    The photos on your web site look good, are they taken with the same film and camera you are now having problems with?

    There is a difference between 100 asa and 400 asa. 100 is good for bright days with a lot of light and the 400 will be good with lower light levels like indoors or shady and overcast days ect.Not knowing if you camera has shutter speed control and aperture controls makes a difference too.

    What camera are you using? A Lomo of some sort? If that's the case, they have a set aperture and shutter speed, right?

    Also, what do you mean by completely black? Are you looking at a photo CD, the actual negatives, or minilab prints?

    Many factors going on here... If you're talking about scans/prints, then perhaps you took these pictures inside? If that's the case, ISO100 film + the "slow" lenses typical of a Lomo type camera would definitely result in black images. Take a look at the negatives, are they more or less clear? (save for the orange of the film obviously)

    Take the stuff outside and photograph something in bright sunlight. You state that you have a functioning camera, but fail to say what it is and how you expose the film. There is a very good chance it is the lab's fault, change labs.

    Yeah you hit the nail on the head, the almost pitch black ones where taken inside (you can see light through the window but everything inside is pitch black)

    What do you really mean by "pitch black"? Are you seeing this on your negatives or prints? It shows two separate extreme conditions - either super over-exposure or under-exposure....

    You can't really tell what lighting condition you need for a given ISO range until you know the shutter speed and aperture.... what camera are you using?
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    Indeed, telling us what camera you are using would be very helpful. (it's been asked half a dozen times... )

    But that's you're problem in general, your pictures are severely underexposed. Try 400 for inside, but even that might give you kinda dark photos.

    The lomo type cameras have very slow lenses, probably like f/8-f/11 I'm guessing?

    You'll have much better success by using that camera outside, in which case the 100 will probably suit you well, but 400 in anything but direct sunlight will probably work ok too.

    You haven't come clean about what camera you're shooting. No more till you do, OK?

    He has a Lomo Fisheye 2. He posted a few days ago about it...here is his camera. I believe it has 1/100 shutter and B.

    I bet he is shooting inside at 1/100. With an F8 lens, I can see what it would be dark.

    What we dont know is what ISO does he have (100?).

    What shutter speed did he use?

    Info re his camera that I google'd
