Bit of a windy morning, but I am going to brave the winds. Have to go out anyway, appointment already booked. I will be using up the last of my film, then I can get it off to be processed / developed.

I will have to find the scanner, and try and scan them. Although not sure how to scan negatives, just read up on it, and it says illuminate the negative, and a few other steps.

I quite like the last one...
I'm not familiar with your camera...but, what lens did you use?.
Now had I kept notes of what lens I was using, I would have been able to tell you. But when I mentioned taking notes of my lens and settings, others on here said don't bother, just get out and take the photos. As they never bother noting things down, when using film.

Just a couple of the poop images, YES I know they are c**p. :confused:
Some investigation work needed as they don't look at least sharp.....just to add as you might have forgotten :- the more you use the telephoto end the more you have problems with camera shake. e.g, at 28mm you could probably get a sharp picture at 1/30 sec or less, but at 300mm you would need at least 1/250 sec preferably more hand held.

I thought I had a fast enough shutter speed, but can't remember what it was now.

OK I am going to have to confess, :sorry:

The above photos are were NOT scanned in, I took a photo of a photo. The prints don't look as bad, I did try to scan the photos, but they come up as tiny images, and look bad.

o_O:D just another point in case you have forgotten:- when there is a mass of white sky in the scene the camera can get fooled into exposing for the sky and not the subject that you want, but if blue sky in the scene it doesn't matter so much erm why? well if interested could explain o_O

I only asked what lens you used because they didn't look particularly sharp.....
It is hard to decide if it's lens/camera/poor technique to be honest.
** Although, I see these aren't scanned images just a 'photo of a photo' so it makes it difficult to know what the issue is.

Even the indoor photos were exposed, lens was wide open.

I don't think they are too bad considering you haven't used film for some time... focus does seem a bit not quite there, as well as exposure, but that's something you could work on.
At least you know it all works...
