Thanks! I'm pretty sure this was with the ZX-5n... I had two rolls and finished them a while ago, it was either that or the MZ- S... I will make sure to keep track of everything now. I cropped it and then only made minor other adjustments. Hard to know what to do and not do with film source, but it seems right to keep close to the original image. I'm ready to load another roll of Fuji and shoot it with a single lens for the roll.

Oh cool.
Are you scanning yourself?
I find that film kinda let's you know when you're over editing, if I push my scans much I seem to get over accentuated grain, and more of it.

No, I'm sending to North Coast Photo in Carlsbad, CA for processing and scanning. They do pretty good scans. I'm sure I could do it locally, probably Adorama or Duggal in NYC. I used to process slides myself, and have thought about doing it again, but waste chems might be a problem at home.

My experience as well. I usually have scan to provide as much headroom (and footroom?) as possible and even then, PP is an exercise in extreme moderation.

Thanks Ineound!

Your Spanish Blues has motivated me to review the frames I have from my previous trip to Spain. What city was that from?

OTOH, I'm also checking what I have from Fuji 400 as you are getting some good results from this film as in your Berlin Mitte!

I think that's El Puerto de Santa Maria not far away from Cadiz. Unfortunately I am not 100% sure if that is really a Fuji 400, since it was an own-brand from a local drug store. But I was surprised by the results, too!

It was unfortunate that I didn't make it to that side of Spain as I was mostly in Barcelona and San Sebastian. But I did use Fuji Superia 400 for the shot below taken just south of Barcelona in Tarragona.



Funny story as I was set to go to Spain with the pro films - mostly chrome, but in the rush to board the plane I forgot my bag of film at the security and ended up buying what film was available in Spain which was mostly C41!

Nice shot as well as the desert ones.

Whenever I travel to a big city I always pre-scout photo labs that sell & develop film. That’s my "plan B" incase I need more film or want to process some film taken on the trip, so I don’t have to worry about x-ray scans on the return flight home.

Coincedentally, I had a roll of the same loaded as I tried to capture something for World Pentax Day. Saturday was a rainout however. Today I took a hike around a preservation area I hadn't previously visited, and made a few stops along the route. These were Wal-Mart developed and scanned. The file sizes were small enough, I didn't bother to resize them.

Solomon's Bridge, KX, M200/4, Superia 400, (1/250 @ F11 I think)


Reeds, KX, M50/1.7, Fuji Superia 400 1/250, f11


cheers,
Fred

Very nice quality in that, and I have no idea at all what that camera is.
