He was a busy fellow for a couple days then, eh?
I'm glad I got mine when I did because they have apparently quit selling them? I'm pretty sure you find one if you really wanted one.

I think that's pretty much all he did for the whole two days!! They are still available in the UK on Amazon from 7dayshop. I wouldn't say the quality was brilliant but it was certainly ok.

the only problem with that is if you are shooting colour that's not a colour negative, that got a orange tint to it then you have to set the white balance to it. or just convert it to b&W

You'll always need to adjust the white balance when doing it this way. The scanners do it automatically.

Do you do the standard or enhanced scans? I have my v550 and I'm not too happy on the scans of color film. Black and white is fine, but the colors are always kind of "blah", and not anything like what I see from other scans of the same film. $11 for develop and scanned is awesome, but if the included ones are less than one megapixel then I'm gonna have to pass. Still $15 isn't too bad.

I have tried both, the higher priced ones are better of course. Depends on what you want the photos for. You can ask the processor, I think in the case of The Darkroom they explain it on the web site.

hi guys,

after endless research, I would like to present to you my starting gear into film photography! :-)

have forgotten what light feels like. The camera is the same weight as the 50mm. Would probably add the Nikon F2 and the Nikkor-O 35mm f/2 within a month or two.

Can't wait to burn through the Kodak Ultramax 400 currently loaded. Portra 400 is currently an insane USD11 per roll where I am from. vmad


cheers!

Congrats!! Tough to see on my phone what you ended up with. Mind sharing the details? What kind of workflow do you think you'll follow? Hybrid? Going to develop yourself?

Hi there,

it is a Yashica 35 Electro GX fixed lens rangefinder.

At the moment I am still looking around for a good scanner but in the meantime, will send my film to the lab near my place to get them developed and scanned. Will be looking to doing the developing myself in the near future with B/W. :-) the process of getting into film is as enjoyable as making pictures.

cheers!

Those are usually pretty good cameras. We'll have to see how yours performs. Have fun. :-)

it's so interesting I got something so different from the choices which I listed out not too long ago. I even toyed with the idea of a Mamiya 645E with the 80mm f2.8 but the weight put me off. :-P

I've had good success in the past with the Epson Vxxx series and the Canon CanoScan 9000 series. I've never scanned 35mm with them though. Only 120. One thing that I find an extremely worth upgrade to either are the holders from betterscanning.com. Makes life a lot easier. You've got yourself a nice kit there. I hope it works out well for you.

the Canoscan 9000f II goes for less than USD150 used, and the V700 more than double the price. read pretty average reviews for the canon and pretty good ones for the V700 as I would expect from the price disparity so mulling over it. Scanners like these more often than not prefer 120 film than 135 film.

On a different note, has anyone here owned the Nikon F2 and the Leica M3/4/6 with their 35mm f/2 equivalents notice a marked difference in pictures produced? is it worth the difference in price?


cheers!

Well, I'm puzzled as to 'resolving power'. The images I've taken so far don't look to me as sharp as those made with my digital camera. Wondering whether it's the lens, the camera, the exposure, the film or my developing. Or my scanning. Too many variables. :( vmad

You can check the negatives with a loupe first. If they are sharp it's not the camera...
What camera was it?

Looking at a sample image, I'm not sure it's right where it's s'posed to be (maybe I'm too used to digital being übersharp):

That's the image after Photoshop (curves, retouch and high pass sharpening).

The original, right out of the scanner would be this one:

Scanned @ 3200 dpi, using Epson Scan (Epson V220), Gamma 1.8 colour space.
