I always get them scanned at Target first and when I see one I really like, I will then rescan the negative myself to get more detail and higher res especially for prints. For web use, I don't see much difference.

Point of reference - scans from a contact sheet and film, Epson 3390 using the Epson software. 6x6 negative from a Ricoh Diacord, Arcos 100.

contact


film


contact


film


From a 4x6 print, some Pentax camera, SMC-A 28/2.8


film


I scan film, or use the drug store minilab scan for 35mm. Scanning a contact print can be OK. If I were to have a darkroom and the time to print properly, that is, with 'manipulation' of the print to achieve what I want, I would scan the print. However, I find I can do more and better with Photoshop. Regular mass production prints can be manipulated as well to bring out what needs to be, but film IMHO is the better starting point.

Thanks I really like using Fomapan for my B&W shooting. I'm waiting for two more rolls to come back from dr5 Chrome. I will post some more shots later on after I get them scanned.

Kodak Portra 400VC

I have read in the Photo.net forum, that a lot of people did not like that film compared to the Kodak 400UC that has been discontinued.
I have found that I really like it. On print I think that it gives more details than some other films I have used.
Of course it is $9 in Canada









I also have a roll of Portra 400NC to try.
What is your experience with either?

Cheers,

Luc

I didn't like 400UC but your results are much better than I got. I don't think I've used that Portra.

This is from the Kodak Retina IIa, Fuji 400H



Same camera, a year later, Kodak 160NC

Konica C35 Flashmatic
Fuji Presto 400
Pentax AF200T


Using the "Flashmatic" feature of the Konica C35 Flashmatic as it was intended to be used. You set your external flash's guide number into the camera and it automatically (and steplessly) adjusts aperture (and minimum focusing distance).

Nice shot! I like the signs: One Way Dead End. It's a pity the kids umbrella is almost the same tone as the sidewalk.

Have you ever tried to throw a pen back into the pencil holder and hit your lens instead? Guess it's got a filter on it, so it's ok.

Olympus MJU I / Stylus, Agfa Vista 200.
Not a very sharp lens on this one. The search continues for the most compact 35mm with a decent lens. So far my beat up Konica C35 Automatic is the winner in that category but I want something smaller.

Mmmm an air-cooled German car.... I like this photo's "character" - you can see that car has been driven hard (as it should be)

Thanks! It looked like it had actually been driven in a few rallies.
