>>3965163any tips for mounting 35mm film to the wheel? I can effortlessly do 120 but 135 always bends and detaches from the guides
I plan to test my stand developer by shooting a 120 roll of 100ISO film at 1, 3, 6, 12, 25, 50, 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600 and 3200.will the 6mL of developer be enough for this extreme test case? I know you can recover a lot, but isn’t the extreme brightness that I will achieve when shooting at low pretended ISO eat up everything and leave the other frames badly developed?
>>3965184Diffusion is way too slow for that to happen
>110 filmAnyone shooting this? I've got a pair of cameras of this format but it's hard to find film available without 2 month shipping. Is it even worth it to shoot for fun?
>>3965317Get a kiev 30 and a bulk roll of any 16mm film
>>3965317I have an old Kodak Trimlite Instamatic. I'm working on getting the film developed, so I can't speak mich about the film itself. Currently, Lomography is the only reliable producer of 110 film. I enjoy the true "point and shoot" nature of my Kodak, but there are 110 cameras with more options, some with selectable aperture and shutter speeds. Most will be just straight foward focus, point, shoot pictures. These were the cameras for families to take anywhere to capture moments at any time. The photo quality is going to be very lo-fi and not as much information is captured vs 35mm. For a standard sized photo print it should be fine, but it would look noticeably shit if you blew it up to poster size. If you get into 110, just have it as something for fun, not for serious work unless you're just after that lo-fi aesthetic. They're fun, cheap, and plentiful
How do I develop 16mm on my own? I have a paterson tank but no reel that takes 16mm. Any way to jerry rig it?
>>3965329You need a special reel and tank because of how long the film is, and the only home developers of movie film were the soviets, everyone else let labs do it for them. Look up lomo 16mm tanks, its the easiest way to develop your own film unless you wanna diy a solution.

Alright, so I finally got my color enlarger set up. Here's the first one I was satisfied with.

>>3965163I have one of these but the shutter won't fire, it's too bad
>>3965380How did you screw it up that badly? Did you just throw the whole film cartridge into the developer?I have room-temperature IQ and I was able to work my Paterson reel after a few YT videos and a few forum threads.
>>3965526I've had many successfully developed rolls before, it's not that I can't do it. But I was too tired. Many things went wrong. First, in camera, the film was not advancing correctly; there are many overlapping frames. Second, I was using the new changing bag I bought for the second time, and forgot to close it properly (did only the zipper, not the velcro). Halfway through asked my brother to close the velcro. Third, I had an awful time getting the film on the reel, for some weird reason. So I was there, hands in the dark bag in frustration for a good 15 minutes, then went to the toilet and finished the job there and probably got some more light on the film. Fourth, I had 2 reels in the tank, one with this 35mm roll and a 110-modded one with a little strip of respooled 110 film (cut down from 120) which was too thin and fell out of the reel during development and probably was touching other film (came out blank).So yeah, that's the story. Being exhausted cuts IQ in half.
>>3965531Sucks man. I know that feeling of getting frustrated and wanting to try force it through, but not being able to because that will crease the film and ruin a frame.
>>3965380ive done that too. now its no drinkytime before trying to develop.

>>3965380I like this picture a lot. It has a feeling of movement like it's a film strip going through a projector. And the dark masked part has a nice shape and continuity through the separate frames.
Alright guys, I just got into analog cameras and filled up my first ever analog roll (35mm, color). Do you develop and scan your pictures yourself?I am thinking about developing my roll in some drug store for cheap money and digitilizing it in a more expensive photo lab because the drug store scans are supposedly crap.
>>3965727Chances are the drug store just sends your film to a lab and charges you markup for it.
>>3965727if you're going to make a hobby of it, just buy your own flatbed scanner. a epson v550 should only cost you like $100. it gives you more control over the digitization, and it'll pay for itself after like 20 rolls, even fewer if you value your time and gas
>>3965733Drug store prices are a lot cheaper though>>3965745>buying own flatbed scannerThat sounds like I would give up a lot of quality just to have my own scanner. I imagine that photo labs will have some expensive scanner that will beat a 100$ flatbed scanner.
>>3965749>I imagine that photo labs will have some expensive scanner that will beat a 100$ flatbed scanner.You're lucky if you get your negatives and a 12 megapixel scan back from a drugstore.
>>3965749some do have really good scanners, but you have to pay out the ass for S-quality scans, and if you're not going to blow them up to be window-sized pieces or bigger you likely won't notice the difference in any functional way.>>3965752this
>>3965756But I will stiill need to develop the film, right?
>>3965759Only cine film, modern photo film can be developed with hot water, it prints the image into the potassium nitrite and all you need is to wash the opaque anti halation layer off.
>>3965759Color kits can be expensive and you have to do large batches of film to not waste it because they have a short shelf life once mixed. Someone else would have to calculate the break even on a kit and scanner vs. sending it off because I can't be bothered. For me, it's something like 15-30 cents a photo for black and white and the break even was 10 rolls. 2 to 10 dollars a print in the darkroom, any size.
I have managed to get some kodak technical film for next to nothing. (5302 and 2556) I was wondering if there is anyway I can shoot this at a reasonable ISO and still get decent images out of them?
>>3965775why would you waste them shooting in an improper way instead of just getting a tripod?
>>3965775how do I get kodak technical film for next to nothing?
>>3965782I do have a tripod, and I have 30m rolls of them, so I have plenty to shoot. I was more just curious to see if it was possible. I think they are like 5-6 ISO or something like that. I also wouldn't know how to develop it, maybe stand with rodinal? What would you suggest?
>>3965788It was luck, knew someone that offered them to me first before trying to sell them online.
>>3965765>modern photo film can be developed with hot waterwut
>>3965163Anon from last thread who accidentally souped portra 160 in rodinal here. Glad to report that the negs came out fully usable. A little thick negs, but easily saveable in post. And someone said I should expect big grain, cannot agree with that at all. Grain is pretty similar in size to Ilford delta 100, very small and good looking. And I feel like the negs retained even slightly better shadow detail as delta would have. From these it's hard to see any other reason than price not to use c41 film as bw too.
>>3965772Meh, 40 bucks for a cs41 powder kit that gets you at least 24 devs isnt that expensive imo
>>3965765what the fuck are you on about?first, modern photo film needs a development process that involves a lot more than just hot water. second, even if it were only hot water involved in the development process of *any* film (which is not the case) that's still a developmental process...
>>3965727drug store wont give your negatives back
im going to solo motorcycle trip india and south asia and i want to take one film camera. im torn between:>mamiya 6 + 50mm f/4>bessa r2a + some 35mm lensthe square format would be great for how i use the images. the goddamn camera is big to carry though and that's a lot of film. im shooting landscape and street, probably ilford hp5+ purchased in some huge quantity.ill shoot everything the same way, meter with aperture priority. undecided if ill shoot at box speed or underexpose and push.
>>3966047the r3a + 40mm lens is really tempting too as i like the 1:1 magnification
>>3965789I would suggest trying some rolls at box speed first and develop them nominally. At 5 ISO you can probably shoot them at 50 ISO and develop them with 1+100 Rodinal for 1h30m.Just yesterday I tested stand development with my FP4 and this frame was over exposed by 7 stops (FP4 is 125 ISO but I exposed for 1 ISO) and the image still came out with a bit of help from the scanner software.[EXIF data available.

>>3966050canon p has a 1:1 viewfinder but the 35mm frame lines are hard to see at that mag
do you guys use proper light meters or just the one inbuilt into your camera?i've just gotten into shooting with a k1000 and I seem to keep exposing for the highlights and getting really dark shadows. Is exposing for midtones simply just a practice of pointing the camera at the midtones for more even exposure?
>>3966058how does this relate to his question?
>>3966058the canon p looks great and i have a similar camera. but i want the aperture priority mode for this purpose
>>3965994If youre using old expired film yea, the new stuff just needs to be rinsed
>>3966067>do you guys use proper light meters or just the one inbuilt into your camera?if i had one built into my camera, id probably use it every time.
i fucking hate external meters
So what is a good "pocketable" medium format?I have something similar to this (same Foldex brand just a later model) but was wondering if there was something more modern with a faster lens and more shutter options
>>3966134are you stupid?
>>3966067>>3966141You'll never match TTL metering from your camera body with an external meter. That's why it completely changed the industry after it was developed.I picked up an old Zenit B camera for the Helios 44-2 lens attached to it, but I'm tempted to shoot a few rolls with it just for funsies. The need for an external meter is holding me back, even though I have one.
>>3966162He's a troll. No way someone can be this dumb
>>3966160you can't put a medium format camera in your pocket unless you're an egg shaped russian kid with a rape jacket
>>3966173>No way someone can be this dumbthere are some severely disfuctional people who post on this board. they don't read. i think they just make things up and type them into the internet

>>3966163im not sure what you just said but external metering slows me down a lot

Alright, I'm dead broke but want to get into 35mm photography, from my research my best option would be to go thrifting looking for a cheap functioning SLR or sniping auctions on ebay.Is there any like cheap solid model I should be looking for on auction sites and similar places, my budget is literally as low as you can go and in terms of functions, I don't need anything fancy, manual everything is fine with me, I just need something to learn on.From my understanding a lot of people go with black and white film due to the relative ease and so lower cost of developing the film at home compared to sending it off to a film lab especially in the long term, and buying older, potentially expired film can reduce the cost even further.Just wanted to make sure my assumptions where correct and to see if you guys have any recommendations.Might be also partially doing this because I bet against a friend that I could get higher quality images from a cheap film camera than you could get from those shitty point and shoot digital cameras you find in every pawn shop and do so cost effectively.
>>3966224You’re gonna get swallowed by MF film and dev prices if you think $1000 is too much. Not trying to be mean just saying.
>>3966338EOS 300 can be had for 30 bucks and fits any ef lens
>>3966343Wow thanks this seems like exactly what I'm looking for
>>3966339I'm well aware mf isn't cheapI have a local place that will develop for $6 a roll for color and like 30 cents for each print, so that makes it more palatable
>>3966372$6 development probably isn’t worth $6 but godspeed anon. Shooting film in 2021 isn’t a value proposition.

>>3966562They are also sideways. This one looks moved, I think you used too low a shutter speed for handheld shooting. If you don't give more info on how your pics were taken, though, there isn't much we can do.
>>3966566Yeah, handheld shooting. I don't know if the light sensor is broken or if it's supposed to be like that, but it feels like the camera selects a slow shutter speed, even in well lit rooms. The camera selects 1/30 in a well lit room, I didn't pay much attention on it when I took the pictures. Quite an expensive realization. What shutter speeds should I use for handheld shooting? I heard that anything above 1/90 is good for handheld shooting.I am using a EOS500 with Kodak Ultramax 400.[EXIF data available.

>>3966570>What shutter speeds should I use for handheld shooting? I heard that anything above 1/90 is good for handheld shooting.Depends on your lens. On a 50mm, 1/60 or faster is good, on a 100mm you'll want 1/125 at least, etc.A well lit room can be pretty dark for 400 ISO, human eyes are really good at capturing light. Learn how the aperture triangle works and how to use your camera. And start fixing the orientation when you post.
>>3966570Your pics look like they're all taken in low light. If you're not shooting in bright daylight then your camera's automatic exposure settings are going to select slower shutter speeds and wider apertures. Try using shutter priority mode and manually setting the shutter speed to something that's not blurry. But night pictures like this may be impossible without faster lens and film.like >>3966595 said, the general rule for handheld shutter speed is at least 1 divided by the focal length of the lens. below that will be too hard to hold steady without a tripod. higher is preferable. you can also practice techniques to hold the camera steadier like picrel
>>3965389what did you do to get this effect? print ot on an ink jet printer then scan it again
>>3965392all of these look great
>>3966555Judging by this photo alone, you have no meaningful grasp of composition or exposure. I’m sure that’s not true though, and this just a bad example. Here’s what I recommend:>Shoot a roll of film trying to do everything perfect/by the book. This means loading the film carefully into a clean camera, finding a single subject for every photo, composing every photo using known “rules” instead of what might look cool in the moment, using a dedicated light meter for EVERY SINGLE EXPOSURE, setting exposure carefully, using a tripod anytime your shutter speed goes below 1/250, recomposing with your exposure set,and release the shutter with a sense of finality (don’t hesitate/squeeze the shit out of your camera/jerk your head away immediately afterward). Write down settings used for every exposure so you can go over it later.>send the film to a lab that yields consistent results, and buy prints from them as well. Yeah, developing and scanning your own film is better in just about every single way, but if you’re asking why your photos suck I doubt you’re capable of making a good contact sheet/print, which is important for troubleshooting why your photos suck. You can keep doing your own developing and scanning, but send this roll away to reduce variables until you’re confident the problem lies in either the developing or scanning process.>go through your whole roll of prints, systematically setting aside everything that looks like total shit. At the end you should have a pile of photos you know to be total shit, and a pile of photos with enough things right to save them. There are probably no good photos in either pile, and there are certainly no great photos in either pile. Look through both piles and think about what makes each photo belong to its respective pile. What could be done to move it into the other one.>repeat this process until there is no pile of total shit.If you do this, you will learn. Stop avoiding the fundamentals.
>>3966595You can get away with a few speeds slower than recommended if your camera doesn't vibrate much. I can get away with shooting 1/30 and even 1/15 on my Leica M6 with a 50mm.
>>3966570 (this one seems to be in focus)>>3966562>>3966555low res scans+out of focus+not using a tripod while shooting that slow
I just got a canon 2x-b extender, I know this also doubles the apeture as well, but will I have to manually account for this? or will it still work in auto mode?
>>39667091/250 floor is aggressive
>>3966839Exactly, inconvenience is a central theme in the recommended exercise. The issue it addresses stems from a disregard for photography as a systematic process.
>>3966826I can't say for sure but the way that it passes through the aperture tabs means it very likely should work.I have a Minolta MD 2× converter and it does the same thing, forwarding the aperture position to the camera.Besides, the image will get 2 stops darker so it should work in AE regardless.

>>3967041No, I accidentally bent the negative and somehow it was sticky.The incredible thing about stand development is that you can basically shoot 5 stops under or 5 stops over and with a bit of help from your scanner software or lightroom you will have workable negatives. I purposefully went out with a 125 ISO roll at dawn to test its capabilities and most shots were done at 800 ISO or 1600 ISO[EXIF data available.

>>3966570In which city was this taken?
>>3966974I did some looking and it seems it does auto account for the added stops because the lightmeter is TTL. I was just a little confused because, for example on my 50mm f/1.8 at 2x now becomes 100mm f/3.6, but does that mean the lens physically can't go below 3.6? or does that mean it still *can* go as wide as 1.8, but the added 2 stops gets shifted to the shutter speed?
>>3967039my stand developed images don't look like this it seriously look like you took a picture of the negative with a phone which is respectable in my opinion
>>3966994>what the fuck for? this is worthless advice>anon your photo is basic as fuck nobody gives a shit about stupid walking pathsMy advice addresses the “basic as fuck” issue by imposing an almost abusive-father amount inconvenience. As an exercise, shooting as recommended would help Anon learn to not waste his own time with snapshits. It’s not a recommended way to take photos in general. Anon has no idea why he taking photos.

>>3967121I didn't find any of it excessive, it's SOP for a photography course and thoughtful, methodical compositions using a tripod and copious notes are how you improve. When people talk about film making one a better photographer, that's why. Cargo cultists think it's a magic box and that a spontaneous act produces a good final image when the reality is that it's witchcraft. They copy the material but not the ritual components and fail to penetrate the Mystery. Their praxis is void and it shows in their work.
>>3967152you're posting like you need to be good at it before you even start though.
>>3967157To focus on the aesthetic, you must first understand and eliminate the technical and work from terra firma towards your own terra incognita. Photography is a craft and a science as much as an art and controlling your variables is the heart of the scientific method. That anyone would have issue with making focus on composition easier and problems easier to fix is concerning. I've noticed this touches a nerve in all the amateur arts and is the first thing beaten out of you in the atelier.

I bought two packs of the same type of photographic paper.One is 10cm x 15cm, and the other is 24cm x 30cm. Can I make test prints with the 10x15 and when I figure out the correct exposure times and aperture, just resize the projection and use the same settings on a bigger paper?
>>3967217No. The intensity of light decreases with distance according to the inverse square law. At the very least, you'd have to resize and use a test strip to match the exposure unless you really like math.

just wanted to tip anyone off who didnt know about this, 12 rolls of film for 5 bucks.Its probably some old kodak gold or fuji c200 but its too cheap to pass up.https://m.aliexpress.com/item/1005003261603611.html
>>3967555It looks like its 12 exposures for 5 bucks shipping from poland is only 3.
>>3967560Says 18 on the roll so thats what im guessing. The shipping from china is also free for me while the polish shipping is upwards 30 bucks.
>>3967561Im retarded, thats 18 din, not exposures lmao i need to go to bed.Anyway ill check back here and tell yall how the film is next year when i receive my order.
>>3967562Good luck, its not as cheap as you think. In burgerland i can get 108 exposures for $20

Any discounted film deals online this black friday weekend?
>>3967121>My advice addresses the “basic as fuck” issue by imposing an almost abusive-father amount inconveniencei feel like focusing on the sterile details of getting an exposure right would produce even more constrained basic results. my advice to newbs is to experiment more, don't shoot take the same shot twice, figure out what you want to say with the medium. you will figure out how to get a proper exposure and find compositions if you're paying attention
>>3967133they look good in any case. i dig the grainy bad scan look
>>3967171>Photography is a craft and a sciencethe technicals of film photography really aren't hard. going for clinical perfection with film is fine if that's your thing but it shouldn't be THEE thing, because in itself it's uninteresting and pointless. people don't talk about great photographs in terms of mastery of the exposure triangle.
>>3967212this is perfect. the dust and all.
>>3967217as >>3967225 said. maybe try using the test strip method instead? expose a small part of the projection to a small strip of photo paper
>>3967563180 exposures for 5 bux isnt cheap?
>>3967503Haven't noticed it on my Meopta. I will check in the booklet.
>>3967601nigga, it's 5 bucks for ONE roll of 18 exp
>>3967555It's 5 bucks for a roll of 12 exposures, not 12 rolls. They offer rolls of 8, 12 or 18 exposures, and none of them are a good deal.

>>3967723>>3967670jfc lmao you animal
>>3967555there aren't any cheap chinese alternative film stocks. they use the same film we do over there. sometimes someone will import 100 ft rolls of shit and then sell hand-loaded cartridges at a price slightly cheaper than retail. film photography is a corpse.
>>3967712It's very common (universal?) to put the mount points on the front. I guess to balance the body/lens better. If they were on the sides, the camera would tend to point down and dig in with a larger lens.
>>3967744interesting theory but i don't think that's true. it isn't a camera designed for giant lenses. the framelines for the longest focal length here is 90mm.
>>3967588I never said it was hard, it's piss easy compared to painting. What matters is consistent procedure so you can figure out where you fucked up. Knowing what placing a shadow in zone III with a given film will look like or what f/4 will do to the background at a given focal distance comes from taking notes. It's fiddly work but it pays off quickly. Doubly so with filters and flash. I'm not much of a fan of methodical tripod work myself but the results speak for themselves compared to shaky, wide open handheld shots in poor light. Have some respect for yourself and the medium, meter your photos, use a tripod when needed, and dust your negatives at the very least. Like I also said, it isn't some spontaneous act of creativity aided by a magic picture box like cargo cultists and newfags think it is. It's fucking work and you either like the work or like making excuses for why your work is shit.
>>3967744in fact if you put one of the more common lenses to pair with this camera it will dig into your side because it points up since the strap lugs are on the goddamn front of the camera. its a common complaint about an otherwise nearly-perfect camera
>>3967748cool. i just think his photo sucked because it was boring as fuck not because it was underexposed. its the sort of photo you take when you're playing with your camera and have nothing to photograph.
>>3967750A fringe benefit is after the first roll of doing everything right, you can't be bothered to take newb photos. Popping a meter reading is enough to keep the lens cap on.
The downside is that it's all student work from there.

Former apsc body and current mirrorless ff user here and I've recently been having the itch to shoot film on the side. Would greatly appreciate the nudge in the right direction. Plan is to do b&w snapshits on the streets and occasional portraits of friends for fun but not sure where to start. Looking at current listings online in my region I see either cams like AE1 or much cheaper little ones that say "reusable focus free film camera"Is focus free simply point and shoot/auto focus? Pic related is one such cheapo offering around 28usd and I've seen others appx $30~40 range 35mm
>>3969042Focus free means everything beyond X meters will be in focus, and no way to focus closer. The aperture will be pretty closed (f/11) to allow for this. X is typically 2, 3, 5 meters or something like that, usually you have to figure it out by trial and error.
You can get an actually decent AF point and shoot for the same price. If thats what you are after check out the canon sure shot line. They will be much better than the fixed focus shitters
>>3969043Thanks for the explanation and >>3969047Thank you for the suggestion. I'm browsing amazon as I leave this post.No idea why I thought they'd be ridiculously priced. I would've explored film sooner
>>3969051ebay or mercari will be a lot cheaper than amazon for film cameras
>>3969033it's true you God damn dumbass why is it a cope it's just a fucking objective fact who are you why don't you stop parroting the stupid catchphrase it doesn't even make sense the way you use it
>>3969066Its not the one rule. Sure it affects things like a Nikon SP black and a 1.1 or an ALPA 11A with emblem but prices rise for RZ67 IIs and 7s not due to rarity as so much as quality and hype.
Hello.Someone is offering a pair of Mamiya lenses for what seems like a great price (140mm f4 macro and 70mm f2.8) with an adapter for my digital camera for 400usd.That got me into considering film medium format instead of just digital.Are RB67 good cameras overall? Should I look into other MF interchangeable lens cameras instead? It would be fun to share lenses among both systems, contax 645 body's seem ludicrously expensive.
>>3965163I just got a hold of my great grandfathers medium format folding camera. A franka Rolfix. It seems to function as designed. I have heard aperture below 11 is not a good idea, you can close it to 32. I have seen some people using 100 speed film. Seems like a bad idea. Does anyone recommend film for it? Should I just get porta 400 like the kids do these days.
Does Olympys Trip 50 AF really care about if the film is ISO100 or 400? It has 2 DX-pins sensing contacts S3 and S4 but even when I try to fool it with tin foil, it will always use flash even pointed directly to the light source.Camera has only one shutter speed, 1/100. Not sure if aperture is also locked to f/5.6. If aperture doesn't respond to light changes and flash always fire, why the earth that camera has DX contacts?
>>3969113Even for a very old lens, f/11 and smaller only seems excessive. Shoot it wide open for the s o v l.Unless that advice is because it uses a 'lol just guess' focus system so you're likely to miss unless you are very very good at judging distances.
Just got a working Olympus Trip AF Super for a single cent on ebay and a Samsung Slim Zoom 115 S Panorama for £15 as my first P&S. What am I in for lads? Got the latter since I really wanted a panorama camera.
>>3969126An actual Olympus camera (contrast with Olympia cameras, etc) wouldn't have DX pins and autoexposure without doing something with the DX stuff. Generally 100ISO mode is for slides btw, colour neg film don't give a crap about two stops overexposure.
>>3969113F11 or F16 is fine for medium format with no rangefinder. You know the sunlight, ISO100, F16, 1/100s thing... If you want to shoot wide open with ISO400 film you need to nail the focus and with get correct exposure with max 1/250s shutter speed.
>>3969126>Unless that advice is because it uses a 'lol just guess'it has the ability to focus, but you need to judge range. yes. Hence why people shoot at small apertures. >>3969148I never heard of the sunny 16 rule. cool. i think ektar 100 is the way to go.
is fungus looking stuff and dust a non issue if i can only see it with the flashlight test?
>>3969212the dust is a non issue but the fungus will grow so you can clean it now or when it gets worse whatever.

>>3969356You can definitely also use c41 developer on it, and the fixer if it's separate to the bleach.You just need to use 20C rather than 38C for temp, and extend your dev time to compensate. High temps will strip the emulsion right off BW film.
>>3969358>>3969358Cooooool. Reading now and no one can seem to come to a consensus on a replacement for fixer.Aquarium de-chlorinator is being suggested.
>>3969372Thats mainly because fixer is so cheap. Sodium thiosulfate/hypo/antichlor works well but there isn't a significant financial benefit unless you shoot like 100 films/month and buy it in 50lb packs, and rapid fixer is 2-3x as fastFor a start, try 15g+450ml Water, fix for 30 mins. This should last for three films or so but don't store it for more than a month and always fix a test strip in parallel. Shelf life of the working solution can be extended by adding disulfite, then higher concentrations of hypo can be used, meaning it will be faster and last for more films.
>>3969291of course, just thought I'd share my adjacent experience.
>>3969431keep an eye on it though, fungus will spread. less so now that it's probably being kept in a better location but still.
>>3969084man you don't understand basic economics everything is priced according to rarity but vintage gear is more so because it is constricted in its supply and gets squeezed
>>3969350>range finders plus leica glass basicallyfixed
>>3967552Thank you for posting anon>>3967538This one is my favorite.
>>3968523stop using amazon for filmplease stop using it for anything else as well
Some of my shots came out kind of green. Were they underexposed or what?[EXIF data available.

>>3965389do you also like sun kil moon anon
>>3969752this. no reason to give more money to one of the richest companies in the world when you could be giving a bigger cut to a private seller on a different website usually for a better price too
>>3969904>>3969946underexposed but also, were you using like.... expired gold 200?
Do I need to use distilled water for rinse if I use a surfactant like photo flo?
>>3969957Exactly. I just bought a 3 pack of color film on ebay at a price that's obviously much better than amazon and also even competitive with B&H photo, for example. I haven't bought a thing from amazon in 3 years and I don't plan to ever again.
>>3969985Yeah colorplus so even worse.
>>3969986if you have clean tap water you dont need anything
does anyone have any instant film takes they wanna share? i always see the new cameras on facebook marketplace for like $60 at most and the polaroids tarkovsky took look really nice>>3969986not at all>>3970003yeah i underexposed a bunch of shots on a roll of kodak gold once and they looked pretty identical
>>3970014*expired kodak gold
>>3970014I don't know how he managed to take those... My experience with Polaroid is very... aleatoric?Do you have more control with something like the SX-70 compared to a 600 series camera?
Has anyone tried developing multiple (2-5) reels of film at a time using the agitation stick instead of inversions? Work at a mini-lab and I'm a bit weary that the stick won't do the job but would love to use it if it's possible
Has anyone had success with scanning Kodak Colorplus? I've tried using Silverfast and Vuescan with both the Canon 9000F II and Epson V500 and they always end up looking worse than shit. inb4 don't use a flatbed
>have an EOS-1 from my dad>like the film results + I can use my EF lenses, but I rarely bring it out because it's so similar to my 5D Mark III that I just bring the latter insteadwhat's the GOAT point-and-shoot or a light-sized film SLR that isn't a brick like the EOS-1
>>3970141I love my t4 but it sounds like you want a SLR if you’re having fun with a SLR.
>>3970141sounds like you want a rangefinder, look for a canonet
>>3970142Never knew this existed, looks kind of based. I'm in the process of selling my Contax G1 and have an assortment of k mount glass already, this would be the perfect replacement. The dials and buttons look almost identical to a G1.

Looking to pick up a film camera for Christmas as a complete beginner, wanted to get an Olympus AZ-230 or should I go for an AE-1 or another beginner cam?
>>3970243OM-1, AE-1, A-1 anything without an Automatic Mode, to force you to get used to full manual without cheating.
>>3970204I mean look at this thing, how is this not a complete animorphs of G1 if it was an SLR[EXIF data available. Click here to show/hide.]Camera-Specific Properties:Image-Specific Properties:Horizontal Resolution72 dpiVertical Resolution72 dpiColor Space InformationsRGB
>>3970302Pentax's AF SLRs don't get nearly enough love. The MZ-3 was the predecessor to the MZ-S. It's small because Pentax wanted to retain the layout and compactness of their classic manual focus bodies
does cold weather impact film and the resulting photos in any significant way? thinking temps of about -5C to -20C
>>3970470I was just shooting some Fomapan 200 yesterday in -9°C weather. Camera was a Leica M7, got well and truly cold enough to need gloves for operating. No trouble, film didn't break, but I didn't reach the end either; the roll is a bulk load in a plastic cartridge.Film's properties are such that if the camera works and exposes the film correctly, cold weather doesn't affect the result at all. It can be cold-stored, remember. Just don't bring it from cold to warm and let it dew over, that'll be bad; same rules as photo gear in the cold really.
>>3970472ok thanks. been shooting colormax and superia xtra with my trusty MX in about -10 to 15 C the last few days, never shot in the cold beforetoday i caught a deer eating rowanberries off of my lawn, hope i got a good shot before it flew off
I'm going to make viewmaster reels for which I need 12x16mm color reversal film so I'm thinking to get a half frame camera and photograph my monitor displaying pictures. I'll be using Ektachrome 100.Good idea or any tips?
>>3970488I would be careful with advancing the film, Ive managed to get the only scratches ever on my MX by cranking it too briskly in the cold. Especially if you havent advanced it in a while.
>>3970472I store my film in a freezer and sometimes load my camera directly. Sometimes it dews over. What are the negative impacts of film canisters dewing over?
>>3970129Use epsonscan, doesn't matter, in color negative or in color reversal mode. Select the area you want to scan and set levels for each channel, so that the whole histogram is in between black and white points. Scan, then adjust as you want in photoshop. Works good for any film.
Anyone getting the ilford advent calendar? I wanna know what's in it. It sure how it's worth the price unless its all delta 3200
Tourist here, I have a question.Can I know the type of film that a camera uses just by inspecting the camera? How? What to look for?I met a guy that's selling an antique collection and I'd like to get a camera of his that supports the biggest film possible (bigger=better, right?). Something like 35mm is nice, as I know that scales well to 4K.Sorry if any of this sounds retarded, but I really am not familiar with cameras of the technologies associated to them.Resposted (and altered) from another thread.Thank you for reading.
>>3970682just google the model name on your phone
>>3970797Will do. Thank you.>>3970682Anons in another thread have answered my questions. I'm (hopefully) getting my first film camera tomorrow. Sorry for the bother.
>>3970805not a bother, everyones just developing black and white nudes of their qt gf rn
>>3970811jej. I like this board already.
the Yashica Electro 35 GL is fucking fantastic and I burn through film like crazy with this thing. The kerthunk of the shutter release is very satisfying. My only grip with it iswhy in THE FUCK does it not have a focusing tab? Holy shit I cannot understate how useful they are when you want to be fast. WHY
Can anyone ID this camera? From 1956-63 South Korea. There isnt much on the photographer but all his prints are 16 x 20 inches and I don't know how to convert that into lens size.
>>3972453Looks like a Leica M3 or M2 with a coldshoe meter on top. Lens would typically be 50mm, others would use "goggles" on top of the VF which aren't seen in this picture. (and anyway he's outside, so 50mm is the default choice.) Print size is unrelated to lens features.
