Nikon FE & Mamiya Press + lots of 3D printed bits and pieces, to create a panoramic 35mm camera similar to the X-Pan. Also links to a number of other people creating bits & pieces to support...

    Film Minolta a-7 problem

    My Minolta a7 locked up with film in it. I had to break the latch to get the film out as it would not fire or rewind or open. Are there any shops that would be able to tell me if this thing is fixable or trash. I don't mind spending a little on it if its fixable.

    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.
