Non start after inserting batteries

Insert the batteries but don't turn the camera on for an hour. Sounds a daft idea but it is believed that the slow trickle of power helps the camera and functions to wake up.

Sorry for confusing everyone.
I have been following the thread and wondered why a simple experiment hadn't been suggested (as far as I could see)
The only other thought would be to use either a dslr as a light meter or use a phone app.in a similar way.
By way of my experience using a narrow dof is OK but there still needs to be further processing on the computer to achieve the desired effect

Try experimenting with a digital camera using the same settings as you would like to use (aperture/iso/shutter speed). You may find your answer there.

The original image in the first post looks like two images stitched together, one focusing on the man and the second out of focus on the background.
Some bridge/compact cameras allow panorama shooting where this effect could be achieved

two images stitched together? Manually focusing on the right hand side to give the blurred effect on that side, using the setting on the left hand side? Just how I see it

Proper memory card

Make sure that the firmware is up to date.
My first guess is that the cards have too much memory for the camera. When the ist series was on the scene so to speak max card size was I believe 4 gb. Anything larger than that won't work.

Kodak BW400CN film

Isn't the recommendation an extra stop for films(colour) 10 years out of date- assuming optimal non-freezing storage. I shot a colour roll at 100 instead of 200 that was 9 years out of date.
I would have thought the same applies to this film although being chromogenic b/w might make things a bit different. I suppose 200 would be ok.
Is your lab busy and not using old chemicals?
Like you I liked this film, I thought it just shaded (pardon the pun) XP2 and was better than the Fuji offering.

I presume that when you turn the lens from 55mm to 18mm there's some slight change in that the lens gets smaller in length and then goes back to being the same length.
This is normal behaviour as the glass is in a tube which moves forwards and backwards as the focal length (mm) changes.
Most importantly are your pictures in focus?

Do you put freshly charged rechargeables into the camera and turn it straight on? I read somewhere (may have been on here) that sometimes you may need to put the batteries in and wait a little while before you turn the camera on.
I'm sure someone who has a better memory than me or knows where to find the reference will be along shortly.

There is something inside the coupler but I haven't explored what it is. Earlier in the thread someone described taking the coupler apart.
I can't measure the output I am afraid.

The input is not 5v. It's standard voltage which would be applied, the dc coupler is for Fuji np 50 battery which is the same as Pentax DLI68.
The usb adapter is a standard fuji clone so the voltage etc. changes via the coupler.for
In theory so much easier than other methods above.
