So, after a long wait, I've finally got some results back from shooting with my Bessa R3M. I ran a roll of Neopan 400 through it first and given that I don't home develop yet, the lead time to get the results is honestly a bit frustrating. I realise it's not digital, but I find it useful to still have a vague recollection of the shot I took to make a connection. I also found it curbed the enthusiasm slightly, so next I'm going to try a roll of XP2 to help expedite the process.
Love to hear your thoughts.
