It’s just over a year since I first posted about my Canon EOS1000F with a sticky shutter. At the time I fixed the issue I recall reading anecdotal evidence on the web saying that such a shutter clean would ensure reliable operation for about a year.
So just over a year on from that sticky shutter clean I felt the time was about right to give the old girl another whirl and see how my repair was holding out.
I also felt that I needed to post something new to acknowledge that The Occasional Photoblogger had just sneaked into the list (at number 25) of Top 30 Film Photography Blogs and Websites. Thanks Anuj.
As it happens, when I picked up the camera to go out shooting, I discovered that there was already a roll of Fuji C200 film in the camera. After finishing the roll and having it developed, I realised that I must have loaded the film a year ago. I am able to work this out as the image below of an old-style second hand store was taken at a small town called Omarama when Lyn and I did a quick road trip around the South Island in Easter 2018.
The rest of the images featured here are semi-random photos taken in and around my home town of Invercargill, or in Christchurch. My film was processed by my local lab, and I scanned the negatives – still quite a learning curve – using my Epson V370 scanner.
Dust blemishes were removed, and a mild vignette added, using my software of choice – On1 Photo RAW 2019.
My next project is to resurrect an elderly Yashica SLR which I was gifted a couple of weeks ago – plus there is a refurbishment of The Occasional Photoblogger website on the way.
