Question about Photography
I was in Europe for two months. I had taken 60 rolls of Fujifilm (400). Within a week my Pentax IQZoom camera failed to advance the film and stopped functioning. I bought a new camera in Hamburg. Within a week, that camera also failed to advance film and stopped functioning. I purchased a third camera, and while this one advanced film, I ruined 12 rolls trying to get the film to load properly. When I had my photos developed, most of the film had scratches on the negatives and nearly all the fifty rolls developed very poorly (very dark). Has anyone else experienced similar issues with Fujifilm? It was purchased at Costco. I am bitterly disappointed and frustrated at the cost of film, development and cameras.
There doesn't seem to be a pattern with any of the Fuji films (I use Sensia and Velvia, exclusively, and have never had a problem in my Canon EOS). There are reports that the Fuji Pro films will gum up the sprockets in a camera, thanks to an adhesive strip at the end of the roll, but I'm not sure if the regular 400 speed film has the same problem. You might try a thorough cleaning, and see if it is still happening. I'm not surprised that 400 speed comes out a tad dark. Try dropping to 200 speed (I generally won't use anything above 100 speed, unless it is black&while).
