    Benefits of film photography?

    Why should one have to ask the advantages of film over digital? Aren't the results enough obvious proof?

    How was the exposure? Did you develop for the standard time?

    Film in paper developer?

    Haha, yeah, Neal, I was hoping for a response from her. I figured the bit about the grain, but I wasn't sure of the dilution or times.

    Film in paper developer?

    I've got some Agfa Neutol paper developer sitting around and I'm out of film developer, however, I've got a bunch of film that needs developing. Rather than wait to have chemicals come to me, why not use what I have? The question is this: can I use said Neutol as a film developer? Has anyone...

    What kind of 120 film should I get? (slide, B&W, and negative)

    It's all up to your personal tastes. Shoot 35mm film already? Take your favorites and just buy 'em in 120. Personally, I like Provia and most Ektachromes in slide, Portra or Agfa Vista in Neg, and for Black and White, I'll mostly pick up FP4+ or PAN F (HP5+ if I need the speed). I'll also...

    Pentax ME battery dilemma

    This happened to a friend of mine as well. I had an old ME that I hardly used so I traded him. The batteries I used to have in it worked, as did batteries that I still use in other cameras (I switched them out). However, I gave it to him with dead batteries. He went to a camera store and bought...

    Trade? My Vivitar 285 for your film...

    But I can still use it functionally and in a reasonably pictures-will-be-decent-looking manner right? If so, I'm down. How much film do you want? I've got a ton.

    Dillon's Beach

    That's what I figured, but the sky lets up too much. I really like how the sky looks atm. I suppose I could cut the image out in PS, but I'd feel weird about that.

    Dillon's Beach

    I don't really like landscape photography, personally, but I was there so I figured I'd try my hand at it anyway. This was an alright shot, I guess, but I'm not sure, what do you all think of it? I didn't get the foreground lit up enough I don't think. All help would be appreciated. Info...

    Scanning Cross-Processed Transparencies

    This is what I've been doing and it's been working fine. I think it was the orange mask thing that was throwing me off.

    Scanning Cross-Processed Transparencies

    How do you all do it? What's your technique? I am scanning some x-pro'd Velvia 100 and it's coming out all weird.

    Pyro Developer

    Yeah, I just noticed after printing, I liked the prints. And no! I love the Holga! (Plus the Pyro wasn't mine and these were rolls to experiment with)

    Bergger 200

    I've always just used Xtol. Worked nice. It was a fine film.

    Cross-process portrait

    Generally, it is more expensive. For me, they charge 10 bucks extra, but that depends on the lab you go to. If you take it to Longs or something and ask them to process it, they shouldn't charge extra.
