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).


Superb.

If you have a reliable camera with a good meter there's nothing complicated about film photography, at least, nothing that isn't also complicated with digital.

Nice shot with good lighting on the subject. You can tell its MF from the detail. What aperture were you shooting at? I've got a similar Yashica 24 and I find that its a bit soft at anything wider than f/8.

Finally finished the roll of Ilford FP4 I had in my MZ-L for what seemed like forever.
This is the third roll of FP4 I've ever shot (the other 2 I shot in 2009) and I wish I had been shooting with it more. I really like the results I got on this roll.

I took this a few weeks ago while picking my brother up at the airport for Thanksgiving.

Nice shots with Iflord, Colton & bucfan1234! Try the SFX 200 with a red filter if you get a chance, it's also very good.

Thanks for the kind comments, Henk and Hinman.

Can I ask if you use the stock software with Epson or you use something else for your scanning.
I just use the epson software on professional mode. I really like it. Itīs simple and easy to use. I have tried Vuescan and some other software, but couldnīt see any difference with the results.

Coast 8 is really nice. I also use the Epson software, good to know that it performs well.

Swift1, I like that airport shot. May have to try FP4 too.

+1 on that. If that's a 'test shot' then I'm gonna be afraid of how good your 'real' shots are

Thanks guys! I really like the result I got on this roll of FP4, I wish it wasn't so pricey.

This is from about a week ago when our little tiny Wagner Creek flooded after 3 days of rain.

Pentax! I like the last two. The airplanes mix well with the overall image, very nice. And we know floods here, recent and otherwise. I will take the 85 out for a film spin soon, promise...

Over here in Spain, FP4 is the cheapest 100-ish ISO B&W film I can get. I like it a lot, along with T-Max.
