    I have shot several rolls of 5222 and really like it.. A friend rolls his own so I get the benefit of getting free 5222 :) I also bought some from Cinestill BWxx..

    "A friend rolls his own so I get the benefit of getting free 5222 ...."

    I used to roll my own cigarettes, but stopped smoking 4 years ago, glory be! And I used to roll my own 35mm canisters too, but usually in the dark and not with a bulk loader. I found that the span of my stretched arms was just about perfectly what a 36 exposure roll would be, maybe a few frames more, plus leader. So I stretched it out, cut it, taped and rolled it onto the spool, capped the can, and went on to the next one. It was quite an efficient little operation at the time. I wish I could find 100 ft. rolls of Acros 100. I misplaced my unused bulk loader years ago.

    I love the moodiness of your images, Edward.

    This is one of my favorite films. I've started rolling my own after buying a few rolls from Film Photography Project to test it out a while ago. I currently have a 400 foot roll, 50 feet in my bulk loader and 8 rolled into reusable cassettes. In fact, I just realized that I still have a developed roll that I need to scan, so I should have a few more examples in a couple days.

    What are you exposing at? I have been shooting mine @ 250 + an Orange filter… Are you doing any post after you scan, Chris? thx

    I have been exposing at ISO 200, and recently scanning on a Plustek 7600i (There are a couple here that were scanned on my V500 before I got the Plustek.) All but the first couple shots were developed in D76 at home.

    For the most part, these are "straight scans" in that I didn't do anything wild to them. Using Silverfast with the Plustek 7600i, my workflow now involves scanning the negative as a positive, inverting in PS and moving the levels until the image looks right. I burned in some detail on some of these, and got rid of dust. The only other post processing trickery is a mild unsharp mask.

    I hope this helps.

    Hmm… Do you see a big difference in scanning as a positive vs a negative? I haven't tried that… I will have to give it a go and see what i get.. Have you done this with color film?

    thx

    I don't think you get any better quality scanning as a positive. I just haven't had any luck getting good B&W scans using Silverfast. The negatives always turn out with more contrast than I want and blown highlights. Even though it adds extra steps to the workflow, I get the best scans from that software on B&W scanning as a positive with the highlight and shadow sliders all the way out to the edges, and taking care of the levels myself. I still prefer this to the lower resolution scans that I was getting with the V500.

    Silverfast handles color negatives just fine scanned normally.

    I may try Vuescan soon, rather than keep this complicated workflow. I'd rather be able to get reasonable results straight from the scanner.


    Examples:
    Scanned using Siverfast, Negative, using the Plus-X setting for some Arista Premium 100 (Plus-X). This was the best I could do.

    Same shot scanned as a positive and inverted in Photoshop. Levels adjusted and burned in the detail that was blown out in the first scan.
