    Thanks guys 'n' gals...

    Hi there friends,

    Thank you all kindly for the welcomes. I'm also pleased to see some other Melburnites here!



    I've just bought a Canoscan 9000F (oops... apologies for using offensive language, I promise it'll only be this once LOL) but haven't yet fired it up to scan my colour negs.

    This far, I've really been enjoying the "restrictions" of only having 36 shots immediately available to me when I'm out and about. I find I'm not just snapping away for the sake of it, like using the other medium. I'm spending a lot more time composing my shots with care, and more subject discernment (I hope!) and thinking about the value of the end result from the story-telling aspect, particularly as others will see them.

    One of my favourite scenarios is old, weathered, crumbling buildings out in paddocks. I always like the sense of history that exudes from these buildings, and which are often being reclaimed by nature or the elements. I also like the sharp contrast between the man-made angularity of structures against the random shapes and form of nature's elements.

    Anyway, enough rambling!

    —G.

    36?!

    I find I simply can't fire 36 exposures. I struggle to fill 10 sometimes on a 120 roll.

    A welcome from Perth, though Geelong is the dig.
    I canvouch for Canon scanners: I used one continuously from 2001 to February this year!
    Athiril, Many photographers load 36 xp rolls but only use 20; my cut off is 25 exposures now. But I'm chewing entire 120 rolls in the 6x17 at a great rate! :-)

    I get 12 exposures from an 120 roll. The wonders of 6cm x 6 cm [technically 56mm x 56mm]!
