    Ok, thanks. I was squaring 2, then dividing by that.

    I was just about to point him there. Great forums with lots of advice for pinhole and related stuff.

    I'd look into Superia 100 or Reala 100. They are cheaper than professional films and have saturated color. Freestyle carries both of them. $3 per roll for Superia 100, and $3.50 per roll of Reala 100.

    I have tried twice to join the f295 forum, 6 months ago, and then last week. Both times they have not responded, have not responded to emails, have not responded to emails sent by other members on my behalf, and both times deleted the login I was using. It's a bit maddening.

    Is there some secret to getting through?

    I just bought my first sheet of foam core. Mostly because I gave away my cheapo table saw and don't have workshop space for my router.

    I HIGHLY agree with this if you are using 120 film. I buy Superia 100 from freestyle and use it for my pinhole work all the time. Nice colors with long exposure and i find it to be very forgiving.

    You can't beat the price either.

    Is it okay to mention ... good ol' Velvia.
    Yes it is a transparency film, but I never did care much for C-41 process film. C-41 will be more forgiving I suppose. It will be interesting to read your thoughts on the use of both materials.

    Superia X Tra 400 example

    This is from my first roll. This is just for example. Untweaked in any way, as you can see. Don't know how that scratch got there.

    This stuff is very grainy, more noticeable on some of the other photos.

    Hi,

    I have done a ton of shooting with Superia 400 and 800, and only think of them as "grainy" when my exposure was very bad. I get rather nice 8x12s from Superia 800, even if it is overexposed by about a stop.

    Underexposure leads to the mushy-looking, washed out grain, and overexposure leads to the sharp, gnarly grain.
