... and I haven't shot with film in about 7 years. Totally forgotten everything. HALP
remove lens cap
Thanks guys, it's all starting to come back to me
don't open the back until you have wound completely, and preferably in 'subdued light'
I'm bidding on an EOS-1 on ebay right now so I can take it to class and look like an asshole
no canon ae-1 no care
The eos-1 is a way beastlier camera, but not as much of a classic
Being able to use EF mount lenses that are also compatible with my DSLR is >*
thats why I bought a n90 for my film class.
the kids in the class kept saying - damn your pictures are so sharp.
I just won an eos-1 on ebay for $20
I have a canon ae-1 setup, I would love a nikon slr to use my lenses but I only have a 50 and 35 for ff :/ I already have that for my canon flim setup so its not worth it
Yeah, nobody bid on it because "the meter seems to be off". I dunno what that means but for $20 it's worth finding out.
ahh my meter broke on my ae-1, I had it fixed It is tough to shoot in manual, with manual everything, and not be able to atleast meter the light and see how the exposure will be
Well if it's off by a certain amount I was just going to adjust the exposure bias. For how much I paid I guess I could send it somewhere to have it fixed maybe.
Worst case scenario, take the focus screen and put it in your dslr I am tempted to try that sometime, it seems way sketchy though
Worst case scenario is not being able to compensate for the "off" meter and being forced to shoot in M
Yea but you still need a light meter to shoot in M, well atleast I would haha, especially on film, no test exposures ftl
Yeah, well I have 2 other canon film slr's so I'm going to line them up and see what the meter on the eos-1 is up to.
no elitist /w a pentax K1000 no care.
all manual, all the time
Stock up on ilford HP5
I have to say that developing B&W film was one of the most fun & interesting photography classes I've ever taken. Loading the film onto the reel was always a bitch though. In the beginning, it was tough to get a complete roll without wrinkles, even when you thought you had it right. I later learned that we were using ancient fucking reels and the newer plastic ones are MUCH easier to load! Hopefully you won't be with a bunch of idiots who fuck up the chemicals, the smaller the class the better.
Here's a basic refresher...
Funny story, this being my last semester of college and I'm totally finished with everything and have an open schedule... I also signed up for BEGINNING photography in addition to advanced Anyway the prof in this class sackrides the K1000 like it's going out of style.
BTW both professors were pissed but they're going to let me do it
everybody else in any of my photo classes sucks/blows donkey dick when it comes to photography.
