I've just moved to Japan and have been scannerless for a fortnight. Without space for a flatbed in either my tiny student bedroom or tiny student budget, I've now picked up the cheapest Kenko film scanner from my local Yodobashi Camera - it's a bit rough and the film doesn't sit very flat, but it does the job. Anyway, scanner issues aside, I'm snapping away like there's no tomorrow.

Both Super A, A50/1.7, Superia 400.

Developing yourself, too?

You're mistaken. What it is, is really really cool.

Not yet! But club registrations at the university are this week, and I'll be joining the photography society, who have a darkroom and seem to be mostly film based! Will be nice to get back into a darkroom after a year of faffing around with a changing bag.

Anyway, here are another couple of colour shots. I've been having my film developed at Palette Plaza photo stores, since they do 20 minute developing and if you ask you can get it done without prints or scans for a better price, and take them home to scan later! I'm getting my negs back for the same price I got them by mail in the UK. By the way, do not buy a Kenko KFS-500 Mini film scanner. It cost me 5000/$50/35, but you pay for what you get, and in this case that's not much. I get the feeling I may end up making the effort and getting another Epson flatbed.

Super A, A50/1.7, Fujicolor 100



MZ-6, FA28-200, Fuji Natura 1600

I'm seeing a magenta cast, are you doing much PP?

I gave up pretty much on my v600 except on b/w scanning. Lab scans using fuji frontier or noritsu give very decent color and resolution with little pp needed.

Keep an eye out for a Canon FS4000. Fantastic vfm and overlooked little 35mm scanner - picked mine up for 50 I think.
