Filmdev website

This is a site where the users link the images they uploaded to Flickr to the recipes they used to process the film.

Very useful when you want to see what can be expected from a certain combination you've never tried before.

Thanks for the link Francois.  It's an interesting concept. I can see it would be helpful as a starting point to identify different formulae and get a general sense of their features.

I'm not sure that seeing a flickr image really gives good representation though - especially given the layers of digital intervention from scanning, processing then into the hands of flickr's own post-uploading-processes. I think a written description/ experience would be much more valuable, even given the subjectivity.

And also the different optics will affect the final result a lot. And it doesn't say if the shutter speeds used are accurate, something which will affect grain size. Scanners compensate for so much error...

But in a way, this is better than nothing.  :-\
