He dropped this off today.....
TELL HIM TO TAKE IT BACK
No 500 C/M, No care.
i dont get it
so he like, gave it to you as a gift or you ordered it?
Baby steps.... I'm just trying out the logistics of MF film. I'd like to get back into film again, but I need to see how much trouble it is getting it processed.
No, I ordered it...it's just not the elite equipment most people measurebate about.
Canon DSLR or BUST
wheres the electrical tape?
leaks are the best part!
I've already spent all my monies on this fine camera....I can't afford any accessories for it.
holgas are fun. shoot a roll then do an aperture mod.
my ae1 will rape you
So I decided to process my own film. I'm a little rusty, the last time I did this was about 12 years ago.
If you want to see the fingerprints, dust and scratches the full size is here: http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3230/2718806232_28e214cb1b_o.jpg
I really wish I had space to set up a darkroom in my apt, I see darkroom equipment for free or cheap on craigslist all the time.
Then I could shoot with the pentax
No need for a full darkroom. I just develop the film and then scan the negs. You just need a changing bag (or light free room) to load the film in the tank. Then the rest is done at my kitchen sink.
yea, I used to do that shit in highschool, what kind of scanner/device do you use?
I probably need to get some new film, I think I still have 2 rolls laying around from like 2 years ago (and not in a cooler)
Its way more fun to play around in the darkroom though
scanning negs is a bitch, no enlarger no care
True, if like me you don't have the right equipment.
I have a regular flatbed scanner, not intended for scanning negs. For 35mm I used the template from here: http://www.abstractconcreteworks.com/essays/scanning/Backlighter.html
Place the film on the scanner then put a piece of glass to hold it flat. Then I used a CFL light bulb (incandescent flickers at 60hz and the scanner seems to pick it up leaving banding) in a Home Depot clamp light to back light it.
For my 120, I used a coffee filter for the light dome.
I had to experiment with different things to get it right. Too much backlight and it won't work, too little and there's almost no contrast.
thats hot, but buy a better scanner, it will make life easier
Obviously! The problem is I've already bought way too much gear this year and nothing for the wife. If I come home with anything other than a duvet cover or whatever the hell women pine over, I'll be scanning the negs from the car.
Besides...I'm giving it time. I've got her learning on my old Canon AE-1P, she developed her first roll last night and got real excited to see them "enlarged" so hopefully I'll be able to convince her the quality will be better with a decent film scanner.
you would rather shoot with the holga than the ae1? why
Actually I rather shoot with my D300, but I wanted to try the Holga out for funs. Also, I have this itch every once in a while for a MF camera. So I figured I would work out the logistics of getting the film developed with a cheap camera before I dropped the bucks for used a Mamiya or 'blad.
Now that I have that figured out....
id rather shoot with my canon 7 than my AE1 or my 507si or anyother camera i tried-ever. However i havent tried the D300 out.
