Roll 2


Here is my 2nd roll of film and the gear used was a Zenit 11, which I use quite a bit which means £5 on eBay well spent, for once, a Helios 58mm f 2.0 and again another roll of Kodacolor 200 as I had 5 rolls of it that I got for 75 p and if you want to read more about that or see the first one in this series then the link is here.


Most of these shots were taken on a snow day  as you can probably tell from the pictures  as you can probably tell from the pictures which is a rare occurrence in the south of England.


When I got this roll of film back from the Lab I noticed on the prints that there were random blue splurges on the prints but I thought this might just have something to do with the printer but when I inspected the negatives there were definitely some spots on them. I do not know what caused this but I do now believe that it didn’t have anything to do with the Lab as I have got other films developed there bad they have all come back fine. I believe that it is the fault of the Kodacolor 200 as on the other rolls there were blue spots but not as many as the ones on this roll of film.


I use the Zenit 11 and I don’t know why I use and like it so much because technically it is a bad camera as it has no TTL metering it only has a Selenium cell which I am pretty sure is dead but I still wouldn’t know how to use it. Also the shutter Speeds are only 1/30, 1/60, 1/125, 1/250, 1/500 and Bulb, the build quality isn’t great and the viewfinder isn’t very big or bright. I think I like it so much because I have a soft spot for Zenit’s as my first film SLR was a Zenit EM which I got with a Helios 58 mm f 2.0 (Which is the lens used in these photos) for £5, and ever since then I have been hooked on collecting film Cameras.
