Vegas for the Weekend

Yeah! Going to Vegas for the weekend! The only thing bettr is actually being 21… Why couldn’t we wait for a few months!

Ok still, I wanted to relax on this trip but still take some cool photos so i packed light, Bringing only 3 small cameras.

– My Canonet with some 800 speed film for night time shots. Don’t know if this makes any sense but I don’t really get night time photography. Wanted to test the petris 7 at Vegas but realized that its ISO only goes to 400.

– The Diana Mini with Ektar 100 and 200 speed Lucky film for the day. Wanted this toy camera so bad and got it for Christmas from my lovely sisters! But was disappointed by all its problems and after 2 rolls, never picked it up again. So trying it out again with bettr film and bettr knowledge on how to use it.

– And last, my EP-1. Mostly for my daily photos and some videos.

Ok then byebye until next week with some photos!

The guys and their cars…

Just playing around with some Kodak Portra 800. Looking for some good night film so I decided to try it out for fun.

Minolta SRT 200

Hey guys, here’s a SLR I picked up from a thrift store. A Minolta SRT 200. I don’t know much about Minolta in general, but the lens it came with is ok, not as sharp as my other ones but good enough I think. This camera has an odd shutter release that pulls a shutter thing (?) over when cocked and releases it when shot. It’s hard to explain but because of that, it feels really different when shooting. My friend says it makes the camera sound cheap, but I think it gives it its own charm.

Also this camera has some pretty good vignetting, just look at the first photo.

I ran some Fuji Superia and some Ilford B&W and here’s what I got.

Overall it’s a fun camera to use when I’m bored using my Canonet or DSLR.

Latr guys!

Yashica Electro 35 GS – Need Help!

Ok so I go this Yashica Electro 35 GS because I love 35mm rangefinders. I got it pretty cheap but I can’t seem to get the meter to work. Apparently they don’t make the batteries needed for this camera anymore. If anyone has any suggestions or advice please let me know!

Also I’ve tried using a PX28A 6v battery with a spring, but it doesn’t seem to work either.
