These last pictures are taken last spring with another Canon Demi - see here.

I cut and taped a piece of the old film and protection film to the window to stop light from exposing the new film. The sticker with "200-800" indicates that I'm using 200 ASA-film in the cassette but the camera is pre-set to expose at 800 ASA. This m
