Mild-Life Crises….What can also happen….

…when you cram a roll of 35mm film into a slightly less cheap, non-plastic (well, mostly)–but still Chinese–TLR (Twin Lens Reflex) camera that is also meant to only shoot 120 film….

…in this case expired Fuji Superia 100-speed color-negative print film…

…and in this case a Seagull 4A (I believe…well, it’s definitely a Seagul, I just can’t remember which model it is but regardless it is without a doubt a…) (a cheap Rolleiflex knockoff)…

…shot sometime around 2010-ish I think…

…couldn’t tell you when it expired…but let’s just say…a long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far…..

…as I recall, I wasn’t really sure if any of these would even turn out since I kind of had to stand on the camera-back to get it to close and lock with that 35mm film canister crammed in there…

…I don’t recommend you trying this with any equipment that you actually care about (like a real Rolleiflex or say, Minolta Autocord)…

…But I DO recommend trying it!…

…much sharper images than what you get with a Holga…

…and you still get those nifty schprocket-holes…

…certainly no stellar photography here, but a fun experiment that I would love to do again someday…

(Highly recommend clicking on these for the slide-showy-thing for a closer look!)

(…well…except for the last one cuz it will actually get smaller in the slide-show-thingy…)

Mild-Life Crises….What can happen….

….when you cram a roll (or two) of expired 35mm color film into a cheap plastic Chinese camera that is meant to hold 120 film…..

….among other things, you get sprocket-holes….

…the film is Fuji NPH color negative…

…says so right there in the film strip edge….otherwise I would have had no idea…

…shot sometime around 2008-2010-ish….maybe….

…expired sometime around 2004-2005 or so….

…(only reason I know this is that this film was only made from 2002-2004)…

…the camera is the (cheap, plastic, Chinese) Holga…

…the Quintessence of Crappaliciousness…

(but more that a little fun to play with…man, I love those blues…)

(…this is also what can happen when you forgot what you had learned about keeping the exposures separate…)
