Print from underexposed negative

When a simple camera is loaded with slow film and used in dim lighting, the negative will be underexposed. The same effect will result if slow film is loaded in the camera but an ultra-fast ISO value is set on the camera (see Figure 48.23).

Fault prevention: Keep to sunny conditions when you are photographing with very basic equipment. If possible, check what ISO value the camera is set for. (As this is typical of the best print possible off a nearly transparent negative, you are unlikely to improve on the result.)
