52 Cameras: # 153 — Vivitar A35 Splash Proof




Photoworks ISO 400 film. Expired in 2006. Scanned on a Canon 9000f at 2400DPI and reduced to 1024 on the long side for upload.

The sensor apparently adjusts the flash. The film is 400 but it’s lost speed with age so probably more like 200. Indoor shots are underexposed so the scanner pumps up the gain so I get film grain plus scanner noise. Still, not bad for a cheap camera and cheap, old film.

The munchkin took this one.

My timing was off and I split the car with the pole.

I’ll add a few research screen grabs when I get home.
