I realize there are other threads and forums for CLA / repair recommendations but if you could, please concisely list your recommendations below.
The goal is to gather as much info as possible (in one spot) so that I can create a go-to blog on the main FPP site.
This idea was suggested by FPP listener Paul R Wagner.
Thanks and Best wishes!
I was just rec'd from a friend, a Kodak Folding Signature 3a camera. (1914) I saw on-line how to convert from 122 film to 120. I am looking though for more information on this camera, whether someone's personal experience or if there was a previous pod cast that discussed this camera. The camera is in excellent condition and I'm looking forward to using it. Any info woul...
So just bought a lovely Yashica Electro 35 GT of eBay. Very happy with it and it's condition.
As we all know these old cameras have battery issues. And I knew this before buying.
There are few options and I found one on YT by a chap called Shoot Film Like a Boss.
Anyway I've taken his great idea and adapted it slightly.
Where he used tinfoil to complete the circuit I've...

I listened to the latest FPP podcast and though I would open a topic up for Mike to see the difference between the V700 and a Plustek 8200.
Fist off I love my v700, it was my only scanner for several years, then I started to shoot a lot more 35mm and now 110. So I wanted an easier to deal with solution, I picked up a Plustek 8200i se 35mm film and slide scanner.
I found this old post from 2016 by Hamish on 35mmc to be absolutely amazing.
I already had an idea of this concept from developing and scanning since thin (almost clear) negatives don't have much data to scan and dense negatives have a lot hidden in the dark.
But Hamish really goes into it in a fascinating article...
Hi, so I have a Brownie 8 movie camera which takes 8mm film. i found that my parents have an unused reel of kodachrome II color movie film. My family also has a brownie 500 movie projector and i was wondering if anyone knew if i shot on the kodachrome film would i be able to use it on the projector or would it not work because it would need to be developed? Thanks!
I'm looking at the Legacy Pro chemicals for Black and White film. I'm getting the impression that the developer and stop bath can probably be diluted and poured down the drain safely - especially since I'm not doing large volume processing.
It seems the fixer, though, should probably go to the haz mat center. I'm hearing about some people passing the fixer through coffe...
Thought I might start a thread so we can talk about things we just purchased.
I just picked up a Nikon F70 with a stack of filters, a bag and for some reason a Shneider-Kreuznach enlarger lens. All this for $19(au)! Shame it didn't come with a lens for the Nikon though.
Also picked up an 8mm film p[projector for $12. Shame it doesn't work, and I'm hoping it's just...
Apologies for posting so much lately
At first, I thought these marks were coming from the camera but I've tried a couple now but get the same issue. My only conclusion is the AP tank I have.
Odd thing is that the markings don't appear on every frame but are there on every roll.
Any help, do you know what might be causing this? totally fi...
I got my Polaroid 280 flash yesterday. I have not been able to find a scan of the manual online. The Polaroid 180 Manual mentions the flash but refers you to the 280 Manual for operation.
I've figured out the flash operation and the seemingly hidden battery compartment but the guide numbers are a puzzle.
The guide number for AG-1 Bulbs will be influenc...
