Canon 500n with Rollei 35mm film

Inspired by the great forums on Google plus dedicated to film photography, I bought a Canon 500n on eBay for $35, attached a Sigma 30mm 1.4 lens and loaded some Rollei 35mm film recommended by the guy at the camera store. First big mistake - using a cropped sensor lens on a FF body results in ugly vignetting - well maybe its now hip but I didn't intend it that way! Oh well. Next I load iso 100 film which is very difficult to use in low light. Just bought some iso 400 B&W and colour film to try next. These were taken in Sydney's Chinatown. I will persist with film for a while and see what eventuates. its a challenge. Enjoy.

sock seller at Fridays markets - cropped to avoid vignetting

who reads papers anymore? apparently not many

Friday markets are a must - great food and life everywhere
