I must be going crazy, I just picked up a pack of Ilford HP5+ 35mm 400ISO BW film the other week. It has been quite some years since I have shot BW film but something Mike said to me about shooting BW film again has been bugging me. Just silly nostalgia I guess. Well, for starters my EOS 3 refused to work, so I had to go back to my good old Nikon F601 body with the ordinary Tamron 28-200mm zoom lens on it. Loaded one roll of film and hit the streets. Tried to find something interesting to shoot but did not have much luck. Once the roll was exposed, I had to send it to a lab for development and wait for 5 days to get it back. Popped into my Canon FS4000US film scanner and did a quick scan @2000dpi. The scans were, as expected, not very lively and full of grain. I did some quick adjustments in LR to see if they could be made acceptable. Well, at least for web sizes this seemed to be possible. I am not gushing with enthusiasm right now, have I been had by the false feelings of nostalgia, again? I will shoot the other 2 rolls first before coming to a conclusion. Here are some pictures from this batch.
