Anything shot with an EOS-3 35mm
« on: March 04, 2014, 10:30:27 PM »
I felt a bit nostalgic and picked up an EOS-3 35mm film camera and was pleasantly surprised i could still find 35mm film being sold at CVS.  Ive been shooting with a 5diii and 7d for so long i forgot what film images really look like.  Im still on my first roll of film but wondering if anyone else still uses a 3 for photography.  I used to shoot a lot of black and white in the day and barely recall the excellent dynamic range that film can capture.  I am somewhat excited over this...maybe as much as when i first switched to digital in the 90s.

Post some of your digitized images here.

I still have an EOS-3 that I bought brand new in 2002, & it has a roll of Provia 100F that has been in the camera now for 2 years, mainly because I only use it on sunny days.  I only use my 24-105 or my 17-40 lenses right now with it  - sometimes my 50mm 1.8 as well. I also have an Epson 4990 scanner that I bought about 7 years ago & it still works fine.  If you scan your slides or negs, you'll need something to clean up the images because there is still some noise even in ISO 100 film compared to what I get in my 50D or my 30D.  The EOS-3 is a Beast in my opinion & focuses Very fast!  Enjoy it!

Yeah the scanning process can introduce noise.  I wonder if stacking multiple scans can reduce the scanning noise?  Im thinking the process would be similar to that used for astrophotography.  Well i have some things to try.  :)

I took it out this weekend and used it with my 600mm f/4L.  I did notice that it focused very fast. I was surprised at the speed for an early 2000 model.  Cant wait to finish up this first roll so i can see how it performed.
