A few words missing in this text– it was MORE than twenty years old when I bought it: and I’ve probably NOT put more than a dozen films throughout it. Share this:TweetLike this:Like Loading...

It weighs over a kilo! Get some film! Better put more rolls in it then! Meter is overrated anyways 😀 I’d love to but the price is prohibitive where I live. But what’s your comment re the meter about? I’m sorry i don’t understand… It’s a beautiful piece of ‘optical engineering’ That’s enough for me! 🙂 If you need help finding cheaper film, I could try and help you depending on your location, there are places online that sells them for a good price. When I talked about the meter, what I meant was like “we don’t need meter :)” The camera is sure a beauty, cheers! Thanks for the offer! I did a Masters in photography a couple of years back which I did digitally.. I never liked darkroom work hence I was no good at it. So my main thing was colour and what I loved was using Kodachrome 25/64 – that was great. What I like most though is the feel of a piece of equipment like the Yashica. Somebody loaned me a Hasselblad xPan a long while ago- that was wonderful! I’m not anti new technology – i just think that it is so easy, people don’t think about it anymore. Next year I’m planning to run courses in ‘Slow Photography’ – digital, yes but ‘taking time taking pictures’ that’s the tag line! Bye for now! https://rowlandjones.wordpress.com/2011/03/16/finishing-the-film-and-the-tlr/ Here’s the baby in all her glory! Any thoughts? Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
