AgfaPhoto Vista Plus 200 / Canon T70 / Film / food + coffee / photowalk

If you shoot a lot of 35mm film or collect pre-loved cameras, you’re probably familiar with the merits of cheap film; and if you’re based in the UK, you probably know where to find it. If you don’t, well, Flickr fingers will likely point you towards Poundland.

This is Agfa Vista Plus 200, shot on a clunky, AA battery-powered Canon T70; an apt pairing for a fine summer morning in Bermondsey. When it comes to the T70, the livelier the setting, the better – it’s got a loud motor.

These photos were taken on a triple-market photowalk along the railway arches at Spa Terminus, down Druid Street, and through Maltby Street. ‘Scuse the underexposure.
