Fairly well. I've gone through two rolls of fuji superia, and I've got a few left. I'm planning to send the sightseer on by the end of the week, if that's acceptable.
I haven't had any of the film processed yet, but when I do I'll be sure to put up a few scans.

Repeating from my PM - keep it until you are finished (as long as you post photos ). The first time around I sent it on too soon.

Congratulations Blue! I am trailing you by quite a bit. I suppose there are at least a few people who would suggest that we get a life

Congratulations on the 10K
Yo get a free oil change at 30K
I know it's been 6 months since I had the Sightseer, but I've been fooling around with scanning my own negatives and although I shared these before (page 38 of this thread) with commercial scans (YUCK), here are some of the Sightseer images from February in Puerto Rico, re-scanned at home. I hope you don't mind.

Sightseer and Kodak BW400CN Black and White C-41 film












Thanks,

Thanks!
It's an older Epson 2400. I'm using Vuescan and CS5 for final adjustments.

Monochrome, sorry for the delay, sightseer will ship saturday. I guarantee it.
Film is in for processing, and there's a few shots on the roll that's in the camera. The SV is a pleasure to use. I feel like I could really get into shooting with a meter-less camera. Sunny 16 is a good rule, and I feel like nailing an exposure based on the skill and merit of your experience as a photographer puts some of the art back into it. Maybe that's just me, but it's been a very enjoyable experience none the less.

Glad you enjoyed the experience - looking forward to having the SSS again

The Sightseer has arrived in St. Louis. We ahve a full schedule of sights to see and show, and MAYBE the last roll of Kodachrome 64.

Tempts me to send along what *may* be the last roll of Kodachrome *25.* I think it expired some time in the Reagan administration, though, or shortly thereafter.

Well what the heck.

Maybe I'll just follow the original plan and shoot it with the K2dmd or KX on one of those bright crisp fall days.

Then again, maybe I should live dangerously, shoot the SV/K64 at the balloon glow Friday night - and change my UserName.
