Fair enough. I gather it would be a fair bit of trial and error to get 'OK' results - time that is maybe better spent shooting and processing film that isn't so out of date.
Still, aren't you tempted? :cool:

I vote for shooting some, because why not? I find it hard to predict what the results will be like though.
On first thought I was thinking that film this old may indeed be a waste of time however looking around online has yielded some interesting results.

Here's some examples of Ektachrome that expired in 1984: http://www.35one20.com/2017/07/15/an-old-kodak-ektachrome-50-tungsten/

And here is a post from a blog that seems to specialise in expired films: https://expiredfilmphotographer.wordpress.com/2017/06/09/updated-shootingpro...-2-ektachrome/
Scroll down a bit and there are some examples of Ektachrome from the 60s and 70s.

Thank you.
Developed normally for 100. The film expired in 2011 so I experimented with over exposing by a stop and then developing at box speed. Conclusion is that the film hasn't seemed to have lost significant speed, however I like the different tonality when over exposed by a stop.

Thanks.
I was so convinced that the fence detracted however you guys all seem to agree that the opposite is true. :)

I finally had a look at the video. Nice shots indeed, I like the colour and lighting. I liked the video slideshow idea too.

Possibly, although that's not something I've heard. Maybe someone else has more info on this?
I'd be inclined to say the opposite to be honest. As the SS can conduct heat or cool from the environment during the development. For example in some recent hot weather I had to chill my developer down to 20 degrees. At the end of the development part the liquid had warmed up by 2.5 degrees or so. The ambient temperature was about 30 degrees and the water coming out of the tap was 28. The film was fine though and I expect that the temperature variation added a little extra push, which is what I was after anyway.

I think that this is a matter of personal opinion.

I personally dislike the Paterson style plastic reels and tanks, so I use steel Hewes reels and some no-name steel tanks. I find the steel reels much easier and quicker to load the film.
On the other hand some people have used the plastic stuff for years without issue.

Nice, that is a visual B&W feast. Did you use a filter? The sky looks nicely controlled.

I am only just getting used to using the tripod frequently with the Fuji 6x9, it is worth it though.
Cool, sounds like you'll have fun with the RB. There seems to be many good choices with the old medium format cameras. I have a soft spot for the Pentax 6x7 however want to try other types too.

Score! :) I like these product photos that you do. I need to get motivated to try some myself.

Why did you sell the 6x7?
I sold my 67 back in 2013. Still regret it :'( and still don't have a good replacement for it.

Thanks. Bit unsure which photo you are referring to though?



Oh my, that is a horrible work-around. I guess it worked though :lol:
Maybe I should post a photo of my old automobile then. It's a bit newer at 'only' 30 years old and is relatively free of 'work-arounds'. Saying that I do keep a wrench in the back seat pocket in case the starter solenoid gets stuck :o



Nice collection! Interesting that the Intel reference guide crept in to the photo too.

Congrats on getting the 600mm Tuco! I look forward to seeing some photos from it 😉 hope you have a solid enough tripod for that beast?

Makes sense. The attached image also looks softer - perhaps it's been compressed as well?

I bought out my local photo labs stock of Acros and a few more rolls from Ebay. This amounts to 20 rolls in 120 and 10 or so in 35mm.
At 8 shots per roll for the GSW690II that's 160 shots. Not that much I guess, maybe I should look for some more. I have enough for a couple of special projects or future trips however I do want to settle on another 100 ISO film for every day use.
Like you I prefer to develop in batches to save time. It's hard enough for me to find time to develop or shoot as it is.
Thanks for the explanation and samples, I appreciate it :) I also really like the sand dunes shot. It's a particularly interesting shot for me as that kind of contrasty light is very common around where I live. We are really spoilt for sunny days.

That makes sense. I also want to standardise on just a few films, however haven't settled on a 100 ISO film to replace the Fuji Acros yet.
Actually I was considering FP4+, just haven't gotten around to trying it out yet in 120. I would be happy to see some of your shots using the FP4+ when you're ready to post them. Also I will have a look around in case you have already posted some.

Nice! I think I remember this shot and some of your other rescans from years back.
Why don't you shoot 100TMX much any more?
