what is your favourite “new” color negative film? any suggestions?
for me:

#1 Silbersalz (wonderful colours, but don’t develop at Silbersalz, they’re crazy, just C41 at your local lab)

#2 Cinestill 400D, 800T. nice filmlook also avaliable at 120.

#3 NC500 - new emulsion, rarely works, but had some very nice results with a lot of light outside, low light horrible, colours just wrong.

@kava Silbersalz and Cinestill are the exact same film stock, Kodak Vision3. Cinestill looks different because they remove the remjet layer and because of C41 processing (Silbersalz should go through ECN-2).

@kava You can get Kodak Vision3 directly from 35mmdealer.de and send it to any other lab that does ECN-2, there's a list on the same website. Silbersalz lab has one advantage though, their scanner is crazy good.

The plushies... They finished production. They look magnificent. Now they just need to reach the warehouses.

Hopefully a slightly less common angle on a famous landmark. San Francisco.

@kevinrpb Compositionally this one is nicer than mine. But I was on a boat so I couldn't have gone where you went even if I wanted to.

@ipofanes Dust, dirt, or a scratch on the negative.

Hey friends,

There's a film photographers' competition deadline coming up with a $1,000 cash prize for the first place (and other prizes, inc. exhibition).

It's called Analog Sparks. Entry fees range from $10 to $25, which is quite reasonable in my opinion.

Details: https://www.analog.cafe/comments/lgvg

@analog_cafe Hm 🤔

I took a new (to me) lens to San Francisco, the Canon FD 50mm/1.4, which I haven't had a chance to test before going (which I in hindsight realized was not very wise). I shot 4 rolls of film on the trip. Eagerly awaiting the scans to come back from the lab...

@analog_cafe On this one, the aperture blades seemed to get stuck after the shutter press instead of returning to full open, until I wound to next frame. So of course I'm worried that it might have affected the exposure.

Back home after a very busy week in San Francisco. I spoke with @caseynewton, @mmasnick, @harrymccracken, @laurengoode, @chrismessina, @Markoff and so many others. In an age where the old web is gradually getting killed off by AI, there is still hope for the future in the shape of the fediverse.

When I worked on the Metaverse, I talked with developers about whether generative AI would make creating games cheaper and they disagreed.

They also quoted the example of CGI in Hollywood movies. It simply raised the bar on expectations versus enabling cheaper special effects.

@carnage4life People will start expecting a lot more fingers per hand.

AI voiced audiobooks have been a boon to indie creators by giving them access to the audiobook market without having to paying for studio time for human narrators.

It means there’s now even more content for readers that needs filtering and narrators are losing gigs. This is what looks like. Two steps forward and one step back.

@Gargron@mastodon.social avatar

@carnage4life I'm not sure there are any steps forward here.

Quick! I’ve got a free hour or so to work on my current novella. Enjoy Nansen’s blep and stop distracting me.

As above. Nansen the cutest ginger and white cat.
Oh Nansen! Little ginger cat dude looking straight into the camera. Massive blep.
