    Here's one from the vault, taken of course with the Fabulous EOS-1V:

    Oh yeah, and since this is apparently now a FILM group I'd be remiss
    in not mentioning the Fuji NPS 160 FILM that I used for that shot. I
    don't recall much about the various film formulations, but I think NPS
    was supposed to be a good portrait film.

    I'd like to make a project to scan at least one old negative or slide
    per day.
    That's about as large a workflow that the old Minolta SE5400 can
    handle.
    Man, is it slow, especially with the inappropriately named Silverfast
    software.

    I encourage anyone else to post their own old film shots as well.
    And if anybody is still stuck in the dark ages and still using film,
    then post some of your current stuff.



    Final note for David Nebenzahl: "Bite me!"

    I can't help but note that this isn't cross-posted to at least two other
    groups??

    Comparatively speaking digital is in the dark ages, just image what the next
    50 years will bring. Maybe they'll even get it to look like that film
    stuff... :) OMG - I just realized how old I will be in 50 years. :-(

    Just think what truly developed Foveon might look like if they got it out of
    Sigma's hands.

    will bomb the cities of Vietnam, defoliate the jungles, herd the
    population into concentration camps and turn the country into a
    wasteland.' But Lyndon Johnson said: 'No! No! No! Don't you dare do
    that. Let ME do it.'"

    presidential race by Professor Irwin Corey, "The World's Foremost
    Authority".

    I don't have a vault. I got a dirty great big bank of WD 7000 RPM hard
    drives in Raid 3 layout with 3 terabytes of storage in it.

    Amongst all those pictures I found this one. I almost got a hard on
    thinking about Bret when I looked at it.

    How fitting if goes here in this thread:
    http://www.d-mac.info/example1/film.htm ROTFL.

    Totally off topic post too!

    I used a 6x9 CM Fuji camera I bought for $650 at a cameraholics sale and
    later sold for $1200 after taking this and many other memorable (plus a
    few saleable) photos with it.

    Ahhh Yes. The heady days of film and the uncertainty of it all. Did I or
    did I not compensate for the highlights? Oh well we'll know in a week or
    two! Scanned on some crappy POS I can't even remember brand but it was a
    flat bed I can guarantee that much.

    Too bad you didn't use some photoslop to get rid of
    the flat lighting...
    If exposed properly and scanned on equipment of
    minimal quality. Like anything else, there are
    such things as use and mis-use...
    That 'splains a lot. Had you stayed current and used
    equipment from this millenium, you'd have noticed
    a marked improvement.
    Quite often. You just have to look.

    Don't think that will help with the scan quality,
    but knock yourself out!

  10. We were somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the
    I use both; digital isn't everything, you know. I really do like
    digital, but film still has a quality that is hard to achieve with
    digital for some shots, which is why I keep a few film cams.

    Of course, the fact that some very desireable film cams are now worth a
    fraction of what they were has nothing to do with it.

    Yeah, that one was taken with the old 550EX flash on camera so whatcha
    gonna do? Somebody told me that if I used an umbrella I'd get better
    results, but that didn't work. Maybe Misty wasn't holding it right.

    I don't doubt that. The only time your little willy gets aroused is
    when you think about me. In the future, try to keep me out of your
    masturbatory fantasies. I feel so dirty! Oh well, if it keeps you
    away from the little girls I'm happy to do my part.

    I remember that pic as well. It remains to this day one of the few
    pics you've posted that I have commented favorably on. I'm sure that's
    why you cherish it, my domination of your thoughts being so thorough.
    I believe I said it was a "cool pic" or something to that effect.
    Since then, of course, you have often tried to imply that you faked me
    out with the fake lightning. As if.
