    Looks good. I'll have to run a roll through my film camera.

    Thanks, RT. I've been using generic CVS film for several years now (don't know who the original manufacturer is). Have been generally happy with it as well. Those Contax lenses are razor sharp and have beautiful contrast!

    Reds and Greens look good in Fuji film- always has.

    For a treat- try Kodak Portra 400- excellent film, pushes easily.

    Addendum:
    What amazes me in the digital world is the large amount of post-processing of digital images that goes on to achieve that "film like" look. This includes (but is not limited to) cross-processing to emulate film cross-processing, adding digital noise to emulate film grain, washing out of colors,....

    So with all the above happening in the digital world, I find it quite peculiar that you would say "film is dead" :smile:

    That kind of processing represents the Madame Tussaud's approach to photography. :)

    Actually the last photo in the river got great contrast and the details and the shadow are great.

    A smudged yet sharp look for me
    But that's relative depending on the lab and scanner.
    That and not over-saturating the annoying sharp colours, but this is also relative to the film used. :p

    Yes...
    Personally, (IMHO) there is no "good film or bad film" - but rather each is different.

    I rarely shoot B&W film so I won't speak on the myriad of development techniques....

    ...in other good news. Tetenal is now back and in good supply for your home C-41 and E-6 home developing needs, Jobo is emerging from their issues and are returning stateside fully dedicated to film(lol, digital "solutions" bankrupted them). Rollei and AGFA chemistries will also be returning (meh, imo, but some people adore them), and instant films also look to be making a comeback(polaroids film unit got bought by The Impossible Project, also there's the NEW55 film which I can not wait to hit looks amazing for instant film). Should be a good decade at least for us film fans... get yourself a good camera now before prices get even higher than they are for a good LF or MF camera.
