Quick update & Tests

I'm currently scanning the film on my Canoscan 4400F. While it's not the "ultimate" scanner, I did make sure to turn off every variable I had control over, so that I could get a fair comparison of all the films. They're being scanned @ ~3000 x 2200 @ 2400DPI. It's a slow process, but I think this will provide enough resolution to really see the differences of each film. All I can say is the Kodak Ektar has really surprised me. Daifuku...if you're reading this, know that the review will be up by the end of this week (apologies to all my readers for this delay).

As for the rf-602 tests...I got a bit carried away with taking pictures over spring break that I put it aside for another week. Apologies for that also, but if I hadn't, then I wouldn't have taken the "Long Goodbye" shot over @ my Flickr Stream.

And this one's for my students...over Spring Break my wife and I attended Steve McCurry's "Unguarded Moment" photography exhibit. And the coolest part was we actually got to meet him! I even asked this legendary photographer a question, which he was kind enough to answer. The question I asked was "Which one's your favorite?" To which he replied, "They're all my favorites. Every picture has its reason." That was real cool.

If you get a chance, I highly recommend you go visit the exhibit. It runs till the end of May @ the Sejong Arts Center, the one near the Chonggye-chong (across from the U.S. embassy). If you go, invite some of your friends. I guarantee you won't be disappointed. Here's the website:  

You can buy your tickets at the entrance.
