more film

I got some more films back and I love them.  The negatives are gorgeous but scans themselves weren’t brilliant.  A little nip and a tuck and some removal of dust and fluff from the jpegs and I have a load of shots I’m really happy with.

I took a bunch with the Holga again – its one of those cameras that when you get the films back, you kick yourself for having left it so long to use it.  I promised myself I’d take a few dozen shots a week, but as yet, I’ve not done that.

Lomo #fail

Regular readers may recall that Jay and I bought a couple of Lomo cameras last year – I got a Diana Mini and Jay got a Supersampler.

Well, as I mentioned, the Diana is shocking – the film hard to load, it gets jammed, the focussing ring is too small and the film strips on rewind. I have a film stuck in there at the moment – it refuses to move forward. Epic #FAIL.

We had similar trouble with the Supersampler – it’s a bugger to load, shredded the film on rewind but redeemed itself with excellent photos. I loaded up another film and took it to Melbourne – I’ll get the shots developed in the week, but I have every confidence they’ll be pretty cool.

It was a shit to get the film out though and a little metal tag thing inside had come away and scratched the film surface – fooook!!!

Then the next film would not load at all. It kept tearing the film no matter what I did.

So both cameras are going to go in the bin. Stupid arse things.

I’m ordering a Superheadz Golden Half next week – hope its better than the Lomo ones!
