400H is def a really interesting film. looking forward to using it more.
you might be interested in a thread i started here asking for samples 400H Landscape Samples? - Rangefinderforum.com

how do you like Astia 100? i have some Provia 100 that i haven't used yet cuz of the shitty weather, waiting till spring to use it.

both, the film is daylight balanced and there was some funky lighting on that street

Nice Shots!!!

To be a nitpicker, only the last image is really a "Street" photograph..Street photography is considered to be street, only when there is a generally recognizable person in the shot that evokes some kind of emotional response from the viewer..

The other 4 are cityscapes..Nitpicking aside, all 5 are excellent shots..Like the others, I too, like the first and the last ones the best; although the second one with the bridge, the water, and the building with the interesting architectural details is also very well done, and visually interesting..

Lovely shots Gooshin. Is Fuji 400 Pro the same as Fuji Superia Xtra? Reason I ask is nobody's name for their film seems to be the same, and that's likely to do with the different countries represented on this board. Fuji's Canadian website lists Superia Reala (100), Superia (200), and Superia Xtra (400 & 800) for C41 process, and then the Nexia line for APS and Velvia for slides. Am I mising something?

And I'm anxiously awaiting the rundown on the 100 film. I've always wanted to try 100, but didn't think it would give me the flexibility in dark shots that I like to have.

Fuji 400 Pro NPH is its own line, i dont think it compares to Superia

from what i understand Superia is the consumer line of fuji film

i shot two rolls of Superia 200 while on my trip, once i scan them i will post some pics.

as for shooting 100 film in the dark, you are rather screwed, even with fast glass.


which is why you should buy a camera that allows you to switch film roles mid-shooting

the film that was called NPH is now 400H
it is the professional grade film that is a step up from Superia (and its Press Equivalents)
other films in this line include 160C, 160S, and 800Z
the 160C is more vivid, the 160S and 400H are more neutral and 800Z is in between
400H and 800Z are very excellent wedding films

or carry two cameras with different films.

great shots, love them all.
ever tried b&w film with your scanner? my scanner (HP scanjet 4370, flatbed with transparency adapter) freaks out with b&w films, cannot decide what's white point, what's black, and you can't really adjust that manually as i would like. also, i've experienced problems even with normal color film too.
it appears it's time for dedicated film scanner..

a word or two about lenses? i presume camera was MZ-S.

1. yes well.. maybe next month

2. thank you

3. https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-film-slr-discussion/47038-ilford-hp5-shots.html

my scanner is the Nikon Coolscan 5000D, however when it comes to black and white scans it seems to blow out the highlights even though they are there, otherwise this scanner is very sharp. My friend figured out a way to bypass this by scanning a black and white negative as a positive and then reversing the colours in photoshop , get a bit more DR

altho i also found that exporting into 16bit tiff and using something like Lightroom gives you much more recovery than the basic nikon preview stuff (maybe its just the nikon scanner software that presents photos with too much brightness)


however, ICE (or dust/scratch removal) does not work on B/W negatives

4. Lenses used on this trip were

Sigma 18mm F2.8 prime (MF)
Sigma 28mm F1.8 prime (AF)
Cosina 55mm F1.2 prime (MF)

the 18mm sigma is ridiculously soft around the corners even at F8, then again it cost me 140 dollars, and i never noticed it much on digital...

then again, it is 18mm and it is f2.8!

the sigma 28 F1.8 was a solid performer, no complains (other than size)

Cosina 55 is also a solid performer (other than lack of AF), however with my lens hood from a super takumar, which caused no problems on digital, vignetted on film at wider apertures, totaly did not expect that.

also the DOF can be super thin (note the Illford shot)

5. yes, MZ-S
