    It's been a long time...

    Hi everybody,

    I'm from Germany and new to this forum as I just turned back to film photography.

    I gained some experience in my darkroom in the years 1998-2003. After moving to a new house I quit this "anachronistical" workflow and switched to digital photography.

    But now I'm back on the analog track. It started by thinking about an efficient way to digitalize my old B&W negatives. I found an easy and low cost solution as follows:
    I own an Fuji X-E2 and (among others) a Nikon 50mm F2 Ai-S with an adapter. After purchasing an extension ring an a metal lenshood, I attached a plastic yoghurt pot, which was conneted to the lens hood (fits in perfectly without glueing. A cardboard mask was attached to the open side of the pot. The mask is notched with a 4x3cm hole so that I can put on framed (slide frames) negatives. As a light source I use the overcasted sky, which turned out pretty nicely. (see attached image)

    The next (logical) step was to shoot my first roll of film since over 10 years (after borrowing the OM2 of my father in law).

    I could find my old developing tank and the first try (Efke 100, which has been rested in the camera for 10 years) turned out pretty well. I used new D76 and 12 year old fixer (which still worked).

    The first complete roll I shot was a Kentmere 100. It was developed in D76 1:1 and has been digitalized as discribed above.

    The following images are all from this roll.

    Thanks!

    I just bought a Revue Auto S22 rangefinder camera (equivalent to Konica Auto SII). The light meter ist not working, but I just paid € 20,- including shipping.
    The first roll of film is loaded. I'm looking forward to the results.

    Welcome to APUG. I spent some time in Germany back in the 70s and loved it.

    could you post a photo of your yogurt setup? I'd be interested in rigging up something similar myself.
