35mm Film Update

An update on my last writing.
The Olympus OM 2000 is made ready to start, new SR44 batteries.
An old camera removed from the mothballs, a Nikon F60 with 35-70mm, dusted and also provided with batteries.
A Nikon F60 isn’t the best camera for this purpose, but it uses film, can be set manually, and most importantly, it works.
Another windfall is the delivery of my OM/Pen adapter, it arrived today, finally ! so this camera is ready for action also.
In the meantime I also received the new films, so as far as color film is concerned, I am ready to go.
For the black & white, I found out that the new lab I discovered cannot help me, they only do color C41.
On the internet I also found out that the recommended filter for the Rollei IR film by the store (they said a regular red filter) is not good enough, but a real IR filter 720nm is needed – Christopher Schmidtke -film stock review : rollei infrared 400.
So for both IR films i need to investigate a little more, and probably find myself an IR filter somewhere.
With a bit of luck both Fujifilms Color Superia from earlier arrive by the end of this week, so i can start scanning film,
and start with developing a film simulation for it.
For the new films I need more freedom and our partly lockdown lifted so I can go out,
and don’t have to shoot doorknobs and bored dogs anymore.

Oh yes, the email address is still there, but I'm not a Pentaxian anymore - now i'am proud to be a Fujiian !
