Paul, glad you found a pakon. They are friggin' great for 35mm! Your scans look great.

Kevin, great thing about pakon and c-41 is that the colors are almost always spot on as the scanner has the baked in Kodak color profiles for the emulsions. So unless the film is expired or was developed incorrectly, colors will be what they should instead of something else with color castes/wonky colors which takes a good bit of work in post. The two biggest benefits of a Kodak Pakon is the speed and correct colors. A definite plus if you shoot a lot of 35mm and a lot of c-41. It was on this thread when I was venting frustrations with flatbed scanning about 3-4 years ago when it was suggested to buy a Pakon. I did and have never looked back. In fact, I sold my medium format gear as I am having so much fun with 35mm.

Thoughts on tmax developer? Got a bottle of it here. Been mainly using hc-110, rodinal has been getting more use and good old d-76, which I really like. thought about going back to xtol once my supplies get depleted but wanted your opinions on tmax developer for both 100 and 400 speed films in 35mm.

I have read that XTOL is better for TMAX 400 for less grain. I had some 400 that I did w/Rodoninal that had more grain than expected. I have the chemistry but haven't mixed it up yet.

A few old trucks

These 1st two were shot on TMAX 400 with the Mamiya 7.
These were taken back in October & just got them developed.
Seems the contrast had diminished (image latency/time) so I processed them in P/S with Silver Efex













These next two were shot on Cinestill 800T, w/warming filter, also with the Mamiya

Been using rodinal for some wl2210 (basically tmy2 on ESTAR) and for tmy2. Grainier but not obscene.

Looking For Love in All the Wrong Places...

I revisited this folder of images I made for a Johnny Lee record cover about thirty years ago, and with new tools and techniques, I like it. Can't believe I actually shot TMY, as I never liked it. Actually I pretty much hated that film, but it scans pretty well. I remember we had problems with the portable strobes and ended up using a direct light instead of umbrellas or soft boxes, and that almost makes it look cut out, but it's not. The location is Vasquez Rocks Regional Park about an hour north of Los Angeles, where way too many original Star Trek episodes, tons of commercials and countless movie scenes were shot. Everything from Blazing Saddles to Big Bang Theory have shot there. I've even done product shots there as well, many many moons ago.

Hi Peter, curious about your personal distaste of tmy and what characteristic you don't like. I believe you do like tmx, at least my memory says you have stated you liked it (my memory has been incorrect before). Just curious, food for thought stuff. Thanks!

I have had grain issues with TMY & contrast. But might have been my processing

I experience the same, especially with rodinal (go figure) but don't necessarily hate it (grain that is, more of a salt and pepper look). I do prefer delta 400 over tmy but that may be because I have shot more of it. I also tend to prefer the grain of traditional cubic 400 speed film vs tabular grain 400 speed film.

Now tmx in rodinal is a completely different story. Love it.

Jon - I think it that I never quite liked the contrast and tonality, especially compared to Tri-X although it was finer grained than Tri-X. Of course I didn't have access to drum scanners and Photoshop thirty years ago so I'm sure that colored my opinion as well. That scanner has been a big equalizer for a lot of different films. I guess I should have posted a copy of the proof sheet for this image and you would really see what I mean. I understand that the later TMY films were improved but I never tested them. I'm still surprised to see that I used this film back then (1989) on a job. If I knew then what I know now we'd of had a much better record cover.

I have just upgraded my Rolleiflex SL66 to the SL66E model with the meter and HFT lens and could not be happier.

The cv 35/2.5 is a great lens. I've tried not to like it and bought a 35/3.5 ltm summaron which I thought would replace it. I recently sold the summaron (will probably buy it again). It's a modern lens and renders that way. No real character to it and I have been using a lot of old lenses which have definite character. The lens is contrasty, sharp wide open, flare resistant even shooting into the sun and tiny. It really is a winner and is staying anchored on my M5. Really for the money, you can't go wrong and could do a lot worse spending a lot more money. Just a great lens. Not super fast but f2.5 is fast enough for 95% of the time. I shoot it indoors as well and with a rangefinder, I can shoot at 1/15s without blur so don't need faster on iso 400 film.

Small and contrasty.... Could be worth a try!

random stuff from a "lost" roll. Nikon L35AF, hp5+, hc110 dil b, yellow filter, pakon scan

A few from my now no more 140+ mile commute to work. All shot out the window as I flew by.
