These are my first few shots with this camera that I received last week

A mixture of shots (some pushed 200) with M 28mm 2.8 and 50mm 1.7

All shots straight out of the camera with a crop to get rid of scanned edges

Developed in Kodak HC 110

ALL thoughts welcome as film is something I have only done a few times

These look pretty good to me - good contrast, nice & sharp.

I've never used Orwo 100 or even seen it for sale anywhere.

Thanks guys.

I got the Orwo from a guy who buys film in bulk. I am trying a few different films out in pursuit of the perfect one.

I think you'll find there is no perfect film, its a horses for courses thing. Different films have different characteristics and so different uses. Then there can be variation in processing, sometimes deliberately done to change the image. A whole world to explore!

Nice set of pictures.

Blimey, Orwo. That's a blast from the past. Suddenly I'm eighteen again, using cheap slide film in pink boxes and being disappointed by the dull, brown colour cast...

Very nice pictures, by the way, varied and characterful.
Best wishes,

Andrew
