No, it should have been 24 shots on Kodak Gold 200.
In my last #FullRollFriday post I mentioned that I went through a phase of acquiring various cameras to try. I wanted to share one of the more interesting rolls of film with you.
Almost all my cameras were either free (from friends and relatives) or cheap. They were cheap because I tended to buy “untested” cameras. My Canon EOS 600 was £12, the Box camera was £5, the Chinon CX was about £10, and so on… I was drawn to the Exa 1C because it was a 35mm camera with a waist level viewfinder and I LOVE a waist level viewfinder!
Testing out the film advance and shutter it all sounded fine so I loaded a roll of film. It was 2016 and my husband and I were going to Perugia, Italy for a short holiday and I brought the Exa IC along for the ride. I was not expecting the results that I got.
Clearly the film advance does not work correctly and the images ended up over lapping. Bizarrely though this happened in 3s, I don’t really understand how that works but I’ve included a picture of the negatives so you can see. I’m also not sure why it only let me get to shot 8 on this roll before telling me the roll was finished (even if it did think I had taken 12 shots).
When I finally master digitising my own colour negatives I’d like to rescan these in their little threesomes as I think they will be quite interesting to view. For the time being though I just have the scans provided by the lab and those are shared below.
What do you think? Would you be interested in seeing them in their psuedo-triptychs?
