Hi there,
I am just scanning my first film (and very happy about it) and I am trying to identify it. In the film is printed 400n h64. I have googled it but I could not find somethink more. I am trying to find out if this is fuji, kodak or the private label of my local drug store.

Hm..btw what resolution do you think I should post here (currently my scanned negatives are tiff and I need to turn to jpegs) to allow discussion on my scans. The point is that you would be able to see the technical problems I have and suggest me what to improve

jpg it and upload it in any res you want . Whatever size the image is it will show at default size on screen but full size when clicked on.

Hi thanks
1. I could not still find any information about my film model... anyway
2. all my film roll is found here

please have a look to see if you see anything weird.
These are scans with no post processing from the scanner

General comments:
-I was using the dof calculator that is printed on my two lenses to make sure that my shots have a very deep dof... They do not look like that though...
-I was trying to use very fast shutter speeds but unfortunately I find my shots shaky with much blurred movement on the backgrounds

More specifically:

3. I am sure that this one has an aperture of 5.6 or 8 but the motorcyclists do not look in focus

4. same problem with the horses here: Aperture was 11 or 16

5. same here aperture 16 and tried to get focus from 2 meters to infinity

6.also here I wanted to have very large depth of field.. the boy is out of focus

7.very weird out of focus scene...

8. daughter out of focus

9.here aperture was 16. bikers look out of focus

Why I am so bad?? Sad
