Trees, Norfolk Island

Started developing and scanning my 4x5s from my recent Norfolk Island trip. Here's a couple to start with. Both Moreton Bay Figs and for some reason, my export from Lightroom has them far softer than the actual scan. They're nice and sharp on my computer. 2016-10-28-0001.jpg 2016-10-28-0002.jpg Ilfo...

Re: Notes from a small island

Oh and there's chickens roaming wild everywhere. Hundreds of them. You'd never be short of dinner.

Notes from a small island

Norfolk Island. What an amazing place! I'll have photographs to show when I get back and dev them. But an absolutely beautiful and fascinating island with quite the history. Few things I noted: Don't forget to bring spare batteries for your light meter. I was actually lucky this time as a small shop...

Re: Developing/vignetting woes (still)

Ilford have been very helpful, they're going to send a couple of test sheets for me to develop and confirm to them that the film is faulty and with a bit of luck they'll organise a replacement. In the meantime, picked up a couple of boxes of FP4+ and HP5+ at 4x5 for my visit to Norfolk Island next w...

Re: Developing/vignetting woes (still)

Have heard back from Ilford and certainly they're not dismissing my enquiry. I'm going to submit the scans of the negatives I've posted up plus one of the unexposed sheets I developed. I did another test this morning as panic set in that perhaps I was storing the film incorrectly in my freezer. I've...

Re: Developing/vignetting woes (still)

I spoke with the guy I bought the film from and he was disappointed to hear about my experiences. He's suggested I get in touch with Ilford, so have sent them an email, and I think he's possibly going to speak to CR Kennedy who he bought the film from. I'm hoping one way or another I'll get some rep...

Re: Developing/vignetting woes (still)

It's all pretty much knackered. I honestly don't think the xray machine would have caused this so I suspect the boxes of film were at fault before I bought them. I'm not really sure what to do. I've got a box and a half of film that is useless. I'm not going to accuse the seller of selling me dodgy ...

Apologies for the downtime...

I was creating a new server, doing some maintenance and securing my server up a little bit. Unfortunately something (which I've still not quite figured out) didn't work - the database for the forum and the blog are on two different servers and I was trying to get them to talk internally rather than ...

Re: Developing/vignetting woes (still)

So it occurred to me I had a second Paterson Orbital that I bought as a spare. Put an unexposed sheet of film in that one, developed it, same circular artefacts came up on the negative. I think it's fair to say I've got two boxes of film that somehow are knackered. Could it be the xray machine from ...

Re: Developing/vignetting woes (still)

So I developed two unexposed sheets to see if I could replicate the problem. The good news is the lens appears not to be at fault (thankfully!). The bad news is the same vignetting is occurring on unexposed film from the current box and a new box of film. I guess that leaves either my Paterson Orbit...
