    what was your iso? They are super grainy, it looks like you may have had your camera set at one ISO and the film speed was actually a different ISO. Although thats just a guess on my end..

    What kelly said seems to make sense. I just dont get how you could have your camera choose settings automaticly and have the shots come out so bad.
