    Actually I know where I have seen thus effect before, from a camera that wouldn't stop down at all, threw the scanner for a total loop

    Try another roll and get the scan CD from the lab. It will give you a better idea if the camera is working properly.

    I wonder if the film was under exposed. Are the negatives too clear, or too dark, when you look through them?

    What you can do also is if you have digital camera: make a photo of negative against some diffuse light, and edit it in photoshop / gimp and then you can see if it is a scanner problem. See on youtube how to scan negative with digital camera.

    The scan from an older negative that I posted earlier in the thread was scanned in with exactly the same scanner. I also remembered that it took several days for the film to be processed as they told me when I brought it in that their processor was down for repairs. I have a roll of bw in there now but I'm going to send my next color roll out.It also reminds me of xprocessing filters in lightroom

    If you're talking about the cat picture it looks equally bad. I would buy some proper pro film like portra or ektar and make sure it's not expired, then give/send the roll to a lab with a good reputation for dev and scans. That way you know where the error lies and what kind of quality you should expect.

    You're shooting a 1.8 lens wide open with ISO 400 film in daylight with an FG?

    For starters, when shooting outdoor daylight, I suggest stopping the lens down to about f/8 or more and working on your focus and hand-holding -- use a tripod if necessary.

    And, use another lab too.

    Are you sure your camera is working properly?

    Thanks for the suggestions!...yeah I have to learn the settings on this one. I've been using the little indicator in the viewfinder to adjust my shutter speed and have been adjusting aperture based on what I was taking. Yes, that is my plan...get some good color film (I have good b/w) and send it to a good lab..suggestions in the US? I'm certainly not going to trust the place I went with my film again...I believe they are the most likely suspect. I've seen Blue Moon and The Dark Room on the analog sites.

    I'm not 100% sure how the camera is operating since I just got it. However, I have no reason to believe there's anything wrong with it. The scanner is not an expensive one so this is probably a matter of I get what I paid for.

    Just take it to Costco. Get their scan CD and prints. Total less than $10. Can't beat them for C-41 35mm processing.

    Second choice, Walgreen's - CVS - Rite-Aid - Target.

    Get in the ballpark then work on the nuances.

    Chances are good your camera is OK.

    --Oh. and cheap color film from the drugstore is best at this time. Kodak Gold 200 or 400 or Fujifilm 200 or 400 or any of the store brand. All are great films.

    Once you get proper results you will love film photography.

    Oh...OK Thanks!...I'm not sure if Target still processes film in my area but I can check. CVS and Walgreen's are also convenient. I'm going to be by a CVS tomorrow and I'll see if they have the film.
