I had film Ms but sold them sometime back. I like the romance of film, maybe a MP or MA would be nice if I get the bug again. Still have 3 Olys - OM2, XA, Stylus Epic and my Rolleiflex 2.8E and a freezer of Arista Premiums and unused chemicals

In my experience the skin tones are less red.

Thanks Adam! I also found the reds to run hot on the M240. Has this changed any?


Yes less hot.. And also the other colours are where you want them so less likely to agitate the reds.

That's the palace garage where they stored the parade floats.
Interesting, i don't remember that big ugly white molding at the bottom when i was there. Still the detail in all those scenes on the walls is amazing. I think the history is that the Thai took the jade buddah from that palace and put in the Grand Palace in Bangkok.

You're right again, Wayne. I saw the parade floats inside. To be honest, I didn't do much research about the places I visited. Just lazily walked around

Interesting story about the emerald Buddha. I guess it depends on which side do you choose to believe

Edward - how are you liking the Ektar? I tried about three rolls back in the day when it was re-launched. It seemed to be unpredictable with the color in different light. In regular daylight landscape type shots it was very good though. I need to break my addiction to Tri-X and try some of these color films. Perhaps some Cinestill....

I think Ektar is very sensitive to processing variations and scanner profiles. I'm getting different colors with each roll, but in general I like the rendering and will be my main film for shooting outdoors. Otherwise I have been getting nice results from the Portra trio and also Fuji pro 400H and 1600. I didn't like cinestill 800T so much as it gave me mixed results. Probably due to processing variations as well.

Joakim, how do you like the 75 2.4? I was considering a 75Cron but the 75 2.4 seems very nice and am thinking of getting one.

It seems to me that often transparency film has a type of beauty in its rendering rendering that we might not bring out when processing digital files. Below are two pictures that have colors that I would probably attenuate if they were produced by my M10: the color in the highlights of the hair in the first picture and blues in the water of the Hong Komg picture. My feeling is that I might want to shoot slide film occasionally to keep this type of color rendering more in my mind wen post-processing my M10 shots. Any thoughts on this?

These pictures were taken around 1982 on Kodachrome 25 with an M3 and the Summicron 50.

Back in the film days we tried to eliminate color crossovers as much as possible, tame non-conforming film/light temperature combinations with sets of Kodak Wratten correction filters, etc. Then once we've achieved seemingly near perfect color cleanliness/purity with digital, we want to go back to the 'mess' of film.

But I know what you're getting at. Digital is often stark, too clean... Not just in color but also the difference between say Tri-X scans and Leica MM output. The latter is so technically good, while the film feels warm, imperfectly comfortable.

I was just browsing some reviews of the Kodak DCS early digital SLRs and looking at sample images from those, thinking, wow, that looks so early digital. Lol. Not that I'm nostalgic for it, but wonder how we will look back at digital imaging characteristics of the 2010s in ~20 years...?
