Over a week ago I had CVS process this film. The girl behind the counter said
there was nothing on the roll and handed me an envelope with rolled-up clear
film. This was using the Exakta 500 and using CZJ Tessar and Biotar lenses and
I thought maybe I'd done something with the shutter release lock. Anyhoo, today
I bring in some color film to do and this time it was an older lady who informed me
that I have a roll that's been here awhile. I told her the story and she didn't charge
me for the processing, for some reason they couldn't scan to CD.:confused:

here's a few from the roll using my Epson 4490:

I'm going to be trying that bog shot again using one of the Koni Omegas and
a tripod. Most of the bog shots were dumpers, trying to shoot at 1/5 second handheld wasn't a good idea.

Bill, everyone one of these shots are fantastic! I absolutely love the second shot! That is one hell of a combo. Nice stuff dude.

Thanks for the kind words, Samuel! I got another Exakta 500 recently off the 'bay, love
this little camera!

Also, forgot to mention, I used a very short extension tube with the lens on the cat & flower pics.

That's a GOOD cat shot! He/she's scowling, that is so cool to catch that and with perfect focus to boot! Boy, I haven't seen a bog in many years, that's a cool place for B&W. Nice that you got your film back!

On edit...looking at this again...Did you turn Chris into a cat????

Tim and Ray, thanks!

Yeah, that bog is quite intriguing. It sits across the Tennessee river from Decatur in
"Hospitality Park" and I plan on doing both BW and Provia 100F the next time I'm there.
Just received the shutter release cable for my Koni's.

They probably couldn't scan it because xp2 has a clear base, instead of the orange that C41 film usually has. Their scanner is probably preset for the orange. (Their scan probably came out turquoise and too bright.)

Cool pix!

Thanks, Chris. They told me the scanner would do one file, then quit, they gave
up. They didn't have a problem scanning the Kodak BW400CN, tho. Probably
stick with that since Wallies sells it pretty cheap.

Well prep me for surgery, they are different! The Kodak is orange and Ilford is gray, or grey.
Thanks, Chris, dumkin Bill is all better now. I don't suppose they would want to change the
settings on their scanner, no.
