It seems like the 'loop' attribute wasn't set. What program were you using to make it?
>>
>>3485475
I do animated GIFs it with GIMP. Open all frames as separate layers, repeat as necessary to make it go back to frame 1. Under the "Filters" menu there's an "Animate" submenu. Select the "Optimize (for GIF)" option and then Export the file as a .gif. if I recall correctly you get an options menu before saving where you can set the frame rate. Set it to something slower so it doesn't spaz back and forth so fast.

I was using photoshop and the "loop forever" option was selected. I saw a YouTube video which said that it needed to be under 1mb to loop, and since the 3rd test works I guess that was the thing.

Much of the time these four-lens gimmick gifs are made so that while the GIF loops back to front, the frames are presented in order of 0-1-2-3-2-1, to have it appear to go ping-pong instead of wrapping back.

I bought a few film cameras, all of them were shit. A ricoh ff 3, olympus om, Yashica lynx 5000E, a garbage point and shoot from samsung and a 60's plastic lense camera. I'm sick of all these garbage cameras and wasting money on them. Recommend me a good camera for 100 euros maximum. It has to shoot 35mm film and have batteries that are somewhat easy to find. Doesnt need to need batteries though. Also this is for a beginner so no hard to use/learn stuff.

Minolta X-700 in good condition, or Pentax SP1000 etc. (Fully mechanical unless you get an illegal mercury battery for the meter). All film cameras are getting old and will have issues if you don't take care of them, though some are more infamous than others. Don't buy from a thrift store unless it's pristine.

I wish people were selling expired film around me, every time I tell people I'm shooting film they think im joking.

for 4 british moneys a pop I'd pass, but that's just because that's the price of fresh stock around here and also because I've had real bad results with expired konica brand color film, like totally fogged and blue/magenta color shifted, but I can't find my scans to post so w/e.
if anything, try the konica minolta branded one first.
>>
>>3485827
It looks blurrier on the left than on the right.
How's the rails and lensbed looking? Do they extend properly all the way? Any play? Do they look loose/bent?

Aso keep in mind at 105mm and 6x9, DoF is a bitch, you need to stop down quite a bit more than 35mm for equivalent DoF.
>>
>>3485828
>>3485827
Any good answer would have to be with the knowledge of your chosen aperture and what kind of lens it was. If it was your shitty 3 element lens, then this looks about right, but it could also be film scanned very unevenly on a flatbed.
>>
anyone have experience with the konica c35? found one locally for $25

depends on how it was stored, could be complete trash, could still be somewhat usable exposed as if it were ISO 50.

that one is a canon lens or 3rd party lens? if it's canon, then that one alone is worth the $200 price. I think it goes for way more than that nowadays lol. fast wide angle lenses are expensive.

Konica Autoreflex T2/T3. Built like a wrecking ball with a metal bladed shutter that won't die before you do, has excellent glass, and no need for batteries. Free of hipster or brand tax. Great camera to learn exposure values as you will have to dial them in manually.

Or if you really need a light meter and auto mode, any Minolta X-series will do just fine. XG9 is also good and overlooked, but avoid XG-M, they seem to be riddled with QC problems.

Does anyone else find that the smaller and easier to use the camera is, the more snapshits they take? I bought an Olympus XA a few days ago and I'm almost on my third roll.
>>
>>3486113
I take snapshits either way.
But it's OK.
You gotta take pics in order to get good
>>
>>3486113
The smaller and lighter a camera is, the more I tend to have it on me when a snapshottin' mood strikes. Just today I'd finished a roll of Delta 400 in my Leica, and couldn't be arsed to reload, so I kept shooting with a zone-focus autoexposure compact. Since the latter snapshits will be, redundantly, later, I expect there'll be more keepers in there. (or the lone keeper of the day.)

The lesson is, keep a good camera on you for snapshitting. Some of them snaps still turn out nice, so don't waste 'em. At the same time a Leica is hardly a "stoned wander through some woody bits" kind of camera, so maybe there's something to be said to having both Serious Camera and Snapshitting Sidepiece.

Here's a good guide to get you started on shooting without a meter. The hardest thing is to learn when your eyes deceive you and adjust accordingly.

>>
>>3486130
First off, snatch it, it's a great price for a working Retina II.
About metering, get an app on your phone or a lightmeter. Tbh I think a lightmeter that does incident and flash for 100$ is a much better investment than yet another camera or lens, and can be used with any camera and any kind of photography.

Have you asked him?

Also mainly looks like shooting without wb correction filters (that's where most of that color comes from, either fluorescent and tungsten and sodium lights)and overrating the hell out of something like a portra 800.

Yes, provided it's the appropriate wattage. Still, do your safelight check with spare paper to see how much fogging you can expect. You really need to match your safelight to your paper. I've got an ilford 902 as my indirect and the ilford sl1 as my direct in the adjacent room. I'm using ilford multigrade IV pearl and can run close to 10 minutes without visible fogging.

Here is tonight's effort. Not happy at the moment as I've not reached max black. I've tried then lens stopped down all the way but my enlarger doesn't have the oomph to expose as reasonable times. Meh, back to 5.6 I go

looking for the ultimate carry-anywhere 35mm

so far looking at an Olympus XA, XA2 or MJU II.

Any other recommendations?

All three are great options, it really depends on what you want in a camera. I'd say get either the Mju ii or if you can a XA3 as it's a XA2 that can meter up to 1600 instead of 800. I have owned the original XA in the past but I don't think I'm knowledgeable enough to share an opinion of it.

Mju ii
pros
>faster lens
>weather sealed
>flash without adding extra size
>close focus

cons
>small viewfinder
>lens super soft in corners at certain apertures
>noisy film advance
>flash setting off doesn't stay off if you turn the camera off and on again
>AF sometimes misses

XA3
pros
>sharp af lens
>shots always in focus bc zone focus
>quiet shutter
>manual film advance
>put tape on the DX code contact lets you manually set the ASA of your film
>huge viewfinder

cons
>slower lens
>prioritizes tighter apertures even in low light so shutter speed is slow
>adding flash makes the camera bigger
>most flashes for the XA series are broken
>minimum focus is 1 meter

I like Both my XA3 and my Mju II and use them for different occasions.

The only problem is they are pricey now, used to be they could be found for 3 bucks at a thrift store before hipsters taxed them. XA is a solid camera though, just gave one to my best friend.

Speaking of the XA3 (and XA2), how different is the lens compared to the original XA, and can it do in between focus?

Have an original XA, but don’t like the lens - it’s just too soft for me. I’ve been shooting a ton on a Lomo LCA though so maybe a later XA could be cool.

Anyone try Fujifilm Superia Venus? I want to try some since Fuji decided to kill it.

I'd have to import it though, not sure if it's worth the cost.

>how different is the lens compared to the original XA
Like I said before I didn't have much experience with the XA and I didn't note down which rolls I shot with it but I remember finding the images form the XA to be a bit softer than the images I get from XA3. pic related was shot on the XA3.

>and can it do in between focus?
I'm not entirely sure what you mean by this. Do you mean can you put the zonefocus lever in between two points of the zonefocus and still take a photo? If so then yes.

I've got a XA, XA1 and XA4 coming in the mail, will definitely share my experience with them when I've used them enough. Am super pumped to try out the XA4

Bought Pentax Asahi ME as my first film camera. Turned out it has broken light meter, and auto mode doesn't work. Since this model do not have manual settings, I am forced to shoot as fixed 1/100 shutter speed. Went to develop my first photos to see how it is, any feedback appreciated.

>I'm not entirely sure what you mean by this. Do you mean can you put the zonefocus lever in between two points of the zonefocus and still take a photo? If so then yes.

Exactly this. I do it quite often on the LCA if it’s darker and I know it won’t stop down as much. For example if I know I’m closer to 1m than 1,5m or 2m rather than 3m.

I’m also considering replacing the XA with a Rollei 35 or something similar. I just feel like it’s an overhyped camera and too slow to use as a compact, plus the square aperture ruins some photos. I have a bunch of compacts and there’s really nothing the XA does better than others, it’s just small.

Anyone here develop their black and white film with that new Cinestill DF96 developer + fixer chemical? I've heard that it adds contrast to your film and I do not like too much contrast in my images.

For USA folks, where are you getting your C41 film developed and scanned? Dwaynes Photo seems to have the best price but I still find them a little unaffordable for the volume I would like to shoot. For reference, their price is $15 for C‐41 development + high resolution scanning (~4k x 6k pixels). $18 if you include 4"x6" prints. Their return shipping and handling is $5.00 for the first roll and $0.50 for each additional roll.

If you're doing it in bulk and have the room for it, dev it yourself. Only quirk to c41 is that it's more temperature sensitive, but it's not hard to manage it.

DF96 is not worth it, as it is more sensitive to temperature fluctuations. Better to just get separate dev and fix.

I agree with this so much. A compact should have little features and be super easy to use. That Contax TVSii from the >>3486360 imo fails at being a P&S just for the simple fact that you have too much option. Like why would I want to have that much option on a P&S when I can just use my Ricoh XR-7? Like I said before a compact should be a brain dead easy to use camera and you know actually compact? The XA3 and Mju II achieve this brilliantly

What film should I take with me?
I have a OM-1 +50mm 1.4

Also for those who have been to Japan, are there any stores that I should visit for comfy used cameras / film / dev?
>>
>>3486925
Pro 400H or Superia for C-41. Developing is affordable in Japan, but many labs don't really want to process Kodak. There's some technical issue which I didn't really understand when they tried to explain it. Everything not Fuji generally costs a lot in Japan.

The usual place for films, dev, and getting your stuff developed is Yodobashi, which has stores in all notable cities. Don't forget that as a tourist you're entitled to VAT refund. Forget about the tiny gear shops, they are insanely expensive, you're better off with Ebay. In Akihabara on Sundays they open up some garages where baskets of old gear is sold for potato prices, it's worth checking out.

Also beware of the Yodobashi in-store jingle, that shit will haunt you to your grave.

and one more. both shot at f11 I think.

pretty damn soft at 1.8, much sharper at f2.8 but still a little bit of smear and falloff. not disappointed for a 60 year old lens though, definitely out-resolving the grain at anything above f4

excited to take some actual photos with it that I didn't shoot quickly on my lunchbreak

Most refuse.

They claim Kodak c41 uses different chemicals and it wont come out right when done with their Fuji machines. It is absolute BS, but I think it is probably due to some sort of leasing agreement with Fuji.

>Everything not Fuji generally costs a lot in Japan.

Pretty much double.

>The usual place for films, dev, and getting your stuff developed is Yodobashi, which has stores in all notable cities.

I had better luck at Camera no Naniwa. They would actually do one-hour dev with kodak films.

>Don't forget that as a tourist you're entitled to VAT refund.

And a student discount if you have a student ID. ~500円 for one hour dev. Not sure if they accept foreign student IDs though.

>>3486925

Camera no Naniwa, Camera no Kitamura, Yodobashi Camera. All stores like this will develop film.

As for used stuff, I think Japan Camera Hunter has a good guide on shops in Tokyo.

>>3486977
>Kodak c41
Why in the hell would anyone shoot c41 in present day? There has never been a good c41 film. The only reason anyone used it back in the day is because it was more forgiving for exposure fuckups. If you're not shooting slide film, you might as well just use digital.
>>
>>3486968
>>3486969
>Canon 35mm f1.8
Yo these are nice! I have the 35mm f/2 and it's pretty much glued to my Canon P, small as fuck, sharp as fuck it's not called the "Japanese Summicron" for no reason. Wouldn't mind trying out the f/1.8 sometime I hope you enjoy it. Pic related was shot with the 35mm f/2 at f/8, it's not a good shot but it shows off the sharpness of the lens.

>>3486999
While I do somewhat agree with you you're very limited with choice/film speed when shooting slide. Provia 100f, Velvia 50, Velvia 100 and Ektachrome are your only options for slide. If you wan't higher speed colour films your only option is c41 with Portra 400/800, Superia 400/800 and Cinestill 800, etc. Also I might add that c41 pushes better than slide in my personal experience.
>The only reason anyone used it back in the day is because it was more forgiving for exposure fuckups.
How is this not applied to today as well? I Sunny16 99% of the time, I only use my Sekonic when I've shooting slide film.

I rarely shoot c41 anymore and if I do it's only with my Mju ii at parties or where I'd need flash (Usually Superia Venus 800 or Kodak Gold 400). If I want to shoot colour in the day it's always Provia 100f , although I do have some Ektar and Portra in 120 I'd like to try out.

But with all of that being said I'd recommend >>3486925 to shoot Provia 100f and Superia Venus 800 if they can find it

It does apply, but the quality of color negative film is abysmal. It can't understand why anyone would deliberately use shitty film just to get a few extra stops of latitude when you could just use a modern digital camera with good latitude, excellent metering, and vastly better overall image quality. If you're going to be lazy, go all the way.

OM1 is fully mechanical. the battery is just for the light meter, you can use the camera without it but it really is a convenience to have the ligth meter working. you can use a 675 hearing-aid cell for it. they are sold in every supermarket or drugstore.

The irony is that orange-masked colour negative film is more colour accurate than slides, and this has always been the case - and the reason the orange mask exists.

you can't burn out that kind of meter (CdS cells) by using the wrong battery, can you? there's a negligible difference between the original mercury battery and whatever flavor of lr44/sr44 someone might have popped inside an OM1.

Like RPX 400 but less grainy and without the glacial dev time that 400 requires.
>>
>>3487341
it only took 8 mins to dev, not bad. also gives me the option to push or pull to 800 or 100 respectively. your picture on rpx100?

Going to look at several cameras tomorow including a Nikon LiteTouch 28mm, MJU 1, L35AF, Canonet 28 and XA2. these cameras all interest me massively, but does /p/ have any recommendations or things to look out for to help me narrow it down? Intend to walk away with 2 or 3.

Even though it is super memey, I find Portra 400 to make a good general use film.

It is what I shoot most often now that Provia 400 is dead. The 100 films just don't push well enough for me.

You can still get one hour dev in many places, but not always for Kodak as has been said. Slide film is still processed as well, but takes several days. For used cameras there’s a lot of options but expect to be paying quite a bit. Not many good deals to be found anymore.

Also unless I’m not wrong (never been there during summer) you’re gonna sweat your balls off. Maybe throw a few silica packs into your bags as well as a safety measure.
>>
>>3487556
Get a Hasselblad EL/M and a battery adapter.

I'd highly recommend it, the noisy winding/focusing is the only thing that kinda grates on me since most of my gear is mechanical -- but the lens is great, composing in portrait by default is comfy as hell, and the focal length is perfect for wandering and snapping.

I posted a few taken with it earlier

Going to submit this to an photography contest in my city tomorrow. What do you guys think?
>>
>>3487804
Nice bobs.
Otherwise I feel either the light is too minimal or used at a bad angle. I can see a sillhouette, and she seems to be making some sort of emotional expression, but I can't really make it out. And as for the rest it looks like one huge boob is coming out of the middle of her chest and then there's some bokeh noise in the background. Personally I would have the light come in a little higher so I could see her expression and have a clearer picture of her sillhouettte, and hang a black drape over whatever is in the background as it isn't adding anything and is distracting.
But yeah nice pic I like it.

I wanna get a Mamiya 645 pro for casual shooting. I have a Pentax digital spotmeter and I already shoot large format. Anything I should know? Opinions about this camera?
>>
>>3487882
Not really. It's a good camera. Someone will surely complain that 6x4.5 is too small to be real medium format, but fuck them. It's a great compromise between the handling of a 35mm camera and a larger film format.

>>3487800
Did you pass that drug test?
>>
>>3487882
Watch out for the plastic Pros. The mirror stop which helps absorb shock and also keep the mirror at the correct angle for focusing is known to break because it's made of plastic. Apparently that part is hard to come by and something of a pain to replace.

You might want to consider the sturdier 1000S, though it doesn't have a removable back.
>>
>>3487882
>>3487988
Also watch out for the plastic Supers: the motor drive and/or some linkage in between will bork itself after about this long from manufacture. Nylon gears suspected, but I've not confirmed -- it could just as well be goofy 80s technology like powerful electric motors that beat themselves and everything around them to death as part of normal operation.

Is a Mamiya C33 with the 80mm f2.8 lens for $180 a good buy? It appears to be in good condition and it comes with caps, a lens hood, an L grip, and 8 rolls of film. The seller claims there are no light leaks and that it's fully functional.

Little addenum: before this roll I developed 3x Fomapan 400 films. They felt, for the lack of better word, powdery in my hands. I'm afraid it really went into the chemistry. I used it for 9 rolls so far, would filtering let me use it for few more?

I like how 2 and 3 came out.
it's just that I feel they need a bit more contrast. the photos look too flat gray all over.

>>3488614
Fingers crossed.

>>3488623
Get one of those pump spray bottles, fill it with distilled water and spray your film when you hang it up to dry. Doing so avoids water spots/drying marks and possible harm to your film. Furthermore, you don't have to use photoflo.

Tough luck, not leaving.
Doubling down, getting shit to develop my own film and scan.
It'll take a while but I'll get there.
Thanks for the hatred tho.

plastic tank/reels vs steel tank/reels for film development? does it make a difference or should I even care about it? like for chemistry efficiency or whatnot. seems like plastic is more convenient with the ratcheting film loading reels but I've never used those steel reels so dunno.
I'm trying to save some money getting a dev tank and bulk film loader from the same seller but the tank will be whatever they have in stock at the moment.
>>

>plastic tank/reels vs steel tank/reels for film development?
Plastic reals are better imo. I have three different metal reels, all of which are only big enough to fit exactly (and I mean exactly) 36 frames on them. I get around 37-39 exposures from my XA3 so there's always a frame or two hanging loosely from the reel. Plastic reels always have enough room, the only down side to them is that if you're bulk developing you have to make sure the reel is completely dry before loading the next roll.

>any advice and recommendations?
Stop cucking yourself at the lab and develop black and white at home

>plastic tank/reels vs steel tank/reels for film development?

plastic - the ratcheting reels work well when they are dry and clear of any residue. the tanks and lids are less likely to leak.

metal - my metal reels are shorter than my plastic ones - I keep small scissors inside in my changing bag in case I need to cut the leader short. metal tanks leak more if you abuse (drop) them. metal reels are far easier to clean.

I personally use plastic (Patterson, Jobo) for 35mm and stainless for 120 and 220.
>>
>>3488802
>>3488805
thanks friends. seems like I'm going to wait for a plastic tank/reel system to get in stock then.
I'm always getting 37-38 exposures so plastic reels seems more convenient, and also because the metal tanks they have in stock are used. don't wanna risk getting a banged tank that leaks.

How is the 45mm 2.8 XR ?

I want a pancake lense for my SLR (Pentax) and I've been wondering about this lens.
The Pentax M 40mm is also an option bur it's a bit pricey

>Pick one.
Kek, well it surely can't be slower than my 4x5 setup. Besides, I keep my Pentax digital spotmeter around my neck, it's super fast especially with negative film.
>>3487904
Yea, 135 is too small, 6x7 or more too much/expensive. 645 seems to be the happy medium.
>>3487988
>Watch out for the plastic Pros
How do I recognize them on ebay?

Anyway, how about a Zenza Bronica etrs? Keep in mind I'm fine with a single lens only, most likely 80/2.8.

looking at buying a mamiya 7 for my first medium format camera. the price on it is good considering how expensive it is. anyone have any advice for when checking it out and then using it?
>>
>>3488943
you need to solder it back together. that's a conductive brass plate that completes the battery circuit, glue would be an insulator.
some conductive copper foil tape would do the trick too.

The XR Rikenon is even more expensive than the Pentax SMC 40mm. The lens is very nice and easy to focus, reminds me of a rangefinder lens with infinity being on the other side to most SLR lenses.
You do have a few other options for PK mount pancake lenses, there's the Cosina Cosinon 40mm F/2.5 (rebranded as Vivitar, Chinon and Porst Color Reflex) and the Auto Revuenon 45mm f/2.8 Auto Chinon 45mm f/2.8.

Thinking about going full meme mode and getting the Pentax FA 43mm f1.9 Limited

Got my P67 back from repair, unfortunately seems like the mechanism that disengages the shutter when advancing at the beginning and end of the film couldn’t be repaired, so I have to keep shooting blanks at the beginning and end of the film.

Opinions on the Rollei 35 series? Which ones are the ones to look out for? Have you had one, and if you didn’t keep it, why? What did you replace it with?

Thinking of letting a few cameras go that I don’t gel with, such as the XA, and replacing them with something different. Shoot mostly bw & street, not afraid of zone focusing.

Asking macodirect or fotoimpex for a bulk discount

I live in a northern european country and am about to put an order in from either Macodirect or Fotoimpex for around 60 rolls of film. This is going to cost around 370-380€, and with Fotoimpex I don't get free shipping- which macodirect offers.

Has anyone tried emailing a european store for a discount or free shipping or would it be rude?
>>
>>3489646
It's a bit rude given that Macodirect's pricing is already "10 and up", plus free shipping after a certain price. In any case both of those companies are already very competitive in terms of price, so I don't think you'll have much luck there. Might not hurt to ask whether Fotoimpex would like to match Maco's prices for a given quantity, or the reverse.
>>
>>3489649
>>3489646

Indeed, that was for the camera and lenses. I'd wish I could get all this film for 20 euros. Still, I get ColorPlus for less than €3 a roll. Those 10-packs of Ilford PAN also work out to €4 per roll.
>>
>>3489628
We euros don't get good film easily. The best deal I can get is 3 rolls of Gold 200 for 8 euro, which is fantastic but I'm sick of shooting gold. The only other options on my local chain pharmacists shelf are Colorplus 200 for 5 euro (worse than Gold 200 for double the price) and 24'er Ultramax 400. Maybe APX 100 if you're lucky (which is somehow really grainy for a slow speed B/W film).

If you want any of the good shit you have to go online and order in advance. No picking up a nice roll of something good for a sunny day.

Want to start developing b&w photo and two local ads have some shit to start with. Both ads is up since almost two months so i will negotiate.

First kit is pic related. Pentax mz-7 with sigma 70-300, Holga diffuser I think with gralab timer and other miscellaneous thing for 200$

Other kit is Saunders LPL C6600 condenser with a timer, plastic bins, and various other things for 360$

Nikon's F-501, F-301, F-801. Or the US names for 'em. Entry-level and hence a bit shit, often selling for like 50€, but generally work and robust enough for the camera you set aside in favour of a F3 or something. Also if you're a poorfag from a land of poorfags, consider the running costs first before going film.

Differentfag here, hi. I think your best bet at this point is looking at film cameras on the internet, such as basically everything on camera-wiki.org .

Also differentfag but as for Soviet cameras, I've had four so far and out of them all three died suddenly without warning within three rolls (Zenit TTL, Zorki-4 and FED-5b). The fourth (Kiev 60) sort of works so far, but requires service (1/1000 shutter speed doesn't work and frame spacer mechanism is busted).

Pic unrelated, just recently scanned stuff.
