Roll 195. The junior assistant explores the forest

The junior assistant and I took a roll of strange Lucky SHD100 film into the forest and shot some portraits. Since it is winter I set the ISO dial to 64, to compensate for the snow’s effect on the light meter.

After a bad shopping experience I now have forty rolls of very odd Lucky SHD100 labeled film. It is blue, not grey, and it is spooled on reused canisters, with stickers carrying the Lucky logo. The film is on trial, if I can find any problems with it I’ll get it replaced. Or so the seller says anyway, which is interesting since this film is replacing the scratchy mess he sent me last summer and I shot during the fall.

Anyway, the first roll didn’t come out very well, but this one looks pretty nice actually. It doesn’t look like the Lucky I’m used to. But it has it’s own look. Also it curls like crazy, which makes it a bother to scan.

This was shot with the black Pentax ME, I have a silver one as well, it is a nice camera all things considered, although it only shoots in aperture priority mode. But there’s one problem. The film often unhinges from the takeup side. At first you don’t notice anything, because it keeps winding, but after a while you’re suddenly shooting over and over again on the same frame.

Maybe I should start taping the film down when I load the camera.
