    I have no experience with Neopan, is it a T-grain film like T-max?

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    No, its not, Acros 100 is, but the Neo 400 grain is quite fine and very even in size. My recent few rolls of TMY-2 had ridiculous fine grain, I thought my 25x grain focusser was broke. See my Neo 400 vs TMY-2 comments on the HC-110 thread.

    No Keith, these are B&W scans. In fact what I am after with the "pasta" shot is to re-create your pasta shot. I thought he tone and contrast was really nice on that shot. I have been less than excited with my results so far.
    The "white on white" challenge is tougher than it looks for me...

    But that one you uploaded in the galleries is an RGB image....

    Anyway, your tones look good, I was just interested in the shoulder effects, since they aren't apparent in these scans.

    What part of the pasta is giving you trouble? That was illuminated with two tungsten lights with softboxes, IIRC. I think I may have removed one softbox for added contrast and used the other for fill. But it was all in the lighting really, the film & dev were nothing special. You may note that I was working with fairly shallow DOF, that was essential to keeping the 'flow' of the lines between the two shells. But that's about it.

    Can it be that the reason for the lighter rendering of the violin body, is that TMax 400 is more sensetive to red than Neopan?
    (lots of red in a violin's brown/red-brown).

    From the whitepaper, the Tmax is sensitive from 450nm to 700nm, while neopan's sensitivity goes from around 380nm to 650nm.

    Whitepaper Tmax 400: http://www.kodak.com/global/en/profe...4016/f4016.pdf
    Whitepaper Neopan 400: http://www.digitaltruth.com/products.../Neopan400.pdf

    Can this explain the darker tone (the lighter, silvery tones on photo number 2 certainly looks the same).

    Helinophoto, I had wondered about this myself and this sounds like a good explanation.

    I used my RB67 and had two backs. A 120 back loaded with Neopan 400 and a 645 back loaded with TMAX 400. I don't have 2, 120 backs... I used the same body, lens, tripod, lighting, f/stop and speed for each. Only change the back for each shot.

    umm.... yes you do have two 120 backs, just one of them is formatted in 645 and the other is what, 6x7 maybe.
