Techpan, Olympus 35RC and scanning
Yesterday, I decided to shoot a roll in my daughter's Olympus 35RC -- a sweet little rangefinder camera that I covet. She's away in Austria with her orchestra from Huron High. Perfect opportunity to use the camera, especially since I replaced the dead battery.
Techpan is a slow film, -- iso 25 for pictorial use, and I developed the film in Technidol LC -- recommended for pictorial use with a wide tonal scale. I am very impressed with the camera, the film, and it scans really easily. I scanned some negs at 2800 ppi, and still could not see any grain. It prints really nicely, too.
