Electro 35 – Second impressions

Photography

It was suggested that before I write off the Electro 35 I should try a roll of color film. So I followed the advice. The next weekend I loaded my favorite cheap drugstore film (Fuji Superia) in it and wandered around the Edgefield. It was a beautiful autumn day and a great opportunity to play cameras. I had a wonderful day  shooting the roll, along with some pinhole, and when I was done I dropped it off at the Walgreens. I had it back in an hour. When I picked up my negatives the Walgreen’s “Photo Expert” was impressed! He said that there were some good shots on there. I was so incredibly thrilled to have finally impressed the Walgreen’s “Photo Expert” and I couldn’t wait to go home and see what had impressed him so.

I think it’ll do.

I loaded it with my favorite film yesterday, Portra 160. I can’t wait to see what this lens and that film make together.

  1. I’m so glad you gave the Electro another chance. Weird; the colors seem a little desaturated. But I’m jealous that your Walgreens still processes film. All the one-hour labs near me are gone. Good luck with the Portra!

    1. the light here is weird and dark this time of year so maybe that’s the cause of the lack of saturation? Or the walgreens processing..I’m looking forward to seeing what other films do in this camera. I have some Ektar I’d like to try. Thanks for the suggestion! I’m glad I gave it another shot!
