by the way, the prices of the film sold at BBG are inclusive of processing and scanning fees. just be sure to retain the box that contained the film you bought from them.

 

and if you're looking for scanning services only, it would set you back rm8. i forgot to ask about standalone film processing fees though.

 

as for the quality of the scans, i think it's quite decent, to say the least.

i'm not too sure.

 

but the overall experience has been pleasant so far.

 

so much so that i've just loaded an expired tmax 100 into the yashica about ten minutes ago, and looking forward to finishing the roll soon so that i can have it scanned.

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?

 

I've only ever seen grass pics work in contre jour compositions

I've never actually shot real B&W film before. Thanks to this shop called Geng Geng Beng (directly below BIG) at Publika, I bought my very first roll. Fujifilm Acros 100. The price of the film includes self-processing using their darkroom -- I find this a bit unusual (what if I inadvertently put the place on fire?).

 

Here's the roll next to my Spotmatic.

they're trying to get you to come back, through the all-inclusive pricing. i think it's pretty smart.

 

but what do you mean you've never shot with real black and white film? i thought you shot a few rolls of bw400cn?

BW400CN is not real B&W.

Why, because BW400CN is C-41?

 

Nice-looking spotmatic.

The guys at b&tailor are photo enthusiasts, just like the Armoury guys. Here you see him with a Leica M3, collapsible Elmar, and Voigtlaender VC II meter.

It looks almost digital, this picture. Probably slide film. B&tailor.

Urmmm, that's because it's not a selfie. It is digital, shot by someone else.

Oh no, it's gotten out of hand. Just bought another camera. The Nikon FM.

In the early 80's, the Americans fought the Soviets in, among other places, Afghanistan. A twelve-year old Afghan girl, Sharbat Gula, lost her parents to Soviet bombings. Along with her grandmother and siblings, she walked on foot over to Pakistan, to the Nasir Bagh refugee camp. There, Steve McCurry, now a legendary National Geographic photographer, took her iconic photo.

Last night, I saw an auction for the exact sort of lens used to shoot that photo. McCurry used a Nikon FM2 with the Nikkor 105/2.5 AIS. And there, on eBay, from Japan, was a mint 105/2.5 AI. For a very reasonable price. You have no idea how much I wanted to buy it. I came so close to buying it.

What ultimately stopped me was the focal length on a crop sensor body. It was too long. I already had the right portrait lens -- the Nikkor 50/1.8 AI. Today, I took it out for some shots to console myself that I really needn't have that 105mm. I am shocked by how good the 50mm is at portraits, even wide open.

I just felt like taking a picture of this.
pentaxk5014_zpsns2yyunn.jpg

I've owned 3 versions of this lens; in screw mount, in K mount, and in the M mount. The screw mounts are smaller, and completely of metal, but except for the final iteration, does not have multi coating. The M version has all extraneous height shaved off, not to mention contains plastics and a cheaper construction. For me, the K mount version pictured above from 1975 is the ultimate 50/1.4 from Pentax. Build quality is uncompromised; it has multi coating; it has a metal engraved front bezel; and it wasn't made too short like the M version which came after it. In person it is a very impressive piece of work.
