this roll of astia was on real bad trip. first it was loaded in my minolta hi-matic but near the end of the roll i noticed that the batteries were empty. but i did not know at around which image it happened. so i rewinded it and loaded it into the voigtländer cam. the risk was to overexpose most shots at the beginning of the roll. "so what!" i thought. when being at the middle of the roll suddenly the apperture did not open because in my bag the selftimer was moved but as it doesn´t work anymore it did not expose. as the mechanic of this cam is not so hard that you actually notice right away it took me some shots. i just rewinded, fixed the timer and shot again somewhere in the middle of the roll. the results are a mess. so next time i put a roll like that in a more reliable cam. AND: i´m so pissed about the waste of a roll of astia. i started the roll during holidays but there is just one pic i notice - the one with the frisbee.

    The big failures always happen with the "precious" rolls. I feel you brother!

    Beileid fur die Filmprobleme. Blöd wenn man die Momente nicht wiederbringen kann. Das ist dann noch schlimmer als die Rolle teurer Film.

    Oh man wie ärgerlich... Sowas passiert meist bei den tollen Rollen Film, deswegen überlege ich mir oft auch zu genau, was ich wie mache. Mir ist im Urlaub meine Lieblingskamera aus den Händen gefallen! :O Geladen mit ner Rolle Ektachrome 50, die schon Jahrzehnte abgelaufen war.. Die Kamera lag offen auf der Fähre vor mir ;) Ich hab sie geschlossen und den Film zurückgespult.. Der liegt jetzt im Kühlschrank und wartet darauf, dennoch weiter verschossen zu werden.. In der Hoffnung wenigstens ein Bild kann gerettet werden! Mein Beleid hast du :) LG aus Hamburg!
