Lovely. There's a similar Bronica in a cupboard at work with a couple of lenses. I must sneak it out and shoot some film now that Spring has arrived.

Are there any places doing 120 format colour C41 film for under £4 per roll nowadays? Went to my bag of unused film the other day but found the cupboard was bare (only Mono and E6 film in there).

^^ That's great, Chris. ^^

Italians to rekindle film production

Ferrania has confirmed plans to launch a ‘re-engineered’ version of Scotch Chrome 100 colour slide film, years after the Italian manufacturer sold or dismantled its factory equipment. The company says it also plans to produce a colour negative film based on Ferrania Solaris FG-100 Plus.

Bit more choice is always good these days.

Cheers, Boink!

This is good news. Good, because it counters Fujifilm's disappointing discontinuation of another four lines.

I don't shoot colour often and when I did, it was with Fuji transparencies. There has been a lot of hoo-har over this news. I hope the people who are making the noise actually go out and buy some of their film, otherwise its just ******* into the wind.

Hey guys, think this is the best place to ask this.

Going through some stuff in the loft and i've found about 5 undeveloped APS camera films.

They are about 5 years old.

Basically, is it worth paying to get any developed. I've found a company that charges around 6 quid to do it. I'm thinking of trying one to see how it comes out.

However, would i be wasting my time (and money) because of the age? Must admit, I am curious to see whats on there!

Or are they just bin fodder?

ta in advance!

Give one a go. Once the film's been exposed you should still get an image on the negative.

I have got two unprocessed B&W 120 rolls from a couple of years ago that I have never got around to developing. I have completely forgotten what I shot on those. Probably Holga/Diana stuff.

Once we get to the spring and the cold water is a bit warmer so I can use it straight out of the tap I will process them. Quite looking forward to seeing what is on them eventualy.

I did a big batch of developing last night, just added a bit of hot tot he cold to get it to 20 ish. Also learned that you can get two rolls on 120 on one paterson reel thus halving developer usage and time spent watching paint dry, why did no one tell me this earlier!

The Jobo tanks actually have a clip which ensures proper separation. The problem with two on a paterson is you can misload and end up with overlapping film.

Out of interest, what do people consider to be a big batch?

4, now 8 rolls, I'm out of dry reels after that and find that unless they're bone dry loading just doesn't happen. Also out of proper weighted clips after 4 but clothes pegs will sort of do I guess.

Tonight is scanning night ...fun times.
