The Praktica is just about as basic an SLR camera as you can get and the Domiplan is supposedly one of the worst lenses ever produced in quantity but combined with an old film such as APX 400 and oldschool developer you get pretty nice, vintage looking results. That said, more than a few frames were out of focus (very basic finder) and exposure was at least a little off on pretty much all of them (sunny 16 and who knows how inaccurate the shutter speeds are). Film was Agfa APX 400, developed in Adonal 1+25 for 11:30 at 20°C. Negatives came out super flat and I had to turn contrast up to 11 in post which exaggerated grain to the extreme. Here's 5 frames that came out decent enough:

Thought it was grain, heh...

Atherwise nice stuff. Most the last one seems to me by my taste.
