Hello,

Finally ran a roll of film thru it. Mailing it now to Dwayne's for processing. I should have the results in a little over a week.

Thanks,

Lens came up great. I have been working on an old Minolta recently that was in a similar state. Wish I could see pics of your camera but they seem to have vanished.

Hello,

Interesting: I went back to check post#23 where the pictures are. Only 1 showed up. I refreshed the page and most of them showed up. A third refresh and all came up. Not sure what is going on here.

Thanks,

Hello,

The results are in! We have a winner!

Just got my negatives back from Dwayne's. This was an old Walgreens 800 roll expired about 5 years ago. But I keep my film stash in the fridge in a black bag.

What a better way to test a classic camera than in a classic car show with my father who is a classic in himself?
Unfortunately, the show was a wash as it was not raining: It was pouring torrentially! We saw countless cars making a U turn in front of the show and going home.

Untouched scans from the negatives:

Can't resist. I'm a Corvette guy


And to finish the roll, my favorite tree in bloom: Flamboyan


So, we have a winner despite the hot shoe not working.
The camera and the lens are seeing the light again!
Thank you for accompanying me in this journey! It was a lot of fun!
What do you think?

Thanks,
