    Got my new camera. I feel like a little kid (giddy laugh). I shot a few rolls, rushed down to the drugstore today, and got them developed. My first photos w/a 'real' camera...off and running!

    When the prints are grainy, what does that mean? Is it the film? The exposure?

    What a cute little girl! :) What was she taking a picture of here?

    When the pictures are grainy, that is usually from a higher speed film. What kind of film were you using?

    It could also be just a less than ideal machine print, as well - your negatives may be very sharp. If you just took the film to a quickie developing place, I'd bet it's the latter. ;)

    Thanks for the comments everyone...
    She was taking a picture of the trees in our backyard.

    Kodak 400...the combination of a high speed film and quickie development is probably not good, huh? (I was just so damn impatient...oh well)

    Pentax ZX-M. So far, so good. It 'feels' good, if that makes sense. We'll see how the next rolls turn out!

    yay for Pentax! ;) I have a Pentax MZ S and use an old Pentax ME for infrared.

    I'd blame the film this time. Pentax has pretty good glass. You might try a 200 speed film and see how you like it. Of course 100 speed film is even better.

    For me, grain looks awesome in B&W. I love shooting Kodak TMax 400 - great stuff!
