More Fomapan 400 pushed to 1000 in amaloco AM74.
I don't care what they say about pushing Fomapan 400, I'm sure going to do more of it. I love the grain and the tonality and I love the simplicity of the images you get when you loose all that shadow detail.

More of that ugly nasty agfa film.
These are very nice, despite the grain. I like 2 and 4.

Hey Robin, good to see you in our neck of the woods.
Hi neighbour!

I started with film many moons ago with borrowed Pentax bodies and my friend's Contax/Zeiss setup, but then gave up photography for a long time. When I came back it was because digital was now affordable to my small broken down budget. I went through three p'n's cameras before realising I would only be happy with an SLR.

Somehow I have since spent more than I thought I would. Funny how that happens!

Along the way what changed for me is two decades of growing up and experiencing the world and learning about aesthetics and technology and the contradictions and confluences of both.

But it still couldn't have been done with film, unfortunately. I live three hours from the nearest major centre that would process 120 film for anything approximating affordability. I would love to get into medium format but maybe need to wait for the 645D and a boat-load of cash, since this would still be less than what I would spend on film and processing. This saddens me.

As for 35mm, let me be contentious and say that little of what I see couldn't be done on digital. Of course it might require crazy post-processing and not everyone wants to spend hours in front of a computer. I respect the chops of those who develop their PP abilities in this way. But, heck I also greatly respect the skillz of those who get such great film images. I am sorry if I haven't acknowledged more of the great work in this thread. Go go go film boyos!

Here is my viral interjection.

They stopped production? Kitamura has TONS of 100, 200 and 400 Centuria. They also sell it on their website (DNP CENTURIA 200 135-24). If this stuff is going out, I'm going to have to stock up.
They stopped in March. Bic Camera is limiting orders of the 200 speed 36 exposure bricks of 10 rolls to two packs per order.

If I had the money I'd buy several hundred rolls and a dorm fridge just to store it in.




1960 Meica 35 Toy Camera
DNP Centuria 200


If I can get shots like that from a 49 year old TOY camera purchased for FIVE dollars I have to wonder why in hell I have spent thousands of dollars on "better" equipment. The camera has a fixed-focus 50mm lens with a choice of f8, f11, and f16. Shutter speeds are "I dunno" and "Bulb". The viewfinder is a mockery of a viewfinder and there is quite a bit of guesswork involved in film advance. It utilizes a curved film plane to help cover up the deficiencies of the cheapo lens.

OK, I had to scan in the rest before my shift ...the rest are here; B&W Photo Gallery by ajuett at pbase.com

This first one is actually a wedding shot...



That is a lot of detail - nice.
I should have another look at XP2.
Have you been over exposing slightly?

Cheers,

Luc

XP2 is very good, especially MF... but that Fomapan at night looks very very nice indeed. I gotta get me a tank

Mike, that toy camera does produce good pictures. I know what you mean: often there's little correlation between price and performance, especially with the vintage stuff.

All Kodak shot: Kodak 160NC in a '54 Kodak Retina IIa with a Schneider 2.0/50mm lens. A lovely combo on the street.

I wish we had a Bic Camera here. How much are the 5D2's at Bic?
In some Jusco's, I've seen Holgas go for 8,000 yen! And other toy cams are 4 times their normal price.
I guess I'll have to purchase a lot of DNP soon. I'm going to miss this film

Luc, that photo could have been in a Pop Photo issue from the 70s or early 80s. Excellent.

Thank you - I should have a look at these as at that time I was not thinking photography but finishing school and university

Cheers,

Luc
