Hello everyone, I'm new to film and new to this forum. This is my first post. I just want to say hello to everyone and that I'm very excited to get started in developing film and taking pictures with film, as it has always been an interest to me, but money was always the factor that held me back. Aside from that, I'd like to express a concern. I just recently purchased a Canon EOS 1-V, and I was using Kodak 400 TX B&W film. I had the camera set at 400 ISO, and I was using the Av setting, which just adjusts the shutter speed according to the light available, ensuring a properly exposed photo. I went to develop the film, and apparently the woman who was developing the film told me that no images were on the film! I was in shock; the camera works beautifully. So I checked the film and there were slight images, just barely visible on some of the frames, but most of the film strip was blank. Did I do something wrong or did the woman ruin my roll of film? This film was developed at a cheap pharmacy photo department, I told them it was B$W film, but maybe they didn't hear me? I'm not sure. Anyway, I plan on developing my own film and building my own dark room, but I was just curious as to what could have happened. I hope there is nothing wrong with my camera. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Like I said, I'm completely new to all of this, and I don't plan on bringing my film to any cheap photo department ever again. I'll try a professional place while I save money to build my own darkroom. Thanks again everyone and I look forward to meeting all of you.
