I guess it's just as important to share your failures as well as successes, I picked up a roll of 35mm last Saturday from a new spot  I took them to the 1hr processor this morning, seems I forgot to replinish my desiccant packs I got a whole roll of film with a barely visable brown spot in the middle of a milky haze.

Condensation formed on the UV filter inside the box and It appears a young doe snapped a whole roll of film from 6:30 am to 7:30am on the morning of 07/29 early enough that the heat had not evaporated  the water from the inside surface of the filter. Oh well, I check my digital tomorrow or Friday morning, now did I put a desiccant pack in the box or not? Hmmm don't remember.....

Pelican 1120, I just forgot  to add the desiccant, we had rain, heat (100+)  and high humidity. The case passed the "shower" test and sat face down in a tub of water to make sure it was weatherproof when I put it together....
