Film Series: Part Two

Hello, internet friends! I am back again with another film post. Sadly, my poor Chinon’s (which I used for my Film Series: Part One) shutter locked after I developed that single roll – that’s the nature of film cameras, I suppose! Film cameras cost a fair bit to repair, so you’re actually better off buying a new one if the film camera breaks – for them to unlock the shutter of my camera, it probably would cost around $300 + dollars and that is only a basic problem, nothing major.

When I went home last month, my dad gave me his old pentax (which I can recall, is actually my great grandfathers – true vintage!). I was semi-hopeful, film cameras, especially when they are old – but I can’t believe it actually works! I also went to the FOCUS zine + film camera exhibition last weekend, where I picked up a $5 RICOH Af-5 (a little point and shoot – apparently it has ‘light leaks’ in certain situations, but I have had no problems so far – in fact, the photos presented have been some of my favourites).

I am excited to keep honing in on my film skills, it is very different to DSLR!
