I wanted to take my Petri 7S along for some simple fun shooting, but unfortunately its shutter was stuck again. Even worse than that, when I opened it up I discovered that it had a loose aperture diaphragm blade that appeared to be jamming the shutter.
I might poke around in its innards some more, but given that these cameras go for around $20 in decent shape it probably isn’t worth my time to try fixing it again.
Instead I brought my Polaroid 320 along and finished of a pack of Fujifilm FP-3000B black & white film that had been loaded for a while.
The impressions I shared about this camera last time hold true, but the high-speed film produced very contrasty results in direct sunlight like you see above. In lower light levels such as in shade or indoors it was more even.
I also popped off a few flash bulbs just for fun using its original flash accessory. The smell of the burnt bulbs brought about a nostalgic reaction in me, although my boys both said they smelled horrible!
