You need to use the kind that is wound up inside a can. They're single use, but then they also hold the images for a very long time.

That's funny....... I figured out how to open the memory card slot.

Seems the previous owner didn't take his cards out! Now to figure out if they're black & white or color cards.

After a quick test of the shutter, there's some issues with some of the speeds. It's a hair over-exposing at 1 sec through 1/60, but only about 10%.

1/125 is closer to 1/30.

1/250 and 1/500 are close enough.

Above that, it's all over the place, but 1/1000, 1/2000 and 1/4000 aren't even close. They're more like 1/60 to 1/500.

Maybe with a bit of 'exercise' they'll settle down. I'll spend some time tonight just clicking away and check them again tomorrow.

Well, the first roll of film has been run through it. Just took a stroll out through the back yard and beyond. Get it developed, and I'll see how it works.

Waiting for the pix on the edge of my seat Ken.

Well, the first roll is somewhat of a success! The camera functions, but tends to overexpose. I'm looking into having the shutter fixed.

In the meantime, here's four from yesterday:

These classics look good Ken. I would agree that 1&2 are slightly overexposed, but it could also be due to a scan with too much gamma.

What lens - 24-120?
