Protopan 400 @ 100, developed at box speed.

My Yashica Minister D was bought by my father in 1970, the year I was born. It still works in every aspect and the meter cell is still pretty much acurate however 1/500 top speed is hard to deal with on a regular sunny day and I do like to work with big apertures and narrow DOF.

Okay nevermind. I loaded the camera with Protopan 400 (the crazy film) and rated it at 100 ISO but I’ve developed it at box speed.

The result was low contrast, maybe some of the shots are a bit overexposed, and noticeable grain. i don’t think I’ll use this combination very often.

PS: I know I’ve not been posting very… interesting examples visually. I need some time off work and I need to change the scenery.
