Hi there, It was fujifilm Superia Xtra 400 and developed by a lab. The negs don't look too bad to the naked eye. but the images on disk are really bad. I will see if i can post an original tonight so people can see...

Maybe a problem with their scanner.

Was it a prolab or a CVS/Walgreens lab? When I really got into film I was getting it scanned and developed by Walgreens, and I always had the sickly green cast. I bought my own scanner (Epson v550) and scanned the negatives and they looked awesome. Don't know what it is about walgreen's scanners, but the green shadow always shows up, regardless of what film I shoot.

No I haven't but know I know I can.... I just use stand development at this point so the process is slow enough that I don't have the fixer ready and measured until I need it. But I can see myself doing that.


I try to make art by pushing buttons

Guess it's their signature and brand image.

Or maybe they just do care about the environment. :p

it was from a shop called snappy snaps, a bit hard to explain, better than supermarket but worse than professional lab. Been thinking of scanning them myself to see if they are any better.

I think you should.

I remember a story the lady from my lab told me: once she was in line at Waldo-mart and in front of her was a woman who had just picked up her prints from the Walmart's 'lab' and was looking at them. The lady from the lab couldn't help but see that the pictures had a sickly green cast—all of them! So she told the woman to go down to her lab (which was in the same mall) and give them the negatives and that they'd print the photos for free, just so that she could see the difference. The woman acquiesced, went to the lab, and got real prints. Needless to say, she remained a loyal client of the lab ever since.

Just playing around with my new to me Toyo 45AX Field camera.
Weather won't cooperate so I can get out in the sunshine with it so I used the old dried up flower arrangement I keep around for a test subject.
This is my very first time tripping the shutter with film in the camera with the Toyo 45AX.

Toyo 45AX; Nikkor-W 210 f5.6; Ilford HP5+ in D-76; printed on Ilford MG IV RC Glossy 8X10
