International Commie Camera Day
The results are in for International Commie Camera Day 2009. Or more correctly, the film was developed and the negatives scanned.
I'm pleased with the results, considering it was my first outing with the Zorki. It's a nice camera, feels solid, looks superb, and is relatively quiet. It was almost a disaster on May 1st, as it was bucketing down with rain in the morning, and holding both a camera and an umbella proved too much for my sleep addled brain. However, the afternoon was quite sunny, and leaving 5 minutes early from work allowed me to take advantage of the light. And seeing as I'm reliant on Sunny-16 for shots with the Zorki, difficult light is best avoided if possible.
They seem to have come out alright...and I didn't forget to cock the shutter before messing with the speed.
