The Four Horsemen…
1960’s Mamiya-Sekor 1000 TL. M42 lens mount.
1976 Vivitar 250/SL, M42 lens mount.
1983 Nikon FG, Nikon F-AI lens mount.
I just got back my negs from the Nikon, shot on 100 ISO color print film that’s 13 years expired. The ends of the roll are badly damaged and color-faded (looks like old photos!), but the middle of the roll seems to have retained it’s color suppleness quite a bit better, but still has a faded, oldish look.
First shot of the roll. geez.
Last shot of the roll.
New in the box 1800dpi 35mm film/slide scanner. Thrifted for $6.
Typing on film with a carbon ribbon doesn’t work well. The carbon just wipes off.
a cloth-ribbon manual, however, works great, but you gotta pound the keys firmly to make a good impression
Used the already-exposed roll of film I found in a camera for this. all but one exposure on this roll was too badly faded to make anything out, so – ART PROJECT!
Here’s the one exposure on the mystery roll that halfway came out. No biggie. I found that Walgreens will develop your film for $6 a roll if you specify just developing and no prints. That’s half their advertised rate.
