I have a fairly inexpensive Epson scanner (4490 Photo) and it does a good job with B&W negatives. I just can't use the dust removal feature on B&W. I have only rudimentary scanning skills but they turn out well enough to share online/print.

I also have the 4490 and it does pretty well. Still, scanning tends to be the weak point in the overall flow...

Which is the film here, but in a 120 6x9 Agfa Record II... HC-110 developer

+1 The eye is drawn beautifully down the line of streetlamps into the city.

Found this roll of film in the fridge and had it developed while stopping by the local box drugstore. Jeez, their scan and develop rates went up from what I remember... Kodak c-41 B&W from inside the family farm's barn (which has since come down) and a random landscape from Colorado last year. I think it was from a scenic overview spot south of Ouray... This would have come out of my Spotmatic F with an SMC 55/1.8

johnha & quicksilver - excellent shooting!

Jonha, your kit is pretty much exactly the Sightseeing Screwmount traveling troupe:

and is obviously working for you.
