Re: Ektachrome Is Back!

I bought a few rolls of the 35mm slide film that is available for pre-order from Freestyle Photo. It sounds like it will be $40 per cartridge for Super 8.

Re: Hit the jackpot!

What Minolta and lenses did you get? Are you going to use them? Got a perfectly good Minolta SRT 101 with a metal body body cap and a pristine 55mm f1.2 lens (away from it right now, I’d have to check on that for sure) with both caps, UV and polarizing filters. Some M-mount Vivitar extenders were a...

Re: Multiple Choice

Re: Paillard Bolex - help??

A lot of the value you have could be in the lenses. I would search eBay sold listings for your lenses, especially the Switars. Of course condition is important, haze, mold, separation and scratches are quite detrimental to the value.

Re: Film storage

I think some people prefer cardboard boxes because they let more air circulate around the film to help prevent VS.

Re: Film storage

I have a few storage books that are made of thin plastic. They look like books but when you open it they have holes that the 50' reels press into, they are quite cheap construction.

This is the latest on Ektachrome. It looks like 2018 now but it sounds like they are making progress.

Re: Hello from FILM Ferrania!

This is a shot I took with the Ferrania P30 Alpha that they recently made available to the Kickstarter backers. Shot with a Leica IIIa and developed in Rodinal 1:50. It's nice but still needs a little work. There were some scratches on the base and the slitting and perforation seemed a bit rough. Ca...
