Great set, what films did you use?

Phil.
Thanks! #1 Velvia, #2 & #3 E100VS, #4 Fuji Acros (orange or yellow filter), last 2 are Rollei Retro 400s (red filter and filter factor of 3). The black and white ones were done in Rodinal.

I haven't had much success with this film. I had never heard of it and got a box for $2 a roll.

I shot some Velvia 50 and some Ektar 100 in the mountains, two of my favorite films. Can't wait to get those back!
I've seen some very nice shots taken with this film but like you, I haven't had any luck with it. Colours are dull and it's far grainier than an ISO 100 film should be. I can't believe this is marketed as a "pro" film in some markets.

The E100VS was a great film, too bad Kodak discontinued it with the other Ektachrome series. I managed to get some E100G in 120 a couple weeks ago, with an expiry date of June 2014.

Thanks! I like your shot a lot. Especially composition and colours. I'm surprised you managed to get it at iso 160. Did you use a tripod?

RR400s and RR80s are great films. I like the infrared sensitivity, so I like to shoot it with red filter. 80s is a bit harder to develop, but it is very sharp.

Agnostic, welcome back! I've been on hiatus since February; couple of digital projects and a whole lot of music work have kept me away, although I have a couple of shots I'd like to post when the dust finishes settling. Great to see your photos in this thread again.

I've quiet large stock of e100vs in 120 and 35mm. Also of e100g in 120. Both expire around the same date. I agree with you, it looks great. It has slightly larger grain than fuji films, but the reds and yellows really make it shine in South Asia.

I usually like velvia, but it didn't work as well as e100vs over there. I only got that one photo that I liked.

I have never shot RR400s, but am a real fan of RR80s. I soup the RR80s in dilute HC-110 (dilution H) with gentle agitation and shoot it at EI 160 per Le Duc's suggestion (LINK to PDF). I tried it with a red filter once for landscape, but the contrast was just a bit too much for my tastes. I have never tried it with an IR filter, though I have seen some impressive results.

This one was taken with a medium yellow filter (Wratten #12, minus blue). The shirt and hat were bright red!

Dramatic is right. This one was shot with the K17's built-in orange filter.

Hard to develop and hard to scan but they can yield very nice results:

Thanks! Same here, moved house, changed jobs. Big back log of negatives and digital to scan and process. Looking forward to seeing your shots.
