Unfortunately, no.

I have a roll of black and white that is begging to be used. I'm going to Disneyland in March so I'd like to get some practice rolls in before I go.

And the tap shoes are great^^

Nice shoes!

I recently shot a roll of ektar 100 which was woefully underexposed. I was worried this would happen because my lighting situation was not as great as i hoped so I opted for a CD instead of prints. I ended up with dark pictures with slightly green cast. I'm going to try and fix them. The tutorials don't seem too difficult.

Also I just loaded up some b&w. Personally I find b&w difficult to compose with so I haven't shot it much if at all. I've used it before but that was in highschool newspaper where shooting color didn't matter since it would print b&w.

A bit yellow


Not too difficult to clean up


Indoor light...whoops!




Green and underexposed


Not so green, but still very dark


Slightly yellow


Now maybe too blue?

Do you have a set of colored filters? They can help you with the white balance issues with film when you're out shooting.

Not yet. I've been reading about them as I've never used them before. Suggestions?

Also I'm learning about lighting, tungsten and film. Still working on the connection between them :/

Also do you have to know the type of light/temperature of the light to use the right filter?

I have an old Cokin filter system. It uses a filter holder and you drop the filter into that. I love it on my film cameras because I've got a few different cameras and it makes it much faster to swap filters around. I bet if you search ebay you should be able to find a set pretty cheap (just be aware a lot of whats on there are not real Cokin brand, but they work well to play with). They're not the highest end filters, but they're more than sufficient for most 35mm film shooting.

Suggestions on the best way to get film to Disneyland from Oregon?

I'm thinking via Amazon Prime and having shipped to my hotel. Problem is I can't verify expiration dates, how they have been stored or if the film gets xrayed during shipping.

I can buy local and send it through the carry-on scanner at the airport. I'm reading that the rays aren't so bad if you only go through twice in a round trip. Anyone have experience with this?

Expiration dates really aren't that critical. How the film has been stored is a lot more important. I order most of my film from B&H because it's cheaper and I know I can trust what I get.

As far as x-rays, get an x-ray bag. I've gone though without using anything and not had an major problems years ago, but now I'm of the mindset that I'd rather be safe than sorry.

Would you prefer buying from B&h and sending to the hotel instead of carry-on?

I'd personally prefer having the film with me during travel. But I shoot a lot on the way to and from WDW.

I had a lomography fisheye camera with me on a recent trip. I carried the film in my carry on and asked them to hand inspect the film, which they did, and then they sent it through the xray machine anyway .

I carried the exposed film in the carry on on the way back (and the camera, which still had a couple shots to go), and again it went through the scanner. When I developed the film, it came out just fine.

I have subsequently flown with my other film camera and film in carry on without any issues.

So I would say, pack it in the carry on and don't worry about it, it should be fine.

First roll out of the Mamiya 645E

Here are a couple shots from my first roll (Portra 160) shot with my new Mamiya 645E. They were shot using the kit lens (80 mm) then I scanned from the 6x4 print (too lazy to set up the film scanner), so the image is a bit soft looking. This roll was mostly random shots just to check and make sure the exposure metering was good (looks ok to me) and to try out my Canon flash with the camera (worked nicely!).
