Hallsands: ruined coastal village, Devon

Hallsands 1

Hallsands is a ruined coastal hamlet near Start Point on the south coast of Devon.

The village was devastated during a storm about a century ago, and a few ruins remain along with a couple of houses that are still inhabited.

First four pictures taken with a Minolta Vectis S-1 and 80-240 APO lens with rather outdated film (hence the poor image quality)

Fujifilm Fotonex 1000ix MRC Tiara

A slightly battered example found on eBay for less than a fiver.

A fixed focal length APS film camera that’s quite pocketable – when closed (the lower cover is over the flash and lens) it’s smaller than a credit card in area.

I haven’t been able to find a manual yet and would appreciate a scan or photocopy if anyone reading this has one to share (I haven’t figured out to do mid-roll change yet).

(Update – manual supplied by a kind reader – contact me if you’re looking for one yourself.)

I put one outdated (4 years) film through the camera:

Riverside in Port Meadow

More from the late July photowalk with the Oxford Flickr group.

These pictures were taken with a Minolta Vectis S-1 APS SLR camera and outdated Activix 200 APS film.

Exposed normally, the pictures have come out quite grainy in these commercial scans. These scans were processed in ACR and Photoshop Elements to reduce noise and to despeckle, and then reduced in size by 50%

Port Meadow skies

Port meadow is a lovely expanse of common land just to the north of Oxford city centre. It’s low and flat and home to huge skies.
