Horray, I finally have something genuinely B&W film. This is just that Kodak C41 400 (forget what they call it) developed and scanned to CD by Target (for a total of 99 cents for developing and 2.49 for scanning full roll.) This is uncropped unedited though I shrunk these and dropped the quality a bit so it could be posted here, otherwise they do ok on scanning. I used my new (old) freshly CLA'd Brown bodied K1000 SE I was so thrilled to get, looks like they got it right when they redid it.


Dunno what these funny colored ducks were (they seem to be made for B&W film) but a stupid jogger scared them off after I snuck up on them and I had to do a quick half assed focus and shoot of them running off.

Very nice! You don't remember which Kodak C41 b&w film it was? (yeah, film noob here)

Dug the 3 roll package out of the trash, its Kodak Professional BW400CN its what they sell at Walgreens and the only non mail order B&W film available to me until I get a darkroom and can use other than C41 stuff. I'm happy enough with it, the quality is great for an image that was scanned from film and then shrunk in both dimensions and file size so it could be posted here.

And I rather liked the footprints myself, that shot was almost from the hip (barely had time to raise the camera and focus) and I was totally certain it was a lost cause until I looked at it, its aimed a bit high but they were really moving and ducks don't warn you when they decide to run, I had to stand up and jump forward to shoot over the railing I was hiding behind (visible in 1st photo) so I didn't exactly have a plan for the shot. I was just lucky I remembered to advance the film and the exposure was already set right from the previous shot.

All 3 of those were with the A35-105 F3.5 btw.

Great stuff Slackercruster! Classics.


I've been messing with a couple of 120 cameras - a Holga 120 WPC wide angle pinhole, and an Agfa Record II 6x9 folder that I suspect had been restrored by Mr. Kreckel (Certo06), with new bellows... and the focus set way too close. Funny, the other ex-Kreckel camera I'd bought (in fact the first folder I bought once I'd broken the ice with a found Franka) also had the focus set too close. Oh well, it will be easy to fix - however the results now are rather out of focus and pinhole like










The pinhole had Neopan 400, the Agfa HP5+, both slightly expired. I was using the dregs of my D-76; in fact the Neopan was in a slightly dilute 1:1 soup.

Nice character shot. Do you still have this gear and are using it currently?

Nope, got rid of it all back in the 70's. Gave up taking pix, got burnt out.

In the 80's picked up a K1000 and that was what led me to Pentax. But got rid of it and just took snapshots for a few decades.

This Jan got back in and trying to learn dig. Got all Pentax dig gear (6-12 mp bodies) and some 3rd party lenses.
