    yeah! The f6 standard is actually smaller than a f100, although not as lite.

    Off topic but my Nikon F5 with the MF28 back will do leader imprinting too, IIRC. Not that I'm sending much of anything out for processing these days, but if I did I'd have to figure this one out. What the MF-28 back also does relatively inexpensively and well (and the F6 body does stock, w/o the back but rather spendily) is it can imprint your (c) first and last name in the margin between frames. Yet another reason to sleeve slides rather than have them mounted. To potential thieves, that's pretty fair notice that you take your work seriously (perhaps enough that you'll actively pursue copyright violations). Also, with this imprinting you stood a better chance of getting your originals returned to you from the wet-mount drumscan color separator guy after they were razored out out of the paper mounts, some weeks after the issue of the magazine was pasted up. (say what-what?)


    Back on the original topic, Kodachrome in one of my camera bodies never scratched whereas E6 often did, something to do with the automated film transport gate. I finally figured out it was due to the Kodachrome RemJet backing being thick and sacrificial, it adds bulk to the film base but gets mechanically scrubbed off in processing. Another little factoid, did you also know that the reason PKR was more robust about holding it's color and grain structure than other color films in desert heat, is that the it's essentially B&W film until dyes are introduced during the processing stage?

    If the processing weren't so hit or miss, I might still be shooting it... Also, for me, Kodachrome is dead. Long live Kodachrome!

    All Kodachrome films are B&W films until dyes are added during processing!

    This is not related to keeping stability before processing, but does aid in post process dye stability to an extent.

    sorry for the O/T, just to clarify my earlier statement

    Yup, just confirmed: it's possible to setup a f100 to download shooting data to an mv-1's flash card. This can then be loaded to a pc to be used with exifs after scanning.
    Data back is not needed: it works off the camera's memory.

    Handy little feature, it's gonna save me a lot of pain. Who knows, I might even learn to love the f100!...
