Another Roll From the Rollei (35TE)

Back in July, I posted a story about using my Rollei 35TE for the first time in a long while. The compact design and solid feel of this camera has made it a joy to use.  It is quirky, for sure. but once one gets  used to the controls, it's a no-brainer to use. Back in August/September, I put in a roll of the Kodak Hawkeye Surveillance Film -a  C-41 color film that looks like a 400 ISO Ektar.  I took a few shots around town, and even used the flash once at a meeting of the Ann Arbor Area Crappy Camera Club.  All the exposures came out great.  That film is really something, and worth trying out.  You can get individual rolls from the Film Photography project store.
T Paul at the A3C3 meeting, back in September.  The hotshoe is on the bottom of the camera, so you need to hold it upside down for a more appropriate flash position. I doubt that many ever used a flash with this camera.

You can see that the Color Hawkeye film is excellent.  I did not adjust the scans from the processor. The excellent lens  on the Rollei and the  latitude of the Color Surveillance Film  really made these images pop.
