    First roll through the Mat LM

    Hey folks! I finally got a scanner for Christmas and scanned up some photos from a roll of Ektar 100 from my Yashica-Mat LM. I'd love for you to tell me what you think.

    Hmm, no link.
    You really should post the image(s) directly in your post ... I personally do not like surfing personal Flickr pages.

    You should also include what scanner you used.

    As much as I'd love to directly upload them, I always seem to get an error. However, I did make it into a set of just photos from the Mat-LM.

    Some of the close-ups are out of focus.
    The last one shows off the IQ.

    What scanner was used ?
    You should really shoot some E-6 through that ... if you have never shot slide film before, you will be amazed by a 6x6 slide.

    I'm still getting used to focusing the TLR, but I think I'm starting better now. These are about 6 months old.

    It's a real cheap Canon Pixma MG5220.

    I've never shot slides, but I've been interested in it lately. I think that will be the next roll of film I buy.

    Use the magnifier ... it helps ... though I would suspect you have already figured that out.

    Ektar Is a great film, And you framed your images right.

    You might want to work on your exposure a bit. But im sure you will as you get more familiar with the camera and Film combo.

    Good Stuff man.

    Ektar 100 IMO looks best shot at 50. I'd bump up the exposure a bit, it can handle it. Also, I'd look into making a couple profiles for your scanner. You know, different profiles for different films. These look really dull for ektar in my experience.
