Fair enough, I can't argue with that. Especially Number 2! :eek:

Hey... Isn't our forum here filled with gear heads? Or is that just the digital shooters? :lol::p

Cool shot! And not the easiest kind of photo to take with an SWC I imagine :o

For me since mid-2018 it's almost exclusively film and manual cameras. I'm going backwards :lol:



I find my photography is often better without the instant review :lol: counter intuitive I know, though I'm sure I'm not the only one...



As others have mentioned, this was true about 15 years ago however things have changed since then. In my time shooting film - about 10 years now - I've seen some products go, other new ones emerge, some reduction in retail film labs yet expansion in specialised ones, and from my perspective more interest in shooting colour negative film. Amongst other things. So it seems to be changing shape rather than dieing.



Personally I disagree with this and find film better for my purposes.



Me too! :lol:

Favorite film for low light photos with Pentax manual SLRs?

I haven't really shot a lot of low light stuff however recently found that I really like Portra 800 and Kodak P3200. Have also experimented with pushing Tri-X and HP5 to 1600 and the results can be pretty nice too. In my limited experience I would consider 'proper' high speed film to be superior to pushed 400 though. Of course, exposure and processing are important.

Unfortunately the only examples I have for Portra 800 and Kodak P3200 are family photos so I'm not keen to share online really.
Here is one example of HP5 pushed to 1600 in Ilfosol-3. If you follow the link to Flickr you can see it at full size.

Hasselblad 500CM, 150/4 lens.

Whoa, that's fighting words :lol: (I have both the LX and SuperA and much prefer the LX)



I wish! :lol:

For me it was the LX, 67 and MX.
(SuperA would probably be 4th or 5th)

Interesting announcement indeed. I don't think that I have ever shot on Ortho film. Will consider trying it.
Anyone here experienced with Ortho film and is looking forward to trying it out?

What I mean by "white balance" is that, for me, it looks like there is a yellow cast over the whole photo - shadows, highlights etc.
In other words whilst the mossy rocks are golden brown the whole scene looks a bit too yellow overall.
The key is to find a neutral tone somewhere and use that to set the white balance. For example looking at the water in the rapids I would expect it to be "whiter" and less yellow than currently.

Also be warned that setting white balance of scans and colours etc can be very fiddly :fedup:
And another consideration is - does the scan colour balance look the same as the slide viewed on a light table?
Because in most cases with slide film I think you'd want it to match the original, so to speak.

Not to say that you have to edit it; just an opinion in case it helps. :)

I think the white balance may be a bit out on this one, Phil. Looks pretty yellow on my screen.

I have no reference though I think I saw someone saying that Ilford said no to the idea of "Ilfocolor".
(enough hearsay for you in that sentence??) :lol:



Lovely job Frederic!



I still need to properly try the RPX 25. I only shot and developed one roll so far, however I messed up the development and ended up with extremely contrasty negatives. I also had problems loading the reel, as it seems this film is narrower than every other B&W film I've developed...



Maybe it's time to get back into it? :D

Living in a warm climate, my summer tap water is often about 28-30 degrees. I add ice blocks to chill down the water prior to adding developer.
Normally that works ok, although the temperature does climb during development too :(

Interesting. For me personally I would have no use for a C-41 process B&W film :)

Actually I don't really know what I would wish for from a new film. Ilford have a pretty complete lineup as it is, my favourites being FP4 and HP5.
Perhaps a new, slow, super fine grained emulsion?
Let's hope it's something good regardless. It could just be a revision.

Even so, it's cool to see that you're out using that monster of a lens.
The longest I've shot with is a 400/5.6 on K mount and it brings different technical challenges to shorter lenses.
