    I went out with my Russian FED 4 to support the RED OCTOBER -- use your Commie Cameras month on Flickr
    At the same time I was testing some 04/2000 dated Kodak Gold 200 a Kind Gent had zsent me to see if i could get anything off it as it was so 'Old' and HE was given it with some free camera gear. So I downrated it and home-processed in C41 -- the negs were a little 'weak' -- film needed a little longer in the C41 developer but I managed to get some results -- I CUT the film and processed a short length. LENS is the Industar 61 53mm f2.8

    Don't use film any more, but have fond memories of the Zenit E, my first SLR. People look at them and scoff sometimes, but what an intro to photography.
    The other plus was that if anyone were to try and mug you for it, a smack round the knees with it would see them walking in circles:confused:
