Regular Double-X in 16mm that I pulled one stop and developed in POTA, to minimize grain. Flatbed scanning is surely the wrong way to go about this. A Plustek or even camera scanning would be better but all I got is my V850. I'll be darkroom printing one of the frames on Sunday and I think that'll be a lot nicer, but we shall see.

?

do you mean like 16mm movie film? i thought it looked like 110 format from the cartridge

Yeah, that's right. It's called the Minolta-16 for a reason. They sold empty carts designed for reloading yourself, the manual even tells you what length of film to use for 20 exposures (50 cm).
It's funny cause it's also cheaper than shooting 110, which is like $20 a cart here in Aus

You can get it done for cheap but you have to have a pretty big initial investment into the whole process. I shoot black and white for $4 a roll and process it for 6c. In medium format I spend $8 a roll and the same cost for processing. This is on the back of having bulk loaders, all my own dev and scanning gear and the knowledge to know how to do it.

However, there are lots of cool camera clubs around and lots of people who are willing to share their particular bad brain with you. I spent last weekend with some fellow photographers just lending out cameras so people could try shooting their first roll of medium format. Was a great time and I'm sure I only ruined some marriages.

Yeah, 110 is a niche now, only 1 company makes the film still.

kinda trying something different with a shoot lately. trying to get further back and also I kinda feel like Iíve nailed the look of the kind of portrait I was going for when I started shooting people, and donít really wanna just keep doing more of the same.

Iíll be the first to admit I am not the best when it comes to colour management. itís like iím too close the trees to see the forest when I am editing. cos I was happy this but now it feels off, too yellow maybe? it was sunset so was already naturally orangey already. anyway, already posted it now lol

took some photo




something my camera does that bugs me is jump out of auto iso :qq: I am still trying to find out what exactly it is I do that bumps it out. I lost a handful of photos today because it stuck on iso 200 and was having to shoot at 1/30 and I was too busy shooting to notice :qq:
