We will see… :sweat_smile:
Quick look at the weather and I see it’s raining :confused:


#83

looks a beaut that mate

mirror and stuff all clean behind the lens?

Does it look like the light meter is all working ok? (the needle in the viewfinder)


#84

All looks in good nick from what I can see. The light meter is working fine. Only little thing is a tiny yellowish spot in the very corner of the view finder… at least I hope that’s all it is… as it doesn’t look to be much of a problem… guess I’ll see in the future :slight_smile:

But yeah, quick change of batteries and it looks good to go


#85

excellent - these things are pretty old so it sounds like you found a good one

exciting


#86

Quick question about film actually… is it ok in hand luggage at Airports n that? Heard that x-rays can knock the colour funny n shit :confused:


#87

Yeah I’m pleased with how it looks, battery and motor compartment are still there, came with the flash and the shoe mount thing which can go missing apparently :slight_smile:


#88

I’ve started and framing some of my pics. Gonna put them right along the wall leading to the bathroom


#89

I’ve taken plenty of cameras through airports with no noticeable change to colours on films.

I think I saw a warning when I was going through San Francisco airport a few years back that it could affect film over 1600 ISO, but the only film you can get at that speed nowadays is b&w anyway so :man_shrugging:

And I’d ALWAYS take cameras through in hand luggage. Have you seen the way that baggage handlers throw bags around?


#90

I did some printing today just a bunch of film I had. Nothing in particular. I’ve never done it before so there’s lots of trial and error. it’s fun spending the afternoon mostly in the dark.


#91

When you say printing do you mean developing and enlarging?

If so… Is it difficult? It’s something I really want to get in to


#92

I’ve only done enlarging (as of today). It was pretty easy to get the basics. Once i’d used the enlarger to expose the paper for the print it goes through a machine. Its probably a bit more difficult messing about with the chemicals (with colour at least, black and white is easier)

The basics of the enlarger are pretty simple though. I think it gets a bit more complicated when you start colour balancing. I did a little bit of that and some of them came out fine, but it’s something you could tinker with forever.


#93

A machine you say?

I’ve started getting obsessed with film

Gonna develoo some black and white and use a film scanner to get it into computer

Have youbdine any colour developing?

Is that tricky?


#94

Never developed anything myself. people start with black and white before colour cause it’s a lot easier. I think there’s more room for error and you don’t have to be as precise with things like temperatures.


#95

I have a photo of that red garage door too (which I liked until I’ve seen yours, which is far better)


#96

By no means a photographer but I enjoy it.

I’ve shot on film mostly, pretty much forever, never really had a digital camera, then anything else is just on my phone. (In fact that’s a lie, I do have a digital camera but I’ve used it a handful of times in the last 5 years and never liked any of the photos from it)

Anyway, none of this is ‘photography’ but this is the stuff I like taking photos of https://www.instagram.com/skylinermcr/


#97

Got my first roll of film developed yesterday and scanned at home. Something so magical about film.



#98

Some great shots there :smiley:

I sent my test roll off to be printed and developed so expecting that soon. All terrible photos I’m sure, but wanted to make sure it works ok


#99

This was just with my little point and shoot - gonna have to take the SLR next time

I couldn’t wait so I went to jessops and did the 1 hour developing last night!

Post yours if you’re happy with them


#100

Ooooh didn’t know jessops did a one hour developing thing… :+1:


#101
