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...
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.
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?
Believe it or not, I saved some "Free Developing" mailers from the 1990's and I was astonished last year...
I recently bought a Hasselblad Xpan and am in the market for a film scanner. I've done a bit of searching and found that an often recommended film scanner is the Plustek OpticFilm 120 but they're a bit hard to find at the moment. I am seeing the Plustek OptciFilm 8100 still available though -...
I just got a YA2 orange filter which I'm planning on putting on my Ricoh 500G with HP5. I'm finding conflicting advice online as to whether I should change my exposure to compensate for the filter. Since the camera meters inside of the filter rings, common sense tells me it will automatically...
Lots of photos below. I took this roll of HP5+ early this year in Portland Oregon, and it took me a long time to get around to doing anything with it, since I wanted to teach myself to develop B&W myself. Which I did, going the easy route of monobath developer. Happy with how some of these shots...
I'm just starting out shooting film and I'm beyond excited.
In order to get a better understanding of what I like, I want to look at as much film photography as possible. In that connection I thought I'd ask you guys for recommendations for must-know photographers and/or any photo...
I discovered some shot rolls of b&w 35mm rolling around a drawer in the storeroom whilst doing a clean out a few weeks ago. Not having a clue what was on them, it was a bit of a gamble getting them developed but I couldn’t just throw them out knowing that I had shot at least one of them on our...
Thought this was impressive - Jamie Livingstone took 6,697 polaroid photos between 1979-1997 - https://mentalfloss.com/article/18692/he-took-polaroid-every-day-until-day-he-died
Links to a site of all scanned photos, more info on his pics & an exhibition put on by his friends in the article.
This is not going to be as long and intense as last years thread, but some might find it interesting - because this time, I did the opposite: Instead of packing my most highly rated gear, I went with two compacts, the Panasonic FZ1000 and, again, the Canon G1X III, plus my father's Olympus XA...
Put your Astia film simulation images here with any custom settings you may be using!
I just started experimenting with it a little bit this week.
Kodak Ektar 100 Film Simulation
Film Simulation = Astia
Sharpness = +1
Shadows = +3
Highlights = +1
Grain = Off
Noise Reduction = -3
No, we're not talking about a human being.
I've had a Minox GT or GT-E in my possession since I was twenty. Today, I stumbled over a hard-to-see edge and fell (I seem to only do this with a camera in hand ...). I hit the ground on knees and hands - the right hand still clutching my GT-E. While...
I just got an email saying that Australian customers are getting their kit delivered already, Europe and US just starting. @MoonMind are you a definite buyer? I wouldn’t mind hearing how someone else gets on with this before I commit!
First film back from my Pentax Auto 110. Developed and scanned to TIFF by the Silverpan lab, and some level tweaking in Lightroom by me.

An interesting article over at Wired about how the team at VSCO go about creating their film filters for their apps.
It's a short article but something that I had not really thought about before and, after reading that, I'm not sure if I...
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...
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...
April 12th is here :)
What do you currently have loaded?
What are you shooting this weekend?
N90 - Ektar 100
Minolta A5 - HP5 400
F3/T - Fuji Superia 400
I hope to have some time to snap a few frames this weekend!
Lets go! Put your Velvia film simulation images here with any custom settings you may be using!
I just started experimenting with it a little bit this week.
Film Simulation = Velvia
Sharpness = +2
Shadows = 0
Highlights = -1
Grain = Weak
Noise Reduction = -2
Dynamic Range = DR200
Color = +2...
Like the others in this series, any images taken with the Fuji cameras film simulation set to ProNeg STD.
Please share any custom settings. I pulled this one, again from FujiXWeekly website.
I did tweak a little, as you cannot bake in a custom color shift to the white balance in a custom...
Film Simulation = Provia/Standard (Agfa Optima 200 - Recipe found at FujiXWeekly)
Sharpness = 0
Shadows = +2
Highlights = -1
Grain = Weak
Noise Reduction = -3
Dynamic Range = DR100
Color = -2
White Balance = Auto, -1 Red, -1 Blue
Exposure Comp = +2/3 to +1
ISO = Auto up to 6400
Lens used =...
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...
I finally pimped the Minolta A5 out a bit this week :)
I ordered the American Flag soft shutter release and hot shoe cover from www.themoregooder.com
Great products! I love the fit and finish :)
I am looking forward to shooting this gem again with warmer weather on the horizon.
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. What do you think?
I didn't see this specifically, but thought it might be a good idea for us to share.
Since having the MONO dial on the Olympus PEN-F, I've been getting more and more into SOOC JPG processing. My usual workflow is to shoot RAW+F JPG with the "film simulation" of choice. The PEN-F gives you a...
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...
Basically a powder that you can get shipepd to you, add water and you are ready to develop your film.
Color and B&W options available, and cost is roughly $1 per roll.
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...
Show your Nikon film shots... kicking off with a selection of mine from the foreverfilm threads...
Nikon F100 + Kodak 400TX
Nikon FE + Agfa Precisa 100
Nikon F100 + expired Kodak Ultramax 400
Nikon F3 + Kodak Ektachrome 400
Nikon F3 + Fuji Velvia 100 (probably very lucky with...
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...
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?
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...
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...
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...
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...
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.
