    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 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...

    Feedback Suggestion to Mods: Film Showcase Shreads mixed Up

    Just a heads-up, the "color film showcase" subforum contains a lot of B&W films! I was looking for a film stock in the B&W subforum but there are only a few threads there, and the rest of the B&W film stocks are in the color forum.

    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?

    I recently bought a Hasselblad Xpan and am in the market for a film scanner.

    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.

    Fuji Showcase Fujifilm Classic Chrome Film Simulation

    Following Andrew's Acros example, I thought I'd go ahead and start a CC thread. I took the image I posted in Andrew's Acros thread, and used the in-camera raw software to convert it to CC, bumping up the shadows to +2. Maybe not the best film simulation to try on a gloomy day.
