More expired-in-1997 Fuji print film.
Merry Christmas everyone!
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.
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.
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.
Another story. The little guy had moved his bone beyond the reach of his chain. We moved it closer for him.
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”.
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?
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.
Canon 60D with Sigma DC 18-250mm 1:3.5-6.3 Macro HSM.
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.
