Somebody on here made a video smashing a T4 I sold them that had issues. That was a dumb video.

You mailed that T4 to me in an unpadded envelope.

First roll i put through the t4 reset at the 12th exposure and the film wouldnt advance or rewind lol. Cut it out and seems fine with a new roll but i can’t imagine it was a good sign

 

also does anyone remember a photo somebody posted on here of somebody in a tanning bed but like in somebody’s room? It was sick

Weird, maybe something with the winder.

 

Continuing the T4 stories, just tried to buy one from some guy locally (but paid to ship it  cuz they live 2 hours away and I have no car) and I think I got scammed. No replies or anything. Paid with bank eTransfer so no buyer protection. Have their phone number and email, but searching both bring up nothing. Not sure if I have any recourse. 

Guess I've learned my lesson. Paypal or nothing. I didn't pay "full price" so at least I didn't loose an extra $100+ bucks.

I have never sent a camera in an envelope, much less an unpadded one. I know for a fact that is 100% false. Next time, try saying something at the time you got the camera instead of passive aggressively whining about it behind my back. Still a dumb video.

Kodak is bringing back T-Max p3200.

only 35mm so far, they said if it does well on the market they might do 120.

neat. 

Also, anyone have experience with buying expired film? Someone wants to sell me 18 rolls of Portra 160NC in 220 but said it hasn't been cold stored/expired in '07. $100. Worth it or nah?

Ask if they have any sample shots that were made recently. At that price it doesn't seem to bad, especially since it's 220. I'm sure if you don't like the results, you could make your money back selling it to someone else.

This is the best thing to happen in 2018. My input so far:

Best underwater camera is Nikon Action Touch. Been through a few over the years and they rule.

Best mail-in photo service is sharp photo. They do hi-res scans uploaded for something like $14/roll.

Do you know what resolution their scans are?

idk that sounds kind of steep for 10 years past expiration date and not in the cold. 18 rolls of 120 is like $97. BH doesn't have 220 so I can't compare that price.

They're 15-20mb jpegs, which is not ideal I suppose, but it looks good on a screen and I've printed them decently large (20x30 with the same lab) and they come out well. I've found it's a happy medium between basic scans and shelling (money or time) out for hi-res for everything I shoot.

One of my favorite films, but I wouldn't touch non-cold stored stuff for that price. Offer $50 and leave it if they don't take it.

Anyone know any cool photographer feature websites or instagrams? Similar to https://www.booooooom.com/blog/photo/ 

Man, there's so many IG accounts out there that do features. Usually their name ends with "mag" or "magazine". They all have various aesthetics, so find one that fits your style.

A few off the top of my head:

back2thebase, fotofilmy, somewheremagazine, noicemag

I'm a big fan of The Heavy Collective. Best viewed on web, as they do an interesting Q&A with a photographer, as well as a photo feature. 

 

Itsnicethat has a good photo section. Also FotoRoom.

Everything boils down to insta nowadays. Sometimes I question why bother using a dedicated camera instead of a phone if everyone only views photos on phones.

Thought I'd drop in to share some news with sp. I'm graduating from college, and for my year long thesis made a photo book! Check it out and you pick up a copy HERE

The project comments on effects caused by smartphones and social media.
