    No artistic merit being claimed for these at all, just my second try with C-41 home developing. This time I made up fresh chemicals from a Unicolor press kit and it seems to have worked a bit better. Bessa III, Ektar 100, Imacon 848.

    These look great! They are so much better than your first attempt with the other scanner.

    Thought this was appropriate here as well.

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

    It was a friend's birthday party yesterday. I brought along the Polaroid 350 Land Camera loaded with a pack of Fuji FP-100c film and recorded the event as best I could.


    Click on photo above to see the gallery of ten photos.

    The old Polaroid became the center of attention for a subgroup of the partygoers ... It made a great batch of ten photos! Wish I'd had another film pack with me.

    I captured the photos to digital using the Olympus E-M1 with copy stand, M-E 45/2.8 macro lens, and a lightbox arrangement. The problem is I made a big error and left the ISO on Auto, so all the photos in the set are at ISO 3200-6400. And they're not bad quality at all! I'll re-capture them another time...

    I'm excited about a new arrival today:



    This feels like a real camera! I hope to find a Duracell 28L and have some film developed this weekend.

    It's trickier to use than I expected. I haven't a hope of focusing it without the magnifier and glasses on, and then there's the whole keeping it upright issue. I can see I need lots of practice.

    Stitched panos the old-fashion way. Wista VX, 135mm lens, Rollei 6x6 roll-film back. Two consecutive images on one strip of film using the shift on the view camera.

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

    Impossible Project has made available a new emulsion, the Cyanographic 600. This film records and processes an image as an all monochrome, cyan-based rendering. I bought a few packs to experiment with.

    First attempts were with my Polaroid One600 camera. I got a couple of interesting exposures but this camera is permanently flash-on and has no adjustability.

    So I fitted a pack into my SX-70 yesterday. I've got the ND filter to allow me to use 600 film packs in this camera. However, I discovered that the best exposures were obtained by leaving the filter off and cranking the light/dark control all the way to the darken side of the range. With the SX-70, I can adjust focus, lighten the image, put the camera on a tripod, and shoot sans flash ... perfect.

    No time to scan any photos just at the moment, but I captured this example with The Impossible Project app on my iPad mini:


    I like the delicacy of the tones and the cyan rendering. I think I'll order another six pack of Cyanographic 600 while they still have it. :-)

    From my recent roll... Not sure what the dark vertical line is (about 1/3 from the left), it's visible in some shots then disappears from some on the same roll.

    I see the vertical band most in this exposure. There are other vertical bands in it too. I applied some tweaked curves to bring them out for illustration:



    Applying the same curves to the photo of your boy shows nothing like this.
    I wonder if it's a scanner artifact ... examine the negatives carefully!

    Hi Godfrey, thanks for checking, but I do see them on the negatives. If I recall, I saw a few shots with them in the previous rolls too. Do you think if could be some sort of light leak? I get a sense that I only see them in out door bright sun shots, so maybe it's caused by advancing film in bright light without lens cover?

    Well, if it was light striking the film, it would be dark streaks on the negs and bright streaks in the print. So I doubt it's due to a light leak.

    Check your film again ... Do the streaks roll through several adjacent frames? on one roll only or on both? The film moves vertically through the film holder in the SL66, the shutter curtains move vertically too ... if it were unevenness in the shutter operation, the bands would be horizonal on the negative, at ninety degress to the direction of the shutter movement, not vertical bands.

    The most likely cause is uneven processing in a roller processing machine. Unevenly wetted transport rollers tend to cause bands in the direction that the film is being transported through the processor. (Dip and dunk machines can also cause banding along the film but it's very very rare.) Transport rollers that are out of round or have grit in them lay periodic light or dark spots or bands across the film as it moves though the machine.

    (I worked for a photofinisher for a couple of years in the early 1980s. All of these problems surface from time to time as processing machines age and wear takes its toll... !)

    It appears through adjacent frames, though not the entire roll. I think I will try another processing place next time. I do have a stainless tank with some 120 holders... :P That'll be adventures for later.

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

    Acquired the seemingly rather rare self-timer accessory for the SX-70, and also bought an Impossible Project electronic flash to replace the flashbar. Also ordered a couple of the new IP 600 B&W. So I decided to test it in the SX-70 ... The flash has a low power setting for use with 600 film in the SX-70:


    That's with the exposure control on the neutral setting. I did an ambient light test and found that setting the exposure control all the way to Darken produces proper exposure too.

    I like this new IP 600 B&W film. It has a different feel from the older Silver Shade Cool and Plus films.

    chrism,

    these portraits are slightly over the line of uncomfortably close to my eye. just a hair too much foreshortening distortion for my tastes.

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

    Yes, I know what you mean. Another issue for me is the DOF with the Rolleinar on is so thin - leading to some obvious problems with a couple of the later ones. I shall probably leave it off in future, but having got one I felt obliged to try it out!

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

    Thank you, Jorgen

    Good question. They were all taken with a Nikon D700; the "straight" ones with the 24-70mm lens, the "blurry" ones with a Carl Zeiss Jena 120mm (if I remember correctly) and a tilt adapter.
    The post was mainly done with Color Efex 3. Unfortunately, I can't install it anymore since Google took over NIK, but I would guess I added some contrast with the "pro contrast" filter, and used one of the film simulations with very large grain.
    On top of that I added a fill layer with patter that looks a bit like dried mud. I changed its color to blue for the photos that have more of a blue look, and left it brownish for the others. Opacity at around 10%, and masking the layer with a soft brush to make it look slightly different for each photo.
    Then some saturation adjustments and that was pretty much it.

    Hope that helps,
    Martin

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

    I seem to be increasing the speed with which I acquire old film bodies and try them out. You never know how long you have left, and the issue is growing more acute for some of us. An old Hassie 500c/Planar 2.8 and 45 prism are winging their way to Nova Scotia. I'm a complete Hasselblad virgin, but I have downloaded the manual, and watched all the Youtube videos on loading it. Any insider tips for me before I make a fool of myself again?
