Time to bite the bullet...

Time to bite the bullet...

… and find out for myself how hard it is to create the perfect EBS-mirror-image. Duplicating the same framing wasn't too hard, but something went wrong with the film realignment (causing the redscales to shift to the right). Better luck next time! Oh yes, there will be a next time! Developed in Rollei Digibase C41: http://www.lomography.com/magazine/tipster/2013/05/20/tutorial-rollei-c41-digibase-color-film-development

    @mrmaart Yep, square pics with the Ricoh, because I cut of the overlapping parts. Reloading the camera the film-lead was upside down (because of the redscaling), so the film didn't catch on. I had to shorten the film a bit cutting a new lead, and that caused a misalignment of frames. Don't ask me why, but the Ricoh doesn't start shooting the exact same distance from the spool, as I had hoped. Looks like the camera measures how much film it has and places the frames in the middle of that. Anyway, the misalignment gave me this: http://www.lomograph(…)os/19493467 It made more sense to leave of the black spacing and parts of the previous/next frame. Made the pics square, sort of. Does that make sense?

    A great first effort, Sandra - I'm sure your next one will be perfect! Yes, alignment is always the trickiest part with this technique, though there are a couple of things you can do to minimise the shift: firstly, use a manual-wind camera, as you never know with motorwinds how far the film advances. Secondly, you can tape a length of old negative (about 15cm) to the take-up spool and then tape the leader of the new roll to that, with appropriate pen markings for alignment; then for the reload, just flip the film, align it with your markings and retape it. This way, you don't need to cut a new leader, plus you get an extra shot or two on the roll - bonus!

    @buckshot Thanks for the moral support Neil! :-). And thanks for the very useful tips on correctly loading/reloading the film. Hind side it wasn't the best camera choice, but if all went according to plan the first time around... That would be pretty boring right?!
