it was november 1982…

And one negative film left the production line, which arrived at my home after forty years. I got it at a auction for about two bucks. He waited a week for a sunny day in the camera. Such old negatives are suitable to be used either with a flash or on sunny days.The result exceeded my expectations. A friendly couple of adventurers allowed me to photograph them and their horses. I was a little worried that this 40’s old negative film would disappoint and embarrass me. Neither the film nor my old Fujica failed. It was a chance encounter and I only had a 135mm lens(yes, the Takumar with the destroyed front lens) with me. In the second camera I had a color Fujifilm C200. Although again I am comparing the incomparable, the winner is clear. 40 year old film.

Fujica ST901 Super-Takumar f 2,5/135mm, expired Fomapan N21 (1982),+1EV, & Canon EOS 500N, STM Camon 1.8/50mm, Fujicolor C200 (swith to BW)
