yesterday! I visited a park with another two friends. 2 film cameras, 1 digital. i think by when I had shot one pic, my friend with the digital had shot 75 .. I managed 26 frames, I can't imagine how many he shot, although I used his camera to take pictures of him also. I am so happy that I have not purchased a Nikon D3100 myself lol, I still can't get to know which combination of buttons changed aperture and which (different) button combination changes shutter speed, lol. I must give two films for developing and printing now.

I'm sure you would have got used to the button configuration in a very short time. Not sure whether you think his having shot a lot more images is a good thing or bad thing. Personally the freedom to shoot more is a great thing, especially when he didn't have the processing costs. At the end of the day it's getting nice images, and nothing to do with who managed to shoot less or more.


My friend kindly sent me the pictures, and I got my 2 films and prints today. I am glad I had only 49 and a half images rather than the bulk he sent me, from which about 150 went to the recycle bin. I think a photographer saves time if he edits a picture before he even shoots it. O.k. I am slow sometimes; yesterday I missed a plump lady resting/sitting on a fat pole. I cocked the shutter but didn't fire it. I finally used my SLR camera today.

^^^ Tee Hee

I took my Fuji GW690 to Canada with me to shoot some lovely 6x9 landscapes and shot 13 films (so 104 shots in all) over 3 weeks. I did however also shoot about 4000 digital shots as well.
Truth be told I'm happier with the digital shots except for a couple from the Fuji.

This one

and this



Bravo Andy! I do think that own developing would be the answer to woes. I can imagine how you can shot 4,000 pictures but I can't imagine sorting them out and processing them. Good lighting conditions yesterday and today helped me shot some indoor frames with natural light, I think 6 in total.


Another two frames shot today, getting closer to the end of the roll.

Great camera; totally weird film… Wink


Lomo Purple? it may take me some time, lol

managed to finish the roll yesterday, it had 2 frames left...


Today, I thought even of not recording the settings on this B&W roll. The grim ripper shot in the loving memory of my uncle. Nature and other oddities from the places I have passed and lived.


today I finished a roll of black and white Kodak BW400CN after visiting a photographic exhibition. I shall take it for development on Monday.

Shot a roll of Ektar yesterday, in my Contax 159, to try out a couple of recent lens purchases. A pair of Tamron SPs, a late 17mm & 35-105 f/2.8. Very impressed with both lenses, and starting to get a little hooked on the Adaptall-2 lenses.

A couple of shots of the Turner Contemporary in Margate, taken Saturday on Ektar 100, with a Contax 159MM & Tamron SP17mm f/3.5... the lens was a very nice find for £50, I think.
