Black and white...and then color!
I'm not at all happy with how the black and white roll came out. I've run rolls of b&w through this camera and gotten great results but now I'm using a different lab so I'm hoping that is the cause of pretty much every frame not being crisp and in focus. I mean, I'm no Ansel Adams but I know how to focus a lens on something 3 feet away. There's no reason (that I can think of) that the portraits should look as subpar as they do or some of the shots I know I had totally centered in the viewfinder should be that far off to one side. The contrast I was hoping for is slim to none as well. 

I'm happier with the color roll but I guess there's only so much I can expect from a $20 flea market camera. Open to any and all 35mm film camera suggestions. I don't have the $$$ to drop on a Leica or Contax but if someone reads this and has any other ideas I'm all ears. I realize my Pentax MV isn't the thoroughbred of SLR's but I picked it up on the cheap and I do love the size and feel and "snap" of it. 

As always, thanks for looking.
