Test Roll from the Canon Sure Shot TELEMax

Test Roll from the Canon Sure Shot TELEMax

A couple of months ago, I mentioned in this post that I bought a film camera at a thrift store for $4!

I finally finished the test roll, got it developed, & this is how the shots turned out.


Jeremiah & I definitely made some focusing mistakes by not locking in the subject before taking the photos. I don’t mind the mistakes I made because I’m always eager to learn—it’s the only way I can get better.

These are all poorly scanned by me because I didn’t know how they were going to turn out. It was a test roll, after all. I didn’t want to pay the extra $ for a CD file if nothing turned out great.
Now that I know that the camera works fine, I can’t wait to play with it again (but only after I rotate my other film cameras 😅)

Where I Get My Film Developed

I’ve mentioned it in past posts before, but I still feel like I should mention it because Foto Express in Downtown San Jose, CA always does a great job with my photos. They often are able to process my photos the same day or the next day vs. Walgreens or CVS, which could take up to a week. I also prefer Foto Express because I like the quality of their CD scans & they sometimes stay open later so you can pick up your prints.

What I Use To Scan My Photos

I normally get my photos on a CD file at Foto Express, but with this being a test roll, I opted not to get a CD because I didn’t want to pay the extra $ if nothing turned out right. Without the CD, I decided to just scan them at home on my Canon PIXMA MG3222.

What Film I Used

For this test roll, I used a Fujifilm Fujicolor Superia X-TRA 400.
