Film Pictures

I have a boatload of film equipment, 4x5, 6x6, 6x4.5 and 35mm and no desire to buy a digital camera. With lot's of Zeiss and Leica glass, starting over would be very painful, make that impossible.

So I bought a film scanner and after a day playing with it, I have the urge to post some off topic pictures.

The AT6 (Luanda, Angola) was shot with a Contax G2 and a 16mm Zeiss Hologon, and teh others were taken with a Contax 645 and teh Zeiss 80mm Planar (Lagos, Nigeria).

I wish that the WBCCI and Air had an active photo club!

In case you were ever curious, people in Nigeria get spam from Nigeria.

Here is one of Jupitor shot on Kodachrome with a 28mm Leica Elmarit-M and one from my hotel in Luanda, Angola. That photo was taken with a 55 year old Contax IIIa Color Dial and a Zeiss Jena 85/2.0 Sonnar.

Cool stuff

Love the pictures. I've got 2 crates full of pictures and slides taken over the last 25 years. To bad they don't make Kodachrome 64 anymore.

I've heard Wal-Mart can scan slides. Do you know about this?

Pick,

Yes, Walmart can scan and give you photos or digital media made from your slides. If you go with prints then get the digital copies too, they are only a few cents extra and well worth the cost.

I did this and my sister has used them too. I also had all of my Fathers 16mm and 8mm film transfered to a VHS and DVD there. Another great job - the processing center even went the extra step in putting them in time sequence by looking at my age in the films - they almost got them all in the correct order. If you label them they will do just that order.

I do not know who their sub-contract film company is but the service we got was great. Only issue with the film was it was returned on one big reel but can easily be returned to the small reels as they left plenty of length on the splices.

jacarape - what brand of slide scanner did you get and why?

I have many trays of slides. I use a HP Scanject 4890. It does a great job on slides, documents, negatives, flat scan on printed pictures, very versatile and scanning can be be done in PDF format and many other options. Corpping, color corection, angle adjustments. It was $200 two years ago.

The film was Kodak Kodachorme ASA 25

Love the pictures. I also use Leica. Had an M6 and bought a MP last year. No desire to go digital and will probably shoot film until you can't buy it any more. You can still buy Kodachrome 64, just look on the B&H website.

I have gone 100% digital. Having used the Nikon F series for years.

Here is a typical digital pic.

jacarape,

I don't know your level of experience scanning film, so I'll just mention that you should be scanning for the largest file size manageable. For me that would be a file size of at least 50mb in 8 bit rgb or larger. I'd also set scan output to either a photoshop (.psd) or tiff file. Jpeg is a "lossy" compression if you need to work on it at another time.

If you have any ?, just let me know. It takes some work and time to get decent scans.

Jonathan

Hi Pick, try Photo Scanning, Negative Scanning, Slide Scanning, Photo Restoration - ScanCafe

Their site advertises 24 cent scans. Guys over on photo.net have said they do a good job also. K64 is still available. Wal*Mart sends it to Dwayne's, the last place in the world to process it. It will be gone soon.

Scanning isn't very easy, that's for sure. I also have about 2000 35 and 645 frames to scan.

OK but who is the guy up on top? Just who was crashing your photo shoot?

Keep the pictures coming. Love 'em.

Do you do your own developing and processing? I went digital because I was starting to have grandbabies and just had to take lots and lots of pictures! I was going broke! I also moved away from Asheville where there wer a couple of really professinal level shops, Iris and Ball photo. I did feel that digital took away from the creativity but as I get more comfortable with it I feel that it is just a matter of not being dependent on the automatice settings. I would like to upgrade to have the ability to change lenses but I have this big silver project that is sucking down all my extra funds.LOL
