      Since we revisit this about every month or so for people wanting to show what they shoot on film, I'm making an official film thread where you guys can share your film work, talk about film, talk about processing it, what film is still available, etc, etc, etc.

      This way we can keep it in one place and do not have to have the thread pop up every month.

      So enjoy the film thread.

      BTW, there is no and will not be a digital thread as everything is digital these days and so there is no need for it....so dont ask!!

      Nice!

      Some Scanned negs from my Diana


    4. 12-28-2008 10:36 PM #4

      minolta SRT-101, 35mm f2.8 at f4, 1/20th, Kodak 1600 ISO film



      Canon EOS1000, 24-85mm at f5.6, something, Kodak Reala 400 ISO
      Bought the Canon for $20, only saw 4 rolls of film and shutter died from heat exposure.

      minolta SRT-101, 50mm f1.4 at f2, 1/60th, Kodak 400 ISO Reala film


      35mm f2.8 here, slowed to maybe 1/15th of a second but manage to keep the left words sharp as focus was eyeballed there.

      I have a ton of slide film that needs scanning. Alot of awesome stuff that needs digitizing.

      I do best in film, in terms of shots to keepers ratio is almost 3 to 1, where digital can be 10 to one.

      I rarely shoot digital. Film can have its downsides, and scanning is not something I look forward to doing, but there's something so satisfying about processing your own film and seeing the results for the first time, or looking at 120 E6 film on a light table.

      Mike, this is simply stellar.

      I'm not sure I've seen a better photo of the bridge, film or digital. Excellent work!!

      Thanks Matt. I've been in a bit of a photo rut lately so it's nice to read that.

      I agree, that's an amazing shot. Any more information on it...camera, film?

      Timed night shots with 100-speed film (AGFA Optima II, in this case) were fun.

      Nice...I've been wanting to try night shots on film.

    13. 01-03-2009 03:25 PM #13
      What is film??

      Na, but that night shot with the spot lights going into space is a real cool shot

      Excellent idea for a thread! Decided to put the digital camera down for a while and I've shot about 8 rolls of Provia100F during the last week. Yeah, it takes longer to see the images compared to digital but I still enjoy seeing the end result.

      Awesome! It's completely timeless (well, i suppose it's obviously in the last century or so.)

      Where do most of you guys get processing done? I always seem to run into an issue with local labs when I take film in. Sloppy scans, dust on the negatives, too much "correction" done to the negatives and so on. I feel lazy for asking but are there any quality affordable mail order services?

      I've been wondering the same thing. I don't have a local camera shop, so I end up going to Target, and I've had 3 instances lately where I've had to take the prints back to have them re-scanned.
      I've only used the Fuji mailers (for slide film) and was very happy with the service.

      I'm lucky enough to have a good lab close by, but it still takes them a week or so to develop 120 film, I think they send it out. My scanner arrived today, so I practiced on some slides I found in the basement of my rental house:

      Here are a few i took before I found digital 35mm. I still use my Mamiya 645, but at a cost of $3.50 a frame to develop and scan it, I don't use it as much as i would like.

      Wow - that's really expensive. I know that walmart [as much as I dislike the place] will send out 120 rollfilm to a fuji lab and it's only a couple bucks for just developing - e6 is a bit more, but still cheap. I just bought a refurbished canon scanner for $100 to scan them myself and have seen good results from that. So I'm only looking at ~$0.50/frame for c41 and $0.75/frame for e6 all told.

      Ya, that's going through a local lab that I trust really well.

      I work at a Wal Mart photo lab and to be honest, I wouldn't trust Fuji to tie my shoe laces nonetheless touch my film. They are the biggest screw-up of a corporation I have ever dealt with and to make things worse, they are cutting back their customer service and reps because they are gouging money (because of poor customer service and maintenance).

      Where did you find the Canon scanner? I would love to be able to scan my own film with good results. That alone would save me $20 a roll...

      I've only scanned one roll with it, but it seems to work pretty well! Took me about an hour to scan them all - but you can edit scans that are already done at the same time and it doesn't seem to bother it.
      I don't need 4000dpi scans, and have been working with 1600-2000dpi and it seems like plenty. I haven't scanned any velvia with it yet, but I've heard that that is notoriously difficult to scan well.

      That's part of my problem, I shoot exclusively Velvia 50. There's nothing as good looking as a 120 slide.

      Thanks for the link though, I'm definitely going to keep that in mind.

      Expenses in F1 have gone down since the 1960s because teams don't need an extra pit crew to help the driver carry around his balls when he is not in the car.

      any other opinions out there on relatively cheap scanners with the ability to scan 35/120?

      and a pic shot with Fuji Superia 100 on an F1 for kicks:
