The whole film are like it. I will probably convert a few to black & white, but I quite like it for some. I wonder if this is a characteristic of C41, or just the processing in that lab?
If you get it printed by the lab it can come out tinted on their printer and I've had serpia too.
It wet prints normally no tint!

The Kodak mono C41 had the normal orange colour to allow more neutral mini lab prints. But can make wet printing more interesting. Not tried myself.

If you shoot away from 400 ISO the lab prints won't look too good.

I have a thick-sided Styrofoam container that I use for my water bath. It tends to hold temp very well. I've used it for E-6 developing and it works great. For a thermometer, I have a 0-100C thermometer that came out of a chemistry lab. It's easy enough to read. I just have to convert to Celsius when I use it.

It's a very good lens, got mine from KEH rated EX+ - $159, well worth it as it seems to be in the same league as my FA Ltds. As a side note, the FA43's hood works on the M35 perfectly - got one on order for it.
It's a good lens but I don't know if I'd pay $159 for it - I paid less than that for my f/2 version (though only because it was on a camera body on ebay and not many people realised that the lens was worth more than the camera). The f/2.8 cost me 25 GBP (around $36) before postage, but I'll admit that was a bit of a bargain for such a rare lens.

These were shot on expired Fujicolor 100 in my Ricoh XR-M. The first is a double exposure.

Agreed - really under-rated little lens. Not sure if the going rate is $159, but probably worth it in isolation. Not the best example (missed focus combined with handheld shake at 1/4s...), but I like it:



Z-1P
M35/2.8 wide-open
1/4s
Agfa Vista Plus 200
Canon FS4000 scan

That's pretty striking. Consider cropping out the seat on the RHS?

Not shot film since school. Probably not the best choice of film stock for a reawakening
10 year (at least) expired, Safeway ISO 200.
Pentax P30. Pentax FA43

Crappy development at a local "lab" Home scanned with DSLR. Should really have shot about +2 EV.

I use Paint Shop Pro X7 for most of my post processing. One think I like about it is it has one-click photo fade correction that's usually quite accurate. I tried it out with your image. Turns out there's still a lot of the original colors left. Kind of a grainy photo, though. I hope you don't mind my editing it, but here's what I came up with. Looks like PSP might have overexposed it a bit.

That looks great! I dont mind at all. The film had very little life in it. Didnt really get much of any note. Lesson learned. Thanks for your efforts

Thanks for that Xmas. If I get anything worthwhile I will try getting it properly printed. I will also have to look at a scanner that does negatives

Interesting result - the original is quite intriguing as well.

I am interesting in your opinion of Paint Shop Pro for a beginner.

Being new to image adjustment, I have been looking at LightZone and Gimp (also being a cheapskate), but am struggling a bit to get simple fixes.

40 for PSP X7 (or 50 for X8) seems a reasonable price - is it a good option for a beginner?
