Thanks Brian & Pieter.

Pieter, I love the scanning process (I love the whole film process actually!) but others hate it. I think itís definitely worth scanning at home. Many now choose the DSLR/Macro route of scanning which seems pretty effective. I love my Nikon scanner though and will try and find another if it ever dies.

If you decide to scan yourself, take a look at NegativeLabPro for the processing. Itís an awesome piece of software and certainly made my life a lot easier. I was using ColorPerfect before that, and while itís powerful software, itís clunky GUI is a chore to work on.

Indeed very nice results Michael, I think frame 20 and 35 are at the top for me, but the grainy character works well in all of them.

I've shot Delta 3200 once, but at 3200 iso and developed in Microphen. See here, slightly more grainy that way, but not much. I've still got a roll left, so maybe I'll experiment a bit more with it this film challenge.
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

I have some Delta 3200 to be developed - shot it a few years ago, not a clue what pictures I'll get....

Just noticed I have film in my Contax RX. Maybe I'll find more cameras with film in it

Just developed my second ....count them - second roll of B&W and just dodged a bullet! It is my first roll from my recently acquired Dynax 9 and I really wanted to see if everything is okay with it.

I started the strip on the reel by an inch or so before putting everything in the bag but when I got started I somehow pulled the strip off the reel! Try as I might I could't rethread it in the bag so in deperation I rewound the cassette so that only an inch was left sticking out and opened up the bag. Rethreaded the start of the reel (it worked perfectly the last time I did it) resealed the bag to start again. Got the entire reel loaded and........... scissors outside the bag!!! Since it is essential to cut off the canister to load the Paterson tank light tight I had a little curse and then moved everything up to the end of the bag opposite the zip closures, folded it over twice in the hope is would stay light tight, unzipped enough to slip the scissors in and finished the job.

Went through the entire developing, stopping, fixing and wetting routine almost convinced I had ruined the film but NO. It came out fine! It is hanging up to dry in the bathroom and tomorrow I shall digitise it and share the first third here. Just wanted to share this tale of woe for the benefit of anyone else starting out on home developing.

Lessons to be learnt: 1.Practise more with old roll and reel blindfold so that I can confidently start the roll on the reel in the bag. 2. Double check everything is IN the bag before sealing (I even had a check list next to me!)

Going to make a cup of tea now.

I cannot find any sort of workflow on the internet using Affinity Photo for converting a negative image (taken with a digital camera over a light-pad) , so I have developed my own. It is still a work in progress but seems to work for me and later this week I'll detail my workflow for anyone interested in doing it with Affinity.

Comments welcome

Seems your "9" is working fine Brian.

Well, I must say so is your ex "7" which I acquired. The first film through it was my standard FP4+ just to make sure I get to know the camera and check everything out. It was a delight to use and being able to later write down the exposure data and lens used for each frame is priceless. I always forget or make bad notes when in the field so that problem is solved when I use this camera. Handling wise it's very similar to an A700 and A850/900 so I was pretty fast "at home" using it.

Here's the first four keepers, a visit to Lille, a small village in Belgium and not to be confused with the much bigger city with the same name in the North of France.

1: Hof d'Intere



2: The back doors of hof d'Intere



3: A flower in the front garden



4: Decoration on a war memorial on the square in front of the castle


All Dynax 7, FP4+ exposed at iso 200, developed in "1 shot" 1:1 microphen, scanned on an Epson V700 and finished in Lightroom
1&2: + Minolta 35/2, 3&4: + Minolta 100/2.8 macro D

The second set of four keepers from this first roll is from a bicycle ride to the redoubt of Schilde

5: Front wall



6: Just a crack in the wall (they tried to explode this redoubt when the Germans advanced towards Antwerp in 1914, but only partly succeeded)



7: Opposite the fort some horses were grazing



8: One of them briefly checked me out, but after this shot it quickly focussed its attention back to grazing further


All Dynax 7, film data see previous post
1&2: + Minolta 35/2, 3&4: + Minolta 70-210/4 "beercan"
