Venice Italy - June 2018

100TMAX - 50 Summicron - M6

Ha, we stayed not far from there. This is between Zitelle and Redentore "bus-stops"? We stayed next to the Hilton, behind where you took this from. And back there in a month or so.

Many thanks, Philip.  Very useful info!

I understand your reaction, Adam, and initially I was also surprised. But I realised quickly how very much can be achieved with the excellent Ilford Antistaticum cloth and general cleanliness around the workspace. It is very easy to wipe the film holders (which are bendy flexible and magnetic) once they've been attached and this effectively removes most dust. 

 

As Chris said, Flexcolor has a software-based dust removal feature called Flextouch and it is remarkably exact with negligible effect on image sharpness unless one goes over a certain limit. The drawback is, I have found, that it doesn't have the certainty that digital ICE gives (because it uses IR light to actually light up the particles) which means that I still need to look over the image at 100% so little time is saved. 

 

Not having digital ICE might put you off from buying one but there are many many other aspects to a Flextight which are well worth the upgrade.

 

I bought mine used and as a few of the members here know I was a little bit unlucky with it due to poor handling in shipping (they're large and heavy precision machines), but it is about to be sorted on warranty so all good. It's the only one I've ever seen used. 

 

In case you're considering one I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have.

 

 

 

 

Really lovely, Patrick!!

Got some B&W back from Ilford US!

Last Saturday I tried a roll of Kosmofoto Mono 100 at the beach. The film is a rebranded Fomapan 100, in fact if you lift the cassette artwork, there's a Foma logo! I developed in HC-110 dil B using Fomapan 100 times, because Kosmofoto does not provide times for HC-110 (actually they suggest not to use it ...).

Anyway, I have used Fomapan 400, but it's my first 100 iso roll. It looks somewhat grainy to me and I got really thick and dense negatives.

Maybe I'll try the last roll at 50 iso. I don't know. I'm never too happy with 100-125 iso films.

It has a vintage look, though, Just like Fomapan 400.

Well with results like these I don't understand why one shouldn't use HC-110. This photo is very nice indeed.
