I’m seriously bummed that Fuji stopped making this film. I can shoot color and then convert in Photoshop but it’s just not the same. Scanned at 1200DPI on the CanoScan 9000f. A little dust cleanup on a couple but no exposure edits.
You never know what will show up when you have to by a “lot” of cameras to get what you’re looking for. I get to give something back too, since there’s bugger-all on the web and I got the manual.
Merry Christmas everyone!
I’ve had an Apple Quicktake 200 for a while but I never had media. It takes 5V Smartmedia. I scored another camera and this one had two memory cards with it. The camera isn’t working but it had some test shots on the cards.
I took the next two. My first camera does work. Behold the 1997 glory of 24-bit 640 X 480!
People are asking, and getting, $50-75 USD for a 2MB card. 4MB cards fetch around $100. Old Boss and Roland synthesizers need them so demand is still high.
I have a USB reader that can theoretically work with 5V Smartmedia. I haven’t found working drivers yet. I used a Fujifilm Floppy disk adapter FD-A1S to transfer these. I’ll do a proper write up when the camera is featured on 52 Cameras.
I used a pretty expired (8/1999) 12-exposure roll of Fujicolor Super HGII color print film. Processing and scanning by The Camera Shop of Santa Fe.
There was a partially exposed roll in the Canon EOS 750 when I bought it in late 2014. I used the remainder of the roll as a test and, not expecting much, I had it processed at the drug store. Surprisingly, my shots came out pretty nice. There were also a few exposures from the previous owner.
Since the camera does pre-wind, these are probably in reverse-chronological order.
If you know these people or are these people, get a hold of me through the comments at my Youtube channel so I can send them a CD (kind of low-res since it’s drug store processing) and negatives.
I had to turn off comments on the blog after I was invaded by spam-bots.
Weird expired-effects aside, I love this film. I’ll get some more fresh and shoot it fresh and see how it goes. Every time I’ve purchased Impossible film, it’s been better than the last so they’re still hard at work improving the formulas.
Scanned on the Canoscan 9000f at 2400DPI. Resized to 10% except for the detail images which are 1024 X 768 crops of the full-sized scans.
Cool accident. It looks like someone in a v-neck and a blazer.
Amoebas are eating my prints!
I know it’s supposed to be black and white but the rust color is gorgeous.
I found an interesting article about doing emulsion lifts from Impossible film. It’ll be interesting to see where the spots are in the print layers.
Update 16 July 2016
I sold this camera but here’s what it looks like.
A cool camera in great shape but I have a few almost like it so off it went to a new home.
