I use an Epson 4990 which I bought as a refurb from Epson. So far its worked well, but the operator has a thing or two to learn about scanning.

Epson 4990 here as well. It works great for large and medium format film. For 35mm though, it's not as good as a dedicated film scanner.

Either Pan F+, 400NC, 400H, or Acros 100 through my 124G. All scanned with v500 expect for the last one.

What kind of film did you use? I really like the gritty look of the 3rd shot.

I don't mean to speak for Simon and I don' know specifically what he used.

Ilford HP5 can show this type of grittiness, especially if its pushed. All of the fast B&W (ISO1600/3200) films will show a very gritty grain.

If you want the speed but wish to avoid grain, Kodak's TMax 400 (TMY) and Ilford's Delta 400 are a smother grain variety of film.

yea, pretty much any film will get grainy when you push it a few stops! I shot Delta 400 pushed to 1600, (not sure if that was a good choice or not, since I don't do alot of pushing), the grain was very visible (especially since it was 35mm), but I enjoyed it, knowing that it was going to be grainy

It does look a bit like HP5 now that you mention it. I was referring more to the atmosphere of the picture rather than the film when I mentioned grittiness. For film I normally shoot Tri-X or Neopan 1600 pulled one stop. I'm kind of weird sometimes, I tend to add lots of noise to my otherwise clean 5D pictures.

It's film, so who cares?

Here's another, just scanned this one in on my new sheet of anti-newton's ring glass, works great, no more ringing when scanning in my 8x10's! Tachihara 8x10, 240mm g-claron, Tmax100, red filter:

Thanks Daniel.

The second of your shots seems to be going towards swirl bokeh, but I think the first is far more interesting.
