Let’s spend a moment to take in the glorious beauty of the La Sardina before we proceed…
This is the recipe of Today’s Special!
We would need :
1) a La Sardina, and as you can see above, I have one gorgeous piece,
2) a Lomographer (this would be ME!) and of couse,
3) a roll of film!
Today’s weapon of choice : Lomography Redscale XR (Extended Range of 50-400iso)
The next few photos will show you the film is being loaded into the La Sardina 🙂
#1. Press the lever to release the back cover.
#2. Peel it open…
#3. Pull up the rewind knob, to make space for loading the film cassette.
#4. Fill the cassette in, with the film leader extending towards the right / take-up spool.
#5. Fold the film leader so that it stays snuggly on the take-up spool.
#6. Make sure you hook the sprocket (the little holes) onto the take-up spool.
#7. Check that the ‘teeth’ of the crank is also catching onto the sprocket hole(s).
#8. Close the back cover, but you’re not ready to shoot just yet.
#9. Wind the knob until it stops, the film counter should be pointing at “1”.
#10. You’re READY TO SHOOT! (P.S: Please remember to remove the lens cover!)
