The pixl-latr

In my photographic process, scanning film has always been the most the most tedious process and always the bottleneck.

Recently, Hamish Gill of 35mmc.com announced the "pixl-latr," an affordable and easy to use solution to scan film, will soon be heading to Kickstarter.

From what I've seen, it looks like an interesting solution to a problem that many of us have.

Head over to http://pixl-latr.com to to get signed up for the mailing list and stay up to date with the product and the upcoming Kickstarter campaign!

T-Max P3200 is Confirmed By Kodak to Be Returning

Posted by Mike Padua in 35mm, Film, news

IT'S BACK!

In a Tweet early this morning, Kodak confirmed the return of T-MAX P3200, a high-ISO black and white negative film.

The tweet didn't offer any other details about schedule, pricing and availability, but a press release with more details can be found at EMULSIVE.ORG.

I'm personally happy to hear this news as this is a film stock I've never shot myself, having grown up with and stuck with color negative most of my photographic life.

Good on Kodak for seeing the market trend and bringing back a well-loved emulsion, I can't wait to shoot it!

Kodak is Teasing the Possible Return of a Film Emulsion

Posted by Mike Padua in news

Kodak has spent the last week teasing the possible return of a film emulsion--and the common guess amongst pretty much everybody is T-Max 3200. In fact, it seems that it has already been revealed ahead of time in certain markets in some preemptive Instagram stories such as this one from @ikigai.camera:

Here are the clues they have posted thus far before the big reveal on Friday, Feb 23rd. The last clue in particular features a set of ISO ratings all adding up to (drum roll) 3200!

Naturally the community is buzzing and excited about what Kodak has to unveil! With discontinuations due to lack of demand from other manufacturers, the news of emulsions coming back onto the shelves is welcome. Of course, we won't know for sure until Kodak makes their official announcement!
