I spent the last hour doing something immensely interesting. I digitized an old negative using my digital camera. Equipment: Canon EOS M, Canon EF-S 60/2.8, Ipad as lightbox.

After some digital darkroom kungfu

This would have been originally shot with the Konica FC-1 with the Hexanon 85/1.8 on Kodak BW400CN.

 

The "grid" texture is due to the pixels of the Ipad's screen.

 

This is all quick and dirty, my first ever negative scanned with a digital camera.

I raised the negative further off the iPad screen, and now the pixels are no longer discernible. This is really fun.

 

This would have been shot with the Pentax Spotmatic with the Super-Takumar 50/1.4 on Kodak BW400CN.

I like the BW400CN. The tonality is very smooth, though I generally like my B&W to be contrasty.

I may yet get back into film. Only this time, I'll develop then digitize the negatives myself. Here the Black Don

However, I think it makes more sense to shoot medium format. Am looking at TLRs, prices are very low nowadays. Here's an example from a Rolleiflex shot by someone.

just found out that bang bang geng @ publika scans negatives at full frame (36x24) 20mp resolutions (i just dropped off a roll of kodak ultramax 400 yesterday for processing and scanning).

 

kotmj, you may want to consider their negative scanning services, though i don't know how much they would charge for it.

Dude how much to process a roll of 35mm negs at ggb? I just discovered a few rolls of unprocessed BW400CN from my student days.

Problem with ggb is it is in a very remote corner of kl that I almost never go to. There is a shop here in Bentong I may try out. More centrally located.

The pic of Suhaimi is very grainy. And high contrast, like newsprint. I'm pretty convinced I want to shoot monochrome on medium format, show the Armoury guys their Leica Monochrome has its match; looking for a suitable TLR on ebay as we speak... here something for inspiration...from the workrooms of Henry Poole.

As you can see, it all went downhill once 35mm became prevalent.

to be honest, that picture of suhaimi wasn't scanned at the best possible resolution. i wouldn't necessarily say everything went downhill with 35mm, though medium/large format would definitely yield more 'resolution', of course. for one, i don't really mind the graininess and the high contrast (which i find to be quite attractive in certain black and white shots).

 

i'm very curious now to see the scanned results of my ultramax 400 (though i'm not sure if there are any shots worthy of sharing with the public).

nikkor 70-180mm f4.5-5.6 micro

fuji velvia 100f (expired)

 

the color on this shot is actually off, due to the expiry of the film. what is seen here is the result after some digital correction in lightroom.

 

but should the correction have been done?

35mm used to be the Instagram of its time.

How would 35mm be the Instagram of its time, apart from its lower barrier threshold? 35mm is still pretty much subject to the same shooting and chemical processes that its larger format cousins go through.
