The last of the fall foliage pictures.

67II & 100/4 Macro shooting Kodak E100G
That 100 Macro is a stunner. Lovely and clear. My film shooting now has a bit of a handicap applied. The local store (developer) is closed to film now, and will only send them out for processing - a two week process. I was expecting that.

Excellent shots of those fall leaves.

I just picked a nice super program for next to nothing, and ran a test roll though it. This bait bucket was sitting out on the street in front a of a shop in the small seaside town next door.

Back in '09 I tried a close up diopter on the 75mm / Pentax 645. Not so great. Expired Fuji 160NPS

My father recently went through most or all of our old vacation photographs, and one that immediately caught my eye was this picture from Ketchikan, 1993...



because of this one I took in 2011, 18 years later, on my move to Alaska while on the Alaska Marine Highway ferry from Bellingham. WA to Haines, AK.

I started shooting about a year and half ago on a small Nikon travel zoom camera. Now I shoot film exclusively with pentax bodies and lenses, both 645 and 35mm. I develop everything myself and use an Epson V500 scanner to digitize. I just love the look I me getting with the old pentax lenses (although my new Fa 43 limited is simply a stunner!) I gave my K5 away so it would atleast be used instead of gathering dust.

Black and white: Pentax 645n, A-120mm F4 Macro with tubes, Delta 3200 @ 1600, D76 stock
Dogs: Lomography 100; Pentax MZ-5N with M-28mm 2.8 using 81b filter.
Snowy River: Superia 400; Pentax MZ-5N with M-100mm F4 Macro
Well done. Wish I could do my own film.

Nice shots dog walker. That third shot reminds me of upland game hunting. I have thought about home C-41 processing, but really have no idea what it would take to get started. Right now I process my own BW film though.

Here is another test shot from the Super Program

Nice! There are many more expensive, better films out there, but honestly, Kodak Gold 200 has never let me down, even when very expired and pushed.

I have one or two of those Minolta Maxxums that is currently acting as a dust collector. Looks like I may need to take it down off of the shelf once in a while. A pair of minoltas served me well on a trip to europe a few years back, and I have neglected them a bit, mainly due to the high cost of replacing the batteries.

Also, as an update on my earlier post, I took the plunge and ordered C-41 chemistry. I should have everything in a week or two along with some film, so I will post, hopefully good results, here after I process the first batch.

I've been pretty happy with Kodak Gold, both 100 and 200. I think it's on par with Superia but better than the cheaper C200 from Fuji. I've shot a lot of C200 mainly because I can get it for $1.70 a roll new. I've not found a good inexpensive source for Gold. Not that inexpensive anyway.
I recently bought 40 rolls of Superia 200 which should arrive soon. That should be fun to try again as I haven't shot 35mm Superia in awhile.

I have a soft spot for AF Minolta cameras as the first real camera I ever used was my Dad's Alpha 303si Super. The 70-210 I have is a pretty low end kit tele that was given to me by my neighbor. I think it's a great little lens though

Congrats on the C-41 kit, I look forward to the results.

I just bought a bunch of fuijcolor 200 for about 1.10 a roll. Even though C-41 seems pretty straightforward, I thought it would be a good film to experiment with my first batch of chemistry since I'd hate ruin more costly films in the event something goes wrong.

Have you tried ultrafine for kodak gold? I haven't ordered from them before, but it seems like had gold 100 for about $2.20 a roll.
