True. Actually Gehry did a pretty good job on the AGO.

Back in the day I used to shoot Seattle Film Works' [some kind of eastman] film stock. I really liked the slides, but the neg's I fiind difficult to color-correct because they are so different from the consumer c41 stuff my workflow is geared for. Is the Pakon a recent acquisition? ISTR you posting a query about film scanners a little while ago.

Both my father and I shot quite a bit of Seattle Film Works as well for a number of years. Yes, very similar to the Cinestill though they've gone a step further finding a way remove the remjet backing before processing so that you can dev their stuff in any old C41 chem.

I may have posted a question about repair or sale of my first F135 in the past 6 months or so... not sure.
I've had two Pakons F135 variants, currently the older/slower/cheaper variety "non-Plus". The "Plus" version that scanned this shot I bought a couple years back or just shy of that. It developed a problem with the LED assembly and I sold it a couple months ago. I wasn't going to get another but the original seller offered me half price on the "non-Plus" model they had (it is quite a bit slower but still easy as pie to use) about 2 months after I'd sent a short belly-aching email about the Plus dying after under a year of limited use. Very difficult and expensive to service and the price of them keeps rising to crazy levels - also somewhat of a pain to setup (only runs under WinXP) but once you have it's a breeze.

I still occasionally scan single frames on my flatbed or have my lab do it very occasionally for an image I really like, but for simple everyday web-sized posting, the Pakon is more than sufficient, and more importantly nearly handsoff easy. I thought of them as a super-duper proof set, but really I use it for far more than that at this point.

Here goes Friday the 13th (fingers crossed). My plan was to do some 'classic cars' but that will have to wait for another day. I think these are in the spirit of things... variously stylus epic 35/2.8, sp supertak 50/1.4, tamron 24/2.5:

Looking forward to seeing more shots of your new location, but will miss your NYC work.
