Film Shooter Challenge

I’d like to send out an invite to everyone shooting film, to join our monthly film shooter challenge.

Svema Foto 200

An interesting film emulsion with a good tonal range.  Images shot with a Pentax K1000 and developed in Parodinal. I’m planning an in-depth review of Svema’s Foto 100 and 200 soon, but I have a couple more rolls to shoot before I make some judgments. Tony

Yashica Electro 35 GSN

This month it’s the Yashica Electro 35 GSN.  I recently purchased this camera from the original owner, along with the Suntar conversion lenses.  What that means […]
