Tutorial part 1 — getting the camera ready to shoot.
Tutorial part 2 — using the camera.
While I finish out the roll and process, here are some images from about a year ago shot using this camera. FPP RetroChrome 320 slide film. It’s grainy but nice. I used it when I shot with the Promaster 2000PK too. Developed in hopelessly exhausted E6 chemicals.
Tutorial Shoot Images
Ilford Pan F 50 expired “Dec 2002”. Developed in Kodak HC-110.
I had a plethora of “happy accidents”. I…
- Misread the expiration on the film box. If I had realized it was 14 years out of date, I would have adjusted the shooting ISO downward or used different film.
- Didn’t check the internal battery and wasted a frame opening the back to reset the counter to ‘1’.
- Underexposed shots of the gatos using a 2800 AF flash that was malfunctioning. Jem did start grooming Goober so it turned out to be a better image.
- Tried to share the roll with another camera by cutting it in half in the dark bag after I shot the first half. I misjudged half way and ruined the apple depth-of-field test images.
- The film felt odd going on to the developing reel but I was in a hurry and didn’t take the time to re-spool. The film jumped the guides and stuck together and came out completely near the end of the film, leading to over-agitation marks on ~ 5 frames.
