Long live film! Taking a Super Program out for a spin
Posted By: ismaelg, 12-31-2010, 08:46 AM


I have many film bodies and I like to take a different one out on special occasions.
For Christmas, I took this Super Program out for a spin, fitted with the A50 f2

I have an old flash but after the first shot the flash failed and I think it burned inside.
The camera and lens are in perfect condition, and the results confirm it.

As usual, I'm scanning my own ngatives which is the weak link in all this process. I'm sure they can be even better.

I suspect I'll eventually loose my Corvette......

My favorite of the set...

Bokeh anyone?

only with available light

Greetings from the tropics!

I have the same camera in a camera bag in my closet, somehow the bag with the lenses has gotten lost. It's good to see you're using yours. I should grab a second hand lens somewhere for mine. Just so I can take it out one more time before film is completely dead. Nice pictures.
