About 4 years ago I won 2nd place in a small competition, the prize, a Kodak SUC (Single Use Camera). It’s spent time in the glove box of the car, it’s been bumped around in my work bag, and finally over the last month I’ve made the effort to finish it off. They contain an 800 speed film, certainly the results are grainy, although part of that could be my scanning – another post on that whole topic soon!
Of course it’s the simplest of cameras – seems soft at the edges, looking at the shot of the trees. I removed the film carefully – the film is re-wound into the cassette as it is exposed, so that can be done in the daylight. This model is easy – just “clipped” together either side. I have now re-loaded it with some FP4 – that’s another post!!
I have moments where the “fun” of trying new films, cameras, and the likes, gets over-ridden by the frustration of using scanners and computers. I’m trying a new scanner and although the scanner hardware seems capable, the bad design of the software makes it hard to tell. While I’m fully enjoying blogging, there are times when I would seriously consider going back down to 2 film cameras, one 120 and one 35mm and having all the processing and scanning done by a lab – certainly this would help my blood pressure! Ask me tomorrow and I’ll feel differently no doubt!
