Note, this post was made back in 2011 and it was my first adventure with cameras designed for bulb flashes, I’ve kept it for historical purposes. For a detailed explanation of why it failed please read Mike’s comment at the foot of the post.
Well, here it goes.
What a freakin’ disaster! The film was so expensive and I just wasted it.
But wait … there’s more …
The modern-ish flash I used, even when set to manual, wasn’t sync’d with the Comet’s 1/50 shutter speed so the flash never seemed to reach its subject and back. I did try some flash using Bulb mode but I thought the flash would be too bright for the fixed f11 aperture and diffused it. I was very wrong.
I’m not sure when I’ll be able to justify spending money on another roll but I’ll make sure I’m shooting outside with it and if I need to use flash I’ll be using bulb.
