Well, it's good news and bad news. The good news is that, as expected, the Rollei Steve L offered me has produced some beautiful transparencies (which possibly more by luck than judgement seem better exposed than those I took on my EOS for metering!). I shall get them scanned and on my web site as soon as I can. The bad news is that the trannies from the Pocket Kodak are ghastly. So bad I can't even begin to work out what's wrong. The subject is just about recognisable under a haze of fog and what looks like the outline of something hairy (!). I'll get some of those scanned up for suggestions, but I reckon it's unusable for normal use. I'll try giving the lens a good clean, and also try not exposing a frame but leaving the camera in daylight (to see if it's a problem with light leakage). Any other suggestions welcome. Anyway, Steve will be getting a cheque soon, and I shall be ordering lots of nice 120 film (used Provia 100F for the tests, thanks for the recommendation)...
