I have heard a lot of good things about this film. I have seen a lot of good images from this film. I don't see where it's coming from. Don't get me wrong,and 50 speed film is bound the be finicky and take some getting used to. So I shouldn't expect the world from my first roll. Also let me preface by saying that my first roll probably wasn't in the best camera. I used my Lomo LC-A. Why I did this? Who knows, it has a 50 setting on it and I hadn't used it in a while, so it seemed like as good a reason as any.
But what I was left with when the film was pulled off the spool, was a grainy (very grainy) image. These shots look like they were used in conjunction with a 400 speed film. And as a matter of fact I wish I had used a 400 speed film. It would havelet me have a little more fun with the shutter speeds and not have to worry so much about the low light situations I encountered.
Anyway, onto the images!
