    Exacta 135: The Cheapest Camera Ever?

  • Testing an Expired Film of True Colors

    Testing an Expired Film of True Colors

    I got some expired True Colors film from my friend. It was cheaply sold for 30 pesos -- a little short of $1 USD. So I tried these films in different cameras and I got exciting results. Although I was expecting that the color shifting won't do much of a hassle, the colors in these expired films came out different. The film was imported from Italy. I don't know how many films of these are still out there but it's a nice way to hunt out!

    The Zenit 12 SD represents one of the last 'unbreakable' Zenit cameras, built like a tank. Unfortunately, it has a tendency to handle like one too, but once you master it the combination of reliability and excellent optics (58mm Helios lens) become persuasive.
