Just ordered a epson v300 scanner. Start digitizing all those old photos! And just pay for developing on new ones, until I learn how to develop film that is!

Good deal! I'm not sure the difference between the V300 and V330, but I think you'll be happy with it.

Ha! I just hope Kodak sells to someone who actually cares about and understands film. Ilford would be an ideal candidate in my opinion...having all their awesome b&w films and Kodaks color films under one roof would be amazing.

That's an interesting thought as I have long been a fan of Ilford films. Though Tri-X does have its place in the world ;) (TMax films also have a big fan base, I miss Plus-X, that was a nice film. Glad I still have a couple rolls left)

The Fuji Neopans were my top choice for most things though but I could just as happily shoot Ilford.

Oh yeah! If that happened I would hope that Kodaks b&w films would stick around as well...tri-x is definitely one of my favorites.

Thought I'd share a funny moment with y'all.

Today, my photography instructor directed us to the Kodak website. He talked about how they were one of the best innovators in photography, but how they've fallen behind. He then said,"They were the top producer in film, which they don't even make any more."

INSTANTLY I said,"Woah woah cowboy. They make some of the best color film on the market, I don't know who told you they don't make film anymore."

Broke my heart a little when a photography teacher didn't even know that Kodak still makes film. :(

BOOM! Good story!

What I just ordered at B&H. A lot of crappy films as well, but that's because I don't know how to develop C-41 *yet*. I figured I should order some crappy film I can f*ck up which doesn't really matter so I can learn C-41.

Grains pretty good. I have been reading that the Kentmere can be too grainy. Processed Walmart send out, so Fuji I imagine.

I know. Theres some E6 as well, but I got unlimited access to both chemicals, cheap photo paper, a couple darkrooms and what not. It's awesome being a student, haha! :)
Only slide film in there is the Velvia right? I just want to try it out one time. I'll have that developed for me

Also: which photoscanners should I be looking at. I want to be able to scan 35mm and 120 film. I'm thinking Epson V500 or V600, but what about Canon scanners? 200$ MAX is my budget.

Well I hit the jack pot. A friend of mine gave me his whole dark room setup:

I am not sure if I will use the enlarger, but the tank is definitely a awesome score!

I need to clean some up and rescan. Anyone know of a safe way to clean slides?

I've been looking at buying some more film for my 4x5 camera. I've been scouring eBay and saw this:

(11) 4X5 Ektachrome E100G 20sht boxes (220 sheets total!!!) (external link)

Seems a bit pricey for 220 sheets of film ($2.95 per sheet).

Anyway, is it a good idea to trust that expired film has been taken care of? It's been expired for almost 6 years.

I have never shot expired film. I am the type of person who buys film and uses it immediately. So I am sort of new to this whole expired film deal. I'd much rather buy my film NEW from Freestyle Photo.

By the way, I don't have the money to buy this so if it's a great deal then have at it. :)

I think your scan is backwards. :)

I was there last February. Best way to clean up is with canned air, followed by scanning with digital ICE enabled.

I was never a fan of Ektachrome. The best slide film, overall, is Fujichrome Provia 100F, IMO. Great colors, natural skin tones and no reciprocity failure for 2 minutes. I have two 25-sheet boxes of Velvia 50, but Provia is much easier to shoot with.
