Default My film kit

The cameras are a Nikon F2(1973), and an FM, the lens' very from 24mm to 200mm prime, and an 85-200 zoom(not used much pretty soft). SP-12 flash, assorted filters, Gossun Luna Pro light meter(these old things are still spot on), and a travel tripod(not shown). I have adapters so I can use the better of these lens' on my Canon EOS cameras.

At present all my film is developed by The Darkroom (google it) economical, excellent service, and fast turnaround. I scan my negs using a Wolverine scanner Which does excellent @ approx 20Meg pix. I send out the negs because i do not do 'darkroom' anymore and prefer to print using a Canon Pixma 100 which yields extremely good BW prints. So thats my story.

I like! Ive got an old Sears SLR here Im thinking about getting a battery for so I can get the needle meter working agn.

A few quick questions, if you dont mind please...

Could you post a pic or two that had been scanned?

Do they still make 35 film? (I honestly dont know)

Thank you for the recommendation on the service, if I can get everything
operating Id like to do a little film.

Thank you for your time,
Andrew

My film kit when I am shooting a lot of scenics such as landscapes, cityscapes, skylines, sunsets, sunrises, moonscapes, seascapes, lakescapes, and beachscapes:

a. Fuji 6x9cm medium format rangefinder with 65mm f/5.6 lens

b. Small tripod

c. Hand held light meter

d. Enough 120 medium format roll film to shoot at least two-dozen photos per day because that is the average I normally shoot

e. Lead-lined storage containers to protect my film from the X-rays used by airports and cruise ships for security purposes.

Here is one I posted in the BW forum awhile back. Done with the F2 IlfordHP5 and 200mm. Scanned with Wolverine F2D titan scanner.
Browns in Black & White

As for film it is readily available now almost anywhere and more coming on line. Even Polaroid land film is being mfr'd again. I like Iford, but there are several more out there that some pros swear by. avg around $5-6 per 24exp roll.

Look in the BW forum there are a couple three Camels that develop and print there own, and are far more knowledgeable of films than I am.

My long-time ready kit. Except for the body and one lens, all including film, lens cleaning kit, and cable release fit into a 6x7x8 inch Tamroc bag that weighted little over four pounds.

20MB tiff ? jpeg ? other ? Size alone tells us
little without knowing the file type. I spoze
it's also useful to inquire of the pixel mass.

Oops. Mebbe 20meg IS the pixels ? Not sure
which way to read it .....
