    Is it wrong that I flicked the XPan into normal 35x24 mode for a ew shots in Bulgaria? It feels wrong. Kodak Portra 400

    Some more love for the XPan from me. Tempted to sell everything else and just shoot with this all the time! 45mm + Kodak Portra 160

    Me : "I should sell the Xpan. It's just too much money for something I don't use often enough" *gets scans back* Also Me : "The XPan is amazing! Why don't I just shoot everything in that format and sell everything else?" Repeat endlessly. Bulgaria | Xpan | Kodak Portra 160 (why does Flickr...

    Glad you enjoyed it, Steve. I always think I should sell it because of it's price but then I get scans back and realise I can't!

    Thanks Chris. This is looking towards the Rila National Park from the main road that runs through Rila. :)

    Got my first scans for a while back yesterday. A last minute trip to Bulgaria in February after a recommendation on Instagram. Still going through the photos. A lesson that I often have after a trip is that I should have shot more frames! Oh well, Vietnam next. I will try and do it then...

    Beginner Developing my first film - any tips??

    I am considering selling my V700 because home scanning is horrendous for me. Can't get anything close to those with 35mm or 120.

    Our very own @RichieTee after our hike up Dinorwig slate quarry. I liked the light coming in through the window so had to stop to make a couple of quick frames. Pentax 67ii + Kodak Portra 400

    As always, lovely, lovely XPan images. Mine is on holiday with Steve for a few weeks, but life ain't too bad, I have a Chroma in exchange. :)

    That's very kind of you to say, thank you. The full set was with the 105mm.

    I did my first portrait session recently with someone who wasn't a model or a at a wedding. A young Architect from London travelled up to Liverpool to let me make some portraits of her. :) Pentax 67ii & Kodak Portra 400

    Highlands to get new darkroom facilities.

    I agree, two days of teaching and learning for £168 is not bad at all, in fact I would say very reasonable. Especially given the expense of film alone in 5x4 and then dev costs pus the expertise of teaching combined with people actually wanting to make a profit from it (god forbid), then I...

    HA! It's actually Vietnam and it's gonna be tough to leave medium format behind but I think I am at peace with that decision!

    That second one for me is stunning. Clicked through to Flickr for a bigger look! Love it. (must not buy a large format)

    Film Developing in the UK

    As I have said previously, home scanning for me is nowhere near what I can get form a lab. Other people seem to manage really great results with the V700 including a friend of mine, however I can't seem to do it. Then there is the additional dust spotting as well as colour correction for...

    Film Developing in the UK

    Had to use AG recently because I had some slide to develop. The service for me was fine, however the cost of returning your negs/positives is too prohibitive for me to make it a regular thing. Fortunately I don't shoot a lot of slide (rarely - although it is beautiful to look at), so I will...

    I think essentially we agree on the ideas. You have just put it better than I can often manage in words. Your last sentence about digital and record shots would also apply to me, but now I have no need for record shots any more, hence dropping digital altogether.

    Ilford Delta 3200

    That's a lovely album of Delta 3200 shots. I too really like it as a film. Shot it in 35mm and 120 at a couple weddings (massive grain in 35mm but cool) and shot a few portraits with it. I only have one on my Flickr though.

    Thank you. Have a few more on the roll that might be ok, but thought those fit together. It's a wonderful camera. Can't wait to use it more. Think it's gonna have to come to Vietnam.

    Thanks man. Have a couple of MF ones too and some more on a roll that I have just posted and am waiting for. Obviously not as dedicated landscape as yourself, but something different perhaps.

    I hope I haven’t. Like I say, it’s easier to talk about this stuff I find. They don’t let me take shots on film which is how I prefer to take photos. It’s not the case for everyone and there are merits to both. It is, like most photography and art, subjective.

    Scan day! Just got a few random rolls back, one from the Xpan. Not in the same league as @FujiLove with this camera, but I do love the format. I am definitely not going to sell this one and try and shoot it more to try and learn how to best use the aspect ratio. From a little hike around...

    #hipster

    Whilst I agree with it being how you want to portray your own images and choosing the right thing for the given situation, I don't agree that it's about the gear. For me, it's about the medium rather than the gear. Similar to someone choosing oil paints over watercolours perhaps? I dunno, but I...

    M3 off to Miles Whitehead

    I decided to keep the 67 so will be shooting both. Will probably keep using the lab I use currently as I have a good relationship with them and I will keep working on the weak link, me.

    M3 off to Miles Whitehead

    Processing is fine, it's the scanning that lets me down. I just can't get it to a level where I am happy with it. That combined with the time for colour correction, dust spotting, general faffing about, I can get the files back just how I like them, leaving minimal work to do.

    Just had the email to say my camera is ready. Looking forward to getting it back and shooting it to death. Gonna cost me a fortune in processing but I really just wanna shoot everything at the moment.

    "it left me cold", a sentence I have said many times when referring to looking back at my digital images and often whilst shooting them. I went through exactly the same. Looking at them and judging the qualities of the camera and making sure boxes were ticked as to what was 'correct'. The F3...

    High saturation 400 ASA suggestions please

    I’ll see how it copes in Bulgaria first. Also, I feel like Portra has come down in price recently.
