I smell a scanner coming the way! ;):lol:

...

Good luck and don't forget to post something here!

I think you are right. :lol:

I have lots of old pictures (negatives) of my kids to scan, so could be killing 2 birds with 1 stone. Never scanned negatives though. So can only hope it's fool proof. :)

Got to say the Epson V600 looks like a very nice compromise. I think I'll wait for reviews of the Canon 9000f (external link) to come out (seems similarly priced and apparently coming out in less than a month) to decide which way to go. Seems like Epson has tradiitonally the edge on reproducing blacks, from what I read.

The camera body should only get here next week. Got the film already. Now it's a waiting game... But I'll definitely post one of my first efforts when I get it.

I have the older 8800f and I am very happy with it. I can only imagine that this one is better.

Holy crap - I just picked up a Fuji GA645i medium format auto-everything rangefinder. It has an incredibly sharp and contrasty 60mm (37mm equivalent on 35mm) f/4 lens. The scans from this thing are unbelievable. It is definitely going to get a lot of use and it tucks away nicely for travel. These are on Ektar 100.

2 quick and dirty film scans:

I've been wanting to get this shot for a while... turned out so-so...

As an aside, I just made an order with Freestyle for everything I need for developing black and white 4x5... Can't wait to start experimenting now that I don't have to pay $6 per sheet for development!

Just today i started to develop my B&W film at home, i did 3 rolls, too bad that 1 of them came out nothing or bad, and the other 2 came out fine [not sure until i scan or print], I am so happy i did it at home even i did develop before at workshop i attended, but nothing like when i do it alone myself without someone else with me around.
Honestly for first roll i developed [which was also my first ever B&W film i shoot] i did many mistakes, so even it went bad i will not feel bad as i expect i will ruin it or it is ruined already before i develop., also it was a nightmare to load the roll into the reel, i spent about 1 hour and so to load it for the first roll, and then took something between 5-15 minutes for the others, the first one i tried first with Paterson reel, gave up and then tried Jobo one, gave up again and last i tried the stainless steel one and it worked but seems i corrupted so far, also because i was so mad and disappointed i put a water in Jobo tank and then put it in the changing bag [while the film is closed on Paterson tank without reel, and took out the film in the changing back to wash the roll, as when i tried to load it was stuck and not going through so i thought it was like adhesive or not dry or so], i learnt but seeing the other two coming out nicely i forgot all my mistakes, even those two came out were the shots i was looking for, I have one roll remain but i don't know if the fixer is enough.

Just checking in since I've been using film recently. I've also been running through a gammut of test scans with my wife's HP7100, just to see if it'll do. It won't due, too much detail loss even at lower rez.

Looks like the Epson V500 is in my future, but I'm still split between Silverfast or Vuescan...

ive used vuescan and never really got the hang of it, although i know theres almost a cult like following for it among film scanners. silvefast has its loyal users too, and they are proud of it. try using both demos and seeing which one you feel comfortable with.

peronsally, i use the scangear that came with my canon 8800f and just tweak some settings and do the rest in photoshop

Finally! My first roll of film (on SLR. I had a couple of points and shoots in the 80ies and 90ies) has been processed and I've found the time to import the scans (made by Boots, so no artistic control from myself yet) into Lightroom and Flickr.

I have to say that shooting film takes a certain kind of patience. No instant gratification, no instant results. Just nail biting and waiting. But then you get to rediscover your pictures (some you have forgotten you had shot) and that part is tons of fun!

Here is a mosaic of the shots I took:

IMAGE: http://www.cameraobscurablog.com/storage/mosaic_fujicolorfilm.jpg

Boot's' scans aren't bad but are quite low res, seem to exaggerate the noise a bit and are less saturated than the processed prints. So I'll guess I'll really have to look at a scanner at some point. Does this hobby ever stop costing money? Wait. Don't answer that.

One of the nice thing for those, like me, who always shot on crop sensors, is how wide 20mm (the focal length for that last shot) becomes on my film body. Nice. :)

More on Flickr (external link).

As you can tell, I'm quite giddy about it. :)

Now onto the Ilford B&W film! Should only take me another couple of months.

Nice shots!
I am happy so far with film and it took me away a bit from digital, and now i am just shooting B&W and i am so impressed with the results, but i may go back to shoot color film again, i hope so.

B&W film is awesome to shoot with, but when you get back a color positive roll of film, you just can't beat the feeling of it.

Especially when they're 6x7cm Velvias!
