  1. Re: Article on digitalizing film with a digital camera, including color negatives

    This is Calgary photographer Todd Korol's to-the-point video on using a digital camera to do this. He thinks that it is not a replacement for a drum scan or even an Epson flatbed scan, but can be...
  2. Re: Article on digitalizing film with a digital camera, including color negatives

    Interesting. The main competitor appears to be Negative Supply. Its components are significantly more expensive, but it offers 4x5 and 8x10 holders.

    There are a fair number of videos on YouTube...

    Marrash also demonstrates shooting with X-ray film (green, full speed) in the first 5m 45s of this 2021 video:

  4. Re: How many film holders do you bring for a day out?

    I've never used X-ray film, but this 2020 Mat Marrash video has a demonstration and discusses pros and cons. He says that there is a very long thread about X-ray film on this forum.

    Or take up digital to the exclusion of analogue. I don't share the view that demand for film is insensitive to price and that Ilford and Kodak can charge whatever they want.

    Re: Price of Film Going Up

    I think the important point about Ilford is that it didn't give advance warning of its price increases in 2020 and 2021. Apparently they had immediate effect. There were two increases in 2020, and a...

    Have you looked at the actual prices? I don't regard an increase in the price of 10 sheets of 8x10 T-Max 400 from US$100 to $170 as "just the way it works". At the moment, at least, HP5+ is $10/sheet...

    Re: Jeff Wall's New Show in Washington, DC

    Glenstone was a private museum and didn't open to the pubic until late 2018. My sense is that its bookstore is not really run like a business. Amazon, it ain't, which is not necessarily a bad thing.
