Re: How to get that Film Like apperance we all like...

I'm sorry to say that my recent experience with film wasn't as successful.

I have a lovely old Bronica 6x6 SLR which when I was able to do my own processing produced some marvellous 10" x 8" prints. I recently decided it was time to run a roll of film through it.

I searched everywhere to find soneone who would process and scan it to a reasonable resolution, only to find that most companies only scanned 6x6 (2¼ square) to low resolution. I eventually found a company that would scan to 2400 d.p.i. but even they could not supply anything other than Jpegs.

The results were prety awful, even the processing appeared to go wrong with inconsistent colour (see shot 2), and when looked at at 100% the grain aliasing was awful.

I preferred the same shot taken with the DP1:

With your shots, I prefer the results from the slides to those from the negative film. They just seem to have better contrast and colour.
