It's a Holga! There is no meter in the camera. And if the 120S is like the 120N, you only have a choice of two apertures (sunny and cloudy) and one shutter speed besides bulb.
I think the S is even more basic. Mine has no option for bulb, and the smaller aperture is fixed into the lens making the "cloud/sun" switch seem a bit pointless.

Here are a few shots from my second attempt.

All taken with a Ricoh KR-5, SMC Pentax 50mm, Ilford HP5+, Ilfotec DDX for 9mins, Epson V600. Tried to incorporate some of the pointers from above, pretty happy with the result. I really like the grain and tone of this film. Would like to hear your thoughts and constructive criticism. Thanks.


Really beautiful square rigged schooner from New Zealand.


My first thought when I scanned this was, that looks like it could have been shot in 1965.

Very nice! Is that the c-41 Kodak B&W film?

according to this attempt i'd say that your developping method is perfect and the flaws comes from the holga at 100% !

Cool, and thank you for the kind words.

Don't know if I am producing anything worthwhile, but it sure is fun.

Yup, this stuff is quite expired and how it was stored is unknown.

Here's another

Colton, I love your work. The Kodak BW400CN is my favorite c-41 b&w. No matter how oddly that it is not the true b&w, I love its contrast and the journalistic tone.

Can I ask how you develop and scan your work? And if you do your own scanning, what scanner and software you use.

Much thanks,
Hin

Love your work. And you have an instant admirer, I mark you instantly as my flickr contact. Can I ask if you use the stock software with Epson or you use something else for your scanning.

Much thanks,
Hin

Thank you Hin!
I agree with you about Kodak BW400CN, to me it produces better looking B&W than XP2, but I haven't shot much of either.

I get all my C-41 developed at my local lab. They do a pretty good job and typically only charge me $2.75 or $3.50 per roll (develop only, long sleeve), and they usually have about a 30 minute turnaround so I can drop off a roll, go for coffee and come back and pick up developed film.
For E6 and true B&W, I usually sent it to place in Eugene or Portland.

I scan all my film myself (with help loading and unloading) using my V500 and Epson software which I've found to be perfectly adequate for my needs. I've made great looking 8x12 prints from 35mm scans and great looking 24x30 prints from 6x7 scans. I've yet to really run across a situation where I need bigger prints.

I bought a Yashica Mat 124G just because it looks so cute..
Unlike so many others I do not have any experience with film, so I am very happy with this photo from the test-roll (expired Ilford FP4).
