    Good half frame news!

    I am an odd person who likes to shoot odd size film (110 to 4x5). I do my own B&W developing but getting decent color prints from the lab lately is hard to do for the odd sizes. I just tried out a new lab and the results were quite good. Turn around time was only a week and an half including shipping across the country. Prints were decent and on Fuji Crystal Archive paper. A real bonus was they did high resolution scans (2340 x 1649) of the half frame negatives for only $5.99 extra for the whole roll of 75 negatives. The example image is from the CD with no enhancement. It was however cropped (not rotated) from a landscape to a portrait format. Film was the new Ektar. So break out that half frame camera for the fall and give it a workout.

    I really need to find myself a half frame camera! That is great! It would interesting to get 72 pictures per roll!

    I love how we have all these new films and can put them in any old camera, taking their performance above and beyond what it was even when they were new. Shooting film has never been better!
    f/22 and be there.

    Were the prints cut so you got 72 back or did you have to cut them?

    I got 75 individual 4x6 prints from this "36 exposure" roll of film. You often get a few extra shots depending on how the roll was loaded. The negatives themselves were cut to 6 inch long strips and sleeved in plastic so they would fit in the processing envelope. The Camera I used was a Yashica Samurai.

    4x5 is an odd size? I thought I was normal...

    So far I have used Ektar 100 in full frame 35mm format and in 6X7. The Ektar is so good I might dig out my two half-frame cameras. One is a Konica Auto Reflex and the other is a Konica AA35.

    that's over $22 for a roll of prints.... without the 7.50 for scanning. Yikes.
