Awesome!

#3, Tri-X and Double-X have nice even tones.
However, the color films (#1, #2) have the little pepper/patches, such as on the cat's nose (that's on the film, but not actually on the cat himself).

#2, most new fast color film is cine500t-based, which scans well and was made for movie-screen size display (at most).
It is nice to leave the zoom at home. That image is 1/3rd of a frame crop.

#1, old color film is what the scanner doesn't like, although a heavier exposure could be HDR scanned (takes a while).

Kudos for matching the photos to the film!
I'm curious for what clues you used to match them?
Just my experience shooting with lots of different film, to be honest.

Very cool, that's a perfect site for BW shooting. I'll have to shoot some SFX, i like the results you got.

Thanks! I usually go up there once a year to shoot a roll. Last time there was a lot of construction, so had to shoot around the reno areas.

A nice waterfall near my parents cottage. Taken with a Yashica Mat 124, printed on Arista paper, scanned with the cheapest of epson scanners.

Yeah, large images mean a low scanning SPI will produce good detail. But an inexpensive scanner might not grab as much of the density range off a negative in the case of transmission scanning as well as a good scanner of course. But in your reflective scanning the density on the negative has already been fit to the printing paper which is in the density range of most reflective scanners I think.

Developing some low priority backlog. Testing a bump up in development time with HP5+. It feels like it has finer grain than my first SFX200 shots.

GX617, HP5+, PMK Pyro

Yeah, I often print test prints at 5x7 or 8x10. This one was at 4.5"x4.5", quite small as I need to stop printing large for "test" prints. To me these days, the print, not the scan is the important part, I just scan them and throw them up online for fun. I'm quite happy enough with my scan results with my Epson V39, cost me $20 used. The resultant images don't have a full curve of info, I have to stretch it.

I have two enlargers and all the print stuff. But I haven't done any wet-printing for a long time. The space I used to have a darkroom was commandeered. I do want to get it back online one day in the not too distant future though.

I'm quite lucky, our basement is two big sections, divided by a wall. I've set up the one side as a darkroom. It's a good use for it, it's tucked away, already had a long wooden shelf that's just about perfect for the wet trays. I need to get an electrician in at some point to put another receptacle in, but there's no rush on it.
