i think downtown camera has some decent expired stuff on occasion... i'm going to head down there this weekend for window shopping anyway.

Question

new question: i am looking forward to using infrared with my new fm10. (my f55 uses infrared beams either to read the dx coding of the film or to help with the af system, or maybe both, depending on things i've read, so i can't use infrared with that.)

does anyone know if kodax hie infrared is available in 120 or 220 sizes? also, do you think the holga can every be taped up enough to prevent fogging of the infrared? or is it unrealistic to think you can get passable results with this type of film on this camera?

the only infared film I'm aware of that available in the 120 format is konica, got a whole brick laying around the house that I never got around to shooting.

You could try it in the Holga, but I doubt it would be a good idea. probably way too much fogging would occur. You would also have to load it in complete darkness, or at least a changing bag. You get light leaks no matter how well you tape up your holga, so you would probably get the same problem with infared.

For fun effects, why not try cross processing trannies in C-41 chemisry.

I've never used or held the F55, but isn't there a manuel setting for film. On my F90x, I can set the film speed instead relying on the dx sensor. And for focus you can always use manual focus. But manual focus lenses usually have a infared focus line on the barrels to help out with focussing.

Ilford was always the leader in B&W paper over Kodak and I believe they are still manufacturing RC and fibre based products.

B&W was diminishing in popularity in the 70s with the advent of colour technology and poloroid. I'm suprised Kodak continued to make it for so long as most professionals I know were using Ilford paper (the rule was Kodak for film, Ilford for paper). On the other hand Kodak makes fantastic colour paper. I have used in in many applications and it remains consistant.

The consumer/ prosumer digital market will kill off point and shoot, consumer film stocks and photolabs faster than specialized products like B&W film and paper. They aren't the ones buying specialized products. It's much more relegated to students, enthusiasts and fine artists. Until recently, most B&W professional work was shot B&W and printed on colour paper (a much more flexible process). Perhaps the students/ enthusiasts/ artists are buying less?

All this being said, I do believe that eventually film will be replaced by digital. I believe that it will take a long time but ultimately, the convenience and advances in technology make it hard to resist (spoken by a true fan of film).

I saw this announcement recently and thought it would be fitting for this thread.
