Huazhong SFJ-3 Results

Shooting film always involves a bit of uncertainty. Old cameras are prone to shutter problems, light leaks, and myriad other things that can go wrong. All this, in addition to user error, which is always more likely when shooting with an unfamiliar camera, can lead to poor results.

When you add in the factor that this particular camera is a somewhat rare knockoff with extremely limited information about it online, waiting for the results on this roll was nerve wracking.

However, upon seeing the results, I am very pleased. The images are surprisingly sharp and contrasty. I used a roll of Ilford Delta 400 film that was a few months expired, but that did not have any significant effect on the results.

The only problems were user errors, including overlapping frames and an inadvertent double exposure.
