    Damn... Just picked up two developed rolls of film that I've taken on my mamiya NC1000 that I got a couple of weeks ago. These were the first rolls of film i took with it so i didn't know how they would turn out. Turns out there probably is some kind of crack or something in the camera so both rolls got overexposed to shit.. There were a few shots (5-6) that turned out normal, but all of they were double exposed by some reason..

    Oh well, i've learned my lesson. Next time i won't shoot two rolls before developing the first i shot.

    Right I just got 4 rolls of film bck
    2 were shot in an Olympus Trip 35 and the other 2 in a Praktica Super TL1000

    Starting with the Trip 35

    Its a small camera and it works brilliantly, I had to look at the negs several times to figuire which set was took with which camera

    Now this was the first time I had took a Praktica out properly, luckily they are rather simple and are similar to what I'm used to.

    I didn't listen to the lightmeter for this picture so it was rather heavily underexposed so a quickauto touchup in photoshop later

    I think this picture might be better if there was a subjecct such as a person.

    I really do like the ornate wooden stairs, I'll go back one day, hopefully with a model to capture better pictures of the stairs

    Then we headed to the beach it was a mile or two walk away with a stop off at aldi we continued on.
    This was one of my colleagues for the day

    I was told that the pier was a bit unsafe but I still climbed onto it (with the help of a sand mound)

    Now which of these two photos looks better:

    apparently the epson v500 is 90 pounds on B&H. I'd buy it from there and get it sent for free to someone in the US *cough*bopie*cough*, then ask them nicely to send it to you in the UK (with you paying for that shipping).

    I'd be too worried about it getting damaged in transit that way, the last scanner I ordered got broken while being shipped.

    B&H fill the box with plastic bags of air, and then the scanner itself is locked in place with chunks of foam; it should be fine. your choice though.

    So those of you who do their own film developing, what do I need to get started? The place where I sent all of my 35mm to get developed just stopped their developing service, and I figure I should just do it myself, it's pretty simple. Just want to make sure I remember everything.

    Got a budget of 300 and need film camera and scanner recommendations if anyone has any, I doubt my X10 would be able to scan/shoot film very well.

    Just realised today how good fuji superia 200 really is. It's way nicer to edit scans from it than from kodak colorplus.

    i am totally ready for exams to finish and for the weather to stop feeling like it's still winter

    need to get a better scanner, either need to get a power cord for my v500 to find out if it works, or a slide holder for my macro lens, either way would work.

    this was all shot on 200, so there isn't really any grain, just my scanner :/ colors were difficult to correct as well. will probably rescan once i have a better solution




    last one is my favorite because it was taken with a 50mm, i was chasing a wild animal with that lens :P
    also goodbye Om1n, sold you for almost 3x what i paid for you!

    Planning on getting back into film this summer. After my medium format camera broke, my old scanner broke, and my(now expired) developing chems screwed up two rolls I kinda gave up. But seeing all the recent content here has reminded me why I love it.

    I think it was either a 55mm or a 58mm (possibly a 35mm somewhere in there aswell) for steetley
    While the Pumping Station ones were a mix of my Bell and Howell 28mm-80mm lens and my Fuji 50mm.

    I feel a little silly for just realizing that I can't just remove the 35mm film from the camera and start scanning it with my flatbed/digital camera, I forgot about the whole developing, bollocks.

    I shot with film today for the first time using a Praktica LTL3/Fujinon f/2.2 55mm and Kodak Ultramax that I bought from communistcat (great guy by the way) and wow, I can really understand why people just love shooting film, having to do everything manually, using the viewfinder to set exposure, having to actually think about your composition and subject/technicalities because you can't just shoot a thousand pictures and hope they turn out good is just a fantastic feeling, really puts you in the zone, I'll definitely be buying a lot more film once I burn through and develop the two rolls communistcat sent with the camera.

    Either the royal mail has done a good job or its been a lot longer since I sent it than I can remember. OK it took less than two days, how did they manage that.

    Edited:

    And I need more cameras my cupboard is nearly empty only 7 cameras in there

    Psshh, real men use a handheld lightmeter... Actually I just do that because batteries are expensive... Glad to see you're liking it so much.

    You can easily do that with a DSLR, it's all about self control.

    You can waste film just as you can waste digital shots, people simply tend to be more wary about film as it costs money but if you are serious about your photos you can easily do the same with a digital camera.

    Also eye+memory light meter master race!

    I just bought my third Olympus XA
    First one didn't work properly. Every mode had a 12-second timer on it so that's just not going to work. Probably a fucked up curcuit or something. The second one was a scam so I lost some money there and the third one is hopefully in prestine condition on it's way here.

    These are all from that expired roll of AGFA Vista 200, I got four more rolls of it and I am happy with the results. Note the grain in the third shot is from overexposure.
