Film test at the beach – Nikon One Touch (AF3)

I recently had the opportunity to grab my Nikon One Touch, load a roll of very expired Fujicolor, and hit the beach.

Nikon One Touch (AF3) is out and about.
Not the best choice for testing a camera but I wanted to see what this kind of hard-to-find “commercial” film would look like this expired (Feb 2001).
The Nikon leaves a nice bit of the film leader exposed at the end of the roll.

The camera worked perfectly but as hard as the film lab tried, this older Fujicolor film tended to be a bit too green.

The bird must have read the sign… the guy not so much.
If you don’t have a 4×4 then you shouldn’t go past this sign. AWD doesn’t cut it!

This expired roll of Fujifilm was all I had sitting around so I thought I’d give it a go. As I said, the camera works just fine but that’s the last time I’ll use expired film to test a camera! The Nikon is now available in my shop at – thanks for stopping by, Chris
