Sometime ago I acquired a Canon FD 35mm 2.8 lens, I also had a Tamron AD2 FD mount. Obviously a Canon camera body was needed. So I picked up a T70 body from a dealer for £19.00p (about $27.00 – €25.00) I decided to use a camera dealer rather than an auction site as I wanted the camera to work as it should, and also have a bit of a guarantee (too many disappointments from auction sites)
The camera works fine, and is in good condition. The lens sitting in front of the camera is a Tamron 28mm 2.5, bought new a few years ago in a clearance sale at Cecil Jacobs for £20.00 including a case. We sadly no longer have any camera shops in Leicester which is a real shame considering both Cecil Jacobs and Jessops started out in the city. So I loaded the camera with a roll of Ilford Delta 400asa (expired 2008) which I found at the back of the fridge next to a jar of out of date black olives !

This one’s quite unusual in that it’s lefthand drive, the number plate is from 1965.

About halfway through the roll of film I remembered that it had only been in the fridge for a couple of years. This became apparent when I developed the film as it was very dense and grainy, and needed some adjustments in PhotoShop.
