    SUNNY !! So after 4 days inside with NO Exercise I ventured out into the Cold Wind of Brentwood Essex with a black CANON AE-1 with the infamous 'Squeak' and took a couple on a short length of outdated ( but FREE ! ) 1993 HP5+ rated at 125 ASA which I processed in 'Stock Stength' FX-15 ( Acutol-S ) formula as I wanted to see if Stock gave finer grain than the 1+1 i usually use. On Scanning I think the negs look the same !
    here I used a Canon SSC FD fit 50mm f1.4 off a FTbn at f6.7

    Back in The Warm I set up the Glass Fish and used a TOKINA AT-X FD fit 28-85mm f3.5-4.5 at 'Close Focus'

    I then took off the AE-1 Base-plate and lubricated it with a minute amount of Sewing Machine oil from a syringe and needle to see if the 'Squeak' was cured.
