also bought a 4x5 Enlarger with holders, trays, 50/90/135 lenses and easel for $50!
just need to get paper, stop bath and safe light and i should be set on printing too.

Amazing deal! Nothing like this here, in Toronto.
Darkroom printing is my remedy for absence of light season which is coming.

I ordered cheap Shanghai 4x5 and 120 film, purchased 6x7 film back and 200 sheets of Ilford MG RC 3 1/2 x 5 paper.
It fits into film holder and works as negative instead of film.
Very cost effective for LF.

^thanks, yup I'm trying to shoot as much as i can right now then maybe spend more time printing over winter.

had some free time tonight so I decided to do some quick test prints, apparently the 250w bulb that came with the enlarger is too hot as I was exposing the image at only 2 seconds at f/22, fortunately there's a good film community on FB that suggested using a lower watt bulb.

I like your drying method!
APUG is great for film and darkroom questions. They have sub-forums for it.

Nice prints Taemo, and I like the 2 NYC shots Edge!

I have a friend who has offered to lend me his Mamiya RB67 for a month, so I'll be shooting 6x7 rather than 4x5 for now. I'll be picking it up on Wednesday, looking forward to shooting some landscapes with it! He already let me borrow an original Yashica Mat, which has been a lot of fun, and it makes me want to get a 124G down the road. I've shot 3 rolls with it so far, hoping to have them developed next week...

M3 & Arista Premium:

the RB67 is a beast of a camera, huge but versatile.
I like how you can rotate the back depending on whether you want to shoot landscape or portrait.
good call on going MF first before LF, can't wait to see your shots with it.

for how cheap you can get a working 124G, I would say go for it.
fun little camera.. the 6x6 scans I posted 2 weeks ago were taken with one.

Hexar AF - always wanted one and finally decided on getting one a month ago, was originally planning on getting the lens extracted and converted to M but figured might as well enjoy the camera as it is right now.

Yeah, the rotating back will be a bonus! I'll be up in the Algonquin Park area for a week or two right after getting the RB67, so I'm looking forward to some fall landscape shooting! Planning on ordering some Delta 100, Ektar, HP5 and Velvia 50 for the trip.

I've been enjoying shooting 6x6 as well. Will post some results soon!

Your latest 4x5 is great!

Wow, haven't shot with film for a while. Some shots from few days ago. I am expecting to get a Yashica Mat this week...after selling my RZ67. RZ67 was too big and it was very uncomfortable for me to shoot with it, although the IQ is nice.

Fuji Superia 400 at EI 320, OM 2n.

Thinking about getting the ColorPerfect. At times, shooting with color films, I feel like I am in the dark trying to get the right color corrections. Most of the times, I feel like I am over correcting the colors and taking away the natural color cast of the film itself.

I highly recommend ColorPerfect (https://www.youtube.co​m …=UUcTBVcN21KaOU​kZAJPGuXKw (external link)).

That said, you have to remember that negative films don't have a "natural" or "correct" look. Negatives are meant to be interpreted for the final print (or, as Ansel Adams put it, the negative is the score and the print is the performance).

So while all films have a characteristic tone curve relative to one another, there is no objectively correct look.

I am trying it out now and I like it. I am following this workflow here....

$67 for a plugin is steep and considering all it does (for people shooting film) is to convert the film reversal process. I don't even get an enlarged preview under CS5, pc version. I am getting a tinny work box.

That's my video.

Yes, it's steep. But in my experience, it's the only tool that gets it right every time. Life is too short to worry about inverting and colour correcting negatives. ;)

Since I can not afford the ColorPerfect right now....I managed to use the RGB settings on the colorperfect output file (trial version has grids on the output files) and to match it to my tiff file. It was close enough. It allows me to see what my negative is supposed to look like and I can match the color settings manually in CS5.
