    Awesome, that's a fine looking camera.

    You'll just have to shoot some, make sure to write down your settings so you know what you do right and wrong without having to guess too much. I know nothing on fixing things though. Looking forward to seeing your results!

    ...and now I want to try cyanotypes, but I don't think that will happen any time soon

      I think I'll shoot some more tomorrow and see if I can at least get consistent speeds. Then I can make a note of them and compensate with aperture.

      Now to look for a scanner. The Canon Canoscan 5600F and the Epson Perfection V500 look well suited for the job. The Epson has Digital Ice dust removal, but is it worth the extra time and money? I suppose I could just use a dust cloth.

        Make sure you can scan in medium format size, the canon doesn't look like it does.

          Good point, I missed that. Looks like it's the Epson, then.

          The Canon 9000F has higher resolution yet, but I'd probably just be scanning film grain at resolutions over 4800 DPI.

            I do most of my photography with a pair of Minolta XD-11's, and a ton of assorted lenses. Great camera, the first on the market with aperture and shutter priority modes (as well as manual).

              That's so cool!

              When we were kids, Dad picked up a box brownie camera. He let us play with it and it eventually ended up in our toy box. We used to pretend to be photographers all the time but never tried it with film to see if it worked. It received a considerable amount of abuse from general rough and tumble play, might have gotten broken in the process.

                Hi there! if you want to try analog photography but you want something really different too, maybe you can go and try lomography. Lomography is another type analog photography but the cameras you will be using are known as "toy cameras". They are called toy cameras because most of lomography cameras are DIY (such as the pin hole) or made of plastic. The lens is also fixed and is made of plastic too! The plastic material of the lens creates vignettes, scratches and blurs thus creating that grunge effect! Every lomo cam has a personality of its own! You can try holga, diana or the lomo LCA and mix and match with various films! It produces very interesting colors and every frame is never the same!

                  Hello The Lumberjack, the problem is that you won't have the good material that was once sold, I think you will have hard time finding good films at a good price, I would have encouraged you to do so 5 years ago but with today's technology, I don't know but keep us posted on results

                    There are plenty of lace-oriented Illustrator brushes to be found online, but if you're really looking to get into creating your own original patterns, I'm afraid you won't find much in the way of lace...
