I’m taking basic photography at Citrus College, which is mainly film-based. We need to develop film and make our own prints.
My Pentax ME Super[1. My mom gave me her old camera.] has ticked me off for the last time. I’ve shot through about five rolls. A lot of photos weren’t exposed properly. To make things worse, a couple of those rolls weren’t winding after a certain point.[2. I threw away a lot of film because of that.]
I promise I was following what its meter told me! And yes, I tried metering with my Canon EOS 40D and they essentially matched.
Since some photos were turning out just the way I imagined, I don’t think it’s a broken meter.
I was jealous of my classmates’ correctly exposed photos. A couple of them had Canon cameras that supported EF lenses. Why not me?
So, I started searching for a Canon 35mm film camera. I got close to buying a Canon EOS Rebel G for $54 from a nearby eBay seller.
Perhaps I’ll send him my best print of the semester as a gift. Of course, I need to pull that off first. 😉
Bonus: My current lenses will work with it — score!
