Hi I just acquired an Canon prima zoom 90u. The battery is shot and it's a film camera. I don't want to spend alot on film. Does anyone have any suggestions where to start? I was thinking ebay. This would only be occasionally and for fun. I cheap way to get into film.
Thanks in advance
I'm waiting for the inflatable Darkroom/Bounce House combo.
It's actually pretty neat.
This film is a fairly new one out of China, with the early story on Emulsive.org written in 2019. It sounds like some of the earliest shipments outside of China had some QC issues, but I grabbed one last year from Blue Moon Camera out of pure curiosity. Shot inside the little Petri Color 35 and...
A thread for photos from the rare little scale-focus Petri Color 35, which came out in the late '60s and is very similar in size and shape to the Rollei 35. A heavy and mostly squared chunk of metal, with focus scale not on the lens, but inside the viewfinder, and a 40mm f2.8 lens.
Anyone have strong thoughts or opinions on the best AF Film Pentax?
I know they are rightly famous for the K1000 & other MF film-bodies, but they seem to have really suffered when Nikon/Canon started to slay in the AF film market-place (ditto Oly who seem to have been destroyed in the AF film...
I just developed only the second roll of Fomapan 200 that I've shot, and I find it a very different film. Unique, and kind of hard to wrap my head around. It's well spoken of, and often out of stock, pointing to either higher demand, or more difficulty in manufacturing than Foma 100 and 400. I...
I thought I'd share a not-quite-the-whole-roll this time. It was a rainy day and I was in the heavily shadowed areas around Pike Place Market much of the time, so I shot this HP5 at 1600, fully expecting the grainy results. Of course there are ways to mitigate the grain, but I didn't have them...
This is not my area of expertise but was there ever a compact film camera with a lens that has an f/stop larger than f/2.8?
They mostly seem to be f/5.6 or even smaller. I know the Ricoh GR compacts were f/2.8 and they were a premium compact back then. Is that as large as it gets?
Wanted to put this out there. Sharing images from the Fuji SQ20.
Share the digital files as well as scans of the prints coming from it.
I’ll start. Here are 2 prints from the SQ20. Images were taken with the SQ20 camera.
I‘ve been looking at the film sims I stored on my D300 a while back and been playing around with the settings in Kodak Portra 160 NC. I’m getting to like it’s cooler look and will consider using it more often on those subjects I think will benefit. It doesn’t suit all subjects so I’ll need to...
I actually thought the Nikon F6 was discontinued a few years ago but it appears it happened a few months back.
17 Years is a pretty good run for a camera. I didn't realise it was originally released in 2004 - that seems like yesterday!
Edit - looks like this was mentioned back in Nov - Nikon -...
Anyone use a Macro Bellows for slide or negative imaging ?
I've seen a good deal on a Olympus Macro Bellows with Slide Copy attachment - like this - Slide Copier – Olympus OM macrophoto group
I'll use it with a micro-four-thirds camera and OM mount 50mm f3.5 Zuiko Macro lens. But - reading...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
Working with a simulation with the classic negative as a base. Fuji Superia Xtra 400!!
Got this one from FujiXWeekly.com.
This is for X-Trans IV and newer. All these are from the X100V.
Please share your images and recipes!
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.
This is difficult to google; what are the things that are included in film labels, other than speed?
White balance? But no online text I found summarises up these cohesively.
Fujifilm Astia 100F, what's the F stand for?
Fujifilm Pro 160C, same thing with the C.
800Z or 400H?!
Kodak 400 VC...
we are planning on having “social distancing correct” Mother’s Day gathering today.
There will be 8 of us total, meeting at my sister in laws garage. 6 foot and masks will be adhered to.
Beyond that, let’s get to the photography question!!
If you were shooting film, which stock would you use...
I guess my interest in photography was started by looking into the windows of The Western Morning News office in Plymouth where beautifully exposed and printed monochrome photographs were displayed from recent editions of the paper.
My first purchase was a Voigtlander Bessa 1 folding rollfilm...
For some reason during this shut down , stay home, what ever I have felt the need to shoot film. My eyes are getting worse so tomorrow I will take the Minolta Maxxum 7 along . I just need to get back to basics , it always makes me feel better.
Lets see those Eterna film simulation images. Share the custom recipes if you have them!
Got this one from FujiXWeekly.com.
This is for X-Trans IV and newer sensors.
FujiFilm Eterna film simulation
Film Simulation = Eterna
Sharpness = +2
Shadows = +4
Highlights = +4
Grain = Strong
While cleaning out a cabinet during this stay home stay safe period, I found this roll of unprocessed film.
I think the local CVS or Walgreens will send it out to be processed, but I read that they no longer return the negatives. Just prints and scans!
Does anyone know if this is true...
So digging out my developing kit since I have a Nikon F90x on the way, I discovered that I still have a pair of Diafine A&B jugs mixed up. They've been in my closet several years. Anyone know if it should still work? I'll probably experiment with that first roll anyway but just thought I'd put a...
So the weather is still garbage and grey, but I went out anyway. Took the Polaroid SX-70 Sonar OneStep and the Fuji XPRO2. I figured if the Polaroid was a bust, I could take the time to test out my new Agfa APX 100 film simulation I’ve been working on.
I still have one exposure yet to run...
This is a 90 minute film by Fujifilm delving into the creation process of the X-Pro 3. As well as interviews with photographers
Eric Bouvet, Patrick La Roque, Kevin Mullins, Jonas Rask, Charlene Winfred, Megan Lewis, Rommel Bundalian, Zack Arias, and Mindy Tan.
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...
Gary Oldman. I wonder why he isn't as well known as Bridges (re his photography).
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.
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...
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...
