I need to stop shooting expired film. Somewhat expired film can be arty. But too expired, and film that probably wasn’t stored well, just makes for terrible results.
Todd gave me a FED2, and I put a roll of film through it a few weeks ago, and it worked fine. This week, it didn’t go so well. I was shooting some rolls I got from a random guy I met in a Tacoma camera store, who had brought his old gear in for appraisal. He said the film was 20 years old. It was old Kodak Gold. It appeared to be in mint condition, but it was probably heat damaged. I over exposed by a stop, but that wasn’t enough, or it was just too far gone.
These were with a 35mm Canon screw-mount lens I have.
These are with a 15mm Voigtlander f/4.5 lens, which I’ve used many times in the past.
These brighter spots only happened on this one roll, so I know its not the camera doing it.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some more rolls from that batch that I need to throw away.
