Bummed

I had a morning at Cape Banks. I did many lovely HDR phtoos which can be seen on my flickr and I had taken my analogue bag,. As the scenery was so lovely, I took my fresh film from Lomography in Hongkong.  Mostly 200 and 400 film.  All colour. I wanted to capture the beauty around me in analogue. My trusty Lubitel 166B and Cmema and to get the 360 view, my Spinner 360.
I was very excited to drop off 4 Medium format films and the spinner film to my developer and even more excitedly went to pick them up today.

Spinner Roll 3 x-ray damage?


Here I was crestfallen. My lovely photos were monochomatic. All green. Now I have used these cameras before and gotten nice colours with a ISO 100 Fujicolor film (Expired) and I had such high hopes for the Chrome 200.  I thought of many reasons but these films are the only ones I have received from overseas. All others film so far, I have received has come from Australia, and so not gone throught the stringent customs x-rays that these had.

See! It can do normal colours

I wonder is there would be another suggestion. I am open to ideas.

All I can say was the detail was captured faithfully, and IF I had been after lomo style photos I would be thrilled but I wanted colour.. :-(  Seriously bummed

I has in a happy bubbly mood this AM only to find this brought me down with a crash. Damn.
