    35mm RF
    Thrift-finds this past few months...
    Found a couple of boxes of 10-yr old fujicolor press-800 40 rolls for $4....and a hp 4850 flatbed-35mm film scanner ($5).....

    I didn't expect the film to be very good for anything but uncommon WB....so I went out at night and shot a few to see if the film and scanner would work...and got this with the Nikon 50mm 1.4 AIS...on a Rebel...I know, why not my FE...well I just wanted to see what the combination would do....

    I did this scan at 600ppi to a TIFF file and this night shot came out pretty good...daylight shots not so good...
