Canon AE-1 Program. New pony in the stable. Now to run a test roll through it. #35mm #film #believeinfilm #ishootfilm #canonfd #filmphotography pic.twitter.com/ERGqpzKcFQ— Rick Scheibner (@rickscheibner) November 21, 2018
I wasn't sure about adding another 40-year old camera to the lineup, but I thought I would give it a go and see how things came out. I ran a roll of Kentmere 400 through it and photographed the same image at different shutter speeds, allowing the camera to adjust the aperture with each click of the wheel.
Glad I did. All of the exposures are consistent, not something I can always say with the A-1.
Test roll complete, exposures consistent throughout the shutter speed settings. Welcome to the family Canon AE-1 Program. This will be a fantastic every day shooter to go along with the A-1. #ishootfilm #believeinfilm #filmphotography #35mm #35mmfilm pic.twitter.com/yySj0mIkaq— Rick Scheibner (@rickscheibner) November 22, 2018
I should probably do this same test with my A-1. I'd like to see just how inconsistent those exposures are. Or is it just my imagination? Time will tell.
So, it will be good to have an additional camera in my bag. It can be frustrating to reach for a camera only to realize it has a completely wrong roll of film in it for your situation. I know, film problems.
And yes, I need to post more. I hadn't posted anything since August, over three months ago. But I have another post coming through the pipeline soon.
