Film 25

During the Lincoln 10K, I loaded the Horizon Perfekt with a roll of Fujicolour C200. Finishing the roll that day, I walked down to the local photo lab and got it developed (C41) in only 20 minutes. The pictures were then scanned with a Plustek OpticFilm 7400 at 3600dpi. Photoshop work was minimal, consisting of stitching, spot removal and curves.

Film 24: Ilford FP4 and Caffenol

After finishing the gigabitfilm (see previous post) during the 10K on Sunday, l loaded a roll of Ilford FP4 into the Konica C35v. As it was only a 12exp. Roll, I had intentions not to waste ID11, but try Caffenol for the first time.

Caffenol is a homemade developer, usually made from Coffee, washing soda and vitamin C. There are many different variations, some to individual films. For this film, I used 4 tsp of coffee, 2.5 tsp of washing soda and 1g of ascorbic acid powder before topping it up to 300ml with water.

After brewing for two minutes, I poured it in and developed for 4:11 minutes at 33°. They were then scanned using a Plustek OpticFilm 7400.

Film 23: Gigabitfilm

A roll of gigabit film I shot between 18th March and the 25th March using a Konica C35v. The Konica C35v is a zone focus 35mm viewfinder camera, though it looks similar to a rangefinder. It is fully automatic and features a 38mm f/2.8 lens. This camera, manufactured in 1974 should use mercury 1.35v cell batteries. With a modern 1.5v battery of equivalent size, the meter is ⅔ stop too high. This was easily corrected using the meter adjustment.

The gigabitfilm is extremely sharp and grain free at ISO 40. The film was developed in the supplied chemistry for 8 minutes at 26° and fixing took only 30 seconds. They were then scanned with a Plustek OpticFilm 7400 at 3600dpi. Photoshop work was minimal, consisting of spot removal and curves.
