RE: T400CN was filmscanners: Grain, Noise, et al



I played with my exposures to see how the film would react to slight
under-exposure in an attempt to heighten the contrast a bit but only went
under by 1/2 stop. The film's latitude must be very wide as I couldn't
really detect any difference from 'properly' exposed shots.

RE: the pink cast on prints, it was my belief as well that the lab simply
got lazy or didn't pay attention when they printed the negs. It was a Kodak
lab (I used Kodak processing mailers) and I intend to call and bitch at them
for making what must have been a mistake simply out of negligence. No doubt
they just ran everything through a machine and, since it's c41 processing,
just let the machine print on whatever is their stock color paper. So much
for trying to save a few pennies on processing...
