Whoah! I’m impressed with this camera! Sorry my trusty Bronica SQa that’s gotten me this far but the ‘Blad is wonderful though a little quirkier. Shot on Kodak Tri-X and developed in HC-110 dilution E for 8min. My first time using HC-110 also! These are negative scans.
Whoa! After some of what I heard and saw I thought it was the end for Chinese photographic films. Then one day I was looking around on eBay and I found 10 rolls of 36exp 35mm Luck Film for $45 with shipping. I grabbed a package quick and just recieved it. It’s dated 2018-07! Fresh stuff!
Alas there seems to be no more of it cheap. A precursor for more to come or some sputtering from a dying emulsion? It?s difficult to know. Shanghai seems to be putting out some decently priced 4×5

I couldn’t tell you how old it was but I’m thinking at least 5 years old though possibly up to 14. I know I bought it fresh, just really no idea when. Â¯\_(ãƒ„)_/Â¯
Still it was my first pick. I wanted
I was in my darkroom a bit today. I developed 4 rolls of film, Stand in R09 1:100 with gentle inversions at 20min and 40min. While I was waiting for the wash I thought I’d snap a quick pick of a small ensemble of some of my darkroom tools:
For starters the Cen-tech (harbor freight) infrared thermometer is one of the awesomest tools I?ve gotten recently for the
What do all these cameras have in common? I own all three but haven’t shot a single frame in any of them!
First up is the Nikon FA. I’m a Canon guy so what am I doing with a Nikon. Well for starters I got my first Canon, an AE-1 from my Dad in high school. When digital started getting big I inherited his EOS 650. I like Canons and I get them. I’ve been handling them for a long time.
