I was looking for a new eyecup for my A6400 and looked for some cheap(er) film, but I noticed that a lot of film was sold out, specially colour negative film. The only negative colour film that seems readily available is Ektar - I can find Portra, C200, Gold etc. in some shops, but not all.

Just an observation. Don't know what it means....

I found a roll of Kodak BW400CN that died in 2010. As I'd read that c41 chemistry could be processed in B&W chemicals, I loaded it into one of my old Autoreflexes and I've finally got through it.

It does process, but it sure is weird:

As you can see it comes out very brown. This shot is with quite strong light shining through, but at first I thought there was no image there at all. It does scan OK though...

Isn't it just orange base layer of C41? Scan in greyscale

More brown than orange... (which may be due to the R09)

Why would Rodinal (R09) make it brown? It does not do that with true B&W films. I think it is the orange base that might turn more brown.

But it seems normal:

I'm not sure about the natural base colour for BW400CN, but I seem to remember that XP2 was a strange colour (indigo?). I did a colour c41 film in R09 a while ago, and in a similar way, thought the film was entirely fogged, only to see a vague image coming through.

The Scanner coped, although it was showing some stripes, which I guess are 'noise' from the scanning (the scanner is 20 years old now).

This film, shot with a Konica Autoreflex T3n, using Kodak BW400CN C41 film, stand developed in 1:50 R09 for something like 90 minutes. I've seen a suggestion that you should try to develop with the R09 hot (closer to 30 degrees than 20) and might try this the next time I try this cross development stuff....

Perversely, while using an Automatic camera that functions well, I seem to have shot a lot of these with a manual fisheye lens...

BobJ 17.8 - frame 26 - Lesness again, these blocks would have held columns that lines the main congregational space.

OK, let me have some fun.
The first 120 film. Kodak Portra 160 from the Minolta Autocord.
Thus:
- the first medium format
- the first film from Autocord (square!)
- first framing in the 'strange viewfinder' (left = right etc)

These photos are at least reasonably properly exposed. Another, B/W film, Fomopan Classic 100 came out badly. Overexposed, too contrasting. They are not suitable for showing.

And four frames (the lab sent me 11 - I don't know what happened to the twelfth)

#1


#2


#3


#4
Sony A99II with Sony, Minolta, Sigma, Tamron A lenses, Sony A7R with Minolta MD lenses, Sony A6400 with Sony E lenses.
