New scanner, first time Xtol, pushing Tri-X

Finally bit the bullet & bought a new scanner. Settled for an Epson V600, because I want to scan 120 & 135 but can’t justify the $$$ for a dedicated 120 scanner.

These are all with the f/1.1 & are the first shots I’ve got with it on full frame (rather than the crop of the NEX). Also my first time using Xtol developer & pushing Tri-X (to 1600).

Considering I was drunk for some of these (the dev too) & the 1.1 is hard enough to focus when sober & in daylight, I was pleasantly surprised by a few of them.

I’m plenty happy with the (lack of) sharpness from both lens & scanner too, perfectly usable.

Some of these were taken in Boston whilst I was there for a conference at the beginning of the month, the rest are around St Andrews.
