1200DPI scans on a CanoScan 9000f. I scanned in color and decided to leave them that way.
The scanned images in the video and the ones posted here are unedited except for resizing. The negative scans had levels adjusted before reversing to positive. It’s kind of a cool effect doing it that way — I just have to reverse my thinking to imagine what it will look like.
Socorro Peak from the Socorro Holiday Inn Express.
I haven’t scanned the Socorro Peak negative yet. I put it between two pieces of paper to protect it not realizing it still had wet developer goo on it. I washed off some of the emulsion with the glued-on paper.
Negative from my test shot. It’s grainier but the boosted contrast really adds something.
The tire swing. Not bad for a pinhole but kind of “meh”.
Tire swing negative. The grain and contrast give it a melancholy feel.
Curly grass in the back yard.
Curly grass negative.
Some people have gotten sharp images using pinhole cameras. I’m not there yet. I’m going to try more experiments and not wait until the week before next year’s Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day to cobble something together.
This is the Konica film I split between the Minolta SR-T 200 and this Fujica. They did a study that showed new parents took more pictures than any other amateur photographers. I get it, target the people buying film, but did they really change the film or just the marketing?
Slightly expired Fuji Superia 400 film. It’s been cloudy so the extra speed was nice. I bought it before it expired and froze it so it’s in good shape. Processing and scanning by The Camera Shop of Santa Fe.
The rest were shot using expired (1999) 200 ISO Konica “Baby Film”. It was supposed to capture the delicate tones and textures of a baby’s skin. I should have gotten images of a baby just for the irony — most of the frames had horrendous color shifts. I got it in a box of film and disposable cameras from a guy cleaning out his garage. Not ideal storage conditions. I’m hoping the APS film (the reason I bought the lot) fared better.
I forgot to include a couple of things in the video. The Rover has 3 focus settings, 4-6 feet, 6-12 feet, and 12 feet to infinity. It also has a bulb setting. Bulb is a bit of a challenge since it has no cable release and no tripod socket.
I only got six shots on the first roll before the film jammed. A couple of examples are in the video.
