    Ok, so I shot a roll of expired (by 43 years) 120 Pan through the camera. I was guessing at exposures, as I didn't have my Sekonic handy when I took them. I also picked up a roll of fresh film when I picked up the negs/CD, so I'll probably be running it through soon.

    Below is are 4 examples of how they turned out, unprocessed. They have close to zero contrast, and kind of cruddy overall. Is this a film problem, a photographer problem, or a camera problem. I realize it'll be guess-work, but just looking for some opinions on where the major problem appears to be. I'm leaning towards the film.

    Thanks for all the help!

    Well the film is 43 years old. I have never shot film that old but I have seen old color film that produced faded, off colors and lack of contrast.

    Try running a new roll through it and see what you get.

    Well, grabbed my daughter yesterday, and a fresh roll of Ilford B&W, and shot the roll. I guessed metering (again), but I think I did a lot better. They came back looking just fine. Here are a couple of samples. If you want to see the whole roll, it's here. One photo looks like there were light leaks, but it was the first frame, and I had to load the film twice, as I'm not very smooth with 120, so... yeah.

    My S2 tends to leak light through the darkslide slot a few frames out of a roll, I simply keep a piece of electrical tape over the darkslide slot and load the camera with the back attached. The only lens I have is the Nikkor 75mm F2.8, and it is one of the sharpest lenses I've ever used rivaling the Mamiya-Sekor lens on my RB67.
