Here is a thread for you to test your old camera, test the developing, test the scanning, and also just play around before (or during) the real challenge...

As a typical test shot, here is a picture from my office with Mamiya RB67:

I visited my sister in Ottawa, IL and enjoyed taking some shots of their barn with the Fuji GF670 on Arista EDU Ultra 400. It all seems to be working OK, but for the challenge I plan to stick with A mount with a maxxum 3. I picked up a couple rolls of Tri-X 400 today as well as a reel for developing.

I find it very rewarding using a fully mechanical manual focus camera, developing the film at home..

Thats my first attempt actually its not an exact science, but I used this recipe and it worked; 1 litre water, 9 teaspoons coffee, 8 teaspoons vitamin C, 5 teaspoons washing soda. Its enough to do 4 rolls in my tank, shelf life is only an hour so mix it when you'll be using it.

Developed for 16 minutes (at 20c) agitating every 2 minutes, with constant agitation for the first 10 seconds, its still a bit thin. Kodak Stop Bath for 1 minutes & Ilford Fixer for 4 minutes. But I think best results would be gained from 20 minutes @ 20c..

Hope that helps! I'm just gunna get a bottle of Ilford developer for this challenge, less stinky

Jim,

What chemicals do you plan on using or recommend for Tri-X? I hear the rumor is that that Arista 400 (from Freestyle Photo) is actually Tri-X.

Regards,

Kelly

ExifTool and batch file. Sometimes I really write the full Exif to myself and add it to the file. In the example above, I just added the general info for all the photos.
Now, with my Maxxum 9 you are going to see the full Exif data - I have the data back...

You guys are going to develop the pictures yourself?

The rolls I have found are kept in a draw and expired 13 years ago.
I have to send the rolls to the photo-lab and get developed prints back.
I don't have the right scanner.
When the pictures are ready I have to scann them with my all in one canon scanner/printer (horrible quality)

Uhm.... what will this all do with the image quality...


And another question.. is post-processing with photoshop after scanning allowed?

I really have forgotten how to take pictures with the film camera..

I will need to use photoshop to colour correct and take out any dust or scratches.

Oke.. now this is really going to be a challenge...

My last film pictures are from summer holiday 2003.
I took one picture and made a scan.

But it is horrible..

No colour matches.
No brightness matches
The grey has turned into blue.
The sharpness is gone (on the picture there is)
It is not the same picture...

Jet, most processors offer a scan to CD service which may give you better results than scanning prints. It might also be worth getting a fresh roll of film. I just had a roll of Kodacolor 400 110 film of much greater age (I think) processed and there was virtually nothing recoverable from it.

Of course, some people spend a lot of time in Lightroom trying to recreate exactly this vintage faded image quality ...

My hands down favorite is Fuji SPD but I'll have to wait till I get back to Tokyo to find that. While here in the U.S. I've tried D76, Ilfosol 3 and HC-110. I think I like HC-110 the best. At the very least it is easiest to use.

I've heard the rumors about Arista too but haven't really been able to confirm it yet. What I did notice was that when I developed my first roll of Arista 400 with HC-110 the developed negatives had a strong blue cast to them. The only other film that I've seen that from is Fomapan. And considering that the package for Arista says made in Czech Rebuplic, I think there is a pretty high chance that it is Fomapan or something similar.
