Would like to share some photos I took with the P12 prototype.

The first five shots were taken on a sunny day. Instax film has ISO 800, according to the Sunny 16 rule I should use f/16 aperture and 1/800 speed. But Lubitel shutter provides speeds up to 1/250. Even if I use the smallest aperture provided by the lens f/22, then the speed should be 1/400, which is almost two times faster then the shutter offers. In other words, sensitivity of Instax film was too much for the lightning conditions. I decided to compensate excess of light by taking pictures against sun light. It gave an effect of +1EV or +2EV.
