Thanks, Godfrey! Working with this camera is certainly a learning experience. I had some issues with this film rolling up evenly, and ended up with it curling inside the camera. It was minor in the first couple exposures, and in the image above I had enough to work with to crop it out. This next one though, it extends too much into the central region of the campsite so I published it as-is. Kind of funky, the stuff you only get with analogStunning landscape, Graham!
Ah, nice. Makes me miss my 66 GT350 that I sold back in the early 80s.From an annual "Show and Shine" car show here in Anchorage, August 2019. This is from the first roll of film I put through a Nikon F4s I had recently acquired. Finally got around to sending the film off to Dwayne's Photo for development and scanning.
Great contrast! I was curious about using the V700. Can't you convert a negative to a positive using the media tab in Epson?Great F4 shots on Provia Gary, especially the reds are spectacular (I mean the photo's and not the car, even though that's very nice as well)
Most of my film stuff is B&W, so no vibrant reds in this post.
Here's three "reflections" in Antwerp, All OM4T + Tokina 35-70/2.8, FP4+, developed in 1-shot 1:1 diluted Microphen to iso 200, scanned in negative form on an Epson V700 creating a 16 bit TIFF and then converted to a positive by the Negative Lab Pro plugin in Lightroom.

Thanks jd, and yes, you can also scan towards a positive in the Epson software however the controls aren't as precise and good as the combination of Negative Lab Pro and Lightroom. It takes much less work this way to get to the rendering as I like it. Only thing is that all the controls in lightroom work "backwards" except for contrast and clarity. However if you really missed the mark in Negative Lab Pro you can also go back to those controls as well in a fully non destructive fashion, just like lightroom it's just a series of commands and doesn't change anything to the original file.Great contrast!
