    Since it is really over due, I thought it about time I closed the cheap as chips challenge!

    The Idea was to buy a camera and film for less than £10, dev the film, and post the three best shots without any post process...

    In case you missed it, here is the thread where we discussed the rules and peoples camera choices... at length!

    Some good ones to choose from there guys.
    It's been a hard decision for me, my favourite image goes to Chris's "Lifeguard Station 29" but I think my vote for the full set goes to Brian Moore.

    Did you know the camera had film in Hamish?

    SWMBO came home, saw the Trip, and said 'have you bought another b****y camera?' :D :D :D

    Have any frames been exposed Chris? This could be interesting!! ;)

    Haha ... They will be my photos I'd have thought ... oops :)
    It is one of my personal collection, but since I picked up the chrome button one I thought I'd move it on :)
    Not sure what the photos will be of ... ... Probably my living room window and wall and some of a bright torch light from when I was testing the cell
    What sort of film is it?
    I shouldn't worry to much about deving it unless curiosity get the better of you ;)
    Hope you like it, they are really great p&s cameras!!
    Plenty of "soul" too of course ;)

    Pleaded the mug made it too, I was a little worried it wouldn't survive the trip ... (see what I ds there)

    Your secrets are safe with me Hamish :D

    Only found out there was a film in there when I wound on, felt some resistance, so opened the back to see what was going on!

    At least that's the official story... nuff said Pete - incriminating shots are in the mail :D :D :D
