One of the fun things with analogue film is you see the results when you have developed the film. No chimping after each shot but serious thinking about your settings so you get the shot right.
Past Thursday I went shooting in Zeeland with the Olympus OM-1 and I had the intention to do some long-exposures too.
I found two spots and on the first location I made several images with exposure between 8 and 15 seconds. On the second spot the light was dimmer so I managed some 50 second exposures.
Every single negative where long-exposure was involved has a rather large darker kind of smear making the capture unusable.
It is camera related as I took shots with different lenses.
Normal photography shows no problem whatsoever so I guess it had to be a leak somewhere in the front of the camera.
I include two images just to show you how bad the damage is.
O yes, I have also some issues with the Olympus OM-2n. Massive light leaks.
That’s for another post though.
