We decided to sort out the garage loft the other day. My husband especially wanted me to sort out all my old darkroom gear to “throw away”. Can’t belive how much expired film and paper we found. So have put black and white film into camera ready for use, should be interesting!

Great

Looking forward to the results. Feel free to post in one of the film-related threads, like I Like Film (which by virtue of a very kind exception by the powers that be permits film photos of both Leica and non-Leica cameras) or Leica M film photos.

I recently bought a Leica R3 with 50mm summicron, my husband has a M6 and I still have an old roll film camera which I occasionally use too.

I even found a small roll of 127 film and I have an old Halina camera from my childhood so will try that too. What is the best way to put film onto the forum as I do not have a scanner?

Thanks.

You could take them to a scanning service, there seem to be plenty around;

http://www.swanleycomputers.com/scanning-services/

http://www.pixave.co.uk/

and many more

 

I've never used any of these services so I can't recommend one. Maybe someone else can recommend a place.

 

or try to get your hands on a pixl-latr

Remember that film naturally loses sensitivity with passing years so expired film usually benefits from a few stops of overexposure. The general rule of thumb is to add an additional stop of exposure for every decade past the film's expiry date.
