Fortunately not. It's nice going out and limiting yourself to 36 shots which asks for better planning than a big memory card (I just go out to shoot one roll, no spare with me). Then no possibility for chimping but replaced by the excitement and first impression when the film comes from the tank and is hung to dry. And finally scanning to see how the details and sharpness look. And for sure the M2 is still a great camera and my lenses still operate very smooth, so the shooting itself is nice as well.And there is no antidote! :shocked:
Looks like the holes in the window are only big enough to pull some minced meat through :shocked:Someone could not wait... M7, 35mm Summaron f2.8, Portra 400.
Good film scanning software has a setting for each film type. I believe that's what takes care of the coloured base. I use Silverfast 8 (came with my Plustek 35mm scanner), and I'm quite happy with that.Thanks Keith, I still have some colour negatives somewhere from my old film days, never tried scanning any of them on my V700. Given the coloured base I always assumed getting the colours right would be a nightmare (like colour printing in the darkroom). You make it sound relatively easy, so I just need to try how it works and see for myself.
I use both Silverfast 8 and VueScan. When I use Silverfast for colornegs, I try different colorfilm settings and try to get the most neutral colors from start because correcting crossed color curves in post is almost impossible. This means that for Kodak colornegs I play around with the different Kodak profiles until the colors are mostly neutral and I don't do any color tweaking at this stage other than selecting different color profiles and watching neutral gray. However, I strongly recommend trying different film types in Negafix AND trying out the different basic options before starting a scan of the whole film. That's pretty much a good starting point for the film being scanned and after testing I stick to that.Good film scanning software has a setting for each film type.
