Rollei Redbird - Bad Shots

I shot a roll of Rollei Redbird with my LC-A, and the results went from stunning to horrible! The first 5 or 6 shots were great, and I got some unusual colors for redscale, including silvery greens and blues. Then shots got progressively worse until they were nothing but grainy, fuzzy, greens. I thought I scanned them incorrectly, but rescanning them didn’t matter.

    Was battery failing in your LCA?

    As LCA battery gets too weak, the red light still lights, but it underexposes more and more. Also, heat damaged film loses speed and discolours weirdly.
