張數不足

PHOTO MISSSING

:明明買了36張的菲林,為何少了幾張,甚至得一半。

THE PROBLEM: 36 frames shot but received fewer frames or even only half of frames left.

答:這情況通常發生在即棄相機或比教簡單結構的相機,因為這類相機都是非常小光圈,一般室內/晚上拍攝,一定會曝光不足。輕則,照片灰暗,嚴重的話,會黑畫面,即掃描器會略過,造成少了張數的問題。

WHY: This situation usually occurs with disposable cameras or simple-structured cameras. It is because those cameras have smaller apertures, causing negative was exposed to dark/faded, or even grainy. Since your negatives will be very faint/see-through, film scanner will skip underexposed frames. As a result the number of frames will be reduced.

解決:室內/晚上/陰天/甚至陰暗位都一定一定要開相機的閃光燈功能。

HOW TO FIX: Please turn on the flash when shooting indoor / at night / at gloomy days / under shadow area.

 

相機有毛/塵

OBSTRUCTION IN CAMERA

:照片中有毛/塵在同一個位,很多時連續幾張照片都會有。

THE PROBLEM: Hair-like obtrusion appears in photos.

答:這種情況通常出現因爲菲林拍攝倉邊出面毛髮。因為菲林掃描器出現的塵,一般會出現一條橫線橫跨整個影像。

WHY: Hair or dust substance in film chamber blocking the image being taken. Dust in film scanner should appear to be a long solid line instead of hair-like appear in photos.

解決:打開菲林倉,清理曝光位置就可。

HOW TO FIX: Clean the back of the camera with a blower or canned air.

 

曝光不足

UNDEREXPOSED FILM

:照片很灰暗,而且多Noise,有時整卷都灰灰。

THE PROBLEM: Photos appear to be grey-ish, noisy, unsaturated, faded.

答:這個情況有幾種可能性。曝光不足,因為曝光不足下,暗了的部份,掃描器會自動把照片調整光暗,所以強制把原先暗的部份推光,就會變得灰暗。

WHY: There might be a few reason behind the issue. Underexposed photo. The film scanner will attempt to recover the dark areas in the frame. Result in unsaturated colour and noisy photos.

解決:因為每台菲林相機,測光有機會欠曝或過曝,如果可以較ISO的話,可以自行加EV拍: 例如用ISO400菲林,請把相機設定到ISO200。用ISO200菲林則設定到ISO100, 或EV + 1, 會改善欠曝。

HOW TO FIX: It’s normal to have slight offsets or errors to a camera meter. Since it’s better to be overexposed than underexposed in shooting film, you can utilize EV function in camera if available and set it to +1. That way the camera will overexpose your photo 1 step so that the details can be preserved. You can achieve the same result by lowering the ISO set in the camera, for example 200 ISO to 100 ISO.

 

過期菲林

EXPIRED FILM

:整卷顏色偏色。

THE PROBLEM: Color-shift in photos.

答:如果整卷偏色: 有機會用了過期菲林,或菲林曾經過熱保存。

WHY: Might have used expired film, or film was stored in a heated environment.

 

菲林走光

EXPOSED FILM

:照片中出現紅色直條光斑。

THE PROBLEM: Red light streak/fog in photos.

答:大多數是因為相機背部海綿老化,其次原因是不小心打開了機背。

WHY: Film exposed by environmental lights. Possibly caused by worn camera light seals or opened the film back while film is loaded.

解決:需要更換機背海綿。

HOW TO FIX: Replace light seals.

 

快門問題

CAMERA SHUTTER PROBLEM

:照片中出現一半黑影,水平或垂直。

THE PROBLEM: Thick, uniformed, black bar appears on photos (horizontally/vertically)

答:大多數是因為相機快門有不同步情況,俗稱”立油”,通常有塵痴到快門或出現在很久沒用的相機。

WHY: Sync problem with the camera shutter. Usually due to jammed shutter or unused camera.

解決:是比較輕的問題,要給師父檢查及維修。

HOW TO FIX: Common problem, requires minor camera servicing

 

掃描線

SCAN LINE

:照片中出面一條打橫的線。

THE PROBLEM: Horizontal solid lines appear in the photo.

答:如線是有顏色通常是白色/粉色/彩色的,通常有機會是掃描器的掃頭有塵。

WHY: If the line is white-ish, pick-ish, there is dust or dirt interfering with the film scanning equipment.

解決:可以要求我們重掃就可以解決。

HOW TO FIX: You can request a rescan if it’s scanning problem.

 

底片刮花

FILM SCRATCHES

:照片中出面一條打橫的線。

THE PROBLEM: Horizontal solid lines appear in the photo.

答:如線是非常實色,有機會是相機機倉有硬點把底片括花

WHY: It can be differentiated from pressure plate scratches by the visible digital noise around the line.

解決:要檢查底片及相機。

HOW TO FIX: It’ll require camera servicing if the pressure plate scratches.

 

畫面重疊

FRAMES OVERLAPPED

:照片出現重疊情況 或 只有半格相。

THE PROBLEM: Photos overlapping or photos missing in half.

答:有機會不小心按到回片制或重曝制令畫面重疊,如半格通常發生在重疊相後,因為畫面不是原整一張,所以只有半格相。

WHY: Images may be overlapped due to double exposure or there’s a chance that the rewind button is pressed by mistake. When half-frame appears after the double exposure shot, it is because the image is not full-frame which results in half-frame.

 

X-RAY 

:照片出波浪印,或垂直摺痕。

THE PROBLEM: Photos occur wavy prints or horizontal folding marks.

答:波浪印是因為X光做成,通常是機場X光安檢機造成。

WHY: Wavy marks are caused by X-ray, normally caused by the airport security check.
Solution: Use a X-ray proof bag or request for manual inspection.

解決:使用防X光袋 或 要求 手檢。

HOW TO FIX: Use a X-ray proof bag or request for manual inspection.

 

答:垂直摺痕是因為用家手動回片時,以錯方向回片造成。

WHY: Horizontal folding marks are caused by manual rewind film in wrong direction.

解決:只要下次記得正確回卷方向。

HOW TO FIX: Please remember to rewind the film in the correct direction next time.

 

120 發霉

MOLDY 120 FILM

:120菲林出現奇怪紋或數字。

THE PROBLEM: Strange marks or number appear on 120 film.

答:這個通常出現在過期或保存得不好而受潮的120菲林,奇怪紋是底紙印,數字是底紙上的數字。

WHY: This situation normally appears on expired film or film under bad storage condition (film became damp). The marks and number on the film backing paper will then appear on the film.
