Its Massively underexposed indoors you would need to drop to about f/2 1/30th at 200iso and it will still be grainy. you may even need to use a 800 iso film to even be able to handhold indoors

I'm still learning how to use film, its so tricky since you don't know what you got until its developed but at the same time I like it like that.
for future reference york, use [t] instead of [img] when your pictures are huge and it'll shrink pics down to clickable thumbnails
Thanks daj. And my Uncle has been invited to a cat walk and is going to ask if I can come along! :D (Also he is giving me his old film camera, the SLR YASHICA FX3 2000.)

Oh God the lenses my Uncle gave me have fungus |:
[QUOTE=yorkster111;34867088]Oh God the lenses my Uncle gave me have fungus |:[/QUOTE] one of the 50mm's I got in the set of the black Nikon FE and some lenses (thankfully the same lens that has issues focusing to its extents, so I'm not too buggered about it) has some odd golden dust inside one of the elements that just kind of floats around. The strangest part is that the dust is APPARENTLY from what looks like a fucking mealworm, who's husk can occasionally be shaken into view. I really should take a picture of that thing SPEAKING OF THE BLACK FE, I confirmed today that it's working fine, sans metering, which means I'm stuck at the mechanical 1/90 setting. Not too bad. Shot some film like a tourist from my sister's car as we drove to a gig in the loop, got some moderate results, and a good handful of terribly shaky results. Oh well, have some dip/triptychs taken with my phone because I don't have the scanner at my house and I just got the stuff back [img]http://i.imgur.com/cYGVY.jpg[/img] highway through the city [img]http://i.imgur.com/VIRXC.jpg[/img] I really want to get a nice high res scan of that skyline pic, I love it. Also the left pic started floating away because of the fan in my room when I took the pic but whatever you get the pairing. [img]http://i.imgur.com/X7Zuy.png[/img] 3 different times, same day, average view from my room
the shot of the cars is beautiful dai, can't wait to see it scanned!
Well going to leave the lense out in the sun and see if it kills the fungus if not see if any Jewish or Indian shops are up to cleaning it for a cheap price. |:

Someone stop me going on ebay I ended up winning a Praktica Super TL2 for £13.98 with P&P. I already have enough cameras from once soviet occupied countries.
Looks like I'm sticking with the Vivitar V2000 I pretty much feel like this :C [video=youtube;xLqAUpowW0g]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xLqAUpowW0g[/video]
The Zenza's uni have are pretty busted up, can't take out Hasselblads and RB/RZs till 2nd year but thankfully these are in quality condition. [img]http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3616/3571358758_da38e29122.jpg[/img] Bought £19 worth of Ektar, Portra 400 & 800. Can't wait to see the results.
ah you lucky guy can't wait to see your stuff
Found another Patterson System 4 tank and it has room for developing two rolls at once. Too bad between two tanks I only have two spools. It's a pity 110 film isn't easy to get anymore. I really want to try out my Auto 110. I found it while looking for my timer.

Vancouver. :v:

[QUOTE=DoubleDD;34987213]Don't sweat it, I just had a feeling you mixed them up. Shame you didn't have the F1.2 version though![/QUOTE] That'd be amazing :v: Too bad most lenses are way out of my price range. Though I saw some third party k-mount lenses on keh for like $20. Maybe for shits and giggles I'll order one. Don't have much to lose, really... But yeah, gonna go out today (the sun came out!) and take some photos with my mom in a bit. This'll be fun.
I loaded the bloody camera wrong the first time. And my second roll I basically wasted by rewinding it too far to make sure the sprockets caught. Blagh. I'm gonna make this third roll count.
