    My first few rolls of film!

    Well I got my first film camera (Fuji G617) a little under 3 weeks ago and since, I have shot and had developed 3 rolls of film.

    I headed to Stanthorpe with my son and wife a few days after I got the camera so I tested it out there. I also did a Brisbane City sunrise. Here are 5 of the shots. To my surprise I only really stuffed up 2 exposures. One of them I knew I had stuffed up as I didn't know how to use my cable release properly and the other one I just under-exposed as it was fairly early in the morning.


    Fuji G617, Velvia 50, 105mm, f/22 1/4sec, Epson V700


    Fuji G617, Velvia 50, 105mm, f/22, 6 minutes, Epson V700


    Fuji G617, Velvia 50, 105mm, f/22, 30 sec, Epson V700


    Fuji G617, Velvia 50, 105mm, f/22, 5 minutes, Epson V700


    Fuji G617, Velvia 50, f/22, 1 sec, Epson V700

    C&C most Welcome!

    For those of you interested I put up a blog post about my first few outings here.

    Thanks,

    Martin

    It is said that we remember the important things, if true, why photograph? I forget, so I photograph.

    Welcome to APUG
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Can't really go wrong with Velvia. That film is sex embodied in emulsion form.

    You mentioned in your blog you looked forward to see how much detail is in the scans: well Velvia 50 @ 160lp/mm is extremely capable. Lets say you only pull 80lp/mm out of that though (which is probably a reach) and are targeting around 4kdpi as a resolution to use for scanning:

    2 * 80lp/mm * 25.4mm/inch = 4064dpi

    4064^2 * (60 * 170)/25.4^2 / 1024^2 = 250Mpx

    So if you had a 4kdpi scanner, scanning at 16 bits a channel, you'd be looking at around 250 million pixels, for a total file size of 1500MB each.

    Velvia regularly bests even the best scanners out there. In order to extract all this information you'd have to use a drum scanner. But keep this in your mind for the next time someone asks how it rates next to digital. :-)

    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.
