I initially tried it on B+W first, and when that didn't work tried color... the plugin won't detect any...

Thanks for the suggestion, Johan. What do you use to make the door/cover the front and back? I'll probably go this route or get something similar.

I also found this garment bag...

Unfortunately I don't have a darkroom. I wish I did though... I didn't start developing film myself until recently... growing up it all went to Costco or the local photo store and came back as 4x6s!...

Great points, Glenn. A film drying cabinet. That may be what I need. I guess a gun storage cabinet or clothing storage cabinet works, but any ideas for a more travel friendly alternative, or how to...

Unhappy Dust Removal Alternative?

Currently I'm scanning with a Nikon Coolscan V (LS-50) and Vuescan, touching up dusts and scratches using Photoshop's clone stamp tool. However, though this method is very effective, it's painfully...

You should get an on-camera light meter like the VC meter II! That way you can differentiate the metering between two cameras. I've used both the VC meter and a handheld meter, and I actually prefer...

Two Film Ms - B+W and Color

Anyone out there shoot with two film Ms, perhaps one for each film (B+W and color, or different speeds) or maybe one for each lens/focal length?

I recently saved up and got myself a MP and I love...

Older models will always be discontinued, digital or film, as repair parts run out.

They're still producing film Ms: the MP and MA, and I believe they will continue to do so. My guess is because...

That is correct, inflation might be a bigger factor than most people think. Between 1991 and 2019 there was an average inflation rate of 2.28% per year. That $1000 M6 is $1,880.64 in today's...

More and more younger individuals, usually ages 20-30, are trying out film. Sometimes due to nostalgia, other times to try something new. Modern technology has made cameras so advanced it doesn't...

I’ve owned the CV 50/2.5 before and it’s an interesting lens. I found it quite soft wide open. Though the build quality is superb (chrome), small and has a tab. Perhaps it was just my copy or the...

Thanks for the suggestions! I'm leaning towards the Summarit at this moment due to the mentioned ergonomics, but as presspass brought up the older collapsible Summicron seems to be a worthy contender...

Compact 50: Summarit vs Elmar-M

Between the Summarit 50/2.4 and the Elmar-M 50/2.8 Collapsible, which one would you choose as your travel friendly 50? To complement the Nokton 50/1.5 VM, which is pretty long in length and not that...

No, the film wasn't exposed to any extremities. I keep my film in binders for storage/transport so if the bubbling occurred from heat exposure the other rolls should've been ruined too. It could be a...

The film looks fine? The blistering/bubbles don't appear even through a loupe (probably too small), but is very noticeable after scanning.

Apologies for the dusty film:...

Unfortunately it isn't dust. Looking at the scans again, it seems like the film is blistering. I forgot to add that the film used is Portra 400 negative film.

Small bubbles on film

I've been re-scanning some of my images and one roll in particular had terrible small bubbles on the film, in addition to micro-scratches everywhere. I've not seen this kind of bubble before; if it...

The dent is in on the mount itself, not the helicoid that moves in and out. Thankfully it didn't damage any of the bayonet mount "teeth" that lock the lens onto the camera, so while technically it's...
