    Seriously expired velvia turns all pink and loses everything in the shadows.
    2 years out of date and cold stored I would just shoot normally.

    I do it with a 6 year old (so an ancient relic in camera terms) dslr and an m42 lens from the 70s.

    If you want more pixels you can shoot smaller parts of the neg and stitch them together. That's one of the benefits of dslr scans. I don't do it atm but I plan to for 120 from now on.

    I put the negs on a lightbox with some card taped to it to keep them flat, and shoot them almost filling the frame with a dslr + old macro lens on a tripod.

    Then I invert the curves in lightroom, sharpen them a bit, generally boost the contrast, and fine tune the color balance (manually or with the eye dropper on something grey). I like to take a break between choosing what to keep and finishing them up so I sometimes export them as tiffs after inverting the curves so that all the sliders and everything aren't backwards...

    On these I boosted the saturation a bit too but I didn't do much else. I edit the shit out of some things tho.

    Just didn't get along with it somehow.

    In terms of bad points the lens isn't as good as I hoped and what you see in the viewfinder is pretty different to the picture you get, but really it's just I don't enjoy shooting it for whatever reason.

    Thanks
    Portra 400, maybe underdeveloped a bit as the chems were already past their limit

    with a Konica recorder i bought a little while ago, the only camera I've bought for some time at a non-bargain price and of course the only one I've decided I don't like

    Doesn't Porta 800 cost like one hundred pounds a roll? I actually like it - nice colors and grain - but I genuinely can't afford to buy it.

    If I wanted an 800+ iso film for a trip like that I would probably choose... portra 400. Rating it at 800 doesn't hurt it much imo (and that's without pushing) + it has more latitude and handles artificial light better.
