    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 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.
