Great scene there! Well composed with the pano format. Do you have any links describing the 135-film-in-a-6x7-body setup?

Thanks! I use Fotodiox 35mm panoramic conversion kit, sometime you can find them for $20+/- used (I bought mine from Keh, but recently have seen them cheap on evilbay). There are several ways to DIY such kit as well (seen people cut the 120 spool to create a holder for 35mm canister: Sprocket Hole Photography Adapter for medium format (120) cams - a set on Flickr). I can't find a 'tutorial' when I first try it out, but here is a link I post for this method: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/48-pentax-645d-medium-format/251098-p67-3...rsion-kit.html

let me know if I can be of any help, I can send you more pics explaining them.

Thanks for your detailed instructions ! especially regarding removing the green cast. Much appreciate!
Awaiting weather to get better and see how the film perform. Scanning is definitely a learning process. Please continue to point out to me if my film colors looks weird - some ppl may not like it, but I am a rookie, so I actually appreciate it!

LFLee-- There are some scanning software (SilverFast etc.) that allow the user to pre-scan a 6x7 frame and set the borders to make a panorama from a frame that was not shot that way. If there is a scene in which I want to be panoramic, I will shot it with the intent to make it panoramic at the scanning phase. No sprocket holes to worry about.

My pleasure! The new scans look just great. I get best results scanning negatives with Vuescan (VueScan Scanner Software for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux), but when you include the sprocket holes in the image area it will also require some post colour/contrast correction.

Thanks! I heard vuescan is less trouble to use, will try it out.
I like the sprocket holes initially, but after you put few of them together, they starts to look distracting...

Here is one roll that I just got back! I use Fujifilm Pro 400H this time, to be honest, I like the colors from this film more than Portra 400!
I am ordering more of this film... this film handle the green color very nicely, love it.
My 3rd roll using 120 film.

This roll pass through airport x-ray once (that TSA doesn't allow hand check, and now I know they can't deny that), but seem fine.



will share once I did my own scan! love to hold actual prints and look at them!

alas some first images to this thread through my TLR with expired Porta 160VC from 2009... Thought I'd share both the (nortitsu) lab scans and my flatbed attempts (using baby clothespins because I can't find the holders)... I've labeled them though it's quite obvious. I sure would love to be able to get that noritsu color and balance (without paying for it)!

flatbed:

It's quite a learning curve this stuff! I learned very clearly from this first roll that my TLR does NOT have IBIS.

The next roll is in the chamber, some new Portra 400 and I'm hoping it doesn't take me another 3 months to finish shooting it...

I'd say you're not doing a very bad job with the scanning, the main problem is the white balance. As you have apparently white objects in most or all of those shots, this should be quite easy to sort out in PP. Make sure you over-expose the film as it's expired and will have lost some sensitivity. I have some 2011-expired Portra 160 in 220 and I expose it at 125 and it does fine.
