    Your welcome. Hope it helped.

    I hear you about scanning color negs. My experience as well. Slides are much more straight forward.

    Fly Ranch Geyser is located in the Black Rock Desert in northern Nevada. The geyser was accidentally started by a drilling crew back in the 1920's, it runs 24/7 (AFAIK), the mounds are mineral deposits that have built up over the years. When I took this photo I could feel the heat and hear the roar of the geyser. It was late sunset with the moon raising (upper left).

    Zeiss 135/3.5 planar. Sadly slightly back-focused thanks to my focus/recompose technique. I've adjusted the rangefinder to slightly front focus before recomposing so hopefully better focused shots in my future

    Hi Pramote, Thanks once again for the kind words. I wasn't sure if people where getting bored with them, so I will carry on. On an aside, I have been trying to get the B&W "look" converting my digital files and I am making progress, I think, but film does have a certain look which is most appealing on this type of subject. I will post my latest attempt in the "fun with nikon thread" shortly and any comments would be most welcome.

    Re: More Fun with Large Format Film Images!

    finally i bought SA 72mm XL f/5.6, just received it yesterday, i placed the order about 3 weeks ago, and they told me it will take around 6-8 weeks to be in stock and shipped, to my surprise it turned out to be in stock within 1 week and then shipped immediately, and took about another 1 week to show off in my country, and as i said, yesterday i got that gem/beauty.

    I hope i can use it a lot and shoot more with it, don't know which next lens to get [i have only 3 lenses, 2 new and one old used].

    Nice images on this thread, i can't wait to add something in the future i hope.

    Hi Tareq, Look forward to seeing your contribution to the thread. I wouldn't get too hung up on lens selection, I found a wide angle (90mm) and standard-ish (180/203mm) did all I required. Anyway here's another, 90mm FP4, HC 110.

    Alan great contrast and composition with the reflections in that last one.

    I finally got around to trying some wet scanning today. Since I cannot get the scanning fluids in Aus I used Glycerin. It's a good consistency and easy to clean up. A bit of a pain with the bubbles though.

    Left the film heading in the image since I like the way it artifically frames the scene, hope that doesn't offend anyone.

    Daniel, Thanks for the kind words.
    Do you mind me asking which scanner and film holder you are using? I am having a tough time getting my scans sharp due to the film holder (Epson 4870 + std. holder). It looks like yours is nice and sharp and holding the contrast as you would expect from slide film. Your last 2 posts are excellent, I especially like the portrait, wonderful "look" and tones.

    Thanks Alan, very nice shot you posted, love the contrast and tones.

    Well, in fact i was circling between 90mm and 72[or ultra wide equivalent such as 65/75...] to get, but i found that lens new on one site cheaper than another big names sites, say $2000 which is cheaper about $100-200, that was no brainier, sure i put 90mm as a must to get lens, that may be next one or something longer such as 180/210/240...

    I ordered a lens board as i forgot that the lens doesn't come with one, i have only 1 lens board of Copal 0 to use with Rody 150mm and didn't want to take it out of it, but i ordered also a Recessed lens board as this may not allow room on my 4x5, in all cases i can wait until using it.

    Now i am confused about which film i should test or use this lens with, B&W or Color and which?!!!

    Hi Alan, I'm using and Epson V700 and the better scanning holders. That said, only the most recent shot is with the better scanning holder, everything else is the stock standard epson holder. I also just use the Epsonscan software.

    I bought that lens New from mpex.com, it is out of stock, they told me it will take about 6-8 weeks to be in stock after i order it, but i was very lucky that they took almost 1 week to be in stock and shipped it immediately, and no center filter yet, i will order this sooner or later.

    I am planning to buy SA 90mm XL from them too, they give very good reasonable price cheaper than others brand New, but that one is not listed on their site, funny they listed 72mm and not 90mm.

    I also use Epson V750, i have betterscanning but i still using the default one from Epson, i want to go Wet mounting route with the scanner, and i agree, i only use EpsonScan software even i have VueScan and SilverFast.

    Daniel, Tareq, Thanks for the info. I wonder if the newer holders on the V750 are better at holding the negs flat? Unfortunately all my negs have taken on a curl over the years and do not lie flat. I may try one of the better scan holders with my 4870 or possibly look to get a V750. I also use the Epson software and find it fine.

    As you said, that depends on how to keep your film flat and the distance placed on your scanner, i am not expert in scanners, but i manage to have my film flat, i am talking about 120 rolls, about 4x5 sheets they are almost very flat even if you want them to curl, but i recommend to go with betterscanning holder, they designed it to keep the film flat to scanner plane for better results, give it a try.

    Very nice composition and scan.
    Which lens/aperture is this?
    I want to get a 4x5 film scanner with dust control software.
    Haven't looked at them in years. Which would you recommend?
    I had a Microtek with no dust control software. It had a great Kodak CCD.
    I want to start scanning my 4x5s from 1979 thru current.
    Take care,
    Mike

    Hi Mike, thanks for the comment. All my 4x5 (5x4) shots where done with FP4 and HC110. These are from a few years ago... 80s & early 90s. I have gotten the bug after scanning a few and decided to let them see the light of day! (there are quite a few to get through, so we may be some time).

    What kind of scanner are you using? Does it have ICE or some kind of dust control? I need recommendations.

    Fog and frost at 'Robin Hood's Stride' in the Peak District National Park.

    This is a terrific shot, love it!

    Did you use any movements here? and which Shen Hao 4x5 model is this? Any filters used?

    Thank you.

    It is the Shen Hao TZ45 IIA. No movements were used because the light was changing so fast while I was setting up, and there wasn't anything in the picture that screamed 'converging verticals', so I just made sure I got an exposure. I used an orange filter to add some contrast to the foggy background, but I didn't want to spoil the diffused light, so it was a risk but it worked OK I think.

    Re: More Fun with Large Format Film Images!

    What kind of scanner are you using? Does it have ICE or some kind of dust control? I need recommendations.
    Thanks,
    Hi Mike, No magic bullet I'm afraid, just an old Epson 4870 with standard holders and epson software. Results are variable for sharpness but at this resolution (screen) it's not much of a problem. Some come out quite good and will stand an A3 print. As for ICE, not sure but I thought it didn't work on B&W negs? Anyway I don't use it and use PS content aware fill to spot the scans as required.

    This is 8x10 Retro-Tonal in Rodinal (35 minutes stand) done with a Gandofi & 240 Sironar.
    A Monochrom version is in the Leica thread. Scanned 8x10 is smoother but not sharper.
    I set (Epson V750) the minimum dust removal for tiny specks and do the larger ones by hand.
