Oldish skool

Well, I’ve decided to take the plunge and now own my first film camera since a 10 year old me broke his little 126 point and shoot.

While walking around York at the weekend I came across a little stall in Newgate Market selling secondhand film bodys. Had a pretty good chat with the owner, had a play with some Canon bodies and a drool over a nice Mamiya and then gave in and got the wallet out.  So I’m now the proud owner of a Canon EOS 300, for which I paid the bargain price of £40.

Luckily there was a camera shop just round the corner so I aquired some Ilford XP2 to have a play with and I’d bought the DSLR with me so I had a 50mm lens to play with.

So there’s about 48 shots of badly exposed portraits, blurry vikings and highlight blown metals sat in 2 film tubs needing developing. Just need to find somewhere in Nottingham to drop them off.
