    I also have some Fuji Superia 400 coming - only $2.25/24 shot. These cheap films aren't all bad!

    Kodak Ultramax 400 again, this time exposed at 200 to reduce grain:

    I finally got around to retaking the photo of the bicycle covered in knitting (last time I did it on Ektar but developed by mistake in B&W developer). This time with Ultramax 400:

    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    It's been a rough couple of weeks but I got back behind a camera today. Has anyone any experience with the way a battery fails in an MP? The meter was a bit strange today—flashing back and forth between one thing and another. The film, XP2, was exposed at my usual ISO200, and developed in my usual regime of 1:100 Rodinal. But there were whited out negs and black ones, along with a very few decent ones. I've changed the battery in case that was the problem and I'll try again tomorrow, weather permitting.

    Sorry Chris, can't help with your MP and meter query.

    Nice shots though.

    Question. XP2, it's a " develop in colour chemistry " film correct? How come it works in Rodinal? Your results certainly look like it does.

    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    You can develop C-41 films in B&W chemicals, even the colour films. Of course they will not develop as colour images, but as B&W. Almost anything will work, but some are better than others. Somewhere above are some Ektar 100 that I did by error in TMax developer. (Here)
    Using 1:100 Rodinal for an hour's semistand (3 inversions at start, and three at 30 minutes) gives an almost grain-free result with XP2 exposed at 200. Plus it's much cheaper than using my C-41 chemicals! I've also done XP2 in Diafine, but it is a little more grainy than the Rodinal. Easily dealt with with the Luminance noise slider in LR if it offends.
    Frankly, the reason I do it is to reduce grain—and I know many will reply with all the gory details of their undying love for nice big coarse grain. Photographically, I grew up with cheap equipment with small aperture lenses, requiring fast films such as HP3. So my pictures were generally underexposed and very grainy. The desire to avoid that has stayed with me.

    Google it first - times vary compared to silver films. The Massive Development Chart lists several B&W developers to use with XP2 as well.

    Ok, gotta move this bad boy back near the top. All shot with an M6 and either a 50/1.4 pre-asph 'lux or ancient Nikkor 105/2.5 (LTM). Film was Portra 400 or 160VC. Scanned with the Nikon Coolscan 9000 on the medium format carrier with glass top because I haven't yet replaced the lost 35mm carrier.

    The water polo player was not modeling; I don't even think he knows I took the shot. The "impressionistic" swimming photo is what happens when you try to shoot sports in the early evening with a slow shutter speed and slow film. I actually like it.

    Thank you in advance for the likes.

    After a few weeks of medium format, I took up the M7 today and finished off the Fuji Superia in it. Firstly some trees:





    and my son is home for the holidays, Cron 90 @ 1/12 (!), converted to B&W in LR:



    This Superia always gets drying marks when other films don't. Grrr!

    First try with Acros 100 in the monobath (M7, Lux 35FLE):





    I had a problem with surge marks again, hence the skies being lightened to hide the stripes. Tomorrow I'll try the official method with no agitation whatsoever.

    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    Hi Chris,

    I've shot thousands of frames of Acros, in 35mm, 120, and 4x5 sheet. It's the only b&w film I shoot.

    Never had a problem with surge marks on any of them.

    All were developed in Rodinal 1:50 with extremely gentle and infrequent agitation.

    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    The surge marks are a function of using a monobath, which is extremely prone to producing a stripe across the film from each and every sprocket hole. The only way I have got around it is to use a Rondinax or Rondix tank, so the film is oriented differently and the solution flows along the film.

    Hi Chris,

    The easy way around it is to not use a monobath.

    You had already mentioned using Rodinal, so I wanted to encourage that with Acros.

    Leica M4-2 + Color Skopar 50mm f/2.5
    Rollei-Agfa Superpan 200

    I processed this in a Rondix 35, using HC-110 1:49 from concentrate, about 8 minutes at 70°F. Seems a little bit underprocessed to my eye; it's the first roll I've done in the Rondix and I probably need to adjust developing time a little bit compared to the Rondinax. The Leica M4-2 does better with Superpan 200 than the Nikon F6 in terms of the film transport ... all frames are evenly spaced out of the Leica, not so with the Nikon. Of course, the exposures with the F6 are more consistent ... I was half the time guesstimating and half the time using the Leicameter with the M4-2. :-)

    enjoy,

    You have to wind the crank back and forth rather faster with the Rondix than you would turn the wheel on a Rondinax. About 15 seconds to go from one end to the other. Otherwise I use standard times and temperatures.

    That's probably the issue. I was cranking at about one turn per second ... I see in the instruction manual they recommend the initial crank in at about half that speed, then going to 1 to 1.5 turns per second for the rest of the processing. I'll set up a metronome or some such app to give me a beat so I can do it consistently. :-)

    Very nice, Chris.

    The tonality looks quite good.

    How's the grain? It looks quite well-controlled, but hard to tell on the 'puter image.

    - Leigh
    It is claimed that Tri-X should be rated at 1600 in Diafine, but it becomes very obvious that grain increases along with the degree of underexposure. Over the years I have gone down to 1200, then 1000 and now 800. The negatives are denser (which may not be an advantage for scanning) but there is less grain. The indoor shot of Dan was probably underexposed by a stop, and is much more grainy than the outdoor ones. I was also wanting to try out the V850, bought to allow full scans of 10x8 negatives (the 4870 couldn't do the whole frame), and it might also have contributed something to the grain, but surely not much as the properly exposed shots have very little.

    BTW, Cindy, I see I have posted these photos in the wrong thread - if you wanted to move them to the 'Something Other Than...' thread It's fine with me.

    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    I wanted to experiment this evening with a different way of scanning colour negatives. I watched a video about making Vuescan preview a bit of film base to lock the exposure and colour of the orange mask, then making a raw scan of the desired frame, import into LR, use ColorPerfect to set the colours right in PS, save and then go back to LR and adjust. This happens to be the first negative in my current 35mm binder and I do believe the colours are better than when I first processed this last fall.

    Now didn't you say that you developed everything in HC-110, 1+49 for 8 minutes? It turns out you really can!

    An old motorcycle shop, closed down when they lost their franchises for not modernising. Now mostly empty, but with an old Kodak sign on a shelf. Taken through the shop window (MP, 35FLE, Plus-X):
