    I don't think I showed the results of a trip to Barnard's Farm Gardens. near West Horndon , Essex ( England) on this site but here is one which I am entering for 'The Colour BLUE' Projected Image Comp at Brentwood & District Photographic Club in 2 week's time. I made it much 'darker' than natural using 'Levels' in FastStone Image Viewer on the trannie scan , saved as a 'TIFF'
    I used my repaired 1956 ROLLEIFLEX 2.8E Xenotar + 2003 dated Fuji Velvia 50 rated 32 ASA. There are lots of Statues and sculptures in those gardens. I took B&W on 1959 3.5 F Planar

    I had a Kodak 'Black and White + 400' Chromogenic C41 film loaded in my 1954 Zeiss CONTINA Type 1216/24 for some months -- now I have a new supply of C41 Developer from the mini-lab close-down I CUT if and processed a short length. It was successful -- as it was outdated 12/2003 i rated it at 125 ASA but could have used 200ASA ( kept in Fridge for years ! ) I scanned as 'Colour' and de-saturated in FastStone Image Viewer to Monochrome.

    Given some outdated C41 fillum of unknown storage at Club last week I gave my 1934 LEICA II + 1936 50mm f2 Summar lens an outing. Rated film at 125 ASA , it was 'Lloyds Pharmacy 200' dated 02/2004,actually Ferrania made in Italy. I processed in my mini-lab Fuji Hunt 'Econoneg C41' developer and got good negs. Scanned with Canon 9000F Mk II I started to get a 'Magenta' strip on some and I got 'scan lines' appearing again as I did with my Epson scanners -- what IS IT ?

    Given a 10/2005 dated 'ACTIVA 400 ( Konica)' film at Club last week I used it in my 1934 LEICA II again with the 1936 500mm f2 Summar lens. Downrated it a bit to 240 ASA the negs were 'Soft' in Contrast and saturation probably due to the old lens but scanned well ---

    A 500mm f2 Summar lens? If one existed, I'd hate to have to carry it.

    Seriously, about 40 years ago I borrowed a 1930s Leica with a 50mm (probably F 3.5) that a friend of mine had inherited. She had no idea if it worked, until I gave her some 10 x 8 inch monochrome prints after working out how to load it with some Iford FP4. I don't know what she did with the camera, but warned her it might be worth a bit.

    First COLOUR Tests with my 1935-36 Kodak RETINA 118 with 50mm f3.5 Schneider Xenar un-coated lens. I used a 2004 dated 'Polaroid 200 ( made by AGFA) given to me by a Camera Club member and processed in C41 .

    For an uncoated lens, that looks pretty good, Pete!

    The magenta stripes look like what you get when the scanner glass isn't perfectly clean. I had the same issue a long time back when I was doing more scanning. Look for dust/grime/whatever right at the top of the glass, where the scanning starts from. Give it a good clean and you should be right as rain again.
