Found plates

The film that was inside the camera that you just bought holds images of days gone by.

Thanks! I've had a fair bit of experience at this point, scanning both these and my own. Probably could be improved, but I have a system now that works for me...

Wow! I'm always blown away by the image quality they managed way back when.

And yes, very nice scans!

Makes you wonder what developers were used for those old plates. I was looking up online and most were like a Dektol MQ type.

If we all saw the world the same no one would need a camera.

Yes, that's what I've heard as well. I started out with Dektol, as that is what Eastman House recommended. I went through quite a bit of it, then discovered that D76 1:1 works just fine -- and later heard from Nick Brandreth (of Eastman) that he is using D76 now as well. As it is my standard developer for film, I just stuck with it. A little less active, but the results are good.
