    All great links to interesting stories. Bill Smith’s post was timely for me because yesterday I received the scans from four rolls of Kentmere 400. The results were a bit flat and soft, but I don’t know if that’s the fault of the film or the lab.

      Flat is easy to fix in post – soft, not so much.
