The [+ | -] area of my OM-1n is in focus to my eye, but my eyes aren't exactly the best.

Amazing VF on those cameras, and they're a bit smaller than the comparable Canon or Nikon camera. I don't like the lens barrel controls, really, since they're so different from most other cameras, so I often have to look at the camera when I change settings.

it took me awhile to adjust to the shutter speed location to but after awhile i found it more handy than using any of my other slr's. i love my OM-1n.

Couple random polaroids from the 600SE. I should be getting back a boatload of new scans soon.

New problem arose when trying to test the self-timer of the OM-1. It's stuck. When I try to activate it with the small lever, nothing happens. Any input on what I could/should do? :(
It's not that I really care, because I'm not going to use it anyway, but apart from that it's PERFECT in every sense, that's why I'm asking. It's kind of bugging me the self-timer is stuck. And the meter is apparently OOF or something weird. Not that I care, because it's still readable, but still.

Can you scan the whole frame and divide it up in PS? On my Epson 700 it allows me to select the exact section to be scanned in Pro mode. Perhaps the Canon has a similar mode?

Shots from a family member's Olympic iS-1 (funny looking thing with zoom and wide-angle attachments: http://www.google.ca …8&ved=1t:429,r:​0,s:0,i:71 (external link))

I showed my parents the pictures, and the first thing both of them said, "oh, it's so ..." (where I said, grainy?) All things considered, I'm pretty happy with how these shots turned out :)

i can scan the whole thing at either 2400 or 4800 dpi but im afraid if i chop it up i'll lose too much resolution. yeah pro mode is what i'm lacking. i downloaded all 3 files from the canon website so i should have everything... idk at this point.

FED 50 ABTOMAT, p&s auto exposure, expired Agfa 100, rated at 25 ASA. Raised contrast and colour temp a bit in Lr3, as I didn't like the lab scans.

Hey guys! As a digital shooter who developed for the first time today I thought you guys might want to hear a noobies mistakes (there were less than I feared, especially with the film not being mine!)

My school still has a darkroom. My graphic design teacher and I get along and she said it would be fine if someone who knew their stuff taught me. So today a friend and I developed film after class. I managed to forget the couple of rolls of 35mm I have but he had an extra roll of 120 that needed developing.
I practiced getting a throwaway roll on a spool in the light a few times with my eyes close and then I went into the darkroom changing room with the film, a spool and a canister. The pitch blackness of it really threw me a little bit. But once I got the film off the backing paper (this is medium format) I wasn't sure which one was which. I then realized that the shorter one was the film and got it on the spool and in the canister. Needless to say I was very relieved when I pulled my phone out and the light was shining on a roll of paper next to a canister, not film.
He showed me how to develop it and we got it done, the negatives looked good and are drying overnight now!
Just thought I'd share a digital shooter's experience of the darkroom for the first time! Think this might become a much more regular thing for me.
I don't think I've felt as much relief as when I drained the fixer, rinsed the negatives and saw actual images before finishing the process.
