I'm also sad to see Neopan 400 go. Have you found a replacement for it?
Not definitively yet. HP5+ for my pushing needs, I think, but at box speed? Still can't decide.

Some more JCH Streetpan 400. This roll shot at box speed. Same camera & often even the same lenses as the previous roll with much better results (even the ones where I wasn't certain I could hold it steady, since the lighting was more 1600-worthy) — which would suggest that it's probably not a great film to push.









Pentax K2.
(Lenses are, from top to bottom: Dunno. A50/1.4. A50/2. Adaptall-2 28mm f2.5.)

I can only see the last one - the others display a message that the photo is no longer available.

That last one looks pretty good though. I looked into the StreetPan as I follow JCH on Tumblr but it's not available where I am. I found some posts stating it's more than double the price of comparable Kodak and Ilford films, so even if it were available here I doubt I'd even try it.

Huh. Strange. There's no particular reason why only one of them would still be showing. Regardless, I've edited the post to try and get them to show again.

I'm in the lucky position that my local shop ordered in bulk and is selling it for about the same price as 36 exposures of Tri-X. (Or is that unlucky? Since Tri-X isn't one of their cheaper offerings these days.)

Debated whether to post this up here, but here it is. This is from a very leaky home build camera. I'm building a second one soon, this one has been fun but... ultimately flawed. :P

I can see them all now, not sure what the problem was. They look good.

Many film prices are on the rise. I think I might have shot my last roll of Acros as I can't find it anywhere for less than €9 and change - for that price I can get almost two rolls of FP4+ or three of Agfa APX 100.

Here are some shots of mine, fresh from the scanner. SFXn, Auto Revuenon 50mm f/1.4 (lovely lens) and Kodak T-Max 400, all shot in the local Saturday market. There was a big scratch across about half of this roll so I got to try out the scratch removal tool in Paintshop X8 - it seems to work reasonably well.

Good stuff on these last few pages.

Well, my trusty Pentax 67 didn't fail me with shutter problems at least.

Tuco, that's a fantastic shot.



This isn't a pentax camera, but I thought I'd post it anyway. This is a slight crop of one of the first successful photos I've taken from my home made plywood box camera. I'd quite happy about it, it's been a bit of a journey to get to this point.

Something or another angulon 65mm lens w/ 4x5 RPX 25 film


Second shot from the same location. I didn't have a tripod, I think straight up would have been a really neat shot.

Thanks. Some good looking sheet film work you got there.

Say, that night shot of mine, Can see some dark bands running down the windows onto the ground? On my monitor I can. It looks like some kind of version of bromide drag. This stand development in Rodinal with 120 roll film seems to be risky when you flirt with the edge of black.

Thanks! I'm happy, it's been a learning curve with the 4x5, gone through a lot of sheets. I'm happy my results are getting better now.

I can... maybe see that on my monitor? I'm not quite sure, if it is there I never would have noticed if you hadn't mentioned it.

I've had similar issues with Rodinal, but with really (over) developed sky. I had a snow scene where the bromide draw was noticeable.
