Hello I need some advice about film developing in new york. i will stay there for about 2 month starting august and i would like to know if i can work straight on film there. i would like to leave my M8 at home and bring only my M6 and Olympus Snapshot Film-Cam. Where can i get quick development (2-3 days) incl. scans for a good price? high res scans prefered, because i have to work with the pictures right away and won't have a filmscanner there. thanks for your help. berni
Good Afternoon, I'm not at my computer now so it wont be later until I post some samples of the problem I'm describing. Revisiting film, I've developed two rolls of Delta 100 using Illford chemicals to box specs. When I scan the negs using my Plustek 8200 and view on screen at 100%, the images are soft, lack contrast and grain, and difficult to determine where the focus point is. I enjoy the process and images alot, but am missing a alot in terms of sharpness. I have had decent results printing (digital) up to 8 x 11 inches but am not confident in going any further. The negs. are moderately physically flat and I scan the images at 3600 dpi with everything in Sivlerfast 8 turned off. The TIFF image is then imported into LR5 where sharpness can be improved very slightly. I have noticed I am able to bring a decent amount out of the shadows. My thoughts are... 1. Camera Shake- The travel on my M6 shutter release is a little further than what I'm used to 2. Underdevelopment- Its winter in Sydney and I think the temp might be dropping during development 3. Water is hard in Sydney and I will have to use Distilled water 4. Plustek is sitting on a soft coffee table and shake is causing the problem 5. Plustek is out of focus... I really hope not 6. Leica M6 isnt focusing on anything... I really really hope not I will have to revisit my work with trial and error, eliminating each of the above, but am sure there are some areas I am unaware of which you may be able to point out. Many thanks in advance!!
Hello everyone. This is my first thread here In the process of film processing, I understand that the temperature control is very important, but I do not fully understand about the details about it. First of all, do i have to make sure the chemicals is at the right temperature, or is it just the mixture's temperature that I have to worry about? Secondly, if it is just the mixture that I have to worry about, how do i make sure the mixture stay at the same temperature throughout the processing in the developing tank? Especially when the summer (currently based in Australia) is getting near, it is harder to just use the room temperature and develop, hoping for the outcome to be acceptable. If the temperature is crucial, is there any equipment that I can use to maintain the temperature or use the waterbath technique that I heard (dipping the developing tank in water and monitoring the water temperature ) ? For what it's worth, I'm usually dealing with Kodak Tri-X 400, developing using the R09 One Shot developer. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Beim Schneiden für den Scanner fällt auf, dass die Filme nicht wie gewohnt mit Bild-Nr. 01 beginnen, sondern mit irgendwelchen Zahlen zwischen 7 und 35. Nach der 44 beginnt die Zählung wieder von vorne. Gesehen bei Filmen der Chargen K'ODAK 400TX 1091-012 und 1111-011. Ist da ein Fehler bei der Konfektionierung für Kleinbildpatronen unterlaufen? Das ist kein Problem, es sei denn, die Nummerierungen von Film und Scan sollen übereinstimmend bei 01 beginnen.
