    Photos NOT OK to edit
    This is a contact sheet from negatives taken with my wifes P&S film camera. I suspect the brighter frames are where she's used a flash but should there be such a huge difference in exposure between frames or should they all roughly be about the same?

    That all depends upon how good you are in a number of ways, so theoretically they should all be the same.
    In practice it rarely works like that.
    But contacts are done for only a couple of reasons:
    To see what you've got and index the film.
    To see if it's in focus and worth printing.
    Never used to worry too much about them as long as I could see an image.

    i am always bracketing so mine are all different densities, so no they dont all have to be the same.
