International 828 Film Day results

Last week, August 28th, was International 828 Film Day. I loaded some decade-and-a-half out-of-date Fuji 200 film into my Flash Bantam 828 camera andshot about two dozen pictures. The trouble was that I should have only had about eighteen. I had not secured the film on the take-up spool. Duhhhh.

 

So, the 30th, I secured the film and took about a dozen pictures. None was as satisfying as the ones I missed. Here are two. I exposed by guess, but all the while aiming at about ISO 60.

 

The long gap between the frames is due to the rough way I wound the film between frames: three half turns is what I estimated and gave it. The orange echos of the sprocket holes are a refractive artefact of my scanner -- I seem to get them whenever I try I include sprocket holes. Oh well.

 

For all its faults, I am glad I gave my 828 a workout on its day.

 

And, I *just* noticed the two signature marks (upper right side) in the Bantam's frame.
