    They are based in London and pretty sure they do next day delivery

  • twat.

  • It was better than some first posts.
    If a little late.

  • Merged.

  • Evening all,

    Does anyone have any colour paper (RA4 process) that they no longer use, maybe kicking around or gathering dust ...? Just on the off chance, I would gladly take it off your hands.

    I can swop for some worn down crappy solid pedals... or some old but ok cat eye LED lights. Or cash, depending on condition. Or some nice prints, if that's your sort of thing. I don't mind if it's out of date or otherwise been kept suboptimal if I can still use it for reasonable contact prints. (Obvs there will be some guesswork involved until it gets used but hey... )

  • Just got this from Flickr, amazing photos, undoubtedly more significant because they are from the 50s/60s/70s:

    Nick DeWolf was an engineer and entrepreneur who founded a company called Teradyne. In his spare time he was also cataloging his life with a camera. These amazing photos came long before Flickr but thanks to his son-in-law and archivist, Steve Lundeen, we can finally see his deep catalog of photos. So far there are 43,450! Take a peak.

    Photos from Nick DeWolf.

  • No disrespect Fox, because you're a genuinely good fella, but with the many film users on this forum, we probably do not a bad job of discussing what we all here do, or can do. We all can recommend sites where other photographers show there work, but that would be self-defeating, no? If I'm wrong, do excuse my interpretation.

  • could anyone recommend a decent film scanner for 35 and 120, under £200? Is this possible?

    I've finally had enough of over paying for low quality scans at my local shop.
    Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

  • GA2G thanks very much, never thought i'd get anywhere near 9600dpi!

  • never tried that model, but i've never had any luck with flatbeds when it comes to scanning film. always fiddly and take ages and never comes out as good as i'd want it, even though i've seen great results with the same scanner on flickr

  • These reviews may help make up people's minds, whether its worth buying or not.

  • I recently purchased an Epson V500 and been very pleased with the results, also has some colour restoration software for faded slides that works well.

    Currently a bit cheaper at Park Cameras

  • Got an Olympus Trip 35 off ebay in unknown condition. Case is disintegrating but the camera seems in pretty good nick - I've scraped off what's left of the light seal and given it a general clean. Got it as a present for a friend but I'm going to try it out for a bit first... can't not do, really!

  • from my experience flatbeds are fine for 120, less so for 35mm.
    But obviously if you need super-high quality scans it would be easier to take your negs to a decent lab anyway.

  • I use an Epson V750 - clarity amazing but i can never get the colours looking right, maybe just my poor Photoshop skillz... before that I used a Canoscan D2400, several years before so technology has moved on somewhat, but I always found the colours spot on, however it just didn't seem to focus right for film, things were always a little soft. At the time I was mostly scanning 120 pinholes so that didn't really matter! It's amazing how cheap a decent scanner is now. Hmm. Sorry, rambling no end.

  • here's a few photos i took last week.
    For anyone interested shot on a minolta hi-matic 9.
    Also i have a slight obsession with empty rooms

  • Also cheers for all the advice on neg scanners, got the canon canoscan 9000f in front of me and the 120's are looking great.

  • google how to make your own neg holders (they use tiny clothes pegs if i remember correctly)

    it's good to get the neg a mm or two above the glass to minimise moaré

    Newton rings, not moiré.

    just imagine how well resolved the grain will be.

  • Where is that, Casp?
