I finally fixed up the bashed up EOS 600 film camera which I had bought a few years ago so my daughter, Giorgia could have some lens with her digital Canon camera start off.
EOS 600 was introduced in April 1989 and takes an awful battery which are quite a pain to find – the 2CR5. However once the battery was replaced the SLR camera was ready to use.
Ready to make images on film. The film to be, on this day of shooting was Kodak Tri-X 400 TX. A fine grain film to use in most situations rated at box speed of 400 ASA.
The film was developed in Ilford DDX for 7 mins. The results are shown below. Along with a video of the day’s shoot.
If you getting into film photography and have some Canon lens this video is perfect for you.
The video contains all the images in PoV style along with a overview of the camera and it’s operation. It should get anyone up and running mighty quickly.
