An ongoing collection of film...
Pretty stoked about this. Just bought a new scanner and am rooting through piles of negatives that have accumulated through the years. Hoping to update this thread as I find cool new things...
Saw this while driving home from jackson through the southwest tip of montana with a buddy. Shot with a Mamiya 7II and 80mm f4 on Portra 400NC. Jan 2011

Nice man. I bet that would make a print SICK with the OOF foreground leading back to the sharp and contrasty center.

Texas Longhorn just outside of Bozeman Montana. This was on the last day of a trip my dad and I took riding motorcycles on dirt roads across Montana. Shot with mamiya 645, 80mm 2.8 on Neopan 400.

I love that last one with the white house floating in the ether.
You seem to have access to quite the quiver of MF cameras. What scanner are you using? I'm using an inexpensive flatbed. Results are acceptable for the price, but loading and scanning many rolls takes forever. So far the best trick I have found for dust removal is wiping the scanner's glass and the negative with an anti-static cloth.

Thanks man. I own a pentax 67 and a mamiya 645. I used to own a mamiya 7II but sold it and bought the pentax. I would love to own another 7II knowing what I know now. unreal camera.
I just scan with a cheap ass v500. I bought a refurb from epson really cheap. Compressed air for the neg and tray, microfiber cloth for the flatbed surface.

Right on. I take it that you didn't know how good you had it with the 7II? I've looked at that Pentax 67. Looks really nice for the money, but the weight and mirror slap makes me a little wary. I love my TLR for the weight, image quality and price, but the inverted finder and awkward ergonomics make it best for immobile subjects.
I should try compressed air on the neg. Good idea. Post up some more stuff!

Thanks for the remarks. Any input is appreciated. I think I want to make a print of the white house. I think it would look nice and kinda surreal.
The mamiya 7II is the least inspiring camera I have ever use. It feels like a really big, plasticky disposable camera. But the output is amazing. I bet the best results would be gained from carrying around the pentax to see cool stuff, then shooting it with the mamiya. But the pentax is a great camera, and the mirror slap to me is a bit of a non-issue. The camera obviously enjoys living on a tripod, but still yields awesome results handheld down to about 1/60ish. TLR's are weird. Sometimes I shoot the pentax without the prism. Its nice for walking around taking portraits of people without their knowledge... that is until the pentax makes a shutter release noise that sounds like a pelican hitting a glass window. Its hard to be sneaky with a loudspeaker for a camera.
This is a photo of when it used to snow up here. January 2011. Shot with Mamiya 7II, 80mm f4, portra 400NC.

I think that would do well as a print!
Thanks for your thoughts regarding those cameras. Your comments about it being uninspiring but giving great results reminds me of a lot of digital cameras. I should rent one of those Mamiya's for a day just to see what it can do. As much fun as it is, I can't really justify $1K+ on a camera that costs ~$1 per frame to shoot. I do sort of have a thing for the newer Fuji GF670 folding cameras despite never having used one. Ah well these things are fun to geek out on.
Post some more 'nam photos!

What smooth light. Interesting portrait.
You're making want to find one of those cameras and try it out. The lens has a very beautiful depth of field effect. Must go shoot film....

You would flip if you saw the mossy, dilapidated shacks that I drive through on my way to Crystal Mtn.

First it was APS film, and now it's Velvia hitting the chopping block, as Fujifilm discontinues certain formats of the film stock.
The photographic manufacturer has announced that it will end production of several variants of the film, including 100F in 35mm, 120 and 4x5 formats and Velvia 50 in 4x5 and 8x10 formats. Fujifilm has told the British Journal of Photography that Velvia 50 will continue to be produced in 35mm and 120 formats.
Discontinuing production of the stock has been put down to a decrease in demand across the world. Velvia is a film favoured by many photographers, as it gives a rich warmth to scenes, and increases the intensity of many colours across the spectrum.

Wow, some great, great shots. Love that second car one.
