One of the things I like about the Film Challenge is the one-third keepers rule, and that is the meat of the challenge, I think.

Anyway, good to see the name of this thread adjusted. The weather is dry and brighter today, so I'm popping a film into the Dynax 9 and going out to try my luck.

Fair remark. However, the film specific themed threads are not added to the themed index and the film specific index is not pinned.....
Addy, except for the film alphabet thread are there any other specific film threads that would be good to add to the index? (Film (1) is already there for some time).

And which "film specific index" is it that you are suggesting to "pin"?
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

Well, this list[/URL]this one. Why not link that list in the themed treads index, so that it is easier for film people to find Film specific threads. I understand most people are only or almost only digital

These were taken to support an upcoming article at 35mmc. They were taken with a Minox 110S on Lomography 'Orca' B&W 110 film, stand developed in R09. Twenty four images on a cartridge, so here is a pick of 8...









(I think the edge of the developing spiral blocked the developer at some of the edges).

It's a really clever, versatile system.

Thanks!

What I've enjoyed about this and my previous outing for this challenge is the contemplative, slow head space using a view camera puts me in. It really is a different experience.

What I'd love to do is bring that approach to everything else I do in photography - I love the convenience of digital but something has been with that convenience.

On a side note, I've been using an app called 'Film Shots' to capture exposure data on the fly. It's obviously been coded by someone who is also a photographer. Highly recommend it - for some reason I forget/lose paper based systems, but this has been foolproof!

This set is all a bit non-standard. It is another attempt at using 35mm film in a rollfilm camera, and wasn't entirely successful...

The film (Foma Retropan 320) started off in the AgiFold, spooling from one 35mm casette into another, spaced by two full rotations of the wind-knob, but after a while there was a bit too much resistance to be sure that the film was not travelling smoothly, so I transferred the film into a Zeiss Nettar. I got 11 proper shots off the roll, of which I will show 4 here.

Stand development (80 minutes, 1:50 R09)

BobJ 14.1 Hollow men at Woolwich Arsenal with the AgiFold


BobJ 14.2 Lesness Abbey at an angle


BobJ 14.3 Vertical section of the walls


BobJ 14.4 Abbey doorway


The diagonal shots were to cover up any slight mis-alignment as the film went through the 6x6 camera.
