Glad to see you enjoying your Bessa. Thoughts on the new Ektachrome? Kinda wanna try some but it's still expensive where I live

Is the EPSON V600 any good for scanning film if you wet mount directly on the glass?

Saw a video comparing V600 vs V800 and it's like a night and day difference between the two https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9i7hKIx2_Ow but from what I understand the film is held higher than the the focal point of the scanner in the V600 and I think the V800 has a special lens, focused to where the height of film in a holder is, so this video is potentially misleading.

Anyone have any examples of wet mounted V600 vs V800 scans? I'd love to see that kind of comparison.
>>
>>3476174
I've only shot 4 rolls of the stuff with 2 more on the go right now. It's great film, though I'm still not sure if I prefer it over Provia. I stumbled upon 40 rolls of Velvia 50 for $150 recently so I think that will be my main slide for the next while...

holy fuck i haven't been able to figure it out thanks so much for this. i usually just rock sunny 16 and the camera seems to want to overexpose 0.5-1 stop. thanks for that graphic!
>>
>>3476175
Tried it, looks like shit and if you’re wet mounting you risk getting fluid into the scanner. Some people have reported sharper scans when mounting directly to the bed - either they’re doing something very wrong or their scanner is fucked. The V600 having a focal plane level with the glass is bullshit, the plane is designed to be above the glass. As always your mileage may vary (QC on these things isn’t great and focus discrepancies may occur) so do your own tests scanning negs under a glass plane on the scanner bed.

I’ve given up on trying to get good scans from the V600 and have bought a V700 and wet mount kit instead.
>>
>>3476202
Very nice. Longer exposure would’ve been perfect.
>>
>>3476237
What would that have done?
>>
>>3476243
Differentfag here, hi. It'd have smoothed out the water, which is high-frequency detail and looks a bit annoying otherwise. Can't be done handheld of course.
>>
>>3476246
>>3476237
whoa, never thought i'd see /p/ speak positively over the smooth water meme...
>>
>>3476237
It's something like 1/250 f/5.6 if I remember correctly. You can tell that the negative is becoming saturated by how the white building in the centre is loosing definition. Exposing up would have damaged the contrast. Also I was on a vaporetto when I shot it so the shutter speed was necessary to avoid blur from my motion.
>>
>>3476237
but yes, thank you for the compliment.
>>
>>3476236
>if you’re wet mounting you risk getting fluid into the scanner.
True but figured that was an obvious danger to avoid with methods.

>The V600 having a focal plane level with the glass is bullshit, the plane is designed to be above the glass.

With the other scanners with a second lens for scanning film those ones are obviously above the glass but for the V600 which is a single lens system I thought it being on the glass would make the most sense since it's a flatbed mostly used for photos. Not having optimal focus at the glass would be inherently bad for all photo and document scanning, no?
>>
I recently bought out a retiring photographer's stuff. One of the items was a Polaroid sx70.

I kinda want to play with it, but I'd like to be able to test it before I drop that stupidly high price for a film pack, but since the battery is in the pack, is there a way to do so?
>>
>>3476258
You can ask for an expired pack for testing purposes, I got one for half the price.
>>
>>3476285
Good idea, thanks.
>>
>>3476233
You're welcome. When I had my Bessa, I had the same issue, that's why I asked.

First time scanning some FP4 and I'm pretty chuffed. Compared to my mainstay of Tri-x I love the level of grain, though the grit of Tri-x is awesome too. I'd upload the original but the file size is too big!
>>
Hey fellas. So I bought a light pad for negative scanning and its great, though it would be cool if it were a little brighter. It runs on USB power. Could I achieve higher brightness by using a higher output USB outlet?
>>
>>3476345
Probably not, but you can check by seeing the wattage of both the lamp and the outlet.
>>
>>3476345
>>3476356
no that's not how electricity works
all usb ports are 5v
>>
>>3476358
no
if the lamp consumes 10W, and the supply provides only 5W, then upgrading to a 10W supply will increase the brightness
holy fuck are you a retard
>>
>>3476257
>Not having optimal focus at the glass would be inherently bad for all photo and document scanning, no?
Yes, but the Perfection series are first and foremost film scanners which also happen to do other stuff. Getting the correct focus on small negatives is significantly more important than getting it on documents or print photos. Again, the only way to know is to try yourself but I guarantee you the people out there claiming the focal plane is on the glass are doing something wrong.
>>
>>3476237
And wash out those colors? No way.
>>
>>3476301
So how do you use the meter? Do you rate your film ~1/3 stop faster via the ISO dial? Or do you trust the meter?
>>
>>3476368
I sold the Bessa, but when I used it, I pointed the meter at my subject and a little towards the ground. Considering the pattern, the sky might actually falsify your metering.
>>
>>3476362
If your mom is consuming 2 inches of your cock, and you push it in 3 more inches, she is consuming 2 inches of cock plus 3 inches of fupa.
>>
>>3476369
It's already trying to overexpose too much so definitely not getting winked by the sky. If anything that'd balance it out better.

Sunny 16 tells me I should be at 1/125 @ F16 and the meter tells me I should be at F11ish.

>>
>>3476405
in those tests he only compared the flimsy epson holder vs on glass..
the only thing they prove is that film flatness matters
now the real is the betterscanning and anr glass vs on glass surface
oh wait don't bother, others have done it, and the conclusion is that the true focus dof is about several mms above the scanner surface
>>
>>3476414
Not him but what resolution can I expect from an Epson scanner with better holders? I heard it's around 6 megapixels but I'm not sure.

Debating between it and a plustek, but aside from resolution the Epson seems better in every way.

The only situation where you'd need more than 1/1000th is for pushing film past 1600 iso in Sunny 16. Any other situation you're way better off using digital (wildlife, sports, etc)

>1/300 flash sync
Omg you get a stop and less than a third for max flash sync over most focal plain shutters cameras? WTF is a leaf shutter?

Seriously don't understand why anyone would use those film SLRs that are completely electronic when digital exists. I have a Canon EOS 10 and it's so god damn cumbersome to use and the AF is garbage. It's HUGE as fuck, comparable to my Fuji GW690 in size.

Did you read any of my posts? That’s literally what I’m saying. There are a couple of tests online showing sharper scans from the bed and this is probably a combination of shitty qc and the fact the stock holders don’t hold your film flat. There are numerous others for the Perfection series showing a raised ANR holder (or upside-down wet mounting for the V700+) is the best solution.

Since I already have an SLR, I want to to try out rangefinders. Any recs as far as brand/model? Something that will be relatively inexpensive to pick up and robust enough to not fall apart on me.

does it look like pic related?
high chance it's actually prism corrosion. common issue on chinese made pentax k1000 cameras.
can't be fixed as it's the prism mirror silvering flaking off. trying to clean it will make it worse. you need to resilver the prism.
better to get another pentax body to make use of those k mount lenses. the pentax ME Super is fukkin sweet and kinda cheap.

Honestly everyone is going to tell you something different probably but I love the Canonet series. The QL19 was my first but the 17s are more popular with the 28s kinda being the red headed step child...
Yashica also has some very nice rangefinders, the Electro 35 being the most common and economical. but they aren't as robust to say and they can be more fragile. As far as the most simple, common and probably cheapest, the Argus C3 bricks are easy to get into.

Minolta Hi Matics and Petri 7s rangefinders are also pretty nice in my opinion but they can be a little harder to come by sometimes.

>>3476597
Nah that ain't me I just couldn't be fucked responding to you lol. The a9 is a meme of a camera.
Most electronic cameras have a faster max shutter speed, have hss of 1/250th which is less than a third stop slower than the a9's so in practice it's pretty much useless. My EOS 10 has 1/4000th and I think the flash sync is 1/125th? There's odd to be other electronic SLR's with on par specs as the a9 for way less mnoey. Most EOS film bodies go for cheap on eBay, like $20-$30 cheap. If you need more hss buy a hasselbad or any other camera with a leaf shutter.

I don't know what you've read, but Minolta's A-mount bodies have a reputation for dying suddenly and being unrepairable. Get a decent Canon or Nikon AF body, should be quite cheap.

Uhhh...
Is this right?

Like I know the viewfinder isn't full coverage and has a negative magnification, but I wouldn't think that there's this much vignetting. Also, no MF screen is visible (took lens off, looked under mirror, nothing is bouncing around in there).

I'm surprised that lots of people rank the K1000 so highly as a starter film camera if it has an issue that widespread. I guess I'll continue using it as well, as it's still pretty solid in every other regard.

only the chinese made ones from the '90s are affected by that problem. they started making the k1000 sometime in the '70s so there are probably millions of them out there just fine, before the production was moved to china.
early production japan made k1000 cameras have "Asahi" over the Pentax brand and the AOCo badge stamped on the prism housing. those are the "safe" ones to get, free from the prism corrosion issue. late hongkong and china made ones dropped that brandings.

you can actually fix it. just need to take out the prism and have the surfaces resilvered, though it migth be more economical to get another camera. there's some DIY silvering by alchemical magic videos on youtube so that's another alternative.

okay... so noob question but i have a manual focus slr and am wondering about "exposing for the shadows".. would the best way to do this is try to aim at a darker area of the scene, see what shutter speed the meter says, and then reframe and adjust the aperture until you match up with the same shutter speed you saw while pointing at the dark area?

>nikon FA irregular shutter speed
>testing portra 800 shot at 2500, deved at 3200
I've put my first roll through this camera and I noticed that it had some pretty irregular speeds from 1 sec to about 1/10th. I was taking some night shots mostly in A priority and some in manual, and I noticed that the shutter sounded way too fast a few times. Like I set it to 1/2th of a second and it sounded a lot faster, then I wound it again, shot it at the same settings and then it sounded like 1/2. The batteries are all new.
A repair technician once told me that this happens sometimes with cameras that have not been used for too long, and my FA looks like it spent the majority of its life on a shelf. Has anyone heard about this? He said it would get better the more I used it but I've never heard about this and I couldn't find anything online.
I'll dev the roll tomorrow and post results. It might also be interesting because I shot a roll of portra 800 at 2500 and I'll push it by 2 stops.
>>3476947
>tfw my dumbass didn't do proper research and got the 28-105/3.5-4.5 instead, but it's so soft at 28 and 105 that I basically use it as a 35-70 and it's way slower because even at those focal lengths you pretty much have to stop down to f/5.6 to get sharp images
>>3477287
I'm not sure what you mean, but if it's centre weighted then
>put it in aperture priority
>pick the aperture you want to use
>point it at the shadows
>get the shutter speed reading from the meter
>put it in manual mode
>leave the aperture where you first put it
>set your shutter speed to the same as the reading you got earlier
>reframe
>focus
>shoot
If you reframe and change your aperture while the shutter speed remains the same, you'll get a different exposure.
If it has matrix metering then you can pretty much just let it decide.

How much would you pay for this?
Carl Zeiss Distagon 28mm f2 AEG
It's Yashica/Contax mount made in Germany.
>>
>>3477312
It's not how much you'd pay, but:
Do you need it??
Have you fully exploited the potential of your current gear??
Would this improve the pics you're currently able to take or give you new possibilities?
>>
>>3477345
I'm asking to see if there's any interest for this lens, especially the price. It seems to be a very rare lens and ebay is a bit overpriced at around $800+.
>>
Any F6 owners here? Just curious... I've never even seen one IRL.
>>
>>3477351
Very overpriced.
Unless you can put it to good use and make money with it, I guess.
>>
>>3477357
Nope, I'd rather get an F5 or an F4 with lots of lenses for that price
>>
>>3477351
>ebay is a bit overpriced at around $800+.
Sounds about right, I don't think I've seen it below £600. The "problem" is that many people would just get a modern ZF distagon for the same price more or less, or an f/2.8 for a third of the price.

Personally I think it's worth it for what it is.
But how many people know/need what it can do?
It was designed for close ups at wide apertures. That's why it has a floating element design, a very precise focus ring, smooth bokeh, min focus distance of 25cm, and field curvature (spherical) left untreated to give better subject isolation. And that's also why it's so big, longer than a 135mm lens. It was an adaptation of a cine lens, where size was not a concern, but smooth bokeh and subject isolation for closeups was more important.

So all things considered, including that it was made in Germany to very tight tolerances and was limited production, I don't consider it overpriced. However SLR lens prices have tanked (say compared to RF lenses), so people will bulk at the price.
If it was called "Limited Edition Summicron 28mm f/2.0 FLE" they'd gladly pay $2,000 for it.

Do you have it and wanna sell it, or you consider buying it?
>>
>>3477389

Same, I have an F5. I'm definitely not the target market for F6, and have never met anyone who was.
>>
>>3477391
I have it and want to sell it. Got it for a bargain.
>>

They're not moving quickly anon. You can offer a competitive price though, especially if you're in US so no import taxes, also considering you got it for a bargain.

>minolta a9
don't listen to these idiots, it was one of the best 35mm cameras ever made but most serious minolta people actually prefer the a7

it's worth it if you already have a lot of nice alpha mount glass. the maxxum 650si / dynax 600si / alpha 507 (depending on your market) is also a great camera to shoot which has the same ergonomics and much, much cheaper
>>
>>3477450
Why prefer the a7?? Isn't it missing some functions from the a9?
>>
>>3477451
it's lighter and doesn't give up much in the way of features, except maybe bragging rights about the fastest shutter of any slr (the a7 is 1/8000)

i really don't know all the details as i've never personally owned one of the fancy ones, but it's worth looking into.

i've been shooting alpha mount bodies since i first got a maxxum 7000 several years ago and it was my favorite film camera for a while. have a bunch of great lenses and a 700i and 650si now (the 7000 died). though not cheap (since they are shared by later sony dslr's), there are a lot of really good lenses for a lot less $ than canon ef glass
>>
>>3477438
Is fuji pro 400h any good?
>>
>>3476459
HP5 has a stupidly high exposure latitude compared to slide film

Someone talk me out of getting another manual body.
I have a Nikomat but I kinda got tired of no A mode and no metering (it's broken). So I bought an FE but the shutter was fucked so I returned it.
I'm now looking at bodies and the rational part of my brain is telling me to just get an F75 for $50 instead of paying $150 for another FE since most of my lenses are AF anyway. But I really enjoy winding the film and the way a manual body feels and handles, and I find the F75 to be quite ugly.
How do I resist the hipsterfaggot urge to pay more for less advanced tech with fewer features just for aesthetics? I'm pretty bad at focusing too so AF would be nice
>>
>>3477835
You should develop B/W yourself. The kit's like 40 bucks and if you dilute the Rodinal to 1/50+ you can develop dozens of rolls with it, Fixer can be used for weeks in a row.

get into another cheaper manual system? manual nikon is kinda expensive and models with electronics are hard to repair.
if not, just get a higher-end AF nikon body and be done with it. N80 or F100 are the best stuff, without getting into single digit F bodies.

>>3478004
I use a d800 for commercial stuff so if I switched systems I'd have to buy duplicates of some focal lengths. And it's not really about the money either, I just really like the clickiness of all the dials and knobs, how you can feel the gears turning when you wind the camera, and the fact that it looks very low profile and most people probably think it doesn't even work and I'm just fucking around. I'm a major pussy when it comes to taking pictures of strangers and the fact that it looks unobtrusive. I've also been watching a lot of John Free videos lately and I know he'd tell me to just get the AF body if it helps me and stop whining, but then again he uses an F3 which is a manual body so if it's good enough for him it should be good enough for me too. Maybe I should just get another FE and also get a plastic point and shoot for autofocusing, that would look even more like a toy.

>i have an x100t so im not too unfamiliar with the rangefinder aspect
Maybe not with the framing part if you used the OVF all the time, but focus is completely different. Different than autofocus obviously, but also completely different (better) than the X100's simulated, focus by wire "rf focusing" method.

>only thing i would have trouble with is no light meter
Why not the M5? It's the same price if not cheaper.

I have two cameras, and I got both from my dad (did pay for one of them). The only lens I've ever actually bought was the 50mm for the Nikon, from a friend no less, because the old 55 hadn't been used for 15 years and was completely stuck. I guess I want to be able to take more pictures spontaneously; bringing the Nikon is considerably easier than lugging my 120 camera around. Don't have a prefered subject, but I'm more of a sub/urban photographer than anything else.

I did tell you I wanted something longer than a 50 though.

>>3478642
Thanks for the tip, anon. I've looked at the 35-70 before, but not very closely. Never did bother much with zoom lenses. I'll see if I can't find one in my part of the world though.
>>
>>3478667
Juggling multiple prime lenses won't let you take more pictures spontaneously. It will slow you down.

Get a zoom. The 35-70mm 2.8 is a great lens...but it's a brick.
>>
>>3478668
I know, I figure I'd bring whichever might suit the situations I'll be in when I leave the house. The whole idea is that I won't have to carry a large bag.

Thanks, anon.

The 35-70 f/2.8 is quite possibly the dumbest lens to buy in the year of our lord 2019. It's large, heavy, focus is slow, push-pull zoom, and pathetic zoom range. 35mm isn't enough wider and 70mm isn't enough longer than 50mm to be useful, so it's basically just a shittier replacement for a normal prime.

Pretty much anything cheap. Try a 25 sheet box of the cheapest b+w (foma or maybe the Chinese gp3/lucky). Practice loading film in dark slides, setting up camera, either tray or taco developing. Assume that you'll fuck up a few times before you get everything down. It will also let you get to know lens coverage (so how much you can use your movements before you start to vignette), vignette from centre to edges of lens, as well as making a guess at how accurate the shutter speeds are. You'll need all of this if you're going to go on and shoot something less forgiving with respect to exposure like slides.
>>
Fixed up an old FED-5c I had laying around. It needed an infinity RF adjustment, close focus RF adjustment, shutter speed selector dial adjustment and curtain light seal. I have deduced someone has been inside this thing once before and had no fucking clue what they were doing, but I fixed it and the RF checks against my Df with the 85mm

Excellent. I have literally a 4 year backlog and have told myself I'm going to get my shit dev'd and scanned in. Friday I'll be in the shop to fix some small stuff on the tractor and I'll be dropping a ton of shit for dev including all my FED test rolls I've done the last few weeks.

>>3478884

Absolutely not. The 200 and 400 I shot were fantastic. Arista 400 and Foma 200 looks a lot like Tri-X 400 when done in HC110, very contrasty and lots of detail, you're gonna love it. If I'm on the road and in a camera shop and they dont have Tri-X but have Arista and Foma I will take them over Ilford. Again my weapon of choice for development was HC110 Dilution B and Photographer's Formulary TF4.

I own this lens. Paid about $300 for it because it came on ebay cheap because I assume the seller didn't realize it wasn't the 28 2.8. I personally would pay up to $500 if I needed one after having used it a bit.

>>3477351
The price has been driven up due to interest from DSLR filmmakers shooting on APS sensors because 28 is a normal focal length on those.

>>3477391
>It was an adaptation of a cine lens
I don't think this is true. Cine lenses are built for super 35 (APS-C sized image). I a pretty sure the only reason it has the "Hollywood" nickname is because of its popularity with filmmakers who adapt vintage lenses to super 35 cameras.

Also, don't forget there is a Zeiss tax similar to the Leica tax.

>>
>>3479886
The Minolta Maxxum 7000 has only one autofocus point and it is slow to focus compared to more recent AF cameras. The Quantaray lens is probably crap, like most 3rd party zooms of the era. Minolta AF bodies are cheap, I'd get something more recent accompanied by a first-party lens.
>>
>>3479889
OK, thanks a lot, I'll steer clear

minolta maxxum 7000 tend to go for $15 to $25 and the kit 35-70 f4 lens is way better than any sigma/quantaray crap zoom.

I have an Olympus 35 SP with a strange issue I haven't been able to find any info on. It has some sort of unsharpness that looks like motion blur, but it appears even at the fastest shutter speed of 1/500.

It has the same 'J' shape each time, so I don't think it's actual hand shake. It's also the same over the whole frame so it's not a lens aberration either. The only thing I could think of is the shutter causing some sort of recoil in the lens elements, or maybe it's bouncing open at the end of the exposure?

This is a crappy picture but it illustrates the typical appearance of the problem.

I just had the shutter overhauled (due to it sticking at slow speeds), and it exhibited this both before and after. Anyone with this (or any leaf shutter camera) that's had a similar problem?

It's bretty good man the fixed 90mm is perfect for me since on 35mm it would be a 40mm, my favorite focal length. I was gonna get the 6x7 version but it was twice as much so I said fuck it and got the 6x9.

also have a 35SP, don't have this problem.

is everything in the frame J-shaped or just the out of focus bits?

something seems to be obstructing the light in your lens.
have you tried shooting a close up at f/1.7 with some lights in the background or something to get clear bokeh balls? that usually reveals everything: dust, separation, irregular apertures,...

if your aperture looks normal, it could be a shutter problem, like a sticky blade (though I've never encountered that myself and am also not sure how it would work mechanically)
>>
Have some Kodachrome 25.
I also have some ID11 and Rodinal, but I can buy something else if I have to.
Just looking for basic advice on how to shoot and develop this as b&w. I know I can't pull those lovely slides from it.

also, if anyone is seriously shooting 16mm. Kodachrome drop me a line. I won't shoot all of this myself.
>>
>>3479991
Everything has that same blur pattern, this picture is just the best I could find without someone's face in it. Even if it's in focus it has the same blurriness.

When I shoot wide open the bokeh looks like what I would expect: circular at the center and almond-shaped near the edges. Setting it on bulb and shining a flashlight through the lens shows some minor dust but that's it.

A stuck shutter blade might also explain it! Not sure if they're mechanically linked together or what. This problem doesn't seem to be an issue at slower speeds like 1/30. I took a high-speed video with my phone (240 fps) of the shutter and didn't see anything unusual, but it's such a minor effect it might be faster than it can see. Maybe I'll explain the issue to the camera shop and see if they can fix it under warranty.

Thanks for the response!

Hey /p/

just found a f3 for 130 bucks in my area, i recently bought the FA for really cheap...
thinking of to buy the f3 aswell and sell the FA later
i have the 50mm e series though
what do you think ?
>>
>>3480093
Just do it but keep the FA
>>
>>3480093

Do it, check the shutter speeds for accuracy and bring two button cell batteries to test it. It will likely need new seals.

50 Series E, one of Nikon's sharpest ever 50's. I absolutely loved mine on my first film camera, an FG. You will not be disappointed and for 130 bucks with the Series E you are doing pretty well. Jump on it
>>
Has anyone here ever cross processed c41 film in E6 chemistry? because my biggest concern is whether or not it would actually develop anything, I have been considering trying it on a roll of kodak ultramax that I forgot to develop about 5 months ago in some E6 that expired a while ago. I know I have nothing to lose I just want to know if any of you know if it is possible.
>>
>>3480097
i probably will
>>3480098
it's just the body itself, i own the 50mm from the FA i recently bought. seller says that shutter speeds sound correctly in the description. can't travel there and have to trust him
99% of the times the shipped stuff all worked
except once when the 90mm contax g lens had slightly fungus but it didn't bother me
and once the ricohs r1s display wasn't showing much
he also selling other camera stuffs...and a pakon 35mm scanner
so it's not a random person who sells junk but a photographer as usual. just messaged him, wish me luck guys :)
>>
>>3480109

130 for just the body I'd still jump on it

Hey so i got this fuji dl 95 super panorama which has drop in loading etc
Everything works as expected when the camera is empty, but when I put a roll in it, pulls the film up to 36exp (the film winds back as you shoot) but depressing the release button wont fire the shutter nor flash.
Timer wont work either.
It has new batteries in, help

is it possible to load Kaiser Reels into Paterson tanks ?
>>
>>3479991
I took some high-speed video and I think I found the issue. When the shutter opens the whole lens assembly is twitching since its connection to the body must not be quite tight. Since it only moves when the shutter opens it would explain why it got worse at faster shutter speeds.

Oddly, this doesn't happen if I use the self-timer.

I loved my FED 5c before I got soup all over it. More than the fed2 and 4 I also have. The Jupiter and industar l/d are great lenses and everyone who shits on the former ussr rangefinders are garbage label hounds

why use this when the trip 35 exists?
>>
>>3480261
It looks like the AP reel, which fits into Paterson tanks.
This store page says that it fits in Paterson tanks.
https://parallaxphotographic.coop/shop/kaiser-self-winding-reel/
>>
>>3480283
thank you alot man !
i wasn't sure about the AP brands matter though they look exactly like the kaiser ones..maybe their the exact same ones lol

planing on getting the bigger paterson tank for 3x 35mm (2x 120/220) capacity so now i have to buy only 1 more reel
>>
>>3480288
pretty sure AP, Kaiser, Hama and Hansa products are manufactured by the same company.

>What is your workflow? Are you using Vuescan or silverfast
I'm using Vuescan currently. I tried SIlverfast when I first got my 8100 and it sucked so much dick.
My workflow goes as such;
>preview scan
>adjust crop
>Auto levels
>Adjust black point
>Adjust white point
>save as 48bit RGB, 5300 dpi .tif file
>import to lightroom
>adjust tone curve if necessary
>+/- contrast, highlight, shadows, etc where necessary
>add sharpening
>export


>>3480051
Are you even more jelly that I got it for $750 aus bucks? Torrent Vuescan a go if our current software is giving you the shits

What would cause this? At first I thought the film, but it wasnt expired or left in the heat. Could it be the camera or is it most likely scanning that was done?

>Canon AE1 Program (Program mode with manual appurature settings)
>Kodak Gold 400 (in date from CVS)
>developing and scanning done at Walgreens ship out (they have done fine work before)

Every photo has similar separation. Especially with blues and yellows. Some more severe than others

I tried Vuescan and the results aren't any better, plus it's an absolute horror to use, on par with shoestring industrial ERP software.
>>
>>3480503
I have used industrial ERP software from the mid 1990s by a tiny company which went bankrupt around that time. The software had infinitely more polish. Vuescan is probably one of the funniest UIs I have seen in a long time. On par with some of the Chinese test equipment demo software.

I scan with xsane. The interface is clean and logical once you pick the logic up, but it looks like it came from 1998 (which is true) and hasn't been updated since (also true).

I always like to curse how scanning is a slog and a half, but then it turns out that I'm spending 15 minutes per 2 strips of 6 in 135, just getting un-tweaked scans in, where other scanners and programs apparently take even longer. Wasn't free software supposed to be worse than proprietary?
>>
>>3480365
What was the problem with Silverfast?
>>
>>3480634
xsane is really nice, but some printers can do wireless scanning, which is really great

Sup friends. What is an middle/high range M42 SLR that I can get that has split focus? I currently shoot on an ST605 and I love the thing, but it has a shutter problem that creates a leak like on pic related. Plus I don't like the 1/700 top shutter speed. I was thinking of going ST801 but I wanted to make sure I'm not overlooking anything.

Opinion on Canon ae1?
I can get it for 80 eurobucks with a 50 mm 1.8 and I'm really thinking about it.
>>
>>3480764
Bruh, look for an A-1. Shutter priority AND aperture priority + Fullauto. Also not as overmeme'd.

I got an AE-1 program a few weeks ago for $25 and am not feelin' it. it's shutter priority, with the exposure meter in f stops. has a weird workflow in manual, like you have to preset the lens aperture and then change shutter speeds until the meter needle matches the set aperture. otherwise you'd be lost as the meter doesn't react to aperture changes in the lens.
also, it's that exact one from the photo? I'd be worried about why it doesn't have a strap lug. I mean, that stuff usually only comes off if you take the camera apart.

Stupid question:
How much longer do I need to expose Adox CHM 100 when exposing 10 seconds, 30 seconds, 1 minute or two minutes?
>>
>>3481047
>Adox CHM 100
Do (metered time)^1.26, i.e. to the power of 1.26. That's per Ilford's spec sheet, that's the factor and formula they give.

So to answer your question,
10sec–––> 18sec
30sec–––> 72sec
60sec–––> 173sec (3min essentially)
>>
>>3481049
Thank you Anon, that was actualy heplfull.

New thread when?

Get a Praktica MTL 5 B. They are unreliable pieces of shit, but the shutter is 1/1000 top speed and there's split-prism focusing aid.

Hello, tonight there's a festival in my city.
There will be a night handcrafts fair and lots of street performances.
Also there will be people cooking and fire shows.
I want to document the night.
Should I push my film to 800 or 1600?
>>
>>3481324
1600, much more flexible to deal with, personally I find it quite annoying to be worrying about whether or not I can get by with shutter speed.
>>
>>3481330
OK, that seems reasonable, any suggestions to let's say, take a pic of a singer backed by spotlights??
>>
>>3481236
Yh, dis plz
>>
>>3480967
Are your filters new or used?
Why didn't you use grade 5?
What was your exposure time for each filter?
>>
>>3480365
I prefer VueScan too. But for colour Silverfast is the way to go.
>>
How far can I push Adox CHM 100 with Atomal 49 by extending development time?
I forgot to bring any faster film and have some realy dark shots coming up.
At least I've got my f/1.7, but I'm not sure if that's enough.
With schwazschild compensation I'm looking at about 1000 seconds exposure, 240 without and that is not exactly practical.
>>
>>3481453
Pushing won't counter reciprocity failure. At best it'll move the exposed bits to higher density, but where there's nothing exposed besides the noise floor (grain floor), pushing only brings the floor higher.

If anything you'd want to pull long exposures to reduce contrast. IOW: you're boned, settle down for 1000 seconds twice and go home.
>>
>>3481472
My issue is:
Stopping the earth from rotating for 1000 seconds is far from practical.
However I noticed I'm fucked anyway as the full moon is up untill sunrise.
