Now, that's not very nice. True, but not nice.

Try a roll of Ilford Delta 3200 if you want grain... :-)

(Thats real film grain, not that horrible digital 'noise')

Threads like this make me feel really lazy for not making use of my film eos -
I keep meaning to try my 17-40 on it to get that ultra wide experience!

Maybe tomorrow...

Just be careful if you use it on a bright day outside, you end up with 1/8000th sec @ f/22 if you're not careful :-)

I was given an old Pentax ME Super today. Nice little camera. I think there's a problem with the shutter/winder tho because I put some film in and the counter is up to 13 exposures when the shutter has only fired about 5 times.

Still, if I can't get it working properly (which would be a great shame) I will get an adapter and use the lens on my canon :)

I'm kinda fond of tmax 100 pushed 2 or 3 stops myself! :)

Well.. got it today.. I must say.. For $19 I couldn't go wrong.. It works Great! I threw in a roll of the 3200 Illford BW and my 50m F1.4 and was firing off a few.. Then I committed the ultimate .. I put a $1000 24-105 F4L on a $19 body.. and it was amazing!! I am thinking of getting the EOS 1-V Film body if this gets addicting.. Could this be a possible good by to Digital????? ......... Nahhhh!!!

I love the grain on HP5. It's so much nicer than Tri-X or Tmax from my experiences.

You might find you need to set the film speed at 1600 or 1250. I found that worked best for me. Rated at 3200, I always found it a bit thin.
