    Baby steps.... I'm just trying out the logistics of MF film. I'd like to get back into film again, but I need to see how much trouble it is getting it processed.


    No, I ordered it...it's just not the elite equipment most people measurebate about.

    I really wish I had space to set up a darkroom in my apt, I see darkroom equipment for free or cheap on craigslist all the time.

    Then I could shoot with the pentax :wiggle:

    No need for a full darkroom. I just develop the film and then scan the negs. You just need a changing bag (or light free room) to load the film in the tank. Then the rest is done at my kitchen sink.

    yea, I used to do that shit in highschool, what kind of scanner/device do you use?

    I probably need to get some new film, I think I still have 2 rolls laying around from like 2 years ago (and not in a cooler) :hs:

    Its way more fun to play around in the darkroom though :wiggle:

    True, if like me you don't have the right equipment.

    No laughing....
    I have a regular flatbed scanner, not intended for scanning negs. For 35mm I used the template from here: http://www.abstractconcreteworks.com/essays/scanning/Backlighter.html
    Place the film on the scanner then put a piece of glass to hold it flat. Then I used a CFL light bulb (incandescent flickers at 60hz and the scanner seems to pick it up leaving banding) in a Home Depot clamp light to back light it.

    For my 120, I used a coffee filter for the light dome. :mamoru:

    I had to experiment with different things to get it right. Too much backlight and it won't work, too little and there's almost no contrast.

    Obviously! :fawk: The problem is I've already bought way too much gear this year and nothing for the wife. If I come home with anything other than a duvet cover or whatever the hell women pine over, I'll be scanning the negs from the car.

    Besides...I'm giving it time. I've got her learning on my old Canon AE-1P, she developed her first roll last night and got real excited to see them "enlarged" so hopefully I'll be able to convince her the quality will be better with a decent film scanner. :x:

    Actually I rather shoot with my D300, but I wanted to try the Holga out for funs. Also, I have this itch every once in a while for a MF camera. So I figured I would work out the logistics of getting the film developed with a cheap camera before I dropped the bucks for used a Mamiya or 'blad.

    Now that I have that figured out....:noes:
