In one of my recent posts, I put up some digital photos of Brisbane.
I did take a film camera too. A Pentax Espio 105G. I had it loaded with the Focal 100 (see my last post to find out about this film).
As I went through the Airport Security I asked if they would hand check the spare film I had taken (which they were very kind enough to do). However, I had already loaded the Focal film into the camera and that had to go through the X-ray machine. Mental note to self for next trip; don't load film into camera before getting through Airport Security! My concerns were all for naught it turns out; the film was not affected at all!
The Pentax Espio 105G is a great camera to just shove into my bag. It's not too big, it doesn't weigh much and hasn't got all the bells & whistles that my other film cameras have. It's a good camera to have when you're just walking around taking in the sights; small and easy to pull out quickly. It's not too noticeable either, which can be a good thing for street photography.
These are the best of the roll. The film appears to work better in this camera in the outdoors and bright light. With some photos I had problems with the built in flash which just went off each time I took a photo, whether it was needed or not. I thought I had it sorted when it happened again! Gotta try and figure out how to turn flash off!
I also took along a roll of Fuji Superia 100 as well because the Focal 100 roll has only 24 exposures. The Fuji is still in the camera, waiting to be finished off. I'm in no hurry though.
