Home Processing 3

I picked up this little point and shoot Olympus off eBay last year for a few dollars and really haven't used it all that much since the Leica CL is primarily in my bag. The lens isn't the greatest and the flash is a little weak but it takes some nice photos when the lightings right.

Finally managed to process the film at home without spots. Instead of the super hard tab water I have I ended up washing in distilled water for 10 minutes. Berggers a nice film. I picked it up in Hong Kong a while back. It's got some nice grain too it and some really nice contrast that reminds me of Tri-X. All the photo's were shot at 400.
