Thanks for all the accolades. I only process my own black and white. I wish I could get better scans, but I loathe scanning myself and I've had bad results in the past with scanners, mostly due to my own impatience. Fresh 800 and 1600 film is actually really decent when exposed well, with decent focus.

Kodak Portra 400NC

I liked the Portra 400VC and I also like the NC

I find the Bokeh on the Canonet QL17 to come off a little harsh (wide open, min focus), but for useability, convenience & speed of the camera (and cheap price), I think I'll come to grips with it. I snagged a fully operational one yesterday, and have a test roll of TX400 hanging off my shower curtain, drying. Hopefully have some scans ready after work tonight.

On frame 13 out of 36 of the Provia 100F roll in my MX. I hope the occasional frame hiccup doesn't occur.

Either Olympus XA or Pentax ME Super & FA35, Tri-X 400 in Rodinal. Sorry for the huge mass of photos, I just scanned the first four rolls from a trip!

here's something different from me - an actual photograph made using auto focus Pentax equipment. The camera's a ZX-L, the lens is DA 70 Limited, the film is CVS ASA200. Lighting via AF200T flash in TTL mode. The kitten is less than 6 weeks old, a new arrival. He's very pale yellow.

First image: home scan using Epson software and Epson 4490 at native resolution of 4800 dpi. It makes a huge bitmap/file. I cropped the center and then downsized it.

Second image: slight crop (off top and bottom) of a CVS minilab scan (at approx 1200 dpi) but no resizing.

I did touch curves and levels on these.

Observations: at 4800 dpi, supposedly optimum for the 4490, I note scanner noise in the image. I'm wondering if there is a trade-off between dpi and noise, sort of like with digital cameras...

Observations: the CVS scan does not scale up well, I made the same crop and same size bitmap & the fur on his forehead started to block up with ugly color stuff.

Observations: the DA 70 still works fine with film. TTL or no, close up with flash still requires some thought.

The top image certainly looks very natural in comparison to the bottom one. Excellent reproductions.

Pssst, Nesster - I think flash is bad for cat's eyes. No reference, just heard it somewhere.
