    Bloody Eurosport app just forced me to upgrade. It won't work without location on and since I'm in Spain I now have Spanish commentary and no option to change it. :(

    I'm normally in Catalonia for the last week of the Vuelta and look forward to the Spanish commentary on TVE (even though I don't speak Spanish). It's certainly better than Carlton Kirby.
    They do split screen during adverts too with the coverage on one side of the screen, advert on the other.

    Strong page, especially @Rik_Van_Looy wet runner and @Well_is_it tower.
    @mi7rennie photos makes me feel clucky, and that's normally a rare occurence.

    @Well_is_it was the bird in the shot a happy accident or planned for ? Really adds to the photo

    Thanks all.

    @mi7rennie Got my eye on something (if the seller ever responds to me..), but will keep your camera in mind if it falls through.

    For those of you shooting half-frame, how do scans come back from developers (filmdev in particular) ? Do you get a scan of the full 35mm frame (ie two pics), or do they scan each half frame separately ?

    Also, on a camera limited to 200 ISO, is there any benefit to shooting 400 ISO film and pulling to 200 in low light conditions ?

    Considering taking the plunge into half-frame but the camera is limited to 200 ISO max.

    I think most places do Fuji Pro, Kodak Ektar and Portra for around £25-£30 for a box of five.
    Ilford B&W are usually £4-£5 a roll.

    Not aware of anything cheaper sadly

    No, that's helpful thanks. If 500px isn't vastly different or better than flickr I won't bother.

    Would be a shame if flickr closes because of the popularity of Instagram, they both appeal to different groups.

    I like Superia too, nice halfway house between Colour Plus/C200 and Ektar/Portra etc.

    Typically, they've discontinued a large swathe of it - 200 and 800 ASA and 24 exposure versions. Leaving the 400 36 exposure as the sole remaining film.

    Anyone use 500px ?

    Want a sharing service with a good, inspiring community. I discovered a few people I like via flickr, but it seems to be mostly people working to build a social media prescience by liking photos hoping for stream views/likes/follows in return.

    I guess 500px is probably similar ?

    Tried sending to filmdev ? Sadly they don't help you for E6, but £5 for C41 develop and a medium sized scan works out reasonably well. Use a cheap film like Kodak Colour Plus and you can get costs down to £9 for film+develop+scan (inc P&P). Probably the cheapest you do it outside of processing yourself ?
