Looking good, did you develop/scan yourself or send them off, if so where to? I have a few 120rolls going thru their paces currently

Great shots Graham, did you get them printed on proper photographic paper as well or just scan the negs?

Autocord Minoltas rival to the Rollei if me dear old dad told me correctly.....and he used to use Rolleis preferred them to Blads (sorry Jonathan I know your blad is your baby)

I'm getting all nostalgic now, for 'real' (film) photographs!

    Gary.   I sent the film to Ilford to dev/scan. Only took 3 working days there and back, and they'er returned with a postage paid envelope for the next film.
 
    Jonathan.  HP5?  Oh yes. I remember having a go with Tri X but could'nt get on with it. That was when I did my own.

    Irv.  If I can bring a smile to someones face, then my work here is done!

   Oldboy.  Sunshine in over rated in my book.  :)

  Thanks for the comments folks.

  Alan. Thank you. :)
  Nick. For 120 film it was £15.00 for dev & scan (3000/3000px). For 35mm it's £9.95.

All wonderful shots whatever the camera - but somehow they suit the era of that camera too. Well chosen. The two pigeons made me laugh right away.

Sweet.  Never really liked Tri-X personally (though I don't remember ever actually using it - most likely prejudice due to seeing too many art school "street" shots....).

Apparently the cool kids are now using Acros.  Well, I just bought some and have a finished roll waiting to be devved. :)  I'll let you know.

Thinking of moving to doing my own scanning too.  If only I can control the dust.

And I reckon my next camera is definitely a TLR.  I can only look on in awe at the idea of shooting anything moving with my GX680....
Hmm, maybe we should have a film forum...?

Thanks for that Graham, I'll have a look. I've also just bought some Acros. I'll give it a try over the week-end if I get a chance.
