    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    I don't use the Fuji GA645 Pro very much, as it seems like it's cheating to have autofocus. Unfortunately even that can be defeated by poor light and a little movement! These ones weren't too bad - on HP5+, TMax developer, Imacon 848 scans:

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    I'm still fascinated by stand development, so I put some Tri-X in a Fuji GW690 and exposed it for ISO1600. 80 minutes in 1:100 Rodinal with five inversions at the start and two at the midpoint.





    Rather less grain than using Diafine for 1600 Tri-X, but hardly smooth. I really ought to find a new battery for my lightmeter too.

    Very nice, Chris. At web size and compression it's hard to tell the Pentax from the Fuji from the M7. Which do you most enjoy shooting with?

    Thank you, John. I'd have to say the M7 not just for the sheer slickness of the build and operation, but also the sense of having actually done some work to make the image. But as my eyes get older I begin to understand the attraction of autofocus. Looking at prints, the Bessa III probably turns out the best quality of all.

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    I finally got to try XP2 @200 in a Rodinal stand development. For the record:
    Presoak 3 minutes
    6ml Rodinal in 600ml water, roughly 20șC
    Inversions for first 30 seconds
    Stand 30 minutes
    One inversion
    Stand 30 minutes
    Fix and wash as usual

    I'm very pleased with the smoothness and lack of visible grain. Even at 100% crops there's only subtle grain.




    Both Nikon F6, Nikkor 85mm @ f1.4, XP2 @ 200, Imacon 848 scans.

    I'm going to try the next one in Diafine after exposure at 200. I found some examples on the web that look just as smooth as with Rodinal.

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    It's an experiment that took 3 months to complete. My father-in-law gave me his Rollei SL66 last year and I decided to give it try, having never shot film before. Had to send the camera in for service in the middle of my first roll (mirror lock up), and only got it back about a month ago. Finally, sent the first 3 rolls in to be developed and got the negatives back today, just to find out that the cheap scanner I bought really sucks :P Oh well, here are some of the results:

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    A good film to use is Ilford XP2 - very easy to scan, almost grain free and can be developed as C41 which the local D+P can run through. Expose it at ISO 200 for best results.

    The SL66 is a fine camera capable of some wonderful images and well worth preservering with. As I write I'm scanning XP2 shot on my Rollei 6002 and the images look beautiful.

    A good scanner for MF is the Epson V700/750 flatbeds, which are not too expensive.

    Hope this helps and look forward to more from your film voyage

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    That's a good start, David. Makes your M9 workflow look so easy, doesn't it? I did not want to spring for either Epson scanner and went instead for a Canon 9000f. It seem plenty adequate for medium format and is much cheaper. I use it with Vuescan and find the combination fine for the relatively small quantity of film I shoot. There are more variables in the film workflow and any weak link compromises everything. But we've got to draw the line somewhere.

    One of the problems with the Canon scanner is that the film holder doesn't hold the film flat, and the height can't be adjusted for correct focus. You can probably improve your results by using an adjustable film holder with glass plates, like the one from Betterscan, Custom film holders for Agfa, Microtek, Canon and Epson film scanners.

    Thanks, John. It sure does. For now, I'm just enjoying the process of taking greater care before pressing the shutter button and teaching myself to be more aware of the exposure settings. I find it difficult to get the horizon near flat as I'm hand holding the camera.

    Definitely returning the scanner I bought from Costco and looking to give the Epson V600 a try. I think once I can get a decent scan from the negatives, it'll make the work seems worthwhile. My father-in-law also gave me a tall developing tank with 3 film holders, so I'll give that a try later this year :P

    Thanks, Jorgen. Some film lies flatter than others, but that looks well worth the cost.

    Good luck with your film adventure. My mother-in-law gave me her Rollei TLR, which I've been using. The ground glass has grid lines, so no problem with horizons. But I'm leaning more toward 35mm and just ordered a Leica CL to give that a try. I think 35 may better suits my interest. Having 3X more shots per roll is also appealing. I guess I'm not ready to slow down THAT much.

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    Today's XP2 was shot at ISO200 and developed in Diafine. There's a bit more grain than with the Rodinal stand, and there was certainly more work getting the scans to look right. All Nikon F6, 85mm/f1.4, and Imacon 848 scans.

















    Tomorrow I try my first C-41 development, using Ektar 100 and a Tetenal kit. Wish me luck!

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    I hate to admit it, but I had forgotten what a pain it was to remember colour balance/lighting and colour films. My Ektar 100 proved quite nice in pure daylight, but under fluorescent lighting many of them are unusable. The Tetenal kit is 2-3 years old, so rather than the recommended 3:15 in the developer I stretched it to 3:30. I do have a fresh Unicolor press kit coming so it might go a bit better next time.

    Plus-X in Rodinal 1:50. Film out of date 25 years ago. Film got jammed in camera . Mamiya 645 with 135mm back. Film holder opened four times in living-room light to find out how to get it out from insert.

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    I don't really like Delta 100... I think... and sometimes, I wonder why I bother with manual focus cameras. I seem to be constantly out of focus. But now and then, when the weather is good and my mood is right, I manage to hit the proper distance on that black, round think that says "Zeiss" on the front

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    So I finally got a decent scanner, the Epson V600.... boy, what a difference! Sorry, to repost some images, this is what they should have looked like!







    BTW, what dpi do you guys scan at? I started from 4800dpi and finally settled at 1200dpi for a reasonable scan time and file size without noticeable quality loss.

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    I mostly scan 35mm at 3200 and MF at 2400 dpi, but it depends on the film and on the usage. With flatbed scanners, anything beyond 3200 dpi won't give more details, only larger files. Even the best film scanners won't give much beyond 4000 dpi.

    I was meandering around this site looking for angles when these two girls appeared from nowhere. I've no idea who they where or why they were dressed as they where. I asked for a few shots, they posed and ran off as quickly as they came. Strange day.

    Hi Ray,

    Thank you so much, I still have to figure out what is the best way to attach the images to the thread, because the way I did, they are missing the crispy sharpness the original pictures have. Which is for example excellent in your above Black and White shots.
    (I am going to open a different thread on this workflow topic,)

    Best Regards,
    Helge

    The square photo was taken with a $5 garage sale find...
    NYC's bravest on 35mm film...

    NYC is a great place to study photography. These photos were all taken in and around NYC when I was still a student of the arts.
