52 Cameras: # 133 — Sears FF35 Motor Drive




Some color correction for the old film — this camera got the 2nd half of a 1997 Fuji 400 roll.
I hope I can fix/remove the weird drips. I like a couple of the images enough to try with swabs and distilled water.

This guy decided to shoot with cameras he could get for 99P (under a pound UK) and the Halina Speedy 33 was his first project camera: https://austerityphoto.co.uk/halina-speedy-33-poundland-camera-no-1/

Some more images from the first roll (Lomo Earl Grey B&W 100). The light leak caused me to do some imaginative crops.

One of those lucky shots -- Goober's outline fits the contour of my foot perfectly.

Too long before I posted.  I can't remember where we saw this cool bent glass fixture.

I’ll post some color after I scan the 2nd roll. I had it processed at the drug store (rhymes with gall spleens) and specified develop-only and don’t cut the negatives. I got prints and mangled negatives. Their machine sliced right through the middle of some of the frames. They didn’t charge me but I think I’m done with them — it’s not cheap, it’s usually more like a day than the advertised hour, the employees know nothing except how to work the machine, and they can’t follow simple instructions. It was just a test roll but it could’ve been Bigfoot riding Nessie to meet Elvis’s space ship.

14 August 2015 Update
Second roll is expired Fuji 200 film. Fewer bad frames but it still leaks a bit. I’ll use it as a test for my new and improved light seal checker.

Iron gate detail.  I missed the focus point a little at f/1.8 and got the stucco sharp.
