Thanks Swift1 I quite like the results from Reala too...
Great pics Frank! Your images have lots of punch. I just shot my first roll of Reala and really liked it too. In just one roll I can tell it's gonna be one of my all time favorites.

Thanks again Jay for such a wonderful lens. I'd give it a try on b&w film, heard it takes even better photos on b&w film

Thanks This trip to Malaysia wasn't as rewarding as I expected, only shot one roll of film plus some digital photos to record the trip.

Took another roll of Reala w/ LX and A50/1.2 on the next day when I brought the kids to the beach, pity the sky was cloudy, pictures turned out not as good as I hoped. Next time probably just shoot b&w when the sky isn't blue.

Here are a few from that day, LX+A50/1.2 on Reala 100.

when the sky is cloudy most of the times you have to underexpose to retain the highlights and then you can boost the shadows as much as you want this is why print film is good. The sky then becomes more interesting

Then again high contrast films seem to good a job when the sky is cloudy = less dynamic range and can produce most of the time a more interesting look , not Velvia but something like Provia 100f or Elitechrome E100 EBX Extra Color would render the colors more physically correct and a thus a more pleasing result

I always(*) scanned my b&ws as color negatives, but after Agnostic said he does the same, I tried to improve my output. Still trying, but I got some decent stuff lately

(*) That's really short - only about a year now.

Here are some photos from the same day:

I scan B&W in 24 bit colour, no exposure correction, sharpening or anything like that. The result is a flat, boring .TIFF, so I boost the contrast, blacks and sharpening in the Post Processing program, then 'desaturate' to get truly neutral greys without a colour cast. Seems to be the best B&W approach with my Epson V500 flatbed.

I find in-scanner sharpening to really emphasize grain, even on low.

A bunch of great shots Frank.
What are you using for scanning?

Here is a shot I took a month or so ago.
This is my first 6x7 scan on my V500

P67, Takumar 67 90mm LS, Fuji 160S

I sent to shop for development and scanning. The scanner they used is the NORITSU KOKI Model: QSS-32_33

Nice photo Read the V500 is a good scanner. I might get one eventually. But for now, I'll just let the shop do it for me.

The 6x7 so often has that LOOK, and Swift1 yours has IT. A 3-d pop-out. You nail the focus.


Meanwhile... this slide film stuff isn't half bad... Sensia 100 (expired), Nikkor-N 24mm f/2.8, Nikon FE... Dwayne's scan
