Film recommendations?

Just go on B&H or Adorama and see what they have for film.

Grab a bunch of Kodak Gold 100 36exp. Should be great for the colors at Disney.
Maybe grab some of that Kodak BW400cn film for B&W that you can have developed
at a local store along with your color film.

I love Reala and it is a damn shame that it is being discontinued. I have a small stock of it
in the freezer and am tempted to see what I can find and load up on it.

I bought about 100 rolls of Kodak 400UC before they discontinued that one. Glad I did as I love
that film.

I like the flipped scan better as well. Just flip it in Photoshop and you are set.

I'll have to try some upside down film scanning as well to see what I get using the Coolscan and
Nikon software.

Very cool shot. It is fun to use old cameras sometimes.

I bought a few Kodak Instamatic 500 cameras this year and have been loading the
126 cartridges with 35m film. Still trying to get it 100% but have had some luck.

I only shot Kodachrome once. Bought a roll in 2003 and tried it out. At the time I had the Minolta Scan Elite II and it didn't do very well with the film so I didn't shoot it again.

Had a few shots scan OK.

Those shots look great from the 18-35. I just bought a new one on eBay this morning. I hope
to get it before I head out to Sweden next week and then I'll take the *ist, 18-35 and Sigma 28-300DG with me.

EPSON V700 review

The Epson V700 did well in the above review. I have been tempted to pick up an Epson
for my MF scans, but just have not gotten around to it.

I was able to get my Nikon Coolscan V to work with Vista 64 so I use that now to scan my
35mm. I had a Minolta Dual scan Elite or something like that many years ago and used the heck out of it, but I really liked the Coolscan V much better when I finally bought it.


If you get the V700 show it off so we can see some real world results.

A couple from the Butterfly conservatory in Niagara Falls.
Canon Elan 7N, Sigma 150/2.8 Kodak 400UC






Two from NYC with Bessa-L and Kodak BW400CN






Haven't had the chance to get out with the *ist yet, but it is going to go to
Europe with me this summer.

110 Film

Yup. 110 is getting harder to find. I find it once in awhile in the local drug stores, but expensive.

Rip and reload it probably with way to go. I have to do that with my 126 cartridges and 35mm film.
I picked up a couple of Kodak 500 and 104 instamatics. Still trying to get things dialed in on the
reloading, but have had a couple of good frames.

I like Gold 100...have a whole bag of it in the freezer, stocked up when Wegman's was getting rid of it for like $.75/roll.

We had a plow day on Sat and I shot with Gold 100 and 400UC.

Nasty winds of over 50mph, but the rain missed us.

Finally I was able to find a *ist and grip. I have the strap on the way. Now to get a couple more lenses. I was looking at the 18-35 matching kit lens for it. Want to keep it small for travel.

Has anyone picked up the new I-10 and gotten to use it? Would be interested in you thoughts.

I was thinking of getting one for the pocket when I don't want to carry my DSLR/SLR, TLR, Instamatics, etc...

Still have yet to watch BSG..need to collect all of the DVDs first and have a marathon or two.

Firefly cast...Jewel Staite and Nathon Fillion...couple of great Canadians.

Lived in Lockport NY growing up was exposed to a lot of Canadia, went there all the time as it was a short 20 minute trip and watched more Canadian TV than US as I got better reception from Canada than I did from Buffalo. Who can forget the Hilarious House of Frightenstein and the Uncle Bobby show? ;-)

Best import...Labatt's Blue. :-)

That is all I was shooting. I have had many Minolta bodies...7xi, 9xi, 650si, 700si, 7000, 5000, 70, 7, but currently I only have my Maxxum 9, Maxxum 5 and the X700.


This summer I went to Valencia Spain and Budapest armed only with my Maxxum 7, 20/2.8, 24-105 and about 20 rolls of film. Good times.

Hey Guys,



Stumbled upon your forum here while reading the Pentax forum at dpreview. Glad to see a community like this for Pentax.

Primarily I am a Sony/Minolta shooter with the A700 and Maxxum 9, but yesterday I ordered up a White K-x as it it was cheap on Amazon and work gave me a nice gift cert for Amazon so it made it very appealing. I also was impressed with the high ISO and video capabilities I saw on the dpreview review of the K-x.

Can't wait to get it next week and start shooting.
