So as stories go, this one started off well. Having been in my Dads camera box for eons, it has since been given to me. Figuring its not just a shelf piece and everything seemed to fire I decided to put a roll through it to see if it really was all still operational. So we went on a little visit to Seattle and around Abbotsford and I shot the roll though. I sent it off during the vacation with great anticipation to check the roll, when pickup time came the roll was not there... Eeeeek! I waited impatiently for another week but alas all seemed doomed. So I decided to give it one more roll and the camera trigger decide to give up. After some encouragement and a "technical tap" in several directions it freed up and decided to work again. Then by some stroke of fortune I found the missing roll...Joy of all joys...So now I have a working camera and the first roll through it in maybe 20 years.... or maybe more!!
enough now, here are the results.
|Yellow, Yellow and yellow|
|Fuji F200 EXR and Pal M4 with Wide Angle and Wide Angle Viewfinder|
and on to a few more shots!!!
|Inside and ooops forgot to focus|
|Loading the film...|
As I mentioned this camera had one extra add-on, My Dad had a wide angle lens for it too.... Fantastic!
Since once again it has no working light meter I used cunning guess work and the occasion help from the Sigma DP1s. For this camera I used some Kodak Ektar 100 print film, these results are straight scans only, no craziness.
