Here's a few shots of what I generally use film for still. I have experimented some with DSLR and CCD cameras but get better images with film.







There not perfect but the only one's I got on the web just now. The last one is with the Kodak B&W film that processes in color machines. They are all about 10-15 minute shots of the Orion nebula and Horse Head-Flame nebula. Shot with an Atlas mount using 120mm F/5 refractor with a ST80 as a guider. Or the ST80 and a 60mm as guider. Camera was a Superprogram using Fuji color or Kodak B&W film.

@William, nice to see some astrophotography with film. Not an area of photography that I have tried, but it's on my list <g>.

As always, this thread is providing plenty of inspiration to get out and shoot some film, but the music schedule has reduced me to lurker status of late and the weather (and shooting some school drama productions digitally) has left me with a dearth of current shots to post here, so I'm dipping into the archives...

Rainy Sunday afternoon last July with my ME Super and M50 f1.7 at the Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme. Fuji Reala 100



Museum Building, Same gear



Best to all,
Kevin

Thanks Eddie, I miss it too. I'm going to order some of its current replacement, Ektachrome G100 this week. Will see how that compares, I’ve only used the discontinued GX100 slide film in the past.

Still not having much fun scanning my own slides, can’t seem to get the contrast & colours the same as the originals.

Thanks for the praise. What I like about astrophotography with film is the short times. I often only take a 10 to 15 minute shot. While DSLR or CCD imaging takes hours and hours then even more hours of computer processing. Just is not worth my time right now.

I don't have much fun scanning anything lol, If I could afford it everything would go out to be scanned on a better scanner by someone good at the workflow

It has been a while for me on this thread but I always enjoy it.
Great images from everyone.

I just finished scanning a few prints from earlier in my photographic life that I thought I had lost. Not many survived though. Here are few.

All taken with a Minolta XE-7 or XD-11 and using most probably Tri-X or Neopan 400 film. As to the lenses don't quite remember but probably a 50mm, 28mm or a 35-70mm zoom I had at the time.

War veteran (first Iraq war) circa late 1990- early91.


Rugby club at UW-Madison around '89-'91.


Education Department building UW-Madison campus around '89-'91.


Early morning fishermen in Bahia de Cata, Venezuela 1988 (Blue toned)

Nice to see a Minolta user - I just got hooked on these via a SRT 201 that came 'free' in a package. Now I have both the XE-7 and XE-5, and that beautiful 35-70.

The ref in the rugby match hadn't yet read the memo: the 70s are over
Lovely Ed dept shot too.


I really like the Yashica TL Electro-X, somehow it works for me despite its size... here's a couple with the DSM 50/1.7 and Ferrania 100, large apertures due to the rainy week we've been having

A little while ago I stumbled across a bulk roll of Kodak Panatomic-X film at a local swap meet. I had previouslly seen stevebrot and tuco talking about this film here on PF, so I recognised the name and bought it. Finally got round to rolling a cartridge, shooting it and developing it last night. My shots are nothing special, but even so the film looks really nice. Amazingly low grain and good tonality.
The box was marked to have expired in 1988! But the film seemed to develop fine with no real pushing required. However it is interesting to see that the film edge markings are very faint.

Super Program, A50 f/1.2, Pan-X
Developed in Ilford ID-11 1:1, 6 minutes @ 24degC, exposed at 32ISO (I hope)

I look forward to actually using this in daylight
