Retro Lighthouse

By Alan_Baseley  
We were having a de-clutter and I came across a couple of films that were at least 15 years past their use by date. so I thought what the heck and loaded this one (A Kodak Gold 200) into a Yashica 35ME (fixed focal length) that hasn't been used or out of the cupboard for going on for 40 years.
Sent the film for processing and got the results back on CD on Saturday. All the shots were a bit underexposed and very grainy.
This is Flamborough Lighthouse, cropped and adjusted in Affinity Photo.
The other film is an Agfacolour 100, which I'll stick into my ME Super and give the combination a tryout. Watch this space

Very nice, Alan. I wonder if any of today's digital cameras would work after being in a cupboard for 40 years?Smile

A worthwhile experiment Alan. I look forward to the next installment.Smile

Good to hear that everything still worked and to see the end result.

Allan: "Waste not want not" a true saying.
I have added a modification by converting to mono and applying noise filter.
