    HASSELBLAD 500CM + 150/4 + Kodak VPS III
    Fuji X-Pro3 + Zeiss Touit 50M



    --

    I used a Fuji X-Pro3 (XP3) for digitizing this negative. I rented the XP3 to see if I wanted to make the upgrade from the X-Pro2.
    The XP3's unique screen design makes it advantageous for use on a copy stand. I am happy to say it is a breeze to use with my setup.
    Got one on order because for me, it is that good.

    Kind regards,
    Darr

    I don't think there's anything of the old works to see there now.
    I was first there in 1987 and there were quite a few signs of Kubricks Vietnam sets (palm trees not being native to Beckton). Of course you can share them they are on the web after all, full set are at https://johnmcmaster.com/PESO/Beckton

    Xpan photos are rare.Thanks for posting.
    I feel XPAN and other panoramic cameras deserve a thread of their own. Perhaps something like "Fun with XPAN and Other Panoramic cameras."
    I had a Fuji version about 20 years ago.

    Earlier this week, I did my first commercial job on film since I went digital 15 years ago. I'm ordering more Ektar, going back there with a heavier tripod.

    It's a plant for processing of chicken byproducts. It's installed next to a poultry dressing plant. The feet, heads, intestines, much of the bones etc. is the input for this plant. The output is chicken (bone and meat) meal which is used as an ingredient for animal feed. The plant has an input capacity of 15 tons per hour and will be commissioned the coming week before official handover to the customer. My day job is selling plants like this to the meat and fish processing industries. They are available for more or less any animal or fish byproducts.

    The colour photo above shows the dryer that is the core of the plant.

    Re: Fun with Medium Format FILM Images!

    As usual, lovely photos in this thread! I'm way behind.

    Since shooting with medium format film and presenting the photos here implies a need for 120 film scanning, I saw this today:

    https://www.negative.supply/

    Interesting things … These folks have a pro-grade 35mm carrier designed for copy camera film scanning and are working on a similar pro-grade quality 120 carrier. A pro-grade film carrier for 120 format scanning would be very nice indeed and would make 120 film much easier to work with... I've bought into the Kickstarter on that project.

    Kickstarter: Negative Supply 120 scanning carrier

    If the quality matches what I see in the 35mm product, it is worth the price ... but it's fairly pricey.

    Re: Fun with Medium Format FILM Images!

    Last week I took my Rollei 2.8F off its display shelf, loaded a roll of Tri X and went for a walk. The camera is 60 years old; I've owned it for about 20 years but never used it. I grew up with Rollei TLRs in my university days but could never afford the flagship, and I bought this one in a fit of nostalgia - and never regretted it. It is a mechanical masterpiece. As fas I know it's never been serviced and its only fault is that the 1/2 and 1 second speeds are too long. I guess we all get stiff with age.



    This is one of the 12 shots I took. They all came out quite well though Tri X was not the right film for a sunny snowy day! I had to use 1/500th (which probably is slower than that) at F16 and the negatives are still a bit dense. Developed in DF96 then copied with my XF and processed in C1.

    Lovely story and image, Bill.

    I have fond memories of my grandfather shooting a Rollei TLR and have a collection of his negatives he made with it. Below is one of my mother made about 80 years ago! I always wanted one but could not afford the top of the line, so I was happy when I was able to get a 1957 T model in pristine condition. You have motivated me to run a roll thru mine, thank you!

    Because of how leaf shutters work, the effective exposure speed won't be accurate at maximum speed and minimum aperture. It should be accurate wide-open, and at intermediate apertures.
    The speed of the shutter doesn't change, but the percentage of time that it is partially obstructing the aperture does.

    The workaround is to use a slower film, or a light-absorbing filter (ND, polarizer, any coloured filter in B&W).

    One of the first shots I took with my Hasselblad (I've only had it since Dec 2018). I've improved my scanning and processing techniques a bit since last year, so I thought I'd give this one another pass. I'm now using the Hasselblad Zeiss 120/4 Makro-Planar for scanning at 1:2 on my A7rII, which gets me a bit more resolution. Prior scan with a bit of color cast here.

    Very nice Graham,

    I'm not sure if the Hasselblad lens is the best choice as it might not be able to resolve, but your picture sure looks good. I am using a Canon 100mm 2.8L macro and it works quite well. I am considering trying the 65mm Voigtlander when I find a nice copy. It's good to keep working on the process. My flatbed also does a surprisingly great job at medium format and larger as long as I use the holders.

    Cheers,

    I'm curious as to why you say the Zeiss Makro-Planar 120mm f/4 "might not be able to resolve" ...? Resolve what? and why do you think that? This is a very very high performance lens, particularly in the near field, in my experience.

    Re: Fun with Medium Format FILM Images!

    Thanks, Joel, I'm just using what I have available, so it may not be optimal. As you said, I'm always working on the process. I'm really just scanning on a single frame also, so closer to 1:2.3, and end up with a 27.7MP file here. The lens could go a bit closer, but would start to require stitching. I've only ever printed 8" x 8" from my Hasselblad, so I don't really need the extra resolution, but it would be interesting to see how big these files can support. I'm always curious when I hear of massive 80MP+ files from medium format, whether the film actually contains that level of detail (or could I interpolate this one up to look the same?). In this particular image though, I would think how sharp the Hasselblad 80/2.8 is wide open is more the limiting factor...

    Here's a link to the full size version for pixel peeping.

    Same boring location, different subject matter. The GX680 is fantastic for this kind of work, as is the 50mm.

    Fuji GX680 III with 50mm f/5.6 (maximum rise for this lens) and Ektar 100, low-res lab scan

    I had a look at your full resolution image, and I think there's potential for less grain. This looks like what I got from the lab that I used previously and was one of the reasons why I changed. It must be said though that since I currenty use Ektar, which is more or less grain free (think Velvia style) and great for technical application but not so much for people shots, my reference material might not be entirely fair. Portra 160 shows more grain than Ektar.

    I will have a few 100+ MP scans of Ektar (6x8 at 4,000 dpi) done next week and will post some full-res examples here later. Some of my images will be printed up to 3 metres wide for use as exhibition backdrops.

    Hi, I was referring to resolving the 42mp sensor in the Sony A7rii (which I use as well). Anyway, like I said, I am not sure if this is the case. The small image looks very nice, but the full resolution image does look grainy as you mentioned. Not sure how to improve that except perhaps in PS.

    I am not an expert in NR or sharpening, so perhaps I need to experiment a bit to improve my results. I tend to opt for more noise vs. over-smoothing. An additional process improvement I could make to reduce noise is to use the smooth reflection app to average multiple shots. Not a lot of extra effort here since everything is done in-camera, just a bit longer to "scan".

    Another thought--I would be curious to try this whole process with a more recent Sony model that can perform pixel-shift to see what improvement can be realized there as well. There are a lot of variables to play with here and balanced with the level of effort and benefit in image quality.

    Re: Fun with Medium Format FILM Images!

    Time ago I made those two images out of a photography school workshop on the subject "Alice in Wonderland".
    Each one is a composition of two film shots: the background wall and all the rest.
    I had fun putting in a rich set of symbols coming from the story.

    Shot with Hasselblad 500C/M, Planar 80mm f2.8 and Fuji Provia.

    Scanned on my Imacon Flextight 848 and composed in Photoshop.

    Thanks for looking.

    very nice
    i recently scanned a few 6x6 with my GFX50r and 90mm APO summicron M with the leica Macro adapter M..results were very good.

I'm now using the Hasselblad Zeiss 120/4 Makro-Planar for scanning at 1:2 on my A7rII, which gets me a bit more resolution. Prior scan with a bit of color cast here.
