Nikon FA, NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8 Ai-S, 1/250s, f11 – Ilford Hp5 Plus
Developed in Ilford DDX at 1:4, 9 mins at 20°c.

The Grade II* listed St Mary’s Bridge in Derby has featured here before… and given my fondness for a pint (or two) at the Furnace Inn just a few yards away, it will no doubt do so again!

Digitised using Nikon D5600 & AF-S Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8 and Nikon ES-2 Film Digitising Adapter with minimal cropping and tweaking in Lightroom Classic CC.

Nikon F90X Pro, Sigma 28~200mm f/3.8-5.6 DL Macro – Ilford Delta 400 rated at ISO 320

The more I play with the Negative Lab Pro plugin for Lightroom the more impressed I am with it… the results from DSLR digitisation are far better than those from either my flatbed or film scanners.

Digitised using Nikon D5600 & AF-S Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8, pixl-latr and Negative Lab Pro plugin with minimal cropping and tweaking in Lightroom Classic CC.

Mamiya C330, Mamiya-Sekor 80mm f/2.8 – 1/250s, f9.5, – O.O.D. Fuji Provia RDP II 100

Another image from Expired Film Day 2022.

Results from the second roll of Fuji Provia RDP II 100 (that expired in 1998) aren’t as good as from the first but they’re still much better than I was expecting!

Mamiya C330, Mamiya-Sekor 80mm f/2.8 – 1/250s, f11, – O.O.D. Fuji Provia RDP II 100

An image from Expired Film Day 2022.

A few months ago a pal (Hi Simon!) gave me a quantity of Fuji Provia RDP II 100 and Velvia RVP 50 slide film that had all expired in 1997 or 1998. A bit of research suggested exposing it at box speed and cross my fingers for reasonable results.

The original slides have a colour cast and are a little underexposed but nothing a little tweak in Lightroom couldn’t sort out!
