52 Cameras: #108 — Canon T70

More expired-in-1997 Fuji print film.

A lot of scanner noise but nice colors and not too much grain.

Phound Photos Volume 1

There was a partially exposed roll in the Canon EOS 750 when I bought it in late 2014. I used the remainder of the roll as a test and, not expecting much, I had it processed at the drug store. Surprisingly, my shots came out pretty nice. There were also a few exposures from the previous owner.

Since the camera does pre-wind, these are probably in reverse-chronological order.

I looked for a rabbit or a bird or something.  Maybe it's just a test shot or the subject got away.

If you know these people or are these people, get a hold of me through the comments at my Youtube channel so I can send them a CD (kind of low-res since it’s drug store processing) and negatives.

I had to turn off comments on the blog after I was invaded by spam-bots.

52 Cameras: Camera 81 part 2 — Canon A-1

This isn’t a great photo but it may be a great story. Obviously, it’s a begging sign, for want of a better term, but why wasn’t it finished? Was it abandoned for better cardboard? Did they have to flee? Did they get a ride? Did a magnanimous millionaire decide today is the day? We’ll probably never know.

52 Cameras: Camera 80 part 2 — Canon EOS IX

Still waiting. I got the order from Amazon (some other seller but “fulfilled by Amazon”). Instead of APS film, I got a plastic APS film library holder thing. The order was entered correctly; they just didn’t ship film. I wonder if they actually have any film or if it’s a scam to use people’s money for a while. The refund doesn’t process until the returned item is received. Lame.

FPP it is.

I ended up ordering some Fuji APS through Amazon. FPP is reliable but a little more expensive. I’m still in the experimental phase with this camera so I’m going cheap for now. Ultrafine advertises a lot more variety, even Kodak B&W APS, but when you get to checkout there’s an extra charge of $8.95 for “insurance/handling fee”.

Ex-squeeze me?

A padded envelope doesn’t cost much and “insurance”? I’m buying extinct and expired film for $5 a roll — what is there to insure?

Critters in the yard 12 October 2015 — Velociraptors

Not really but sort of. On 4 October 2015, a flock of wild turkeys decided to browse the yard for snacks. There were about twenty in all.

 Just look at them, they're freaking dinosaurs!

Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day: 26 May 2015 — My backup

I didn’t end up using the digital camera (Canon 60D) as much as I thought I would. Most of the shots with the Bell+Howell, I winged it.

The conversion was pretty straightforward — The metal pinhole from the cardboard camera from last year taped to a T-mount lens adapter for the Canon. I only used the needle to make sure the hole was clear and clean of cat hair.

My favorite shot from the Canon. I think the pinhole is larger than necessary so the kit will give something to a kid using the Ridley camera.
