    A foray into film - continued

    Wow! Thank you all for your replies. I too was coming round to the idea of abandoning the out of date film and buying some new film. I had seen the 7DayShop offer, shame it's out of stock. I'll see what else is available. Ta for this I have seen the bill boards round here but it's not really...

    A foray into film - continued

    Gosh I didn't realise that I hadn't been on since May. Since then I've had some disappointments, the film I mentioned above came out totally useless. I had also put in two other rolls of film that I had found amongst the undeveloped film and they came out as blanks. So I was in a quandary...

    Rude?

    What an interesting, and very useful, discussion. Many years ago when I started using photography forums (fora??) I decided that I would not criticise or offer critique of any photographs posted because I felt, and still do, that I could not comment on something that was better than my effort...

    Saw this when walking the dog, no camera with me so had to go back later. It's a day-lily according to my books, never seen one before even though I've walked the same route for several years. Pentax K3 + Sigma 18-250. Howard

    A foray into film - continued

    It took a long time to get through the film and to get it developed. I went to Max Spielman again, for two reasons - convenience and cheapness, also I can it back within 10 days - if I'm lucky. Here are some of the latest results. I think they prove that the camera is fine, perhaps the...

    A foray into film - continued

    Thank you everybody for your comments and suggestions, all will be taken on board. I have ordered a film from "Fotosense" ,the cheapest I could find, and I shall have another go. I should have said that I took the film to the local Max Spielman and had it developed on to a CD, it was then...

    A foray into film - continued

    Reading the posts on this forum reminded me that I had a box of unused film somewhere in the house. I eventually found it in a dark corner of one of our wardrobes. There are some 10 colour films and 3 B&W, all are between 8 and 10 years old. I also found my Pentax P30N, I loaded the camera with...

    anglesey mountain

    Hi, If that's Holyhead mountain, or Mynydd Twr as it is known locally, then there would have been no need to "climb" it, it's a nice easy walk to the top at about 700 ft. (you probably knew that). Nice shot, it reminds me we should go again soon. Cheers, Howard
