I thought it looked familiar. I photographed these guys last Spring with my Pentax 6x7 while there on a layover.

Mexico City is a really cool place that I plan on visiting again. It's so big and vast that my 10 day stay was like a blink of an eye. Truth be told I love Mexico in general and would like to see a lot more of it!
I went with a friend I went to HS with, who has since moved to Mexico and he's living there currently - in Queretaro for the next month before moving on to the next city.

Is everyone, who soups at home, printing their film or scanning it directly? I haven't processed any film in over 2 decades and while I was mostly doing PJ work, I sometimes dragged my feet, printing more than just a couple of images...

Looks like you good people are spending a lot of time in the dark room

I print and scan my black and white negs. I use the scan as the “version to beat” in the darkroom. Sometimes the inkjet print from the scan wins. Sometimes the silver print does. Depends on the negative.

The scans from the Darkroom have been very disappointing lately. Gonna try somewhere new or just buy my own scanner sooner than later.

I've tried a number of different labs. The ones I've gotten the best results from were Northeast Photographic and The FIND Lab. Northeast Photographic is only $13 for full resolution develop and scan, but the shipping back is $8 which brings the total to $21 so it's a little more expensive than The Darkroom. They have given me the best results of every lab I've tried. The FIND Lab has both Frontier and Noritsu scanners, and they can hold all of your film for 6 months so you only have to pay shipping once.

Thanks for the tips! The darkroom is $5 flat rate, and I never send one roll at a time (sent 11 last time).

Check out this sweet line through the scan!! 2 rolls this last time I think, and one from the time before. It annoys me, but not enough to complain.

Buy a scanner and never look back. If you shoot a lot of film it will pay for itself very quickly.
My V700 is 10 yrs old and still going strong.

I know, I know! I’ll get there eventually! I need to develop my own stuff, but I also need a scanner, light meter and a more manual 120 camera. Oh, and I need to get through this giant backlog of exposed film I have in a box (60+ rolls).

I did order some more film the other day though...! I know, I’m doing it wrong.

my brother all-in-one printers (one a bw laser, the other a color inkjet) just dont have what it takes for scanning pictures...

can someone point me in the right direction to START looking at scanners? id like one for negs and slides too but in reading some descriptions on products, every manufacturer makes the best and the easiest to use. someone HAS TO BE lying...

I hear Epson being named most often. V600, V700, V800, etc. I think the FPP guys are using V700s. I've not ever used one, but thats what comes to mind first.

I used a HP G4050 for years, it just wasn't doing what I wanted. I picked up the Plustek 8200i and I'm very happy with the results. I paired it with the Vuescan software and I'm happy. To me, the included software (Silverfast) is too much for what I want. I'm a simple scan type. I want easy and relatively quick scans. I'll play with the scan in light room, but that is it.

now, I've put my Medium format on hold for a while until I figure out how I want to scan those. The G4050 still scans MF well, but not as good as the 8200i for 35mm.


Thanks!

The V700 is definitely the FPP scanner of choice. I think Leslie uses the V750. They are great scanners covering 35mm - 8x10. I can even scan my 11x14 film in 4 separate scans and stitch them together.

What size film are you scanning? Flatbeds are awful for 35mm, even the Epson V850. For medium format they're fine, but 35mm is just sad looking. If you're doing strictly 35mm then the Plustek 8200i is great. The only dedicated scanner I can't recommend is the Pacific Image XAs; both ones I owned had banding issues, and the second copy scratched every negative I fed through it.

Just finished rehabbing a Mamiya RZ67 Pro II that was gifted to me...taking it out this weekend to run the first rolls through it, excited and a little terrified of this beast! Hopefully will have something to contribute soon.
