Film General Thread - Your true love edition

Old thread >>3144417

Most of us have lots of film cameras, from lots of different formats. But theres this one camera thats just special, the one you always go back to no matter how many new cameras you acquire. Which one is it? You can post a photo you did with it, too.

Post your beautiful grainy snapshits here, or discuss why Fujifags and Kodakucks can't be friends.

I've owned like three of these. It's cheaper than the mju ii and feels better in my hand. Plus, it gets 38-39 exposures per roll. Cheap enough to take out every day but good enough to like the shots you get.

I'll be an SQ-A shill for life. 11 years strong with mine. Here's a shot from one of my first rolls after getting it in 2006.
>>
>>3148236

I was considering a 500cm, but the SQ-A is a lot cheaper.

Excluding cost, is there any reason I should get a 500cm over it?

What should I look out for when picking out a SQ-A?

(Reposting from /gear/ since I didn't get any replies there.)

Anyone here have any experience with bellows replacement?

I have this old ADOX Golf II with leaky bellows and judging from some replacement guides on similar folders it doesn't seem that hard to replace.

I guess the biggest question is where to get the replacement bellows. There's this one guy from Hong Kong on Ebay that sells custom bellows for $40 a piece. There's also this guy: http://www.sandehalynch.com/camerawork/bellows.php
Anyone know of any other places? There's also guides on making your own bellows, but that does seem a bit too involved for my taste.

pic not mine.
>>
>>3148262
Do you expect to make huge size prints? Do you have a drum scanner for absolute maximum sharpness and detail? If no, then probably not. Hassey is all mechanical which makes it easy to service (by a qualified technician anyway) but also means that mechanical wear affects its performance and precision. So on top of it already being rather expensive, your best bet is getting a body and lenses which have been serviced to guarantee you actually get the performance you're paying premium for. Meanwhile, Bronica's electronic system is precise and reliable as long as it hasn't been kept in a damp shithole with the battery in for 30 years. I say get the Bronica, and if you end up wanting that slight performance increase, you can always sell it for the money you got it for and buy a Hassey. These things don't really depreciate unless you go out of your way to fuck up your gear.

I've used both, the hassy definitely feels nicer in the hands. But does it justify the price difference? Not in my opinion. I got the SQ-A specifically because I was a 16 year old kid paying for it by mowing lawns. I would've been stuck with 1 back and 1 lens had I gone hassy. Instead I wound up with 3 lenses and 5 backs ( 2 120, 2 220, and a Polaroid) for ~$850. I've had plenty of opportunity to 'upgrade' to a hassy since buying...but I fail to see a point. None of my kit has required a CLA despite me treating the camera like crap. I've taken in hundreds of miles hiking, shot in rain and snow. Thing's a beast. If my body ever dies I'll be buying another one no question.
>>
>>3148307

Yea I am eyeing a very clean looking SQ-A with three lenses (50, 80, 200), the prism, and two backs for $680. That seems to be the price for just a 500cm body.

I am loving 135, but that is mainly because it is so compact. Doubt I'd shoot more than a handful of rolls a year.
>>
>>3148206
It's hard to get 8x10 E-6 developed anywhere, shipping film holders out costs big bucks (and risks damage), and expired Velvia is hard to justify in any kind of professional context where the costs would be okay. So it's understandable that someone would get rid of them for the price that they're going to get used. A guy with his own plywood-lined film lab likely represents 1/3 of the set of people willing to accept that stuff. (he's got his own Jobo for example. prolly could get a 8x10 adapter for one of the bigger tanks. problem solved.)

That being said, I disagree with that guy's ideas about film costing big bucks in camera stores. It's true the prices are high, but the costs are also high: having (say) 50 rolls of Portra 400 in stock as 10 loose and 8 propacks would cost shipping (tens of bucks) and then $7½-ish each for about a $400 investment. To make that neutral at a 50% markup you'd have to sell 36 of those rolls before turning any profit at all, and that's before they expire. Adding onto that the cost of space, personnel, electricity, advertising, insurance, etc. it's likely that even at $12 a roll Portra 400 would be just a come-hither product. Not like Sacramento's a cheap place.

Even this being so, he's right about that not being actual support for your local business. The costs just eat whatever there would've been. Actual support is you finding a good lab and sending (more precious? less?) rolls their way; a lab will always make money from development (considering how cheap it is to DIY it) since a long-running lab's going to have paid off their machines already, or will be paying a constant rent on them anyway. Paying for scanning is a matter of taste.

Solid price. Beware that WLFs are pricey ($150)...so if you're wanting one it may be best to try to get one with a body.

The SQ-A was my main camera for a long time. The joy of using it outweighed it's heft...which really isn't tooooo bad.

Listen to these posts for they speak the truth. I only own a humble ETRSi and I'm still expanding the kit with lenses and backs, it's still my favourite EDC camera if you can believe that. But had it been a Hassy I would not have been able to afford such an expansion. Buying into a system like 500cm is just going to make it way too expensive for you, like buying a Leica for the novelty and mechanics while knowing that any other reputable 35mm SLR will give you at least comparable results.

>Acquire SQ-A
>Acquire glass
>???
>Profit! (By spending like a 5th of the Hassy's costs)

And if it ever breaks down on you plenty of bodies are still available at reasonable prices.

Cool.

I will check some local shops for one, and if I don't find something I like I will find one online.

Aiming for at least a body, prism, 50mm, and 80mm lens for around $600 shipped.

I'm afraid my bellows are too far gone at this point. Pretty much all corners have pinholes and there's this especially big tear on the bottom.

>tfw /fgt/ becomes /mfgt/
It’s nice to see so many people using MF SLRs, what does everyone shoot on them? Anyone use them professionally?
>>
>>3148457
I bet the only reason most people use MF SLRs is because the first generations of autofocus SLRs have all the engines and mechanisms busted by now and later ones (late 90s/early 00s) are either plastic horror or too expensive compared to a 50 bucks Minolta to even be worth it.

Also AF still sucks even in 2017 with the most advanced DSLRs, most of the times it takes less time to just manually focus that shit than waiting for AF to pick up exactly what you mean or going into the menus to pick a diferent AF mode that does.

MF as in Medium Format, not manual focus.

Still your points are valid. Although I do have an EOS 300v and the autofocus is decent I would never put an AF camera above a manual focus one in terms of what I'll be using the most.

I use an EOS 5 and it's a fantastic camera, but the autofocus is so slow and temperamental you might as well just use manual. I'd get something cheaper and smaller but as far as I know getting good zooms for legacy mounts/bodies is virtually impossible.

>>3148546
>horrible overcast UK weather
Tell me about it. I've shot 2 rolls of Ektar recently and both times the lighting was the flattest and dullest you could imagine. It's hard to persevere with Ektar when my prettiest photos have been with cheap film in better weather.
>>
>>3148560
You could always try a converter and use good cheap manual lenses. I bought an OM to EOS converter for the 300v and I'm using my Zuiko glass on it. You kinda have to freeball the focus since there's no split focusing screen but so far it's been working out for me just fine.

Yes, it's so hard to justify the cost of Ektar or Portra when it is so challenging to find good light/weather to shoot it. I'm hoping for some nice autumn days to use them.

All these points about autofocus are extremely true. Until about the F5 and F100, autofocus sucked balls at the level of the individual focus point. Presumably Canon got their shit together around then as well. But very soon digital took over and film SLR autofocus has remained either mostly theoretical or the domain of three-figure battery-hungry DSLR-alike bodies.

Saddest bit is how autofocus in every camera meant the demise of proper focusing screens. If you're using AF like you should, the camera will tell you if the bit you went for is in focus. Poof, no DOF preview in e.g. the F-501.
>>
>>3148383

This.

Will also vouch for the bronica sqa. Had one for 10 years now, never serviced it. Bought it in high school and probably never asked about that stuff. Dropped it from 5 feet onto rocks and you can't even tell. Lens and body took a hit and there's one tiny scratch. Lenses are cheap too.

AF works fine when you know how to use it.
As in, when you understand that it's looking for contrasting vertical lines to bring into coincidence with one another.
But at the end of the day, no AF system will be faster than having a lense manually prefocused at the distance you plan to take the shot.

i have a Minolta a7, which is one of their fastest focusing bodies. I use the camera when I know my wife or someone else will be taking pictures, no one can figure out manual focus these days.

But it doesn't have split prism focus screen, and it isn't user interchangeable. Considering an a9 just to get a good manual focus screen in it.
>>
>>3148643
The first (and only) manual SLR I've used is a Minolta X-300 and I can say I'm really pleased by the focus aid to the point I don't miss the autofocus from digital cams at all. It's also noteworthy that different lenses work better with the different parts of the prism. The 1.7 50mm works really well with the checkerboard circle and the 3.5 28mm for example is extremely fast and accurate to focus aligning the split image. I don't think I have a single pic where I've missed the focus, not even in my first roll.

The local camera shop has a version of this with kimono cloth instead of leather for $70.

So tempted to pick one up.

>>3148773
quick sell it to some other dumb hipster for $50. then get a QL17, if you fancy that sort of camera.
>>
>>3148784
I would've but the QL17 is pretty hyped in the UK at least and are usually £50-£100 depending on whether it's a GIII or not and I'm not sure it's improvements are worth that kinda money.

Because you need to make X amount of a film in order to hit a certain price point that consumers would find worthwhile. To have a lower cost, you need to produce more. Film has an expiration date, so now you need to be able to sell that amount before the expiration passes.

There just isn't the demand for high ISO film.

Have some Natura 1600

Minolta a7 saves it to memory (which can be uploaded to a pc) and marks the roll with the memory slot it is located in.

800 ISO is just one stop more light or faster shutter speed than regular daylight 400 ISO, you won't magically be able to shoot at night if there are no strong lights around.

For reference, this is the best night shot I've been able to get with Cinestill 800T exposed at EI 800: a grainy mess where everything not under direct light is almost pitch black, and afaik 1600 film doesn't make it much better.

>>3148971
That's an insane deal, check the information to make completely sure you're not being scammed with a listing that only mentions one or two of those elements in the text but shows the entire camera on the pics, I've seen quite a few of those on eBay. If it's complete, tested and confirmed working go for it.

Whats a good, cheap, compact, 35mm rangefinder?
I've been using an Agfa Super Silette for the past week but it's very unreliable. I want something like the Olympus Trip 35 but not as expensive
>>
Which medium format SLR should I get in to?

I'm looking for something I can hand hold comfortably, so probably not the Mamiya RZ67.

Been considering
Bronica SQ-A
Bronica ETR(s)
Mamiya m645
Mamiya m645 super

Since the SQ-A is square, it overcomes the problem of having to rotate the camera for "portrait". It seems to have an absolutely massive prism which is quite off putting, but muh larger negative.

Thoughts?
Does any of the cameras come with a grip that isnt that great?
>>
>>3148977
Also I'm based in Europe. There isn't many ebay deals on these cameras, any camera shop I should check out?

How about buying one from one of the million japanese listings?
>>
So /fgt/, M2, M4 or M6? Bg info: shoot 35mm 99% of the time, so M3 is not the one for me.

Looking for a body I can keep shooting forever if I want to, basically. I'm using a Bessa for now.
>>
>>3148972
Cheers m80, I'll check up on it but seems legit.
>>
>>3148977
>SQ-A
More expensive, slightly larger, 6x6, removable film backs (can take 6x4.5)
>ETR(S/Si etc.)
Lighter, a tad smaller, cheaper, 6x4.5, removable backs. Can vouch for it because I own one.
>M645
This is a hard one. Light and cheap but unless it's a very well kept 1000s model it has now reached a point where the bodies are old-ish and are starting to show problems. Non-removable film backs are also a con for me.

Rollei 80s is pretty fucking rad. Infrared capabilities , crazy tonality, plus virtually no grain, under the right conditions you can sort of fake a medium format look.

I've used it in 4x5, which was simple enough to develop, but 120 or 135 seems like a nightmare.

Even in 4x5 it's practically unusable, in 120 or smaller it would make more sense to just use charcoal and draw the picture yourself I think.

I've only used the WLF and I've never had such problems with it. It may get a bit dim when you are working in dark or extremely bright situations but the finder has a retractable eyepiece at the top which you can use if needed.

Is this a bad deal?

How much should an 80mm lens be too?
>>
>>3149073
Well if you dont mind, could you explain me the difference between the cameras, so i can buy the right one?
>>
>>3149071
Unless we're talking about upside-down dollars, $90 is fucking expensive for an X-300. You should be able to snatch one with the 50mm kit lens for $60 maximum.
>>
>>3149082
Oh ok, thanks, i'll the buy the x500 then.
>>
>>3149080

Not all that much really. The X=500 is a little nicer because it has the periscope for aperture in viewfinder, and will shot metered shutterspeeds in the viewfinder when shooting in manual.

I also prefer the winder on the X-500, but that may be because the one on my X-300 may be messed up.

If you like being lazy, the X-700 has a program mode where all you have to do is focus.
>>
>>3149086
I settled for the x500. Also a question. Can i shoot long exposure with the x500 and if yes, what film do you recommend i use?
>>
>>3149089
>Can i shoot long exposure with the x500

How long? It is limited by battery life. I think something like four hours is the max. Otherwise you can just use bulb mode or a cable release.

>if yes, what film do you recommend i use?

Haven't done long exposure with film yet. I guess it would depend on what you are shooting.
>>
>>3149091
Well, i was thinking light trails, like shooting moving cars or even some city night landscape, so i guess bulb mode/cable release will be enough.
Thank you my man, you've helped me quite enough.

interested in seeing washi w pics if you're willing to post, been thinking about picking up some in 120.

You probably wanna get a cable release then. Or a camera that can do shutter speeds 4 or 5 stops slower than a second. Pic related was taken with a Canon A-1 on Portra 160 with an exposure time of 20 seconds iirc.
(Excuse the poor quality, it's from the first roll I ever shot and it's just a scan of the print)
>>
>>3149095
>>3149093

Actually, I think one of the data backs can control long exposures.

This.
And I'm also interested in some Washi A (ISO 12) pictures.
In the meantime, have this pic shot on Tmax 400.
>>
>>3149138

Looks extremely soft.
>>
>>3149139
That's just due to the piss-poor out-of-focus and overpriced quality of a print they made there. On another print I've had done afterwards you can even almost make out the word "Auditorium" in the very background.
>>
>>3148823
Stay away from the M7. I don't know who the fuck would buy one other than some rich cunt. If you want a Leica, your best bet is a CL at that budget. You can find them under $400. That'll leave you just enough for a decent lens. I recommend the M-Rokkor 40mm f2 or Voigtlander 35mm f2.5
>>
>>3149160

$250 for a meterless CL (can get it repaired later if you want).

m-rokkor 40mm is great, but it is cheaper to get the Voigtlander 40mm f1.4.
>>
>>3148179
Same, first one feels better in my hand. Though the AF miss rate is quite high. Yes, I turned off the flash.

Anyways, I have the II with me all the time. It's small, fast, it's just handy.

Zeiss Ikon looks really nice, too bad I don't have that kind of money for now.
>>3149160
Apparently /ourguy/ still likes it even though the camera was significantly flawed.
>>3149161
I won't even bother with that stupid meter. I can actually pick up a CL for ~$120 but the frame lines are kind of weird. I still wanna have standard 50 mm and 35 mm frame lines for my usual stuff.

Again, thanks for all the advices!

You could just keep an eye on various craigslist equivalents, like once a week. Complete kits turn up every so often. Holding your breath for lab-box is silly.

I backed lab-box to the tune of the full set, 135 & 120 modules, two reels, etc. Their most recent update says they'll be starting the production of the injection molds they'll use to produce the plastic components. To me this means they'll do molds, then do molds again because the previous ones came out of the foundry a bit fuckered, and maybe start production of the plastic bits in late November or Q1 next year. I'm not expecting this to ship before xmas. Could be until spring next year really.

In my opinion the whole endeavour smacks of biting off more than they're able to chew. But I'm willing to give them six months over schedule before declaring it dead. If it shows up in my post office in the mean time, I'll be sure to review the living shit out of it.

>>3149271

Welp, ordered the replacement bellows and removed the old ones. Surpisingly the bellows didn't seem to be glued in place like in the Isolette videos I saw.
Maybe I'll also try cleaning the shutter since it's getting stuck at longer times. I also wanted to clean the insides of the viewfinder, since that one's a bit foggy but I have yet to figure out hot to take the top off. It almost seems like it's held in place with rivets..

Didn't have any pictures of prints at hand, so you'll have to make do with a scan.
It looks more shit scanned than printed, but not a whole lot worse.
Probably around a stop underexposed, but would still be a bit too lomo for any practical use with more exposure imo.
The light leak at the bottom of the frame is a feature, not a bug.

ive read pan f is akin to slide film, that needs precise metering. i dont remember it being that finicky. pic related was metered with a canon rebel, the rest of the roll was guess metered and they all came out pretty fine. camera was a zeiss ikon folder so god knows if the shutter was actually giving proper speeds.

tl;dr film finds a way

When you get your pics from the lab how do you guys digitalize them? What I usually have done is just put a piece of glass over the print so it lays flat and snap a pic with my dslr but this way a reflection appears too easily.
Any tips?
>>
If im going to scan my negs with dslr is 50mm f1.8 lens good enough?
>>
>>3149605
no you need a macro lens
>>
>>3149538
>Does anyone know what panf 50 will be like
Too grainy to be worth the loss of speed in 35mm, however I've only processed it in rodinal, so ymmv.
For slow film I prefer to shoot Rollei, either Retro 80S for extended red sensitivity, or Ortho 25 for reduced red sensitivity. Actually razor sharp, give interesting visual effects, and cheaper than ilford. I haven't tried the Rollei Pan films.

What does /fgt/ think of the Fujifilm Fujicolor Pro 400H? Is it a bigger meme than the Portra 400 since it costs more?
Should I get the Fujifilm Superia Xtra 400 instead? Is it the same film but for an additional tree fiddy?

No a reversal ring will make a 50mm focus too close to scan 35mm film. I'm actually in the same boat as you I'm planning on buying the cheapest zoom macro lens. Probably this https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/423725-REG/Tamron_AF017C700_70_300mm_f_4_5_6_Di_LD.html

It's definitely not the same. 400H is an excellent film, better than Portra 400 imo.
Just try a roll and see for yourself, instead of listening to /p/ tho.

I like the Superpan 200, pic related. Quite cheap and works nicely. It's nice to scan, a bit tricky to print.

Found an olympus superzoom 800 for cheap in my town. Worth getting? know nothing about this camera but want a good film compact
>>
>>3149516
Delta(,tmax, and acros) is(/are) most certainly finer grained, albeit like all T-grain film's, a bit more finicky with how you develop.
>>
>>3149538
It's quite high contrast, and if exposed well (err on over exposure obviously) looks fucking sick.
>>
>>3149599
That's literally the worst way.

Try taping the negative to something translucent (opal glass, transparent white acrylic, smoked glass, baking paper, etc, preferable without too much texture), and then putting that near something bright, like a window, a lamp, or a speed light. Then focus on it, take a picture and process it. You can auto white balance the film rebate as a quick way of getting the color right (after you invert it for negative film's obviously)

You could put it on a white phone/tablet/TV screen as well, but the LCD pattern tends to show up.
>>
>>3149605
If you have large negatives sure, if not you might want to find a method of focusing closer, be that a reversing ring or extension tubes.
>>
>>3149630
The cost depends on where you are, in Hong Kong portra costs less than 400h, in Germany 400h costs less than portra. To me they're interchangeable, whether I'm printing digitally or wet on an enlarger, I can mess about with colors and whatnot to what I want then to be. So I get whatever is cheaper at the time.
>>
>>3149655
Pretty much all zoom compacts are shit try find a fixed lens compact
>>
>>3149654
You can change the focus on a reversed lens you moron, it's just a much much smaller range.

you're losing almost all of the resolution of film by scanning (or photographing) prints. The prints your lab gives you are almost certainly low res to begin with, and photographing them further will reduce their quality even more so.

If you want to digitise your film, you'll need to scan the negatives in some way or another. Use a macro lens on your DSLR on a tripod, or buy a film scanner

>>3149711
they should make some positive paper 120 film. is there something like that already?
>>
>>3149704
Depending on lens and focusing system, on my sl66 with bellows focusing I have a decent range (almost usable), with a reversed 24 on a set of bellows I can go from decent macro to near photomicrography.

With helical focusing, it can be a few millimeter to maybe nearly a foot.

It's really more for adjusting focus than actually 'focusing on something else'
>>
>>3149714
Just shoot slides, or negs and print out with a texture filter sandwiched with the neg.

Literally don't get this paper film thing... Well unless you're shooting large format, in which case it can be exceedingly high quality despite.

>>
>>3148149
So I'm getting into medium format guys but idk what to get. I've used a Bronica sq645 before but I don't think MF SLRs are for me. TLRs are an obvious no as well since I hated the waist level view finder in the Bronica I used (Also I don't want to be called a hipster for carrying round a TLR). So all that's left is Rangefinders what would be the cheapest one? Preferably in 6x6 or 6x7. I heard the Fuji ones are pretty good anyone used them? Also where would be the best place to find them?
>>
>>3149745
>hating WLFs
might as well drop MF entirely.
>>
>>3149745
If you want a good price/performance/portability/ergonomics compromise then yeah, Fuji MF rangefinders are GOAT. Look around, learn about the models and you'll find one that fits your shooting style the most.

BUT you should also take a look at: Pentax 67, Kiev 60 (if on a budget)

Don't limit yourself to rangefinders only. On a related note there are prism finders for both MF SLRs and TLRs so that you can use them at eye level.
>>
>>3149745
fuji gw690 and related cameras in that series
mamiya press
koni-omega
folders if you hate yourself
>>
>>3149797
the fujis are the most ergonomic and easy to use of the bunch, downside is fixed lenses. If that doesn't bother you, get one, it's seriously the only pleasant walk-around option in MF RF land aside from some 6x6 folders

Mamiya press and koni-omega are brick shithouses, but ergonomically not really nice. Big, clunky, weight distribution sucks, WF is good but focusing annoying when compared to the fujis because of the camera shape, and can't really handhold with the long lenses anyway.

Also folders are fun, if only because they actually are "pocketable" (to some degree). Can throw one in your backpack or satchel among with the rest of your stuff as an EDC - would not really do that with a Fuji or Mamiya.
>>
>>3149797
>>3149848
How about the Mamiya 7's (apart from the pricetag ofc)
>>
>>3149848
What about the older Fuji's with interchangeable lenses?
>GM670
>>
So I think I hit the jackpot guys, pic related. Bronica ETRS in perfect condition with 75mm lens, hood, speed grip, AE finder, WL finder, two 120 backs and one 135 back all for a sweet £130. The 135 back is worth more than that alone so I guess I’ll just sell it and hey presto a free camera.
>>
>>3149867
You lucky motherfucker, I'm really jelly. Well done, enjoy it.
>>
Is 600€ for a fujica 6x9 with 65mm f/5.6 reasonable? Not that I could afford that, I was just wondering.
>>
>>3149867
>>3149869
Follow-up to that: sell the 135 back and get extra lenses for the ETRS.
>>
>>3149870
Seems a bit pricey, those interchangeable ones are usually on the cheaper side I thought.

I'm still salty from missing out on the 680 RF for like $375 CAD
>>
>>3149867
did you grab this off ebay?
yesterday an auction went for 250£

"Bronica ETRS with 75mm E-II Zenzanon Lens, AE Metered Prism, Standard waist-level finder, 2 x 120 Backs, Winder, Dark slide, Extension tube, and carry case. "

I'm so fucking pissed at the labs in my city. They're all so overpriced. Selling Ilford XP2 for 7.90€ a roll, while I can get it for 5.95€ online.

Other lab I used earlier this year fucked me over with dev+prints. They don't do b/w devs inhouse and sent them to a large lab. Thing is, I also wanted prints, so they said they'd do the prints themselves. But the new guy checked the wrong box and the large lab did prints. Shitty ones. See
>>3149138

Anyways, I had to wait 3 weeks and they wanted to charge me 45€. Managed to get them to only charge me "their" price for prints, which still set me back 18€.
Also had a single print redone, because it was completely off-center, which I sort of expected to be warranty, but they still wanted €1.30 for it. Prints there cost 30 cents, but apparently they charge an extra 1€ administrative fee, which is stated nowhere on their price list.

Thinking of trying lomography's dev+print+scan for 12€ per roll. Does anyone have any experience with that?

So yeah, overpriced films, shady business tactics and they still wonder why local businesses are dying.

Welp, I just realised I have 4 cameras with 4 different types of film loaded right now. I need to go out ASAP.
>>
>>3150268
Ah, right. R2Afag here, I've got 35 (nokton classic, sc) and 50 (the full Soviet range & a postwar japanese single-coated f/1.9) covered and ain't going to bother with anything else. It's enough trouble having at least a decent yellow or yellow-green filter for each thread size... fuckers cost twenty each these days too.

Also, wow, framelines for 28mm. Who'd've expected that.

Any things to watch out for when buying a used hassy? Is the 500c overly inferior to the 500cm? Price?

anyone have any experience with the metz hammerhead flashes?

Just got one and it doesn't power on, any suggestions?

That is one of the nice things about the m-rokkors, they all have the same threading.

Of course, my 40mm Voigtlander has different threading so it is pretty much moot unless I wanna spend another $400 for the m-rokkor 40mm.

I have some Portra 160 that expired in 1/2015 here. Do you think it's still usable? It has been stored at room temperature but the weather was quite hot for a few weeks each year. Should I adjust the settings in some way?

It was ruined the second they made it. Chuck that shit.

What kind of diffusion material should I have for DSLR scans? Everyone's saying it's easy, just use some plastic but I really don't know what kind of plastic I'm supposed to look for. Maybe I'm just dumb but what the fuck. The only rig that I've seen a good, descriptive image of was that anon who used a white mini fridge type box, a flash, a sheet of glass and opened up film canisters to hold the film flat. I'm gonna use a tablet as a backlight so i need to get the film off the screen so I don't get pixels, I've attempted with some paper but you can see the texture through the film.
>>
>>3148980
Decision made easier:
Want quick loading and respooling?
Then the M2 isn't for you and you should go for M4/6.
Want a black camera without paying premium? Go for M4-2/M4-P/M6.
Want to shoot 28mm in the future? Go for M4-P/M6.
Want a built-in lightmeter? Go for M6.

looking at getting an ae-1 program and was wondering if you guys have any suggestions for glass to get with it
>>
>>3150810
>>3150810
You need actual space between the film and the light source.
Cut a film sized hole in the lid of a shoebox, put the tablet inside it, position the film over the hole. Make your life easier by making a guide to run the film through out of tape like I did. Be careful when holding the film down that you don't deflect the lid of the box and change the distance to the camera, your shots will be out of focus if you're not careful.

All of the FD primes except maybe some of the 135mm's are fucking dank.
If you want a lense that will really exceed your expectations though, the 35/2.8 is absurdly sharp and light.
If you got mad scrilla, the 50L is also awesome.

Thanks, I've saved a few shoeboxes luckily so I'll try this. So this should be doable without glass?

Very nice composition, hard to pull off for a center composition like this.

Lads I'm making a mental list of all the color negative film available in 120 that is not discontinued. Got fed up of shooting B&W only on medium format. Please correct me if I'm missing some. Also no Lomography crap.

>Portra 160 & 400
>Ektar 100
>Velvia 50 & 100
>Fuji Pro 160NS & 400H

Any others?
>>
>>3150981
There's Portra 800 in 120 format too. My local shop just received a batch today in fact. You also have Lomography color negative film. It's cheap but sucks ass.
>>
>>3150982
Oh right, forgot about Portra 800. Cheers.
Yeah, nah, I wouldn't touch Lomo film with a 10 foot pole.
>>
>>3150983
Just remembered that Cinestill makes 50D and 800T in 120 format too
>>
>>3150984
Yeah I was just about to post that as well. Not a huge fan of the meme status Cinestill film has achieved (or its price) but I'll take all the decent 120 color film I can get.

i have this retarded question:

when one xpros slide film, what one gets in the end is some negative film looking super funky, or is it a positive film?

Results of cross processing slides in C41 is indeed a negative with funky colours and possibly a lot of grain (pic related)

Neither of those are colour negative films my dude.
Rollei CN200 however is, and is quite a nice cheap 120 film.
>>
I see some youtubers loading cameras without sticking the film leader into the spool. Instead they just let it flop around as a passive receptacle of what the sprockets push forward. And I do think my F5 does this internally as well.

Is this valid on all contemporarily rear-loading 135 cameras, /fgt/?
>>
>>3151495
Don't get CN200 lab printed in an automatic lab though, the lack of base colour mask will make them all turn out pink. Either do RA4 yourself, (which is fun and doable, above all, patrician) , bring it to a professional lab (expensive) or only scan it {plebeian)

Just developed my first roll of Pancro 400. Went for 9 minutes in 20°C using HC-110(B) mixed from last bottom dregs, but temperature towards end was 21.7°C so the final time was 8m30s to compensate. Fixing seems insufficient, did a two-bath regime w/ 2 minutes in first fix and 3 minutes in second fix, but lo and behold the instructions on the cardboard suggest fixing for 6 minutes in 1+4 rapid. I'm gonna cut it down and scan regardless, proof's in the pudding and all.

Results look dank as fuck though. Might be because it was also a test roll for a new old lens reputed to have very good contrast due to flare resistant design. Base fog seems high, or maybe the lowest bits would've developed in the last 30 seconds, w/e -- I'll refix part of the transparent lead and see if that'd make any difference.
