    Can't remember what I took this with, other than that it was 6x9 on 120 - so probably a box camera of some sort.

    It's a shame the feller in the pic isn't dressed in steampunk, then you would have had the set - man, machine and camera!

    True! He's demonstrating a fire pump that was actually used in the village where the rally was, back in 1905ish. That's local!

    Pleasantly surprised that this turned out ok. There's been some light leak on this film but as this was the first shot I think it was safely rolled before that happened. Not a hi-res scan, just a quickie for cataloguing purposes. Think I may do a high res one and print it. :cool:

    I recently found my Olympus XA which had a roll of Fujicolor Superia X-TRA 400 exposed around 2011 2012 ish which at the time was from an out dated press pack of twenty rolls.
    What could go wrong with me trying to home process it with a CineStill 1 quart C41 kit using the kitchen sink for temperature control. :) Loads of fog, mega latent image regression and crossed curves but a bit of fun in lock down so why not.

    FILM RELIC !! 01/1993 dated KODACOLOR VR 100 ! I found 2 cassettes of it in the huge Film Stash from my Deceased Great Friend and 'gave it a Try' in my Minolta Dynax 4 also a Gift from a Friend who bought it for £10 in a car Boot sale -- sadly HE Died as well . I rated film at 50 ASA and gave it a little extra time in C41 -- there was a huge Fog Level BUT I got scans out in Vuescan Pro and I 'adjusted' in FastStone Image Viewer.

    That last one is just crying out for a colourful young lady to stand against the wall between the wings. :)

    Good for your image, too. :cool:

    went to 'Gibberds Garden ' Essex Near Old Harlow with a few Camera Club /Flickr Mates and took my 1962 Rolleicord Vb with 75mm f3.5 XENAR loaded with one more 'trial roll' of Very Old Outdated Ilford XP-1 400 forerunner of XP-2 and XP-2 400 Super -- on processing film was totally ' Greened' so i tried scanning it in Vuescan Pro as 'Colour' and got a weird 'Blue Cast !

    You just re invented Lomo Blue scale. :)

    It should de saturate ok or you could sample from the frame edge to set the base neutral.

    If it was an important image I am sure you could improve on that a little.

    here are a couple from my 'Gift' 1930's Voigtlander 'BESSA 66' after i had taken out rear lens element and got inside and cleaned the 'Haze' BUT it does not seem so 'sharp' as when i first got the Camera -- BUT the images are sharp when I view with a ground glass microscope slide in Film Plane with shutter locked open on 'B' -- THE FILM is a RELIC too -- 1993 dated Ilford XP-2 from my Deceased Great Friend -- I dumped the rest of the roll after cutting and processing half. It was 'Thin' and getting 'Greened' as Old Chromogenic Films go.
